Holy shit what a book!! I devoured this one!!!!

I hadn't read anything by Kate Roth before, I've heard great things so when I saw the opportunity to read and review Last Resort I jumped at the chance. And the results blew me away. Seriously, I read A BUNCH of books, but this book will be one that isn't easily forgotten.

Last Resort is well written with a story line I've not read before. Just imagine going to a "sex resort" and running into your celebrity crush?! That is e
Mo (The Scarlet Siren)
Kate Roth first won me over with her teacher/student romance in The Low Notes. Then I had some fun with an office romance in Natural Harmony. AND THEN. Then she brought Evan Weston into my life. Romance readers the world over will never be the same. A cocky, confident, dirty-talking Hollywood star, Evan is the lead in Last Resort, the first book in Roth’s Desire Resort series. Last Resort is sexy, playful, and even a little bit tender, and the story was one that’s not to be missed.

Danielle hasn’t had much luck in the sex department in YEARS. After he last boyfriend dumped her she ended up drinking too much and booking a nonrefundable trip to an adult only resort. Regretting the trip as soon as she gets there, she decides to muddle through it and at least drink and soak up the sun and along the way she meets a sweet couple who takes her under their wing.

Danielle Ward was feeling horrible about herself. Not having sex since she lost her virginity six years earlier. She has dated and men have tried but something always seemed to stop her from going all the way. Thinking there was something wrong with her after the last boyfriend dumpe

Last Resort was a light-hearted, sexy, entertaining read!
What would you do if, while on vacation at a SEX resort, you saw a famous hearthrob??
Well, that's EXACTLY what has happened to Danielle. She's decided it's time for a break and needs a relaxing vacation (well, maybe alcohol was involved in this decision) and just be away from the world. She needs a break from any and all pressures of sex, she's not exactly enthused to be at a coupl

It’s been so long since Danielle (Dani) has had sex that she may as well have reclaimed her V-card. After a less than stellar first time and a string of failed relationships that never ended in the deed, Dani has never been able to embrace her sexuality. Her most recent boyfriend Kyle dumps her, citing his number one reason as her inability to get over her sexual “issues”. Crying over one too many margaritas with her best friend Georgia, Dani gets on the Internet and makes a reservation at Desir ...more

I've read all of Kate's books before this one came out. She had asked me about reviewing for it, but I said no. Me and erotica don't mix. I'm not mature enough.

Anyway, it's been a little while since this was published. I see teasers from time to time on Facebook, and I've remained curious. I already knew I'm a fan of Kate's writing, so the only thing holding me back from reading this was all the sex.

Again, I'm not mature enough for such things. I mostly read YA fantasy. I typically skip sex scen

If I had to pick one book as my favorite read this summer, it would have to be Last Resort by Kate Roth! I am in love with this book. I sat by the pool and read it and was like a giddy schoolgirl the entire time. Smiling and giggling. I loved it.

So, Danielle hasn't had sex in like years... yes that says years. She has this weird type of phobia if you will, of the whole sex thing. After getting dumped and then getting drunk, Danielle book a vacation to the Desire Resorts (a sex haven if you will

Desire Resort, where you can give into all your desires. This is where Danielle Ward has found herself at a private adults only resort. Danielle has issues with letting her desires out, she cannot get intimate with any of her previous boyfriends. She has come to Desire Resort to get away from her issues and to let go and have some fun. Enter Evan Weston, Hollywood hottie and playboy. Evan has the exact opposite issue as Danielle, he gives into desire too often. This

What a fun read! At times funny, at times, sexy, this story keeps the reader entertained from the page to the last. The last page is a cliff-hanger but the second book is already released so no worries about having to wait to find out what happens. In fact, it isn't a big cliff-hanger.

Our heroine, Danielle hasn't had sex in 6 years, in fact she at times refers to her trip as her chance to lose her 2nd virginity. Danielle isn't technically a virgin but she's only had sex once. Literally only onc

Danielle, oh sweet Danielle. She doesn't know how to get out of her head. She rarely goes out, has a job she hasn't missed a day of in 3 years, she lives with her wild best friend and has had a few boyfriends. But no matter what she does, she can not get out of her head and relax enough to have sex with them, good mind blowing off the charts sex. She's never orgasmed with anyone but herself and she needs help. Enter sexy movie star Evan Weston. Is he the man for

Danielle is on a vacation she never thought she’d see herself do. Going to a resort, to get away from her ailing libido could it really happen? Can she get past that feeling? Booking a vacation to Desire Resort and Spa may have just what she thought she needed to get away from reality. BUT will it come to bite her in the butt in the end??

After running into Hollywood Hunk, Evan Weston, will her week get better or worse?

LAST RESORT was one of those books where the story pulled me in, unexpectedly, and had me loving the characters. Danielle and Evan may have had similar goals about why they were at the Mexican couples only resort, but the reasons that drove them there were very different. Danielle hadn't had sex in six years and her boyfriend had just broken up with her because she couldn't go all the way. Evan used sex as a way to run for a past that seemed to haunt him. But when they run into each other at the ...more

Danielle goes on a vacation to help heal a broken heart. To her surprise, she meets the most delicious male actor, Evan Weston. And boy does he help her get over her ex.

I found this story to be quite amusing and sexy... Much more than I thought it was going to be based on the cover.

Evan is sexy and hot and I absolutely loved him... Although at times I felt like there might be something going on behind the scenes, but maybe

Last Resort by Kate Roth is a story that will have you begging for more. No joke! I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy to review, and needless to say on my fight home from Park City I finished it. I do have to say that I thought if this dude beside me looks at my kindle he might blush!

This story is one of fear, anticipation, and finally letting go of what has been haunting Dani for six years. No sex! What happens when someone out of a "fairytale" crosses her path? You get one of the hottest

Every time I pick up Kate's book I get blown away. Each has it's own style and to couples are just fantastic. I love it.

This book is a must read don't want to put down. Get ready to pant, sigh and moan over these scenes. Evan is just sex on a stick and considerate to boot. Package deal ladies. I swear I caught myself on google a few times searching for a desire resort thinking maybe this is my way to find me an Evan. Lol

Hey, that was unexpected! There is another book to come and we are left a little bit hanging...

Really enjoyed the story; the coupling was steamy and the location sounded perfect. In fact sign me up for the resort, please. I just hope there is not a long wait until the next book as I am invested in these two and need to know what happens next ...

Back to your writing Ms Roth, and press publish as soon as possible!

You have got to be shitting me? Alright Kate has a price on her head until I get book 2. No partying, drinks, or fun until she is out of the writing cave. To say this book was not HOT with a deeper meaning than just sex would be an understatement. Dani had her reasons for vacationing at Desire Resort and Spa but Evan is a mystery I so need to solve.

The romance and worship is what most "women" need and if it is not there then the arousal will not be there. Evan showed it in spades and broke throu

Oh my...excuse my while I go fan myself. I'm in love!

The problem is I'm not sure who I love more! What can I say? Kate Roth blew me away with this one! Evan Weston is Hollywood's leading man but he's a little lost in his personal life. He's dreamy and sure of himself. Danielle has issues with intimacy but she'd spunky and fun. Both characters were so easy to love and watching their story unfold had me on the edge of my seat.

A good start!!! Don't care for this style of ending, but being that there are two books, I figured it would be something of this nature. I liked how even though Evan was a ridiculously famous actor, it wasn't shoved in your face every second. Therefore, it was just as easy to forget he was famous like Dani did. ...more

It just goes to show that sometimes a girl just needs "the right" guy to bring out her "true" self.

Curious to see what's in store for Danielle & Evan in Best Laid Plans (book 2).

Danielle Ward has not been lucky with her sex life. She gave up her V-card in high school to an impatient and horny teenager, which left her feeling underwhelmed, nervous and with increased anxiety about ever doing it again. Fast forward to the current, when she's just been dumped by her current boyfriend because he was sick and tired of waiting for her to be "ready" for sex, even after waiting just over nine months. Her best friend, Georgia, does the only thing she knows to do: gets her drunk o ...more

“I've been with men who I didn't have feelings for and the sex was good. But the best sex of my life has been with my husband. Sex is about more than just bodies fittin' together, honey. Sure, anybody can do it. At a place like this, some people don't even get past introductions before they're falling into bed. Chances are, more than a heapin' handful of people on the planet could give you a good one with some sweet talk and a little gusto. But great sex, the really amazing stuff, in my opinion, is based on trust. If you trust someone, you can be vulnerable without being scared and if you can be vulnerable, you can open yourself up to experience things you never could've with someone that you had apprehension about. Sex without feelings is possible, of course. It's rampant even. But sex with feelings? Honey, that's the stuff that'll send you to the moon and back.” 1 likes
