The Last Boyfriend/Husband Reviews + Giveaway

The Last Husband
Author: J.S. Cooper
Series: Forever Love #2
Genre: New Adult
Event provided by: Book Crush

Lucky wanted a guy to be her last boyfriend but she never counted on love not being enough. 
Lucky Morgan fantasized about the hot guy from her diner for months. And when he offered her a dream job, she jumped at the chance to get to know him better. 
Zane Beaumont was skeptical about love and guarded his heart. Even though he was falling for Lucky, he was still scared to fully let go. So he makes a decision that may ruin their once chance at happiness.
Both of their lives are turned upside down by some unexpected news and Lucky has to decide, once and for all, if Zane is the guy she wants to spend her forever with.

I licked the last drops of syrup from the corners of my mouth and grinned at Zane. “I can’t believe I’ve never noticed the way you eat before.”

I watched as he put his cutlery down on the plate. “You’re so prim and proper, Miss Emily would be so proud.”

Who’s Miss Emily?” He looked at me in confusion. 

“The etiquette queen, duh.” 
“Oh you mean Emily Post?” 
“I’ve never heard her called Miss Emily before. It must be a Southern thing.” 
“I’m not Southern,” I growled. 
“You’re from the South.” 
“I’m from Florida.” 
“Florida’s the South.” He grinned. “Or do you need a Geography lesson?” 
“I know it’s the South, but we’re not the South like South Carolina and Arkansas. Now they are the South.” 
“What about Alabama and Mississippi?” 
“Well, them as well.” I rolled my eyes at him as if to say Duh
“So all the states in the South are the South aside from Florida?” 
“That’s not what I mean.” 
“So are you telling me I’m not dating a Southern Belle?” 
“I’m telling you that if you’re looking for Scarlett O’Hara, you’re dating the wrong girl.” 

“Did your grandparents live on a plantation? Did they have slaves? Did your mother have a mammy?” Zane cocked his head at me and I reached over and slapped his hand. 
“You’re an idiot, you know that?”

At the beginning of this story, we meet college student, Lucky Morgan. She works at Lou's Burger Joint and attends college full-time while supporting herself. After a very bad breakup and going from boyfriend to boyfriend, Lucky makes a vow to find "The Last Boyfriend." She decides the next guy she dates will be her true love, but then she meets Zane Beaumount. He is everything on her list to avoid. He's also drop-dead gorgeous, filthy rich, and used to getting any woman he wants. He comes into Lou's Burger Joint every Friday with a new girl on his arm. Zane is not looking for a relationship and never wants to get married. He asks Lucky to be his assistant while filming a documentary. Now, Lucky wants Zane. He's unlinke any other man she's ever met, and she knows he won't be easy to persuade because he doesn't give his heart up for anyone. Lucky and Zane's relationship was really confusing at times and a bit rushed in my eyes. I couldn't understand why Zane was so guarded. It all made sense in the end though, and it was a really good story that kept me hooked all the way through.

The Last Husband starts right up where The Last Boyfriend left off. In this book, it's written in dual point of view. This gave me a better idea of Zane's personality. I think it's so fun to read in dual point of view. It made this story all the more fun to read. Through this book, Lucky and Zane are dealt some crazy information. While dealing with the story's drama, the two find their forever love in each other. There were so many unanswered questions in The Last Boyfriend, but they were answered in the sequel.

Let's talk about Zane Beaumont for a moment. We should without a doubt judge these books by their covers, because this cover model is hot and sexy. In the beginning of the story, I thought Zane was a kind of a creep. I wasn't for sure I was going to like him. Then oh my, I fell in love with him. Zane is protective and a bit bossy, but it worked well with Lucky. One minute I wished he was mine, and the next, I wanted to kick him to the curb. After reading the sequel, I have declared that Zane is my new book boyfriend! The cover model is just so hot! Call me, I'm single! *winky face*

Here's some quotes that sealed the deal for me ;-)

"I've never made love to someone with a pussy as sweet as yours, my dear."

"I want to throw you down on the sand and kiss you all over, and then take you from behind. I want to hear you crying out my name to the wind so that the birds can hear."

"There is nothing I wouldn't do to make this relationship work. Nothing I wouldn't give to make this a Forever Love. I want to prove my love to you Lucky. I want the birds in the sky to chirp of my love for you. I want the pygmies in Africa to talk of my love for you. I want the fish in the bottom of the ocean to feel the depths of my love for you."

The Forever Love Series is a fun read and is written amazingly well. Both books are filled with surprises and a little bit of drama that keeps it well balanced. I must say it was a job well done, J.S. Cooper! You have a made a fan out of me!

J. S. Cooper was born in London, England and moved to Florida her last year of high school. After completing law school at the University of Iowa (from the sunshine to cold) she moved to Los Angeles to work for a Literacy non profit as an Americorp Vista. She then moved to New York to study the History of Education at Columbia University and took a job at a workers rights non profit upon graduation. She enjoys long walks on the beach (or short), hot musicians, dogs, reading (duh) and lots of drama filled TV Shows.
