THE LAST GUY
By Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise
Publication Date: June 12th
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
The first rule of office romance is don’t do it—especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.
But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.
Sex in his office…
Sex in the on-set kitchen…
Sex in the supply closet…
She can’t stop thinking about the former NFL quarterback and how perfect he’d look between her sheets—except he’s an arrogant jerk with a huge… ego.
He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.
Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance—until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.
It’s just a hook-up, she says.
When can we do it again? he says.
With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.
THE LAST GUY is the first white-hot CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC COMEDY from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise. It features Fireball-fueled hookups, Doritos Locos Tacos, attack monkeys, toddlers in tiaras, and one fabulous drag queen. Prepare for frantic clicking (or page flipping!) and smoking-hot sexytimes all the way to the out-of-this-world happily-ever-after.

“The dream is not the destination but the journey.”
That’s a hard lesson for Rebecca Fieldstone to learn because her dream job…her end game has always been to obtain the news anchor position for KHOT News. Rebecca’s put in the time, the effort, and is damn good at her job regardless of how underappreciated she seems to be by one of her bosses.
AND, Rebecca sure as heck can’t get romantically involved with one of her co-workers because she won’t allow anything or anyone to ruin her quest for stardom. So regardless of how sexy and attractive Cade Hill, the sports director, is, Rebecca refuses to give into her lust fueled feelings…too bad she couldn’t rationalize that idea due to one too many Fireballs and one filthy talking ex-NFL superstar.
The Last Guy is the perfect kind of romantic comedy. Both Rebecca and Cade are extremely likable characters, and even though they’re co-workers, which makes any kind of relationship a bit forbidden, that’s not what drives their story line because as Cade so eloquently describes it to Rebecca, they’re working on their own story, which is just as or even more important than the ones delivered on the news each day.
Rebecca may seem like a hot mess, but she’s an endearing one because it’s easy to see the passion she has for delivering the news and with her trademark wink and pencil skirt, she definitely knows the kind of persona she needs to be successful at her job. Things may go a bit sideways throughout the story when it comes to proving herself to her boss, but even through those trials, her professionalism never sways…in fact, if it were me, I probably would have gone off on quite a few of the employees of WHOT News.
Cade may come from money and his NFL career definitely helped pave the way to his job as sports director, but it wasn’t just handed to him and he’s more than just a dumb jock who discusses sports with other dumb jocks. He’s intelligent and compassionate and he knows way more than some people give him credit for, and while Rebecca’s disinterest in him intrigues as well as baffles him, he knows there’s so much more to the “prickly, uptight” newsgirl than she willingly shows and he’s all about finding out the things that make her who she is, both in and outside the newsroom;)
The behind-the-scenes look into the ins and outs of a news station is incredibly important for Rebecca and Cade’s story. In this “competitive, appearance-driven field,” nepotism exists, and people’s best efforts aren’t always awarded due to the nature of the profession and the need to keep things fresh and current. Ratings are what drives this business and with that focus in mind, decisions are made that may cost them a lot more than simply their ranking.
I also have to give a shout-out to Rebecca’s best friend, Chas, and Cade’s brother, Trent; their engaging personalities added the right amount of comic relief in certain situations that allowed both Rebecca and Cade to relax a bit and not make everything so taxing.
Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise created a world all about commercialism and contemporary news and issues, and in doing so, they not only illustrated the complex workings of a newsroom but also a much needed lesson – one about going after something a person wants regardless of the difficulties or roadblocks that stand in the way.
