I loved this premise and was eager to settle in with a quick and fun read.

I liked Lilly and Lincoln. They’re both driven people who are loyal to their friends. They definitely had chemistry and a decent amount of conversation, but I never really saw the spark that every character talked about. Both of their inner monologues just talked about how hot and sexy the other one was. The are other characters, but no one stood out.

Plot wise it was meh. There’s loads of push and pull and while I can

More good times with Mariah, the woman can write a great story. I didn't put this one down!
Once again Mariah outdoes herself with this comical story between uptight Lilly and a one night oops and now best man for the wedding she is planning, Lincoln.

Lilly is the detail oriented, twisted a little tight, and public face of Mile High that she partners with her two best friends. Lilly has a firm rule of not mixing business and pleasure. And doesn't she get the surprise of her life when the wedding

4.5 stars!

I absolutely adored this story. The author’s writing style flows very easily and made me connect with and care for both Lilly and Lincoln very deeply. The friendships were also fantastic and the dynamics between the different characters, really entertaining. I specially enjoyed Mo’s antics and definitely plan to read her book (which I assume will be next in the series). In summary, I found this to be a very fun, sweet and heartfelt story and I enjoyed it immensely. I would definitely

This was a typical romance book. I enjoyed it and found myself sucked in and reading because I connected to the story and the characters! Our past always shapes our future so I understood the conflict of the relationship, but so thankful for such great friends! This is a great book for anyone who loves reading about friends and romances!

“The spark is all that matters.”

After a disastrous relationship almost ruined her and her friend’s budding wedding planning business, Lilly has sworn off getting involved with anyone associated to the wedding party. She didn’t count on her completely spontaneous one night stand, Lincoln no-last-name, turning up as the best man to her current wedding!

Yes, they instantly clicked but that night was a one and done deal. And as best man, he’s become instantly off limits. No way is Lilly going to

This one was a bit of a challenge for me. Typically, I don’t like a lot of physical romance in the stories I read. I struggled to find depth with both the characters and plot. At times I did enjoy the writing and the characters, but unfortunately there were times I didn’t connect with the main characters like I wish I could have.

Lilly is the go-to wedding planner in Colorado. If there’s a ex crashing a wedding or an in-law that’s had too much to drink and starts karaoke, she knows exactly how

I had fun with Lilly and Lincoln in The Best Man Problem, the second story in the Mile High Happiness series. While I hadn’t read the first story in this series (something I plan to fix soon) I didn’t find myself lost in the least as what I felt I needed to know from the previous story was addressed in the dialogue between the characters.

On the surface, Lilly and Lincoln had one night of passion and that should have been it – but Lady Karma knows when to hit low at

I enjoyed Lilly and Sally’s love story in The Best Man Problem by Mariah Ankenman, book two in the Mile High Happiness series. Wedding planner Lilly Walsh likes to play it safe and avoid getting too involved. That’s because the last time she hooked up with someone in a wedding party she almost lost her wedding planning business. So no worries when she meets a handsome strange in a hotel bar.

This review was originally posted on my review blog Deanna Reads Books

I read the first book in Mariah Ankenman's Mile High Happiness series, The Best Friend Problem and thought it was a cute romance. The same went for book two, The Best Man Problem. The second book is about Lilly, she is a cautious woman who is a bit closed off. And Lincoln, and man she has a one-night stand with and ends up being the best man to the wedding she is working on!! Lilly doesn't mix business with pleasure anymore
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing an advanced copy of “The Best Man Problem” by Mariah Ankenman. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

I started off the year wanting to read more romance so this fit the bill. This story was short and fluffy following Lilly after engaging in an out-of-character one night stand. Despite feeling chemistry with the guy (Lincoln), she sneaks out on him but is later confronted with him again when it turns out she’s planning his best friend’s wedding.

Mariah Ankenman has done it again. Although the second book in her Mile High Happiness series this can be read as a standalone and I honestly recommend it. Ankenman’s writing style has you emotionally invested in these character’s stories and makes it impossible for you to put down and craving more when its over.

This book follows Lilly, who I found myself connecting with in the first book in the series ‘The Best Friend Problem’ and was so happy that this book focused on her and the possibility

Although not having read The Best Friend Problem, it was very easy to read The Best Man Problem. The story is light and funny and has the right swoonfactor.
Lilly has her own wedding business with her best friends Pru and Mo. Having had a very bad experience with a relationship with one of her wedding customers, makes Lilly very scared to have any involvement with one of her customers. Fortunately this does not apply to handsome strangers in a bar. But when said handsome stranger turns out to be

Not if these two have anything to say about it...
...but then again, the heart wants what it wants.

One of a string of recent Entangled Publishing reads I've completed and yet another to add to the stack of OMG-THIS-WAS-SO-GOOD! Grant it, this one has a bit more spice than the last one, but I can't say anything else even slightly negative about it.

What I Loved: The back and forth banter in The Best Man Problem was adorable! I feel like the book was comical and light in just the right places and it really kept me interested.

How I Felt: I found this story to be a fun, cute romance-read. It started off with such a fun scene and I was immediately drawn into the story and interested in the main character, Lily. At times I didn’t feel quite as invested in Lily and Lincoln, but at other times, I felt their connected and was very interested.

This is book #2, in the Mile High Happiness series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to really understand the series, I recommend reading these in order.

Lilly is not known to have a one night stand. When she does actually indulge, she feels free and like it was the right thing to do. Later, she finds she is going to run in to Lincoln repeatedly.

Lincoln is glad to see Lilly again. He was wondering what made her leave without any clue. When they seem to be

I really struggled to get into this book. I must admit, third person POV is not my favorite. It takes a really good story to get me to connect to the characters. And I just didn’t feel it. Not a connection towards the characters individually or to each other’s.

Lilly runs a successful wedding planning business along with two of her friends.
After her friend’s wedding, she feels lonely and ends up having a one night stand.

Donna (More Than a Review)
The Best Man Problem by Mariah Ankenman is a romantic comedy that I had a little trouble with. The storyline could have worked. Lily has a one night stand with a guy who ends up being the best man in the next wedding she is planning.

What I did like:
I mostly liked Lincoln’s character and he totally won me over with the ending.
Lincoln’s friends were adorable. If they had their own book I would read it.
Lilly’s friendships and her success at her job

What I didn’t like:
Lilly was successful at her job

Lilly and her two best friends own a successful event planning business. Due to her past she lives by a strict set of rules that include never getting with anyone in the wedding party so when the best man shows up with the bride and groom for their next event she is shocked and dismayed to find out he is the man she spent one night with.

Lincoln has been burnt by love in the past and isn’t about to repeat the experience. He enjoyed the night he spent with Lilly and not only did he regret that she

I loved this story. It was funny, sweet and the characters were easy to love and connect with.

Lilly is a wedding planner, she doesn’t do one-night stands, she doesn’t date clients or anyone in the wedding party. She is hard working and great at what she does. Lincoln is new to hear area and the best man to his best friends wedding. A wedding that Lilly just so happens to be planning. A wedding planner he has previously met and knows in an intimate way.

I LOVED Lilly, Moe and Pru’s friendship.

Opposites do attract!

Wedding planner Lilly Walsh swore to never date anybody involved with any wedding she was planning again so when she met Lincoln Reid in a bar and had a one night stand, she thought she was in the clear. Little did she know that she would see Lincoln again as the best man of the next wedding she was planning? Lincoln was moving to Denver for work and he really liked Lilly and wanted to see her more but she refused to give him the time of day after the problems that happened

What a great story of hope and love!! Both Lincoln and Lilly were hurt and betrayed in previous relationships, yet were strongly drawn to each other. They could no longer deny their connection, well, more Lilly than Lincoln. He was very much in pursuit where Lilly fought it. Great scenes to read with a smile on your face. But the best part was where Lilly had her aha moment and some pretty great self realizations. I loved those. And the 180 Lincoln took was a little saddening, but the payoff for ...more

This was a super-cute, low-angst story, quick and easy to read. Wedding planner Lilly has a one-night-stand with a stranger she meets at a hotel bar the night her best friend gets married. So imagine her surprise when Linc turns out to be the best man for the next wedding she’s planning!

Lily and Lincoln didn't expect to see each other again after their one night together. They get a big surprise when he turns out to be the Best Man in the wedding she and her company are planning.

The story was sweet, a little spicy, and had a dash of humor. I really liked the chemistry between Lily and Lincoln and how they came to care for each other for more than just physical attraction. As the story progressed I found myself wanting to keep reading so I could find out how the author

The Best Man Problems by Mariah Ankenman a five-star read that isn’t a problem. This is number two in the Mile High Happiness series and they can be read as stand-alone. Lilly Walsh was a character I wanted to alternately pat on the back for being a superhero and gather into a massive hug and tell her that there were people in the world who cared about her and loved her and showed her that you don’t have to be afraid of love, even when no one has shown you how.

Lincoln thought he will ever see Lilly again after she walked out on him, and he never thought she would be the one planning his best friends wedding. And even though she is adamant that nothing can happen between them, he has 4

I read it in one day!
This is the second book with in the mile high happiness series however it can be read as a standalone book.

Lilly is an amazing wedding planner, however seeing "happily ever after" every day can be quite lonely! Turning to a handsome stranger to distract her for one night. Lilly expects never to see Lincoln again!

The universe has other plans, when Lincoln walks into her office as the best man to the bride and groom who's wedding she is planning.
Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
This was my first read from this author and I quite enjoyed it, It was fun, quick, steamy, and had a few snort inducing funny moments. I especially liked how genuine it felt and how relatableit was. The side characters were as much fun as the main, and I'm psyched to see where the rest of the series goes.
