Fun, flirty and filled with chaos, you may need something to support your ribs from all the laughing you’ll be doing while reading this! ~ Under the Covers

I have a confession to make: This is my very first Kristan Higgins book! I’ve been meaning to read her books for so long, but didn’t have the chance to until now. I’m glad I took the leap because I love her authorial voice and hope to fall in love again in Blue Heron!

THE BEST MAN is the first book in a brand new series called Blue Heron. It features Faith Holland who has some serious man issues – and I mean, SERIOUS MAN ISSUES! This girl cannot catch a break! Her fiancé turns out to be gay, the men she dates are absolute scumbags and it’s not her fault at all! Readers are taken on a journey where there are loads of laughs and a ton of fun times. Higgins had me laughing out loud in some cases. I’ve even bookmarked some pages to refer back to just to bring a smile to my face. The wardrobe malfunction has to be my favorite though.

If you’re not reading this for the riot of laughs, then here’s another reason to read it: Levi Cooper , police chief and – get this – best friend to her former fiancé. Oooh yeah.

Levi and Faith have known each other for a very long time, so much so that they come to dislike each other. They find each other annoying and that only makes their time together that much more exciting and fun. Irritation IS foreplay in this case.

While I thought the flashbacks scenes with Jeremy from Levi’s POV did stall the story a little bit, it did give readers some much needed background information on their friendship. I just don’t know if all of it was necessary. The same goes with all the chaos that happens within Faith’s family. Readers are pushed into the Holland family room and are blasted with their crazy (but fun!) personalities. Reading about them was a hoot!

If you’re a fan of Jill Shalvis, I think you’d enjoy this series. Fun, flirty and filled with chaos, you may need something to support your ribs from all the laughing you’ll be doing while reading this!

Disappointed, I almost put the book down a few times for good but I decided to see it to the end because the book received such great reviews. The premise was good and I enjoyed a few moments between the characters. I found myself frequently frustrated throughout the book because there would be a small development in the relationship and then the storyline would quickly divert away into a boring sub-plot. It was so drawn out and then rushed at the end. I feel terrible for writing a negative review, but I just wanted more.....
