A satisfying category romance from Entangled's Lovestruck imprint…
So perfect he's almost too good to be true…
Anna Keebler makes a living being unconventional. A wedding planner who specializes in more…unusual ceremonies, Anna's client list includes everything from nudists to paintballers to Little Red Riding Hood enthusiasts. So when her photographer up and quits during a wedding blitz in Hawaii, Anna makes an unconventional decision. She hires a hot Marine to be her new photographer.
Little does she know, Grant Patton is the best man in one of her weddings. He's so perfect he's practically a Boy Scout—if Boy Scouts were big, ripped Marines with gorgeous gray eyes, and good at, oh, everything. Especially sex. In fact, his only flaw seems to be that he hates marriage as much as she does. But Anna suspects the sexy Boy Scout routine is a cover, and if he wants this thing between them to be about more than sex, Grant must reveal the dark past he's fought so hard to hide…
Best Man For Hire is the third book in the Front and Center series, but each book is a complete standalone. I still haven’t read the first book, Marine for Hire yet, but I have read the second book, Fiancee for Hire. I loved Mac’s story and I was really glad to see him pop up again throughout the book. I am obsessed with the Patton brothers. I really love that each of the brothers are named after US generals. Even the sister! My history nerd side geeked out a bit over that.
And then there is Grant himself. Is he for real?? I mean, seriously, how could he ever possibly be hard on himself? He is so unbelievably good to the core. He is a boyscout personified. It was so easy for me to see that he is a way better person than he gives himself credit for. Both Grant and Anna think that if you have made any mistakes at all in your life, then you are not a good person. It was crazy. But watching them together was so much fun. It was nice to see them kind of open the other’s eyes to how great they were. Because Grant could easily see how awesome Anna was and vice versa. They just needed to convince themselves to believe it.
Anna’s job as a “nontraditional wedding planner” was super cool. She did a paintball wedding a red riding hood wedding and a fairy wedding. I can only imagine the kinds of offbeat things people can come up with, especially with her as a wedding planner helping them out. It seems like such a fun job. Nothing is ever the same as something else you have put together. That makes it exciting for her. I totally get that.
I am such a fan of Tawna Fenske’s writing for the Front and Center Series. She knows how to infuse really sweet and steamy romance with humor and so much personality. All of the books in the Lovestruck imprint from Entangled are great because you know you are going to get an easy to read and quick romance that is satisfying. And the Front and Center series is a great one for you to try. If you liked Mac, get ready to fall even more in love with Grant. He is so awesome. Best Man For Hire comes out at the end of December and it is one that you should keep an eye on. Start with this book, start with the first one, it doesn’t matter. This series will put a smile on your face.
