Summary

Rex “TW” McMurtry’s perpetual singlehood wouldn’t bother him so much if all his ex-girlfriends didn’t keep marrying the very next person they dated, especially when so many of those grooms are his closest friends. He may be a pro-football defensive end for the Chicago Squalls, but the press only wants to talk about how he’s always a groomsman and never a groom. Rex is sick of being the guy before the husband, and he’s most definitely sick of being the best man at all their weddings.

Bartender Abigail McNerny is the gal-pal, the wing-woman, the she-BFF. She’s dated. Once. And once was more than enough. Privy to all the sad stories of her customers, "contentment over commitment" is her motto, and Abby is convinced no one on earth could ever entice her into a romantic relationship...except that one guy she’s loved since preschool.

The guy who just walked into her bar.

The guy who doesn’t recognize her.

The guy who is drunk and needs a ride home.

The guy who has a proposition she should definitely refuse.

Hail to the King

Loved it. Joy Nash does a super job bringing Rex and Abby alive. Mind you, they wouldn't have been so vibrant without the skill of Ms Reid - funny, tender and by turns poignant and sexy. Really enjoyed the character development- my only extra wish would be if it was dual POV. Highly recommend 👌

Penny Reid + Joy Nash = magic

I've read many Penny Reid books, I even read this one when it first came out. I've also listened to several books narrated by Joy Nash, but this one is the best. Joy nails Abby perfectly and her male voices are husky and not distracting. This one is her best narration yet! I loved Aunt Sal when I read it the first time but Joy brought her to life and I laughed out loud. 10/10

I love Penny Reid!

I fell in love with Penny Reid’s writing in her Knitting in the City series and the Winston Brothers. Homecoming King was just as good… with a sweet tie back to Knitting in the City. I cannot wait until December when the Drama King is released! And Joy Nash is once again fantastic!

Another wonderful book from Penny Reid

I have been waiting for this to come out in audiobook form and I was not disappointed. Abby and Rex are amazing. I just loved them both so much. Joy Nash (as always) is perfection as the voice artist.

I smile throughout P Reid’s books

Her stories are always fresh, original, smart and a joy to listen to. They make me burst out laughing.
It’s kinda great to be able to trust an author to give me a ride like that, even if I do catch myself grinning like a fool while grocery shopping.
So thank you Penny Reid!

Just started the book -will ammendment when done.

At this point in her book universe, does Penny Reid do part of her writing of the female lead with Joy Nash in mind? Because, hot damn, this pair is ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!

This book makes my heart squeeze in the best way!!!!

Too Good to be True!

Penny Reid NEVER disappoints, and The Homecoming King exceeded my expectations! Wonderful story with well-developed characters, with sweet and sexy moments, and a true HEA! Thrilled it was set in Texas! Joy Nash’s narration truly brought the story to life!

Great book and narration

I love Penny Reid and I especially love Joy Nash’s narrations of her books. I was excited to see that she did Homecoming King. I’d already read the book but I enjoyed hearing it again.

This book had me from the first page

First book I've read by Penny Reid, but definitely not my last. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a feel good but with real life mixed into the HEA book that grabs you from the first word and has a satisfying ending when it is done.
