CLICK TO PURCHASE!Seriously smart Aric Christenson is determined to find a solution to his problem in the lab. He is down to the wire to finding a cure for the disease fighting for possession of him. No desire for relationships, friends or fun-his entire life is consumed to this one particular thing. Well that is until a chance encounter with college jock, Stu Hamilton leaves him breathless as longing and desire runs rampant through his veins. Secrets are simmering between both as they find themselves drawn to one another even as danger circles Aric, getting ever closer. Can Aric trust Stu to protect him even as he doubts his own heart?

LAST CHANCE is a wild ride from start to finish. We got vampires, slayers, misconceptions and desire all wrapped up with a boy. Can this “nerd” find the strength to trust the one person who gives him hope for his own happily ever after? I have to admit, this author sucked me in from the beginning. Who doesn’t like a sexy smart guy and a hot athletic guy in the same story? I sure did especially as Stu and Alric’s personalities start to shine forth as they dodged danger, brotherly concern and their own vulnerabilities. It was a fast paced ride from start to finish and I loved every minute of it. This is truly an author who knows her characters and lets them shine within the story on their own.

Meet Alric, a smart “nerd” who is determined to find a cure for his almost vampirism before he fully turns and time is running out. Not anticipating meeting Stu Hamilton, Alric finds his life turned inside out as he tries to stay one step ahead of the vampire who is stalking him and his growing feelings for the one man who can just as easily break his heart as heal it. Stu is the sterotypical jock-seemingly a player among women as well as on the field. These two are polar opposites but the author takes that, turns it so both are the perfect half to the other’s heart and soul. I loved the way this author kept the secrets between the two main characters simmering, slowly coming out in the open. It made the suspense much more enjoyable when the revealing came about. Add in some intriguing characters that helped keep the storyline and an ending that leaves you wishing for another book, LAST CHANCE delivers more than I ever anticipated.

Ms. Lyn is a wonderful author who captures her readers’ imagination from the first page to the last. With the right touch of mystery, romance and passion, this is an author who knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat, eager to know more. I am hoping she revisits in the future Stu, Alric and their friends/family as some questions were not answered in the end and it leaves you hanging a bit. LAST CHANCE is a wonderful, well written story that will appeal to the reader on many levels. With each book Ms. Lyn writes, she creates characters that you can call friends and delivers countless hours of reading entertainment. I am eager to see what else this author has to offer in the future for my reading enjoyment.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
