When Beatrix ‘Trix’ Daley loses her twin brother Bo in a tragic accident, she inadvertently gains his best friend, Penn, whether she wants him or not. Penn is the exact opposite of her brother. Obnoxious. Cocky. And out to sleep with as many women as possible. But he knows. He gets it. Because he lost Bo, too.

Penn’s been going out of his way to piss off Trix since he was

I had to take a bit of time before doing a review of this book. At the beginning I was drawn in and completely invested in the story of Penn and Trix. I was thoroughly enjoying the book and when I finally reached the epilogue I was an emotional wreck but happy with the ending. However, the epilogue was not the end of the story, there was a further chapter to the book and that one chapter absolutely killed my enjoyment of this book, it totally ruined it for me and I don't understand why the ...more

Absolutely unbelievable.

I don't feel like 5 stars is enough for this book that took me through so many emotions and so many tears. There is no way to even do this review justice without giving away something that I wasn't expecting.

Beatrix "Trix" Daley's twin Bo died 8 years ago and a part of her still struggles with the loss. At her side is Bo's best friend Penn Cavanaugh, whom she has a weird relationship with. Both have been present in each other's lives for 20 years but they aren't really

Oh my god I couldn't put this book down! It was more of a 4.5 close to 5 star rating but I didn't like the fact that they had to kept reminding us she was deaf. I can even say how hard I was crying at the end, it was just so much at the end. I had to put the book down a few times and just cry for a bit. Wow, just wow

Took me a little bit to get into Trix & Penn's story. In the end, I was a hot crying mess (for me it means the author did an AMAZING job if I'm emotional reading her/his story). It is NOT a predictable love story type book.

Beatrix 'Trix" loses her twin brother, Bo, in a tragic accident when they war 18 years old. Bo's best friend Penn has been someone that Trix has fought with since they were children. Now she is stuck with him, because even though their relationship is contentious, each of them is the only other person who really knows what it was like to lose Bo. As time goes on, they realize that their relationship isn't exactly easy to define and may be more than either of them anticipated or wanted.

This book was a train wreck..... But in the end, aren't all things that destroy us beautiful? Hurricanes cause destruction yet are a sight of such beauty to behold.

This book was tricky in the beginning, as it was a touch boring. Though after one third of the book, I fell for Penn hard. Trix upset me to all ends of the earth with how she held back from loving Penn, until she finally relented.

When she did, love was everywhere. The author made it possible for you to feel it.

But then I reached
DNF @ 55%. Man, I'm ready to get out of this book funk! I couldn't go on. I think I've concluded that I really dislike starting a story when the mcs are already in love (and either know it or don't, but the feelings are there). I need that development of the relationship in order to feel the connection...and that's just it -- I didn't FEEL it, but I was told about it instead. To me there is a major difference between the two, and while it makes me struggle with books -- others might not have an ...more

Get the tissues out ladies. Big ugly cry book here. To the author - thank you but I hate you. :) I was not expecting that.

Full of surprises, the story is told in dual POV mostly between Trix and Penn. They hate each other, but love each other. Makes sense, right? Characters were well developed. Story was very well told and easy to follow. Scenery descriptions are ok. Build up between the two makes sense as they've known each other since childhood.

Beatrix loses her twin brother Bo to a tragic accident. When he passes she gets his obnoxious best friend that is a pain in her butt for the past 20 plus years. Can she deal with him or will she tell him to go?

This book was awesome. I loved every minute of it. I received a ARC for my honest review

95% of the book was pretty good and I would have rated it 4 stars. Towards the end it felt like the author just kept adding drama after drama and then the ending which really put it over the edge. Last 5% was a 1 star for me.

It's so unexpected, it leaves you gutted and breathless, angry, cheated, sad but not sorry you have had read it and had your heart sadistically lambasted.

This read truly was amazing and incredibly heartfelt with a tear jerking twist. It kept me wanting more as the suspense kept sending the story spiraling out of my control making me pick up the pace needing for a shift to happen that when it does chaos sends it spiraling again keeping me on edge playing with my emotions from beginning to end. The chemistry is filled with angst and exciting passionate hot romance. To read this story was emotionally straining and

Have you ever read a book that just stole your breath away? This one did to me. The three musketeers, Bo,Trix and Penn have so much of their lives to live. I felt their pain throughout the book. This author has a gift that few are able to express with words in a story. This story is about love and loss. There are some funny moments and intensely sexy moments. I’m not spoiling anything about this book but just remember that I told you after you finish this book it will take you some time to get ...more

The story follows Trix and Penn and their lives after Bo, her twin brother and his best friend died after being run over by a car. Since Bo was gone they each survived in their own way - she as a nurse who went on stints with Doctors without borders and he as a fireman. But she always comes home to him and he always waits for her. They stay connected through their hurt about Bo's death, or do they? Are there something more and will they have the courage to discover the possibilities. This is a ...more

Trix's brother Bo dies in an accident. His best friend Penn has always looked out for her, even as he does his best to tease and piss her off. This is a very emotional story as their relationship changes, just a roller-coaster - grab the tissues. I enjoyed this book - great characters, easy to read. Right up until the epilogue. And now I'm totally confused.

A story line that grabs the reader's attention and keeps it. Romance, drama, emotions are just some of the feels in this book. No spoilers, here, just don't pass this one up.

While I didn't see the twist coming, nor do I need a HEA, it completely obliterated the book for me. Too much time invested for that kind of ending.

This is the story of Trix and Penn eight years after the loss of Trix’s twin brother, and Penn’s best friend, Bo. Bo was the fulcrum of their Love/ Hate relationship in life and and is the lynch pin of their relationship in death. In the beginning it is easy to see that their relationship is not healthy. It seems obvious that they should have gone their own way many years before and at the death of Bo should not have been enough to keep these two in any kind of relationship. Turns out that is ...more

Well I'm just a big hot mess after reading this! How do you survive when you've lost your brother and best friend? Trix Daley has survived these last years leaning on her dead brother's best friend slowly removing herself from the world. Penn has always loved Trix even when she didn't love herself. Vowing to never cross the line and tell her his true feelings Penn bottles it inside until his love for her becomes unbearable. Can Trix and

'Last Girl' was an unexpected treasure that leaves you questioning everything that you have read. It was an emotional roller coaster of a ride as emotions strongly drive these characters and their choices.

When Trix's twin brother, Bo, was killed part of her died with him and barely surviving. She did, though, inherit Bo's best friend Penn, who has been a rock for her. While they are friends with benefits, Trix feels as though he only tolerates her because of Bo. This couldn't be further from the

By the end of this book my head was spinning, but not in a bad way! It was unique and in my opinion as far from cliche as possible. Seeing the two main characters, Trix and Penn, interacting together allowed me as a reader to learn more about the intricacies of their lives and their pasts which molded them into the characters that I grew to love.

I am a huge fan of the way that the author concluded the book. Although it may not be everyone's cup of tea, I think that it's a refreshing change that

Oh my goodness!!! As much as I hate it when people use the term "all the 'feels'" to describe a book or film that is fraught with emotion, I'm gonna have to sound like a millennial for a second and say THIS BOOK HAD ALL THE FEELS! The journey of Trix and Penn is one I'm not like to forget for some time and I feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon this author--I can't wait to read more by K.S. Thomas.

This book was great-¿ i fell in love with the characters. Penn and Trix were absolutely adorable. Then the last chapter and the epilogue had me hysterical. Then i was happy again. And then the author went too far. She ruined it at the end and that makes me mad. I wish i hadnt read past the happy part. Im not sure why she thought that was a good idea but she should delete it. I suggest you read this book but avoid the epilogue it will leave your heart in pieces.
