Feature: Last Call by Alannah Lynne

Wow, everyone is releasing books this week or having special blog tours. I can't keep up!

Next up, we have Ms. Alannah Lynne, who I have had the immense pleasure of working with recently. Tomorrow, October 2nd, she is releasing her next installment of the Heat Wave series, Last Call. I think it is pretty spectacular, but I might be a little biased ;-).

Tomorrow, Alannah will be by to answer a few questions for us so you can get to know all about her and her sexy characters.  Be sure to stop by and check it out!

Last Call (Heat Wave #2)
by Alannah Lynne
Published September 25, 2012
ISBN: 9780988436909

Available format: ebook

My Rating: ★★★★★

Sunny has worked very hard to provide a good, stable life for her brother and herself. But one night, while she's working at the Blackout, a handsome stranger comes in and rocks her world. Everything Robby and she have built is suddenly threatened by the job this man has come to do. Will she be able to stand her ground and save their life, literally? Will Gavin be able to fulfill his job or will he finally follow his heart?

I'll be the first to tell you I'm not usually one for romance.  But I have definitely been fortunate enough to enjoy some really great romance novels, especially during editing, and Last Call is certainly one of them.

I was lucky enough to work with the author on this novel, and from the very beginning, I was truly impressed. Alannah is fantastic at building these characters and perfectly painting the picture of their lives for the reader. Each character has their completely realistic traits that every reader will be able to relate to on some level. In this way, it is so easy to be drawn into the story, to experience everything right alongside Sunny, Gavin, Robby, Callie, and even dear old Max :-).

I tell people all the time, there is a difference between raunchy romance and very tastefully written romance, and Alannah's brand is definitely on the tasteful side, which makes it that much better for me. I'm not a prude, but I do have to draw the line somewhere! Don't fret, though. You are sure to find yourself a little hot and bothered as relationships build and connections begin to escalate. But, surrounding all that is a fantastic story that anyone can enjoy.

I definitely recommend grabbing yourself a copy of Last Call (and Alannah's other novels!) if you are a romance fan.  And, if not—well, you should grab a copy anyway and give it a try!

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for Alannah's interview!!
