It took a few pages in to really grab my attention, but once it was grabbed, I couldn't let go!
I loved some of the twists that I didn't see coming (sometimes it's hard for a writer to actually surprise me, but Hope Ramsay did just that!)
If you're a fan of Last Chance, like a little mystery, and love a good romance, then this is for you!

Sabina Grey has spent most of her adult life trying to atone for a mistake she made as a teenager. Not a day goes by that she does not feel guilty for that mistake. She has devoted her life to taking care of her sister and doing whatever she can to be sure her sister is happy. So when a matchmaker visits her and tells her she needs to help her sister get married and settled in her life before Sabina can find her soulmate, she is not sure what to do about the situation. She is not sure if her sister’s boyfriend is the right one for her, he might actually be the soulmate of someone else.

Ross Gardiner is used to helping others. He is the fire chief in Last Chance and is used to putting his life on the line for others, he does it every time he is called out for a fire. He is dating Sabina’s sister, Lucy. The problem is that ever since he was a teenager he has had a crush on Sabina. He knows that Sabina is not interested in him, except as a friend. He cares about Lucy and really likes her but he’s not sure how in love he is with her. After there are fires in the town that appear to be deliberate, he has his hands full trying to find the arsonist. When the clues begin pointing to someone close to him, his world is turned upside down.

The characters are well developed and three dimensional. They are all flawed: Lucy is a spoiled brat, Ross needs to grow a backbone and Sabina needs to stop being a martyr. With these character flaws it could have been very aggravating but instead they were combined to make a humorous great read. I really enjoyed the character aspect of this book. With a series of misunderstandings and twists and turns, I was completely drawn in, from the first page until the last.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.

Last Chance Hero was the perfect 4th of July book. It has a slight mystery, a smoking hot firefighter hero, a recued puppy who saves the day, and lots of small town gossip. Though most of the book focuses on Ross, our hero, marrying the wrong woman, somehow Ramsay makes it work. I really enjoyed the characters in this one, as well as the glimpses of past heroes and heroines. This latest in Hope Ramsay’s Last Chance series is definitely worth a read.

Sabina Grey convinced herself that the life she was leading was the one she had to fulfill. She had to keep her shop running, had to ensure her parents were happy, and most of all had to take care of her sister to atone for her adolescent misdeed. But Sabina saw the life she was going to lead once her sister was married to Ross Gardiner the local Fire Chief and all around perfect man. He was patient, kind, attentive, and belonged to her sister which she had to keep reminding herself.

For Sabina staying away from Ross was impossible and not having a sense of loss every time he left with her sister was painful. The shock is seemed was Ross even though he denied it felt the same way but because he was a good guy would not allow himself to falter or give in to his feelings. When a fire burns down a newly developed subdivision and Ross steps in to help resolve the questions surrounding it the gaps in what a relationship is and what it should be become apparent. The woman he is supposed to love is not the woman he is attracted to and the stress of seeing the problems and unable to resolve them, painful beyond words.

Can Sabina and Ross hurt the ones who love them to be together, will they destroy lives to obtain personal happiness, or will the destiny of one prediction make everything okay?

A wonderful addition to the Last Chance series.

How far would you go for your sisters happiness? Enough to give up the man of your (secret) dreams?

How long do you carry guilt? How far would you go to protect a loved one?

These are questions Sabrina has to consider as the Town matchmaker and local gossip committee throw her life into chaos. Throw in a hot fireman (no pun intended), budget cuts, a fire bug, whiney spoiled diva sister, a twisted teen age nerd with a long grudge and you've got a great story line.

Love the town of Last Chance and can't wait for more.

I have to start with two things – #1 this blurb doesn’t really do this book justice at all and #2 I have no idea why I haven’t been reading this series because this book was fantastic! I’ll skip over the second part because I think it kinda speaks for itself, what with my track record of starting series in the middle, so instead I’ll talk about the first.

It sounds like a newly divorced man, who got a little shook by his first marriage, is back in his hometown and fending off all the women except the one that he wants, who wants him too but is a little scared to take the chance. Which could be a sweet story, right? Yeah, that’s not this story. Now don’t get me wrong it is sweet, oh-so-wonderfully sweet, but so not what it is described to be.

Sabina is having a little trouble living her own life because she’s too busy mothering her little sister (out of guilt for a past event) … a sister who is actually dating Ross. It kinda reminds me of Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin, except I don’t know that Sabina pushes the two together because she doesn’t think Ross would truly be interested in her. There’s actually a whole lot more going on, all stemming out of that guilt I mentioned earlier. That and the fact that she seems to be a bit of a people pleaser and has a terrible time being even a little selfish and saying no to others. Ross has actually been interested in Sabina for years and when he first comes back to town he asks her out a few times but after being told she’s busy – and then being introduced to her sister – he takes the hint that she doesn’t like him the same way. And dates the sister instead.
