The Cocktail Series, #5

This was a novella follow up and conclusion to the Cocktail Series. This story follows Caroline and Simon as their friends marry and have babies and they have to decide if it is time for them to follow that path also.

This was just an alright story for me. It wasn't bad by any means but I didn't find the connection with the characters as I did in book one and I only found a few things in it funny. This was disappointing to me as book one was hilarious. The writing was a little simple and I don't remember the first book being that way.

Overall a nice enough read if you've read the rest of the series and are looking to wrap things up with this couple. Definitely not a stand alone.

Book Blurb for Last Call

From NYT 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.
