Cath Talarico knows a mistake when she makes it, and God knows she’s made her share. So many, in fact, that this Chicago girl knows London is her last, best shot at starting over. But bad habits are hard to break, and soon Cath finds herself back where she has vowed never to go . . . in the bed of a man who is all kinds of wrong: too rich, too classy, too uptight for a free-spirited troublemaker like her.
Nev Chamberlain feels trapped and miserable in his family’s banking empire. But beneath his pinstripes is an artist and bohemian struggling to break free and lose control. Mary Catherine — even her name turns him on — with her tattoos, her secrets, and her gamine, sex-starved body, unleashes all kinds of fantasies.
When blue blood mixes with bad blood, can a couple that is definitely wrong for each other ever be perfectly right? And with a little luck and a lot of love, can they make last night last a lifetime?
About Last Night started out a little slow for me and, at the beginning, I didn’t see how it was different than any other dozen contemporary romances available. Career-oriented heroine has an almost one night stand with uptight sexy hero, big regrets, she pushes him away, blah, blah, blah. Within a few chapters, I realized that wasn’t the case.
Cath has made some major mistakes in her life and she owns them. They aren’t brushed aside as youthful indiscretions, they are handled with respect for the serious consequences these decisions have left behind. Cath not only doesn’t trust those around her, she doesn’t trust herself. As a result, she tries to keep her relationship with Nev just physical while he tries to tear down every wall she puts between them.
I loved the balance between the smoking hot scenes and the darker emotional moments. I was fully invested in Cath and Nev and was holding my breath, waiting for the moment when all would be revealed. And when all was revealed, it was just as intense as the build up led me to hope for. The ending has one of the best hero grovels I’ve ever read, all without the hero speaking a word. Totally sigh-worthy.
