Review : The Last Boyfriend (+Spoilers)

The Last Boyfriend

By: J.S. Cooper

“I would rather have a month, or a week, or even a day with you than no time at all….”


Book Synopsis:

Lucky Morgan has had her share of heartbreak. She is devastated when her boyfriend dumps her after sleeping with him and she vows to herself that she won’t be used again. She decides that the next guy she dates and sleeps with, will be her one true love.

Zane Beaumont is the mysterious and snooty guy that comes into her diner every Friday night with a different girl. He’s the type of guy she’s learned to avoid: carefree, fast, handsome, rich, and sarcastic. Unfortunately, she can’t stop thinking about the devilish gleam in his eyes.

When Lucky’s car breaks down one night after a party, it is Zane who comes to her rescue. As Zane attempts to sweep Lucky off of her feet, she soon realizes that nothing is as it seems and that Zane may very well be the guy for whom she changes the rules. That is until she meets Braydon.

My Review:

A bookish friend kept raving about this book and since book 2 is due to be released on the 27th  I decided to bump this one up my list and I am glad  I did.

It’s about a young man who has always been reluctant with relationships. Zane’s hesitancy originated when his mother abandon him and his brother – Noah at a very young age. Since that day their mother left, him and Noah had developed an unbreakable bond which eventually leads to even more heartache for Zane. Based on these occurences he came to the conclusion that love isn’t worth the pain and grief that it can  cause – that is until he meets Lucky.

Every Friday like clockwork  Zane shows up at the restaurant that Lucky waitresses at. He always sits in her  section and is always accompanied by a beautiful woman. Every week it’s a different woman. Her and her friends speculate and Lucky knows that even if she was attracted to him, he was one of those types of men that she needs to stay away from.

Lucky has been hesitant about relationships too. After an appalling comment made by an ex she decided that she no longer wants to be in the dating pool. At 22 she  thinks that no man is worth her time unless he is THE ONE…The Last Boyfriend.

One night her friends pressure her into going to a party. Here she meets Braydon. Surprisingly Zane is at the same party. Lucky immediately catches Braydon’s eye and Zane realizes that he doesn’t like this at all. He decides to pull all the stops and throws all his rules out the window.

To be closer to her, he  provides her with an opportunity that she would be crazy to refuse. They end up spending so much time together that their “friendship” evolves into something more. But with their individual history will both be able to let go of their past and build a lasting relationship?


My thoughts:

I needed a book like this. This one was a light and easy,  heartwarming good read.

I loved how Lucky was so responsible and mature at 22. Despite the loss of her parents she remained strong and resilient. She believed in obtaining an education and was enthusiastic about her chosen major. Even with constant financial problems she remained independent and steadfast.

I also adored Zane. For being a handsome rich guy that had everything going for him you’d think he would be superficial, egotistical and arrogant but he was none of those things. He too was deep and passionate, was caring and gentle and oh so protective of Lucky’s well-being. When he set his mind on something he went for it. I also loved how dedicated and loyal he was towards his brother.

I  thought that the story was smoothly written.  The back story and history spiel made it even that much more  interesting. What I absolutely adored about this book was their proclamation and the HEA. I really can not wait for the next one.

No questions asked…you HAVE to read this swoon worthy book.
