Aleck McLaughlin has three major reasons to keep his hands off Delonna.

One, he's her boss.
Two, she's ten years younger.
Three, he's sworn to never again leave his heart vulnerable.

But then her ex boyfriend steals her money and skips town, leaving her with his gambling debt and a loan shark determined to collect. Aleck's protective instincts kick in and he realizes he'll do anything to keep Delona safe, even if that means moving her into his house and whisking her away to his ancestral home in Scotland.

Delonna's parents' spendthrift ways taught her to work hard for her financial independence. She loves being a bartender on Whidbey Island and hopes to open her own pub one day. When her boss–her very hot and sexy boss–steps in to save her from themess and danger her ex left behind, Delonna says no. She's as used to calling her own shots as she is pouring them...Too bad Aleck doesn't take no for an answer when Delonna's safety's involved.

But just as Delonna starts to say yes, they both find themselves in trouble that has nothing to do with a skipped debt.

I have been waiting for the big pub owner's story since the first book. Seems we had to wait to the last book in the series to get Aleck's story but it is well worth the wait. Always thought there was a spark between the bartender Lana and him and we get to see it it fizzles or grows to a flame. Well written with mystery and lots of heat.

Last Call by Shelli Stevens, Book four in The McLaughlines series. I've enjoyed each of the books in this series. Shelli Stevens know how to write a great storyline. I've enjoyed the close family ties, the settings and the storyline. A sure win in my opinion. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

The McLaughlin series is such great reading, I have really enjoyed this family and the peek into their lives, seems each book has someone falling in love and someone in danger and this author writes both so good. This is the Last Call and the last book of the series and it’s epilogue wraps up the HEA and leaves you with the warm fuzzies. My last word, don’t miss thIs series..

4.5 Stars! Last Call by Shelli Stevens, is the fourth and final book in the McLaughlin series. It is a hot, well-written romance, that I read in less than a day because the plot was fast-paced and captivating. The McLaughin’s are an extremely close-knit and loving family, and they will do everything and anything to ensure the safety of those they care for. Whidbey Island is the home of the Scottish siblings, Colin, Ian, Kenzie and Aleck McLaughlin. Each book focuses on one of the McLaughin children and Last Call is all about Aleck, the serious and handsome pub owner with a heart of gold. Delonna is a fantastic bartender and she enjoys her job in Aleck's pub. Her dream is to own her own pub someday. Delonna rooms with Aleck's sister Kenzie, so she is quite friendly with all the McLaughlin siblings. When her ex boyfriend steals her money and leaves town in order to avoid paying his huge gambling debt, the loan sharks come after her. Aleck comes to the rescue and ensures her safety. Overtime, they give into the sexual chemistry which has been slowly simmering, and evolve their working relationship into much more. Ms. Stevens is a talented writer and her books are always interesting, hot, and exciting. Last Call is a terrific addition to the series and it can be devoured as a standalone. I found Aleck's dominance in and out of the bedroom to be beyond steamy. If you are looking for a solid romance with just the right combination of originality, emotion, and steam, then pick up a copy of Last Call. I have read books two through four and I can't wait to read book one. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

I so loved this series!!! The McLaughlins have become one of my favorite book families. Family is everything to them! Aleck had his heart broken years ago and will not have it broken again until Delonna. Now, Delonna's life is in danger from her ex boyfriend and Aleck steps up to keep her safe, but will he let his barriers down for Delonna's heart. This is has been a wonderful sexy series that I'm sad to say goodbye to. I highly recommend this book, along with the rest of books in the series.

I hate it when I am indecisive on a book. Generally for me it's because of the characters and not the plot so much. This has been a great series, and maybe I wanted the series to end the way it started, with a lot a sizzle and pop! Aleck was sorely lacking in that department. I loved Delonna and the whole family, the pub. Anything in the Whidby's is a great setting for me. He's got his own little mental list of why he should stay away from her and of course he breaks them all, but that's a good thing. He was as stiff as they come. The man was lucky to get his trousers on proper, one minute bemoaning his lot, the next pushing away anything and anyone that took an interest in him. What he does do though is take a protective interest in Lonna and that I liked. When the past gets too close, he takes her home to Scotland. Of course things grow from there, slowly. His parents were great and I loved his Mum. When he realizes he can't and won't face his past afraid of getting hurt, he plays tour guide the last few days they have left before they head back home. Delonna, gets it. I really felt for the girl. He was such a dumb fook, and didn't seem to put forth the effort to even try. Talk about dry. His personality (lack of) almost ruined the story for me, I felt like even an ornery cuss would have been better. Then again that wouldn't have been Aleck, the fook. Of course you have to read the book to find out how the story ends and who ends up with who and what. Otherwise, overlooking the H of the book, it's a great story and the Mc's are a great clan. Read this book and just ignore Aleck. Sadly I think this is the last book of the series. Great series from Shelli. 3.5 stars. I had to deduct half a star because of Aleck. **arc from NetGalley and publisher for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own**

I've been a huge fan of this entire series and while I'm sad to see it end, this book was a great way to wrap it up. Aleck is the eldest of the McLaughlin siblings and he's definitely the most uptight. A tragic loss when he was younger has kept his heart locked up tight but Delonna may be the one woman who can break through his defenses. There has always been a spark between them but until now Delonna has be unavailable. Now her boyfriend is history as is the money he stole from her. Will Aleck step up to help her out? Will he let down his walls and give them a chance? When it becomes clear Delonna is in danger Aleck is determined to do everything he can to keep her safe. What she may need to protect the most is her heart. A great read and one I would recommend.

I have come to love this series, and was looking forward to Aleck’s story. Though I didn’t love it as much as the previous stories, it still was a touching ,at times heartbreaking but also heartwarming story with some suspense thrown in. The series centers around 4 siblings whose parents owned a pub in an island off Seattle , and have not returned to Scotland, the home of the patriarch. Aleck, now is the one in charge and the owner of this pub. Aleck, the oldest very protective sibling, has been watching his brothers and sister fall in love . He’s happy for them, but is not interested in marriage and children. He and Delonna/Lana , his very pretty and young waitress , have been flirting for years. When the need comes to help her, he takes it upon himself to be the one to offer that support. All in all , an entertaining story with complex characters. If you have not read the previous books, I would highly recommend it. I voluntarily read this ARC copy thanks to Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
