If you're looking for an easy summer read, full of both suspense and romance, you'll enjoy "The Last Straw." Set in Silicon valley, there's an understory of espionage and intrigue that threatens to come between the main characters, who are clearly meant for each other. If (and how) they eventually come together will keep you reading from the first page to the last. While the love story is very sweet, the romantic scenes are steamy! I loved this book.

The Last Straw has everything you'd want in a quick read. Great characters you'll care about, fast moving exciting plot, suspense, believable romance, and HEAT, woohoo! Sprightly, fun dialog between the characters. Think "The Big Sleep" meets Silicon Valley. Can't wait to see more from this new talent!

A few weeks ago I started using my Kindle again after mostly reading non-fiction from the local library. I needed to get back to reading the genre I enjoy the most: romance.
I love my Kindle, but there are times I cannot take it with me in my smaller than Kindle-size purse.
So, I've been looking for short, sweet, sexy romances I can read on my phone while I'm on the go. I came a across The Last Straw by new author Nia Simone, and what a great find! This story packs quite the emotional punch in less than forty-five pages (approx).

Ally Tobin, the heroine, is smart and funny with a good head on her shoulders. She knows what she wants and makes it happen for herself. Heartbroken and disillusioned after her last relationship, she decides to start over in Silicon Valley.
Jared Green, the hero, is the fool who let Ally go once. :-) But he quickly realizes Ally is not one to be toyed with and finds a way to win Ally back.

This is a story about second chances and trust. The emotional appeal of this story had me cheering for Ally and Jared to make it work.
The dialogue is awesome. I loved how these two talk about their past and their emotions. There's emotional tension in every page that had me wondering how Ally and Jared would make it work in the end. As I said, this is short story. Ms. Simone made it work with a sweet ending that left me craving for more from this author. I enjoyed Ms. Simone's style and humor.

THE LAST STRAW is the terrific debut of Nia Simone, definitely an author to watch!

Ally Tobin conducts employee background checks for a Silicon Valley firm. So when a resume turns up on her desk bearing the face of the man who loved and left her in New York City but with a completely different name, Ally can't resist the opportunity to grill her former lover. The mystery of his new name is quickly cleared up, but the simmering heat between them will be harder to dissipate...

Nia Simone writes a fun, compelling story, with witty banter and steamy love scenes. If you are looking for a heartfelt but hot romance, look no further!

Jared may have disappeared leaving Ally feeling bitter, but his return fills her with all sorts of emotions she'd rather quash. I love the characters in this novella. The story kept me reading to the last page. It's a sweet read that sizzles in all the right places.

The Last Straw is a novella about the redemptive power of love and second chances. Ally knew Jared Green, an undercover FBI agent, only by false names. They started dating and slept together while he was on an assignment in New York. Not wanting to be a jerk, Jared decided to be an insensitive clod instead and left without saying a word, rendering poor Ally heartbroken.

Perhaps their love is fated, because they find one another a year later on the opposite coast in California. Ally works in security for the company where Jared is assigned to go undercover. There's intrigue in the form of corporate espionage, secrets being sold to a foreign country, and some great dialogue as the hero and heroine verbally joust their way back together. Much of the internal conflict comes from her doubt and difficulty in trusting him again.

The love scene was sensual and well written. Secondary characters are present but balanced and do not detract from the main story arc. I'd have liked it to have been a little bit longer and for the emotional depth to have been deeper. All in all, this is a great little novella for anyone looking for a sweet contemporary romance.

Okay, Ms. Simone, write more stories. ASAP. Because Jared and Ally are just so fun and they are made for each other. They have a history of hot love and both fake things for a living, Ally as a PI and Jared as a special agent. The one thing they can't fake is their love for each other. Ally tries to resist Jared the second time he wheels into her heart, but it's tough. "Whip me, spank me, make me write bad checks" she moans to her BFF, sure she will not be able to resist Jared a second time. Read this and see what our girl will do.
