“Veronica Webber is single again after being in a loveless marriage way past its expiration date. For the first time in a very long time, she feels free and after being burned so badly by love in the past, any thought of romance is the last thing on her mind.
In walks a man from her past, Trevor Allen, a tall, dark, and handsome womanizer who is usually all about the bottom line. For Trevor that bottom line has always been made up of the countless notches on his bedpost. But when he sees Veronica after so many years, he can’t help but be drawn to her and know her again… even if that means being friend-zoned from the start.
As this unlikely pair spends more and more time together, they quickly realize that there might be something between them that goes past “just friends.” But there’s just one tiny detail that makes this situation slightly more complicated… Trevor was Veronica’s ex-husband’s best man at their wedding nine years ago.
So when past mistakes and indiscretions come back to haunt them, will their happily ever after end before it even gets started?
Or will the best man win this time.”

The moment Trevor Allen saw Veronica Webber, he knew she was different. He knew he had to have her. Which is saying a lot because he was a one and done type of man. He had woman begging for a romp in and out of the sheets. There’s one problem though when it comes to Veronica.. she is engaged to his best friend Daniel. That’s okay though, because 9 years later he will get his chance to make up for lost time. Veronica finally divorced her lying cheating ass of a husband and moved to New York City. After 3 months of settling at her new apartment and new job she goes out and celebrates. Imagine her and Trevor’s surprise that they run into each other. Veronica want’s nothing to do with him, but Trevor has his own agenda. Even if just being friends is all he will ever get from Vern, he will take it and not complain. Not matter how much he desperately wants her and how much his large cock aches to be inside her. Trevor promises to never hurt Veronica, except when he makes the promise he keeps forgetting one BIG secret that should of been told from the very start. Now he’s noticing that maybe Veronica might like him more than friends – FINALLY – but he doesn’t know if his big bomb of a secret should be told. Hopefully he will admit his wrongs before someone else does, or else he will lose Veronica all over again like he did 9 years ago.
Veronica was the perfect bombshell that stopped men in their tracks. How she ever married Daniel is beyond anyone, including herself. He was the up most douchebag. Veronica definitely wants nothing to do with his best friend Trevor. Especially since Trevor was the Best Man in their wedding all those years ago. But as days go on, Veronica finds herself wanting to hang out with Trevor again, and liking the fact that they text often. She could use another friend in the city, she doesn’t have many. What she does not need is a boyfriend or a bed side lover. Until lines become crossed and her heart has no idea what it wants. Would it really be that wrong to fall for her ex husbands best man? She probably would of said no, up until she found out Trevor’s secret. Maybe staying friends, or nothing at all is what’s best for them.
I genuinely was pleased with this book. Not only do we get to see a woman with a shattered heart pick herself back up again, but we also get to see a man with an ego the size of New York City itself get taken down a peg or two with Veronica’s beauty. Veronica once was the confident, outgoing woman that other females would love to be, but with her divorce and unloyal ex-husband she became weak and soft spoken. Being friends with Trevor brought back that Independent woman side. As for Trevor he is your typical playboy book boyfriend. Never settling down nor having his bed empty either. The only thought he ever had of being a one woman man was when he saw Veronica 9 years ago, and then the thoughts appeared again when he saw her at the bar alone in present day. He may of tried to be with other women since becoming friends with Veronica, but his dick has other plans for him and it involves his heart too.
This fresh friendship was perfect for each other. Pulling out the best qualities in each other and finally showing what fun a man and woman can do – in and out of the bedroom. I was pleased with this book and will try my hardest to patiently wait for the next book in the series to be released. I’ll let you in on a little secret – I won’t be patient ❤
