The first novel in the Manly Series about the DePaul men and the women they love!
Every day, Leo DePaul battles the ugliness of relationships gone bad, yet still believes in romance and happily ever after.
Juliette Samson surrounds herself daily with fairytale romance, but knows from experience not to buy into that painful delusion.

The wedding of Leo’s brother to Juliette’s best friend throws these two unlikely lovers together, and sparks fly between them from the first meeting, when Juliette fits Leo for his tux. Their relationship is a struggle for control in and out of the bedroom, and it's a toss-up as to who ultimately will win.
When Juliette's past sucks them into a maelstrom that threatens both their beliefs and even their lives, can a poetry-quoting divorce lawyer and a wedding consultant who's determined to stay single find common ground for love?

The Best Man is a full-length, standalone, steamy contemporary romance intended for adult readers. It contains no cheating or ménage and a guaranteed happy ending with no cliffhanger. Warning: Reference to an incident in Juliette's past may represent a trigger for some readers.
