Book Review: At Last by Ella Stone

At Last by Ella Stone
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: April 3, 2013
Publisher: Self

Fate finally opened her eyes...

Groom dumps you at the altar? Fall in love with your hunky best friend.

When Susan is dumped at the altar--via cocktail napkin--it is up to her best friend Kevin to help her recover. After a brief post-wedding-that-wasn't coma, Susan finds herself in paradise, on her honeymoon, but with Kevin, not her groom. After some crying, paragliding, frozen margaritas and bad advice from her other best friend Liz, Susan decides to seduce Kevin and get rid of her pain with a rebound fling.

Kevin has secretly loved Susan for years and finally giving into her cuts him deeper than he could have expected.

He leaves her and severs all contact with her until six months later, when they are both vying for the same account--designing Chicago's new opera house.

Competition takes on a whole new meaning for Susan when Kevin shows up on the arm of her arch nemesis, the cougar Francesca Costa. She now must not only vie for the opera house...but for her best friend's heart as well.

Originally Published as Rebound.

At Last by Ella Stone is a quick and fun read. I don't know what it is about stories with best friends who become more, but I can't get enough of them. I liked Kevin immediately and wanted him happy, so I wasn't at all sad about Susan being dumped at the alter. Is that mean? Probably, but I don't care. Kevin is amazing and completely under appreciated by Susan. I really think he could do so much better, and he doesn't know it. He even puts up with crap from Susan's other best friend, who I'm not a big fan of. I tend to think Susan is pretty self absorbed. I know she got dumped at the alter, and that's bound to screw with your head, but how did she not realize what she had with Kevin long before this whole mess? I mean, it took him getting a six pack for her to notice him like that? Shallow Susan, shallow. Kevin made this story though. I was rooting for him from the beginning! I enjoyed the writing style of this author. The story flowed nicely and kept me interested. I would definitely read more books by this author.

I'm a closet figure skating addict, pizza lover, reader and writer, and a little bit perverted. I have the sexiest husband on earth--what can I say, I'm a sucker for a redhead.
