I am so disappointed this is the last book in the series, I was absolutely desperate for a story between Skye and Caleb but alas this does not seem to be although Erika has teased us with snippets of both of these characters through the Vegas Heat series. I would also liked to have seen a little more of the previous characters featured in the story as a way of providing a sense of closure. Instead I am left yearning to learn more - probably a good way for an author to know they have created

I kind of finished this a couple of days ago but as it isn’t entirely for me it was hard to figure out what to write in my review.

This is just not my cuppa and I would like to add that I am in the minority here. I usually know my taste in books but sometimes I just want to try something new. It can either be epic or in this case not so much.

There is a lot of positive aspects to the book. I do consider the book to be well written. The characters are in-depth and complex although I did

Valerie and Chase are alike in many ways. The most obvious way is distancing themselves from situations and people, as a means to protect the secrets that they carry. What neither realizes is the differences that keep them apart, are precisely what makes them unstoppable together. Last Chance is a tale full of twists that puzzle, thrill and touch in the most enthralling of ways. A real showstopper.

The third book in this series is hot and sexy and full of suspense and intrigue. Of course there is lots of action between Valerie and Chase!! He is looking to have her in his bed and she is looking to keep far away from him. When business throws them together, their feelings simmer to the top and they can't deny them anymore.

I couldn't put this book down once I started it. It took them time to finally express their love for each other but it was worth the ride to see them get to that point!

Last Chance is the third book in Erika Wilde’s Vegas Heat series. I truly love this series, and the third book is the best one for me thus far. Another major plus is that the first three books release every seven days within three weeks. Not only do I get a lot of story about interesting characters, the close release dates allow me to stay connected with these characters.

Last Chance starts a little differently from the first two books in that the job assigned by TRG (The Reliance Group) is

Sadly we have come to the end. Or at least that's what I hear for now. Hopefully, the author will change her mind. There are so many more stories in TRG pool of staff. So much potential for happily ever after...or naughty next night.

Before I turn this into a eulogy, Last Chance is the third and final of this series. It's Valerie's story. It's a slight bit para added to your normal. Huh, you say? If you have read the series you know Valerie is psychic, what you don't know will fill this book. (I

While all the Vegas Heat books were well done, this is my favorite. It is the last in the series, but could be read as a stand-alone. The couples in books one and two are in this story at the wedding.
Valerie is a member of the Reliant group she is psychic with both premonition and body contact information. For months she has been dreaming about a lover who will be her soul mate, though her past has her afraid of that emotional connection.

I very much enjoyed this third (and I hope not last) installment in the Vegas Heat series. This story follows Chase and Valerie as they go on a treasure hunt for the missing piece to Al Capone's famous walking stick. With Valerie being a clairvoyant, and Chase having psychometric abilities, there is a paranormal element to this book, but nothing that detracts from the action or love story - if anything it adds another dimension to their relationship. There was lots of action, romance, intrigue, ...more

I was a bit surprised that Last Chance, had a paranormal aspect to the book, compared to the first two books in the Vegas Heat Series, but I was not disappointed non the less. I loved Chase and Valerie (who has psychic capabilities). This book had a little bit of everything, action, suspense and definately romance. Sparks sure do fly, and I say that almost literally because anytime Chance (who also has a psychic ability) and Valerie touch, their psychic abilities seem to sizzle and spark. I was ...more

Ooh what a fun and sexy story this one was. First off, I guess you can kind of label Last Chance as a light paranormal romance because Valerie, the heroine, is psychic. And when she meets Chase, ooh boy, the sparks totally flew and almost short circuit my kindle. I loved how their relationship developed and the adventure they went on. There's a little bit of suspense and some action but there was a whole lot of loving going on too. I don't know what else to add except that this really was a fun ...more

Valerie and Chase are so scorching hot together. They have electric current sizzling between them. This a mix of sexy, suspense and paranormal all rolled into one fantastic read. Chase and Valerie both have a large dose of guilt for things that happened when they were children. This book was released years ago. Erika Wilde revamped this book and it's now a rerelease. The writing of this book was subperb. I enjoyed it immensely.

Valerie and Chase made quite the intriguing couple. After reading the first two books in this series, we already know about Valerie's abilities, but we learn she might not be the only one. The sparks that fly between her and Chase are super hot and undeniable. The storyline was different and kept me interested until the very end.

This book is a republished version of an older series, but I truly hope that Ms. Wilde revisits this series and gives us more books from The Reliance Group.

4.5 Stars - Valerie finally found her man! From the moment Valerie and Chase touched, I was intrigued. Erika always gives us her all in terms of the characters emotions and connection, but there was so much more between this pair. While this book wasn't flooded with sex, I could sense their need and passion through a single touch or thought. Valerie's psychic abilities heightened the sensual pleasure that she experienced whenever she was near Chase. I couldn't wait for them to discover what awai ...more

Last Chance is Book #3 in the Vegas Heat series. There are related characters in the series, but you do not need to read the first two books to follow the storyline.

The story of Chase and Valerie is definitely the most original plot of the three books in the series. The two embark on a treasure hunting journey together while using their psychic abilities. They have been used by loved ones in the past for their special talents, so they are leery of trusting anyone and becoming emotionally involve

I loved Valerie. I loved how complex of a character she was, getting to explore her depths was fascinating. She's gifted, which adds a unique twist to this book. It was a dif

Valerie is the executive casino hostess for The Onyx, is a member of The Reliance Group, and is also a clairvoyant, able to read people's emotions by touching them, sometimes even seeing visions. She has been called into her boss's office for an assignment with TRG - one where her clairvoyance will be a big help.

Erika Wilde has been an author I've read from time to time though I don't think I've read her by herself...but alas this time I did, taking a chance on this series that sounded amazing, hot and suspenseful.... And good news! All three of these books were perfect and mesmerizing.

Last Chance is Erika Wilde's book 3 in the Vegas Heat series. You can also read it as a standalone, but I recommend to start with book one. You will get the back story for some of the characters that appear in Last Chance. This book has a bit of paranormal that will make it stand out from the rest. I don't read much Paranormal Romance books, but with this book it did not go over board with the abilities the characters have.

I read this straight off the back of finishing the second book and I think that might have been a mistake because while I enjoyed this, please don’t get me wrong this is a terrific book, I think I was still emotionally caught up in the previous story, so I think that meant it took me longer to connect with Chase and Valerie.
I liked the fact that the couples from the last story were in this book too but once I got into the story what I totally fell for was the fact that Valerie was psychic. I was

I was a little disappointed by this book. While I really enjoyed the second book in this series with its character development, describing of the scenery and the lovable characters, I found this one lacking. The characters stood still. I had the impression none of them even wanted to develop. They were stuck in their ways and obviously too stubborn to do something against it or work to reach happiness. In the end they adjusted a little, but not in

Squeeeee! I loved loved loved this one! Valerie and Chase were perfect for one another and literally meant to be. Throw in a race to find treasure and touch of psychic powers and Wilde has created an un-put-down-able read. There was a lot going on with this one. On the surface, Valerie was assigned to help Chase find a lost artifact of Al Capone's and there's a lot that comes with that, including an old rival and an old flame working together
