Last Call (Cocktail #4.5) by Alice Clayton

  Simon and Caroline’s book #2.5 | Cocktail #4.5


From New York Times & USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton, known for her “deliciously addictive” (The Book Vixen) novels, this Cocktail series novella reunites readers with Caroline and Simon from the wildly successful Wallbanger.

Simon and Caroline are back for another round of baking, banging, and big life changes. Settling in, but never settling down, Caroline has finally struck a balance between the professional and the personal. As one of the top interior designers in San Francisco, she travels all over Northern California between nook time with Simon.

Perpetual globetrotter Simon has cut his frequent flyer miles in half over the last year, preferring to balance his professional and personal life, as well.

The next step in their lives seems preordained—toasts, veils, and the aisle of rose petals. But when an accident on a photo shoot in Southeast Asia brings Caroline the most terrifying phone call she could ever imagine, she has to ask whether “till death do us part” is a more realistic prospect than faces most couples.

It’s been a grand adventure, and Caroline and Simon wouldn’t go out without the best surprise ending ever. One part sexy, one part laughter, a dash of exotic locales, and one pink nightie, mixed with passion, and you’ve got Last Call. Served with a side of Clive.


5 out of 5 stars

I'm just so freaking happy! The best Wallbanging happily-ever-after I could have asked for!

Simon and Caroline are back and oh goodness, I love them so! They have the best chemistry and banter ever. I love their funny and sexy (oh the sexy!). There was a nice amount of hotness mixed in. Simon and Caroline sure do know how to do schmexy! ;-)

All their friends were included in this story as well as a few other Cocktail series connections and I loved how they all intertwined. I loved how past stories were woven in and finding out everyone's details about where they are now and what’s next for them was really fun. I adore how things wrapped up with Mimi and Ryan and Sophia and Neal too. I was pretty much smiling for the beginning!

I was excited the entire time about what would happen next. There was a bit of turmoil and emotion mixed in, just the right amount of drama! I thought there was a great build to all of it. The story had a nice balance between the entertaining fun times and the heartfelt ones. 

Beautiful ending! I got all teary eyed and ridiculously sappy! And the epilogue, bring it home Clive! It was fantastic… I seriously think Clive needs his own novella.

I thought this was a wonderful conclusion to the lives of Simon and Caroline and I am just behind thrilled with how everything played out. I might have clapped at the very, very end! Seriously, so happy! Thank you Alice Clayton for another awesome story!
