Synopsis: One last chance.
That’s all Luke Collins, local bad boy and motocross champion, has to not only find his redemption, but win back the girl he lost. He’ll stop at nothing to make her his, even if it means playing dirty.
Lara Jacobs doesn’t want her heart broken again and refuses to give Luke a second chance. After he left her after their one night stand, she ran right into the arms of her close friend, Grayson Moore. He’s always loved her, and he’s determined to make her see he’s what she needs.
However, in life nothing goes as planned and tragedy strikes. After a fatal accident nearly claims Lara’s life, she’s left inside a world she can’t remember. Her memories are gone, including those of the men vying for her heart. Grayson sees her loss as a possibility to forget her love for Luke, but Luke sees it as an opportunity to start over. All he wants is one last chance to show her that she’s the one he’s been in love with all along.
I'm a big, big fan of this author, and I always anticipate her next release, especially from this series, so I was really looking forward to reading this book! I also read an ARC of the prequel novella to this book months ago and had been eagerly anticipating the characters full-length story, so I may have flailed a lot when I received my ARC of this book lol! The prequel novella is also included at the beginning of this book and it was extended and had some new scenes added, so I did do a quick re-read of it before reading the full-length book! I also started this book as soon as I received my ARC and it only took me a few sittings to read! I was reading it every chance I had and the plot was amazing and developed at the perfect pace! I also loved the sexual tension between the two main characters and that there were plenty of seriously hot scenes! I loved that there was a bit of suspense and action too! I also wasn't expecting the plot to go in the direction it did, but I loved the overall direction that it went in and it made it more interesting and different! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Lara was the main female character, and Lara went through a lot in this book! My heart completely went out to her because she was faced with a very difficult choice! Lara did the best she could in the situation she was placed in though! I also had a lot of respect for Lara because she went through something horrible and was then placed in a love triangle of sorts! She handled everything perfectly though and she definitely did the right thing! I also connected with Lara very well, and never lost that connection with her all the way through this book! Luke was the main male character, and he was seriously hot! I loved Luke! Yes, I will admit that he did do some things wrong when he tried to get Lara to notice him, but he did make up for it and it was easy to see how deep his feelings were for Lara! He really, really loved her and he just wanted to be with her and make her happy! Luke was also very protective of Lara and he showed this several times in this book as it progressed! I just loved Luke and he was like all this author's other male characters and was a perfect book boyfriend lol! I loved that this book was written from both Lara and Luke's point of views! I was hoping it was going to be as the other books in this series are co-written, so I'm really happy that it was! It helped me connect more with both characters and it allowed for more things to happen in the plot! I also can't wait to read the next book in this series! I already have an ARC of it through Netgalley, so I can start reading it straightaway, which makes me really happy! I can't wait to read the characters story! The cover for this book is also stunning! I loved it as soon as I saw it and I love how well it suits the other covers in the series! The models on the front are also the perfect Luke and Lara! Big thank you to L.P. Dover for an ARC of Last Chance and to Enticing Journey Book Promotions for having me on the Blog Tour!
