Blog Tour: The Best Man by Michelle Lee (Review)

Title: The Best Man 
Author: Michelle Lee

Release Date: January 30th 2014 
Format: E-book & Paperback 
Publisher: Createspace
Those eyes, those lips, that body. Kassidy Marshall has always been that perfect picture of cool, calm and in control.
Always in control; until she meets the best man, Ryan Davis (or as his friends call him, just Davis).
Now she feels anything but in control and she cant stop the dreams she keeps having of him, even though she finds him extremely attractive but also extremely frustrating.
Will she be able to resist him, or will she fall for The Best Man? He can only hope....



Michelle Lee lives in the heart of Nascar Country in Concord, North Carolina with her husband and daughter.  When she’s not busy working, her days are filled with hanging out with her family and friends, reading, drinking Starbucks, shopping (lots and lots of shopping), and religiously watching the Food Network. 

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kassidy is a workaholic, lawyer by profession, and is currently in a strange relationship with BoB when her best friend asks her to be her maid of honor. As part of her bridesmaid duties she has to dance with the best man and practice a lot in order to keep her pride and the man’s toes in one piece.

The story starts right away when she bumps into a hot guy in a club who ends up being Ryan Davis. The relationship between them is stormy at first and the sexual tension starts growing more and more.

The author uses a lot of classical formulas in romance (like the hot guy from the club being Ryan), and has a lot of classical and obvious situations. This isn’t particularly bad because those who love romance are accustomed to these resources. While reading you start to wait for those moments and are part of the excitement of reading a romance.

It's important to mention that the book has some things on its favor, for example the talks between Kassidy and her mind. If it wasn’t for the hilarious internal conversations between Kassidy and her inner self the rating would drop one point at least. The arguments they have are funny, entertaining and is very easy to relate with it. We all have chats in our minds so it was great to see (or better said read) an author who explodes this.

Ryan Davis is described as an Adonis, really sexy and with incredible abilities (not only for dancing). The rest of the characters are good too. The best friends (Macy and Chloe) are good confidents and sidekicks. And I like the character of Jackson, the story needed someone like him to make it real, even though you might end up hating him.

This is a story for mature readers because it has a lot of sex in it. The temperature is always about to break the thermometer and the descriptions are detailed and excellent. (Warning: spoiler ahead) I loved that a lot of it occurred in her mind, she has a vivid and wild imagination. Her dreams are sexy to say the least. Of course that when the action really happens, is amazing and is totally worthy.

The only thing I didn’t like was the explanation of her past and why she is so afraid of let anyone in. It felt so simple to me, I can understand why she is scared but the past was really overrated by her and her friends.

Overall, The Best Man is a great contemporary romance, with high doses of sex and a character with a questionable mental health.


  1. Hi Ruty! This sounds like a hot read. Ryan sounds very sexy :) This is a great review and thanks for mentioning about Kassidy's past. That's the problem with these books, it's like authors want their characters to have a troubled past, but they are running out of ideas. I may hold off and read this one during the summer time :)

    Off to check out some of your other posts! Love ya, girl!
