When Stella Jo Chandler gets an offer to work at the Second Chance Ranch celebrity rehab facility right after graduating from Texas A&M, she’s tempted to turn it down. She wants to help real people with real problems, not spoiled celebrities going on vacation for publicity. But growing up on her family’s ranch left her with a love of horses that draws her to the opportunity. How bad can babysitting a bunch of strung out celebrities be? 

What she didn’t count on was being roped into a tangled mess with infamous rocker and three-time rehab drop out Van Ransom on her first day. And she sure didn’t expect to feel the overwhelming attraction that pulls her to the man who has more issues than she can count on both hands. Like the hotel rooms and tour buses he’s famous for trashing, the havoc he could wreak on Stella’s heart would be irreparable. 

Van isn’t at Second Chance for publicity or because he’s suffering from “exhaustion”. He’s on the brink of destruction, and he needs the kind of help Stella isn’t sure she can give. But without her, he'll lose everything. Because he’s on his last second chance.

Darkly Provocative With One Sinfully Sexy Hero!

The story:
This is the ultimate forbidden romance, with both Stella Jo & Van risking their careers to be together. This is Van absolute last chance to redeem himself with his record label threatening to cut his band he he doesn't clean himself up. Checking into the  rehab facility he doesn't really think he has a problem, until he meets sweet & sexy employee Second Chance Ranch. She's the light to his dark and all Van can think is how unworthy he is of her attention.

Stella Jo is trying to find her place in the world after graduating from college. Determined not to go home to her demanding mother and cold unaffectionate father, she takes the job at Second Chance Ranch. Upon meeting Van, she see something in him, and can't stop thinking about the troubled musician and his sexy smirk. As it becomes hard and harder to ignore their attraction, Van's addiction and getting caught is only some of their worries. With Van's ex creating waves and Stella Jo's family dropping a HUGE bombshell, can their fragile romance withstand all the pressures?

The characters:
Who doesn't love a bad boy, and none come more sinfully sexy than Van Ransom! This sizzling hot musician has some dark demons to battle, most importantly his battle with drug addiction. He's cocky and unapologetic, but that's the what makes him so damn attractive.

Stella Jo is caring woman and want to make a difference in people's lives. I love how she could see past Van's mistakes and see him for the real person underneath. It was also great to see her come out of her shell and explore her sexuality with Van.

The romance:
Hot damn, this romance is bursting with some seriously provocative scenes!!! These two couldn't be in the same room as each other without naughty thoughts popping into their head!! The added fact that they had to keep their sexy affair a secret only added to the steam factor, with spicy rendezvous in the barn and private rooms. But what I loved about the romance between Stella Jo & Ransom was that it wasn't what 'heals' Van, but it does give him motivation. Stella Jo makes him want to be a better person, and Van starts to see a real future for himself, rather than just where he'll get he's next fix. 

The writing:
I love Caisey's writing, it's always filled with emotion and passionate characters. This is by far Caisey's steamiest book yet, with lots of sexy love scenes (one of which may or may not include a riding crop). She also doesn't shy away from giving her character realistic flaws, they make mistakes, sometimes huge mistakes, but that just makes the characters and their stories all the more believable!

Last Second Chance is darkly provocative & gritty story with one sinfully sexy hero! If your after a steamy read with a powerful storyline, look no further!
