Book Review: One Last Time by Corinne Michaels

One Last Time

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 . . .

I absolutely adore Corinne Michaels' Return to Me series, so you bet I couldn't wait to pick this book up. I love the cover of this one and I couldn't wait to see a celebrity blogger fall for one of her stories. 

After divorcing her husband, Kristin is in a whole new world where she's finally rediscovering herself. That means, though, working a new job as a celebrity blogger while juggling her kids and her nasty ex-husband. So when she humiliates herself by getting drunk during her first interview with a very gorgeous and charming actor, who just so happens to be her best friend's husband's best friend, Kristin doesn't know how she'll recover. Her answer is to hide and forget it ever happened, but Noah is intrigued by Kristin and doesn't plan on letting her go anytime soon. 

Right when this book started, I was a little annoyed with the relationship between Kristin and her soon to be ex-husband. The beginning seemed rushed and *wham* her ex was suddenly the stereotypical nasty guy who was annoying about what weekends he got the kids, who got what, and paying child support. It was a little too over-the-top and cliched for my taste. Then, when Kristin meets Noah, their relationship goes from zero to love in no time and I really didn't feel any build up. 

I think that since I loved Say You'll Stay by Corinne Michaels so much, I had super high expectations for this one. I still enjoyed the story and how close Kristin was with her friends, but I feel like all of her friends fell into stereotypical categories and I couldn't find myself connecting with them or Kristin as much as I wanted to. 

Overall, this was just an okay read to me. I wish there were more unique characters and a less rushed storyline with a more believable relationship. I still want to read the first book in this series and the next ones to come, this just wasn't my favorite.
