Last Call by Staci Hart Release Blitz and Review
Once Rose Fisher makes a decision, that’s it. End of story.
Like when her ex, Patrick, dumped her out of the blue, then showed up with a super hot, tatted up sex kitten on his arm. Then it was over for good. The end. Poof. Dead to her. Except he was everywhere — down the hall, at the bar with their friends, worming his way into her dreams.
But with their friends paired off, they’re left alone more and more. Rose is determined to keep him friendzoned — doesn’t matter that he stares at her with a smolder that drops all panties in a ten foot radius. She’s over him, and she’ll prove it by getting back into the dating game, Patrick be damned.
Patrick Evans is no stranger to consequences. When your mother walks out, your dad drifts away. When you leave home, you’re on your own. And when you run away from the girl you love, you lose her. He finally has an opportunity to rebuild the bridge he burned, and it’s not one he’ll take for granted. But he’ll have to fight for her, even if it hurts. Even if it means he’ll walk away brokenhearted. Because deep down, he knows that she’s it for him.
The trick will be to get her to admit she feels it too.
KERRY’S 3 STAR REVIEW
Patrick is young, has a dark past, fights his demons daily and he is a former drug addict but he has turned his life around. He works as a tattoo artist and art has become his passion.
Patrick and Rose started as friends and then they become more. Patrick ends their relationship with no explanation to Rose. He believes he is incapable of love.
But even with those dark thoughts, Patrick still has strong feelings for Rose. How will he get her back? How to get her to realize he made a mistake?
“If a woman was a drug Rosie would be mine I was so stupid I should have never let her go but how do I make her see we are made for each other.”
I really enjoyed the connection between this group of friends they have such great connections, even with the stress of Patrick and Rose’s break up, Rose’s friends are trying to get her back into the dating game but every date has been a failure… Patrick is having a hard time dealing with Rose dating he needs to make her see they belong together but will he wait to long… Will Rose still want Patrick?
This is a first for me by this Author and her character growth is entrancing, the plot kept you engaged, in the book there are times I felt like it was slower, sometimes I was waiting for the bomb to drop!
Once it picked up there was humor, witty characters that had great connections, it was a joy to read. Last Call is romantic, steamy at times, humorous, it was about second chances to make it right with two broken people trying to find the calm in their storm.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife; even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.
From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
