Holly Lisle: Last Girl Dancing

Last Girl Dancing
by Holly Lisle
(romantic suspense, paranormal romance)

This is the second of Holly’s romantic suspense novels, though it doesn’t have any real relation to the rest of the (loose) series. It is definitely a suspense novel, with plenty of romance thrown in. This one probably is the least “romance-novel” –ish of the series to date, but it still has lots of steaminess. Of the three, though (Midnight Rain and I See You being the other two currently released) this feels the most like a pure suspense with romantic elements thrown in.

I loved this book. It had great character development, and the whole world (though set in the modern-day US) was built with the precision that I’ve come to expect from Holly. Her characters all felt real, the scenario was believable, and the plot twisted enough that – although I guessed the ending shortly before the characters did – I was kept on the edge of my seat all night.

I don’t think I can say enough good things about this book. The only people I wouldn’t recommend it to would be those who either don’t like romance in their books, or who can’t stand suspenseful and slightly graphic imagery. Now, this is not to say that the book has gross images. (Midnight Rain does more of that than Last Girl Dancing, FYI.) But if you have a good imagination and don’t like even the teeniest bit of violence, you probably won’t like several scenes. (Then again, if you don’t like any violence at all, what are you doing reading suspense novels?)
