Anna Eliot is tired of worrying about what other people think. After all, that was how she lost the only guy she ever really liked, Finn Westbrook.

Now, three years after she broke his heart, the one who got away is back in her life.

All Anna wants is a chance to relive their last kiss again (and again and again). But Finn obviously hasn’t forgotten how she treated him, and he’s made it clear he has no interest in having anything to do with her.

Anna keeps trying to persuade herself that she doesn’t care about Finn either, but even though they’ve both changed since they first met, deep down she knows he’s the guy for her. Now if only she can get him to believe that, too....

THE LAST BEST KISS was the second novel that I read by CLAIRE LAZEBNIK . I fell in love with first novel I read by her TROUBLE WITH FLIRTING, so I had set high expectations for this novel. Unfortunately I found myself disappointed because I ended up not enjoying this novel like I figured I would. Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy this novel but not like I did with her other one. I actually felt like this one dragged more than it should have. Top of that, it didn’t have as much romance as I thought that it would. I felt like it talked more about her and her friends and her family, then the romance and maybe that’s why it was a bit slow for me. I found out more about her friends, her family then the relationship. THE LAST BEST KISS didn’t turn out like I imagined it would.

I found it hard to feel sorry for Anna, especially considering how she treated Finn in the past, how she hurt him. I didn’t think that he would give her another chance, considering how he acted with her at start, there was no way. At same time, I couldn’t see him with Lily either, she was so different from him. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what he saw in her. I wondered if he actually liked Lily or it was some way to make Anna jealous. Lily was one of those characters that I tried so hard to like, but I couldn’t seem to find it in me to like her for some reason. One minute she kissing Finn, next she dumping him, it was as if she couldn’t make up her mind or got bored. It had me wonder if she actually liked him.

I did enjoy the book, there were some parts is what kept me on reading the book, to finish the book. Despite fact how Anna treated Finn in past, I did like the bond that Finn and Anna had. How they were there for one another after Lily’s accident, despite her accident. How they both told Lily about their feelings for one another because they wanted make sure she was okay with it. I feel like neither of them got over each other. It was like Finn did come back for her and to try start over again. I got admit that both the cover and the title is one of the things that attracted my attention to this book. Despite the slow part, it was enjoyable book.
