5.0 out of 5 starsIt was fun reading Alyssa and Brandt’s story
Reviewed in the United States on October 19, 2017
It was fun reading Alyssa and Brandt’s story. I liked how passionate Alyssa was about her feelings for Brandt. (Spoiler). Alyssa is certain Brandt likes her just as much as she likes him, but he keeps her at arms’ length because she’s his best friend’s sister. Before her brother goes away on his honeymoon, he asks Brandt to watch over Alyssa. Brandt finds the task difficult when Alyssa asked him to have a two-week affair while her brother is away. Alyssa is certain this will help Brandt come to his senses and admit that he wants her just as much as she wants him. When the affair comes to a close, Brandt just walks away. Alyssa is crushed. What she doesn’t know is Brandt has his own inner turmoil as to why he can’t be with her…aside from the the fact that she is the sister of his best friend. I won’t spoil it further. I’ll just say I really enjoyed the story, and once again, I found myself smiling at the end.
Alyssa is that friend who will tell you like it is, building up your confidence. Yet under it all, she's struggling with her own issues and quirks. She's head strong...and honest...and flawed....and <i>real</i>.
And of course, it can't be a romance without her handsome love interest. Brandt (I love that name!) is just as flawed as Alyssa. But he's the protector. Loyal and probably his own worst critic.
But these two together? SWOONSVILLE. Bonus points for the best-friend's-sister trope!
Ms. Marti does a great job of taking us on a journey of two characters that many of us can relate to, who want so badly to be loved, but don't believe it's meant to be. Well written with great banter, this is a must-read! NOTE: While it is the 2nd novel in a series, it can be read as a stand alone.
5.0 out of 5 starsAt Last! Another book from Claire!

Who doesn’t relate to Alyssa Morgan? A shy gangly girl who has a crush on the bad boy? Yum! Brandt Dempsey (so flippin’ hot) has a heartbreaking story that makes you tear up while you’re clutching your kindle. Nothing makes me read into the night more than a sexy bad boy with a dark childhood. He is a perfect combination of brooding and sensitive for our girl. And Alyssa is so snarky – her sense of humor cracked me up! The author has really grown in her style adding loads more angst and toe-curling heat. The beginning made me laugh out loud and Kevin? The little boy? So darn sweet- and Kevin really gave Brandt a lot to think about regarding his own childhood. This story provides the reader with a glimpse at the lovers from Second Chance in Laguna - Nick and Sophie - and is fast paced and fun to read. I highly recommend this book!

I was lucky enough to stumble across the 1st book in this series months ago, Second Chance in Laguna, which caused me to yearn for the release of the 2nd book, At Last in Laguna. I live in Southern CA and the landscape of this book is what originally attracted me. I immediately fell in love with the characters in both of the books in the series and can't wait for the third release! I find not much time to read with 2 small children and a full-time career. These books were both read within 2 days' time! I couldn't put either of them down! The sensual and tempestuous relationship between Alyssa and Brandt was addicting and made it difficult for me to put the book down. I highly recommend At Last in Laguna to anyone looking for a fun and flirty read. I can't wait for the 3rd book in the series to be released!
5.0 out of 5 starsEmotionally intense fast-paced 5 star read

I just finished AT LAST IN LAGUNA in one sitting - I couldn’t put it down. I’d been eagerly awaiting Brandt and Alyssa’s story since I finished SECOND CHANCE IN LAGUNA. I loved that their story started at Nick and Sophie’s wedding.
Alyssa and Brandt’s story was emotionally intense with some dark twists and turns. The author balanced out the angst with laugh-out-loud humor. I loved Alyssa, she’s snarky and clever. Brandt’s story touched my heart and under his cool guy exterior, he’s a sweetheart. The passion between these two is smoldering and sexy and I’ll never look at a conference table the same way.
Claire Marti is an author to watch. I’m ready to preorder book 3. Highly recommend!
