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 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 this marriage of convenience will end in divorce. Except, 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 the guy who can talk his way out of anything have to do to sweet talk his temporary wife into forever?

I’ve been eagerly awaiting this one for what seems like forever! It’s pub date kept getting pushed back, but I am so glad to have read it now! I loved that we had an older woman romance with this one. And sadly to say, Nash’s mansplaining had me laughing, even though I know how irritating it really is in real life. But honestly, he wasn’t doing it to be an ass, he really thought he was helping everyone. Basically his whole life he’d had to be the one helping everyone in his family, so it just tended to flow over into every other aspect of his life. However I loved the way that Chelle put him in his place. The way she stopped his mansplaining, the way she took charge in other ways that he was unaware he’d actually enjoy when it happened. I hated that she kept just assuming it was only for the bet and that they would go ahead and end their marriage as the original plan said. It was so obvious how much the two of them really did like each other and were better with each other in their lives.
I loved her dog names, especially Groucho Barks since I am a huge Marx Brothers fan. And I loved all the family that we knew from the last two books, as well as getting to know his family. the ending was perfect, the gift from their grandmother that the bet was over was a perfect fit for them as well. My fingers are crossed that based on little bits and pieces at the end of this story, the author is going to give us the stories of the younger cousins in this family.
I like this. I think our culture encourages mansplaining from early childhood! Sounds like a fun book.
It was really fun and like I said, I hated laughing at his mansplaining, but it was so realistic!
That’s good the mansplaining was more humorous than anything!
It was obvious he wasn’t being rude, it was just so much mansplaining though!
