“While this was cute at times, I found it boring. My favorite part of LAST CALL? Clive at the end.” ~ Under the Covers
I know I’ll probably get some fans thinking I’m completely deluded because everyone seems to love these two. But I think I can now say I’m officially over Alice Clayton. I’ve now read two series by her and both of them I started out loving. WALLBANGER and THE UNIDENTIFIED REDHEAD were great reads and favorites of mine. They were quirky and funny and just adorable. But then the jokes were repetitive, the characters weren’t growing and I started to lose interest. I didn’t enjoy RUSTY NAILED because I lost my interest in Simon and Caroline. Mainly because of Caroline. SCREWDRIVERED was much better in my opinion and I thought the series had a chance. Then MAI TAI’D UP was just ok. And this? Well, I thought it was unnecessary. If I didn’t have to read any more about Simon and Caroline ever again I would’ve been ok with that.
LAST CALL is full of the same jokes, which after four books I don’t find cute or funny anymore. And Caroline was her same old same old Caroline unless she’s shaken up a bit. I keep wondering what Simon finds so irresistible to make the effort. This is their journey to being Mr. and Mrs. Wallbanger. Of course there are some hurdles to overcome. And of course, I wanted to bang Caroline’s head against the wall a few times. Speaking of wallbanging? There’s more of that in this book, which was a nice surprise.
While this was cute at times, I found it boring. My favorite part of LAST CALL? Clive at the end.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
