4 Star Review by Jen Skewes

Shaken Not Stirred is the fifth book in the Last Call series but can be read as a stand alone.  First can I just say how much I loved Tenn! I think that he may just be my favorite male character of this series.   Actually I don’t think it, I know it.  I have loved this series from the start.  And what I loved about it was the group of friends that this series revolves around.  They have all found love except for one.  And that is Casey Markham.

Casey is considered to be the man eater of the group, the last single woman and right now she is fine with that.  She was in love once but when that love left her with a broken heart she swore she would never give her heart to another man again.  She built a wall up around her heart that no man will ever break through.  I have to be honest and say that I wasn’t sure if I liked Casey in the beginning because she just seemed a little too stuck up for my taste.  The men that Casey uses to fulfill her sexual needs are basically rich, narcissitic men.  She knows what she has and she uses it to get men.  So from the outside most people would define her as a gold digger.  But when you really get to know Casey and see the hurt that she went through when she was younger, it all begins to make sense.  No one knows what she has been through or her reasons for never wanting to settle down.  But a few moments with Tenn Jennings and he is already seeing past the layers that Casey has worked so hard to create. 

Tenn is new to this series and new to the small town that they all call home.  He just quit his job and needs to decide what his next move is.  He is on his way to North Carolina to visit his daughter who just moved there with his ex-wife.  Him and his friend Kyle come across a very sexy blonde on the side of the road who is in need of some help.  After helping her they go their separate ways only to meet again later when they find out that they have a friend in common.  There is certainly an attraction and spark between Casey and Tenn.    But we all know that Casey doesn’t do relationships at all.  So will one night with each other be enough?  When it is over can they both just walk away and never look back?

There was so much that I loved about this book.  For one I loved how Casey and Tenn first met and the instant connection that you feel when they do.  Tenn wanted Casey and not just in a physical way.  He knew that there was a wall around her heart and he had every intention of finding out why it was there and then breaking it down.  He was this sexy biker who had a heart. The relationship that he had with his daughter just proves how big his heart really was and what an amazing man he was.  Any man that has that special bond with his daughter, is sexy as hell and rides a motorcycle will make any woman weak in the knees.  Tenn Jennings was just that man and I loved him!!  I loved how he helped Casey to open up and embrace their relationship.  

I grew to love Casey once I understood what had happened to make her shut off herself off from love.  She was a beautiful and confident woman who also had a heart, she just wasn’t ready to give is up so easily again.  She had a wonderful relationship with her best friends and she loved her brothers as well.  Her friends and family were the most important people in her life.  But meeting Tenn changed her.  She slowly opened herself up to him no matter how much it scared her.  I loved watching these two characters fall in love with each other.  They had struggles that the both had to face, both separately and together.  They made some decisions that may not have been the best, but we all make mistakes and we learn from them.  This series is one of those series where you just fall in love with the characters.  You feel like their friends and you feel all of the emotions that they are going through.  I loved seeing each member of this close knit group find their match and fall in love. Tenn Jennings had me from the start and I wanted nothing more than for him to get the woman he love and deserved.  I loved how quickly Casey and Zoey connected and how much she meant to Casey. I loved the roles that her friends played when it came to her relationship with Tenn.  I am hoping that this is not the end for all of them.  Because it will be hard to say goodbye.  There are two characters that I would love to see get their happily ever after, Tenn’s brother Woolfe and his best friend Kyle.  Keeping my fingers crossed.
