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.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Let me begin this review by saying I’ve only read the first book in this series. I know, I know… but it wasn’t hard at all following who was who, so The Last Wingman is absolutely readable as a standalone. Even more, you’ll just want to read all the couples’ stories after you’re done.
The second thing I’m going to say is that I utterly loved Jonah. He was the epitome of FINE. With tattoos, piercings and general bad boy appearance, his inner geekiness made it the perfect combination. Add to it his heart of gold and you have one of the sweetest, most adorkable book-boyfriend of all times.
Unfortunately, I spent the first half of the book hoping that Jonah would find another girl as I felt June really didn’t deserve his adorkable awesomeness. Prejudiced characters are a pet peeve for me. So, when a character is again and again swayed by his or her preconceived notions without taking once the time to check if their view is actually accurate… well, let’s just say it doesn’t make me a happy camper. June starts off as such one character. Time and again her interactions with Jonah are colored by her completely inaccurate assumptions of what type of person he is.
Eventually, she does realize she’s not being fair and opens herself to actually get to know Jonah. After her attitude adjustment, I began to enjoy her quirky nature and penchant for knitting puns. She could be funny and sweet, and I really enjoyed seeing them connect.
Once we get a bit of backstory as to June’s reasons behind her behavior, I started to root for them to make it. But then the whole “fight” debacle happened, and I felt it was completely OTT and absurd… and I was back to the “she-doesn’t-deserve-him” camp.
I’d say The Last Wingman is a slow burn romance for sure. It’s sweet, has some steam and I really loved Jonah from start to finish, and as the whole book is in his PoV there was lots to love! In the end, I enjoyed Jonah’s and June’s story, mainly because Jonah was absolute perfection and June made him happy.
Rating: 3.5 “I can knit too, Jonah” Stars
