This book is different from any of the books by Ashleigh G. and showcases a lighter side, and proves that sometimes different is definitely a good thing. This book still gave me all the feels, and the same level of excellent quality writing I have come to expect from this author. No matter if it's a dark romance, one that makes you think, cringe, cry, or a contemporary romance Ashleigh G. knows how to write a story that draws you in from the first page until the very end.
Last Resort is about Jo,who takes a vacation to learn to live again, and Olly, a carefree surfer, who just may be the person to help her and bring her back to life.
Jo is sad and in her own words "I'm the girl that’s already dead, I’m just waiting for the right time to die." But sometimes life, or fate, or whatever you call it has other plans for us.
Enter Olly the sexy surfer boy next door who seems to be carefree and worry free, but who has a past full of just as much pain.
Is a summer romance just what they both need? Or will one summer not be enough? This book is going to blow you away in such a great way.This is definitely one of my top 10 picks for 2018, and an absolute must read 5 star book. #2018MustRead 💜💜
Olly visited the islands and has never left. He was training for the Olympics when an accident happened. Eight years later he's ready for a change. He's dealt with his demons.
When Jo catches his eye he notices that she is a reflection of his past.
“Jo, you can’t fight the waves. But, you can learn to surf on them so that you always stay above them and they don’t take you under. ...Let me teach you, Jo. Let me make you float so when you leave here the waves can’t knock you down anymore.”
As Jo and Olly grow closer they realize the summer is coming to and end. Olly has a commitment. Jo is afraid of heartbreak.
“I promise to do it gently, Jo. I will keep all the pieces together so you can put it together again. I’m not ready for you to go, please stay with me. With me, not for me, don’t stay for me Jo, stay for you.”
"Love can only be found on the edges of heartbreak, and we are walking a tightrope right on that edge.“
Last Resort will touch your heart and soul as Jo and Olly go on their summer journey of heartbreak, healing, self discovery and love.
The end of the first chapter absolutely ripped my heart out. Jo's pain was so raw. I ached for her.
This book was written in such a way that it was as if I was on the shore alongside them hearing the waves crashing and enjoying the scent of the beach on the wind. It was brilliantly done.
The way that Jo and Olly continued to get closer and closer held me rapt. I adored these characters and couldn't put this book down once I started.
Ashleigh G did an incredible job with this book. Last Resort was absolute perfection and will stay with me long after I set it on my shelf. The words were so perfectly written and the story so achingly beautiful. It is hard to even put into words how this story made me feel.
Their story will take you on an emotional rollercoaster and at times you will be gutted and yelling at your kindle or saying 'thank god they came to their senses'. About time.
This book just proves the A. Giannoccaro is so diverse, she can cover many different genres and reach a vast amount of readers. I have really enjoyed this lighter side to her books and one that makes you come alive with all the 'feels'. Even though I revel in her dark books I'm looking forward to more lighter reads from this author.
Well done A. G. You nailed it.
I was angry, sad, happy, and crying throughout Last Resort.
This is a beautiful story about a girl and her friend who go on a vacation. Jo has a rough past and her friend is trying to help her get over it (in a manner of speaking.)
Things start out innocently enough between the two and while Jo feels for Olly, she's still too tightly gripped onto her past to let go. But Olly is persistent and they start to get closer.
Even with that absolute kumquat of a friend of his (queue my anger) and with how things ended between the two of them, I managed to cry and find my feels before the end.
AND THAT END. OH EM GEE.
So yeah. Read it; it's worth all the turmoil you'll feel.
Both Olly and Jo are amazing characters that draw you in and burrow their way into your heart. A chance meeting brings the unlikely pair together and the connection they share is unforgettable. Their story is beautiful, emotional, moving and utterly captivating. My emotions ran the whole gamut from happy to sad and everything in between while reading Last Resort.
Last Resort grabbed my attention from the first chapter and held me captivated until the very last page. The characters are relatable and perfectly imperfect. The journey I traveled with them was poignant, beautiful and one I didn't want to end. Last Resort is a perfect summer read and one you don't want to miss!

Jo goes on vacation with her best friend to try and salvage some kind of happiness even if it's only for the summer. Jo has lost her way, the girl she once was has gone and she needs to find herself again.
Olly left his past behind him. Now a carefree soul, a surfer who works and lives the Island life. He's working towards his dream. Nothing is going to get in his way. Until his new neighbour unleashes something in him he didn't know he was looking for.
Olly recognizes the pain in the eyes of the girl who's renting the shack next to his for the summer.
It's a look he knows all to well and he wants to put a smile on her face. If only for a while.
These two captivated me, yes I wanted to scream at them both but i really wanted them to go the distance.
They made me gasp, brought a tear to my eye and had me twisted up in knots by the time I'd finished.
I was totally fascinated by life on the Island. I can see the allure of living by the Ocean.
Last Resort is a different style of writing than I'm used to from Ashleigh, but she's smashed it with this book. I was completely consumed with this story. It pulled all kinds of emotions from me that I wasn't expecting.
I love when an Author has the ability to surprise me when they write something different. It shows how versatile they are. I like being kept on my toes.
I'm looking forward to more books with all the feels in the future because this one was fantastic, a perfect summer read for all romance lovers.
A beautiful story about two people learning to float when life is trying to drown them. This is a powerful and emotional tale that hits you right to the core and leaves you breathless. It is simultaneously heartbreaking and yet so damn beautiful
It tears your heart right open, then slowly puts it back together again. Ashleigh made an absolute mess out of me with this one and I loved every minute of it.
Olly and Jo are two unlikely people that connected after a chance meeting and their story is one I will never forget. There were times where I couldnt see my kindle through my tears and times where I wanted to dick-punch a certain character, I'm looking at you Terry!
Im not sure what I thought was going to happen in the end but none of it was predictable, yet I think some things seemed inevitable. I connected alot to Olly and Jo, but both in different ways, particularly the struggle to continue after a loss.
This has been an outstanding, and emotional story and going on this journey with these characters has been amazing.
💙 Olly and Jo 💙
Olly, Jo will find a way into your heart and you will love them such great characters great storyline.
Very well written and just shows how much talent this author has as a writer that she can write anything and it will be great. can't wait to see what she brings us next.
