About this ebook

A New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestseller.

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 . . .

“One Last Time” is a MUST read! Kristin and Noah will make you feel so many different emotions. As always Corinne rips your heart out (in a good way) and slowly pieces it back together again. Your heart will be broken with one simple sentence. “When will you learn Kristin? If you gave a little more effort, I wouldn’t be so disappointed.” But guess what…Kristin doesn’t lay down and curl up into a ball. She shows us strength and determination. She is a single mom who has the strength to carry on for her kids and herself. Then in walks the man every woman dreams of…Noah Frazier. I mean who wouldn’t love a man who steps up and doesn’t fix everything, but is your rock, your pillar to hold on to when things are tough. “I know that you think you’re weak, but I see a strong, beautiful, and smart woman who deserves a man to worship her.” Noah doesn’t back down and he makes it clear how he feels without playing games. “I’m going to win your heart, Kristin. Be ready.” Noah is defiantly in the running for the best of the best. He gives all of Corrine’s other leading men a run for their money. And guess what he wins…sorry boys! Even though he isn’t perfect he always comes out on top.  There are also some special visitors in this book…they add to the storyline and have a purpose for being written into the book. They aren’t just there to make a hasty visit! Thanks for another wonderful book. Keep them coming our way!

Every book that I read by Corinne Michaels gets better and better and One Last Time is no different. The characters in this book are so deep and rich. I enjoyed the relationship between Noah and Kristen it had all the elements of real life; exes, kids, jobs (or lack of), and just daily living. This book brought humor, angst, some drama and so much emotion. My favorite parts of this book are the relationships with the kids and that this is a mature couple. This is a must read five-star book that for me ticked all the boxes.

Author Corinne Michaels has created another story that will sweep you of off your feet into an amazing, emotional reading experience that only she can create. Lose yourself in her words and this beautiful, poignant story of picking yourself up and starting again. When I read a book, I read and wait for the book...the feeling...the character that draws you in. For me it is the magic that makes me fall into and be engrossed and enamored with a book. It is why I read and the reason I read mostly romance. This book and story is absolutely beautiful. It is about second chances. It breathtakingly takes you through a bad marriage, leaving and starting over and finding real, lasting love with a good man. We all have different reasons why we fall in love with a story...why it speaks to us. Author Corinne Michaels books whisper...come here, come closer and let me tell you a story. Her words are so beautifully melded that she really is the reader whisperer. She makes every story strong and relatable. Perhaps your reasons for reading and loving a book are based on your own personal history, a dream for your life, a fantasy or just an escape from everyday occurrences we all face. No matter your reason One Last Time will fulfill your need. It checks all the boxes. The book for me happened within the first few pages. It spoke to me and pain I hold in my heart. It gave me hope. Kristin is a strong heroine. She is stronger than she knows and beautiful in every way! Her kids are adorable and their dynamic is fabulous. She is a terrific mom and puts them first. Noah...oh Noah, he is the mold that book boyfriends all wish they were made from. He is caring, has great values, loves the kids and is hot as Hades. Stardom hasn't gone to his head. One Last Time is off of the star chart. There are not enough stars to give this swooning, heartwarming story! Extremely well done Author Corinne Michaels!
