Book Review: Shaken, Not Stirred (Last Call #5) by Sawyer Bennett

Casey Markham is a well known man eater. She devours them for a few nights of fun, then spits them out before they can get attached to her. Tenn Jennings is traveling through town on the way to visit his daughter and he is immediately drawn to the beautiful Casey. He quickly realizes that he wants more than one night, but one night is all that Casey is willing to give. Can she move beyond her past and her fears to go after something meaningful?

Since this series started last year with On the Rocks, I've been dying for Casey's story. You just knew there was a broken girl underneath that tough exterior and I wanted to know what her deal was. She has let young love heartache shape all of her relationships with men and it was more than a little frustrating at times. I'll admit at times I wanted to yell at her to get over it already, but when you pair what happened with her love life with what happened to her brother around the same time, I can kind of get it.

Then there is Tenn. Sigh. He's a cowboy. He's a biker. He is the perfect smokin' hot package wrapped up in a sexy ass goatee. And if the combination isn't enough to make you squirm, his mouth certainly will. I loved how he pushed Casey to try without pushing her too hard. Just enough to get her to start moving forward. They both make their mistakes, but nothing unforgivable. While I didn't like Casey as much as I wanted to, I loved Tenn and he more than made up for it in my opinion.

I am sad to see this series come to and end, it has been a fun and sexy ride. But it ended on a high note and I can't wait to see what Sawyer Bennett has in store for us next.

Favorite Quotes

"I'd make you come over and over and over again. And when you insist you couldn't give me any more, I'd make you come again just to prove you wrong."

"This quiet lovemaking we've been doing has been supremely nice, Goldie, but I've been dying to hear you scream."

"You're mine, Casey. And nothing will stand in my way to keep you. Not even you."

"I'm going to spank you, then fuck you, but I'm going to kiss you hello first."

Marianna's Rating:

**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Title: Shaken, Not Stirred
Author: Sawyer Bennett
Series: Last Call #5
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Blurb:
Casey Markham is a man-eater in a rut. Swearing off relationships may keep her heart safe, but she's beginning to question if her casual flings will ever leave her satisfied. She's wondering if it's finally time to let go of the past and stop letting history control her future.

Bad boy biker, Tenn Jennings can't get Casey off his mind. A chance encounter with the beautiful blond has left its mark, and now he's determined to prove her wrong about everything she thought she knew about men.

It’s safe to say… Casey Markham has met her match.
