The Worst Best Man by Lucy Score

Rating – All the Stars

You know that feeling on Christmas Eve?  That anticipation you feel as you lay your head down on your pillow thinking of the awesomeness that awaits you in the morning?  That’s me waiting for new Lucy Score books.  I have never made a secret of my love for Lucy Score’s work, but this book was even better than what I hoped for.  This book is everything.  It is rom-com perfection while also being deeply emotional.  It is hilarious, sweet, and sassy all tied up in a bow and topped off with the perfect happy ending.  I seriously went through all the feels while reading this.  

In the beginning, I was laughing so hard I was crying.  I mean, this book is so funny!  And the characters!  There were characters I absolutely loved to hate and characters that found themselves in the most outrageous situations, but I could picture it all as if I was there, and I loved every minute of it.  There were also characters I loved to love.  Not only did  adore both Aiden and Frankie, I loved Aiden’s mom and Frankie’s entire family.  Her mom was a riot, and her brothers were not only perfect, protective older brothers, they were also great friends to both Frankie and Aiden.  I also loved Pru and Chip.  They all had me on the edge of my seat swooning and waiting to see what would happen.  Never before have I read a book that was both this funny and this deeply romantic with the perfect amount of angst and tension.  

Frankie and Aiden were completely perfect.  In the beginning, it seemed as though Frankie was all fire while Aiden was ice, but there were so many layers to both of them!  Frankie is such a strong heroine.  She was driven and determined to a fault.  She was smart and sassy.  And while Aiden was a kijillionaire playboy, there were layers upon layers to peel back on him throughout this story.  He was also vulnerable and kind and caring.  And the chemistry between these two was off the charts!!  They had the most fantastic banter and couldn’t keep their hands off one another.  While they tried to fight the attraction, there was no way to ignore it.  While they seem like an impossible match at first glance, they are really two puzzle pieces that were made for one another.

I love that while this book begins with a destination wedding gone awry, things don’t end there.  We get to follow our characters home and see what things are like in their real lives as well.  This is not your cookie cutter billionaire romance.  Boy doesn’t just meet girl, sweep her off her feet, and live happily ever after.  There were so many twists and turns and layers of emotion in this book that I didn’t want to put it down for even a minute.  And just when I thought I knew what was coming, there would be a little surprise waiting for me.

I am “all in” when it comes to Aiden and Frankie.  Buy this book.  Buy a copy for all your friends while you are at it.  You won’t regret it.  I absolutely adore everything about The Worst Best Man!
