Last Chance is a story of love and heartache proving that life is not always fair, but it's worth the pain to get the moments you’ll treasure forever.


From the very first moment I laid eyes on him, I knew my heart was his for the taking. He was the boy who filled me with butterflies and made my palms turn clammy at the mere sight of him.

There was only one problem… he was my best friend’s older brother.

It’s been eight years since I’ve last seen him, and I refuse to live another day without telling him the truth. So here I stand, taking my last chance to get him to notice me, my last chance to see if he feels the same way.

I need to know if he is just a fantasy, or if he could be my reality…

Before my reality changes forever.


I never wanted a girlfriend; I was burned by love and vowed to never go down that road again. But when the beautiful girl I’ve known practically my entire life snuck her way into my arms there was something that changed in me. I wanted to be with her, next to her. Just simply kissing her lips made my life complete.

Now I have one mission.

To make hers complete, too.

Christina’s review

What a way to start the New Year with an amazing book? Just wow. I actually didn’t read the blurb so I honestly had no clue what I was getting myself into. This is my first read of Lauren and I loved her writing style.
Now this story had me reading until late into the night, and reading it at work. Which by the way is a bad idea. There was so much emotion put into this story. The love and the outlook that Mackenzie had on life, and how she wanted to live it. Conner, Mackenzie’s best friend’s brother and long time crush, helps amplify her dreams. I must warn you, if you don’t have a black heart, this story will have you tears. Good, bad, happy, and sad tears. You just can’t help it. I was able to relate to the characters and you can feel the pull between Mackenzie and Conner.
Like I said this is my first read of Lauren’s books, and I plan to read more of her soon. She has now made a new fan.
