The Best Man
It has all the makings of a picture-perfect wedding. There’s just one detail that could have used a little more planning…
Hulking ex–rugby player Spencer Carlisle has crushed on Daffodil McGregor since high school. On the field he knew the moves. Off, he was a clueless clod who never gained an advantage. Rejected and rebuffed, his infatuation finally cooled—like ice.
First of all, let me say, my apologies to Natasha Anders. She's a total sweetheart and gave this ARC to me and how did I repay her?
By taking MONTHS to finish it.
For real though.
Not cool of me.
I'm sure you can all relate to this, but I am a moody AF reader on super steroids.
I will binge on one trope of romance and blow through six books in one weekend and then I will turn around and not touch that genre for months.
Also, *confession time* straight contemporary romance (with no sp ...more
As a long time fan of all things Natasha Anders, I don't even bother to read the blurb before adding her books. But when I saw that this book will featured Daisy's sister and Mason's older brother from The Wingman, I was that much more excited.
If you haven't read this series yet and are expecting it to be on the same level of angst as some of Natasha's previous books, you're in for some disappointment. While there's definitely emotion brimming from the pages of these stories, it's not tha ...more
I always rate and review the plot, the characters and the message/moral of the story.
I didn’t particularly like the previous book in this series – The Wingman – and I didn’t plan on reading this one, but then I saw some reviews saying that the heroine was a ‘bad’ one, even an a§§… And since my understanding of the strong and different heroine leaves me often in the minority, I took it as a sign, that this heroine could be a sassy, maybe even b*tc ...more
I was so excited to get this ARC for the follow-up to The Wingman. This was Daff and Spencer’s story. We got a glimpse of Spencer and Daff in “The Wingman” and I just knew their story was going to be good.
Spencer and Daff’s story went all the way back to school, where Spencer had a hopeless crush on the popular Daff. Caving to peer pressure and the need to fit in, Daff was a typical “mean girl” to Spencer.
On the surface, this seemed lik ...more
Can’t lie Natasha Anders is an author that takes me to my happy place. I have adored every book that she has written and book two in the Alpha Men series, did not disappoint.
Daffodil McGregor had been treating him like a second-class citizen since… well, since forever, really, and he was done with her.
The Best Man gives us Daff and Spencer Carlisle’s story, we met both of them in book one; The Wingman and this story is based around Daisy ...more
She was a bitch to him, I mean a B.I.T.C.H., in junior high. (view spoiler)[He wrote her poetry, and she read it to her as mean-as-snakes friends. Let's face it, there is nothing worse than a middle school/junior high girl for cruelty. (hide spoiler)]
She is a bitch now.
Stupid or desperate. (view spoiler)[On top of that, she's either too stupid or too desperate for a man so she stayed in several dom/sub relationships, and she's not even into that.. One for three y ...more
The Best Man (Alpha Men, #2)
by Natasha Anders
Expected publication: April 24th 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance - Adult
A short excerpt:
“It was just a kiss, for God’s sake,” Daff said with some of her old spark.
“Why do you have to overthink things like this?
Why can’t we just be in the moment and share a kiss?”
“Because we weren’t just in a moment. You showed up at my house at two thirty in the morning, soaking wet, rambling on about liking me, and then you planted your mouth on mine in the most ...more
I loved the first book of this series ( The Wingman ). It was a ugly duckling story, but with 'The Best Man' we get the complete opposite.
Daff (our h) is not a nice person. She's bitchy, self centered and treats Spencer ( the H) like dirt.
Spencer is in love with her since high school and she never ever even thought about giving him a chance.
Sounds like a great start for a romance, doesn't it?
It's a complicated story and I truly understand why everyone seems to hate Daff. Spencer is su ...more
I LOVED Spencer and the chivalrous principles he held so dear. What a great character. The writing was executed very well, as I always expect from this author.
But I just couldn’t stand Daff and all her non-issues, and they really were non-issues. What a complete and utter wet blanket. She didn’t deserve Spencer, and she ruined this book ...more

I love this author and was anxious to get this arc. I remember Daff from the The wing man, and honestly did not like her. While I still thought she could be a bitch, her behavior was explained. I just didn’t think it was a good enough reason. Poor Spencer bent over backwards for her, all the way back to high school (or before) and she was pretty mean to him.
That being said, I’m really looking forward to Lia’s book.
Daff has her own hangups. After years of dating the wrong men and pretending to be interested in all the things they are. She doesn't know who she is anymore.
I wasn't to su ...more

Chapter 2 of the third book and this heroine (Daff) is complaining because Spencer won’t let her move in because he wants to set a good example for his younger sister! She’s a total bitch! He wants to be a good role model for his sister and she’s pissed because she can’t have sex with him every night? She’s also pissed and called the last six months “wasted” time because he hasn’t proposed yet? Gah...WTF did Spencer ever see in this bit ...more
