Second Time Around #2
One Last Time by Corinne Michaels
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 . . .
I haven’t been reading a lot of contemporary romance lately … even though my recent book reviews on the blog says otherwise 😉 But I’ll never turn an audiobook down!
December’s been a fairly busy month, so I was rather eager to get into One Last Time to kick off my December reading.
Okay, let’s get to it. There’s always something about a story when one of the main characters is going through a divorce, I tend to loathe the ex with a passion because most of the time, they’re an absolute nuisance. And It’s definitely something that I don’t want overpowering the story and at times, it felt like it did. I just wanted her ex-husband to be gone.
And then Kristin and Noah meet and it’s honestly a little bit awkward, and I was really sure how I felt about Kristin’s initial reactions towards seeing him. But it was actually pretty adorable.
Overall, very much an enjoyable story and it’s a great pick if you’re looking for a contemporary romance. Everything happened a bit too quickly for me, but still liked their story.
Narrators: LOVE EM, not the first time I’ve listened to narrate books before, but they’re definitely some favorites.
