Eva Hanover - a brilliant career, a gorgeous brownstone in Brooklyn, and a sexy husband. Or, at least, she thinks so. In a wink of an eye, Eva's husband leaves her. She loses the brownstone and her career. With only the clothes on her back, she flees cold New York for the sunnier climate of Key Largo.

As Eva puts it, her marriage went south and so does she. Stuck in Key L

Did I seriously pay for this book? I apologize to the author as I could never write a novel but I felt like this was written by a 15 year old! The characters or the story were never developed in my opinion. It went at too fast a pace without ever knowing how the characters felt. The point of view of the characters were changed from one paragraph to the next making it confusing. This story had potential but failed for me. Big fail:(

That's two hours of my life i won't get back.

Derivative cliche riddled and incredulous. There is no character who is believable or a heroine so naiive. Not sure why I bothered to finish it.

Mt mother said that if I couldn't say something nice I shouldn't say anything. I got this book free and that is what it's worth.

This is such a fun read. I was sucked right in. Might be partially because its set in the south and I’m a southern gal. Plus, I love staying in the quaint family owned motels along the coast.

The divorce was tough on Eva and I admired her pluck. She heads to Key Largo and a brand new beginning, buying a worn down little motel and fixing it up.

The author kept the romance real. With Eva just divorced it wasn’t an instant love thing with her contractor, Mike. In fact, the fun thing about it was Eva

Romance is not what I normally prefer to read but this one I liked a lot. After her divorce Eva buys an old, run down motel in Florida and remodels it with the help of her contractor Mike. Will it be a success or is she going to lose all her money? And there might be a future for her and Mike together....

I needed a light read after consuming so many serious and rather depressing books lately, and "Last Chance Motel" was just the thing to lighten the mental load for a while! Eva's marriage ended suddenly after the discovery that her husband had found a younger woman, and that the woman was pregnant. The divorce was acrimonious, but she did get her fair share of the valuable restored Brooklyn brownstone that they had both worked so hard on for years. Impulsively, while on a short vacation to the F ...more

I liked it. I didn't have to think too hard, and I enjoyed following the progress of the project in the story, the tension building up between the main characters and the feature flamingo. ;)
I didn't like that the ex-husband character was able to waltz into the story again on a breeze and that Eva let him. I don't buy it that a strong, smart woman would let a man like that back into her life, no matter how much history they shared. I would have liked to see the author find a better way of creati

Last Chance Motel was a fast paced story. Eve, coming off a bad divorce starts over again at a dilapidated motel that she turns into a beautiful resort. There was a lot of point of view changes throughout the book, which made it a little confusing at first. I look forward to reading more of the series to see how the characters develop and what else happens at the Motel.

This book starts in a way that makes it look like the main story is going to be choosing between two men. As the story continues, a sudden tropical storm keeps escalating and every mistake could be deadly.
I stayed up half the night because I had to find out how it would turn out.

This is a romance that's not very romantic. The alleged hero waffles over whether to make his move or not, and the heroine can't decide whether to finally kick her dirtbag ex to the curb even though she already divorced him. They deserved each other. I was thoroughly exasperated with both of them by the last page.
Dec 02, 2017 rated it it was ok
The story had potential, but had too many holes in the plot, too many things happened with no explanation, too many things were unbelievable. I felt like I was reading a rough draft at times. The story jumped thru some parts of the plot & dragged in other places. I didn’t hate the main characters, but I didn’t feel very interested in them either.

Fun Read

This was a good, fast read. I enjoyed the detail the author used as it helped me see everything so clearly - from the motel, to flamingo sign, to the strength of the hurricane. I will read more from this author.

Hurricane of a Romance

Liked the different twist on the story and the romance. It is good to see more to life than money and smooth sailing. The animals definitely added to the story.

Whew what a start!

Hooray for second chances, especially if they involve an island. This moved along pretty fast. Glad to see there's no triangle game, about as boring as a car chase . I love flamingos, let's see Where that neon takes us next.

A nice easy read but not great continuity. Some major bloopers in there and some real cheesy moments. But I read it over a couple of hours on my treadmill and overall enjoyed the storyline. I've never been to Key Largo but it made me want to, just not in hurricane season.

I liked this story. I thought it would be a heavy read because of how it started with a break up, but surprisingly it was still a happy story. I will read more from this author.

Great second chance story. Eva thought she had everything. A great husband, job, and a chance to fix up an amazing house. Then things went downhill and her husband asks for a divorce. Eva moves on and gets a second chance for romance

It's a great beach read. Interesting story, especially given current hurricane events and my own remodeling struggles. And although the book didn't capture me completely, I did find it to be good escape fiction.

Ok but not well written

I got this e-book for my kindle, I was grateful it was free. The author just wasn’t my taste. The language was simplistic and the plot was predictable.

Great beach/pool/vacation book! Quick read but it made me want to read the rest of the series. Makes me want to visit the keys!

A great love story

Realistic, believable characters. Relatable, due to recent actual hurricane coverage on tv. I found myself feeling the emotions of Eva & Mike.
