In a post-apocalyptic world, where horrible creatures called fire eaters rule, the last remaining humans fight to survive day to day with no end in sight. Erica is with a group of survivors living in an old collapsed hotel and she knows life will never be like it was before the devastating earthquakes. But then a sexy stranger comes riding in on his motorcycle and saves her from a group of fire eaters and now her life doesn't seem so meaningless. Together they go on a mission to find a safe place to live, where they can be safe and maybe they'll find something else while they're!

I got this book on NetGalley because it sounded interesting and then I forgot about it. Last night I was bored looking for something different to read, something that isn't all sunshine and roses and sex, sex, sex. I found it in this book! I should have read it as soon as I got it from NetGalley because I missed out! I've read other reviews for this book and I really am having a hard time understanding why it's rated so low. I mean the writing isn't perfect and some of the action/fight scenes were a little too much but it was a great idea. I haven't read anything like this and the books that were similar aren't that similar. It was very refreshing to find something so different than my norm.

The characters were great, I love how well Erica and Jake fit! Sorry if this sounds corny but they're a match made in heaven, or in this case it's probably a match made in hell. And I like how the author focused on those two main characters, I wasn't bombarded with detail after detail of secondary characters. He kept it short and simple. This world he created, after the earthquakes and fire eaters destroyed it was very creative.

Since the blurb describes the plot perfectly let me just jump right into what I thought of THE LAST NIGHT.

I've been excited to check out Nico Rosso's work since reading an interview with him last year. There are plenty of men who write love stories but I've honestly never heard of one who writes romance before so the novelty of it put him on my radar. Fortunately, his writing falls into genres I love so I was really looking forward to the release of THE LAST NIGHT. With a slight difference in how the love scenes were worded (especially the use of a certain word that you don't commonly see female romance novelists use) the only big thing that made it obvious it was written by a guy was that the action scenes were very manly. lol Yeah, I know that's not a great way to explain it but think summer blockbuster movie styling and you get the idea. It works really well!

The actual world building and freaky concept of the Ashers is really cool. I love originality in my apocalyptic tales and Rosso knocked this one out of the ballpark. To be honest I wanted this not to be a romance just so there'd be much more about that aspect of the story. If you're bored of zombie apocalypses this is one worth snapping up.

The actual romance left something to be desired. Erica and Jake both felt really cookie-cutter to me. They were likable but not lovable and they fall in love within 24 hours. They even comment on it during the last few pages and yet that didn't excuse how unrealistic it felt. They barely know each other and it was definitely not love at first sight so I just couldn't buy it. Maybe if this had been a full length novel and they'd had much longer to get to that point I could have felt it but I just didn't.

In The Last Night, author Nico Rosso presents a very stark and desolate post apocalyptic world filled with creatures - called Ashers - that are basically a type of zombie with a bit of a twist. They were once humans who lost their flesh, turned to stone and feed on ashes. They set everything ablaze in pursuit of their next meal which includes charred humans.

I was really impressed with the world building in this novella. Rosso gave a plausible theory for the apocalypse and the Ashers. Earth was rocked by a chain of earthquakes resulting in long dormant viruses being released, infecting humans and giving life to the Ashers. Given the time constraints in a novella I was pleasantly surprised at how easily I was pulled into the world and kept on edge wondering how everyone would survive.

The romance took me a little longer to warm up to. Erica has been living with a group of survivors in a crumbling hotel in Phoenix, AZ behind a make shift fence as they live day to day looking for supplies and fending off the Ashers. They really have no weapons that work against the creatures other than just bludgeoning them and hoping the fence stays up long enough to hold them off.

Most of the group longs for the "good old days" but Erica wants more. Even in this hopeless world she sees hope over the horizon. She watches the rain storms in the distance and knows that must mean water, food and possibly other people. She doesn't want to just survive, she wants to live. Just when it seems that Erica will never get that chance during a particular nasty attack, our hero Jake comes riding in on a motorcycle saving the day. He has a weapon that works against the enemy but he rides alone and he trades for his knowledge. He doesn't give it away for free.
