"The best and only way to kick off summer, devouring The Last Guy and then doing it all over again because it's just that good." ~#1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken
From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and international bestselling author Tia Louise…
The first rule of office romance is don’t do it—especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.
But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.
Sex in his office… Sex in the on-set kitchen… Sex in the supply closet…
She can’t stop thinking about the former NFL quarterback and how perfect he’d look between her sheets—except he’s an arrogant jerk with a huge… ego.
He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.
Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance—until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.
It’s just a hook-up, she says. When can we do it again? he says.
With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.
THE LAST GUY is the first white-hot CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC COMEDY from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise. It features Fireball-fueled hookups, Doritos Locos Tacos, attack monkeys, toddlers in tiaras, and one fabulous drag queen. Prepare for frantic clicking (or page flipping!) and smoking-hot sexytimes all the way to the out-of-this-world happily-ever-after.
This is a fun, quick, steamy read that had some laugh-out-loud moments. The characters work together and discover that, even though they didn’t see it coming, they definitely have chemistry. This book was low on angst and drama although there were definitely situations where that could have been possible. It made me feel like this is a great beach read.
Rebecca is a reporter who wants to be an anchor at her local news station. Cade is a retired football player who’s now the head of the sports department at the same station. As they get thrown together at the office, they begin to realize that there may be something there. Rebecca encounters several struggles in her quest for promotion and this brings out Cade’s knight-in-shining-armor reaction to her. As their relationship progresses, he realizes, before she does, that they’re good for each other. I liked this twist since, normally, in these types of stories, it’s the woman who knows she wants a relationship first. The chemistry here was definitely hot…these two were perfect for each other. Although I liked both Rebecca and Cade, I felt like I wanted more…I needed to see more depth so that I could love them. On the other hand, I did enjoy the secondary characters quite a bit.
Overall, this story felt a bit like a sitcom to me…co-workers who develop feelings for each other amidst the shenanigans of their co-workers, family, ex’s, and friends. And, I wavered throughout the book about whether that was a good thing or not. In the end, I’d say I liked it but didn’t love it. However, maybe it’s me and not the book. So, give it a shot if you like a funny, co-workers to more romance that brings the steam.
