The Last Thing by Briana Gaitan--New Adult Review
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. 

Quinn and Chase's love is unconventional but realistic. They fell for each other rather quickly which is usually a turn-off but it played out fairly well. There were some moments I felt like the story would be predictable but the author gave it a sort-of unexpected twist which made it more unique.

Quinn having dealt with what you can say is a rough patch escapes home and moves in with her cousin, and soap opera star, Ginger. With a troubled background you can imagine that Quinn will be apprehensive about love and she is but Chase changes everything.

Readers will enjoy Quinn's character for both her struggles and her strength, and will find the same attachment to Chase.

If you're looking for a decent NA read, with love, struggles, and realistic events this book is for you.


  1. I haven't heard of this one until now but it sounds like something I might be interested in! I love strong yet vulnerable characters and it sounds like these characters fit into that mold pretty well. A lot of books have been releasing lately with a setting in Hollywood and I'm really liking the trend so far so I'll have to check this one out!

  2. I don't love NA, but this sounds interesting!
