The Last Plus One was a fun, sweet, funny and heartwarming read.


I really enjoyed each couple's story.
The characters were fun, complex, sweet, passionate and very relatable.
My attention was held from the first page until the last. Each story blended in well together and I ended up reading The Last Plus One in one afternoon, I just didn't want to put it down.


The Last Plus One was a well written contemporary romance, all three novella's were entertaining, enchanting and romantic. I highly r

Reviewer's note: So far I've only read the Alexandra Haughton story as I got it as an eARC.

BRINGING HOME THE BOSS by Alexandra Haughton

First off I need to come clean and admit I signed up for the eARC of this novella despite no longer officially reviewing. I announced on Twitter I'd pre-ordered the anthology it is part of and thought that was that. Then I found the open tab with the sign-up form in the browser on my phone and before I knew it, I had it filled out (and was all like WHAT? WHAT HA

What is better than one story? Three stories from different authors in one book, all connected with one wedding and 3 couples to be.
We have Maggie and Cruz's story, Ashton and Hawk and Claire with Tom.
It is interesting to read about this slow burning romances that will turn friends to lovers and in one case, to give a second chance.
Just perfect read for this upcoming period of the year, and oh yeah, prepare yourself for reading in one sitting or laying on the beach, because it will grab you and

My 1st time reading all 3 of these authors and I truly enjoyed their style.

This book is 3 novellas from each author that combined together smoothly.

I liked how all the characters were developed into a funny, contemporary romance that kept me entertained. 

There is plenty of love, humor, and good ole sweet romance that I have missed reading without the smut.

This book reminded me of  the kind of books I started reading back in my High school days.   Sweet

Favorite Quotes:

Maggie's voice shook. So much for buckling up those emotions. She just spilled them out. Like upending your purse in public with tampons and stray pens and that weird stress ball you picked up at a conference going everywhere, it was just as mortifying.

There was little time to ponder this change in dynamic. Soon, he kissed the thoughts right out of her brain. They were all floating up there, on the ceiling, just waiting for her to gather them back up again. But they could wait.

I enjoyed these three stories that all take place over the course of the same few days leading up to a wedding. The couple getting married is connected in some way to at least one of the main characters in each story. The bride and groom appear here and there, but they're not really the focus here. I pretty much felt as though I'd spent about a week at the wedding of two distant acquaintances with their friends who I got to know so much better. The stories are mostly clean, only one couple has s ...more

This book was based on an interesting plot device - three different authors wrote three different storylines with each one having a different primary duo as the leads and mutual love interests; yet, all three stories were basically connected because they each involved and mentioned the same characters who are all attending and taking part in a lavish wedding set in Bal Harbor, Maine. I read and enjoyed all three of the stories; but, since author Lindsay Emory was the one who offered me the ARC c ...more

Bring on wedding season!

How three wonderful authors from Texas perfectly captured the New England elite blows my mind. This book was great. Perfect for the beach/wedding season. All three stories blended smoothly and one might have guessed that they were written by the same author if not paying attention. Excellent story and character development. I must say, I've got questions about a couple of characters - could there be a follow up in the works? (please!!)

I love the idea behind The Last Plus One--one wedding, three "couples" who aren't really, but they will be by the end of the weekend. Two are friends-to-lovers stories (one with a touch of sleeping with the boss thrown in for fun) and the last one is a second chance romance. Add to that the fact that it all takes place at one of my favorite places in the world (Maine, in and near Bar Harbor--we spent our honeymoon camping at Acadia National Park, that's how much I love it!) and there's puppies i ...more

When long-time friends head to the wedding of the season as each other’s “plus one” guests, you just know that romance is in the air. The Last Plus One is an anthology of three friends-to-lovers romances. The twist is that each story is set at the same wedding extravaganza but involving different people in the wedding.

In Bring Home the Boss by Alexandra Houghton, Cruz all but forces his work partner and best friend, Maggie, to allow him to be her plus one when she returns to Virtue Cove for her
