One Last Stop|Review

One Last Stop – Published 2021

“For cynical twenty-three-year-old August, moving to New York City is supposed to prove her right: that things like magic and cinematic love stories don’t exist, and the only smart way to go through life is alone. She can’t imagine how waiting tables at a 24-hour pancake diner and moving in with too many weird roommates could possibly change that. And there’s certainly no chance of her subway commute being anything more than a daily trudge through boredom and electrical failures.

But then, there’s this gorgeous girl on the train.

Jane. Dazzling, charming, mysterious, impossible Jane. Jane with her rough edges and swoopy hair and soft smile, showing up in a leather jacket to save August’s day when she needed it most. August’s subway crush becomes the best part of her day, but pretty soon, she discovers there’s one big problem: Jane doesn’t just look like an old school punk rocker. She’s literally displaced in time from the 1970s, and August is going to have to use everything she tried to leave in her own past to help her. Maybe it’s time to start believing in some things, after all.” – Goodreads

QUICK THOUGHTS

Thank you to Libro.fm for the ALC of this book!

I think I am one of the last people on booksta to read a book by this author, but we’re reading Red, White & Royal Blue for book club in July!

I’ll be honest when I say that this one was hard for me to get into at first. It is hard for me to suspend reality for something that reads like a realistic fiction novel. However, I really did enjoy this book. I loved August and Jane’s chemistry and evolving relationship. I loved the roommates and pancake restaurant as well as the subway element. It’s really, really good. And it’s steamy.
