All romanced out, Love Fairy Alastrina is tired of putting together happy couples. All she wants is a little bit of "me time" to forget her job for one night. She strides into Last Call: London looking for some action.

Chocolate Shock: Heat packed sexin' -- no baggage required or desired.

Rebellious leopard shifter Garrison Fredricks may be the answer to all her needs. Some sexy talk and a bit of action is just what the love fairy ordered. Only problem is he has a teensy-weensy little secret that may piss her off. And a Love Fairy pissed off is not a good thing.

Alastrina is a Love Fairy, on loan to Eros along with two of her friends, Lucy the Lust Fairy, and Dahlia, another Love Fairy. In the short time these three have been working for Eros, he has run them ragged. Trina is ready to drop, and decides to take a well deserved night on the town, heading to that infamous bar, Last Call for some R & R and escape.

Trina orders Chocolate Shock as her drink of choice, which is a call for hot and heavy sex with no strings. Garrison answers the call, but there is more to him than meets the eye. Garrison is a tiger shifter, and more than that, he is also an employee of Eros. Can Trina trust him once she discovers who his employer is? Will Garrison be able to finally end his servitude, or will his error of omission cause him to lose the best thing that ever happened to him-Trina?

I love my visits to this London bar. Last Call Europe is always a delight, and this story by Selena Illyria is no exception. Trina is such a wonderful creation, and the feelings she expresses when she thinks that Garrison had ulterior motives are very believable. The attraction these two feel almost instantly is so hot, it burns up the pages.

There are several hidden agendas in the story, but none are Garrison’s or Trina’s. I loved the lengths that Garrison went to in order to reach Trina to try and explain his feelings, and the trouble she put him through to punish him. And the final surprise is absolutely perfect; I really didn’t see that coming at all. The sex was imaginative and quite volcanic in its heat levels, but then I expect that from Selena Illyria’s stories.

If you are looking for an entertaining and HOT read, Last Call Europe: Chocolate Shock is the book for you.
