The Last Hour By Charles Sheehan- Miles (Thompson Sisters #3)







The Last HourMy Rating: RAPE!!!!!(5++++ STARS)
Publishing date: April 15, 2013
Publisher: Cincinnatus Press
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Steam Level: Warm 

Synopsis:
Twenty-seven year old Carrie Thompson-Sherman has the life she always wanted: her PhD, a prestigious fellowship, and an amazing husband. Her life begins to unravel as a jealous colleague puts her fellowship in jeopardy and a haunting secret Ray Sherman carried home from Afghanistan comes to light. 
Hounded by a federal investigation and the ensuing media feeding frenzy, Carrie and Ray desperately lean on each other, until a disastrous accident puts both Ray and her sister's lives at risk. 
In the last hour, Carrie and Ray will each find themselves faced with a choice.
A choice that will change everything.



The severity of raw emotion and heartache in this story is incredible. The Last Hour is a contemporary romance, but is also so much more. It’s the story of war, the story of the unfairness of life, the story of a tragedy, but also the story of a miracle. This is not for the weak at heart; there are gruesome descriptions of injuries and deaths. There is no sugar coating what the characters are going through, it’s all laid out in plain view, every single tear, heartache, and torment you will feel.

“One thing always leads to another and not all outcomes are good….How did you trace back the chains of responsibility to a point where you could pin down completely? I didn’t know the answer to that.”

The way this story is told is pure utter brilliance. It is completely unique and every layer that unfolds will have you heart thumping, waiting to see what will happen next. The jumping in time from past to present only heightens the emotional intensity.

The relationship between Ray and Carrie is beautiful and is everything that love is supposed to be. They are true partners in life and their trust and loyalty to each other never waivers. What Ray and Carrie have to go through in their 9 months together is unfathomable, but the key is that they go through it together and lean on each other when it becomes too much to bear.

“That feeling that I could touch the sky? That’s exactly how you make me feel.”

Ultimately, this story is about choices, the hard ones and the easy ones, the ones that will forever change our lives. Books that affect me to the caliber that The Last Hour has are few and far between. Ray, Carrie, and this story will forever be in my heart.

“Small moments, missed opportunities, things we don’t see or pay attention to at the time sometimes have a far bigger impact on our lives than we would have ever guessed in advance.”

NOTE: I have read all three of the Thompson sister books and while they are all GREAT reads, this one is by far my favorite. It is not necessary to read the previous two books in this series and The Last Hour is 100% a stand-alone novel, however the family and supporting characters will mean a little more to you if you have read their stories as well.

An ARC was received for an honest review.

GIVEAWAY & Excerpt: Plastic Hearts by Lisa De Jong







My life has always been safe. I like it that way. I grew up in a fake society where plastic hearts rule. If our hearts are made of plastic, they can never be broken. My parents have expectations and I do everything I can to meet them, even if it means giving up on my own dreams. 

Now, all I want is to be free to make my own choices. 


Dane Wright is everything I have been warned to stay away from. We met one night while I was with my perfect, parent-approved boyfriend and I haven’t stopped thinking about him. I don’t want to like him. I am doing everything I can to ignore his pull, but my heart seems to want what it cannot have, what it has never had. 


Can he measure up? He may think I am too good for him, but maybe he is too good for me


 Life is a series of choices and I have never been able to make my own. Until one day, when my heart decides to make a choice for me.

Excerpt 

I felt a finger under my chin, lifting my gaze back up to his eyes. “Hi,” he said. I couldn't quite hear his voice, but I could read his amazing lips under the strobe  lights. God, he was beautiful, the type of beautiful that renders me temporarily speechless. I wasn’t sure how long I stood there searching for something to say, but it was long enough for me to completely forget my own name.
“I’m here with my boyfriend,” I finally blurted. It came out so quickly I wasn’t even sure he understood a word I said. Why did I always turn into a blabbering mess when I was nervous? Did I mention that when he smiled, two magnificent dimples appeared? Dammit.

I watched him look around and then he smiled. “I don’t see a boyfriend. Sorry, you’re going to have to come up with something a little better than that. Try again.” Who did this guy think he was?

I pressed my lips into a tight line. “No, I’m really here with my boyfriend. Right, Jade?” I turned around to pull her into the conversation, but she was gone. This was not going well. This mystery man had unnerved me by putting his hands on my body and flashing those incredible dimples and there was no one around to save me. I was stuck on the dance floor with a sexy stranger while my boyfriend and best friend were nowhere to be found. Ryan was probably sitting at the bar, slowly nursing his first beer, while Jade was doing God knows what with a guy whose name she would never know.

I hesitantly turned back toward him until our eyes met again. He seemed amused as he continued to smile down at me. “So do you want to keep dancing? Or can I buy you a drink?” He shouted over the music.
