This book has a lot of emotional angst but also some good humour, some triggers perhaps for some-although nothing too explicit, but it is a true love story. I found it difficult to put down once I started, the very dramatic beginning grabs your attention straight away.
Julius Sabatini is a man who solves problems like this..’If I hate you, I murder you.’ He is extremely arrogant and self assured but does have a slight vulnerability about him. He is also obsessed with Sydney Martin, who is extremely confident in her life plans and although has known what it’s like to be bitterly destroyed emotionally and physically hurt, she follows the attitude of making ‘omelettes with the cracked eggs of her life’ and is resilient.
Unexpected humour, granted much of it is sarcastic but still funny, is sprinkled throughout this otherwise darker story. Underlying everything is the true value of family and how much it means and is definitely worth fighting for in life.
This Last Call is easy to read because of its smoothly written storyline. There are a few good twists that are unexpected and really add to that storyline. Yes we can’t all go around shooting people Willy billy but even this is addressed slightly, of course this is a fictional mafia book!
