I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. The Last Thing You See is the first book I've read by Emma South and I can definitely say, I will be reading more of her books. This book is addictive, enthralling, and supremely well-written. Emma South's characters have real flaws, real strengths, and real passion. These characters become real and you feel their emotions. To see the relationship between Nick and Harper develop throughout this story was great. The Last Thing You See is an unforgettable, emotional story of love and healing, fate and circumstances, hope, second chances, and moving on. It's a story of how true love can conquer obstacle after obstacle and come out stronger.

This is one of those stories that you will think it is going one way and it goes totally the opposite. Harper Bayliss is the latest big thing in Hollywood. When someone tries to hurt her, Nick is there to step in front of her and he takes most of it and winds up in the hospital. When Harper visits him, he can't believe that she is really there. While Harper wants to get to know him better. They seem to be from different worlds but they are perfect together. This story will have you laughing and crying and rooting for Harper and Nick. I loved this one and loved how Emma even had a small place for Jeremy Holt too even if just in name. If you are looking for a great heartfelt story then you can't go wrong with any of Emma South's stories. **Copy provided by the author in exchange for my honest review**

This book was incredible! So very, very good I once again found myself sacrificing sleep because I could not stop turning the pages.  THE LAST THING YOU SEE by Emma South is a touching and heartfelt love story of two people who seem at first look to have nothing in common, but their souls seem to recognize a kindred spirit and they connect on a very deep level.  Their first meeting occurs when a crazed stalker of the beautiful, rising starlet Harper attacks her in public and Nick, a recently discharged Marine, just happens to be nearby and saves her with his lightening fast response. Harper visits him in the hospital to thank him and see for herself he will survive the injuries he endured for her safety. One visit becomes more as they both feel the strong attraction and sense of belonging whenever they are together. Nick becomes Harper's fight trainer for the new movie she's filming giving them a reason for spending regular time together. Despite the attraction, and because of the hidden brokenness they both struggle with, they begin as friends who quickly find themselves comfortable sharing deep secrets creating a strong emotional bond of trust and respect, and finally true love.  I absolutely loved how well Emma plays out Harper and Nick falling in love. This is not a rushed love at first sight story. This is story of second chances, of the healing power of honest and real love, and accepting yourself -- scars and all. Harper may be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, but the scars and insecurities of her early childhood she hides behind her public face have left her every bit as damaged and broken as Nick. Most of Nick's scars may be visible, he was captured and cruelly tortured by the enemy when he was on active duty overseas, but the worst of his pain comes from the loss and failure he feels for not being able to save his girlfriend. Saving Harper begins his slow trek to healing and keeping her safe from the stalker, who is still at large, and gives him a new purpose. For her part, Harper realizes she has found someone who sees her for who she truly is, expects nothing from her, loves her unconditionally, and would give his very life to protect her. She has yearned for this true acceptance her whole life. The last Thing You See is a tender love story, with times of humor, great passion, frustration, sorrow, danger, and suspense told in a very real way through the very talented writing of Emma South.  The entire story is wonderful keeping my full attention and the ending is especially gripping, chilling really. Leaving this reader wondering right up until the end what would be the last thing they see. So good!  5 stars ~Complimentary copy received in exchange for a honest review~

Sometimes the worst of times can bring about the best of relationships. Harper is a rising star, a hot commodity in an industry that loves you one moment and doesn’t recognize you the next. Young, beautiful and magnetic, she becomes the object of more than just fan fever. Enter a scarred and lonely ex-Marine, with more regrets and guilt in his past than anyone should have to carry. Nick just reacts to danger, saving Harper and the rest, as they say is romantic history. Harper seems to have it all, but her past is a dark watercolor of pain and insecurity and her present is run by the firm hand of her overbearing step-mother who has lost sight of the young woman in favor of the commercial empire Harper has become. Can these two damaged souls find a way to heal each other? Will healing Harper help Nick heal himself? An uphill battle to be together in their own little world is full of potholes and emotional roadblocks, but when physical danger once again presents itself, nothing will stop Nick from the one woman who has been able to reach him. The Last Thing You See by Emma South is a tale of second chances, healing and self-discovery, as well as a love story against the odds. Well written and full of speed bumps, Ms. South has avoided the over-angsty, darkness that can be found in NA books as she avoids the over-the-top damaged heroes in favor of creating her own, fresh creations. Harper and Nick are both very well fleshed out and actually quite grounded, and their relationship builds with a depth that feels realistic and well-rounded as they become more than just bed partners. Sultry and heated sensual scenes will sizzle off the pages with their intensity in a physical expression of the love and trust these two have come to share as Ms.South digs deep into her well of creativity and presents a very nice addition to the genre.
