The Last Wingman: 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 handknit 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 the sixth standalone, lighthearted small town romance in
the Wingmen series. You do not have to read the previous books first to enjoy
this book.

“Delay of Game” – Stephanie Kay

AMAZON LINK HERE:  https://amzn.to/2HwGTv8

Two grownups struggling with choosing to do the best thing for themselves.
Finn’s broken ankle needs several weeks of physical therapy to be in with a fighting chance of starting the Hockey season. He’s struggling to do what the PT is asking of him and not go at 1000 mph.
Sophia wants more for her life than working at her Family owned and run restaurant. After getting her dream job as a Physical Therapist’s Assistant, she’s struggling to say no to helping out at the restaurant in down time.
This is a sweet story with witty banter and great secondary characters. The push/pull of wanting something desperately for yourself and not being sure of how to get it without letting other people down is something we can all resonate with.

“Stay” – Sarina Bowen, Elle Kennedy

Amazon Link Here: https://amzn.to/2GFcPgt

Matt is a divorced, Co-Parenting Hockey player, Hailey is a business owning virtual assistant with a crush on Matt. Cute, funny, quirky, Semi-workplace romance (He’s her client). Needed more puppy time, low angst, cute kids, excellent banter (especially when Blake from book 1 in the series shows up!)

“A Man To Die For” – Suzanne Brockmann

Amazon Link Here: https://amzn.to/2IkshMu

Felipe/Phil’s Story. Should be read after “Not Without Risk”. Felipe is deep undercover until he re-encounters Carrie who, the last time he saw her, Felipe had put her in the truck of her car. As he’s undercover as a mafia right hand man, things quickly go south, putting Felipe & Carrie on the run from both the expected bad guys and it turns out, good guys gone bad in the Police Force.
Felipe has to rely on his wits and his Ex-Con Big Brother Rafe to get him out of this mess alive. This story is a mostly about trust, particularly when you’ve been hurt or betrayed by someone in the past. Given that this is a re-release from 1995, it holds up fairly well except for the technology side of things. Plenty of pay-phones and no internet means it may not read well for younger readers.

“Not Without Risk” – Suzanne Brockmann

Amazon Link Here:  https://amzn.to/2GXyj65

Second Chance romance between Detective James/Diego and Teacher Emily met many years ago when he was assigned to her college to help catch a campus rapist. She was on the student safety committee. An un-wise romance given their age/stage of life differences. He pushed her away after getting shot as he didn’t want her to waste her life on him.
7 or so years later after realizing the Super respectable guy she’s dating might be a drug importer of the serious kind, James gets assigned to play her brother to figure out what’s what. I do like that Suzanne Brockmann isn’t afraid to have her men cry in books, especially when they realized the level of heart break they’ve put our heroine’s through. A re-release from 1995, it stands up pretty well.

“Running Back (New York Leopards #2)” – Allison Parr

Amazon Link Here: http://amzn.to/2HOPea8

Archeologist Heroine, NFL Playing Hero. She’s looking for an Irish Lost City, He inherits the land she believes it lies beneath. As I wanted to be an archeologist when I was a kid I loved this heroine.
I loved all the secondary characters, especially the village of Killkarten. Even though our Hero was an NFL Player there was very little sportsing, leaving plenty of room for a slew of dysfunctional family dynamics that the story and the time frame gave plenty of space to work through. It was like taking a bunch of Americans and dropping them in Ballykissangel and seeing what happened. Themes of loyalty, death, family, abandonment, “the troubles” and reconciliation were well paced and well handled.
