Some things can never be fixed…

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…

There is a reason why I love new adult. Yes, some can be over the top angst with a generous amount of sex. There are others that are so emotionally raw, they'll stick with for you for a long time. Last Wish was one of those books. It is beautifully written book about love and forgiveness. From the moment I met Ronan and Em I couldn't stop myself from falling under their spell. Their young love made me swoon. I wanted to stand tall next to Em as she dealt with her ex-boyfriend. I want to be her friend as she heals, both emotionally and physically. Ronan is dealing with his own emotional issues from the death of his best friend. I wanted to hug him as he fights with himself and push him towards forgiveness rather than being angry at the world. As much as I loved Last Wish, I will say that I missed a lot of the background story by not reading the first book, How We Lived, before picking up Em and Ronan's book. I will be the first to admit that it was entirely my fault. If you want the complete story, I highly suggest picking up How We Lived first. I have added it to my TBR and I hope to get to it soon as I can piece together some of what happened before the events in Last Wish. I can't wait to try more of Erin Butler's books. 

Erin Butler is lucky enough to have two jobs she truly loves. As a librarian, she gets to work with books all day long, and as an author, Erin uses her active imagination to write the kinds of books she loves to read. Young Adult and New Adult books are her favorites, but she especially fangirls over a sigh-worthy romance. She lives in Central New York with her very understanding husband, a stepson, and doggie BFF, Maxie. Preferring to spend her time indoors reading or writing, she'll only willingly go outside for chocolate and sunshine--in that order.
