Last Call by Nancy Stopper is a companion novella to the contemporary romance Oak Grove series. Carla Daniels is working as a bartender in a local bar when John “Butch” Daniels comes in after returning to town. Carla has sworn off bikers after her ex treated her bad so she is wary of the new guy until she finds he didn't admit to the truth, that he is really doctor. This one is just one of those that didn't seem to be for me from the start, just couldn't find myself really caring about this coup ...more

Having read the official first book of the Oak Grove Series, I decided to go back and read the prequel, Last Call. Now I'm wishing I didn't, because this novella was the epitome of what I don't like about instalove stories.

For starters, I had a hard time feeling anything for either of these characters. They both had fairly sympathetic histories and the resulting damaged baggage. But none of it was developed well at all, which made it hard to care much about them. Sometimes I can buy the "love at

This was a very good book. Enjoyed it thoroughly. I would have liked less of the steamy sex parts as my imagination could have probably figured a lot of that out with having to read every minute of it. The best part of the book was the storyline. It was about a woman Carla who has never been able to count on anyone. Her father left before she was even born. Her Mother didn't pay her much attention was more interested in trying to find a man. The idea about the Mother is that she felt her daughte ...more

A sweet romance of love and hope!

Last Call is a sweet and charming love story. It is an inspiring story full of romance, passion and emotion. No matter how good of a job you do or how hard you try to do your best, sometimes it just can’t change the outcome. Sadly, there are bad things that happen to good people but the trials and pains can create a stronger person within. With the help of Carla, Butch starts to unravel the past and starts to heal from what he sees as his fault. The love and und

I have read several of the other books in this series and really enjoyed them. This book I was a little disappointed in because I felt I was only reading about their sex life. There wasn’t a lot of storyline in it and yet there could have been. The story was about Carla and how she had a horrible early years and felt people and men always left her The Butch had his own demons that he was trying to run away from. When the two met sparks were felt and the first night they are in bed already. The s ...more

Great read, wish it was longer!

This was my first read from this author but now I want to continue the series! I like the authors writing style. In a short story, she managed to give the characters life and get you invested in this cute but hot love story. I didn't feel that I missed anything and it wasn't an Insta-love thing but more of an instant connection. Other characters were introduced to continue the series but it didn't take anything away from Butch or Carla, just made me want to get the

Nancy Stopper writes in the romances genre. Last Call: A Small-Town Romance (Oak Grove... fits nicely in this genre. It's well written. There is sexual tension throughout the book. The reader is being asked, "What is keeping Butch and Carla apart? They have a strong attraction for each other. Last Call is a great read, and I recommend it.
Butch and Carla first fell in love during a snow storm. As the blizzard gets worse, their love heats up during the night.

I really enjoyed "Last Call" by Nancy Stopper. This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last. This is a prequel novella to the Oak Grove series and it really set up the series and got me hooked on all the characters to come in future books. I can't wait to slowly uncover each one with every new book. I would defineatley recommend this series to fans of the contemporary romance genre.
Happy Reading...enjoy!

So good I finished it in one sitting.
Carla takes one last guest before closing up for the night. But when the rugged biker reminds her of every other scumbag she's dated, she is forced to let him stay overnight because of the blizzard. Their connection is instant. Butch can't help his attraction to Carla and, her innocence and vulnerability. He'll have to prove that his is not like Carla's exes is he wants a place in her life.

Prequel novella to the Oak Grove series. A rather predictable but fun short story! If you enjoy small town sizzling romance, you will enjoy this and it will make you want to read the series. They're all stand-alone complete stories with HEA's. Definitely will read the next in this series - this is a good start!

I received a free copy in return for an honest review - this is my honest opinion.

I love a Love at First Site story or at least an attraction at first sight story. Carla has baggage, so no more bad boys. Butch comes in in leather covered with patches, but Carla can't help liking this gorgeous guy that doesn't talk like your normal biker. And Carla soothes Butch's troubled soul.

This short sweet read feels like a much bigger story. I love the characters and their story.

I love the Oak Grove series. Somehow I had read the other books but missed this one and found it on Amazon. Carla had grown up in a not-so-happy place. Butch had his own demons. With a chance meeting on a snowy night proves that everyone deserves their happy ever after. Short story that introduces you so some of the characters in the next stories. Awesome!

Too Steamy- Not Enough Meat On The Bone
Could have been a good story but there was too much graphic sex. Some stories are good enough to just skip over the smut, but this is not one of them. I probably skipped over half of the book and this is a very short book.

This is the first book I have read from this author and it won't be the last. Last Call is a sweet story about a bartender (and her baggage) and an unusual biker haunted by his past. Great characters who help each other heal and find their HEA. This is a quick read and I am now looking forward to the rest of the series about life and love in the small town of Oak Grove.

I voluntarily reviewed this ARC. This is my honest opinion.
