Review by: Cholla
When Plain Jane Genie wanders into the Last Call and casually orders a drink, she doesn't know it's a paranormal bar. She doesn't even have a clue her cocktail has a secret code that she's delivering to all interested parties. She just wants to spend her last night in London around music and people instead of staring at the walls in her hotel. As she sips her cocktail, she is stunned to hear a sexy voice whisper, "Let's play..."
Luka and Quentin are shape-shifters, and when Genie crosses their radar, they don't care about her dull clothing or the fact that she seems to be a mundane human. Their Siberian Husky senses tell them that she is much more, and she is exactly what they want. The chase is on, but who catches who?
Just when you thought it was safe to go into a bar… you walk into a paranormal one! And boy, oh boy, is Genie in for a surprise once she orders her first drink. In this fun and lighthearted romp, you’ll watch as Genie gets the most exciting and sultry drink of her existence. Not to mention a major revelation about herself!
Genie is lost and alone and rather down on herself. Tired of always having to serve others, she wants nothing more than a life of her own. Unsure of how to do just that, she stumbles into Last Call for a drink… and finds her life changed forever. Genie is a completely relatable character -– too often in my life, I’ve felt just the same way she was at the beginning of the novel. She always manages to pull through and make it to the next job, however, and therein lies her charm. Life may get her down, but it doesn’t keep her there.
Luka and Quentin are a very odd, but endearing, couple. They’ve been together so long that they know each other inside and out. Hiding a secret between them, they approach Genie for a bit of "last night in London" sport. However, the connection they all find with one another is more than they expected.
Together, Luka, Quentin, and Genie make quite the trio, with each feeding off the other in a never-ending circle of love and lust. Playful and fun-loving, the boys bring a lighter side to the more serious Genie. She, in turn, brings a sense of stability to the boys’ rambunctious ways. A perfect balance and blissful harmony for the three of them.
Belinda McBride can take the most innocent of actions and turn it into a decadent romp. Last Call Europe: Siberian Husky is just another exciting example of that talent. Full of laughs and sighs of pleasure, it is a sure-to-please story of desire and self-discovery.
