Aric Christian is a nerdy science major with a terrible secretóheís becoming a vampire.  He spends all his time trying to find a cure, but as yet he has been unsuccessful.  Then, after an accidental brush with a football, he meets star football player Stu Hamilton.  To his annoyance, he keeps running into the man.

Stu comes from a long line of vampire slayers.  Realizing what Aricís up against, heís determined to help, but the prickly man wonít let him.  Will Stu and Aric figure out how to save Aric before itís too late?

Last Chance features an unusual and fascinating form of vampire, different from anything Iíve ever read.  The race against time to save Aric was also an interesting twist.  Aric himself was a puzzle, both prickly and vulnerable.  Stuís also multi-faceted.  He seems like nothing more than an easygoing jock, but he has hidden depths.  Unfortunately, something about Last Chance just fell flat for me.  Aricís resistance to a relationship with Stu, and Stuís help with his problem, started to grate on my nerves after a while.  Everything happened a bit too fast, leaving me wishing for more world- and relationship-building.  I also found, at the end, that the tortured vampire Johan was the most interesting character and I wanted to read more about him (Hint, hint to Viki Lyn, lol).  That said, those looking for a different spin on vampire lore will find Last Chance well worth a read.
