LAST KISS by Laurelin Paige


Email this review


The sequel to First Touch (2015) reunites an actress with her missing friend, but true love—and the Greek Mafia—may tear them apart.

Emily Wayborn only seduced Reeve Sallis to get access to his ex-girlfriend Amber, who was found bloodied and bruised at the hands of the mob boss she left him for. But when Reeve brings Amber to his ranch in Wyoming to recuperate, Emily can’t help but feel jealous. Amber wants Reeve back, and Emily is not ready to let the bad-boy billionaire go. Private investigator Joe Cook does his best to lure Emily away from Reeve with his decency, but she's having none of it. Emily likes to be dominated, and her sadomasochistic relationships with both Reeve and Amber blur the line between kinky and abusive. She welcomes Reeve’s possessive behavior in the bedroom; his ties to mob boss Michelis Vilanakis, however, make her wonder how far he’ll go for control. Michelis is truly vile—those who cross him are either killed or branded with his initials and kept as slaves. Amber was a hot mess even before she used Michelis to get to Reeve, and it’s doubtful that someone in Emily’s position would view her as competition, even if they did share men in the past. However, Emily’s conflicted loyalty to the friend who both led her to ruin and saved her from it rings true. The tension mounts when a body turns up at the ranch, forcing the three of them to retreat to Reeve’s private island, where only one of them will leave with Reeve’s heart.

A sordid love triangle for readers who like it rough.
