If you are reading this review and you haven’t already read the first book in this series then it’s time to back up. Stop reading this and go get a copy of First Touch right now. You need to catch up fast!
Last Kiss picks up immediately after the cliff-hanger ending of the first book. A badly beaten and drug addicted Amber has been saved from the clutches of the Greek mob by Joe the private detective. While Emily is obviously pleased to see her and to realise that (a) Amber is still alive and (b) that Reeve isn’t a killer after all, there are now conflicting emotions. Reeve loved Amber first so how will this change their relationship? Will he choose her over Emily?
As with the first book this is a highly charged erotic thriller written for a mature audience. The action is hard and fast (pun intended) so be prepared to a rollercoaster ride. There was a section in the middle that felt a little flaccid but as the book thunders towards its climax you’ll find yourself having to remember to breathe. It wasn’t the ending that I expected and that makes the story feel even stronger as a result.
