The Last Husband by J.S. Cooper
Release date: June 26, 2013
My rating: 3.5 stars
Lucky wanted a guy to be her last boyfriend but she never counted on love not being enough.
Lucky Morgan fantasized about the hot guy from her diner for months. And when he offered her a dream job, she jumped at the chance to get to know him better.
Zane Beaumont was skeptical about love and guarded his heart. Even though he was falling for Lucky, he was still scared to fully let go. So he makes a decision that may ruin their once chance at happiness.
Both of their lives are turned upside down by some unexpected news and Lucky has to decide, once and for all, if Zane is the guy she wants to spend her forever with.
This book was a little better than the first one. J.S.’s writing is improving. I still had a hard time with this. I like the story and the drama in the book. It kept me reading. However, I still had a difficult time with the dialog. It is cheesy. It’s like teenagers’ banter rather than two adults talking. I get that she is trying to make their interactions more real-like, but it doesn’t always come off that way.
In The Last Boyfriend we found Lucky only wanting to have her last boyfriend. Now that she found that one, we now have her clinging to him wanting to make sure he will be her one and last husband. However, Zane is good at avoiding love. Even though he has professed his love, he makes the decision to make things even more complicated. I liked this idea. It plays out well. Once you get past the dialog at some parts, you will find that this book is different from others you have read. It is original in its own aspects.
“You suck.” I rolled over to stare at him, my body still a quivering mess.
“Oh yeah?” He rolled over so he was facing me and his eyes sparkled. “I thought you liked it when I sucked?”
“You wish.” He reached over and kissed my nose. “You’ve got such a cute button nose, did you know that?”
“No.” I smiled back at him, staring into his eyes.
“I want to bite it, it’s so cute.”
“You want to bit everything.” I laughed.
“I do?” He smirked at me. “If you say so.”
“You love to bite.”
“I’d love to bite your butt.”
“What?” I looked at him curiously. “My butt?”
“Yeah.” He laughed. “Does that shock you?”
“You’d have to want to do a bit more than that to shock me.” I laughed. “A lot more.”
