The Last Girl felt more like someone writing down their vampire rape fantasy. ~ Under the Covers

I have been looking forward to reading The Last Girl it has had lots of good reviews and after reading Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas, which although was disturbing I really enjoyed, I thought I knew what to expect. But I was wrong. I didn’t like this.

This book and Comfort Food are essentially the same story only this has a paranormal twist. Normal girl gets kidnapped, her kidnapper abuses her in all ways possible but the girl submits and starts to like and crave it. However, where in Comfort Food I felt like it was interesting; an exploration of the victims feelings and sensations whilst trying to cope with her experiences and ultimately being broken (or maybe set free?) by them? The Last Girl felt more like someone writing down their vampire rape fantasy.

I guess there is nothing wrong with that, apparently rape fantasies are one of womankind’s most frequent sexual fantasies and obviously you can’t have BDSM with out sadism, think of the poor masochists?! But, I get the feeling that this wasn’t supposed to be a vampire rape fantasy, but more of an exploration of someones psyche as they slowly get broken down and start loving and hating their abuse and abuser.

This book just wasn’t to my taste, hence the low rating, it made me uncomfortable, but not in a way that made me think as other books have, just uncomfortable and although I may try another Kitty Thomas book, I may have to leave it for a while!

My review of Comfort Food is HERE if you want to take a peek!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I totally felt the same way about this book. The author is in a BDSM relationship in real life from what I have seen. That part doesn’t bother me, but it was basically a rape book with a victim that has Stockholm Syndrome. The author writes well, it just wasn’t content I enjoyed. She did warn me before I read it though, lol.

I am glad I am not the only one! I kept seeing reviews saying hot hot Christian was and how they really liked it…I thought I was missing something lol! Yeah, I thought I would be okay as I had read her before and I do like her writing style even in this book, I just couldn’t get along with the storyline, maybe it was just too out there for me!! Lol I could have done with a warning as well 😀
