Book: Last Kiss
tl;dr recommendation: Last Kiss won’t be the last thing I read from Laurelin Paige. 5 stars.
A GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE FILLED WITH DARK DESIRES AND DANGEROUS SECRETS…
Emily Wayborn has made a decision.
She might not fully trust handsome and deadly Reeve Sallis, but he is the one person that gives her what she needs. With Reeve she can finally be herself. Submitting to him is the only thing keeping her grounded as the rest of her life falls apart. But the hotelier is a master at keeping secrets and as she continues her quest for answers someone is making sure she doesn’t find them.
Time is running out and she is questioning everything she thought she knew about friendship and love. She must now make an impossible choice that will determine if she will survive with her heart…or her life.
Reading Last Kiss was like holding your breath underwater. You wanted to know how long you could last without coming up for air – and let me tell you, I tested my capacity. If you thought First Touch had you holding on to your seat, Last Kiss has you gasping at every corner while the words sunk into your soul.
By far one of the most mind thrilling books I’ve read, this series is a dark erotic thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end. I have to admit though, while Amber drove me absolutely bat shit crazy, so did Emily. GAH EMILY. You will want to shake her harder than you’ve ever wanted to shake a fictional character in your life. She’s sort of like that friend who continues to make bad decisions but who you love and support anyway, because you get her.
Reeve doesn’t leave any doubt to who is the most bad ass, fucking awesome, anti hero in Romancelandia. Although, he turns more into a hero Hero in this book – BUT NO SPOILERS. He’s everything you want him to be. I know I was nervous as hell when I finished First Touch – there are so many questions…so many nuances…so much that can happen with how Laurelin set up this story. And she gives you all the answers. They may not be the answers you want. You may feel the storms of jealousy brew in your stomach and begin to ferment. You may want to obtain a degree in Speed Readers University so that you can just finish the damn thing and get every answer you want.
Regardless of how you feel as to how everything shakes out, Laurelin creates a world of dark desire that I didn’t want to step away from. This book is that word that I hate, but must use here: Unputdownable. Make some time and grab a drink – Last Kiss won’t be the last thing I read from Laurelin Paige. 5 stars.
