Sarah Keating was sure she’d be married by 30. Husband, kids, the kick-ass career helping adults with Down Syndrome—she assumed she’d have it all, and there’d be no need to fall back on the marriage pact she made with her best pal from college.

But a tipsy message she sends from her birthday party brings Ian Nolan to her door ready to rock her world, and not just with mind-blowing sex. He’s up for tying the knot, and has a million pragmatic reasons it makes perfectly good sense.

As Sarah and Ian test drive their marriage-of-convenience, they navigate awkward business dinners, a slippery steam room hookup, and a costume party gone awry. Their friendship is stronger than ever, and the sexual chemistry is off the charts.

But is that enough to make a marriage work, or will one of them fall hard and end up brokenhearted?

Each book in the The List series is STANDALONE:* The List* The Test* The Last

Holy raunchy loofahs, Batman! Boy is The Last one hot book, so if you’re in the mood for sexiness galore, a hunky ginger and a great time don’t miss this one!

Sarah and Ian were best friends in college, with great chemistry but never quite the right timing, they remained distant acquaintances through the years. Sarah’s 30th birthday, lots of champagne and some IMing brings Ian to her door to fulfill a pact that had been forgotten up until that night. If they were still single by age 30 they’d get married.

Both unattached but ready to settle down, they embark in a tryout period to make sure they are compatible to sustain a committed partnership… And although that isn’t exactly the way Sarah imagined her marriage being, well, she can’t deny they get along perfectly in every way and she hasn’t had any luck finding Mr. Right.

Ian’s heart broke with a loss in his past, and he isn’t willing to risk that kind of pain ever again. He has many reasons why this marriage of convenience will go the distance when those fueled by supposed love and passion fail.

I really liked Sarah and Ian both. Sarah was incredibly compassionate and loved her work. She was funny and sassy, sweet and caring. Ian was super sexy with his dirty mouth and bossiness in the bedroom (and the steam room, and the car, and the conference table… you know what I mean) and when he let his guard down and he left himself feel the connection he shared with Sarah was simply amazing.

I especially loved seeing them together, their chemistry was absurdly hot and they scorched my kindle screen every time with their sexnanigans. I will admit that Ian’s unwillingness to open up eventually got on my nerves, but as he eventually got his head out of his butt and went all out to win Sarah, all was forgiven… did I mention he could dirty talk like a boss?

Engaging, sweet and incredibly hot, The Last was an amazing read I enjoyed from start to finish.

Rating: 3.5+ “Gingers rule” Stars
