by Briana Gaitan
Summary from Goodreads:
Plagued by past mistakes in both love and life, Quinn Bardot is in a bad place. With nowhere else to turn, she escapes to LA clinging to the promise of a fresh start.
Chase Crowley is known for being selfish and unbelievably persistent. All he’s ever wanted is to become a successful actor. But now that he is about to have it all, he finds that something is still missing. Money and fame isn’t what he expected.
After a fervent encounter, the two of them are thrown into a situation that neither is prepared for. Can Quinn extinguish her fears and let Chase in? Can Chase learn to put someone else’s needs before his own?
The Last Thing is a novel all about love, Hollywood, and accepting what life throws at you even if it is the last thing you want.

***The Last Thing is a stand alone book with NO cliff hanger ending. It is book one in the series.***
The Last Thing was a story about two very different people from totally different worlds. I kind of felt a connection with Quinn, I felt her pain throughout the book and was rooting for her from the start. She was broken in so many ways and it was great to see how the most unlikely candidate -Chase, a self-centered famous actor would rise to the occasion and be the one to save her. However, Chase had issues of his own and he also had a past, although very different from Quinn’s. In a way, they were actually saving each other.
Overall, the book was an enjoyable read with its ups and downs and its fair share of Hollywood drama. I liked Ginger too and it was nice how the author set it up so that she can get her own book too.
