Publisher's Summary

Rex “TW” McMurtry’s perpetual singlehood wouldn’t bother him so much if all his ex-girlfriends didn’t keep marrying the very next person they dated, especially when so many of those grooms are his closest friends. He may be a pro-football defensive end for the Chicago Squalls, but the press only wants to talk about how he’s always a groomsman and never a groom. Rex is sick of being the guy before the husband, and he’s most definitely sick of being the best man at all their weddings.

Bartender Abigail McNerny is the gal-pal, the wing-woman, the she-BFF. She’s dated. Once. And once was more than enough. Privy to all the sad stories of her customers, "contentment over commitment" is her motto, and Abby is convinced no one on earth could ever entice her into a romantic relationship...except that one guy she’s loved since preschool.

The guy who just walked into her bar.

The guy who doesn’t recognize her.

The guy who is drunk and needs a ride home.

The guy who has a proposition she should definitely refuse.

Penny Reid + Joy Nash = magic

I've read many Penny Reid books, I even read this one when it first came out. I've also listened to several books narrated by Joy Nash, but this one is the best. Joy nails Abby perfectly and her male voices are husky and not distracting. This one is her best narration yet! I loved Aunt Sal when I read it the first time but Joy brought her to life and I laughed out loud. 10/10

Good

I did love this book, but I have to say that I was disappointed, especially earlier in the book, that there was really not much interaction between the 2 that built up the love that they professed. Like, they’d only had a couple of conversations, gone to a couple of events (where he didn’t always speak to her), and a few text messages — and he professed love. They didn’t have very many more conversations before the end of the book, but I did get caught up in the sweetness and decided to forgive the lack of basis shown of their relationship by that time.

I love Penny Reid!

I fell in love with Penny Reid’s writing in her Knitting in the City series and the Winston Brothers. Homecoming King was just as good… with a sweet tie back to Knitting in the City. I cannot wait until December when the Drama King is released! And Joy Nash is once again fantastic!

Another wonderful book from Penny Reid

I have been waiting for this to come out in audiobook form and I was not disappointed. Abby and Rex are amazing. I just loved them both so much. Joy Nash (as always) is perfection as the voice artist.

Absolutely loved it!

Joy Nash is one of my favorite narrators. She brings the characters to life.
And once again, Penny brings out all the feels. I need these people in my real life and I’m sad every time a book ends.

Love the narrator, love the story

I love Penny’s books each one is my new favorite. It’s the kind of book that at the end I get a bit bummed out that I’m not hanging out with the characters anymore.

Home run, and I don’t even like baseball.

If you want to learn how to communicate better with your partner, and see what real people are like with integrity and virtue this book has so many pearls of wisdom as well as tons of giggles and lol as usual. Penny always amazyes me and is wise beyond her years to make this world a better place to heighten peoples awairness so we may not be as judgmental, slanderous, or opinionated on people who are “different” from us or our values. I just LOVED this book. Thank you❤️

I smile throughout P Reid’s books

Her stories are always fresh, original, smart and a joy to listen to. They make me burst out laughing.
It’s kinda great to be able to trust an author to give me a ride like that, even if I do catch myself grinning like a fool while grocery shopping.
So thank you Penny Reid!

Hail to the King

Loved it. Joy Nash does a super job bringing Rex and Abby alive. Mind you, they wouldn't have been so vibrant without the skill of Ms Reid - funny, tender and by turns poignant and sexy. Really enjoyed the character development- my only extra wish would be if it was dual POV. Highly recommend 👌

I cannot believe Penny Reid wrote this.

Seriously banal. Where's the story? This could have been any poor romance novel I've listened to in 40 years, just boring. I couldn't finish it, I tried for Penny's sake.

What can I say - I am a huge Penny Reid fan. I love all her books and this didn’t disappoint- can’t wait for the next in the series!

Joy Nash is so talented. Love her narration.
