Once again I seem to have been mislead.
This time however it wasn't the cover that got me interested, even though it's a pretty nice cover.

The sample. God. Damn you samples.

I never, and I mean NEVER buy a book without getting a sample first to see whether or not it's worth me buying it. Doesn't matter how little the price. I thought I'd scored with this book. Sadly I was yet again mistaken. Mind you, the first few chapters were pretty good, after that not so much.

It got really old, really fast. T
I got taken yet again by a sexy cover and a clever title. I was a kind of anticipating the release of this book.
But around 10%....

Still, I figured I’d give it a good ol’ college try and by 30%

The first thing that got me was the dialogue. It was stilted at best and awkward/unbelievable/who-talks like-that at its worst.
“I was just coming to get some water.” I muttered, unable to stop myself from looking at his naked chest. Zane looked even more handsome and muscular than I had imagined, and

I heard this book was getting a lot of high ratings so I decided to give it a try.

It did not meet my expectations. The writing was choppy which I would have been able to get over if the story line had been better.

The story is rushed and multiple areas of the book the author could have expanded on which would have helped with character development. The author left key character development parts out making it hard as a reader to buy into the character's decisions.

This book was incredibly bad. I couldn't go three pages without gagging on cheese or rolling my eyes at the INSANELY stupid decisions and thoughts of the characters. The hero goes from hot to cold in every conversation. At first I thought, 'Oh, another bipolar. Er... maybe multiple personality disorder? I can get behind that.' Nope. He's just a poorly written asshole.

From this point on are baby spoilers.

The heroine... What a stupid bitch. 'I see this hot guy every friday with a different model
OMG. This is horrible. Everything about it so far is cheesy, and predictable. I can't even finish the first chapter.
Lucky is annoying. She keeps contradicting herself, and getting worked up over nothing. Ugh. I can't stand her. Her coworker makes a judgmental assumption about Zane and she tells them not to judge a book by its cover (those are her exact words. Cheesy dialogue much?!) and then the next paragraph goes on to say 'I can tell from his looks that he's bad bf material'. Omg seriously? N

First, I absolutely LOVE the title The Last Boyfriend; I think it’s cute and clever. After finishing reading the book I love it even more! :)

The Last Boyfriend is about 22 year-old Lucky. A college senior/waitress who doesn’t even have enough money to pay to get her 1991 Toyota fixed. Lucky works in a small diner, barley getting by. She has no real life, doesn’t date anymore after getting her heart broken. Lucky refuses to date just anybody; she wants he

Ok... this was lame. Reading it, I felt like someone wrote this in a hurry. Maybe on a carton box or on the square notepad (with 'to-do list' in front) while waiting for coffee or waiting in line in local supermarket . I do love random conversations and ramblings, but this is actually ridiculous.

There is NO ROMANCE, at all. None. I don't understand why people call it romantic. There's just sex and arguments. In that order. No wait, there is something else. There is... What is it? Oh, wait. Argui
I hate to give books one star. In general, if a book is decently formatted and breaks fewer than three rules of grammar/spelling per page, I'll give it two stars for effort.

But this book?

This book deserves negative stars.

Oh, it's formatted decently enough and while the grammar is rough, it's about your average American public school fifth grade level (I'm not trying to knock public schools. I went to one, my relatives teach at others. But let's face it. Public education is currently under so man

Gosh, this book fell so flat I actually fell sorry for it! The first thing drawing me was the cover, and yes I tend to do this quiet often and what a disappointment that turns out to be!!!

SO at first I was like Ok, I feel sorry for Lucky, she was acting like a slut during her college days so then when she was treated like one and dumped like one she fell hard and now is giving celebacy a try until MR. RIGHT comes along.. She works at a diner for pennies while going to school - each friday night

I was drawn in by the cover and, after I read a few of the 5-star reviews, decided to go for it. That was a mistake. I should have dug deeper into the reviews and put the cover out of my head. This one was shallow and missing on all cylinders in my opinion.

There wasn’t much to grab hold of story-wise and the writing lacked quality and a smooth flow. I didn’t like either of the main characters, who lacked depth and personality. Nothing made me want to know them better or cheer them to happily-eve

I really wanted to like this book - it got good reviews and you know, there's the cover... :))

But man, I got whiplash. Lucky would form an opinion about a guy just to out of nowhere, change it a paragraph later. And I sit here like, 'wait, I thought you decided he was boring and coming on too strong and you can't stop thinking about why are you now thinking that given the chance Braydon could make you happy and could be The Last Boyfriend??!' What did I just miss?

I also hate characters
It's poorly written, the editing is bad, I didn't get a feel for anyone's personality and therefore didn't like or dislike anyone. The dialogue from the men was entirely unbelievable. Most of what was said sounded like what a woman would want to hear and not what a man would actually say. The main character tells all of the guys they are acting creepy at one point or another but she still goes on dates with them or sleeps with them. And, SPOILER ALERT, the main love interest tells her not to han ...more

Geez, where to start....this book just was all wrong but MAN the cover was hot, wasn't it? I bet you where like "damn Gina, this book gonna be hottttttttt". At least that was me. This book fell so flat I actually felt sorry for it. The heroine was so friggin annoying, and that's alot coming from me. As I typically like the easy going, more submissive heroines.

Damn. I had such high hopes for this one. I'm bummed it didn't turn out so well for me. I felt the characters were under-developed. There wasn't enough background into some aspects of the story - Zane's issue came *LATE* and Lucky's were basically skimmed over in the beginning. I sadly didn't feel any connection to the characters and I for sure didn't feel any romance here. Lust? Sure. But I didn't see their (Lucky and Zane's) connection. And there really isn't any romance.

All those people that rated with 5 stars should start reading more and better books... I mean, this was bad!
I saw the ratings and thought to give it a try. I read it all in one day, because it's really short. I am not opposed to short stories, i am, however, opposed to bad stories. This was poorly written, there were many holes in the story, you don't get attached to any character, you don't like Braydon or Zane, for that matter in any part of the book.

Originally posted at Bungalow Books.

Initial Thoughts:
I was looking for a light, quick read and this one had some good reviews. It also fit with my ridiculous romance novel streak I've got going on lately.

The Pros:
Lucky's "rules" that she instated were really smart. I wish I would have given myself some of those rules back in my early 20's.

I liked the scenes in the diner. Something about being a bystander watching someones life unfold intrigues me.

There was an element of suspense that I somewhat

I was a beta reader and received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I have to admit that in the beginning I was thinking that Zane was a crazy stalker serial killer or something but when you delve into the book and learn about the man, you find yourself falling helplessly in love. Lucky is a lot more trusting then she should have been. She took chances that most sane women wouldn't but if you don't take chances you don't reap great rewards. I knew that there was something about Brayden, I j

I was given an ARC copy of this book by the author.

When I first started reading it I was hooked from the beginning. Needless to say I was only given 2 chapters at a time to read. After I was done reading those chapters I felt like I was left with a cliffhanger and wanting more. When I finally got the whole story I was hooked and I couldn't put it down. I loved the story that was building with Zane and Lucky. Even though I found myself wanting to scream at them for fighting against their feeling

what a fantastic book!!!! i got so hooked into the story!!! Lucky and Zane together kept me laughing out loud....the way their characters could go from being serious to cracking eachother...loved it! my fave part is Lucky talking about her parents, very touching! the plot kept me guessing the whole time and it is just so well written. cant wait for The Last Husband!!!! 5+stars for The Last Boyfriend!!!

I can't even begin to say how much of a monstrosity this book is. A complete clusterfuck.

We start the adventure of the half page prologue in Zane's third person. It was just enough to leave you on a questionable edge.
"He had to be focused on the plan at hand, and he couldn't allow emotions to get in the way of what he needed to do."

So what I gathered from that is, Zane is either an incredibly sensitive man, driven to find himself, or he is a CIA agent. Unfortunatly for me, he was n

I really enjoyed this book. I was completely intruded by Zane. You know he's hiding something, and I found myself running down a thousand possible roads as to what it might be. I did get close, but I never quite figured it out. I love a book like that. I like not knowing the whole story. It think the "mystery" was my favorite part of the book. The plot was original (once you know what's going in behind the scenes) and I enjoy being surprised.

This is not to say I didn't like Lucky and Z

So many mixed reviews! What should you believe as a reader?? (Mild Spoilers)

First off you can def tell this is self published (not bad in my eyes) as someone who eventually wants to self publish too I read lots of books like this....NA, con-rom novels are my fav! This fits nicely into that title.

So was it as great as Abbi Glines novels (which are my fav)? No. It wasn't. But it still was okay, fun, cute, and a quick read. I'd recommend it.

I really found this book to be an original and it was a very enjoyable read. It's a little difficult to say what it is about, but essentially there is a 22 year old woman named Lucky. She is a student and works as a waitress at a diner to make her ends meet. While working there, she meets a rich, hot & sexy guy named Zane. Lucky is not interested in dating to have her heart broken again, so she has set rules for herself so that the next guy she dates will be the last guy she dates. Zane is a tot ...more

Lucky is offered a job from Zane to be his assistant; it’s not really what she wants from Zane but it’s a dream job for Lucky.

I am honored to have been selected to be a beta reader for this book. Lucky is just that. Lucky. I loved this book and impatiently await the next. The relationship between lucky, Zane , and Brayden is enough to drive you insane. I wanted Lucky to choose correctly but couldn't decide until the end who that would be. This book definitely does not disappoint and is no where close to predictable. I don't want to say to much so that I ruin it for everyone else. I think this is a definite TBR book. Co ...more

I think this author is a hit and miss or a one hit wonder. I liked a book of hers and this was a direct piece of sh*t in comparison. The writing was Wattpad. Wattpad material (that's my biggest insult by the way)

E.g. "Why does it suit me? Became I’m old and dowdy.”

I think she meant "because". The h can't keep with a conversation and is always confused and a ditz.
