I got the book ‘Last Call’ by Jennifer Schmidt when I was on the verge of taking a break from reading because of reading book after book of disappointments. Imagine my relief and happiness when I reached the last page of ‘Last Call’ and didn’t feel disappointed.
I admire how Miss Jennifer Schmidt gave the two main protagonists the chemistry that they share. Novalee and Dean just make you melt with their romance. I love their interactions because it’s funny, giddy and at times emotional. I also loved the way Miss Jennifer wrote the friendship of Novalee and Cali, they’re so fun to read. The book was written in Novalee’s and Dean’s points of view. I was amazed at how Miss Jennifer Schmidt maintained the air of mystery it had on the beginning, making me as a reader more curious to find out what Novalee and Dean went through that made them who they were, and thus making the read a pleasure. Miss Jennifer Schmidt has the right instinct on when to reveal what need to be revealed on the right time and pace of the story.
I will be honest, when I first read the book blurb, I thought it was another one of those cliché stories. You know, those girl-took-a-vacation-in-LasVegas-got-drunk-then-waking-up-with-a-massive-hangover-and-married-to-a-complete-stranger kind of cliché. I thought it was like that, but boy! I was so wrong! I mean, it did happen in the book but do you know how hard it is to make a cliché plot different and exciting? Miss Jennifer Schmidt succeeded in making a cliché plot into something more. The book owned me at the very first page. ‘Last Call’ has the mixed elements of a good book. It was fun, witty, emotional and melt-worthy! If you’re looking for a feel good romance then you wouldn’t want to miss this one!
