He’s hiding inner demons that drove him away from town. She’s sworn off bad boys. Their passion erupts while trapped in a snow storm, but will she ever see him again?”
After losing a patient, Dr. John “Butch” Daniels questioned his ability to continue as a doctor and left town to find himself. It’s time for him to return to Oak Grove after several months away. Caught in a snowstorm on the way into town, Butch stops in to what used to be his favorite motorcycle bar, Last Call, only to find it under new management. That’s not the only thing changed, as he spots the sexy, spunky bartender.
Carla’s a loner, not able to hold on to the ones she loves. Her father left before she was born, her mother ignored her growing up, and her “bad boy” boyfriend brought her to Oak Grove and then unceremoniously dumped her. Despite that, she maintains a positive outlook on life. Thankfully the new owner of J.J.’s Bar and Grill offers her a lifeline in the form of a job and place to live. As they are closing up one night before a snow storm, a bearded stranger steps in the door, and she can’t look away.
Sparks fly and Butch and Carla spend one steamy night together as the snowstorm rages outdoors. Carla awakes the next morning to find Butch gone without even leaving a note. Typical. Will Butch and Carla find their way back to each other or will their one night together be their Last Call?
love happens fast
good read, great characters and plot.
What a lucky snow storm
I love a Love at First Sight story or at least an attraction at first sight story. Carla has baggage, so no more bad boys. Butch comes in in leather covered with patches, but Carla can't help liking this gorgeous guy that doesn't talk like your normal biker. And Carla soothes Butch's troubled soul.
This short sweet read feels like a much bigger tale. I love the characters and their story.
Great new author
Goodness. Last Call is a great story and I can't wait for One Last Risk to be released.
John 'Butch' Daniels, haunted by demons, took a leave of absence, grabbed a camera and hopped on his motorcycle. He was due back to work the next day so he headed back to Oak Grove and home as the snow started to fall. As fate would have it, the furnace was out so headed back to Last Call to catch up with his motorcycle buddies and grab a bite to eat while the house warmed up.
A lot of changes had happened while he was gone. There was a new coffee and muffin shop and his motorcycle hangout was now a respectable looking restaurant and bar.
Carla USED to be attracted to bad boys and the tall, muscular man with long hair and leathers was just what she was trying to avoid. She was working at JJ's after her former boyfriend dumped her in Oak Grove.
A winter storm made it impossible for Butch to get back home and he asked to spend the night on one of the restaurant's booths. Instead, they end up together on her sofa. With his demons still haunting him, he leaves in the morning without a word. Back to his job as an E.R. doctor.
I was given a copy of this book for a fair review, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
