ISHO SummaryMatt Sky is missing. After a solo ascent of Longs Peak that left only a large blood stain, tatters of climbing clothing, and the tracks of an animal in the snow, he is presumed dead …

Hannah Catalano is guarding a secret …

Tensions rise, secrets grow bigger, and passions run deeper in the highly anticipated second book in the Night Owl Trilogy.

 

isho-my-opinion2I received an ARC of Last Light from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

After Night Owl (the first book in this trilogy) I was extremely anxious to read this book. I NEEDED to know what happened to Matt. (If you read it you’ll know what I’m taking about.)

As I started reading this I was relieved to see what actually happened to Matt but then that relief quickly melted away to “WTF?!”  Matt, who is painfully uncomfortable in the limelight conjures up a plan to get him out of the public eye.  He requires Hannah to help him achieve his plan but soon things begin to happen that clearly indicate that his plan just wasn’t the best idea.

Hannah gets attention as Matt’s book Night Owl is “leaked” on the internet.  Aside from being the one and only Hannah in his story she is also accused of being the one that actually leaked the book.

Hannah comes to the realization that for Matt, his writing will always come first.  In the mean time, Matt is finding it difficult to be without Hannah.  The WTF???!!! moments just keep happening.  I found myself yelling at this book. [Note: I was yelling at it in my head.  Not out loud. No need to have me committed.]

Part of what I’ve referred to as WTF???!!! moments are two new characters: Melanie and Seth.  They had me almost tearing my hair out for creating awkward situations on multiple occasions. They were both instrumental in propelling the story forward.  I can’t say why because I don’t want to spoil anything and I can’t trust my big mouth. [Note to M. Pierce:  If you’re reading this, please please please write a book about Seth!!!!]

I cannot end this post without mentioning Laurence, Matt’s pet rabbit. I still love him and I love that Matt loves him too.

I’m not gonna lie.  At first I was wondering why I wasn’t getting into this book as quickly as I did with Night Owl but then I was so into it, I couldn’t put it down.  This is why Last Light gets five cups of delicious steamy cappuccino.

My chronic anger and harsh moods stood far off when Hannah filled my thoughts, and no drug could do that for me, and no other human.  Just Hannah.

Last Light by M. Pierce

I have been anxious for this book, the follow up to Night Owl. I’m hoping it’s going to be as amazing as the first book.  I will let you know.

What I recently read:

Temper For You by Genna Rulon

As with the other two books in the series, I loved this book!!!  Genna Rulon has a way of making the reader become really vested in what happens to these characters.  I will be posting my review soon.

What I hope to read next:

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

For a long time I’ve been hearing about how great this book is.  My sister who doesn’t have a lot of time to read, read this in a couple of days and loved it.  She requested that I read this so we can go see the movie when she’s back from her vacation….on a sunny beach…in the DR…I’M SO JEALOUS! I digress.

There you have it, my W…W…W… Now tell me yours. SHARING IS CARING!

This is the review I wrote and posted back on November 14, 2013

As I mentioned above, I kept hearing about this book so I was quite anxious to read it.  It turns out that I loved it!!!!  I couldn’t put it down.  I couldn’t get enough of Matt and Hannah.

I’m trying really hard to write my thoughts on this book without spoiling anything but what I really want to say is JUST GO PICK IT UP AND READ IT!!! YOU. WILL. NOT. REGRET. IT.  I guess that wouldn’t do, would it?

This book was such a roller coaster ride for me.  From Matt’s reaction to Hannah’s picture to everything that happens afterwards.  There were some very intense sexy times as well as parts that made me cry [it’s a well-known fact that I am a big sap].

Then there’s the issue of Matt’s pen name being M. Pierce, the same name as the author of this book.  Of course, an inquiring mind such as mine had to check out M. Pierce’s website. If you just clicked on that link, you just found out that the real life M. Pierce is just as mysterious as the fictional one.

This wouldn’t be a post by me if I didn’t mention Matt’s pet.  A rabbit named Laurence.  If you do click on the link for the author’s website, go on and click on the “about” tab.  Just look at that rabbit! HOW FREAKIN CUTE IS THAT?!

After reading the epilogue which, I’m not gonna lie, had me freaking out a bit, I am just dying to get the next book in this series.  I NEED IT!!!!

Needless to say, Night Owl got five very hot, very steamy cups of java.

ISHO Excerpt

Matt had a sprawling, high-rise apartment in downtown Denver. I probably should have guessed. The rooms were clean and modern, harshly white, with light hardwood floors and gorgeous area rugs. The fixtures were all of matching brushed metal and the décor was spare but tasteful. I recognized a framed John Singer Sargent print on the wall.

Matt loomed as I padded through the neat, quiet rooms. Each time I smiled at him, I thought I caught a glimmer of anxiety in his expression. Why would he be nervous? Was my opinion really that important to him?

“This place is lovely,” I said. “It’s amazing. I can’t believe it was ever messy.”

“Oh, I had a maid come through,” he said.

“Laurence!” I squealed when I saw the rabbit’s hutch in the living room. The hutch was as swanky as Matt’s apartment, made of beautiful varnished wood with little gold knobs.

“Your lady love is back,” Matt said to the rabbit.

We watched Laurence hop around his hutch for a while. Matt’s hovering was making me uneasy—and strangely aroused. He hadn’t touched me yet, but I knew he planned to. I assumed his bedroom was down the hall.

Was something wrong? Tension and desire made my stomach clench.

We drifted into the kitchen, Matt right at my back.

“Nice.” I swallowed and brushed my hand over the granite countertop. Even the kitchen was immaculate.

I could feel Matt behind me. I thought I heard him take a soft breath. My skin prickled. God, if he didn’t touch me soon—

I exhaled in a rush as Matt brought his chest flush against my back. He pinned me to the edge of the island and cupped my breasts from behind. I moaned.

“Are you ready?” he whispered in my ear.
