His Best Man

by Elle Keaton

Rod Beton and Travis Walker have known each other almost all their lives, since the third grade when Rod was the new kid in town and Travis befriended him with Pokémon trading cards and a fruit snack. Apparently Rod’s easy. Since that day they've had each other's backs, like bread and butter, biscuits and gravy...and so on.

Along the way, Rod fell in love with Travis. He's been hoping for some kind of signal from Travis that he returns Rod's feelings. When Travis announces his surprise engagement—to a woman—over Thanksgiving dinner, Rod decides he's done waiting for the impossible. He packs his belongings and heads for Skagit and a new life. Even if Travis suddenly decided Rod was the man for him, would Rod be able to put aside his insecurities?

Travis always knew he was destined to take over the family business. As the only son, he’s expected to take the helm of the Walker farming operation, and he’s good at it. An engagement to a local girl he’s pals with seems like the perfect solution, gets his mom off his back and ensures the family line. Eventually. When his best friend abruptly leaves town, Travis’s eyes are finally opened to the difference between what is expected of him and what he could expect for himself.

His Best Man is a stand-alone in the Accidental Roots series, a friends-to-lovers mm romance with an HEA. Bisexual/gay.

Excerpt:

What is the constant in your life?” Abigail asked.
“Like a number? A factor?”
“Yeah.”
“Well, aside from family, the farm…” A circuit sprang to life, practically humming in his head. “Rod.”
“Good, good, Rod is a constant. Now, what happens when a constant changes?”
Things fall apart, that’s what.
