Can a burnt-out attorney turn his friends-with-benefits relationship with a fiery redheaded shrink into something more when she finds herself unexpectedly pregnant?
Dr. Margaret James is a successful psychologist in the small town of Oak Grove, PA. After growing up with two absent parents, she sees no need for a family or children. She's happy and independent and likes it that way. She even enjoys the friends-with-benefits relationship she has with Philadelphia lawyer Michael Bennett.
After his dreams for making partner at his big city law firm are shattered, Michael Bennett packs up, buys out a retiring attorney's practice in his hometown, and moves home. He's looking forward to the slower pace of life in Oak Grove and interested in reigniting his relationship with fiery Maggie James.
An unexpected pregnancy throws Maggie for a loop. She doesn't know how to be a mother. Hell, she can barely take care of herself. Enter Michael, who wants to take care of her and the baby. Is she willing to give up some of her independence at a chance for love and the family she's never had? Will Michael be able to overcome her objections?

4 stars I purchased a copy of the full length novel One Last Objection: A Small Town Romance:Oak Grove book 4 by Nancy Stopper and this review was given freely. Another steamy action packed and stress filled saga containing a wedding, Rachel's continued quest regarding her birth family, and the last Bennett brother Michael succumbing to love. Attorney Michael Bennett leaves his high power job in Philly to take over a general practice in his home town of Oak Grove which also places him closer to his family and his secret liaison, Oak Grove and Bennett family's relationship phobic Physiatrist, Maggie James who is now pregnant and scared of motherhood after her privileged but isolated upbringing. The struggle for balance in career and private life leads to a rocky and emotional romance containing all the worries and decisions around an unplanned and fragile pregnancy but culminates in a heartwarming ending.

I absolutely love Nancy Stopper's Oak Grove series! Michael's story is really good and I love the way this one pans out. Michael thought he was on the track to make partner after working his butt off at the law firm. He met Maggie and he has been her "friends with benefits" partner for about 18 months. When he find out that he did not make partner, he decides to move home and take over a practice for a retiring attorney. Maggie lives in his home town and is excited to see him back but when life throws a wrench in her "no marriage and no children" plan, she does not quite know how to handle it. Michael and Maggie's story is one of commitment, love, and family. Awesome!!!

I love when you're invested in a series, and characters that were on the periphery are brought to the forefront. Big city attorney Michael Bennett has only shown up in previous Oak Grove books at Sunday family dinner. And psychiatrist Margaret James has treated all of the Bennett siblings except Michael. We find out in the prologue that they have been having a friends with benefits relationship because neither is looking for love or attachments. A disappointment in Michael's career has him leaving the firm in a Philadelphia and moving back home. The Bennetts are thrilled to have him back in the fray, but how will Margaret feel about him wanting to explore their relationship, especially now that she's pregnant? Ms. Stopper takes the trope of the unexpected pregnancy and elevates it to new heights with the emotional depth of her writing. She crafts a beautiful love story about romantic love, and also familial love and healing the hurts of the past. As always, I've enjoyed spending time in this fictional little town, and I look forward to returning for a visit as the series continues.

Nancy Stopper's Oak Grove series is a treat! This book is about the last Bennett single brother, Michael, an outstanding attorney that gives up his high-profile life in the big city to take over a family style Law Firm in his city Oak Grove. Michael and Maggie, his sister's counselor, are having a no-string relationship for months. She is independent, strong and does not know how to handle a real relationship. Then, they are both faced with a surprise! Maggie is pregnant and they must deal with this new life together. It is a wonderful treat to read a story so full of feelings. Nancy Stopper is a delicate voice of these characters. Indeed, a series to follow and enjoy!

I love visiting Oak Grove, and this was no exception. The story starts out with a friends with benefits until there is an unplanned pregnancy. Maggie thinks she can do it all by herself, she has no plans on marrying Michael. Michael has different ideas he wants it all, marriage and a new baby. Loved how Michael would not give up on Maggie but when she needed her space, he gave it to her. It was fun to see how Maggie changed through out the story. A great addition to the Oak Grove stories, can be read as a stand alone.

II'm in love with the Bennett Family and with Oak Grove. Nancy Stopper has done it again, each book of this series is as least as good as the previous one. This time the love story is between Dr. Maggie James, the Oak Grove's counsellor, and Michael Bennett, the lawyer in the family and the one living in Philly. They start as friends with benefits during eighteen months , Maggie is a strong and independent woman, and Michael is focussed in his job and a serious relationship is not in his agenda,but sudently everything change. Maggie gets pregnat, Michael is moving back to Oak Grove and they have to face their future together as a family and as parents. This will be a very difficult path to follow but love and family is the most important thing in live.

I loved, loved, loved One Last Objection by Nancy Stopper, the fourth book in her Oak Grove series. This is the story of lawyer Michael Bennett and psychologist Dr. Maggie James. Michael moves back to Oak Grove to start his own law practice and tries to convince Maggie that they should get married after finding out she is pregnant. Maggie has a number of trust and family issues to overcome, which is interesting since she counsels people with a variety of concerns, personal and relationship-wise. This situation changes the dynamics of the friends-with-benefits relationship these two have had. It was fun seeing the changes in Maggie throughout the book; going from denial and fear to thinking she could do it all alone to seeing how normal families work out their relationships. Michael was a rock throughout this story, trying to convince Maggie that they were good for each other and together. Michael’s family stood together in support of both Maggie and Michael, if only Maggie would accept it. I really loved reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Ms. Stopper wove a wonderful story, with lots of humor, charm and smexy. She drew me in and did not let go until I turned the last page. I highly recommend this book to other readers and I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

I have said this before, and I gladly repeat this - I love the Bennett family, the bond they have, the support they give to each other, and the way they are ready to razz each other when ever the opportunity arises. The love in the family, and in between their significant others is a tangible force. The story has a natural flow and the events move forward with a smooth tempo, holding the interest to the tale, and possibly keeping the reader up late at night. What I love most about the author's voice and style is how she is not afraid to go deep, to dig in to get those earth shattering emotions and feelings most of us hide and deal with those issues and fears we would rather shelter from others. The story has some amazing, scorching hot chemistry going on, and the prologue gives us a taste of the heat between the protagonists. Yet the story goes so much deeper than the physical attraction and connection. Dr. Margaret James and Michael Bennett will have to face their deepest fears of commitment, relationships, parenting, and love. The road to their happily ever after is a rocky road, the friction seems to escalate as the pregnancy moves on, and their feelings come part of the equation. Maggie's battle with her feelings, accepting the pregnancy, and accepting Michael, got to a point where I got a bit uncomfortable. I understand the waves of hormones she was under, but there was a moment where I really had to take a moment and evaluate my understanding of Maggie and where she was coming from. The story has a very realistic, life-like conflicts and issues, things that most can easily relate to and connect to from their own lives. The characters are very distinguished with their characteristics, people you want to get to know better and spend time with. The Oak Grove series and the Bennett family have found a place in my heart for sure! What a treasure these stories are, each hitting a painful, fragile issues we face in life, and dealing with the wounds with love and care. A wonderful, heartfelt, sexy story about learning to love - as a partner for life, as a parent, as a member of a family, as a sibling, and as a child. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

This time around Ms. Stopper leaves the danger behind and speaks to the emotional side of love. One Last Objection tackles how life's little surprises, can prove the best reward. Michael and Maggie are friends with benefits. When an unplanned pregnancy rocks their world, will it topple their relationship or turn it into something more? Through the anxiety, tears and laughter, an unbreakable bond starts to form and a love they never hoped for, may just be on the horizon. Nancy Stopper is a romantic at heart and One Last Objection reminds readers of that fact.
