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 . . .

Corinne Michaels writes characters I wanna root for! I loved Kristin and Noah! There is something about the way Michaels tells a story; it’s always real and raw and full of so many emotions. One Last Time was no exception. Such a beautiful story about two people finally finding a true sense of self and in each other happiness.
When we meet Kristin she’s come finally to the realization that she can’t stay in the marriage she thought was to be her forever. After fourteen years of heartache and feeling not good enough, she leaves for herself and for her kids. Her ex was just vile. Now, Noah? Noah was swoony, dreamy and everything everyone wishes for in a man. This woman never stood a chance in resisting Noah! I loved every swoony moment!!
Though I haven’t been thru a divorce, I have experienced what it’s like to have someone tear you down with words. I thought Corinne’s writing of Kristin’s feelings and the way she reacted so many times was so realistic. I felt her anxiety. I hurt for her and encouraged her. Kristin’s kids were amazing, Finn is feeling so many emotions with the divorce and changes to his life; and Aubrey was just a ray of happiness and animals and glitter. Throw in the amazing tribe of friends and the story just got richer. I loved that Noah was willing to give Kristin what she needed, all the while going after what he wanted. He told her time and again he was going to win her heart. He definitely won mine!! But he wasn’t without his own worries and fears.
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.
