SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED (Last Call #5) by Sawyer Bennett

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date March 17, 2015

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.


REVIEW: SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED is the fifth installment in Sawyer Bennett’s breathtaking, adult, contemporary Last Call erotic romance series focusing on a tight knit group of family and friends from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This is former Marine, motorcycle mechanic and cowboy Tenn Jennings, and bartender/real estate agent Casey Markham’s storyline-Casey is Hunter’s (On The Rocks) and Brody’s (Make it a Double) younger sister. SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED can be read as a stand alone storyline although all of the previous storyline couples play a secondary and supporting role throughout the novel. I would suggest reading the series from the beginning for the pleasure and enjoyment.

The focus of the storyline follows Tenn (a divorced father of one) as he considers a permanent move to North Carolina to be closer to his teenaged daughter Zoey. Agreeing to a road trip with his buddy Kyle Somerville, while Kyle visits his sister Andrea (With A Twist #4), Tenn will come face to face with his future-Casey Markham-a woman whose past has hardened her heart to relationships, rich men and love. What ensues is Tenn’s pursuit of Casey as Casey tries desperately not to fall in love. Our couple will encounter a few anxious moments when Casey’s past returns for a visit, and Tenn’s emergency call home will leave Casey wondering if her heart will be broken-once again.

The relationship between Casey and Tenn is one of immediate attraction. They first met along the road when Casey’s tire got a flat, and Tenn had no idea that this woman would call to his heart and soul. Casey’s experience with men has left her jaded; and with a reputation amongst her family and friends. Casey doesn’t do love; doesn’t do relationships; and especially doesn’t date the man with a bad boy reputation. Finding herself in a relationship is nothing short of scary. The $ex scenes are intimate, emotional and intense. There is something to say about a man with a goatee and the sensitive side of a woman’s flesh.

The secondary and supporting characters include all of the previous storyline couples including Butch and Lillian Markham-Hunter, Brody and Casey’s parents.. We get up close and personal with family, friends and what it means to have the support of the people you love. Tenn’s daughter Zoey is an amazing young woman whose desire to live with her father may see a change in direction for Tenn and Casey. The reader is introduced to Andrea’s brother Kyle Somerville, as well as Tenn’s younger brother Woolf Jennings. I suspect we will see a storyline for each of these smexy men.

There is a slight cross over with Sawyer Bennett’s OFF series with the inclusion of Nix Caldwell and the love of his life Emily Burnham (Off Limits #2). Nix is a former Marine buddy of Tenn’s and Tenn is considering opening a motorcycle shop in North Carolina with the help of Nix and his ability to weld metal and build bikes.

The world building continues to focus on the THE LAST CALL-Hunter Caldwell’s bar-where family and friends gather after a hard day’s work. Brody and Hunter are very protective of their baby sister and in this there is some back and forth between the brothers and Tenn Jennings.

Sawyer Bennett writes characters about whom we can relate; their storylines are believable, imaginative and provocative. You can feel the heartbreak and the emotional struggles; the love and the promise of a happily ever after. Congratulations to Sawyer on another fantastic addition to her LAST CALL series.

He left to travel the world for fame and glory, but only after spurning Gabby Ward and crushing her young heart. Now Hunter Markham has come back home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open up Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.

Gabby Ward is not happy that Hunter has returned. Bitter over his rebuff years before, she’s content to stay far away from him and his dangerously charming ways.

Gabby’s well-schemed plans to ignore Hunter go up in flames when he presents an offer to her that she simply can’t refuse, throwing them together in a common quest to each reach their goals. Working together day in and day out proves to be problematic for Gabby, who soon realizes that the feelings she had for him are still very much alive. Hunter struggles to reach through to Gabby’s cold heart, all while starting a new career away from his life as a top ranked, professional surfer.

What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither of them can continue to deny.

Hard choices lay ahead for both of them when Hunter is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to return to the pro surfing tour.

Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they ever had dared to hope.

Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he’s back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn’t recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.

Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can’t buy.

Maybe it’s that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.

While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he’s not willing to accept the light that she offers him.
