The Best Man was a fun, sexy, and sweet story! I loved Barbie’s take on ‘The Best Man’ and how it was thrown into this story-line. It made for a highly entertaining and slightly angsty read that I enjoyed very much.

Veronica Webber is recently divorced and now living in the big city. She’s starting over and doing things on her own terms. One night, she decides to go out on her own and she gets a blast from the past at the bar she’s at. Trevor Allen is there. Trevor used to be good fr

”Now who’s the best man?”


Barbie Bohrman delivers a unique twist on “the best man” scenario storyline that made for an enjoyable, sweet, and sexy read. Trevor Allen had gotten socks knocked off at the sight of a gorgeous woman at his college graduation party. Just seconds before he’s ready to put the moves on her, his college best friend, Daniel introduces her as his fiancée.


The story is told in alternate povs as the author then takes us nine years into the present where our once confi

The first time Trevor Allen spotted Veronica Webber across a crowded graduation party, it was major lust at first sight. Being a manho of the first caliber meant Trevor wasn’t concerned about the ifs of getting his femme fatale into bed, only how long it might take.

There was just one problem.

“Veronica, this is Trevor.” Daniel then turned to me. “Trevor, this is Veronica.” He paused thoughtfully as I continued to stare into her perfect almond-shaped eyes, and then he final

Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books

9 years ago man-ho extraordinaire Trevor locks eyes with a beautiful woman at his graduation party. He is in lust from the first moment. A couple seconds later his hopes to score are dashed. The lady is his best friend's fiance.

9 years later Veronica has moved back to New York after her divorce from Daniel. Her ex-husband had cheated on her for most of their marriage. To celebrate her three-months anniversary of being in New York she wants to cele

Overall Opinion: Man! I really struggled with this one! I wanted to like it, because the premise was pretty unique and it instantly made me want to read it -- but sadly it just didn't work out for me. The pacing was probably my biggest complaint. I felt it lagged way too much. I wouldn't even say it was the "slow burn" (they don't even kiss until 62%) that bothered me -- it was the fact that I felt like NOTHING seems to happen in the first half of the book! It's all inner dialogue! The c

I really enjoyed this book. A friends-to-lovers story with a delicious twist, it’s funny, heartfelt, hot and romantic with characters that you can’t help but fall for. Such a fun read, I loved it!

Veronica is fresh from a recent divorce after a very unhappy marriage and she has moved to NYC to get a fresh start. Coming out from under the thumb of her husband and her controlling mother, she is determined to get out and life her life the way she wants. I love Veronica. She’s smart, sensible

The Best Man by Barbie Bohrman is a refreshing, sweet and sexy story that easily blends friendship, love, and second chances. Bohrman held my attention as she put a fun twist in this contemporary romance as she created a story of two acquaintances reuniting and discovering that second chances do exist.

The Best Man is a new series of books that are about the Allen Brothers. I believe that they are all standalones that intertwine. I will tell you this much, I plan to read them all! This is my second read by Barbie Bohrman; she delivered a second book that I couldn’t put down. I needed to see if Trent and Veronica would get the HEA they deserve.

I’ve always enjoyed Barbie Bohrman’s books (seriously, if you haven’t picked up Promise Me or Playing It Safe, do that now). They have strong heroines, sexy as heck alpha males, and the stories are always entertaining. The Best Man is more of the same.

Readers will enjoy the character of Veronica. She is straight up classy. From how she dresses, to how she acts, to her interactions with others, readers will just adore this heroine. What is al

Veronica and Trevor had an interesting story. I really liked that the forbidden aspect of it was both in the past and also impacting their current relationship. Usually, the forbidden is no longer an issue once enough time has passed or the situation changes...but in this case, it is still there years later.

Veronica and Trevor have a past. He was the best man at her wedding...and now that the marriage has fallen apart, there is an attrac

This is my first book by Barbie Bohrman and right away I'm intrigued. How she would approach to this "best man" scenario, how she would play it. My first impression of Trevor Allen is not the best though. He's cocky and a player, pretty douchey too from his spiel alone. But then he gets stunned by the dazzling woman he must approach. Cue record scratch, it's his friends fiancée. Oops time to backtrack and off limits for now.

Fast forward to nine years later we get the jist of what happened to Ver

Review by Lisa Kane

Trevor Allen first thought when he spotted Veronica across the room was that he had to have her. Now. This minute. But then Daniel Spencer introduced her as his fiancee.

Years have gone by and Veronica is now divorced from her cheating louse of a husband, Daniel. She's doing her best starting over-new job, new apartment, new attitude. So when she runs into Trevor Allen at a bar and he's been a witness to an embarrassing encounter she

I have read a few books from this author and this one is the best so far. I really enjoyed this book. I really liked Veronica and Trevor. Trevor was a playboy but he was really a good guy once he met Veronica. I like that even though he wanted her, he was really committed to being her friend because that what she needed at the time. I also liked Veronica. She was really everything I like in a heroine. The chemistry between the these two was off the charts. I knew Trevor should have listened to h ...more

Pretty much going to make this short and sweet. I enjoyed this story but I felt it was a little too insta love for me. I know Trevor and Veronica have a past history but I would have liked a slower burn between the two characters. We had some funny moments, a meddling mother who couldn't take a hint and of course ex-husband drama. This is the perfect book to read after a heavy read and you need to regroup. Overall I was left satisfied with this book and looking forward to continuing th

Another great read from Barbie Bohrman!I've read her other book-Something More Than This and I loved it, and I was hoping this one also wouldn't disappoint.My favorite part about her books and writing are the characters, and the way they develop along with the relationships between them.

Patricia  Lee (A Literary Perusal)
The Best Man is a light and fun read with likeable characters, witty banter, and laughter inducing text messages. This friends-to-lovers tale, hailed as a romantic comedy, was charming and enjoyable.

There was an obvious chemistry between Veronica and Trevor despite their determination to keep the relationship in the friend-zone. Watching them fight the pull was frustrating but watching them succumb to the magnetism made it worthwhile in this slow-burning romance.

I'll say it again, I'm a huge fan of friends to lovers stories. So,I was really looking forward to reading The Best Man. Trevor was the best man at Veronica's wedding. Now she is divorced and living in the city. A chance meeting might mean a chance at love for them. I wanted to love this story. I did like it, I just didn't love it.

My favorite part of the story was Veronica. I loved how she got on with her life and stood up for herself no matter what. It took a lot of guts to walk away from her c

What a perfect match they make and I love every single thing about them.
I was kind of intrigued with the plot of the best man have a crush on the bride. And it is way more interesting years later when the now divorced ex-bride accidentally meets again with the before-mentioned best man.

When I read the summery of Barbie Bohrman’s book The Best Man some of my prejudiced tendencies came out to play, but I will be the first to admit I was wrong. I thought this book would be the classic and cliché “guy falls for best friends girl” story but this book delivered a twist on the best man trope that I didn’t expect.

The night of Trevor Allen’s college graduation party, he sees a gorgeous woman who knocks his socks off. However as he goes to introduce himself, he is shocked when his best

This was a fun, cute friends-to-lovers story, with a little bit of angst thrown in for good measure. Trevor and Veronica know each other in passing from years ago, with Veronica making more of an impression on Trevor than she ever knew. Having run across each other again a friendship blossoms, with Trevor still harboring an attraction for Veronica, one that hasn't waned in all the years since their first meeting. Not wanting to cause any waves he puts his attraction aside and they settle into an
