Synopsis: A new adult romance from Entangled’s Embrace imprint…
Some things can never be fixed…
Nothing feels right. Not since my best friend died and I screwed up the one promise he asked me to make. The past follows me everywhere, tangling me up like weeds, reminding me that my life is empty. So goddamn empty.
Then she walks into the bar, all bright beauty and sweet lips made for kissing.
Em Stewart is a complication…one I need to avoid. She’s got heavy secrets of her own, ones she hides from her friends—and lies about to herself.
No matter how hard I try, I can’t resist her, and our unexpected road trip sure as hell isn’t helping my cause. But I’ll be damned if I screw up my first chance at something real…
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Review: This book…I mean really. This book is full of feels, I kind of ran the gamut of emotions. A great coming of age romance.
Em and Ronan are both a little broken. Em is in a bad relationship with a real douche bag. She knows it’s not healthy, but she can’t let it go. Ronan is broken up over the death of his best friend and can’t let it go. They run into each other at the local bar one night after not seeing each other for quite some time. They give each other pep talks and a shoulder to lean on, but go their separate ways. Em makes a rash decision that ends poorly and she has no choice but to ask Ronan for help. Ronan comes to the rescue and things heat up from there.
There is a lot going on in this book and while it can be read as a standalone, it is the second book in the series, and I kind of wish I had read book one before I read this. I say this because I was a bit confused at the beginning not understanding what the conflict was that was causing Ronan’s issues. That being said, it is explained later in the book, so that helps.
This is a great friends-to-lovers romance with a sweet but sexy hero and a heroine you can’t help but love.
Last Wish takes you on journey of second chances, forgiveness, self-redemption and ultimately finding love in the people that have been there all along.. This is Em and Ronan’s story.
