    A MUST READ!!! Seriously buy it!!!

    The Last Detail by Melissa Schroeder is a delicious, futuristic quick romp. The perfect book for a light and super scrumptious night of reading, I highly recommend it to anyone who loves hot guys and tough heroines. The only thing I can find to complain about this book is that it's not a full length novel. A hot, sexy read where the heroine Lou is thoroughly loved and worshiped by her men, with just enough action and intrigue to keep your reading till the end.

    Loved it!

    I am a big fan of Melissa Schroeder's Harmless series so I was excited to be given the opportunity read and review another story from her, The Last Detail before the release date. This novella has everything you could want in a short story! There are gorgeous men, an awesome heroine and sex-lots and lots of hot sex!

    All Lou wants to do is save up enough credits to be able to return to Earth. If she can collar Sam Dawson she will finally be able to go home. In order to get him into handcuffs and bring him in, Lou will need to have sex with him. She thinks this will be easy because she has been physically and emotionally hurt so many times, that she has completely closed herself off to the possibility of a relationship. She would only want to be with one man, her boss Jared, but she doesn't think that he feels the same way about her (boy is she wrong!). Except seeing Sam naked and being in bed with him has opened Lou's heart up and she realizes this collar is not going to be as easy as she originally planned.

    Sam and Lou end up having to go to Jared's safe house together and it turns out that Sam and Jared were once lovers. I loved the history between Jared and Sam and how even though they both changed so much, they still really care about each other. The tension between Lou, Sam and Jared lead up to a very, very sexy night!

    Since it is a novella, I was not expecting such a well thought out story, but The Last Detail was very descriptive and the characters were all well written. I loved Lou and enjoyed watching her hard exterior crumble. Sam and Jared were complete opposites, but both were so caring and protective of Lou. It was so sweet how much they cared!

    And that ending! Oh god, was that ending hot!

    The Last Detail is a fun and sexy read and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in this kind of erotica!

    I hope it becomes a series!

    Wow! I was not sure whether or not this would be my cup of tea, but Melissa Schroeder is on my "Auto-Read" list so I dove in.

    I loved it! The opening immediately gave me a feeling of Blade Runner (which I love) and to have the lead be a kick ass female made it even better!

    Fast paced, the characters have a history which allows for the brevity of the length, and the sexual tension is terrific! The culmination of said tension is scorching!

    I truly would love to see more of this futuristic type story telling from Ms. Schroeder because it opens the door for a whole new series.

    My only negative thought is that it was too short. But for the price point I certainly can't be greedy. However, the skill with which the tale unfolds definitely could have kept me reading for twice the amount of time!

    Entertaining, imaginative & steamy

    Another great book by Melissa Schroeder.I know I can always count on her creating characters that I fall in love with!

    For Lou, a talented bounty hunter, Arcadia no longer holds the appeal it once did. Her newest assignment from Jared looks promising; it finally looks like she'll have enough money to fulfill her dream of returning to Earth after catching Sam. Sounds easy, right? Well, sometimes things just aren't that easy.

    Life has not been kind to Lou; past circumstances have lead to walled-off emotions contributing to her hardcore toughness. Her employer, Jared, has always watched her back and been like a husband, minus the sex, and from the beginning of this journey it's quite evident she has met her match while up against the likes of Sam, an accused spy selling secrets to the highest bidder and "lonely woman's wet dream come true."

    I absolutely love Lou's hardcore exterior shell that encases her suppressed need to trust and let herself be loved. Sam's witty humor, sex appeal and cockiness seems to be just what she needs and Jared's patience and protectiveness is heartwarming, to say the least. In this tale of past/unrequited/blossoming love, which man will be the one to cause her shell to crumble? The answer lies within the pages filled with action, drama, and sweltering sex scenes involving Lou and Sam, Lou and Jared, Sam and Jared, as well as Lou, Sam and Jared! This book definitely deserves a place on your "To-Read" list!

    Another great read by Melissa Schroeder

    The Last Detail offered solid world building, suspense, and the ultimate love triangle. Lou is a bounty hunter hardened by a life lived on the streets. Ten years after running away from earth she's ready to leave the vile planet Arcadia and go home. All Lou needs to do is capture Sam Dawson to earn enough credits to go home. As the story unfolds, Lou realizes the mission is a setup to frame Sam. In danger and running for their lives Lou is forced to call her boss for help. When Lou's boss and only friend Jared arrives on the scene, the surprising history Jared has with Sam and the love he has harbored for Lou is revealed. The world of Arcadia was cleverly built and set the desperate and fragmented tone that resonated with all three of the main characters. Lou, Sam, and Jared all had their own personal demons to battle before they could open their hearts to each other. The chemistry between the three of them was palpable and had me waiting with bated breath to see how these characters would find their HEA. Detailed world building, action/adventure, and heart-wrenching romance made this book impossible to put down. Another great read from Melissa Schroeder!

    Absolutely a must read!!

    Lou Campbell is on her last retrieval, trying to earn enough credits to return to Earth and resume her life there. Her assignment: Capture Sam Dawson dead or alive. Unfortunately, Lou (short for Louella) doesn't count on the overwhelming and immediate sexual response she has to Sam. Jared Flores, the boss who has been in love with Lou for years and the person who gave her the assignment, realizes belatedly that Sam is his ex-lover.

    An undercurrent of sparks instantly start shooting off of Lou and Sam, only to be heightened when Jared enters the mix upon finding Sam and Lou together in his safe house. The ménage à trois sex is hot and steamy, the action exciting and the mystery nicely written into this novella.

    Melissa Schroeder has provided us, once again, with another exciting love story with just the right amount of action, mystery, and sex. The characters were three dimentional and fully developed, which added to the enjoyment of reading this wonderfully actioned-packed futuristic story.
