One Last Time - Corinne Michaels - Blog Tour


One Last Time by Corinne Michaels
Release Date: February 26th
, 2018
Genre: Contemporary 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?

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


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.
“Me, too.”
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.

5 Stars 
One Last Time is a raw, heartfelt and emotional second chance romance full of heat, heart and humour.  Despite this title being a standalone, anyone who has read We Own Tonight will be familiar with Kristin, as it features the same set of character.  Kristin is one of Heather’s closest friends, and Noah is Eli’s closest friend, aside from his bandmates.  
One Last Time is a inspiring story of a pair of two untrusting, and damaged souls, haunted by their past finding solace, healing and a second chance and love and happiness in each other’s arms.
Kristin has been hurt ridiculed, bullied and belittled by the person who was supposed to love and support her through thick and thin. She’s a survivor, strong, determined and courageous, yet vulnerable and has a truck load of baggage.  Kristin is a lovely character, sweet, selfless and compassionate, a tad awkward and overwhelmed at times, she’s afraid to let down her guard and be hurt again.  Being a single mother, she is incredibly fierce in her love for her children.

Noah Frazier is just swoon worthy! He’s incredibly charming, charismatic and sweet.  This caring, sexy, gentle, yet determined and protective hero is not afraid to appear vulnerable and freely shares his thought and feelings. Despite being quite self-assured and confident he has his own skeletons in his closet.
Despite being incredibly lovely both inside and out, Kristin’s self esteem has taken a battering, and she can’t fathom that Noah would be attracted to her.  The spark between this pair is instant and undeniable, the attraction, chemistry and heat they share is intense and passionate.  Told in a dual point of view the banter between this pair is flirtatious and fun, and often humorous but most of all it’s open and honest.

I adored the interactions between Noah and Kristin’s two young children Aubrey and Finn and the wonderful, realistic relationship Kristin shares with her close group of friends. 
There is also a cameo of characters from a previous series. 
I cannot recommend this engaging, enthralling and emotional story enough, for anyone who has enjoyed Corinne’s previous titles One Last Time is a must read!
