Review: Last Wish by Erin Butler

lastwish

Nothing feels right. Not since my best friend died and I fucked up the one promise he asked me to make. The past follows me everywhere, tangling me up like weeds, reminding me that my life is empty. So fucking empty.

Then she walks into the bar, all bright beauty and sweet lips made for kissing.

Em Stewart is a complication…one I need to avoid. She’s got heavy secrets of her own, ones she hides from her friends—and lies about to herself.

No matter how hard I try, I can’t resist her, and our unexpected road trip sure as hell isn’t helping my cause. But I’ll be damned if I screw up my first chance at something real…


My Review

I’m just going to keep this review short and sweet. Last Wish is another one of those books that grabbed my curiosity because of the cover. I was intrigued by the story-line, so I decided to give it a try.

What can I say about Last Wish?  When I first started reading the story, it was a little bumpy for me, but the characters were interesting enough and had me wanting to know more about them. Once I got into the story, I really liked Em and Ronan together. I thought they had some good chemistry. I really enjoyed the story once these two got together and thought their relationship was really sweet. I will say that this story does deal with some difficult subject matter, and I appreciated the way the author handled it.

However, I did have a few problems with this book. Em really drove me nuts. I really didn’t like the story-line with her boyfriend. I understand that it was an important part of the story, but if you’re going to have a villain in the story, let’s have him create some more drama. Yes, there is a lot of drama with him towards the end of the story, but I feel that we needed a little more from him in the beginning; maybe a little more background into his and Em’s relationship, just to help connect me to these characters a little more. I also was a little confused by what was going on with Kelsey and Ronan. They used to be boyfriend and girlfriend, but now they’re not. They can’t be around each other and things are weird. At times, I felt like maybe they weren’t quiet over each other, which was weird, since Kelsey had moved on. I guess what I needed was just more development of the story-line and characters. What was there was good and had potential, I just needed a little more from it.

Overall, I thought this was an ok read for me. There was some things that worked for me and some things that did not. I think that this author has a lot of potential with her writing and I would be open to reading another book from her in the future.
