My Thoughts on the Book:
10 Ways to Handle the Best Man is an entertaining enough & really hot contemporary story. Not quite my type of story, but I still liked it.I can't say that I quite liked Connor with his dominant behaviour, but I liked him as a character because of everything he has been through, and how hard he had worked to get where he is now, and all the obstacles he had to overcome. He was one well-developed character.As for Sabrina, she was likable enough, and in the end, they're the perfect match. Sure, they scorched the sheets, but what I really liked was the ending, they were actually quite adorable & sweet, and I would love for them to make it & get their HEA together. Yes, I know, they're fictional characters, but I'd like to think they have a great future together, because they deserve it.Overall, I liked the story, and I'm interested in reading some of Heidi Rice's other works.
