Give every guy who hits on you his number.
That’s what I did when I met Silas.
Little did I know, we’d see each other again.
One run-in leads to another.
One fake date leads to a friendship.
That friendship leads to feelings.
But everyone knows feelings and friendship doesn’t mix.
We’re too much the same.
It’d never work out.
That changes when one of us asks for more.
Everything falls apart.
There’s no going back.
Can our friendship survive … or will love destroy us?
Ever since I read Stirred, I’ve been looking forward to reading and meeting the rest of the Twisted Fox crew. Sadly, I didn’t get around to doing that before reading this book, but that doesn’t matter! The only thing you’re going to be spoiled for are the couples that get together, but even that is not the end of the world. You still get to be part of this group without having read all the books in the series, but I would definitely recommend picking the others up before you dive into Last Round.
The final book in the Twisted Fox series follows Lola Delgado and Silas Malone, two people who are the complete opposite of each other. One flirting session at the bar leads to Lola giving Silas the wrong number, a fake date to make up for it and a barbecue that changes the course of their lives forever. Lola and Silas have the most interesting relationship because their initial reaction to each other is to sleep together and get that out of the way. But when one thing leads to another and they both realise that it’s not going to work out and they’re not going to be anything more than just friends – they draw the line.
These characters are great! I loved how confident, independent and badass Lola is. She doesn’t take anything from anyone and she fights for everything she wants. Her friends are more important to her than anything – which includes Silas – but she’s slightly broken and jaded from the complicated relationship that her parents let her witness. Lola’s not looking for romance and she’s not afraid to tell people to back off if she’s not interested. Silas is just as amazing, but he’s got a lot of darkness in his past and he’s been struggling to get past that. He’s also watched his parents’ marriage fall apart and Silas has zero interest in love after the one time he let himself feel that way. He’s cocky and charming, Silas is an incredible hero.
Their relationship is a whole series of ups and downs. And while I liked it for the most part, I felt like it was just too messy to fully enjoy. There were a lot of secrets that were kept and communication was a little confusing. I feel like a lot of their issues and the struggles could have been resolved a lot sooner instead of going through the complicated and messy parts of their friendship. The time jump also threw me a little, but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story. I liked that even though they started out flirty, Lola and Silas give their friendship a chance and they fully dive into that and enjoy it as much as possible. But even that line was a little confusing at times.
All said and done, I loved seeing all the characters I loved in Stirred and now I’m even more excited to read the rest of the books and find my favourite Twisted Fox couple.
