Publisher's Summary

Sawyer can spot a bad boyfriend at a hundred paces.... 

Liars, cheaters, and worse, he can’t seem to stay away. If it weren’t for Axel Lewis, he wouldn’t be able to put himself back together after every heartbreak. Ax is kind, protective, and way too good for the mess that is Sawyer Clarke. But when one of his terrible exes starts causing trouble, Sawyer will need the help of his best friend to stay out of danger. And maybe, just maybe, there might be more between them than he’s ever dared to dream. 

He’s been waiting for years....

It’s torture to watch the man he loves go through terrible boyfriends who don’t deserve him, and Ax won’t let that happen again. He’s been Sawyer’s best friend since they were kids, and he’s secretly pined for years. Now, he’s ready to make his move and be the man standing at Sawyer’s side for good.

But with Sawyer’s ex ready to cause trouble, it may already be too late. Danger lurks in their sedate town, and when they’re ready for their chance at love it could be ripped away before it can begin. 

Love hasn’t come easily or stayed long for the men of Knot Pointe, Colorado. But now luck is on their side. They’ll seize their second chances and find the loves of their lives! This audiobook and every other audiobook in the Second Chance Lovers Series can be enjoyed in any order!

Another great addition to this series!

And were off with book 2. Right from page one this book had me hook, line and sinker. Axel has a secret crush on his best friend Sawyer and Sawyer has a secret crush on his best friend Axel. But neither will say anything for fear of ruining their years of being besties! The cast of zany characters and the nasty ex. add so much to the over all story! This is such a great book, the writing, the character development the over all plot just flows so effortlessly. I completely enjoyed listening to this Audible book. You will not go wrong with getting book 1 & 2 in this series. An avid reader/listener in Rock Tavern, NY.

Axel & Sawyer

Sawyer has no self-esteem. It was destroyed as a child, and he continues to place himself in dangerous and damaging relationships. When his friends speak to him about these jerks, Sawyer only feels worse thinking something must be wrong with him to attract such negativity. Axel is his best friend and hates watching other Alphas mistreat Sawyer. Both want more but are afraid the other does not feel more nor do they want to damage their friendship. They have a lot to learn and much more to navigate with any real relationship with Axel's case taking a hard turn.

Loved it!

I love the story especially the main pairing; they are such a cute couple. I also like how supportive their friends are.

I liked listening to this narrator; he did a great job.

I will definitely continue with the rest of the series.

Sweet and fluffy, except for the ruthless criminal

I really, really enjoyed the suspense. The frustration and fear brought by Rodrigues to all the characters is utterly tangible through the whole book.

It took me a bit to get what was going on as I didn't read or listen to the first book, which is completely my fault, and I recommend that you don't make the same mistake :P

The love story between the very sweet detective Sawyer and Axel, who is studying to become a nurse and is filled with self-doubt is delightful, but not really what got me hooked. They are best friends and pinning for each other, both afraid of ruining their friendship if they try for something more. Until Axel's psycho ex-boyfriend attacks him in a parking lot and Sawyer comes to the rescue :P I like how Sawyer is determined to make Axel understand how valuable he is, how worthy of respect and consideration he is. And I enjoyed seeing Axel slowly understand and internalize this. But I never really empathized with Axel. I guess I like my omegas more... self-assured :P

C.S. Harder does a good job with the narration.

sweet and entertaining

In Love With My Bestie is the second book in the Second Chance Lovers series by Austin Bates. Sawyer and Axle are interesting and likeable characters who have a great story to tell. Angst/drama, humor, sweetness and steam... this story holds your attention and keeps you reading. A good addition to the series.

Narration is done by C S Harder. Smooth and easy to listen to. Clear recording and voicework. The characters really shone and the story enjoyable.

Friends to lovers

I was engrossed in this story from start to finish. Sawyer and Axle are both likeable characters and I particularly enjoyed how Axle slowly builds up Sawyer's self esteem. These besties become lovers just a few chapters in and the rest of the story is the development of their relationship and capturing the bad guy. There is no accidental pregnancy either which is a change for the good after reading several books recently where there was! This is also well written apart from the occasional typo.

C.S. Harder narrates clearly and maintains a steady temp throughout. He brings the characters to life making a good book even more enjoyable.
