Six years ago strangers broke into Juliette’s house; she was home alone and only thirteen. She kept her eyes closed, praying that if she didn’t see anything, she wouldn’t be killed. No one harmed her. In fact, one of the thieves protected her. Now Juliette’s dreams are haunted by him. Christian has waited to take her, resisting the urge each night. It always ends badly with human pets. They’re too fragile. The longer he can wait, the better, because the moment he takes her, the clock on her life starts ticking down. Then she’ll be gone forever.
Warning: This book is dark erotica meant for a mature audience only.

**Summary taken from Goodreads**
You know you've read a Kitty Thomas book when you're left a little stirred up, feeling better about your own brand of kink and with a head full of fuckedupness! She's good like that, gets right into your brain, in the part you keep all locked up for fear the normal folk will discover your weirdness for the special sexy time she writes about and she draws it all out. One perverse sentence at a time.
I loved The Last Girl. Christian was this side of twisted and sadistic and a little crazy. And a vampire! Oh yes. FINALLY a vampire story written from my favourite dark erotic author. His arrogance oozes from the page until you think you can't like this character. You just can't! But hell if I did. There is an old charm about him, I found him amusing at times and I could definitely see the attraction Juliette felt towards him, even when she was utterly paralyzed with fear for the vampire too.
I don't usually enjoy first tense stories, I find my brain wanders too much or tries to translate it to third tense. But for this book it works well, it puts you right in the moment with Juliette from the first time she encounters him when him and his vampire buddies break into her house and she knows she's going to die, her dibilitating fear leeches out until you're holding your breath with her. I loved that.
Most of The Last Girl is told from Juliette's POV, I would have liked more of Christian's sick mind too, but that's just me as a reader and fan of the author being greedy.
"He knows I locked the door to keep him out. I’m prey, hiding, hoping the predator with thebig, sharp teeth doesn’t smell me."
“You waited for six years to take me. You watched me and listened to my thoughts. Why would you harbor such a fixation only to kill me in less than a day?”
He is both the disease and the cure.
Another brilliant story from an author I will and do always recommend to my more open minded reader friends. And to some of the vanilla's that need some hardcore delicious sexy time on their reading shelves. (heh)
I give The Last Girl by Kitty Thomas 4 sparkles out of 5! Fangtastic!
