Title: The Last Resort Motel: Room Ten
Author: Crystal Perkins
Genre: Romantic Comedy w/ PNR Elements
Release Date: February 8, 2018
Devin and Devon are looking for adventure and yeah, some ghosts. Why else would they head out to the middle of nowhere and The Last Resort Motel? Those ghost hunters on TV make it look wicked cool and if they don’t see a ghost, well at least they can keep busy in other ways.
When the ghosts turn out to be more than they bargained for and the motel owner and her boyfriend don’t believe them, they’ll have to get rid of the spirits on their own. If they can make it out of this without being violated or consumed, maybe it’s time to grow up and realize what they have together is stronger than they could have ever imagined.
This was an enjoyable installment for this series, although with the main characters having the same name, I have to admit it took a bit out of the story because I had to remember which one of the two spelled their name differently, and there were a couple of parts where it wasn't clear which character was leading the conversation. Since this isn't an overly long book, it doesn't take long for the paranormal element to kick in. I wasn't surprised by who the paranormal elements are, but the things that happen because of said elements were a bit surprising, and at least one incident wasn't fully explained. And for all of the skepticism on the side of Aurora and Max, the way the paranormal elements were handled, and by who, I wasn't expecting. I like the way the story wrapped up, and how the Devs were able to help out the Last Resort Motel in such a positive way.
I grab the soda, water, and beer and walk to the door. When I open it, it slams right back shut. I try to pull on it but it’s sealed tight. Shit.
“Dev?”I force my voice to sound calm as I answer her. Inside, I’m feeling like a small tree shaking in the wind, afraid it’s going to fall over. “I don’t think we’re leaving right now.”

Crystal Perkins has always been a big reader, but she never thought she would write her own book, until she sat down and did it one day. She lives in Las Vegas, where you can find her running author events when she isn’t reading, buying too many Sherlock t-shirts and anything Wonder Woman, or finding a place to put all of her Pop! figurines. In 2016, she won the Creative Initiatives Award from Romantic Times for encouraging literacy, and also the Community Advocate Award from the Clark County School Librarians Association. A mac and cheese connoisseur, she travels the country looking for the perfect version, while attending book conventions and signings as a cover for her research. The Griffin Brothers, Corrigan & Co., and the Society Girls series are all international best sellers, and she’s thankful to the readers who made that happen.
