I’m going to be honest here. At first, I DNFd Last Resort. It opened with a long hot sex scene between characters I didn’t know yet, then, after the best sex of her life, Sutton meets her first client after a big promotion, and of course it’s the same guy…only there are 3 of him. Yes. THREE HOT BILLIONAIRE TRIPLETS. My eyes rolled a bit too much and I decided to just move on to book two. As soon as I started On One Condition, I fell in love with it. So I stopped (though it was difficult), and went back to Last Resort by K. Bromberg and gave it another chance.
I’m glad I did. Once I got over the insta-sex and the over-the-top tropeyness (is that a word? Heehee, take off the “tro”-yes, I’m 12). And I got into the meat (haha-did it again) of the story, I actually really enjoyed it.
Callahan is kind of the black sheep; the bad brother. His two brothers took over running their dad’s company, S.I.N. International, and Callahan never really wanted to. All three brothers are struggling in their own way to get over the death of their father.
Sutton just broke up with a controlling asshole, and is excited to get a promotion consulting for S.I.N. International, helping to renovate a resort in the Virgin Islands. That’s when she went out to celebrate, and had an amazing one-nighter with a man without exchanging names. Of course he is the same brother assigned to work with Sutton on the resort in the Virgin Islands.
Callahan makes sure they “accidentally” share a corporate bungalow, and Sutton doesn’t want to look like she slept her way to the top. So begins the push and pull between the two of them. They know they have amazing chemistry. They’ve tasted each other. Can they stay away?
“Everyone Begs. When it’s good enough, you beg,”
- Once we delved into the story, there were a lot of layers to unfold.
- Absolute chemistry.
- Great character growth.
- They both brought out the best in each other.
- Lots of funny and playful banter.
- I really liked getting to know the brothers leading up to their stories.
- Most people will love this, but it started off with a “bang”, quite literally. I didn’t know the characters yet so it just felt like the book would be all sex, no substance.
- 3 hot triplet billionaire brothers? There are less than 600 billionaires in the US. And there are only a few sets of identical triplets born each year. It just felt corny and tropey.
- My biggest problem with Last Resort is that it is so similar to another series I am listening to, even the narrators are the same. That series features 3 real estate developer brothers, and the heroine is hired as a consultant on one of the buildings. I kept confusing them. I’m not saying anyone stole ideas, it’s just that typical of a trope.
You can never go wrong with Stella Hunter and Aaron Shedlock. Their voices conveyed all the emotion and chemistry without ever feeling over acted. I highly recommend the audio unless listening to explicit sex is not your thing.
The Down & Dirty:
My spicy readers will love Last Resort. At first it felt like it was all sex and no story, but when I gave it more of a chance I found there was a lot more substance. I loved the characters and their growth, as well as the banter, but it had a rough start for me. The story is full of common tropes and as I write this review I’m confusing it with another book that is so similar. But still, once I got into Last Resort, I couldn’t put it down.
I’m finishing this review after reading book 2, On One Condition, which I really loved, and I’m so excited now for the 3rd in the series.
