I Liked It!
I have read and loved books by Tia Louise and Ilsa Madden-Mills, so I was excited to hear that they wrote a book together, and even though it took me a while to finally read The Last Guy, I’m kicking myself for waiting so long. This book was romantic, sweet, funny, and hot. I feel in love with Cade and Rebecca and their story.
Rebecca’s dream to become an anchor at the news station she works at is within reach, but after a few mishaps, things are quickly becoming not what she wants, and everywhere she turns Cade Hill, the sexy sports director seems to be. She wouldn’t mind so much, if she wasn’t so attracted, and annoyed by him. After an interesting bathroom incident, and a drunken night, she can’t get rid of Cade, and I loved the journey these two went on.
Cade when we first meet him comes off as arrogant, and full of himself, but as we get to know him, we see he’s nothing like what you think he is like. He has his own story and is really a good guy. I fell hard for Cade and really wanted him to be happy and for him to get the girl. He truly is a good guy, and sure he makes some mistakes in this book, but he really does want what’s best for Rebecca and I adored this about him.
Rebecca on the other hand is kind of crazy. She wants Cade, but she’s scared. The attraction is there, but she’s afraid of truly letting him in, but once she does, it’s beautiful between them. I couldn’t stop laughing at everything mishap she would have though on camera though. Everything that could go wrong for her did, and I was really pulling for her to get that big win so skeevy Marv would have nothing to hold over her to not give her the job she deserved.
These two have a long road ahead of them, but with the help of some great friends, and alcohol, they definitely make things work. This story was sweet and sexy, and definitely had me laughing out loud multiple times throughout the book. As a reader when you read books written by two authors, sometimes you can definitely tell that there are two authors writing the book, in The Last Guy it’s written so well, that it’s seamless and you can’t tell that it’s two authors words coming together. I loved this about the book! The only complaint I have about this book was I feel as if the ending was rushed, there was so much buildup and then BAM the book was over, which left me a little disappointed and wanting more. I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy how the book ended, but it just seemed a bit too rushed for me, and I would have enjoyed more after seeing everything these two had gone through. I really enjoyed all of the characters in this book, and I hope that Ilsa and Tia decide to write more books together, as they did an amazing job!
