This was a beautifully written romance. The descriptive wording took you to another time and helped you to follow the characters through their life. I felt as though I could reach out and touch the characters which were well written and real. I shed some tears in the first chapter which totally hooked me. A lot of writers can't swap back and forth between time periods fluidly, but this author was able to do it effortlessly. Awesome read for anyone that loves romance. It deserves all five stars.

Before reading this book, I knew how old the author was. Sometimes, that's a good thing, sometimes not.

Mr. McIntyre is a young man, and it's his first book of fiction--a love story yet. Love stories are deeply personal, so I was intrigued but slightly apprehensive. How would someone his age portray a love that transcends war, loss, and the cruelty of the passage of time? How would he tell a sweeping epic that I assumed was beyond his own personal experience?

I am very happy Mr. McInytre's treatme

McIntyre manages to do something that I consider to be rather unique within the overflowing realm of chick lit. Although this is, at its most basic level, a simple story of two people slowly finding themselves in each other, what it truly is, at its core, is a look at the process of loving another person through the emotional level.

McIntyre's THE LAST DANCE strips away many of the pieces that most would consider the necessary pieces of a romance novel and focuses on the emotions of his two main

I don't normally read romance, but McIntyre pleasantly surprised me with THE LAST DANCE. His unique style of starting at the end and telling this love story in a way that does not follow a linear path at first left me disconnected. However, it didn't take long to get adjusted to his style. McIntyre does a wonderful job of weaving the story together while going back and forth between different times of James' and Alejandra's lives. The writing is poetic and I found myself really caring about thes ...more

198pgs, two souls meant to be together but torn apart by war, misunderstandings and hurt. Bittersweet and deeply romantic, it moves through the significant moments in the lives of these two star-crossed lovers, From a chance meeting to a look and a touch, to the promises made and the disappointment found, a story of loss, longing, hope and faith, as they are forced to examine who they are and what they really need if they are ever to turn their fairy-tale romance into a lifelong love
