5 Second look at The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise
A Quick Summary
Rebecca is a news reporter hoping to move passed reporting on fluff pieces like beauty pageants and into the chair of the anchor’s desk. Cade the ex-NFL turned sport anchor is asked to weigh in on her ability and agrees that she shouldn’t get the promotion.
War is waged and the sides have been choose but one night with drag queens and drinks had them hooking up and Cade has to prove that he isn’t the guy that Rebecca thinks he is.
Just when Rebecca believes in him lies are discovered and you know the drill.
My Take on the Book :
I’m torn about this book. I liked it. I liked the plot (though I’ve seen is before), I liked Rebecca, I liked Cade. But something just didn’t fit right. It’s funny and nice and entertaining and nothing that sticks with me afterward.
The Last Guy Blurb
The first rule of office romance is don’t do it—especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.
But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.
Sex in his office…
Sex in the on-set kitchen…
Sex in the supply closet…
She can’t stop thinking about the former NFL quarterback and how perfect he’d look between her sheets—except he’s an arrogant jerk with a huge… ego.
He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.
Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance—until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.
It’s just a hook-up, she says.
When can we do it again? he says.
With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.
My Review of The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise
Rebecca Fieldstone is 28. She’s been trying to get the news anchor spot at the top Houston TV station for years. And now she’s almost too old. Botox was mentioned!!! They want to move her behind the camera – to production! Her boss doesn’t like her – he likes the fresh-out-of-college 23-year-old, size zero girl.
Cade is the new sports anchor. He likes her. She likes him. They are amazing together in bed and out. But both don’t want anything serious. And a relationship between them could destroy her career completely. Also there’s his horrible and clinging ex and Rebecca’s jealousy and so many other things standing in the way.
With a bit of drama and excitement. LOTS of sexy moments and cute moments. I personally don’t need quiet that many sexy times.
Cade is a sweet guy. He doesn’t want another long-term thing after his ex left him for someone else. But the more time he spends with this frustrating reporter woman – the more he changes his mind about what he wants.
All Rebecca ever wanted this news anchor job. But suddenly everything seems to fall apart, and Cade is the only real thing in her life….but she doesn’t trust easily…
Of course we have some of those – in most romances unavoidable – unnecessary drama moments in here too. I don’t really like those. You know the ones? Where there’s a lie or a not-telling-the-other-everything or a misunderstanding. Things like that. We fight, break up, And get back together at the end. Parts of the plot are predictable and laced than unnecessary drama.
Another thing I didn’t love was the mention of sooo many ‘pop-culture’ things. Things/shows I have never heard of watched. Like the Kardashians and the Drag Race and The Office. That was a bit too much!
