How could being so wrong suddenly feel so right?

Falling for her arch nemesis

Isn’t going to happen.

Moving to Starlight was Mara Reed’s first step forward after her devastating divorce. But had she known she’d find Parker Johnson, her ex-husband’s ruthless divorce attorney, there, she might have gone in a different direction. Away from the big city, Mara is seeing Parker in a new light—but is it enough for her to set aside her anger?


I’m always smiling when I return to Starlight! Michelle Major easily wraps a small town around her reader’s heart with engaging characters, intriguing back stories and just enough sass and humor to warm our soul as we turn the pages towards that happily ever after! THE LAST MAN SHE EXPECTED definitely lives up to the hype as recently divorced Mara settles into life as a single mom in Starlight, Washington. I loved every thing about it!

Mara Reed is an easily relatable character. She puts one foot in front of the other every single day to make a good life for her daughter, but when the day is over and Evie is asleep, she remembers the “what if”s and “used to be”s with the best of them.

Parker Johnson is a joy to watch transform into a great guy. He doesn’t recognize Mara, but she quickly lets him have it and refreshes his memory that he recently raked her over the coals as her ex-husband’s divorce attorney. Awkward!

I highly recommend this book as well as the first book in the series to anyone who enjoys small town romance with lots of heart, sass and happily ever afters.
