I couldn't put this listen down and am disappointed that there are no other books by this other offered by Audible. This book passed my litmus test with flying colors. My litmus test is whether I can skip/fast forward through the book & not miss anything & not care. If I fell asleep listening to this book, I had to rewind b/c I didn't want to miss an instance. She combines depth with an appropriate level of sexuality--some might call it eroticism/erotica--especially well. I ended the book with a great smile and really enjoyed the characters and their flaws. Her writing reminds me of Megan Hart, and for me, that's a huge compliment!
Ok, if you want very, very, very explicit, erotic language, then this book is for you. I LOVED IT! But it's not for everybody. And the language occurs within a romantic, hetero couple with an extra guy included once, which is less than Lora Leigh has done in another book of the same type. So, it could be your flava or not, but it was definitely mine. And the story was okay. It held everything together sensibly. But Lora Leigh is purchased more for the erotic relationship, I thin, and secondarily for the great story. If you the story means more, then you might want to pass on this one. If not, get it in a hurry. This one is a a keeper with bookmarked parts.
This is easily the best book I've listened to in a very, very long time. I'm very into erotica and romance. This was not purely romance and definitely not erotica. But it was about love, both romantic and familial and primarily centered around males. I'm a female, but I absolutely, unquestionably loved it. The story was great. But beyond that, it's the language, the terminology used by the author. He has a finesse for stating things in such beautiful ways that every word resonated with me deeply. It's not a feel good book, but still, through my tears, I was both happy and sad. It was moving in both positive and sad ways, which few books manage to accomplish. I could go on, but I think you get the message. I don't think I've ever given any book 5 stars across the board. But I couldn't identify anything negative about my experience with this book. I'm writing this shortly after I finished the book, so my rating may be based on my continual afterglow. Whatever the cause, this book is worth a listen.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
This is my first novel by Kristan Higgins to purchase and I am already a huge fan! I loved every minute of, “The Best Man”. It is LOL funny, and tender, and (best of all) ROMANTIC.
I was so taken with Kristan, that I decided to Google her. Her resume’ is impressive. Did you know that she is a two-time winner of the Romance Writers of America RITA Award? And while she has authored at lease nine books, only 3 are available on Audible.
Audible, please take note…her overall star ratings are 4+. The more readers/listeners are able to discover her at Audible, the more demand there will be for her work. She is good!
Back to the review: After zooming through “The Best Man”, I purchased “Catch of the Day” and “Somebody to Love”. I just completed all, giving 5 Stars across the board for “The Best Man” and “Somebody to Love”, and an overall of 4 stars to “Catch of the Day”.
Kristan Higgins enjoys a talent for developing very realistic, in-depth stories, staring characters that are lovable, clever and truly funny. The leading ladies are all avid pet-lovers, which is even more endearing, while the male leads are dreamy alphas.
I definitely recommend all of Kristan Higgins books. Definitely Credit Worthy! Enjoy!
