Blog tour: Best Men

Welcome to the blog tour for Best Men by Sidney Karger!

More about the book…

First comes lust.

An hour after meeting a hot stranger at a bar, Max is with him on the rooftop of his Manhattan apartment, making out.

Then comes hate.

Just five minutes later, Max is bolting back down twelve flights of stairs, hoping never to see him again.

Then comes your best friend’s wedding.

So the last person Max wants to turn up at his best friend’s wedding – where he is official Gay of Honour to the bride – is that very same hot stranger. Or for him to be a Best Man too – for the groom. Now the co-Best Men are in a fight to the death over who will be the actual best. But although Max wants to keep his friend close, he discovers he wants to keep his enemy even closer...

My impressions…

I don’t normally read rom-coms so this book was like a breath of fresh air. It made me laugh, it made me swoon, it annoyed me at times… basically, it drew me in and didn’t let go of me until the end. I loved that the book is very character-driven – yes, every character has their flaws… but who hasn’t? I definitely recommend picking this up: it’s the perfect read to brighten up any day!

Three words to describe it. Funny. Entertaining. Original.

Do I like the cover? Yes, it’s cute.

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, this is the author’s debut novel.
