One Last Time by Corinne Michaels
Release Date: February 26th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Every time I pick up a book from Corrine Michaels I know I am in for an emotional roller coaster ride. This one is no different. Right off the first page was a scene of a woman who finally came to a realization that her marriage is broken beyond repair. How a couple who loved each other for so many years came to this moment of splitting a piece of furniture? I cried, my heart ached, and I was devastated for Kristin. A mother of two, Kristin had been a stay at home mom. She gave up her dream career to take care of her husband and children. Before the tears had dried, Kristin had to pick up her shattered heart and move on with her life for the sake of her children. When a celebrity blogging position came up, Kristin jumped on it. What she did not expect on her first assignment was a very hot, sexy body, and soaking wet Noah Frazier (if memory serves) Kristin could not string together more than a word and she was a bit tipsy. Getting involved with Noah is a bad idea … or is it?
I have to be honest, as much as I enjoyed the emotional first part of the book I was so relieved for Noah and the hilarious, awkward, fun, romantic moments that followed. I love the happy quirky version of Kristin. And Noah? My new hero!!! He is absolutely the perfect guy in all his charming glory. He is handsome, sweet, kind, caring – totally swoon-worthy!!! As you know from the blurb, shit hits the fan and most guys would bolt but he stays (he messed up just a tiny bit :/). It shows his love is unconditional and real. He also brings out the best version of Kristin – loving, confident, strong. Like I said freaking SWOONS over this perfect man. I love the instant chemistry, the passion, and the romance between Kristin and Noah. I also love that the hero and heroine in this book are older (40) than what I normally read. It’s never too late for love, right? The banters are really funny too, thanks to Noah and his teasing, flirty way. The epilogue makes my heart all warm and fuzzy – just a perfect ending. One Last Time is a heartwarming second chance romance. It was heartbreaking and heart-healing. Perfect blend of laughter, hope, heart and romance.
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?

Before I can make a move either way, 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. I thought he was hot in the photo, then he was better through the window, but up close, he’s otherworldly.
“Hi.” Noah’s throaty voice floats around me. “You must be Kristin.”
Instead of speaking, I stand here with my mouth hanging open. Some small sounds that could be words escape, but they aren’t coherent.
Kill me now.
“Noah, this is my best friend, Kristin. Who we told you about.” Heather elbows me.
“Yes. Me. Hi. Kristin. I. You. Hi.”
Smooth. Someone should video this because I’m sure it’s highly entertaining.
“Right.” Noah flashes a blinding smile. “I hear you’re a reporter?”
Okay, Kristin, you have to speak in more than one-word increments or grunting noises.
I grab Heather’s glass she just poured and hope it’ll act as a talisman. “Yes, for a small blog, but I’m that. A reporter. For a blog. I write.”
And a bumbling idiot.
Noah’s green eyes are filled with humor. He moves a little closer and places his hand on top of mine. “Eli filled me in a little. I’m happy I came.”
I’m pretty sure I just came. At least we’re all coming.
His lips turn up as his eyes rake my body. “See you out there.” He winks and walks back out.
My ovaries have officially disintegrated.
I turn back to Heather, who bursts out into a fit of laughter. “Oh, that was epic. You all said I was starstruck when I met Eli? You should’ve seen that!” Heather continues to laugh at my expense. “Yes. Me. Um. Blog. Er—” She mocks.
“Shut up.” I laugh—because, really, what else can I do—and bump her hip before moving around the bar and grabbing a glass. “Now, pour me a shot before I drink straight from the bottle.”
There’s only one way to get through tonight.
Lots of Alcohol.
