I didn't think it was possible to have so much love for a book. Laurelin Paige has completely left me a jumbled mix of every damn emotion. I'm happy/sad...that Emily and Reeve's journey has come to end. But what an AMAZING ending it was!!!!

If you read First Touch, which I really hope you have, then you all know about that infamous ending!!! I think many readers are still suffering from that hangover!! With that ending, it's really hard to review this book without giving anything away. As I alwa

Laurelin Paige is a master of words. When she writes she does it with such seamless precision, it hits you everywhere, in all the feels. Her storytelling is exceptional, impeccable. It rivals some of the best for me. Once again, I find myself in awe of her creative talent, consumed by the way she writes. I'm almost at a loss for words.

This duology is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The execution... It all came togeth

Oh Laurelin, what have you done to me? You've completely wrecked me, my heart is crushed, I'm left devastated and a terrible mess! How we are left hanging in First Touch was absolutely horrible, talk about the worst cliffy on earth. I was left screaming "NOOOO" when I reached the end. I was so unbelievably worried of the outcome in Last Kiss, I didn't know what to expect but I just knew I.DID.NOT.LIKE.AMBER!

A nail-biter of a twisty, thrilling, and touching tale, Last Kiss bleeds angst, pouring passion from the pages straight to your heart and soul. Like a kiss, this story is scorching, sensual, and seductive. Last Kiss is not just a book—it’s the ultimate escape from reality where you are utterly immersed and intoxicated. You are folded into this story so deeply that Last Kiss bleeds into your world, haunts your head, and dances in your dreams. This book becomes you. You are Last Kiss.

Another masterpiece from Laurelin Paige!!! After reading the first book, First touch, I just knew that something big was coming after that huge cliffhanger but the way the story actually unfolded, just blew my mind!

'Last Kiss', the conclusion of Emily and Reeve’s story was intense, thrilling and kept me at the edge of my seat from the beginning until the end. Filled with angst and drama this second installment was (almost) as good as the first. It was intense, sexy, suspenseful and so very addictive and while I didn’t fully love it, I enjoyed it very much.

When I read 'First Touch', it blew me away. Thankfully, I waited to read it until the release of 'Last Kiss' was only weeks away. Otherwise, I'm not sure I could've survived the wait. Needless to say, when this book was released, I was all over it!

After the way the first book ended, I had to know how things would work out for Emily, Reeve and Amber. I can't say that I was surprised by the overall direction that the story went in. However, I was shocked by some of the details that came to light

One of the things I can say, though, is how amazing the ride these characters took me on was.

When Emily Wayborn goes home to visit her mom while on hiatus from her hit TV show, she receives a voicemail from her former best friend, Amber. Though the two were once notorious party girls, they haven't spoken in years. Although the message might sound benign to anyone else, Amber uses a safe word that

I'll try and make this short.

I LOVED 'First Touch' (first book in this duet) so much that it was a tie for book of the year for me in 2015. So 'Last Kiss' quickly became my most anticipated read of 2016. To say I was left feeling underwhelmed would be an understatement.

When I got my hands on an advanced copy of 'Last Kiss' I literally dropped everything because I wanted to find out what happens. So many seeds were planted in book one re: plot. So many players were introduced that had so much pr

Laurelin Paige has an exceptional knack for creating characters that are flawed, broken and that can make you want to do bodily harm to them, but you still can’t help but love them. In the final part of the First & Last Duet: Last Kiss; I think I experienced every emotion one could feel. Sometimes all at once.

There is so much about this book that I want to talk about, but I can’t.

Last Kiss was a suspenseful thrill ride from start to finish. This is my favorite Paige series to date and I don’t

Last Kiss is the concluding novel in what has been such thrilling series to read. When we last left these characters, Amber was found to be alive. Emily and Reeve had finally reached a point in their relationship where they can actually call it one when Amber comes back to shake things up. Last Kiss mainly revolves around piecing together what happened to the Wicked Witch, Emily pushing Reeve away when she really wants him, and the Wicked Witch manipulating Emily.

I'm always super anxious going into the second book of a series after falling in love with the first book that ended with a serious cliffhanger. You just never know if the rest of the story will live up to the expectations that you've created in your head while you've been not so patiently waiting to find out what happens next.

Without a doubt, Laurelin Paige has delivered an absolutely first class suspenseful story which hooks you in from the very first page and makes you want to keep reading until the very last.

Carrying on from the moment First Touch ended, Emily Wayborn is left feeling confused as to where she fits into Reeve's life now that Amber is back.

With the three of them living in the same house, and the two women in danger from Reeve's connections to the Greek Mafia, she is learning a lot a

With the way that First Touch ends, I was anticipating Last Kiss because everything would be different now, a true test. Just when Reeve and Emily were turning a corner, where the walls were beginning to come down and to develop trust, the circumstances change in the most challenging of ways. And I loved this new element because it was guaranteed to fuel so many emotions while reading - angst, love, hate, heartbreak, doubt, and devotion.

Last Kiss is the second and last installment in the contemporary, erotic First and Last duology. It focuses on the breathtaking relationship between Emily and Reeve which is equaled by the heartbreaking reality of the past for both of our leading characters.

I find it really difficult to talk about the certain book because there are lots of potentially spoilery bits. I’ll try very hard to not give away so much of the book that it would make reading it pointless.

Reading Last Kiss was like holding your breath underwater. You wanted to know how long you could last without coming up for air - and let me tell you, I tested my capacity. If you thought First Touch had you holding on to your seat, Last Kiss has you gasping at every corner while the words sunk into your soul.

By far one of the most mind thrilling books I've read, this series is a dark erotic thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end. I have to admit though, while Amber drove me absolu

Where to begin to explain how this book was one of my most anticipated read of the year and now one big disappointment? I'm sad because I was waiting for the end of Reeve & Emily's story so much. When you have a duet and when you read the beginning months ago, you usually expect to need a quick reminder to catch up on the story,... But it wasn't the case here for me. I remember vividly every aspect of First Kiss. I was so hooked on their story I would have given anything to get this book sooner.

After finishing First Touch I was left with anxiety for Reeve and Emily, knowing that the return of Amber would be a major disruption of the budding and fragile relationship these two had started to build. And God, she was. This book had my stomach in a knot

After reading First Touch I couldn’t wait for the second one and was very glad I got approved for the ARC ...

How do you choose between the two people you belong to? How do you choose between love and a promise made in the past?

I loved this book but I had a little bit a problem that Emily didn’t really choose for her man and wanted to give everything up for her ‘friend’ Amber. I wante

After this HUGE Cliffy in book #1 we're finally back with Emily and Reeve - and Amber too. Yup, Amber has finally been found and she's really badly hurt. This greek human traffic mafia guy (aka Reeve's uncle) beat her up and left her for dead. But Emily's PI Joe found her and brought her to the Ranch.

And poor Emily is so happy to have her back, but she's also horribly afraid of what Reeve might think. He knows who she is to Amber, has probably known all along, and Emily has no idea how he will r
