Three years ago Andrew Wilson and Flynn Barnett were in a relationship, until Flynn made a mistake that nearly cost Andrew his life. Andrew walked away from the FBI, his home, and his partner, and started over back in Montreal, running a restaurant.
Fast forward to the present and Andrew is knee-deep in preparations for his sister’s wedding. When an ex-colleague calls to ask for one last favor, the last person he expects to walk through his door is Flynn, in need of a place to stay. Only thing is, Andrew can’t say no.
Two weeks of wedding hijinks bring back all the old feelings that have simmered below the surface. Caught in a cycle of fighting and making up, the two men try to figure out if there’s anything they can salvage. And even if there is, Andrew can’t be sure this time will be any different.
If I needed just one word to describe this book it would be sweet. The Last Favor, in my opinion, was a sweet book. However, that wasn’t the reason I requested it at the time. Let me explain why. Andy and Flynn are (at the beginning) both FBI agents. Only at the beginning there’s FBI-action. As an action, danger, adrenaline lover I kinda expected to see more of it, but that didn’t alter my liking of this book.
At the first pages we get to see how Andy and Flynn met, and in a few pages they were partners in and out of work, and in another few pages everything went to hell and they broke apart. Then the present story begins.
Andrew moved back to his country, Canada, and with help from his family decided to do a 180 and open a restaurant of all things. His sister will be marrying her high-school sweetheart in a couple weeks, and Andy’s staying with his parents to help with the upcoming wedding. And that’s when he gets a call from an old, still FBI friend. With one last favor to pay, Andy accepts to receive an ex agent at his parent’s place. He’s well surprised when that agent turns out to be Flynn.
Flynn is the type of guy who will do something shitty and won’t apologize for it, at least not in i-am-sorry words. That isn’t so bad, because it makes him kinda quirky. Flynn is in actually funny without trying. It took him three years to realize Andrew wasn’t going to come back to him, so he decided to go after the man who left him behind and never called to ask how he was doing.
Flynn f*ucked up royally in the past. He let his emotions overrule his common sense and work ethics, which in the end almost cost the life of the man he loved.
80% of this book happened at present time, with the ex-FBI agents trying to mend their broken relationships and hearts. I liked how they didn’t rush into things, and decided to take it easy. I also loved Andrew’s family, they gave me a good laugh at some parts of the story and made me wish they would adopt me!
The Last Favor was pretty short, and I read it in one sitting. I just felt like this book was part of a series, and this one was the second or so, and something big-cliffhanger-like happened at the first, and in this they’re working on solving, on a complete different environment from the first book. The story ended, and I felt like it should have more. The wedding was perfect, but I was sad to see there weren’t any bad guys crashing in and making some hostages. LOL, though!
It was also a nice surprise that when they finally ended up in bed it turned out Andy was pretty dominant, and not the other way around. Their personalities hinted pretty much the opposite. Surprises are always welcome, good or bad, since they keep the story going, and this one was way too yummy.
