Subject: A modern time Fairy tale.
A former Navy SEAL and current bad boy bar owner learns to trust a free spirit in this steamy novel of unexpected romance from the bestselling author of Body Shot and the Heller Brothers series.
Marco Solis knows that if he gets too close to people they disappear. His parents were deported back to Mexico when he was fourteen, his fiancée married someone else while he was in the military, and now his business partner’s spending more time with his girl than with Marco. For better or worse, that’s how Marco meets Carrie Garner. She’s legitimately model-hot. She’s also a nut—a wild, artsy, unapproachable nut. So why is Marco so interested in cracking her shell?
Although Carrie Garner is a natural in front of the camera, her dream is to make it as a photographer. Soon she’ll be heading to Spain for design school, and she’ll miss her best friend, Hayden, like crazy. She’ll even miss Hayden’s boyfriend, Beck—but she won’t miss Beck’s partner, Marco. Bossy, brooding, and annoyingly sexy, Marco really pushes her buttons, though he obviously wouldn’t mind pushing her buttons in an up-against-the-wall, hard-and-fast kind of way. The craziest part is, if Carrie lets him do that, well . . . she may never want to leave.
Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
I love Kelly's books and the Last shot series is by far one of my favourites! These amazing characters take us on a crazy new ride, now featuring Marco and Carrie's story.
They hated each other at first sight, or that was what they thought. They were misguided, both of them had huge self-esteem problems generated by bad things happening in their lives, and they let that cloud their image of themselves and each other.
Together they realize that their lives are not so bad after all and they have a lot to offer.
Carrie, beautiful model, fun and outgoing was actually a sweet and insecure woman on the inside; but Marco freed something in her and now she felt she could do and be anything. The problem was, she just wanted one thing more than anything now, and she was sure it was impossible.
Marco has been a favourite of mine since book 1, with his sexy Spanish and cute pick up lines; but he was so much more. He had a troublesome past that left some scars and life always showed him that people leave and he was okay with it, it was the way things worked, that's why he chose not to get attached. Until now, she changed everything and for the first time he didn't want to be left behind.
It was fun and amazing to watch these two dance around each other totally clueless; it shows us how sometimes out of fear we don't say things and accept situations for what we think they are and by doing that we loose great opportunities.
I always though that when you want something you have to go for it with everything you got, and if even then it's still not working then it wasn't meant to be, but you will have no regrets after wards.
A true fairy tale of modern times, I love every second of this book!
