Be My Best Man by Con Riley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
*~~*ARC kindly provided by the author to me in exchange for an honest review *~~*
This is my first book by Con Riley but definitely not my last.
Right from the start, the story about Vanya and Jason captured me.
Both guys are so different yet they are fit so gret, they complete each other.
Vanya’s story is build on an angst topic, you are hoping for his stay in the UK, you want the HEA. He is such a kind soul and I love how his witty character is shown. He is honest yet has reason to hesitant in being open, he is suffering from old wounds; he worries, is a bit afraid but never looses hope.
When he meets Jason there is his posibilty, a chance he is taking – even when it means he is telling some white lies to protect himself.
I love the slow burn in the book, the tension is palpable and so true. Jason isn’t caring he is older than Vanya. He is in the same position as his brother, and his dealing with his brother’s fiancé is one major aspect in the book.
I admit I wasn’t a fan of Jason’s brother right from the start but after a while you get why he is so annoyed. Jason is also not flawless, but the edges is what the character makes unique and so charming.
The encounter between the two guys are hot, as I said there is slow burn but when they let loose the sparks are flying. ❤
The book is so full of different things, family is a major aspect and it is coated with the fear of losing so much, so much of value.
This first book by Con Riley was a great start for me to get into the writing and I am so excited to read other books by her. ❤

Will Jason’s third time as a best man lead to first-time love for Vanya?
After fleeing violence in Moscow, student teacher Vanya Petrov winds up lonely in a run-down London hostel. At least visiting the Bond Street store where his roommate works lets him practice his English, but as Vanya’s vocabulary expands, so does his isolation, especially when he sees happy couples planning their perfect weddings.
According to Jason Balfour, weddings are a waste of time and money. After all, he’s been best man for his brother twice already. Saying that a third marriage will end in divorce too leads to an angry ultimatum: to save his relationship with his brother, Jason must meet his fiancée, at last, and make a good first impression.
Jason’s need to dress to impress brings him and Vanya together. Language is no barrier to falling in love with the young and fragile Russian, and neither is their age difference. But Vanya’s bruised soul carries secrets that could rip them apart. As the wedding draws near, Vanya must confess, and soon, or risk losing Jason—his own best man in Britain.

Author bio – Con Riley
Con Riley lives on the wild and rugged Devonshire coast, with her head in the clouds, and her feet in the Atlantic Ocean.
Injury curtailed her enjoyment of outdoor pursuits, so writing fiction now fills her free time. Love, loss, and redemption shape her romance stories, and her characters are flawed in ways that makes them live and breathe.
When not people watching, or wrangling her own boy band of teen sons, she spends time staring at the sea from her kitchen window. If you see her, don’t disturb her—she’s probably thinking up new plots.
