What a story!! It is so much more than a romance between best friends, one who is totally clueless about his feelings in the beginning. This is about family, the one we’re born with & the one we choose. Travis & Rod are certainly put through the wringer & thankfully still get a HEA.
I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.
I’ve been looking forward to Rod and Travis’ story since the first time they popped up in this series and it was worth the wait. Rod has been trying to work up the courage to tell his best friend Travis that he is in love with him. But when Travis suddenly announces his engagement to the girl next door, Rod pulls away from Travis and tries to get over him.
At first I loved how clueless Travis was. Everyone seems to be aware that Rod is in love with Travis except Travis. Travis is a really intelligent guy but when it comes to people he is clueless and it did start to bug me a little because I was getting impatient waiting to Travis to man up, clue in and go after what he wants.
On the other side of this friendship Rod is a good guy. Firefighter during the summer and now driving a school bus, he is great with kids and a really good guy. I was torn between cheering for him to move on from Travis and find someone new and wanting him to run into Travis’ arms and confess his feelings. But going in I knew that was only one ending this this story, it was just a matter of how we got there.
His Best Man is a really lovely story and I enjoyed all the journey of seeing Rod and Travis work themselves out as a couple but also as men by pursuing a future that they want, making a life for themselves and fixing straining family relationships. I think the ending the story is really sweet and I was left wanting to spend more time with this couple. Hopefully we will see them again.
