Addison Murphy is the funny friend, the girl you grab a beer with—the girl voted most likely to start her own sweatshirt line. And now that one of her best guy friends is getting married, she’ll add “groomsman” to that list, too. She’ll get through this wedding if it’s the last thing she does. Just don’t ask her to dive for any bouquet.
When Tucker Crawford returns to his small hometown, he expects to see the same old people, feel comfort in the same old things. He certainly doesn’t expect to see the nice pair of bare legs sticking out from under the hood of a broken-down car. Certainly doesn’t expect to feel his heart beat faster when he realizes they belong to one of his best friends.
If he convinces Addie to give him a chance, they could be electric…or their break-up could split their tight-knit group in two.
Hiding the way he feels from the guys through bachelor parties, cake tastings, and rehearsals is one thing. But just asTucker realizes that Addie truly could be the perfect woman for him—he was just too stupid to realize it—now she’s leaving to follow her own dreams. He’s going to need to do a lot of compromising if he’s going to convince her to take a shot at forever with him—on her terms this time.
As usual, I enjoyed this story by Cindi Madsen. Friends to lovers is a trope right up my alley and this on didn’t disappoint. Mostly. I loved Addie and Tucker but I did feel like there was a lot of filler in this book. There was so much detail and much of it didn’t move the story forward that I found myself skipping pages just to get to the action.
Addie and Tucker were kind of immature but in a fun way, especially when the rest of the crew was together and everyone reverted back to kids. I LOVED their friendship and loyalty and the small side plot with Addie and Lexi forming their own friendship. Just One of the Groomsmen was a fun romance that–mostly–pulled me in and kept me there until the very end. As much as I enjoyed the romance, I might have fallen for the group of friends even harder.
