The Worst Best Man by M.J. O’Shea: Release Day Review

The-Worst-Best-Mansynopsis

It was her special day… but his worst nightmare.

A rekindled romance wasn’t part of the plan.

Despite his American background, August O’Leary is the most sought-after wedding planner in London. Naturally, Libby and Edward come to him for a wedding the city will never forget. But Edward is an international businessman, so the details are left to Libby and her best friend—who happens to be the love of August’s life and the one who broke his heart eight years ago: Christopher Burke.

How’s August supposed to pull off the event of the year with Christopher distracting him and old feelings crashing the party uninvited?

Christopher has let money and status dictate his life, but no more. His failure to stand up to others’ expectations cost him his future with August—one he hoped would include marriage. Now he has to face August’s hurt and anger and prove he’s still the best man to make August happy.

The Worst Best Man is the first book I’ve read from O’Shea and I really enjoyed it.

The story is set in UK with one of the MCs, August, being from Boston. He works for a party planning company in which he has an extended family with the people he works.

Christopher is best friends with one of the brides (Libby) who is a client of August. With August planning the wedding and Christopher being the Best Man I was excited to see how they would find their way back to each other.
O’Shea does a wonderful job in keeping the story flowing throughout the book. It’s nice when the 2 MCs already know each other (even if it has been a while since they’ve seen each other) so there isn’t a need to go slow….We get to jump into the nitty gritty of getting reacquainted (after the groveling of course) and onto the love story.

Both characters were likable but I adored August the most even though, at times, I felt he gave into easily were Christopher was concerned. Their story was sweet, endearing and a pleasurable read. I will definitely be checking out more from O’Shea.

Open Road by M.J. O’Shea: Release Day Review

open roadsynopsis

Angus has been with the same guy for ten years. When his boyfriend breaks up with him the night of his thirtieth birthday party and announces his engagement to a twenty-two-year-old less than ten hours later, Angus is… a mess. To put it lightly. He spends days in bed, drinks himself into a stupor every night, and ends up losing his job and his apartment. His best and oldest friend, Reece, decides it’s time for an intervention. And a change of scenery.

Reece and Angus take off on a buddy trip across the US. They don’t have much of a plan; they just start driving. It takes Angus a couple of days to do much more than grunt when Reece talks to him, but slowly he opens up. They drive, talk, heal, shout, drink a bit too much sometimes, dance, meet new friends… and somewhere between Portland, Oregon, and Portland, Maine, they fall in love.

Which was the last thing in the world Angus expected.

paula review

I’m ready for a road trip now! This was a really fun story to read. Angus and Reece were great characters. I really felt bad for Angus and how he was treated by his ex. I wanted to hit his ex so bad. Angus was so lost and depressed when his ex dumped him. After spending the last 10 yrs. with his ex and then being dumped so callously was horrible. Angus was so lost in his heartbreak and embarrassment that he cuts everyone out of his life. His pain is easy to relate to and draws you more into the story. And then as it usually is with really good friends, they do what they have to, to get you out of your funk. I really liked Reece. His dedication to his friend is awesome. Reece is so patient and understanding. He put a good honest effort into making Angus see that he really is better off without his ex. That he is fun and amazing and not what his ex made him feel. The entire story was an entertaining read from start to finish. I really liked how Reece made his interest in Angus known. I though it was a creative way to do it.
