3 HEARTS out of 5
Genre: Contemporary Romance
“I-I think I already belong to you. That first day, when you ran into me, something… something happened to me.”
After graduating from Texas A&M Stella Jo Chandler is offered a job at Second Chance Ranch; a place known to house celebrities for rehab. She’s not exactly thrilled with the prospect but she accepts the offer. You see, for Stella the ranch offers her more than just a job, it also allows her to be around her first love. Horses.
Van Ransom is the lead singer of a famous band aptly named Hostage for Ransom. Hostage for Ransom..cute right? I love the band name! Ok, well Van is known for his partying bad boy ways and his hard core drug use. Now apparently on his last straw, Van’s manager tells him straight up that if he can’t complete this rehab stint successfully then his band will not be signed to the new label they are aiming for.
Unexpected yet oh so right..
When Van and Stella meet the attraction is equally felt and lust is equally unleashed. Stella is not shy as Van takes exactly what he wants from her. Neither thinks about the consequence and both seem to be driven by the need to have the other…possessed by pure desire.
My Rating and Why
It pains me to give Last Second Chance 3 STARS. Did I enjoy it? Yes. I just didn’t love it. For me personally the book felt similar to another book I recently read..not the characters but it’s tone and theme. It could be that I read the books to close in a small timeframe instead of spaced apart. Never the less, sadly the book just wasn’t for me. I do however look forward to more from this author as I have enjoyed books by her prior to this one.
Characters- Sexy and witty
Writing Style- Fair
Plot/Storyline- Girl can’t have her dream, she hopes to help others get theirs. She goes to work at a rehab facility. She meets rocker Van Ransom and things heat up quickly between the two.
Steam Factor- Med/Moderately Steamy
Entertainment Level- From Lo-Med-Hi I was mildly entertained but never missed the story or its characters if I had to put the book down.
Overall- I liked it! Check it out!
Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it!
