Publisher's Summary

It was a day like any other day for Marina Trahan...until she caught her husband in bed with another woman. Before that eye-opening wake-up call, Marina would have described her life as average or uneventful, maybe even boring. But now, chaos and confusion reign supreme. She’d expected to slide through midlife with her unwanted extra pounds, chin hair, and hot flashes and move somewhat gracefully into elastic-waist pants and having no verbal filter. But with a wayward husband, a high-maintenance daughter, a lackluster career, and a crazy mother all weighing her down, Marina is ready to wave the white flag of surrender. 

Then an intriguing stranger named Alexios shows up out of nowhere and insists she is descended from a goddess and is the only person who can save the world from certain destruction. She has roughly a week to do it. Solving a centuries-old mystery seems like a more interesting proposition than the other situations Marina is facing, so she accepts his challenge. But her search for a magical item of power reveals far more about Marina than she ever knew. Maybe enough to save the world. And even herself.

Marina & Last Change = fun, suspense and romance.

Marina maybe on the wrong side of 40 yet delievers a story in Last Chance LA which will have you speeding thru the book to the last page. Marina has a life most of us can relate. She works hard at her job and for family. Life changes after getting off work early and leads to a chaotic, suspenseful and thrilling time.

Looking forward to #2 in the series.

Marina is the best ! Even with all she had going on with Harold, helping Alex and her daughter Avery she stuck to who she was and in the end .....well you ave to read/listen to the book to find out! This was an amazing story of self discovery, forming new friendships and realizing you should love who you are.💜

So good!

I can't stress how much I loved this book. As a woman in her forties, it was just awesome to have a heroine that is also in her forties in such a positive light. The narrator did a wonderful job. I'm really looking forward to new books in the series and listening to this one again.

OMG horrible narration, didn't finish 1st chapter

sample did not indicate the poor narration. love this author but Audible needs to significantly improve narrators. Cassandra Campbell was definitely better for this author's style. I can't review the story or overall because I couldn't tolerate the voice and get past the first 3 pages

Boring....

First, my respects to the narrator, but it's almost unbearable to hear. Second, nothings happens, for chapters, I found myself skipping them and finding very little had changed. Do not recommend it. Love the Shaye Archer series but will not be coming back to this one.
