Chef Luc Tessier and his English fiancé, Daniel Sheridan, are finally getting married in front of five hundred guests. If…if Luc can get his lover to stop obsessing over every little detail before they both go crazy. Daniel’s strangest idea is the worst for Luc and his libido – no sex for the six days prior to the wedding. How’s the hot-blooded Frenchman supposed to survive until his wedding night without going insane, especially when his best man pays a male stripper, hired for his bachelor party, to have sex with him?

Daniel’s dealing with Luc’s best man, who hates him, is annoyed with Luc’s constant need for sex and knows his parents hate him for being gay. He’s on the ragged edge of a breakdown and is so nervous, he needs to be sedated to walk down the aisle. If these two lovers can survive their Friday, the thirteenth wedding day, it’ll be a miracle.

The Last Supper is the final release in Scarlet Blackwell’s trilogy, Table for Two, and it takes up shortly after where the last release left off, making it important to read the books in order for maximum understanding. I’ve enjoyed all the books in this fast paced, fun series and I have to admit, I’m sorry to see it come to an end. It’s earned a place in my keeper file and I’ll definitely be re-reading them again in the future.

There’s nothing slow about the pace of The Last Supper. Its attention grabbing from the first page and it keeps the reader’s interest as it races through to the very last page. In between, it’s filled with great dialogue, interesting and well rounded characters, an obnoxious best man, sizzling hot sex, a few pre-wedding meltdowns and enough funny situations to keep the reader chuckling. Yes, everything that could go wrong with the wedding preparations just about does go wrong, but that only adds to the book’s overall charm. I’ve liked Luc and Daniel since they were introduced in Just Desserts and if anything, I like them even more here at the end. Read and enjoy!
