Casey Markham is a man-eater in a rut. Swearing off relationships may keep her heart safe, but she's beginning to question if her casual flings will ever leave her satisfied. She's wondering if it's finally time to let go of the past and stop letting history control her future.
Bad boy biker, Tenn Jennings can't get Casey off his mind. A chance encounter with the beautiful blond has left its mark, and now he's determined to prove her wrong about everything she thought she knew about men.
It’s safe to say… Casey Markham has met her match.
I’ve loved each book in Sawyer Bennett’s Last Call series, but with each new addition, I couldn’t help but wish it was Casey’s story. I finally got my wish and I couldn’t be happier!
Casey is a different kind of girl. She’s not looking for a relationship. She’s all about going out and having a good time, preferably with a rich man she can more or less walk all over. It’s clear something has happened in her past to make her this way, but she’s not about to let that information be known anytime soon. Shortly after her latest fling ended because the man got too clingy, she meets Tenn and knows right away she’s in trouble.
Tenn is exactly the kind of man she stays away from. He’s a smoking hot biker who works with his hands. He’s the type of guy she fears the most, because he’s exactly who she could see herself falling for. Those rich guys are too shallow to stand a chance. A guy like Tenn could, ahem, pound right through the walls she’s had up for so long. He could be truly dangerous to her heart.
Unable to deny her attraction to Tenn and the chemistry that sizzles between them, she agrees to give him one night with her. And oh what a night it was. It was apparent that a single night wasn’t going to be enough and, despite her protests, Tenn continued to pursue her. What was between them was hot, real and right. I loved how Tenn broke down her walls and, when needed, wasn’t afraid to call her on her bullshit. That’s exactly the type of guy Casey needs. She knows it, too. That’s why she’s so scared. I’ve been a fan of Casey from the beginning of this series, even if I didn’t know her whole story. It was wonderful to see her finally find a worthy man and a happily ever after.
As sad as I am to see the Last Call series come to a close, I’m happy with how it all ended. The couples from the earlier books all made an appearance and it was great to catch up with them. I really liked how the characters, especially Hunter and Brody, help Casey and Tenn find their way together. This is a great group of characters and I’ll definitely miss them!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
