Have you ever heard of a man-in-waiting? Yeah, neither has my best friend's soon-to-be monster-in-law. Ooo, sorry, I meant mother-in-law. Nor has she heard of the term, what the bride wants, the bride gets. With wedding planning underway and a short timeline, my best friend, Lia, has recruited me to help her battle the snarly beast that is Mrs. Beaver. Not scared at all, I accept the challenge as her man-in-waiting--aka, man of honor--and take matters into my own hands. The only problem is, with every second we draw closer to the wedding, I'm starting to see my best girl in a different light. She's always been beautiful to me, but now . . . I find myself staring a touch too long. My hand lingering for one more minute. And when she's upset? Allowing her to sleep in my bed. And before I know what's happening, it hits me like a ton of bricks. I'm in love with my best friend. Not just in love, but infatuated. No one compares to her and nothing seems to distract me from that realization. Not the girl I try to date while I help plan Lia's wedding. Not her angry fiance who thinks I'm growing too close. And not the looming deadline of her nuptials. Which means, there's only one thing left for me to do. Prove to Lia I'm the one she should be with instead. But with the pressure of her engagement, the stress from her soon-to-be mother-in-law, and the breath-stealing nerves running through me, I'm finding it a lot harder to claim the girl than I would like to admit. Say a little prayer for me . . .… (mere)

Lia and Breaker have been friends for ten years since they met as part of a Scrabble club in college, but now that Lia is engaged to Brian, Breaker is starting to realize that his feelings for her are more than friendship. Breaker is determined to be the friend that Lia needs, so when Brian's mother known as "The Beave," starts taking over the wedding arrangements, he steps in to play the role that Lia's deceased parents would have taken if they had lived. The more time Breaker spends with Lia, the more he wants her for himself, so he and his brothers come up with a plan.

A Long Time Coming is a frustrating romance because Breaker and Lia seem to be the only ones who don't see their feelings for one another. There are some parts of the story that are funny, but the characters come across as flat, especially Brian and his mother. There is lots of angst in the first half of the story, but there is never really any question as to how the story will end, leaving most of the events with little impact. The steamy scenes are well written, but are mostly located in the last half of the book interrupting the pacing. Overall, A Long Time Coming is an entertaining read but never attains much emotion.

I enjoyed Lia and Breaker's friendship, but wasn't a fan of the switch that got flipped to turn Breaker (what is with Quinn's characters' names?) into uber possessive alpha. It was too much of an abrupt departure from his cinnamon roll, hot geekiness. The evil mother-in-law was incredibly two-dimensional. ( )

I get how some readers think the burn is too slow & that it would have been nice to see more of them together romantically. I think maybe part of why that feeling is there is because again, we just don’t get enough of Lia’s realization that they are more than friends. But, their dynamic is well developed & the reader can certainly see these two for who/what they really are. It’s an interesting arc and fun to be on the outside looking in. The ex is pathetic and his mother is horrid. I was thrilled when Lia finally stood up to them. Their characters are an interesting part of the story. ( )

Made me laugh out loud quite often from the banter. Loved the characters and the build up. ( )
