Blurb: The Last Wingman is a standalone enemies to lovers romance.
Jonah Kingston is the last wingman standing.
June Moxee doesn’t care if he’s the last man on earth.
I haven’t exactly avoided relationships, but love has never been a priority. Solitude doesn’t bother me and being alone doesn’t mean being lonely. Until she moved to the island and I had to reconsider everything.
June seems content running her yarn shop, knitting with the local church ladies, and avoiding me. She’s a temptress in a hand-knit sweater. And for some reason, she’s not a fan of mine. It might be the tattoos. Or the beard. Or the fact that we’re polar opposites.
A woman has finally caught my attention. Too bad she thinks she hates me. Good thing I’m stubborn enough to try to change her mind.
The Last Wingman is a standalone, small town rom com in the Wingmen series. You do not have to read the previous books first to enjoy this book.
SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
Last year I had the opportunity to read my first Daisy Prescott novel, Tinfoil Heart (you can read that review here). I am such a huge fan of quirk that I made a note to try to read more of her novels. I lost the note, but not the name.
The Last Wingman is the last in her Wingmen series, and, no, I haven’t read the others, but that didn’t spoil this experience for me.
Told in first person entirely from Jonah’s pov, which was a pleasant change, the story tells of Jonah’s year-long crush on June, who seems to hate him for some reason he’s unaware of but puts down to his bad-boy tattooed looks.
Both Jonah and June are intriguing characters with their fair share of quirks (I love quirkiness! (if you haven’t guessed by now)). Some of June’s quirks, her penchant for fairy doors, for instance, are charming. Jonah is luscious, swoon-worthy, a nice guy in bad boy’s clothes.
*I think I broke trivia night.*
The events in The Last Wingman played out realistically. Characters make mistakes, have foibles, behave rationally, sometimes have irrational but totally relatable fears, communicate. There was a slow burn between the characters (again, I’m a fan) that led to a steamy sealing-of-the-deal. The secondary characters are colorful and add a lot to this small town setting.
I definitely recommend The Last Wingman for readers who like their romances a little more quirky, who enjoy laughing-out-loud, who love watching enemies become more, who like unexpected grand gestures. There wasn’t really anything I didn’t like except for the fact that I hadn’t read the previous 5 novels.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
