The Worst Best Man
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.
Alpha Book Club Welcomes Author M.J. O’Shea!
Hi there! This is MJ O’Shea and I’m here talking about my newest book The Worst Best Man. One of my favorite parts of writing romance is to fill the book with friends and supporting characters that help the reader get to know the main characters. I always think the characters’ friends (or sometimes lack of friends) tells a lot about their story and personality.
In this book, Christopher, one of my main characters whose grown up in British high society, has a best friend named Libby who is also from that world. Libby is privileged and rich, but rather than being judgmental and snobby, she’s down to earth and not afraid of pulling Christopher down there with her. She’s a big part of his life and his growth as a character. Below is a little scene between Christopher and Libby to give you a taste! In this scene, Libby and Christopher have just met with August — August who his planning her wedding and happens to be the ex-boyfriend Christopher wishes he’d never been stupid enough to lose.
He hadn’t told Libby about August since the whole thing had happened when they were off at different universities and now it’s time to pay the piper…
About the Author
Hi everyone! I’m Mj O’Shea:) I grew up, and still live, in sunny Washington state and while I love to visit other places, I can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. I spent my childhood writing stories. Sometime in my early teens, the stories turned to romance. Most of those were about me, my friends, and our favorite movie and pop stars. Hopefully, I’ve come a long way since then.
When I’m not writing, I love to play the piano, dance, cook, paint pictures, and of course read! I have two little dogs who sit with me when I write. Sometimes they comes up with ideas for me too…when they’re not busy napping.
