“This couple sparks and sizzles fast and hard.” ~ Under the Covers

First of all, let me confess my disappointment when I started reading this and it wasn’t a story about one of the two hunky friends we met in book one.  I was anxious to get to them and I deflated a bit when I realized it wasn’t.  But don’t let that fool you.  LAST CALL surprised me and got my immediate attention.

Gavin is being groomed to take over as CEO of a big resort company.  He’s been living a sophisticated lifestyle for a while, but deep down he’s not so buttoned up as he seems.  He did present a nice packaging for me though.  Coming in with his suit and air of power, but then having that comfortable and sexy personality…. Killer!  He’s a take charge kind of man, and also the protector/provider we always love.  He does have to go through a lot of soul searching in this book, and I actually really liked seeing that.

Sunny on the other hand might just be everything that goes against his current lifestyle.  She owns a small bar in a small town, she’s unapologetic about her appearance and is comfortable with her body.  She’s also immediately taken with the hot man she thinks out of her league.  I really loved her tenacity and strong will.  She’s done the best she can and is trying to give her brother the best life she can.  A lot of times putting herself second.  But she’s also a confident woman, even if a bit innocent.

This couple sparks and sizzles fast and hard.  They have tons of chemistry but also a lot to overcome to be together.  I think the author did a great job at intertwining their romance with a little bit of suspense, adding just that light element that kept the story riveting and interesting.  I came to care about our main hero and heroine, the character development was great and we were able to see so many different layers to them.

As the series name calls for, I think this series is the perfect light summer read!  There’s great romances, likeable characters, just enough steam without being extra sexy and interesting plots that keep you captivated.  I’m not sure why I waited so long to pick them up!

About Alannah Lynne

I’m married to a wonderful man who is my biggest fan and loves me beyond belief. We have two sons. The oldest is a talented musician. The youngest is a teenager, still trying to figure out his purpose in life. Aside from driving me crazy.

I have a degree in accounting (ack), but worked in advertising for ten years before becoming a stay-at-home mom and author.

I’m fascinated by weather, especially hurricanes. The knowledge I’ve learned from watching/studying them over the years comes in handy since I live near the North Carolina coast.

I love NASCAR. Every race day you can find me parked in front of the TV, alternately cheering and cussing, depending on how my favorite (or least favorite) driver is doing.

Mexican is my favorite kind of food (closely followed by Italian). One food item I’ll NEVER resist: A Krispy Kreme donut.

I don’t like applying makeup, but agree it’s worth the effort.

I despise pantyhose (but really, who doesn’t).

I mostly wear jeans and t-shirts and have yet to understand why anyone gives me gifts that need to be dry-cleaned.

I’ve been blessed with a wonderful family, unbelievably loving friends, and a job I love.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

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.

Thanks for the review, I’ve only done audio once and I wasn’t impressed.

I think the narrator is key. There are MANY I can’t listen to. Maybe try a few more samples and see if one clicks.
