Can first love ever be reignited?

One Last Shot concludes the trilogy of Freddie and Jo-Jo, which has moved through time in a series of  flashbacks, showing how the couple fell in love as teenagers, why they drifted apart, what happened in their lives away from each other, and what happens when they meet up again over three decades later.

At the end of the second book, An Extra Shot, Jo-Jo tells Freddie about her dark secret. Confused, vulnerable and in a state of shock, he needs time to think about what to do next. Jo-Jo is right to be worried. Freddie doesn’t react well.

Stephen Anthony Brotherton was born in Walsall and grew up in the West Midlands. He now lives in Telford, Shropshire and is an alumni of Staffordshire, Keele and Wolverhampton universities. He qualified as a social worker and worked in health and social care for over thirty years. This story is semi-autobiographical and is based on a first love relationship that he had at a similar age to the teenage Freddie and Jo-Jo.

  1. Amazon reviewer

    Great series. I have now read all three books and can honestly say this is a great story. Although the books can be read as stand-alone, I highly recommended that you read them all.

    You really get to know and love the characters. Freddie, vulnerable, lovable and devastated by Jo-Jo’s secret. Jo-Jo, whilst appearing strong and self-assured is confused with what she really wants in life and has settled for safe and mundane until her circumstances change and she walks back into Freddie’s life causing him further pain and distress.

    The story is really well written and touches on some sensitive subjects with compassion and respect. Would definitely recommend

  2. Amazon review

    The much anticipated final book in the trilogy certainly doesn’t disappoint. Picking up pretty much where the second book An Extra Shot finished off. Well now we know, Freddie and Jo-Jo, continue their roller coaster of tensions, emotions and dark secrets, ingredients which ensures this book is a real page-turner and equally as compelling reading as the authors first two. A recommended read for sure.
