Last Girl by K.S.Thomas- Review!

GENRE: Contemporary Romance
COVER DESIGN: Najla Qamber Designs
CONTENT WARNING: Adult language / Mature Content

When Beatrix ‘Trix’ Daley loses her twin brother Bo in a tragic accident, she inadvertently gains his best friend, Penn, whether she wants him or not. Penn is the exact opposite of her brother. Obnoxious. Cocky. And out to sleep with as many women as possible. But he knows. He gets it. Because he lost Bo, too.
Penn’s been going out of his way to piss off Trix since he was six. Twenty years later, and getting under her skin is still his favorite pastime. And Bo’s still the only thing that keeps them tied together. Even if he has been dead for eight years.
For better or worse, Trix and Penn have been the constant in each other’s lives, and the line between love and hate continues to blur at a steady rate…but Trix is the last girl on earth a guy like Penn should fall for. So there’s no telling which side of love and hate they’ll wind up on when all is said and done. And whether they’ll wind up there, still together...or not.

My Review:

Last GirlLast Girl by K.S. Thomas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beatrix 'Trix" loses her twin brother, Bo, in a tragic accident when they war 18 years old. Bo's best friend Penn has been someone that Trix has fought with since they were children. Now she is stuck with him, because even though their relationship is contentious, each of them is the only other person who really knows what it was like to lose Bo. As time goes on, they realize that their relationship isn't exactly easy to define and may be more than either of them anticipated or wanted.

I got hooked into this book pretty quickly and then read it straight through. There were some things I didn't expect, that I found to be really interesting developments to the story and kept me engaged throughout. Trix is an easy character to care about. She is a smart, and driven person who is trying hard to live her life after the death of her twin brother. Penn is a cocky guy who is actually really easy to like as well despite some of his overt behaviors. It is clear that through all their bickering and fighting they both care about each other in a very complete way. It is unclear whether they could ever have a relationship beyond the one they forged out of grief and necessity. As they both start to acknowledge what they both really want from each other, everything starts to fall into place in a wonderful way.

I don't really want to give anything away, but I'll mention that I was really emotionally invested by the end and I was certainly experiencing a variety of feelings but the end of the book. There is a thing at the very end of the book that I'm not quite sure how I feel about. I think whether you love it or hate it, it will give you something to think about.

I enjoyed this book and would gladly read more by this author in the future.
