Review: Mama’s Boy (Last Man Standing #1) by Avery Flynn

Mama's Boy (Last Man Standing, #1)

Mama’s Boy

(Last Man Standing #1)

by Avery Flynn

Top three lies about mama’s boys:

1. That we don’t know what we want. That one is straight up BS. I know exactly what I want—to win this bet with my cousins by any means necessary even if it means finding the worst possible date in all of Harbor City and agreeing to whatever she asks in exchange for her pretending to fall for me.

2. That we are soft, little wimps. Yeah, you don’t get to be CEO of a multibillion dollar company by letting other people take advantage of you. So as soon as I realize my date Fiona Hartigan isn’t exactly who she appears to be, there’s nothing that will stop me from figuring out the truth—no matter how many dates it takes to unravel that mystery.

3. That we don’t know how to kiss. Oh yes we do. The only problem is that once I start kissing Fiona, I don’t want to stop and I have to because we’ve already agreed that all of this is temporary.

Now I’m the guy that every woman wants to bring home to mom—except for the woman I’m fake dating and falling in love with for real.

Each book in the Last Man Standing series is STANDALONE:

5 Mama’s Boy Stars on Goodreads

Mama’s Boy is the first book in the Last Man Standing series by Avery Flynn. I saw this book and thought “Yes, this looks interesting!” and I wasn’t wrong.

Fiona Hartigan is a third grade teacher who can’t seem to find a decent man. She seems to be drawn to worst of the worst and when she sees Dixon Beckett on a dating app she has to swipe right to get her Nana a meeting with the CEO of Beckett Cosmetics!

Dixon Becket is the CEO of Beckett Cosmetics and he always has to Win. To Win at life at work and espically with his cousins, Nash and Griff. So when his beloved graandmother dies and leaves one last wrapped Christmas gift, the cousins set up a bet and the last man standing single, will win come Christmas day. Dixon is going to be that man because he always wins. Then he meets Fiona…

This was such a fun, enjoyable and romantic read. Both Fiona and Dixon have their demons from the past that hold them back from love. This book in the first in the series so it goes into a lot at the start and was a little slow to begin but once it got going, well I couldn’t put it down. the secondary chacters from Dixons Cousins to Fiona’s family were so entertaining and I can’t wait to read Nash and Griff’s books! I can’t wait for more in this series and highly recommend reading this book.
