Without a doubt, Laurelin Paige has delivered an absolutely first class suspenseful story which hooks you in from the very first page and makes you want to keep reading until the very last.
Carrying on from the moment First Touch ended, Emily Wayborn is left feeling confused as to where she fits into Reeve’s life now that Amber is back.
With the three of them living in the same house, and the two women in danger from Reeve’s connections to the Greek Mafia, she is learning a lot about herself and her relationships with both Reeve and Amber.
I loved the growth between Emily and Reeve in this book, and especially Reeve. I warmed to him immensely and although I would have loved him to be more insistent with Emily, I loved the way he allowed her to find her way by herself, and that proved to me how much he loved her.
“I hated him. Hated every terrible wonderful emotion he inspired within me. Hated how completely and perfectly he mastered me.”
We also discover more about the relationship and dynamics of her friendship with Amber, and about the type of person she has become because of this.
For those who are worried if this becomes a love triangle, I can safely say that although Emily appears to think that it has, it most definitely isn’t, and this book is more about the growth of Emily, and how she feels in her own skin, and as part of a couple.
As with the first installment, certain parts did drag slightly, but the story hooks you in enough to keep reading.
Overall, I thought is was an excellent suspenseful and sexy read that fans of romantic suspense would devour with gusto.
Last Kiss is a romantic suspense, and the second part of the First & Last duet. Told in the heroine’s POV.
