“Somewhere better than being with you? I’m not sure that exists.”
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 tol ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
I wanted to like this one. I really, really wanted to like it.
And, parts of it I actually did. Unfortunately, there were also parts of it I didn't love...and parts that got too long, and I ended up skimming the book. I was interested enough in it to want to know the ending and how it got there, but I wasn't invested enough to read all of the extra stuff that felt a lot like filler.
Addison and Tucker have been friends forever, she ...more

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.
Also no matter how many times it has been done and written, in this case friends to lover, she alwa...more
This shall forever now be the standard to which I hold all other friends to lover romances.
GO BUY THIS BOOK NOW!!!
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” ...more
Addison (Addie) has unequivocally always been one of the guys (a set-up in fiction that isn't always enjoyable to read, for ...more
I adored Addie. She had such a great attitude and big heart. She was totally comfortable in her own skin, I loved that about her. Tucker was wonderful. So sweet and totally caught off guard by his attraction to one of his best friends. I loved learning about them and their histories growing up. It was so fun! I loved the build to their growing feelings, the l ...more

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 ...more

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 ...more
She made an offended noise. “You get to hang out with yours truly,…”
I LOVED Tucker and Addie so much! Their back and forth was so genuine, you could see/feel their connection as friends from the start. It was fun to see when they started thinking about their normal responses having a sexual or flirtation undertone. They way Tucker tries so hard to keep hi ...more

4.5 stars — This was exactly the book I needed and didn’t know I was looking for. I was honestly starting to wonder if I was in a bit of a slump, and I was starting not to trust my feelings about books. But this book and THESE characters were just so endearing and easy to connect with, I ended up LOVING Addie and Tucker’s story. So much so, this review is likely ...more

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 ...more
