Publisher's Summary

It’s never too late for love in this short, sweet novella - an audio-first nod to a beloved rom-com!

After getting unceremoniously dumped by his boyfriend, the last thing Cooper Evans wants is to return to his hometown of Big Rock, Montana, to be in his best friend’s wedding. But he agreed to be her bridesmate (her male maid of honor), and a promise is a promise. What he didn’t expect is to run into his high school crush, who’s out of the closet and a smoking hot cop to boot.

Will Baker is just as dreamy as he was when he broke Cooper’s heart all those years ago - and it turns out he’s in the wedding party, too. Will Cooper make it through the ceremony with his heart unscathed, or will he risk it all for a second chance at love?

Smile on my face the whole way through!

I enjoyed Sydney Smyth's When Harry Met Harry so was excited to see another title by the same author. I listened to Bridesmates in one sitting! Adorable, funny, sexy, and just a hell of a lot of fun. Plus...TEDDY HAMILTON.

Romantic story prefetch to listen in one sitting

Such a trite love story. Easy to listen too with moments that made my jaw drop! Surprising and wonderful. I sat and absorbed this story as if it were an episode of a Netflix show. Nice to not have the bright lights of the tv in my face. I hope to find more of these shorter listens!!

Manual transmissions don’t have a park

This book was a nice bit of fluff, but the glaring error of the protagonist repeatedly putting a manual transmission car into park really made me chuckle at the amateurish story. I’ve had more flavor from a rice cake.

Cute short story

I enjoyed this story. The main conflict felt a little forced, but since the story was short it wasn’t dragged out too long. I would have liked to get to know Will a little better especially because there was no indication that he ever interacted with Cooper before their last high school encounter.

Enjoyable short

While not an original story and a bit clichéd, it's well performed, light-hearted and sweet. A nice way to spend an hour and a half.

4 Stars

I enjoyed this a whole lot. It might have been (too) short, but it was sweet and although there really wasn't enough to give it any proper substance, the narration alone bumped it up to 4 stars for me. A home town return, a best friends wedding and finding out you're not as over your first love as you thought. I'm excited to see what else this author has in the bag.

Second chance

This a very short story where someone else's wedding leads to an old rekindle of high school love. The narration was fitting to the story.

in love with Teddy's voice he makes the characters feel so real obviously from the fantastic writing by Sydney. this was wholesome and sweet and everything I needed right now. making you believe that love can last all these years without even being together. highly recommend Sydney and narration by Teddy.

A lovely feel-good mm romance novella!

NY writer Cooper Evans has never gotten over his high school crush on Will Baker. When he returns to his hometown of Big Rock, MT for his best friend’s wedding, Cooper finds himself sharing the ‘bridemates’ duties with Will. While Cooper feels ditzy and wrong-footed in the face of Will’s cool calm, both men have a lot of processing to do. This short second-chances novella was super cute, fun, and sweet with two decent MCs, a town of supportive characters, and a really satisfying HEA. As always, Teddy Hamilton knocks the audio narration out of the park.
