The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise

Spoiler Free

Earlier today I received a surprise... this arc by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise... both authors who have given me hours and hours of smart, sexy, joyous reading. No one needed to twist my arm to start this right away...and I am glad I did.

This takes the forbidden office romance and places it firmly in a busy newsroom. The premise has a driven, focused woman who has put her time in at this station and is aiming to take over the Weekend Anchor Position.

Rebecca Fieldstone knows she has the goods to do right by the station and herself. Her reputation is solid and the community likes her. Her boss, the station manager use to like her too... but lately he has been gunning for her to fail...So she must stay the course... keep bringing in strong stories and show the Board what an asset she is...Only now it has become an up hill battle with all these fluff pieces the manager keeps assigning her.

Rebecca is also distracted...there is a sexy ex football player who has taken over the Sports Division. She sees him and her pulse goes out of wack... she dreams about him and this is not good. She also doesn't like his cocky attitude and the fact he had no journalism experience before the Station took him on...

What Rebecca doesn't know is Cade Hill has more than paid his dues... on the field and off. With Super Bowl wins and a law degree, he is more than capable to handle Sports for the station. He had his own desires... and then he blew out his knee. It also didn't help that his society fiance left him during his time of need. When his first dream was smashed, Cade rebounded stronger and figured out how to stay an active player in Sport when he couldn't on the field.

These two keep crossing paths at the station and it becomes very intense... the chemistry is insane.

Both have these thoughts about the other
Both know it is career suicide to do the office romance

And both end up at the same club, getting smashed and living out their personal fantasies with each other...The Sex is out of this World Insanely Good...All of the moving parts work perfectly... even when his are XXL sized....

But this hook up must be a one time thing....

Really, cause I don't think so....
And neither did these Authors...

They created a story with lots of sexy times, humor and heart... with a dashes of subplot points. There are huge doses of Cultural Touchstones of all sorts...references to specific Fast Food, a Drag Queen bestie/roommate who has a large following and does Ru Paul, and a viral video to name a few...

The dialogue is loaded... loaded with lots of sexual tension, dirty sexy talk when these two are doing the nasty. Overall, this has all of the makings for a fun read by these two authors. I can just imagine what they may think up next...for this has all of the elements for more...

A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.
