About The Best Man by Veronica Paige:
This is the moment I have been waiting for my entire life—my wedding day. I have dreamed and planned for this since I was a little girl. The flowers are perfectly arranged, the cake is waiting, and the dress is stunning. I am surrounded by family and friends who love and support me. So, why hasn’t Josh been in contact with me today? Why do my text messages go unanswered? And why, as I take the first steps down the aisle, is everyone in the room smiling except for him?
Everything is blurring as I try to piece together the steps that got me to this point. Why did I think I was ready for this level of commitment? I’m not ready to spend the rest of my life sharing everything with anyone, even if they are as sexy and as desirable as Mia. How do I explain this to her dad? I need to find the nearest exit and get the f*ck out of here.
I met Mia at a mutual friend’s barbecue about a year ago. Unfortunately, it was a few minutes too late. She and Josh exchanged numbers that night, and the rest was history. I have spent every moment since that night admiring her from afar. As Josh’s work partner and designated wingman, he and I spend a lot of off-time running in the same circle of friends. I have gotten to know Mia over dinner, drinks, and board games, always surrounded by other people vying for our attention.
She has no idea I’m crazy about her. She has no idea I love the way she leans into her best friend Hannah when she laughs and how I wish I could be that close to her.
I’ve tried to keep my distance. I’m not the kind of guy to try to steal a friend’s girl. And now, I will never get the chance to tell her how I feel because I have a front row view at their wedding as they are about to exchange vows and say “I do” forever. A front row view, because, it’s just my luck—Josh asked me to be the best man.
This is a hot little quickie about how Mia gets swept off her feet. She will be loved and cherished on her wedding day, but she has no idea how her happily ever after will end!
