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
I enjoyed reading Last Chance with its intriguing lead heroine. I wasn’t

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.
