Last Chance is a story of love and heartache proving that life is not always fair, but it’s worth the pain to get the moments you’ll treasure forever.
From the very first moment I laid eyes on him, I knew my heart was his for the taking. He was the boy who filled me with butterflies and made my palms turn clammy at the mere sight of him.
There was only one problem… he was my best friend’s older brother.
It’s been eight years since I’ve last seen him, and I refuse to live another day without telling him the truth. So here I stand, taking my last chance to get him to notice me, my last chance to see if he feels the same way.
I need to know if he is just a fantasy, or if he could be my reality…
Before my reality changes forever.
I never wanted a girlfriend; I was burned by love and vowed to never go down that road again. But when the beautiful girl I’ve known practically my entire life snuck her way into my arms there was something that changed in me. I wanted to be with her, next to her. Just simply kissing her lips made my life complete.
Now I have one mission.
To make hers complete, too.
Childhood crush….CHECK Bucket List….CHECK Hot lawyer….DOUBLE CHECK Cry your eyes out….CHECK CHECK CHECK!!!
Mackenzie…this young woman melted my heart. She is so much fun, yet she is going through some difficult things in her life. Her innocence clashes with her fantasies while she tries to check things off of her bucket list. At first I thought she was very immature for her age, that she acted like she was in high school rather than being close to finishing college. Once I got to know her that changed…I saw a lot of myself in her, how I would act around a crush (if I wasn’t married ;) ), the giddy feeling you get when the boy you like gives you attention…of the memories!
Connor…the boy next door, the best friend’s brother, the oh so hot lawyer who is determined to be single and just have fun. It’s amazing how things can change in the blink of an eye, when you least expect it too. He’s set in his ways, his job is perfect, he has an amazing apartment, what else could he need.
“I can’t get the image of her out of my head.”
Kenzie has been in love with Connor for as long as she can remember….can you remember that crush from your childhood, the one that you would do anything to get and when it finally happens you think it can’t possibly be real?! These two have known each other since they were just kids so there interactions are easy, making the transition in their relationship fairly uncomplicated. They are both consenting adults finding something that they didn’t know they were missing in Connor’s case or something that they have been dreaming about forever.
Sometimes life isn’t fair, this story proves that. I’m not going to say much because I am not a spoiler but be prepared to cry. You also need to be prepared to swoon because the lengths that Connor goes through to make Mackenzie happy and fulfilled will melt your heart and wish that he was yours!
I want to be happy as long as I can. Is that too much to ask?
