Addison Murphy is the funny friend, the girl you grab a beer with—the girl voted most likely to start her own sweatshirt line. And now that one of her best guy friends is getting married, she’ll add “groomsman” to that list, too. She’ll get through this wedding if it’s the last thing she does. Just don’t ask her to dive for any bouquet.

5+ stars read for me!

I LOVED this friends to lovers story. This is my first book by Cindi Madsen and her writing style sucked me in from the get-go. Despite not having much in common with tomboy Addison Murphy, I immediately bonded with her and felt her vulnerability so acutely, which is not an easy feat for a story told

Cindi Madsen is the queen of feel good books. She writes these amazing characters that I can relate too, and feel for. This is the perfect vacation read, fun, uplifting, sexy and filled with good vibes.

This book centers around a man Tucker, who left his small town to practice law at a big city law firm only to find it didn't make him happy. He moves back home and runs into a pair of sexy legs sticking out from under a car that happen to belong to his childhood BFF and one of "the boys". This att

Just One of the Groomsmen by Cindi Madsen

Things are changing for Tucker and Addie. And between them.
Friends to lovers story. A charming contemporary romance filled with poignant moments of self awareness and changing emotions.

Addie has been a tomboy all her life. Her best friends are the four men she grew up with. She plays football, plays poker and generally feels the most comfortable with them. But now that one of the four is getting married, she’ll need to wear a dress and heels to the wedd

My first Cindi Madsen novel and it was FANTASTIC!!! The PERFECT Friends to Lovers small town romance... I loved every bit of it. The characters. The banter. The heart pangs that hurt so good. It all felt perfectly authentic with just the right amount of believable trepidation, reluctant attraction, and self preservation warring with unexpected emotion. So so so good!!!

I’m a sucker for a good BFF to more story, but add in that it’s set in the south and I’m done.

I really liked Addie and Tucker. I enjoyed their history and banter. I liked that she was a tough smart ass who kept all of the boys in their place. He’s a little insecure about some things, but steadfast. I am 100000% here for the loyalty this group has for each other. I love love loved their friendships and it was probably the best part of the story.

Plot wise, it did drag a little for me. GR

I loved this book so much! It was such a fun, sweet Friends-to-More story and I couldn’t get enough of it.

I don’t really like to use words like “swoony” or “feels”, but Addie and Tucker made my cold, black heart feel all the feelings. I loved their friendship and I loved how it turned into more. The friendship lines aren’t really crossed until about halfway through the book and the slow burn was everything. I actually ma

This for me is another win for Cindi Madsen. Really adored this book and the setting.

Sweet, friends to lover story with humor and some funny awkward and also smexy stuff.

I think what I like most about her books that they are light and fun and her characters are always relatable, both guys and girls.

Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

It’s been a while since I have read a book by Cindi Madsen. I can’t even remember why really. I think there were maybe one or two books of hers that weren’t my thing, so I just didn’t pick up her next release or something. I’m really regretting that decision right now.

The title and cover of Just One of the Groomsmen caught my eye and my attention. I was really curious what being “just one of the groomsmen”

At least half of why I requested the ARC of this title had to do with the cover. It is so cute and vibrant and reminded me of another book (also about a wedding) that I loved. I had never heard of this author, but this will certainly not be the last book I read by her. I was delighted with this book within the first few pages, and it only got better as it went on, overall.

Addison (Addie) has unequivocally always been one of the guys (a set-up in fiction that isn't always enjoyable to read, for

I received an advance reader copy of this book from Net Galley. This had no influence on my review.

Just One of the Groomsmen was my introduction to Cindi Madsen. This will definitely not be the last of her books that I read. Abbie and Tucker have been best friends since forever. Tucker is a lawyer in the big city. He became so wrapped up in his job and had no time for himself that he realized he wasn't happy. So, he took the plunge and quit his job and went back home to Uncertainty. That is wher

5 Star Review of One of the Groomsmen (Getting Hitched in Dixie #1) by Cindi Madsen
Cindi Madsen is a new author to me and I have no idea why that is. I loved this book. From chapter one until the end the story that Ms.Madsen wove had me thoroughly entertained and captivated.
When Tucker Crawford return to his small hometown the last thing he expects is to be attracted to one of his best friends Addison Murphy.
Can Tucker convince Addie to give him a chance? The chemistry is electrifying and the

Addison is just one of the guys. Her best friends are all men and she enjoys soccer, football and poker nights. When one of the guys gets married he invites Addison to be a groomsmen.
Tucker is part of Addison's group of friends but has moved to the big city to become a lawyer. Before the wedding he decides to move back to town and finds himself having feelings for Addison. Will their love story affect their group of friends?

Addie (Never call her Addison) Murphy is just one of the guys, that's how she grew up that's how the town of uncertainty sees her and that's how she ends up as a "groomsman" wearing a dress in one of her best friends weddings.

that should be all well and good expect for one little Issue, Tucker Crawford, her best friend in the whole world is back in town, he quite his high power job and came back to their sleepy town. which should send her jumping for joy, and it does until they cross that line

Do you ever need that guaranteed book to make you smile? The one that delivers just what it promises? This is that kind of book.

It's a cute story about "one of the guys" who's really a girl. Addison has a tight knit group of friends who all just happen to be guys. She ends up developing chemistry with one of the boys when he returns home after being gone for a while. The friendship dynamic is chal

This is a NEW to me author & books! Thank you very much to the publisher & author for my adorable mass paperback!! There is just something about a NEW to you that's on paperback!!

This is a FUN story read as I call them because there is a lot of laughter, passion and just life. Tucker is a man who left his hometown to pursue his happiness, sadly being what he is (the successful lawyer) isn't what made him happy after-all. When he moves back home and run's into HER again, hi

This was my first Cindi Madsen book and I really enjoyed it. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but I love a good friends to lover romance and this story fit the bill. I love the bond that Addie had with all of her boy-friends. The fact that she was just “one of the guys” from high school really cemented the relationship she had with all of them. Of course Tucker was one of her closest friends and that’s where it gets complicated.
I love a book that actually lets us get a feel for the character

It has to be different living in a town called Uncertainty. I would think there would be a lot of jokes about people being uncertain about many things. I am certain that Addie and her best friends were not the norm, especially since she was the only girl with four guys as her best friends! Tucker, one of the best friends, had moved away to be part of a law practice, but was not happy. I loved how the “guys” always got together to play poker, football, drink, and watch football.

Very cute! So this is a friends to lovers story. Addie and Tucker have been friends since they were kids, in fact these two along with three other boys have hung out all their lives. Addie's is your quintessential tomboy who loves watch football, playing poker, or playing football with her friends. Tucker has been away for few years getting his education and working. He has now come home and these two can't stop having inappropriate thought

Colleen's Conclusions
Did not finish about 20 percent. There's nothing that's terrible about this. I liked the circle of friends and how tight they were, but I missed the connection otherwise here. I wasn't engaged enough to keep going and I don't read books if they feel like they're becoming a chore. I did try to go back to this every couple of days but it didn't change for me.

Maybe this will be a good read for me in the summer time when I am in the wedding books mood or something. It just didn't work for me quite

Thank you Netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This was a decent friends to lover romance. Addie is a tomboy with a close relationship to several childhood boys. She's especially close to Tucker who is now back in town for one of their friends wedding. Things get more serious between them when Tucker realizes he's sexually attracted to her. This novel would have been great if it weren't for the fact that 50 percent of the time Tucker has to remind Addie about how sex

I so enjoyed this story. The characters are so engaging and real. I love the closeness and the humor the author brings to life through each character during tough situations and oh my gosh such funny situations.
This is a story of friendships, of family, and of small-town life. How the five different characters, Addie a physical therapist, Tucker a lawyer, Easton town sheriff, Ford a firefighter, and last but not least Shep a superintendent of the local school district. As kids, they ran in a pa

Just One of the Groomsmen was a very fun book. I was captured from the first couple of pages and read this in one sitting. This is my first exposure to one of Cindi Madsen's books, but it will most definitely not be the last.

Addison Murphy aka Addie aka Murph has been best friends with her group of guys since grade school. She can't imagine her life without them. When she's asked to be one of the groomsmen for her friend Sheps' wedding she couldn't be more excited. The downside? She has to wear
