Release day blitz: Last Call by Staci Hart
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.
Been waiting forever to know what happened with Tricky and Rose and for them to get back together because they just had to.
Finally their book is here!
How do you move on when she's the only thing that feels right?
Rose sticks to her decsions that includes her breakup with her ex Patrick "Tricky" and when he shows up with another girl on his arm shortly after their breakup there was no going back for her. What doesn't help is the fact that he's everywhere and now that their friends are in relationships they have more time alone. Despite it all Rose isn't changing her mind and is now determined to try dating again.
Patrick's life hasn't been easy, his mom walked out, his dad is all but a stranger to him and he lost the woman he loves because of his own foolishness. When Rose wakes up and finds Patrick sleeping Lily's bed one day it changes everything. Patrick is desperate for sleep, sleep he isn't getting due to West and Lily's noises at all times of the night. He makes a deal with Lily to sleep in her bed, but without Rose knowing about it. After she finds out she's mad at both of them, but agrees to let him stay, but only to sleep and nothing more.
What Patrick sees is an opening. A chance. A chance to get the woman he loves back. She's stubborn, but he can tell she still cares.
Rose was everywhere. Habits. Down the hall. Every day, always. She lived in my thoughts, in my heart, present in nearly every moment of my life. She was my ghost, haunting me, and I couldn't escape. I didn't know if I wanted to. It was my penance.
Oh Tricky and Rose...most of the time I just wanna push their faces together so they can kiss and make up already! Seeing their POV's it's obvious that they both still have feelings for eachother. On the other hand I get why Rose is holding back and why Patrick isn't forcing the issue.
That being said it is a huuuuge relief when something finally do happen between them, but you also know that it's them sort of falling into old habits and for it to work in the long run they'll need to at least talk it all over.
"I love you. Even when it hurts."
Staci Hart has once again created an emotional and amazing book. It's sweet, it's funny and of course some steam to warm you up. I just love her writing, it really makes you connect with these characters. While I go on and on about the love here, it's not all it's about, I really connected with Rose and how she feels as if her friends have their passions and she just isn't sure what hers is.. yet. Not only do we experience a great love story, but it's also about life.
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.
