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 . . .
This was good, but I’ve got to tell you that it reminded me a lot of my divorce from my ex. It didn’t help they’re both named Scott…. too fucking weird.
But, setting that aside. This book was really good and I loved that we get a little more of the quartet of friends continued from We Own Tonight.
Kristin handled the end of her marriage way better than I think any woman should be expected to. Especially after the douchebag things her husband said to her and the way he handled the whole business of ending a life with her. He’s a total dick. But, he was a dick in the last book too so it wasn’t like it was a huge surprise. She had a pretty strong backbone and I loved that she didn’t let Scott walk all over her. I think that she and Noah kind of screamed rebound but it’s fiction and I found it wasn’t all that hard to set that aside. It could happen. Noah’s hot and sweet!
I liked Noah a lot better than I thought I would. I didn’t expect a lot since he was pretty adamant he did not want a relationship and was only really interested in a sexual romp. He surprised me by being supportive, I’m going to mention sweet again, attentive and willing to learn how to deal with dating a woman with kids. The kids alone would send most men running unless they were serious. The things that caused issues in their relationship were damning and I can’t really blame him for the conclusions he jumped to, but I had hoped he would slow down and think rather than just react.
Sometimes when kids are included in a book they can come across as completely false. These kids were fun to read. No falseness at all. The way Aubrey plays Noah is hilarious. I loved every interaction between them. I also liked that Noah didn’t come off all fatherly to Finn trying to find a way to ingratiate himself to him. Instead he interacted with him as a friend but not in a creepy way. The epilogue with Noah and Finn just made me laugh.
Now, I know we probably won’t get a book for Danielle since she’s married and seems to be happy, but I can’t wait for Nicole’s story.
