Being summoned home to be married is the last thing Vito Moretti expects. But before he can convince his father that he's not about to be chained down to any woman -- especially one he's never met -- Vito swings by Last Call for one more night of pure, unapologetic pleasure.

Margot LeFevre has a duty to uphold, and a mission to fulfill. And nothing would jeopardize both quicker than ordering a drink from Last Call's exotic menu. Still, she can't help but wonder what it would be like to be someone different, just for one night. Someone sexy, someone alluring, someone free to give in to the need for pleasure and pain that simmers inside her.

Lucky for her, she's about to find out.

Classy Bitch: Whore in designer clothing, ripe for the taking.

I've visited Last Call on numerous occasions. Okay, not in person... but you know what I mean. And each time I find a hot time. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's dark, but so far it's always been intense. This time was no different, and I can't wait to see more of this series.

Margot LeFevre is in control and classy in every way... on the surface. She walks the walk, and can even manage the talk, but deep down she needs more than she's ever found. Duty is something that drives this interesting woman, and to that end she will walk into another pack's palace and bind herself to someone she doesn't know or love becuase it is what is expected of her... tomorrow. Tonight she wants something for herself to hold onto in the future when she's left with duty.

Margot is an interesting character. I could completely relate with a woman who had been brought up with people she loved and trusted telling her that her inner desires and feelings were dirty. I could also see how that would finally make her snap and grab what pleasure she could with both hands before she had to go back to those expectations. I really enjoyed seeing her come out of her shell and let her inner goddess out. She thoroughly enjoyed every single thing Vito did to her. Lucky girl!

Vito Moretti is not a soft easy man. He's a warrior to the bone and as such he has... harder... darker desires and needs. He's perfectly content with the status quo: he travels around saving others from bad things, and on those travels he never has to worry about settling down or offending some female with his darker lusts. If she doesn't like his... darker side, no worries, he'll be gone in the morning. All that comes crashing down around him when he gets a summons from his father to come home... and get married to some woman he's never met. But he too understands duty, and so he heads home. What can it hurt to follow his libido to Last Call?

Vito is everything I love in an alpha hero. Some of you know I have a serious thing for shifters, and Vito is all I could hope for. Too bad he's not for me. I found Vito's inner dialogue to be rather amusing as he jumped between thinking he didn't care what women thought of him and knowing that something about Margot was just... different. His delight in her innocent enthusiasm for all he had to give was surprisingly endearing and so very hot. I loved this alpha... more please!

The only thing that keeps me from giving this book a full 5 cherry rating is something that others may not even notice but bugged me all the way through the end of the book. I could never figure out what exactly happened to Margot's clothing... one second she's still fully clothed if a bit disheveled... and the next she's naked... with no explanation of how it happened. It actually bugged me enough that even though I finished the book and smiled, I had to backtrack and figure out if I'd missed something. Call me picky, but I love those details of how these things happen. Beyond that, the writing was beautiful, and flowed extremely well from one moment to the next.

Last Call: Classy Bitch was another fun foray into the world of the Last Call bar. The fairy godmothers were an interesting group of characters and I'd love to see more of them... judging by the way things were left, I might get my wish! While I was never sure who exactly set the godmothers on Vito and Margot, it didn't really matter as the results were the same regardless. Hot sex, a beautiful beginning and a story that left me with a smile on my face. If you've never been introduced to Last Call, this story would be a good place to start... and even if you have, you know you want to visit again. Vito and Margot will make it worth your while... just leave your inhibitions at the door.
