Review ~ One Last Time by Corinne Michaels

Book Description:

From New York Times bestselling author, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming standalone romance.

I’m getting really good at cutting my losses.

First, the husband. Divorcing him was the best decision I ever made. But between single-parenting and job-hunting, I can’t catch my breath. When a celebrity blogging position falls into my lap, I’m determined to succeed.

That is, until I get my first assignment and actually see Noah Frazier for the first time . . . practically naked and dripping wet. My heart races and I forget how to form complete sentences. His chiseled abs, irresistible smirk, and crystal blue eyes are too perfect to be real. So, what do I do? Get drunk and humiliate myself, of course.

I’m ready to forget the awkward night, yet Noah has no intention of allowing me to move on. Instead, he arranges for me to write a feature on him, ensuring a lot more time together. One embarrassing moment after another, one kiss after another, and before I can stop myself, I realize—I’m falling in love with him.

But when the unthinkable happens, can I even blame him for cutting his losses?

What I wouldn’t give for just one last time . . .

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 stars

“Magic gum, huh?”
“I hear it helps when you want to erase the past and start over.”

Corinne Michaels is one author that always delivers for me and this book was no different. This book is different from Corinne Michaels norm, but despite the slight deviation she still hit the nail on the head.

Kristin is a woman that most of us would be able to relate to in some form or another. Having been mentally and emotionally abused by her husband she finally plucks up the courage to divorce and finds herself a single mum of two and stepping her toe into the workforce for the first time in a very long time. Kristin is lucky though, she has a great team or girlfriends around her and this book goes a long way into showing just how important great friends are.

“His words are noise, and I’m going to drown it out with the positivity that lives inside me. Negativity is so much easier to believe, but I’m done with living in that hell.”

It is through her friends that Kristin gets her first job as a kind of celebrity journalist and her first topic is a friend of her girlfriends, Noah. Noah, was perfect, I mean you will be hard pressed to find a man as patient, adorable, caring and as charming as he was. He could see the damage that Kristin's ex-husband had caused, and he made it his mission to build this beautiful woman back up again. His relationship with her children will only make you love him all the more. I mean…ovaries officially combusted.

“…the glass door slides open and Noah walks through the threshold. My legs start to quiver as his eyes meet mine. All I can think about is how I’d like to climb him like a tree and shake his coconuts.”

This was a stunning read once again from Corinne Michaels. The character connection, the emotions, the dialogue were all on point and from the first to last page, this book had me rapt. With the added extra of Corinne Michaels humour, you will have tears of laughter and in my case, the odd case of sadness. Once again, Corinne Michaels has delivered a stunning book and I cannot wait to see what comes next from this author.
