After her boyfriend finally loses his patience and leaves her to drown her sorrows, her best friend Georgia comes up with a plan that becomes more and more brilliant with each shot of tequila.
Book a non-refundable solo trip to an adults-only resort with the intention of getting laid.
The beach is picturesque, her room is luxurious, the alcohol is included … and Danielle can’t wait to get the hell out of there the second she checks in. That is, until an uninvited kiss from drunken hotel guest and Hollywood hottie Evan Weston. Once Evan discovers the reason for Danielle’s vacation, he won’t let up in his pursuit to be the one to solve her problem.
Caught between her desire for a fresh start and the preposterous idea of having a fling with her celebrity crush, Danielle decides it’s time to throw caution to the wind and her panties to the floor.
But it’s never just sex, is it? And Evan Weston isn’t just any man. He isn’t just a movie star.
Evan Weston is Danielle’s last resort.

LAST RESORT by Kate Roth is such a FUN summer read and you need to be near a pool or a beach or at least near some kind of body of water so you will have someplace to cool yourself down. I would even suggest taking the ice challenge after reading this book. I mean this book is all kinds of Hotness.
The plot seems to be simple. Dani’s boyfriend has broken up with her because she has problems when it comes down to getting down to it and she needs to get away. So, she books a trip to an island that specializes in grownup fun. Danielle needs this. She needs to relax and learn to have a “good time” but she meets hunky movie star Evan and he is so much more than she bargains. SERIOUSLY who can resist a hunky movie star?
I love this read!! I sat down to read a few chapters and all life stopped as I had to finish what I started. LAST RESORT is just that good. This is a steamy and hot read but the conversations between all the characters are superior. I love to read a book that is effortless to get involved with. I was just so enthralled. Just be warned, LAST RESORT does have a small cliff hanger but it will only leave you wanting to know what happens next and Kate Roth just leaves you hanging a little. The rest of Dani and Evan’s story is in BEST LAID PLANS, which comes out in September, so the wait will not be long.
I had so much fun with LAST RESORT and would suggest it to all my hooligan friends that love exotica.
LAST RESORT by KATE ROTH receives 5 out of 5 Platypires!!!
TEXAS HUGS and Happy Reading!!!
EXCERPT and TEASERS:
Sitting up, I raked a hand through my hair, which had dried into a mess of bedhead waves. The knocking continued and my heart pulsed with excitement knowing deep down it must be Evan. Bouncing over to the door, I looked through the peephole, flinging the door open a little too eagerly when I saw him. Evan’s eyes widened when he saw me and then a wicked grin curled on those lips I pined for.
“I fell asleep,” I said pitifully.
His eyes were gleaming and without saying anything he gave me a long, dragged out once-over. I glanced down at myself and remembered I’d put on the red satin babydoll nightgown to soothe my skin. Seeing the fire that played behind his eyes as he took me in made the fine hairs on my neck stand at attention. He stepped into me just as he had when he came to kiss me solely because he’d wanted a kiss from me. I backed into the room, my teeth sinking into my bottom lip as I watched the hunger grow in his stare.
Evan was still smiling devilishly when he stepped into my space, making me step back. He was leading us in a dance that moved me straight to the bed where he’d already ravaged me time and again. When my calves hit the edge of the bed, I sank down to sit on the rumpled comforter.
“What are we celebrating?” I breathed.
He tugged his shirt over his head and tossed it near the window. I scanned his firm chest and stomach, sun-kissed and flexing with every breath. My eyes grazed the small script tattoo over his heart, but as he traced his finger from the center of my lips down to the meeting of my breasts, I lost interest in his secret for the night. His finger hooked the slight V of the front of my lingerie, dragging it down before letting it pop back into place over my cleavage.
“That outfit,” he replied.
