Once Rose Fisher makes a decision, that’s it. End of story.

Like when her ex, Patrick, dumped her out of the blue, then showed up with a super hot, tatted up sex kitten on his arm. Then it was over for good. The end. Poof. Dead to her. Except he was everywhere — down the hall, at the bar with their friends, worming his way into her dreams.

But with their friends paired off,

"She doesn’t want to forgive me. She tolerates me at best."


I have all the feelings from reading a book that I have fallen in love with, And not enough words to be able to tell you how I feel. Not only have I found a series that has got me wrapped up in reading hours but I've also discovered an author that I quite honestly adore. A romance addict like myself can't put a price on finding an author that writes stories that fit you perfectly. Staci Hart has got me s

I freaking LOVE this series. And I love these characters. And I LOVE this authors writing. And I love everything about the Habits crew. I HIGHLY recommend meeting these characters. Each book is so fantastic. From West and Lily in With a Twist, to Maggie and Cooper in Chaser, to Rose and Tricky in Last Call. Each book is unique and perfect and filled with amazingness. Seriously... I LOVE the feeelssss and I just LOVED this. Sigh... FULL REVIEW TO COME!
★★★ 3 Stars ★★★

Patrick 'Tricky' Evans and Rose Fisher were friends before they were lovers, but the intense and unfamiliar feelings that Tricky felt for Rose scared him enough that he ended their short lived relationship. 7 months after he dumped her and they are finally finding a way to be friends again, but Tricky wants it all, he just needs to find a way to convince Rose to trust him again.

My expectations for this book were very high, Patrick and Rose have had a lot of build up throughout th

Last Call is a book that will reel you in. It’s sexy, funny, witty and the characters are so compelling and an absolute joy to read, even in their most frustrating moments.

Patrick is a young man with a dark past. He is a former drug addict who works now as a tattoo artist. One year ago he decided to abruptly end his relationship with Rose because of his insecurities. Despite his strong feelings for her, he was afraid that he wasn’t good enough for her. This hurt Rose a lot. She believed in him a

Before I begin my review, let me just say that I LOVED THE COVER. The cover alone was so gorgeous that I instantly had to read the blurb. And once I read the blurb, I was sold and had to discover why my fellow co-blogger is a fan of Staci Hart.

FULL (spoiler-free) REVIEW:

There's something to be said about an author who can make you laugh out loud with one sentence and sob with the next. Staci Hart knows how to write broken, beautiful characters better than anyone I know, and Last Call wasn't just an example of that talent - it was a full on display. This highly-anticipated conclusion to the Bad Habits series nearly made my highlighti

2.5 - 3 Regret Stars

Patrick 'Tricky' Evans, tattoo artist at one of the trendiest shops in New York, regrets breaking up with Rose...

Rose, bartender and skating enthusiast, regrets destroying their friendship and ever letting Tricky close enough to hurt her...

But living in the same place and ultimately spending more time together due to their respective best friends' budding relationship is causing both of them to rethink what they are to each other.

PSA: Stop what you’re doing and read this series. Not kidding. I’m feeling all kinds of emotions over this story and here’s one of the reasons why:

“Sometimes, you have the whole world in your hands, and you don’t realize it until it’s shattered, left crumbled and sparkling in your palms. That you don’t know that you’ve lived your best days, not until they’re gone. Not until you look back. That day –the day I walked away—was one of my greate

Yesterday I began what can only be described as true magic. After having a rubbish day, an offer came from Staci that I just couldn't refuse, read Last Call early. Of course I jumped at the chance and my day was made.
Twenty four hours later and I'm done. I'm emotionally strung out, in desperate need of a hug, some alcohol and some Ben & Jerry's ice cream. My mind is racing, my heart is pounding, my tears are STILL FALLING and I'm in a turbulent whirlwind of bookworm bliss.

There's a little part of me that wants to yell from the rooftops about this book. About how it made me hurt but laugh. Ache but smile. Cringe but swoon. About how I loved Tricky and Rose. And about how I couldn't help but be drawn into their story, rooting for them to finally, finally get it right.

Wait. No. I lied.

Not a little part, at all. A BIG part.

I've loved each book in this exceptional series. In different ways, and to different degrees, but it's a BIG love. The kind that makes it okay t

Talk about an anticipated release! Last Call has to be one of the books I was looking forward to the most this year. We finally get to know the ins and outs of Rose & Patrick’s story.

I savored this read. It wasn’t until I was about halfway through that I realized that with each chapter end, I would set it down for a minute and then start up again. I wanted it to last as long as possible. Knowing I’d have to say goodbye to the Bad Habits crew once I was finished.

Oh-my-Gahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First of all I feel like I just need to flail around for how excited I was to get my hands on Tricky and Rose….this is TRICKY & ROSE people!!!! I have been d-y-i-n-g to get my hands on them since…oh, about half way thru With a Twist …so to say that I was excited about reading Last Call is like saying Kayne is ‘kind of’ a douche – UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR!

Boy was I scared to start this; mostly because I gave the first book 3 stars (didn't really care about anything tbh and I've realized later that With a Twist was more like 2/2.5 stars for me actually) and the second book was so. so. so. boring that I skimmed the second half just to get through it and dnf (hence the 2 stars). HOWEVERRRRR THIS BOOK I HAD BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG. IT FEATURES MY OTP AND [naturally] I WAS SCARED THAT IT WOULD SHARE THE FATE OF THE PREVIOUS INSTALLMENTS BUT NOPE NOPE ...more
Last Call was the perfect example of what happens when the buildup of a seemingly awesome couple over the course of a series ends up being a huge disappointment. All the chemistry Rose and Patrick seemed to have in With a Twist and Chaser was GONE. Or maybe it was because we were finally able to peel back the layers of the very troublesome history of their past and current relationship and let me just say, it was not pretty or romantic. It was downright toxic, in fact, IN MY OPINION.

Rose and Patrick’s story has been a highly anticipated read of mine ever since they first appeared in With a Twist. Second chance romances are one of my top favorite tropes to read, so Last Call seemed like it would be PERFECT for me. While I enjoyed this book, I can’t say that I loved it like the previous two books in the series. Maybe I had too high expectations, maybe I hyped myself too much about Rose and Tricky, but Last Call didn’t go the wa

Last Call had me in it's clutches, claws sunk deeply into my very being as Staci Hart put me through the wringer.

With a Twist was my breath of fresh air, Chaser was my knock-my pure freaking magic and let's not be mistaken it still is-but Last Call, GAH Last Call is the long awaited finale to a series that has completely and unashamedly engulfed me!

I also wanted to see how Patrick would win her back cause duh everyone ends up together in that serie. I ended up wishing they would not!!

When I picked up With A Twist last year I was smitten with Staci Hart's words, by Chaser I was utterly hooked, the way every emotion bleeds into her stories, the way West and Lilly connected - a connection that comes from years spent together while hiding behind the guise of friendship, to the raw and unyielding chemistry between Maggie and Cooper - the kind you can try to run from but never escape, but what truly intrigued me was tenuous relationship between Rose and Tricky, this

Cheers to Staci Hart! Last Call is the first book by Staci that I’ve read and my first thought, outside of how much I loved the Patrick and Rose, is that I absolutely love her writing. Everything from the style, the dialogue and the intensity of the story completely bowled me over. Last Call is the 3rd book in the Bad Habits series. So, I have a bad habit of reading the latest in a series without having read the earlier book(s). In some cases it takes away from the reading experience. In the cas ...more

Last Call is the third book in the Bad Habits series. This is Rose and Tricky’s story and one that I’ve been waiting for since reading With a Twist. I knew that there was some serious drama that went down and you could just tell that these two were perfect for each other…they just needed that nudge.

Tricky broke Rose’s heart seven months ago because of his own issues. He actually has a lot of baggage per se, he’s a recovering drug addict with some abandonment issues. Unfortunately, Rose’s heart f

I am kicking myself for not reading a Staci Hart book sooner. This book was incredible, it had everything I look for an in a New Adult book, and this is exactly why I fell in love with this genre. What I liked most about her writing was the dialog. The witty conversations between friends almost killed me every time. Usually I love just being a spectator of a story and watching it unfold, but this book really made me want to be apart of this amazing group of characters.

How do I even begin to explain my love for this book?

The story between Tricky and Rose is like the dying embers of a fire. If left alone, it could die away completely, leaving charred remains, or with one small breathe of life, it can become a raging inferno of passion and warmth. My heart had always been a bit broken from the failed first chance between these two. When I started reading LAST CALL, there was a twinge of pain in my heart and I wondered if Staci was going to break it even more. Ev

Last Call is more than a simple book.
Is more than two broken people who find on each other salvation.
Is more than miss someone and being scared to tell them.

Because if I know something is that sometimes we need to let go that past that hold us and live our lives the best we can, but I know... is not easy.

4-4.5 stars. I've been anticipating Rose and Tricky's story for a while and the fact that it would be a second chance romance made it even more exciting. Rose and Tricky were a couple at one point and then Tricky broke it off, followed by hurting Rose even more. From that point on, Rose froze Tricky out. Even though they share the same mutual friends and are neighbors, Rose has built up walls so high, Tricky figured that he burned a bridge that could never be repaired, and has lived to regret it ...more

“So I chose to read about it instead. It’s supremely satisfying when the good guys win and the bad guys lose. When the guy gets the girl and everyone lives happily ever after. Reading is the greatest escape. Where life is unfair, fiction can be perfect. The appeal is infinite, and the reason why I read at least three romance novels a week. If I can’t have it, I may as well imagine it.” 5 likes

Knees: weak.
Cheeks: flushed.
Stomach: flipped.
Eyes: glistening.

And the moment he bent to kiss me was the moment that marked the beginning of the rest of my life.”
