Book Review – The Last Guy by Isla Madden-Mills

goodreads

the last guyThe first rule of office romance is don’t do it—especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.

But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.

Sex in his office…
Sex in the on-set kitchen…
Sex in the supply closet…

She can’t stop thinking about the former NFL quarterback and how perfect he’d look between her sheets—except he’s an arrogant jerk with a huge… ego.

He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.

Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance—until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.

It’s just a hook-up, she says.
When can we do it again? he says.

With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.

review

Ok, I have a complaint – if you are going to have a going to refer to the character in the book (who is featured on the cover) as having a beard (multiple times), have the guy on the cover have a beard!!!!  Trust me, the guy is hot, but he’s supposed to have a beard!

Ok, I’m off my soap box.

The Last Guy was so refreshing!  I’ve read two mediocre books in a row, so I was so happy to read this one!  The Last Guy is the story of Rebecca Fieldstone, beat reporter at KHOT in Houston.  She works with Cade Hill, former NFL quarterback whose career ended due to injury, and now serves as a sports reporter at the station.  Cade has been attracted to Rebecca since the beginning, but Beck has pre-conceived notions about Cade, which turn out to be incorrect.

This book has some laugh out loud funny moments.  Beck’s roommate Chas (who is transgender [which I love]) and Cash’s brother Trent were great side characters.    Beck’s stories brought out some really funny moments as well.

The book has a twist I didn’t see coming that was interesting.  Overall, this book was highly enjoyable and I would recommend it to anyone.

Happy reading.
