The previous book by Christy Reece, Second Chance, didn’t particularly grab me, but Last Chance is a much better read overall. Reece introduced this book's main characters in Second Chance, and even then I found them more interesting than the lead characters in that story.

The mysterious McKenna Sloan works occasionally for Last Chance Rescue in an undercover role. When we meet her in Last Chance, she is rescuing Lucas Kane, billionaire Englishman - although it seems that he’s pretty good at rescuing himself. Lucas finds McKenna immediately intriguing, but she disappears completely from his life.

Lucas wants to see McKenna again, and eventually they meet. He can tell she’s running from something in her life and wants to help her, but McKenna is fiercely independent. With a love affair growing, perhaps McKenna needs to finally deal with her demons. If Lucas tries to do that, too, their separate plans might together cause a disaster.

I enjoyed reading Last Chance with its intriguing lead heroine. I wasn’t sure I particularly liked McKenna - she seems disinclined to think of anyone else’s feelings - and the baddie is slightly too pantomime-baddie, but the story moves along, never boring. A definite improvement on Second Chance.
