The Best Man by A.S. Kelly

 THE BEST MAN by A. S. Kelly is NOW LIVE! 

 From Connemara With Love #1  

♡ Cover Design: Elle Maxwell 



I always turn up at just the wrong moment. I never know how to make the most of a situation; I don’t know the right thing to say, or when I should come or go.

Let’s just say I have really shit timing.

I’m not a smart guy. I don’t have great ideas.

I’m practical, a hard worker; someone who lives for his family, and for the air that she breathes.

It’s just a shame that the “she” in question never knew this. It’s a shame that I waited all these years to make my move. It’s useless to tell you, readers, that it was already too late; that I’d screwed everything up, once again. And, this time, my mistakes forced her to come home.

Except she didn’t want to stay.

And now she hates me – or maybe she doesn’t. I still haven’t worked out what’s going on between us, but like I said, I’m not the sharpest tool in the box. And even though this could be my last chance, I’m not going to be the one to ask her to stay.

Not even if she turns out to be the one I’ve always waited for.

Because she doesn’t belong in this place.

And she doesn’t belong in my life.

My name is Alex Brennan, and this is my story: of how I realised I’d lost the most important person in my life, before I even had her.

The Best Man by A.S. Kelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A.S. Kelly is one of the authors that I don’t need to think about if I’m going to read her. I love her writing and all her books so far were a great read.

I absolutely loved Alex. That man was waiting forever for Ellie but faith and world always got in the way. It was heartbreaking to read how much his own happiness he was giving away in order to keep Ellie and everyone else happy. He was willing to stay in the shadows forever if need be but thank God his chance finally came and he took it.

This is the first book by this author that didn’t make me ugly cry for which I’m grateful. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

The Best Man by A.S. Kelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a great story this turned out to be!!! It wasn’t just a romance story, far from it, it was a story of family and friendship and growth and perseverance and love! Alex and Eliie both are characters that you will connect with and root for. Their story was engaging from the very beginning and it will tug at your heart until the very end! The secondary characters all enhanced the story and added lots of laughter to what could be considered a very emotional story depending on what your threshold is. I myself found it more hopeful that angst/emotional. Their backstory along with present day just rang so hopeful and full of love for me that I smiled thru this entire book!
