Last Light by M. Pierce Review


5 Smooches

Matt Sky is missing. After a solo ascent of Longs Peak that only a large blood stain, tatters of climbing clothing, and the tracks of an animal in the snow, he is presumed dead …

Hannah Catalano is guarding a secret …

Tensions rise, secrets grow bigger, and passions run deeper in the highly anticipated second book in the Night Owl Trilogy.


I was crazy ecstatic when I received an arc of Last Light to review.  Night Owl is one of my very favorite erotic novels and I was literally dying to get my hands on Last Light.  I waited so long for more of Matt and Hannah.  I vowed to myself that I would savior it; take my time reading it and absorb every small nuance.  Instead, I read it all in one day and then was sad the rest of the night because it was over.  It grabbed me from the very first page.  At first I wanted to know what the hell was going on.  Then I was waiting.  Just waiting and waiting for the inevitable.  Disaster.

Last Light One

Nothing good can from the situation that Matt Sky has put himself in.  I did not think it was possible for me to think that Matt was any more insane than he was in Night Owl, but surprise, he just got a whole lot crazier and poor Hannah has followed him down a path of pure destruction.

And now I know how he valued his privacy.  Above me, above his family, above everything.

It seems that my adorably awkward Matt Sky is still so very very self destructive.  It was almost unbearable to watch it all play out before my eyes.  This poor damaged man had my stomach in knots almost the entire book.

He is still unbelievably sexy and bossy but this time, he is just so desperate.  He made me very sad.

A psycho, they called me.  They were right.  They were wrong.  They couldn’t come close to my fire.  They couldn’t touch my heart.  

While Matt was the star of Night Owl, for me, Hannah took center stage in Last Light.  I loved her character so much more this book.  She was submissive, dominant, and nuclear in her anger and outrage.  It was amazing.  It was all “I am woman, hear me roar”.

She gave no ground, took no excuses.  She saw straight through me.  Magnificent.

She was sexy and spunky while still being grounded and reliable and normal in comparison to Matt’s chaotic behavior.

Last Light 2


Her inner dialogue captivated me.

His desire and my degradation were white-hot pleasure for us both.  My desire and his degradation were the same.

And, as usual, these two together were combustible in their chemistry; smoking hot and such an incredible turn-on.

I moaned, my voice a hoarse cry, and I rubbed out the whole of my pleasure against his mouth, and it was fire and heaven all over again.  That garden where only he took me.

There passion wasn’t just hot and steamy.  It was beautiful; M. Pierces words poetic and erotic beyond all reason.  Every sex scene (and there were plenty) kept me engaged and blushing and feeling so much!  M’s words make me crazy swoony!

Last Light 3

To make matters more trying for Matt and Hannah this time around (as if Matt isn’t trying enough) enter a completely new character; Seth Sky.  Whew…holy hot damaged rock god!  I might  hate Seth.  I might love him.  I think I am going to mostly love to hate him.  All I know is the boy may need his own book…like yesterday.

Who took care of this wild boy?  It could never be me.  I had my own wild boy to take care of.

(Ohh, me, me!)

Last Light really blew me away.  Usually the second book in a trilogy does not keep me as engaged as the first.  Generally, I just do not love the second book as much, but I really loved Last Light.  It was just as good as Night Owl, if not better.  It totally “sings”.  This book had mystery, love, angst, and loads and loads of sexy time.  The ending, well, it was happy, for now. No telling what M has up his sleeve next!  😉

“Love is as strong as death,” right?
