The Last Call - Alice Clayton Book Review

From NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton, known for her “deliciously addictive” (The Book Vixen) novels, this Cocktail series novella reunites readers with Caroline and Simon from the wildly successful Wallbanger.

Simon and Caroline are back for another round of baking, banging, and big life changes. Settling in, but never settling down, Caroline has finally struck a balance between the professional and the personal. As one of the top interior designers in San Francisco, she travels all over Northern California between nook time with Simon.

Perpetual globetrotter Simon has cut his frequent flyer miles in half over the last year, preferring to balance his professional and personal life, as well.

The next step in their lives seems preordained—toasts, veils, and the aisle of rose petals. But when an accident on a photo shoot in Southeast Asia brings Caroline the most terrifying phone call she could ever imagine, she has to ask whether “till death do us part” is a more realistic prospect than faces most couples.

It’s been a grand adventure, and Caroline and Simon wouldn’t go out without the best surprise ending ever. One part sexy, one part laughter, a dash of exotic locales, and one pink nightie, mixed with passion, and you’ve got Last Call. Served with a side of Clive. - See more at:
My review
Last Call is a short but delightful novella. The fifth book in this wonderfuly delivered series. 
 It is a sweet read with a great conclusion and hea for all. So for those who enjoy an ending that will leave you sheepishly grinning and content I am sure you will enjoy this one.

Still lots of hot loving, this author captures her characters and gives them life within the pages.

Caroline and Simon have made that step and are settling into there new found life, but it seems that life is buzy around them .. Friends are getting hitched, having babies ... and we see Caroline looking from the sidelines at what she wants and if Simon has the same thoughts.

Last Call is a great short read, its about finding love, enjoying it , and taking the time to live and enjoy what life offers you .. Including the people in it.

We see many of the characters from previous books in this installment - with a mixture of sweet romance , funny dialogue and characters what you will enjoy .. Fur and all.

Both Simon and Caroline are trying to balance there professional and personal life, as well as living more. We tend to go so immersed in life -   this comes across quiet real.

Simon was his usual self , smexy and down right delightful. He is one of those men we add to our list of book boyfriends.

Caroline has a strength I like to see in female leads - and I have to say I enjoyed her till the end. Reading from her POV also strengths the plot, giving us insight into her thoughts and moments.

Overall I really enjoyed this story,  the storyline was engaging,  no drama  within the story , the characters still very much lovey dovey, banging up a storm ( grins )  and the laughter within was amusing and delightful.

Loved this quote below.

“That last round was pretty intense. Thanks for being so bendy, by the way.”

This book is the end of the line for this series, showing each of the couples from along the way .
