"Last Call" By: Alice Clayton Review


Last Call
By: Alice Clayton

Simon and Caroline are back for another round of baking, banging, and big life changes. Settling in, but never settling down, Caroline has finally struck a balance between the professional and the personal. As one of the top interior designers in San Francisco, she travels all over Northern California between nook time with Simon.

Perpetual globetrotter Simon has cut his frequent flyer miles in half over the last year, preferring to balance his professional and personal life, as well.

The next step in their lives seems preordained—toasts, veils, and the aisle of rose petals. But when an accident on a photo shoot in Southeast Asia brings Caroline the most terrifying phone call she could ever imagine, she has to ask whether “till death do us part” is a more realistic prospect than faces most couples.

It’s been a grand adventure, and Caroline and Simon wouldn’t go out without the best surprise ending ever. One part sexy, one part laughter, a dash of exotic locales, and one pink nightie, mixed with passion, and you’ve got Last Call. Served with a side of Clive.

My Thoughts
    Let’s be clear, this book absolutely cannot be read as a stand alone. The conclusion (or is it?) of Simon and Caroline’s story that began in Wallbanger, this book shows how life has changed for the couple and their friends. Everyone is either having babies or getting married, except for Simon and Caroline. Things are still good, just unchanged. When Caroline’s friends start hinting about a ring and Simon’s friends start having babies, they each begin to look to their futures and wonder what else is out there.
     A short story about Caroline and Simon’s life after the happily ever after, you can’t help but cheer for America’s favorite couple. Having loved Wallbanger and voraciously reading Ruty Nailed, I couldn’t help but be swept up in their world once again. I really enjoyed reading how everyone had changed yet stayed the same. Funny, sweet, and super sexy, Caroline and Simon’s finale is a deservedly wonderful finish to a great storyline.
