Last Call was a really fun read. Eric and Joanne are well written characters.
Eric gets a late night call from a stranger. Being a cop he heads right out. The woman who called was a bit tipsy and has called the wrong man. She thought she had called her brother asking for a ride. Joanne doesn't realize that she's not talking to her brother and hangs up before Eric can tell her. He goes to pick her up because he can't just leave her there waiting for her brother when no one will come. She is pretty trusting going with Eric. Eric tells her that he is a friend of her brother. They have a connection from the very beginning.
There is plenty of attraction for Eric and Joanne from the very beginning. I liked the way the story was written and the humor that was involved. Joanne is pretty drunk the entire first night but that doesn't harm their connection in any way. There are some little twists in the story that keep it going and interesting. The sex is explicit and fairly frequent but not overly so. There is other action going on in this story. I really enjoyed the way it played out. There is a playful feeling that I really enjoyed. There are also a few serious parts but overall there is just this warm, playful feeling that enhanced the reading experience.
When sparks flare, stop, drop and roll with it.
When Eric Layton lunges for his ringing cell phone in the middle of the night, he’s halfway to the door before he realizes it’s not his chief summoning him to an out-of-control fire. It’s an out-of-control woman who’s too tipsy to figure out she’s dialed the wrong number. But the line goes dead before he can explain he’s not her brother.
His conscience won’t let him leave the woman to wait for a ride that’s never going to come. Yet nothing prepares him for the chemistry when he helps Joanne into his truck. She’s curvy, blonde, and vulnerable—a three-alarm warning to do the right thing and keep her at arm’s length.
Still keeping watch over her through the night sounds reasonable. Until she awakens, and desire burns reason to a crisp…
