Tough as barbed-wire cowgirl, Natalie Camden, lives by only one rule – trust no one.
Former Green Beret, Aaron Weber, is sexier than sin and twice as dangerous. He’s also war-weary and broken.
His friendship with Natalie has always been complicated.
He knows there are secrets she keeps hidden under that tough-girl façade. He also knows there is a more than enough soft heat and raw need deep within her to keep him satisfied.
When she asks Aaron to add benefits to their friendship, he agrees with a few conditions.
He’ll take her virginity all for himself and then teach her the power of submission.
She’ll show him how to loosen the binds of control he clings to.
The last thing either of them expected was the passion-ignited flashfire that burns bright enough to illuminate both of their dark pasts.
Aaron vows to find and destroy the man who hurt her.
Natalie seeks to understand the details of the mission that shattered him.
When her past threatens to make a reappearance on Camden Ranch, can she learn to trust him enough to keep her safe?
This is where I normally put a tongue-in-cheek warning about my sexy cowboys. While, Last Call, like all of the Camden Ranch novels that have come before it, has lots and lots of bed-breaking love scenes (no, seriously, there is a broken bed) it also deals with a few other things.
These are things I want to make certain none of my beloved readers might trigger from. This book deals with both Post Traumatic Stress from Aaron Weber’s missions in the Middle East and from the sexual abuse Natalie Camden endured during her childhood.
I tried with everything I am to handle each of these issues with a tremendous amount of respect, sympathy, grace, and dignity and I made certain there are no graphic descriptions of either event.
I always want my novels to be a sexy escape (and never to cause anyone any pain) so I wanted to make certain my readers are aware of what they’ll find between the covers of this book – one sizzling hot former Green Beret, one strong and sassy cowgirl, sexual discovery and erotic intimacy, every single member of the Camden family, a lot of laughter, a few heart wrenching moments, and a tremendous amount of healing and strength.

I'm moving to the Camden Ranch
Every book Jillian Neal has written has been loaded with passion, love and emotion that will leave you crying, smiling, laughing and just wanting more! You will find yourself loving each character and families in each of her books. The way she writes is just amazing. I truly love her books and can not wait for her next book!
Last Call is book #5 of the Camden Ranch series. This is story is about Natalie and Aaron. Natalie Camden is a tough cowgirl who doesn't put up with anything or anybody, she has to after all she's been through. Aaron Weber is a sexy former Green Beret with mysterious tattoos but that's not all that mysterious about him. He has some problems that he has been trying to work on.
Natalie and Aaron have been for awhile but because of their pasts they both learn that they do need eachother. They both try to ignore their past only to find out that the past can and will show its ugly face back up. With love, friends and family, they both find out it's ok to ask and get help for whatever it may be.
This book deals with real emotions that we all or have dealt with. It can teach us that it is ok to depend on someone, talk to someone, seek help and no matter how bad it is, you will always have someone there for you who will listen and/or help. You just have to take that first step and ask.
Thank you Jillian for another great book! I enjoyed it so much. If you haven't read any of her books and looking for a good book, I highly recommend this book!! But I also recommend all her books.
It doesn't matter how many holes are in the waffle it does have two sides.
I just loved Natalie and Aaron’s story. (The first line had me cracking up for a solid 5 minutes , I did not expect that) It deals with both PTSD for Aaron and Sexual Abuse for Natalie. Do not worry it doesn’t go into great graphic details, you just get small snippets and the rest is left for your imagination or beliefs about what happened.
I am in a way proud of Natalie for giving Aaron a chance to help her heal and “get over” what she has been though. I love that the two are wholly there for each and want to help protect each other heal, even if they go about it in the wrong way.
I found myself laughing and close to tears several times. I also love how the Camden’s back Aaron up and participate with him and the Sevens to get Natalie back. I loved the proposal and the wedding and the mending of fences. Needless to say I enjoyed every minute of this tale.
Now for that epilogue…I found my self curious and somewhat confused…Way to leave us guessing!!!!!!!! I can not wait to see what Mrs. Neal has in store for us readers next.
Like all of Jillian's books I highly recommend you giving this series as well as her other series a try.
If you are looking to read this please know this is book 5 in the Camden Ranch Series. Book 0.5 is Coincidental Cowgirl, Book 1 is Rodeo Summer, Book 2 is Forever Wild, Book 3 is Cowgirl Education, Book 4 is Un-Hitched and This book Last Call makes the 5th book in the series.
Jillian has two other book series you might want to check out, they are The Realm Series, and her Gypsy Beach Series (Brock and Hope’s story starts in the 4th Gypsy Beach series- Gypsy Hope). All of Jillian's books leave me wanting more and believing in true love.
