The Last Girl by Kitty Thomas
There's nothing snuggly and comforting about this book. But that's kind of the point in reading it. The removed-from-goodness feelings the author means to convey come through in the near-clinical ways she describes what is happening. At first, I felt like I was missing something, but after thinking more about the author's purpose, it clicked with me that this was not meant to be a romance story. This is a story of taking and giving and giving in. And then what happens after you give in. The Last Girl is a great dark erotica read that is set in a paranormal setting, but even if you're not usually a paranormal reader, this is very forgiving in its alternate storyline. Definitely recommend! [February 2014]
Six years ago strangers broke into Juliette’s house; she was home alone. She kept her eyes closed, praying that if she didn’t see anything, she wouldn’t be killed. No one harmed her. In fact, one of the thieves protected her. Now Juliette’s dreams are haunted by him.
Christian has waited to take her, resisting the urge each night. It always ends badly with human pets. They’re too fragile. The longer he can wait, the better, because the moment he takes her, the clock on her life starts ticking down.
Then she’ll be gone forever.
This is a work of fiction, and contains erotic content meant for a mature, adult audience.
