A new audiobook from the author of Billy and Me about love and the unbreakable bonds of friendship.
Maddy, dressed in white, stands at the back of the church. At the end of the aisle is Rob - the man she's about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben - best man and the best friend any two people ever had. And that's the problem. Because if it wasn't Rob waiting for her at the altar, there's a strong chance it would be Ben. Loyal and sensitive Ben has always kept his feelings to himself, but if he turned round and told Maddy she was making a mistake, would she listen? And would he be right?
Best friends since childhood, Maddy, Ben and Rob thought their bond was unbreakable. But love changes everything. Maddy has a choice to make but will she choose wisely? Her heart, and the hearts of the two best men she knows, depend on it...

Story wasnt the usual predictable storyline. I didn't expect that ending if I'm honest. Most books would have opted for the latter and revelled in the mystery of it all. Adored this book.
it took me a couple of attempts to actually find a book that I enjoyed being read to me, and even listening to the sample had me hooked. the people reading the story to you had very expressive voices which made you empathise with them made you hate the different characters at different times and even made you fall in love with the idea of the friendship blossoming into a relationship like they had ... its easy to listen to as I listen to it whilst I work ... the characters voices aren't annoying to listen to which makes it rather more enjoyable than other books I have read.
I can tell you what I DIDN'T like about the book......The ending!!
It was an easy to listen to book, but I thought there was going to be a twist in the tale at the end but there wasn't. So I was interested in the book throughout, thinking that something outstanding or shocking was going to happen at the end.....but it didn't, which then made the book totally average. I wish I hadn't have wasted a credit (or my time) listening to this book. The characters were all 'nice', just ordinary. Nothing in the book made me laugh or cry but I did feel for Ben, he seemed to be the most emotional character.
The narrators were excellent. I've listened to a few books read by Kate Rawson and I like her style, she is a good narrator. Ben Elliot was also a good narrator even though I did sometimes think I was listening to Jack Dee!!
The book was just OK, I wouldn't tell anyone not to read it as I can see from other reviews that a lot of people really enjoyed it.
I found Kate and Ben's story telling was fine but the story was dreadful. I found it generic and the unexpectedly, excepted ending was very contrived, I knew who she would end up with in the first chapter. I wasted my money.
Not the genre but definitely the author.
