Last Chance #6 - Christy Reece

ISBN 0345517741 (ISBN13: 9780345517746)
primary language: English 
original title: Last Chance (Last Chance Rescue, #6) 
series: Last Chance Rescue #6 
characters: McKenna Sloan, Lucas Kane

McKenna Sloan saved Lucas Kane’s life and then vanished. Lucas moved mountains trying to find her again, and finally McKenna relented—for one fleeting night. The truth is, McKenna’s life is all about the dark, deception-filled world of Last Chance Rescue, and for her, there’s no hope of love or Lucas. But fate, and Lucas’s determination, soon change everything. A kidnapped young woman, a lure to out a killer and the fierce need to bring a criminal to justice combine for one explosive event. For a woman who specializes in staying away from relationships and staying in the heart of danger, this is the most impossible mission of all. Because the odds are deadly, and the passion won’t die.


What an intriguing story! As per usual there's a phenomenal story to every book Christy Reece writes. This novel had me in an allure and turning every page. In the two previous books, I became attached to a character. McKenna Sloan aka Ghost. 

With Mckenna's dark persona, I just knew there was something dreadful that had happened in her past; and why she became the way she is. She’s very secluded, doesn't make friends, keeps to herself and makes no connections with anyone. She gets involved on jobs with the LCR, but leaves without notice. Her story is dark and revealing. I’m so glad she got her own book, there's so much about her and it was written to perfection. There's one thing I'm grateful for, the Perp (every woman’s nightmare) no matter what,couldn't steal her heart. She's an astounding Heroine, flaws and all. I'm still sitting here reeling my thoughts on who I loved more, McKenna or Lucas? I can honestly say, I can't choose. Lucas is every woman’s dreams. Not once did he go all caveman and make Mckenna's decisions for her. My heart just melted for these two characters, they're just downright amazing in every way possible! 

Lucas Kane was abducted and McKenna was the young woman who had rescued him. In the midst of his rescuing, Lucas felt a draw to her. Before he could thank her for all her help, she just ups and disappears. The need to find this remarkable woman put him on a mission to search for her. The first place he goes to is the LCR team. When that fails Lucas hires a private investigator, before he gets any results, McKenna shows up on his doorstep, but only for one reason, to tell Lucas to stop searching for her. There's a strong attraction between these two, but with Mckenna's past she's afraid to show any kind of emotion to anyone for fear they would be endangered. 

8years and McKenna is still living in shadows steering clear from Damon Hughes, the Sickest SOB that was ever created! Her ex-boyfriend not only killed her parents for getting in the way of their relationship but, raped and mutilated her outta anger. He was convicted and sent to jail, then supposedly escaped from prison and died. More like he lived, and is doing everything in his power to regain McKenna back. 

Over Lucas's Dead Body! Lucas gets involved and it's the only time he goes all cavemen and wants to eliminate the threat that McKenna lives with everyday. He sorta, had the right intentions but he gets between Mckenna's op missions to save a girl Damon aka Sickest SOB ever created, abducts a girl he thinks is McKenna. All hell breaks loose, a lot of twist and turns happens in this novel there's so much to but I'll stop here, I don't wanna reveal too much. There's definitely revenge and a sweet but cute HEA! 

McKenna finally surrenders to the man who's stolen her heart and gives her everything she well deserves. Lucas gives her happiness, love, and comfort, something she thought she would never feel again. All Lucas wants is a lifetime of Forever. That is exactly what McKenna intends to give him. A fruitful, of all you can eat desserts! Hehehe... This couple is explicitly wicked and wanton. I loved them too pieces! 

Favorite Quote: 

"She met him in the middle of the room, her expression one of such wonder and beauty that Lucas's already tight chest constricted even more. He closed the distance between them and said huskily, “You came home." Her smile holding every promise he could hope for, she whispered, “Yes." Pulling her into his arms, he asked "For how long?" Her heart in her eyes, she whispered the word Lucas ached to hear: "Forever.

Awe! Be still my beating heart! I loved this book! I hope the next book can live up to this novel or better: D
