"Have you ever heard of a man-in-waiting?"
Yeah, not many have, Breaker Cane included. But his best friend, Lia Fairweather-Fern, can't get married without some extra help. That's why she's recruited him to take on the snarling beast that's her soon-to-be monster-in-law, Mrs. Beaver. For some reason, the groom's mother seems to have never heard the phrase, "What the bride wants, the bride gets." Lucky for Lia, Breaker has, and he accepts the challenge. After all, how much trouble can one woman cause?
The problem is, it isn't Mrs. Beaver giving Breaker the most grief--it's actually Lia. Because with every second her wedding draws closer, he's starting to see her in a different light. She's always been beautiful, but now, he finds himself staring a touch too long, his hand lingering for one more minute, and when she's upset? Allowing her to sleep in his bed.
Before he knows it, it hits him like a ton of bricks: he's fallen in love with his best friend.
Nothing is snapping him out of it. Not the girl he tries to date during the wedding planning. Not Lia's increasingly suspicious fianc? Not even the looming deadline of her upcoming nuptials.
Which means there's only one thing left to do: prove to Lia he's the one she should be with instead.
And it's going to be a lot harder than he thinks.
