She swore she would never fall to any man.
He took one look at her and vowed to bring her down.
Casey Markham is a man-eater in a rut. Swearing off relationships may keep her heart safe, but she’s beginning to question if her casual flings will ever leave her satisfied. She’s wondering if it’s finally time to let go of the past and stop letting history control her future.
Bad boy biker, Tenn Jennings can’t get Casey off his mind. A chance encounter with the beautiful blond has left its mark, and now he’s determined to prove her wrong about everything she thought she knew about men.
It’s safe to say… Casey Markham has met her match.
SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED is the fifth and final book in the Last Call series and is about Casey (Hunter and Brody’s little sister) and Tenn (a new arrival in town).
After having her heart broken at the tender age of eighteen, Casey has sworn of relationships. She avoids good, kind and honest men because those types have the potential to thaw the ice around her heart. Instead, she sleeps with men exactly like her first boyfriend, because when she disposes of them and makes them feel worthless, she doesn’t feel worthless herself. I liked her enough, but at times I found her a little immature and I didn’t like it when she played games, especially with Tenn.
I really liked Tenn. He seemed like a cool and easygoing guy and I loved how much he loved his daughter, willing to move across the country to be closer to her. However, for a man who hates his ex-wife because of the mind games she plays, I was surprised that he didn’t seem to have a problem with Casey’s games and that he would play them himself at times.
SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. I thought I recognised Tenn’s name, but it wasn’t until he talked about being a cowboy that I realised he’s Woolf’s brother from The Wicked Horse series, which is a spin-off of this series. Yes, I read the series out of order. It also took me a while to realise that Kyle (Andrea’s brother) is the same Kyle from WICKED BOND, the undercover ATF agent that was killed. Spoiler alert: He wasn’t really killed, because his own book, FINDING KYLE, came out last month.
