Romance Blog Tour & Review: One Last Kiss by Susan Ward

Linda is on a mission to find her father. Her journey to locate the gifted musician who abandoned her before she was born takes her through the steamy and drug fueled world of the LA music scene where she is rapidly climbing the ranks as a prime groupie sought after by the brilliant and talented men of rock music.

Jackson Parker is a living music legend from the ‘60s. But hard living, the death of his wife, private tragedies, and a personal life in shambles sends him on a downward spiral into despair.

On a lonely night on a Santa Barbara beach the last thing either expects is to find the one person they absolutely need to make their lives complete. Will Linda’s chance meeting with a drunken Jackson change both their lives forever?

Together these two broken and desperate souls collide in a passionate affair that is impossible for either of them resist. Together they each find the solace they need: a man searching for peace and a girl searching for closure. One thing is certain, their chance meeting has kicked off an affair without end.

I've written 26 books in 25 years.  I write contemporary romance novels about messed up rich girls with perfect looking lives and naughty little souls and the hot mercurial men they take captive... and on occasion messed up rich girls from exciting periods in US and British history, and the poor Lords and Pirates they hold under their spell.  

This is a very powerful, passionate romance between two very broken, desperate souls.  It's one of those stories that's deeply emotional and touching - one that connects you deeply to the characters.  The lives that Jack and Linda led to bring them to one another were not without hiccups and obstacles that they both had to go above and beyond to overcome.  And when their paths collide, it creates a beautiful story of love and understanding.  

The author has gifted the reader with two characters that are so flawed and so raw.  But in each other, they find solace, and it makes their pairing ignite with eroticism and passion.  There's a desperation in their need for one another, and it makes for a wonderful (and a little sad) romance.  

The plot of the story is sad.  But it feels real.  It isn't one of those lets make everyone feel all tingly inside stories.  It's a true to life kind of experience that pulls at your heart strings and submerges you completely in to the story.  It isn't just a book.  No, it's an emotional ride.  And it's one that you'll definitely want to take.  

Rating: 5 stars 

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.  All conclusions reached are my own.
