The blurb really got my attention. You can already feel the chemistry before officially starting to read the book. Charlotte was a fun character. Her dating rules were great, and not too bad of an idea in many ways. (Even if I did want her to break a few) Mr Mystery knew just how to play her game too, which is just what she needed. I loved the sides to him. The mystery side was full of excitement and the unknown. Then as you get to know bits of the real him, he's all the more endearing. The supporting characters are friends you'd want in real life, and I'm so glad they'll be getting their own books within this series as well. Plus, the whole Missed Connections on Craigslist aspect of the story was just plain fun too. Who hasn't entertained themselves and wondered about some of those people on that site? Last Dance was such a fun, naughty little romance that kept me wondering about Mr. Mystery in the most thrilling ways. The ARC of Last Dance by Jeffe Kennedy was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Last Dance is the first of a sexy romance series about 5 young women who have a set of rules that decides whether the guy they meet gets to advance with them to more intimate encounters. When stage actress Charley meets a mystery man who sweeps her off her feet at the last dance at a bar and disappears, she can't get him out of her mind. Her friend suggests placing an ad in 'Missed Connections' and it works - sort of. It gets her another meeting with him, but he insists on playing up the intrigue around their encounters by approaching a relationship one fanciful (and steamy!) meeting at a time. It's a far cry from what Charley is used to, but that makes it all the more fun. But he's got a secret that could damage what they are building between them... I love the concept of this series! The rules are agreed to by all five female friends as a way to prevent bad hookups and they work, so long as they are strictly followed. There are several scenes with just the friends that show their closeness and camaraderie. Charley's a bit of diva and she likes attention, which works perfectly for her chosen profession as a stage actress. But she's also fun and friendly. Her meetings with the mystery man keep her on her toes as she never knows what to expect from him. He pushes her sexual envelope, recognizing her need for attention as a gateway to exhibitionism and in public or private, he's got the control. They share some very steamy scenes as a result, but when she finds out who he really is, Charley has to acknowledge that her feelings for him are not just sexually motivated. There are a few ups and downs as they make their way to a happy ending. Likable characters, sexy scenes and a modern approach to dating and romance - I'm looking forward to reading more of this series!
