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
Now I have one mission.
To make hers complete, too.
Review by Christine:
Last Chance by Lauren Runow is a heatbreakingly emotional tale that will be your next ugly cry read that will give you all the perfect feels wrapped in a love story for the ages. I love when I can’t completely predict a story-line and this was one that had me for a bit and throws you for a couple loops while playing out.
Mackenzie has been in love with her best-friends brother since she was a pre-teen. There comes a time in everyone’s lives that it’s time to take a chance at your fantasy. Connor has always been focused on his career, especially after getting mixed up in a love triangle and losing out to his best friend. When he meets a stunning stranger and spends an extraordinary evening he never expects that’s she’s Mackenzie and his sisters best friend.
I love when a story grips me from the first chapter and this one not only did that but checked off every box needed for a top read of 2018! You’ll laugh, cry, want to scream and falling in love along side these beautiful characters. 5 “Adventure List” stars for Last Chance by Lauren Runow
