ONE LAST STOP BY Casey McQuiston
Louisa’s 5 Blush Audible Review
I had the chance to listen to this audible via NetGalley and I am so glad I did. I read Red, White, and Royal Blue after hearing such amazing reviews of the book. Not my typical romance. I have read a few m/m romances and absolutely was enlightened to see that guess what? Male/Male romance books are not different from Male/Female romances! Duh!
One Last Stop is a female/female love story and once again, new to me, and once again – I LOVED it!
Not only was the f/f romance different than my norm but there was a bit of a twist that isn’t my typical read. Time travel isn’t something I typically read (or believe in) but I think it was such a great part of the story. Seeing the life that Jane left and seeing the differences in the world 40 years later was eye-opening.
Jane was from the ’70s, trapped on the subway. August was a new New Yorker who stumbled (literally) upon Jane one day and their lives were forever changed.
Each character in this book was fantastic and unique in their own right. Nico, Myla, Nico, Wes, Isaiah/Annie are August’s friends that become a family as the months continue. Each giving their insight into a world of the LQBTQ+ community that I have never know and I am so unbelievably thankful that I was able to meet them, see their lives, see their struggles, see their happiness. I think that’s one of the many reasons I have enjoyed Casey McQuinston’s books – she’s introduced me and taught me through her characters.
One Last Stop
For cynical twenty-three-year-old August, moving to New York City is supposed to prove her right: that things like magic and cinematic love stories don’t exist, and the only smart way to go through life is alone. She can’t imagine how waiting tables at a 24-hour pancake diner and moving in with too many weird roommates could possibly change that. And there’s certainly no chance of her subway commute being anything more than a daily trudge through boredom and electrical failures.
But then, there’s this gorgeous girl on the train.
Jane. Dazzling, charming, mysterious, impossible Jane. Jane with her rough edges and swoopy hair and soft smile, showing up in a leather jacket to save August’s day when she needed it most. August’s subway crush becomes the best part of her day, but pretty soon, she discovers there’s one big problem: Jane doesn’t just look like an old-school punk rocker. She’s literally displaced in time from the 1970s, and August is going to have to use everything she tried to leave in her own past to help her. Maybe it’s time to start believing in some things, after all.
