Last Resort is my 1st read from Jill Sanders, I have had this sitting in my Kindle for quite a while and decided to give it a go. Glad I did, it was a sweet read with the HEA I needed. My only concern, and I use that term loosely, is that although I enjoyed the story itself it just didn’t blow my mind. This should not put you off reading it, I guess I just wanted that little bit more, that pop in my stomach.

For main character, Cassey Grayton life hasn’t always been perfect. As an abused child, hidden, beaten and mistreated , being saved by her guardian angel and starting her new life that the Grayton’s was a dream come true. With a sister , 3 brothers and loving parents, life was finally happy for her. Now fifteen years later, she is owner of her own boardwalk restaurant. A lit of time, sweat and tears are seeing it open and flourish. Everything is perfect until Luke Calloway shows up all hot and gorgeous and wanting to buy her new restaurant. Seething Cassey, all but throws Luke out of her office but not before feelings a fluttering in her heart from this drop dead gorgeous man with the bluest eyes.

Luke has been sent by his father to buy out the boardwalk restaurant, he doesn’t care what he has to do, he just wants it all closed down. As owner of Crystal Shores resort, money is no option and what Jeffery Calloway wants Jeffery gets. Well he is about to have one hell of a fight on his hands with miss Grayton. She is not scared of a fight, and with 3 overbearing brother’s she has plenty of weight on her side.

What neither Cass of Luke expected, was the feelings that were clear towards each other.

This was quite an enjoyable read but it was quite unexpected when Cassey had a fling with her enemy Luke within the first few chapters. I was expecting him to turn into a real b but it was a rather different outcome. Also with his dad changing his views after a heart attack.

Casseys childhood was horrific & im glad she ended up with a loving family & her brothers will be in future books. Maybe also an update on this couple.

HASH(0xaa6b03fc) out of 5 stars A little bit tacky 25 January 2015
By Sandy Milan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read most of this author's books and enjoyed the Pride series more than the Secret series. This one caught my eye because it seemed to be a standalone and I liked the sound of the storyline. The h was an abused child rescued from her situation and placed into a family home. She gains 3 adopted brothers and 1 sister (clearly the start of a new series and the secondary characters sound very interesting). Fast forward 15+ years and she decides to open her own bar and restaurant on the boardwalk in a property owned by her family. It all starts off well and then 2 years later business starts slowing down and she is worried. Enter the H who has been tasked by his father to obtain the h's property because he wants to expand his own hotel operation. The H is threatened with being disinherited if he doesn't succeed. He sees and meets the h after some time after thoroughly investigating her background. Immediately sparks fly and they rapidly engage in a 'sex only' relationship because both of them don't have time for more.

My gripe with this book is the very casual approach to sex but I only discovered this a few pages into the second chapter (after the sample chapter and prologue). I'm going to be honest here and say that if I had read the following: "She'd never been one to deny herself physical pleasures with a good-looking man. Men were easy to come by when you ran one of the largest bar and grills along the beach. They were easy enough to discard as well. She was always quick in her affairs, never letting the relationships fester into something that got out of hand. Usually they only lasted a few weeks before she would get bored and move on.", I probably wouldn't have bought the book. Added to that the main characters have sex the second time they meet. All just a bit too tacky for me. I like more of a romance.

Having said that I enjoyed the secondary characters a lot and I will probably read the next one, if the author is indeed planning a new series.

HASH(0xaa6b0834) out of 5 stars I want more! 12 February 2015

It’s been 15 years since Cassey was saved from the hell that was her life for her first seven years. Now at 22, she is looking forward to starting her future as a business owner by fixing up the run down dance club that had been in her family for years. With help from her brothers and their knowledge of carpentry and her business knowledge, she opens what quickly becomes one of the most popular spots on the boardwalk but when a local hotel owner sets his sights on taking over the boardwalk, he makes trouble for not just her but other business owners as well. She’s determined to keep her business and won’t be backed into a corner and forced to sell.

Luke had never been his father’s favorite. That title had belonged to his brother but he’s determined to make his father see that he can be a great businessman as well so he sets his sights on the Cassey’s Bar & Grill but it only takes one look to know that his plans were going up in smoke because there was no way that he could take anything from this women.

Cassey’s childhood story made me cry! It was a horrible start with a happy ending. I loved her relationship with her brothers and I truly hope that this book is the beginning to another fantastic series by Jill Sanders because not only to I want more of her brothers but I also want to know what happened to her sister.

HASH(0xaa6b05d0) out of 5 stars A great read! 25 January 2015
By Charli McGee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This was a really great story. Cassandra "Cassey" and Luke meet when Luke comes to try and buy her out of her property. Cassey runs her own restaurant, which is starting to struggle since businesses along the strip, where she is located, are being bought up by a large hotel chain--Luke's father's hotel chain. Cassey isn't going to give up, but Luke won't either. However, they realize the attraction between them is great. They decide to go for a physical relationship, but soon realize, individually, that they are developing feelings for the other. Luke is now faced with possibly having to go against his father, while Cassey accepts her feelings and does her best to keep the restaurant open. Between Luke's family struggles and his feelings for Cassey, he faces many tough decisions. Can he fix everything and make it all work?

Jill Sanders develops such great characters, with a story that progresses nicely. Cassey is strong and knows what she wants and how to work for it. She values her family, coming from an abusive home and being adopted. She doesn't let anything intimidate her. Luke has been driven by his father to learn the family business and be a driving force. However, I sensed that his heart wasn't completely in it from the beginning. When he meets Cassey, something clicks for him. I love the relationship they have. She challenges him, and he loves it. During this time, Luke realizes there is something being hidden from him in the family business. I really enjoyed how he started standing up to his family and confiding in Cassey. Luke and Cassey were perfect for each other.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a great read with great characters. I loved it!

HASH(0xaa6b0cd8) out of 5 stars A sweet romance 29 September 2015
By chrissycf - Published on

Cassey was taken from her home 15 years ago and saved by her guardian angel Lilly. Years after being saved, she's now the owner of a bar and grill on the boardwalk, and has a loving family that is there to support her in what she does. Flash forward two years later and her business is having problems, and the big resort owners are trying to buy her out. Cassey refuses to sell her land, and when Luke, one of the buyers enters her life, she does everything she can to ignore the attraction to him, and not let him in.

Luke and Cassey are definitely attracted to one another, and the more Luke gets to know Cassey the more he knows what his father wants him to do is wrong. He is falling hard for her, yet she doesn't want commitment. I loved seeing Luke squirm his way into Cassey's life, and her loosening some of the walls she built up around herself. When she starts to open up about her past and her childhood with Luke, I knew no matter how much she denied it, she had feelings for him as well.

At times their relationship seems to move fast, but then again, this book moves pretty fast throughout the weeks and months that it covers. Luke learns a lot about himself being with Cassey and starts to work on his own goals as well as help Cassey save her business. The two of them opened up a lot in this book and we got to see both characters step out of their comfort zone and grow a lot in this story.

I adored Luke and Cassey together and seeing her brothers accept Luke like he was one of them. As much as Cassey tries, Luke is a force to be reckoned with, and he definitely makes her fall in love with him. I really liked how once Luke got to know Cassey his father's wishes seemed to disappear, and all he cared about was keeping this girl happy.

This is a sweet romance that will definitely give you the feels. I loved Luke and my heart went out to Cassey and her brothers with everything they have been through. They all deserve their happily ever afters, and I can't wait to read the other books in this series so I can hopefully see that. Luke and Cassey's story definitely finishes with a HEA and I couldn't be happier with how Last Resort ended!

Thank you very much, Jill Sanders for this beautiful novel.....You've outdid yourself with this one, loved how despite Cassey and Luke's effort to keep things between them only physical.....They both found themselves falling in love with each other.... Luke breaking away from his father and letting Cassey know that he could never be just friends with her cause he wanted much more was executed perfectly.... The way Cassey got over her fear of getting to emotionally close to someone was well done.... Love the bound between Cassey, Marcus, Cole and Roman.....Can't wait for what's to come for The Graytons...Looking forward to the new series.
