Review: Love at Last
Authors: J.H. Croix
Series: Last Frontier Lodge #2
“Garrett Hamilton is the quintessential ladies man, a sexy, wealthy corporate lawyer whose work keeps him far too busy to think about romance. Yet, he’s lost his drive to win cases and finds himself hopping on a plane to visit his brother at Last Frontier Lodge in Alaska. Delia Peters is a single mother who learned the hard way that lust often doesn’t translate to love. She figures life is good enough if she can pay the bills. Love is the stuff of dreams, not real life.
Garrett has spent so many years driven almost entirely by his work that he’s at loose ends. He’s hoping an unplanned escape will refresh and renew him. He didn’t count on Delia nearly bringing him to his knees with her unassuming beauty. One kiss and he’s lost. A man whose career was built on his ability to spin any situation to his advantage finds himself stumbling when faced with a woman whose mere presence rattles his control.
Delia is finally finding some stability with a new job as the chef at the local ski lodge. She’s so accustomed to the busy pace of single motherhood that the thought of romance hasn’t crossed her mind in years. She’s entirely unprepared for the scorching hot attraction between her and Garrett. One kiss sends her reeling…and wanting more than she ever imagined.
Delia and Garrett can’t deny the depth of desire that simmers between them. Falling in love wasn’t in the plans for either of them. Garrett is everything Delia dreamed of and more. Delia touches places in Garrett’s heart that he hadn’t known existed. Can Delia learn to trust in love? Can Garrett get out of his own way long enough to show Delia how much she matters?
*All novels in this series are full-length standalone novels with an HEA.”
Although I preferred the first in the series a little better, I enjoyed watching Delia find true love. Who doesn’t love a good HEA? (Okay, probably lots of people…then this is not for you.)
Thoughts on the characters:
Delia – I loved how down-to-earth she was and how she made sacrifices for her child. I thought her worries, motives, and needs were clear and stayed true to her character. I didn’t however care for how her love for her child wasn’t expanded on. It made her feel as if love was more important than her child (with the exception of one or two scenes where she is the mom that she is described as).
Garrett – I didn’t care for him all that much. He seemed to find change far too easily, but it was nice to watch him love on Delia and become a better human.
The plot was fun, albeit less dramatic and mysterious than the past book. It’s a nice fireside read in the middle of winter.
ALSO. ALASKA SETTING – which doesn’t really play into this one much at all, except that I love that it is there.
I think the build up for the next book was worth it, I cant wait to watch Garrett’s twin sister figure out she’s in love!
