As the only Beckett cousin who is still unattached, I’m a shoo-in to win the bet with my cousins to be the last man blissfully not in love by Christmas. Of course, I know they’re still going to make me go follow the rules of our bet and go on six dates with the same woman—but I’ve figured out a way out of that too. I’m getting married.
Is it love? Not even close. Chelle Finch needs a temporary husband and I need to win this bet. We agree to put a ring on it knowing that in six months, this marriage of convenience will end in divorce. Except that somehow, dating my wife has me realizing that I don’t ever want to take this ring off if it means losing her.
What does a guy—who can talk his way out of anything—have to do to sweet-talk his temporary wife into forever?
Each book in the Last Man Standing series is STANDALONE:
* Mama's Boy
Only a few pages in, and I was thinking that Nash was not going to be a character I could cheer for. While his mansplaining wasn’t mean, it was a lot! But Chelle put him in his place, which totally endeared her to me. Yes, her last of confidence was puzzling, since she seemed so outspoken, but those childhood insecurities sometimes don’t go away, even with time.
I thought they were a fun couple and enjoyed their banter quite a bit. It was nice to see even more of the “younger” cousins as well, and hope they get their own stories. For me, Grandma Betty’s last gift was a bit anticlimactic, but I’m probably in the minority. Still, I enjoyed this book and the whole series.
I just couldn’t get into it.
Just completely loved this!
The last book of the Beckett cousins, and the last in the Last Man Standing bet, Nash thinks he for sure found a way to help out a lady in distress AND win the bet. He suggests they get married for a short amount of time, which helps them both, no strings or feelings. But really, do we think that’s how it’s going to play out? Lots of feels are caught by both, and in the end, an accidental perfect match was made. Goodness, I loved this series and these cousins!!
