Imagine standing at the altar ready to pledge your life to another only to find yourself jilted, found unworthy in front of friends, family, and coworkers. To be left standing alone while the person you thought you’d spend your life with simply… walks away. This is Everly’s reality as Her Man of Honor begins the Love, Unveiled series. Henry, her best friend, and her Man of Honor for this disaster of a wedding will step in to comfort and distract as he knows exactly how Everly will be reacting to the events of the day.
What neither of them expected was for the underlying layer of their long friendship to finally show itself in the form of one passionate night with far-reaching consequences. There’s loving your best friend… and being in love with your best friend. Henry and Everly are about to discover that fine line between friend and lover, and it’s going to be a rocky road before their happy ending comes into sight.
I enjoyed Her Man of Honor. While Everly is complicated, and at times frustrating (to me), it was Henry who really captured my heart in this story. He’s been in love with Everly for a long time, but also knows her, knows that she’s not ready to take that leap beyond a safe friendship… but he is, especially now that she’s not marrying a jerk, and they’ve finally crossed that passion line in the sand. This was one of the few times in a romance that I actually got to see the male perspective of a breakup. And Henry was truly heartbroken, especially knowing why Everly was pulling this stunt as her own fears overcame her common sense; seeing his reactions to losing not only the woman he loves but his best friend as well really kicked up the emotions for me. Their happily ever after was hard fought for, but so very satisfying.
