***WARNING SPOILERS BELOW***
Reeve. Although he is super sexy and dirty-talking and just the kind of alpha that I love to read, I could NOT stand the fact that he loved Amber. I mean COME ON!! He's supposed to be this super intelligent man and he falls for a junkie, gold-digging, lying whore that is manipulative and abusive to animals and is totally unworthy of him. Any sympathy or affection I had for Reeve went out the window when he kept proclaiming his love for this chick. She was terrible! I understand his earlier party days with Missy, but he supposedly matured since her death, so how the heck did he end up with this disastrous woman? They didn't even explain that at all. He felt like a spoiled child who couldn't make up his mind what he wanted to play with and I didn't like that at all.
Emily. I did like Emily at first, but her back and forth submissive crap was over the top. Was she in love with Amber or Reeve? I couldn't tell half the time. Every time Reeve and Emily got close and I thought they were heading in the right direction, she ruined it by being insecure and non-communicative. She let Amber manipulate her for years and was too stupid and blind to see it. I was hoping she'd hook up with Joe eventually, he seemed to really care for her at least.
Amber. HATED HER WITH A PASSION! She was awful and I couldn't understand how either Emily or Reeve had any loyalty to her whatsoever. This woman slept with anything that came her way and the multiple pregnancies and STD's, what was Reeve thinking??? GROSS!
The book was very slow paced, but I was intrigued enough to keep reading just to see what would happen to these trainwrecks. I didn't like the ending, it had no epilogue (which I can't stand) and the characters were ridiculously difficult to connect with. They barely communicated with each other, it was mostly Emily's inner dialogue and that got old pretty quick. So much could have been resolved had she actually TALKED to Reeve and LISTENED to him, but she was too wrapped up in her own head most of the time. I think he actually loved her but his love for Amber overshadowed everything to me, I just couldn't get past it.
Sorry, but this was just not the book for me I guess.
What a whirlwind of a conclusion to the First and Last duet... Please remember to read First Touch (book one) first, because this book picks up from the cliffhanger ending of the previous.
Amber (Reeve's previous girlfriend and Emily's estranged best friend), shows up at the Ranch after being "rescued" by Joe, the private investigator hired by Emily to find her. She's barely conscious and has been beaten bloody and bruised. This turn of events causes Emily to question her place in Reeve's life, remembering how much he loved Amber before she left. Will he want Amber back? Will he dismiss Emily? Will he want to have them both, considering they often shared men when they were younger? These types of thoughts cause so many insecurities to come to life in Emily's mind that she suddenly doesn't even want to be there anymore. Her love and concern for Amber keep her at the Ranch, wanting to ensure that she's well and not too severely injured. Emily sees all the concern and attention that Reeve has for Amber, but worries that his lingering love for her will overshadow all the time that he and Emily have spent together, all the feelings they have developed for each other.
Throughout the story, Reeve and Emily continue this cat and mouse game, while also worrying that his uncle, mob boss Michelis Vilanakis, is sending dangerous messages to indicate that Amber is his and that he will have her back. Reeve tries to make Emily understand that what he and Amber had is over and that his love for her isn't what it once was. She just can't believe it though. She knows that once Amber is healed, her place in his life will be over. Amber will be back to her beautiful, vibrant self, and Reeve will welcome her back with open arms.
Little do Reeve and Emily know, though, Amber is plotting something bigger.
The character development in this duet is so dynamic. The way, as readers, that we see so much history between Amber and Emily and how that feeds into the love triangle created in this story, though that triangle is more in the women's minds than in Reeve's. He knows who and what he wants, and he usually gets it.
We see the submissive nature in Emily, created and nurtured by Amber from the day they met. We see the manipulative tactics that Amber uses to try to convince Reeve to rekindle what they had, as well as to make Emily think that he still wants Amber they way he used to, before she ran off to Michelis. Emily is confused and insecure, feeding into Reeve's dangerous nature that she can't get enough of, and Amber's power over her, trying to push her away.
Last Kiss is a page turner from beginning to end. 5 hot, dangerous stars!!
