Short & Sweet Review: Last Call by Alice Clayton

Title: Last Call
Author: Alice Clayton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Cocktail #5
Publication Date: 6th January 2015
Pages: 176
Book Source: Simon & Schuster AU

Synopsis: This Cocktail series novella reunites readers with Caroline and Simon from the wildly successful Wallbanger.

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.

Karen's Thoughts:
There are two authors that top my list for writing really hilarious tales, Emma Chase is one and Alice Clayton is the other. I’ve reviewed Wallbanger on Goodreads and I was so excited when Teddyree offered me Last Call. 

If questionable language and down and dirty sex offend you then don’t bother picking up the Cocktail series, but if you're not fazed then Alice Clayton is a must read. I guarantee you'll be laughing out loud. 

I wanted to include a funny snippet in my review but I flagged so many pages I couldn't decide which one and maybe read out of context it wouldn't be quite as funny. There's a certain sadness knowing you're reading the final book in a series but I'm consoling myself with the fact that I'll be laughing my head off with The Hudson Valley series coming out later this year.
