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 ap

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

Can one night turn into forever?
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. I adored the lead characters and their interfering (but with so much love!) friends. Getting to know them only made the

Mariah Ankenman is becoming one of my favorite authors (& a big thanks for writing in 3rd person.)

Wedding planner Lilli hooks up with Lincoln for a one night stand, both ok with going their own way the morning after. Neither wants a relationship, Lincoln because he's still recovering from a divorce and Lilli because she got burned on love for herself because of her mother's multiple marriages. Surprise! Guess who is the best man of their current wedding? Yep, Lincoln and Lilli has a personal cod

“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 t

Thank you so much to Net Galley and Entangled Publishing for allowing me to review this book. This book is actually book 2 in a companion series, which I regretfully didn't realize. It can be read as a standalone, but I'm sad that I didn't read book 1. That being said I will go back and read book 1 ASAP. This series follows 3 best friends who run a wedding planning business, which is something that I love! I've read a lot of series where friends own wedding companies or match making companies an ...more

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. Whil

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

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 relatable it was. The side characters were as much fun as the main, and I'm psyched to see where the rest of the series goes.

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 definite

This is book two in The Mile High Happiness series, and it's just as fun and steamy as The Best Friend Problem.
If you love:
*Smart, capable heroines
*Hot, adorable heroes
*Witty, fast-paced banter

this is the read for you.

I hate that I didn’t read book one first. (Don’t need to but I like to). That being said, it’s really the only negative I had. The characters were great and memorable. The story flowed nicely and was intriguing. Really a well done read. Would recommend.

I enjoyed this book by Mariah Ankenman. My first by her but not my last. I will definitely read book one in this series as I want to know more about Pru.
Lilly and Lincoln had a pretty hot night together after meeting in a bar. Little did they know they'd see each other again...when Lincoln shows up at Lilly's place of business with his friends.

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. This was such a funny story, even ...more

I love when I can relate to a book! Don’t get me wrong I read to escape and enjoy life through a new characters eyes but I also find a book that is realistic and relatable really lasts and stays with me and I found that in the pages of this beautiful story!

Lincoln and Lilly had both been burned by past relationships and were hesitant about anything more in their future but fate definitely decided to play a fun game with them! Thrust together time and time again these two found themselves formin

Lilly had hooked up with a hot stranger at the bar after her best friend Pru and Finn's wedding. Pru was also one of two of Lilly’s business partners, the other being Moe who's also her roommate, as was Pru before she married. Pru had married her best friend Finn and they had a set of gorgeous twins. Lilly realized after the intimate wedding she was lonely. Lilly wasn’t one for hookups. Prim and proper. She went to the bar after the wedding and ended up having a one night stand with Lincoln. Lin ...more

Yay for a romance with a fun forced proximity trope (they even get snowed in!). While this is the second in a series, I didn’t read the first book and thought it worked perfectly fine as a standalone.

Things are awkward for Lilly when it turns out her one-night-stand is the best man of the next wedding she’s planning – and now Reid’s got four weeks to convince her to give him a try. Not for a relationship, but just another roll in the hay to get her out of his system.

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 t

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 ti

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.

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

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.

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
