Overview

In LAST CALL, Gavin McLeod is a man who has it all. His corporate climb has positioned him as the next CEO at Holden Enterprises and he is financially stable, allowing him to provide for the grandfather who raised him. His private life is also on fire, as evidenced by the successful seduction of a sexy bartender who gets under his skin and makes him crave more than just sex. Life is perfect until the alluring woman in his arms turns out to be a serious road-block to his future, one that could bring everything he's worked for crashing down around him.

Sunny Black has spent her entire life tending to the needs of others: caring for her younger brother since she was ten, and serving bar patrons night after night. For the first time in years, she puts herself first, taking a trip on the wild side with a customer whose raw sexuality is too strong to deny. The next morning, however, she learns that in addition to rocking her world, the stranger might destroy everything and everyone she's worked so hard to protect.

A game of sexual seduction and corporate chess ensues, but when Gavin and Sunny are unable to negotiate a satisfying resolution, Gavin's boss steps in and puts both their lives at risk.

Each book in the Heat Wave series stands alone and can be read out of order.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews - Slick Reads
I am so happy I asked to review these books by Alannah Lynne. I love this author's voice; her characters feel like friends, her setting feels like a place I could call home, and no doubt her wicked sex scenes make you feel all kinds of things! One of my top ten book choices of the year!
Thejeepdiva.com - Zafira .
Ms. Lynne brings depth to her characters and stories. As I read the book, I could picture in my head the places and people that she described. Her style of writing is edgy that can be transcribed into any small beach front to the largest of cities. I look forward to reading another book and series, and hope the characters from both book will make appearances in a third book. A must read.

Gavin is driven, ambitious, he knows what he wants and is not afraid to go after it. This is why he was the next CEO at Holden enterprises. All he wanted was to provide for his grandfather who took him in after he lost his parents. Gavin McLeod was sent to Anticue to work out an acquisition, instead he bumped into this sexy bartender that had rocked his world. What he didn’t know was that this woman was the one he needed to secure his future. Now he is torn between work and his growing attraction and fascination to Sunny. He was unlike any other woman he has met. Sunny has a very positive disposition in life, not to mention she worked hard so that she can take her brother away from their past and offer him a better future. She has been taking care of her ever since, so her life has been put on hold. Her world revolved around him and the bar. But just for tonight, meeting Gavin had brought out her recklessness. She wanted him for herself. She wanted to cross that line and give herself something that she really wanted. But what if he was not what she thought he was? What I like most about this book? Intense chemistry, off the charts sexiness, and surprising twists. Not to mention some unforeseen friendships and scenes on the beach that had me swooning. The inside is as steamy as the cover, Alannah Lynne made sure her readers weren’t disappointed. It’s hot, sexy and romantic.

Last Call by Alannah Lynne is the second book the Heat Wave series. It can be read as a standalone and out of order from the series. This story focuses on Gavin, who is practically second-in-command at a big development company that develops resorts etc. He is sent by his boss to a small outer island town in North Carolina to check out a bar there. At this bar he meets Sunny and falls instantly in lust for this intriguing woman. Sunny has never been the best at flirting and when the stunningly handsome Gavin enters her bar she is left stammering at his beauty. Until he laughs at something she said and the tension is gone and they hit it off. What both of them fail to realize is that they have been placed at odds with each other since before they even met, and when they each realize that the other is standing in the way of their goals the poop hits the fan, big time. Another smooth, easy read with a pleasant smattering of steam mixed in with intrigue and plot twists. Well-paced and a very enjoyable read.

Gavin, a sexy as all sin business man being groomed to be the next CEO, walks in to a bar with three females... Sounds like the lead in to a dirty joke, but in all truth Gavin is there for a job. Although he doesn't necessarily know what that job is besides looking around. And what he sees besides a relaxing bar is a sexy bartender with an addiction to dum dums (the lollipops, not men!),a bit of a naughty side with her nipple chains, and a name to suit her personality.  Sunny, who has raised her brother for the past few years, doesn't have a personal life outside of caring for her brother and tending to her bar. When Gavin walks in one night she finds herself wildly attracted to him, but finds herself playing a dangerous game when she realizes who she is and what he wants - besides her. Will Gavin find himself in the arms of a bartender with a sunny personality and go back to his roots or will the lure of a CEO position have him high tailing it back to where he's from?  Alannah showcases her talent once more in the second book in the Heat Wave series. Once again, the perfect setting along with characters that you can fall in love with makes Last Call such a great read. The plot is more suspenseful this time around as readers question "What choice will Gavin make?" and how it will end. I never thought Gavin's boss would stoop as low as he did, but color me surprised when it happens.  The only thing I wished this book had more of is Gavin's interactions with his grandfather. With his grandfather being such a crucial part of his life growing up, I would have loved to see more of their dynamic, but I truly enjoyed Gavin's hard work on the farm and his farm boy roots.  Gavin is a tall drink of deliciousness and Sunny is probably one of the most likable female characters I've had the pleasure of being introduced to. She's strong, caring, has a naughty side, a sunny personality, and she truly cares about those she comes across. I loved her addiction to dum dums and nipple chains - those two things made Sunny such a quirky, but kick ass character to me.  While Last Call didn't feature any characters from the first book, these new characters each are completely different from characters I have been introduced to in the past and I enjoyed reading about each one.

I really liked the book and it adds more characters into the mix... but it didn't tie in to any of the characters in the first book...   Still a great story!!

I liked this book. I have read some of her previous work and she still has a way with words. She has  some of the most interesting characters-Sunny and Gavin. She also has a way of putting her people in the most intriguing situations- nights on the beach and gas leaks. I won't say this is a graphic read but it's not a kid read either. I can't wait for the next book. Give Alannah a try you won't regret it.

This is the 2nd book in the Heat Wave series, and what a story! Gavin meets Sunny working at the bar she owns and there's an instant attraction between the two. Things get complicated when he finds out why he was sent there to begin with. Another complication is Sunny's brother, whom she has been taking care since he was a teen. I loved reading about Sunny, she is such a strong and feisty woman, and just what Gavin needs as his life is not ending up like he envisioned. Make sure you pick up a copy to find out how they work all these things out, oh and of course to read all the sexy scenes too.
