Last Call (Bad Habits #3) by Staci Hart REVIEW

Once Rose Fisher makes a decision, that’s it. End of story.

Like when her ex, Patrick, dumped her out of the blue, then showed up with a super hot, tatted up sex kitten on his arm. Then it was over for good. The end. Poof. Dead to her. Except he was everywhere — down the hall, at the bar with their friends, worming his way into her dreams.

But with their friends paired off, they’re left alone more and more. Rose is determined to keep him friendzoned — doesn’t matter that he stares at her with a smolder that drops all panties in a ten foot radius. She’s over him, and she’ll prove it by getting back into the dating game, Patrick be damned.

Patrick Evans is no stranger to consequences. When your mother walks out, your dad drifts away. When you leave home, you’re on your own. And when you run away from the girl you love, you lose her. He finally has an opportunity to rebuild the bridge he burned, and it’s not one he’ll take for granted. But he’ll have to fight for her, even if it hurts. Even if it means he’ll walk away brokenhearted. Because deep down, he knows that she’s it for him.

The trick will be to get her to admit she feels it too.

Review

★★★ 3 Stars ★★★

Patrick ‘Tricky’ Evans and Rose Fisher were friends before they were lovers, but the intense and unfamiliar feelings that Tricky felt for Rose scared him enough that he ended their short-lived relationship. 7 months after he dumped her and they are finally finding a way to be friends again, but Tricky wants it all, he just needs to find a way to convince Rose to trust him again.

My expectations for this book were very high, Patrick and Rose have had a lot of build up throughout the last two books in this series and I think I was anticipating a more angsty and emotional read than what it turned out to be. The romance element was a bit thin on the ground for my liking, and Last Call read more as women’s fiction with Rose navigating the dating scene and coming to the realisation that there is only one man she wants to spend the rest of her life with, if she could just let go of all her trust issues and let him in.

So ultimately I was slightly disappointed but still happy to report that I really enjoyed this series overall and would recommend it to anyone who loves a well written contemporary romance with an interesting mix of characters and a well-developed plot.

Last Call is part of a series with each book focusing on different characters, but can be read as a standalone. Told in dual POV.

ARC gratefully received from the author in exchange for an honest review
