I should accept what life throws at me, even if it is the last thing I want...

Plagued by past mistakes in both love and life, Quinn Bardot is in a bad place. With nowhere else to turn, she escapes to LA, clinging to the promise of a fresh start.

After a fervent encounter, the two of them are thrown into a situation for which neither is prepared. Can Quinn extinguish her fears and let Chase in? Can Chase learn to put someone else's needs before his own?

The Last Thing, whilst fairly predictable suprised me and was actually quite an enjoyable read.

Quinn, a fairly innocent southern girl leaves her hometown after a tragedy rocks her world and moves to hollywood to live with with her soap star cousin Ginger. Trying to put a past that haunts her behind her Quinn Attends a party with Ginger where she meets Hollywood playboy, Chase Crowley. Sparks fly and soon there are quite a few issues that arise from their night together and attraction to one another, however whether Chase is able to change his ways and Quinn is able to move on from her past will determine whether they have a future together or not.

There was definitely an insta-connection between the two main characters, which I quite liked, you didn't have to wait for half the book for them to get hot and heavy. I know this can be a deal breaker for some people so consider yourself warned.

I liked the characters in this book. Chase was your typical playboy trying to reform himself (what's not to love) and Quinn was a sweet, strong girl trying to overcome a terrible event that affected her so deeply. They both had their flaws but together made each other better and stronger. Ginger was a totally loveable secondary character. I wish I had a cousin like Ginger!.

For her debut novel, I think Briana Gaitan Has written a great book, it was a quick, easy and enjoyable read with some great characters, romance, drama, angst and a satisfying conclusion.

I look forward to reading more of her books.

Quinn escaped after virtually being chased out of her hometown by the locals after the tragic death of her boyfriend, the town hero. She goes to live with Ginger her cousin, who also escaped, but we don't know why. So I assume the next book will reveal why. There's so much to Quinns history.
Chase up & coming star, playboy etc. something happens between these two which leads to more. I actually liked Chase compared to some players & you see why.
A nice quick romance but it ended rather flat, so I suppose we have to find out more about these two in Gingers story. A pity I would've given it 1/2* more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful heart touching listen 7 May 2015

When I agreed to listen to this I didn’t know what to expect, I thought it sounds interesting I will give it a listen. From the first page the author and narrator pulled me in to one outstanding read. I had never read anything by this author and was very surprised how well the story came together. This is a very serious plot with a lot of humor. I feel the accent most likely gave it more humor than it would have had if I had read it. Chloe Golden gave Quinn a sassy attitude more so than I think you would have gotten if you had read to it. I totally loved this, she hit the tones just right to make Quinn a much loved character. I feel by reading it I would have felt that she was just a pity me girl which she did not come across that way with the audio.

I would have to say when I first started listening to it I thought what have I gotten myself into. By the end of the first page I was hooked. By the ending I thought OMG it is going to be a cliffhanger. I really didn’t think in the short time left in the book the author could pull off but she did much to my surprise and it was a wonderful ending. My hats off to Ms. Gaitan for writing a wonderful plot where the words flowed smoothly, putting humor just where it needs to be and giving a book well worth listening to. I found this to be very believable and could be out of today’s headlines.

Quinn is trying to outrun her past and it is a big one with a lot of people not happy with her. You won’t find out the full effect until later on. When I found out the whole story my heart broke for her, she is strong or once was but now is weak. It is hard when everything you hold dear is taken from you and you feel you are to blame, you give up, you don’t know where to turn or who to trust. It was a pleasure watching her come out of her shell and grow to the person she once was. Quinn is a very sassy lady who isn’t sure what she wants just wants to start over. One night changed her life years later another night will change her life forever. I loved that she knew the word NO and used it enough lol. I loved that she didn’t run head into issues but thought them out. She was slow on the take but once things fell into place she worked it out nicely. Finding ones strength can be tough when you hit rock bottom. Quinn is strong she just needs to find that strength again.

Chase is an every woman’s man he believes in one nightstands…..has many until one night when one lady turned him down. It was a amazing how she tied him in knots they had a love/hate thing going on there for awhile. I really came to love Chase but as the story goes on I really wasn’t that crazy about him. I understood where he was coming from and do believe most would have made some of the same choices he did. He fell back into my good graces in a fast way. He really is a wonderful strong man who grew to know what love is all about. Even when things got in the way he pretty much stayed on his course.

This is a very touching painful read about two people who have to grow to trust, learn about love and outgrow their past as they try to make a relationship work. Many people get in their way even the past will come back. It is hard when you love so much to have it torn from you why you can’t remember all that happen. It was an outstanding read that I plan on listening to again, it is full of day to day drama but the author gives it to you in a way that you can laugh a little. These two butt heads over and over again as they learn to give, take and love. I am so looking forward to checking out more from the series. I sure hope her cousin gets a book of her own and she finds someone who can truly be the man she needs.

I read this book with little expectation based on the cover, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good the story was. This story was about Quinn who moved to LA to stay with her cousin to run from her past. While there she meets Chase who is an actor. Chase is a love em and leave em kind of guy who falls for Quinn. Quinn, because of her past doesn't want to get involved with anyone though She falls for Chase.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book was a good read for me 31 March 2015

This book was a good read for me. It didn't jump right into the sex thing right away. Yes, there was one scene in the beginning, but it didn't lead to more and more sex and then that is what you were always reading about. It lead to something wonderful and the start of a wonderful relationship between two people. I like the way the story plays out and it shows more about the relationship than the sex. I look forward to reading the next book to see where this story leads.

I'm always intrigued by the way character almost instantly go from commitment phobia to wanting the family. I want to believe that it this, it just takes the one right girl or guy to come along to know they're the one. That's what stories are for. Chase was just amazing to break down Quinn's barriers and fears. A thousand recommendations.
