One Last Time

8 hours and 55 minutes
Published February 26th 2018 by Corinne Michaels
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 . . .
Overall Rating: 2.5/5 Stars
This is my first ever audio book. I really enjoyed listening to this book. It’s really opened my eyes to how audible books can help you out with your reading goals and being able to read while doing other things.
I just didn’t love this book. I just randomly picked it up and it was exactly what I expected it to be. A cute, funny romance with a bit of drama. I just wasn’t as intrigued with this book as I have been with books like this in the past.
Plot Rating: 3/5 Stars
I really like that the focus of this book isn’t about two young people falling in love. It’s a realistic book.
Kristen is in the midst of her divorce when she meets her new love interest, Noah. They work through their new relationship with plenty of hardships. I really like that this really could apply to people in real life. (Minus the whole her shacking up with an actor, that’s not really that realistic.)
This book made me laugh out loud quite a few times. This book also made me blush. I’ve never actually listened to a sex scene being narrated before and I had to turn it off out of embarrassment even though I was mostly alone.
There was drama in this book. It was pretty interesting but I think it was a bit too much for this story. I just don’t like how CM turned Scott’s new girlfriend into a conniving woman.
Character Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
I love Kristen. She’s a relatable character and I just love her. She’s so sensitive to her children and I respect that about her. She was scared to introduce Noah to them knowing it was too soon. She’s a heartwarming character who deserves the world.
Honestly, I didn’t really care for Noah. I feel like she doesn’t need a famous guy to be in her life after it was turned upside down. I just don’t think he was worthy of her.
I loved all of the side characters. They each had a personality of their own. Everyone in this book made me laugh out loud at least once.
Romance Rating: 1.5/5 Stars
I really didn’t care for Kristen and Noah’s relationship. I thought she went into really quick after her marriage and fell way too quick. I just don’t like the insta-love. I feel like she didn’t even have enough time to mourn her previous marriage before jumping into a relationship.
I think I really hated their relationship due to the fact that Noah is an actor. It just seems over the top for me.
