Characters

The two main characters are Rose and Garrett. Rose is the baby bounty hunter who has walls around her heart and the wish for a normal but not entirely normal life. She doesn't want kids. Ironic since she saves babies but that complication is from her past. No spoilers - you'll have to read it. Enter Garrett: Handsome, hotel renovator, and can nail fancy dives (former swimmer with the bod to prove it). There is really only one supporting character and that is Wesley 'Wes' who is Garrett's brother. Technically Emmy, the baby, is also a secondary character - wouldn't want to forget the bundle of joy!

Plot

There are two plots. The romantic plot, which plays it safe with a nice twist of being non-conforming. Also it ends with a realistic 'happy for now' ending which I really appreciated. I would have not enjoyed it as much if the author would have taken that extra step. The second plot is Emmy. Rose is mid-way to bringing Emmy back to her mother from her deadbeat dad that violated their shared custody when a white out snow storm hits. Technically Rose isn't working outside the law - just in a 'gray area' but she doesn't trust the brothers and decides to pose as Emmy's mother. The plot continues from there and adds an extra zing to the story.

Overall

The book was easy to read and was enjoyable. Rose and Garrett are perfect for each other. They practically sizzle off the page. It is nice to get both Rose and Garrett's point of view but there are a few POV issues where they cross over.

The plot was interesting and you really wanted Emmy to get home safe. The one things that stuck was some of the story line was just a little bit too convenient and the inner dialogue was repetitive. That were the only issues with the book though.

This is my first book by this author but I’ve already started reading her “New York Minute.” Great stuff! And what an original concept. I loved all the characters and rooted for the romance between Rose and Garrett from chapter one. Great pace and superb writing. Highly recommended!

If you like romances that are for those that are non-confirming to societies expectations this is the right book for you! Interesting read but the inner dialogue and some of the plot was a little repetitive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual heroine and an intriguing romance! 13 April 2017
By Brutally Honest Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In The Last Resort, Ember Leigh has created one of the more intriguing romantic heroines I’ve ever read. Rose is the very opposite of the ‘girly girl’; the former Marine is now a baby bounty hunter, employed by desperate parents to reclaim their children when the legal system fails to enforce court mandated custody. An expert in jiujitsu, Rose is in her element beating up bad guys but completely lost when it comes to matters of the heart. Getting stranded in a snowbound hotel under renovation with Garrett and his construction crew is most definitely outside her comfort zone. Being there with a bounty client in the shape of adorable fourteenth-month-old Emmy, whose mother she has to pretend to be, makes the situation even worse.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved Rose being so very different to the cookie-cutter girly girl heroines I’ve read in all too many romances lately, and I could really see how she and Garrett belonged together. My heart was in my mouth in the closing stages of the book as both of them agonized over how to communicate with each other; of course I as the reader knew how they both felt due to the omniscient narration but it was very easy to empathize with their nerves as they both awkwardly tried to broach the subject and managed to eventually find their way to a happy ending. Ember Leigh has written an extremely enjoyable romance with complex, intriguing characters here, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy baby bounty hunter? 31 May 2017
By Sonya Killian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a new to me author. I enjoyed this book, I found it easy to read, the characters Rose and Garrett enjoyable. I liked that Rose was a bounty hunter and not your typical one at that. Her bounty hunting consist of diapers and formula, baby bounty hunters walk a gray line she’s within the law and just outside it. Rose finds herself stranded in a snow storm with her charge Emmy, just when Rose doesn’t think things could get worse, they get rear-ended. Rose has no choice but to except the help of her two rear-ending rescuers; getting Emmy out of the storm to a safe warm place is her priority as is getting her back to her real mom. It just so happens Garrett and his brother are in the middle of reconstructing a resort nearby. The ruggedly handsome Garrett has Rose rethinking her priorities; get the baby to her mom or seeing him naked? Decisions, decisions… guess you’ll have to read the book to see want she decides on. 3.5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! 5 STARS for sure 14 April 2017
By Ishabelle Torry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book as a gift in a raffle. I am so glad I won!
The Last Resort is full of humor and steamy romance. I loved how Rose isn't your average heroine. My goodness, she's a bounty hunter who specializes in retrieving children from the wrong people! I couldn't help but fall in love with Emmy, the baby. There are several LOL moments, such as Emmy constantly putting everything into her mouth, which if you have kids, you know how this goes! And poor Rose, who doesn't have children has to learn to adapt to caring for a little one, which is often humorous in it's own right.

I found Rose and Garrett's attraction deliciously sinful as they both struggled to realize they just might want more than they ever realized. Despite being stuck in the middle of a snowstorm, there is plenty of heat between these two to keep them warm...just saying!

If you love strong minded characters with a great sense of humor, steamy buildup and romance, and a chaotic toddler thrown in the mix, then this is your read.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Story 31 May 2017
By Michelle G Forrester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Rose Delany, a baby bounty hunter, gets caught in a massive snowstorm while out on assignment. She and the baby are picked up by a pair of brothers, Garrett and Wesley, who are working to renovate an isolated Pennsylvania hotel. Almost immediately, sparks fly between Rose and Garrett. Their budding relationship is not without obstacles. Rose must pretend to be the baby’s mother in order to keep her profession a secret, and as long as Garrett believes her to be a simple single mother, it seems romance can never truly bloom between them.

In a story like this, one would expect at least a few chapters to go by before the main couple openly express their attraction. Not so here. Rose and Garrett notice their sexual chemistry within hours of meeting each other, and from there, they are more than happy to act on it any chance they get. The ‘erotic romance’ tag is not to be taken lightly. There is sex and sensuality galore with these two, making it all the more suspenseful what will happen when Rose’s secret is finally revealed.

The supporting cast is decent, though the focus never strays from Rose and Garrett. I liked Wes, who seems like a bit of a buzzkill at times but really is looking out for his brother’s best interests. Emmy is an adorable little girl, easily wrapping Rose around her finger. All of them were enjoyable to read about and made for a fun story with some interesting twists and a satisfying conclusion.
