The Next Best Thing by Kristan Higgins

★★★★★ Wow! This book was good. I totally enjoyed it. At first it was a bit hard for me to get into as it is written in first person, but after finishing the book.. I think that was the best way TO write this story. I am left with my mouth agape (figuratively speaking). Lucy and Ethan, I loved them from the beginning. At times I thought for sure Lucy was going to make some really bad choices and I was thinking NO! Why does she have to do this.. but Higgins surprised me and made it work out well! I think with this story Higgins has fully become one of my "Must Buy" authors.

Here's the Blurb:

Lucy Lang isn't looking for fireworks...

She's looking for a nice, decent man. Someone who'll mow the lawn, flip chicken on the barbeque, teach their future children to play soccer. But most important... someone who won't inspire the slightest stirring in her heart...or anywhere else. A young widow, Lucy can't risk that kind of loss again. But sharing her life with a cat named Fat Mikey and the Black Widows at the family bakery isn't enough either. So it's goodbye to Ethan, her hot but entirely inappropriate "friend with privileges" and hello to a man she can marry.

Too bad Ethan Mirabelli isn't going anywhere. As far as he's concerned, what she needs might be right under her nose. But can he convince her that the next best thing can really be forever?
