Missed Connections #1

Author: Jeffe Kennedy


It was five minutes. His hand on the small of her back. His eyes watching like there was no one else in the crowded club. His body a breath away from hers. A kiss full of heat and need and promise.

But then the stranger disappears. And Charlotte Emory can’t forget him. Worse, according to the dating Rules she and her four best friends swear by, all she can do is post an ad online. No names, no numbers. Just a missed connection – and the hope he’ll meet her, and see where another dance leads.

Except Mr. Mystery has his game, too, and he isn’t playing for only one night. He tempts Charley into a daring exploration of power, lust, and suspense, where even the most innocent requests sound indecent…and the indecent ones make her burn all night.

If she plays by the Rules, they’ll never get past teasing each other. But rules were made to be broken…





I’ve read several of Jeffe Kennedy’s works before and I’ve yet to come across one that I haven’t enjoyed. Last Dance is book one in the Missed Connections series. It kept me turning the pages, I just needed to find out who this mystery man was.

Charley and her group of friends have a set of Rules that they have to follow when it comes to men. The Rules are set in place for the good of the group. I found this a fun little addition to the storyline. Charley realizes that she doesn’t want to follow the Rules when it comes to her Mystery Man. She had to place a missed connections ad in order to find him and ends up going on several dates with him. He makes her feel something, something serious and it terrifies her. Although she’s not ready to admit her growing feelings, she keeps playing his games, for now.

This was a fun and entertaining book to read. I loved how there was so much that you didn’t know about the hero of the story. That aspect of the novel really gets you involved in the story, continuing to read just to get answers. This book is a wonderful combination of secrets, curiosity and lust. I can’t wait for more from the Missed Connections series!
