BLOG TOUR & 5 STAR REVIEW: One Last Time by Corinne Michaels




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 . . .

EXCERPT

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.

“Me, too.”

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.

Alcohol.

Lots of Alcohol.





My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

First let me start with this...GAAAAAAAAHHHHH! Noah! šŸ˜ I just loved him so much! Okay, now that I have that out of the way let's get to the review. Haha.
 
Kristin is in the middle of a divorce and I can't even begin to tell you how much I hated her husband. He was the absolute worst. I just wanted to kick him in the nuts repeatedly. He ate away at her self esteem, making her feel terrible and now she finds herself starting over again. She gave up her job to raise her children and she finds herself back in the workforce. Thanks to Eli, Kristin now works for a gossip website and feels totally out of her element. Already unsure she can do it, she starts to doubt to her even more when her first assignment will be to interview the super famous and super hot Noah Frazier.

Noah, friend and costar to Eli (HI ELI!), is in town visiting and Kristin is given the task of interviewing him. Let’s just say their first meeting is very interesting and Noah becomes absolute smitten with Kristin. Once she writes the initial article, Noah makes it so they have to work together again. He wants to spend more time with her and a longer, feature article is the way to do that. He's so sneaky!!

Y’all, I can’t even begin to explain how much I loved Noah. Like Eli, he’s famous, but actually a genuine guy. He’s very down to earth and enjoys just spending time with Kristin and getting to know her. It doesn’t take long for him to realize the toll her marriage took on her. He does not care about her past, only the woman she is now. She’s a wonderful mother. A great friend. She's funny. Outgoing. And gorgeous. Not that that fact is the most important to Noah, but it’s one Kristin sees the least. She sees herself and unattractive and worthless and Noah makes it his mission to make Kristin see how wonderful she is. 

This book is sweet, sexy and will give you all the warm and fuzzies. I was so proud of myself. Corinne’s books usually make me cry but this one didn’t. It’s happy, funny and heartfelt. By make sure to get that extra scene Corinne wrote because that will make you cry. I was so close. Corinne is such a jerk. šŸ˜‰
