Last Resort – Angie Williams

Rating: 4 out of 5.
You can’t always get what you think you want – sometimes you get what you need (paraphrasing The Rolling Stones here), pretty much sums up the storyline here for me. The story is mainly set at a singles resort designed to find people their perfect partner. It’s lesbian week and both Katie and Rhys have been convinced to attend by their families. Rhys can’t find the person she’s looking for, whilst Katie believes she isn’t looking for anyone, but agrees to go to the resort so her family will leave her alone.

I don’t want to give away any major particulars of the storyline, but I will say I was surprised as to how they met. However I’m really glad it was done this way as I enjoyed them getting to know each other. I was worried this kind of narrative would have an instant love kind of vibe, but it actually almost feels like a slow burn even though the main part of the book only covers approximately 10 days or so.

I really enjoyed the way the dates were used to illustrate the wider groups of people that may find themselves at this type of event and I really appreciated the way Williams used the dates to have discussions on asexuality, family reactions to coming out and moving on from past loved ones (either from loss or breakups). I would have appreciated more diversity though. The dates also serve as a quick introduction to north California geography.

The ending is just right and I would happily recommend this to anyone who enjoys wlw romance books.

I received an e-ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
