When his phone rings in the middle of the night, he’s halfway to the door before he realizes that it isn’t his chief calling him in for an out-of-control fire. The woman on the other end, however, is a little out of control, and in fact a lot drunk. Before he can explain that he’s not her brother, her cell phone cuts out. His conscience won’t let him leave the woman waiting, but is he prepared for the chemistry that flares once the stranger climbs into his truck?
Joanne has gone and done it this time, after a horrendous day she followed her brothers advice and got good and tanked. Problem is, now she can’t drive home. She attempts to call her brother to come and pick her up…instead she dials Eric…an off duty fireman.
All Eric wants to do is sleep. The life of a fireman is hard work and requires complete dedication. Eric has just come off a 48 hour shift and just wants to relax. When his phone rings in the middle of the night he’s expecting a fire, not a drunk woman trying to reach her brother. When her phone dies before he can tell her she dialed the wrong number, he knows he can’t leave her there. A drunk woman in a bar parking lot is just asking for trouble.
When these two come together the result is nothing short of fireworks. When the morning light dawns and Joanne’s brother shows up..how can Eric ever explain his lie of being her brothers friend. And how can he tell Joanne that their night of absolute abandon and sensuality has changed him forever.
Last Call is a super fast, smoking hot read by Olivia Brynn. This was the first sample of Olivia’s writing for me and I must say, I am hooked. I can’t wait to get my hands on something else! Last Call was so much fun! I want to read it all over again right now and I just put it down. Speaking of putting it down, I couldn’t…not for a second. I was hooked from the opening scene to the last word. My one gripe? That it wasn’t longer. I felt like Olivia could have turned this into a full length novel easily. I’m not sure how she managed to make me fall in love with the characters in such a short time…its a mystery as I don’t normally do that, but she did.
I guess I love a hot fireman…ok, I admit, I love most hot guys, but put one in a uniform and you’ve definitely turned my head effectively. Eric is all steel muscles banded over a Playgirl centerfold body. He is a totally caring guy who didn’t have to go out in the middle of the night to pick up a girl who thought she dialed her brother. The fact that he did had me sighing out loud.I fell for him instantly.
Joanne has had a horrible day. She is feeling like a failure. No job, no boyfriend and several blows to her ego, the day certainly could have gone better. She never expected to end the day drunk and in the arms of the most gorgeous fireman she’s ever laid eyes on. Even if he does keep telling her no….at first. Yes, well, better late than never to have an upswing in the day right? I loved her character. Let’s be honest here..who hasn’t dreamed of this scenario? Most of us ladies have. However in real life you usually wake up next to some guy that has his hands down the front of his boxer shorts and you SWEAR he was better looking the night before…you know….when you were seeing two of him. *SIGH* That’s why we have authors like Olivia Brynn. To take what would usually be a horrifying experience and make it into a fairy tale dream come true.
This is most definitely an erotic romance short story..so not for the faint of heart 🙂 But for those of us who like it hot enough to make you squirm in your seat..Last Call is a must read!
I give Last Call by Olivia Brynn 4 stars!
