The bit on the back...
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 at all.
Firstly thank you to St Martins for the review copy of this title via NetGalley. This is the second, and last book in this duo by Laurelin Paige. I absolutely loved the first book - First Touch - and after the corker of a cliffhanger at the end of it I started Last Kiss right away.
The story picks up exactly where First Touch left off, the adrenaline and emotions are running high right from the off. Emily and Reeve find themselves dealing with something completely unexpected and it put their relationship to the biggest test it has yet to face.
This installment is equally unpredictable as the first and the writing throughout is spectacular. The way the story is woven together with all the twists and turns creates a compelling read that will keep you hooked from the beginning.
At times throughout this book Emily got on my nerves. I wanted her to stand up for herself, stand up for what she wanted and her own feelings instead of constantly cowing to someone else. The narrative is again all from Emily's point of view but I would have loved to see exactly what Reeve was thinking in this book after seeing what happened at the end of the first book.
I'm glad the series ended in the 2nd book because I wouldn't have been able to wait to find out what happened if there was going to be a third book in the series. Equally though, I didn't want it to finish either because I wasn't ready to leave Reeve and Emily.
First Touch and Last Kiss were the first two books I read by this author and will definitely not be the last!
