From New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE romance novel.

I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman. I’m especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh.

However, that’s exactly where I find myself.

What’s a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes

“Let go for one night.”

Corinne always writes the best emotional books. She’s one of the authors I turn to when I want an ugly cry. We Own Tonight is a bit different than her other books in that respect. It’s emotional at times, but it’s much lighter in a lot of ways as well. It’s safe to say that Corinne can do more than just emotional. This book made me laugh, made me smile, and yes- made me tear up once or twice. It was a fantastic read!

Omg this book was so good, I devour it.I fell in love with the story from the beginning and the characters were so well developed.The plot was brilliant, it's not like most typical rock star romance,this one is so much more.It's a little bit heavy but also at the same time funny,sexy and sweet.

➦After reading numerous books by this author I quickly became a fan of her angsty but at the same time uplifting stories. Looking at the cover and the blurb of this particular book I was expecting something lighthearted and, being a big fan of romance reads with celebrity heroes, I decided to get my grabby paws on this book asap.

I think every girl has wanted a night like Heather had in We Own Tonight, especially when you were younger. I was a HUGE N’Sync fan, HUGE! I loved Justin Timberlake and who are we kidding I still do! So tonight when I was reading this all I could think about was when I saw N’Sync in concert when I was 15 and swore he sang directly to me! Then I thought holy cow what if I got a chance to see them again now, what if he pulled me out of the crowd, OMG! OMG!! Legit that would be AWESOME!

Can you picture you’re favorite boy band of all time? You know the one you’ve spent countless hours singing along to their songs while screaming at the top of your lungs. That feeling you always get when when their lyrics reach right into your soul and becomes a soothing balm for whatever you’re going through at the time, or whether it’s just a feel good high, your favorite musical band will have that type of impact on you and for Heather Covey, “Four Doors Down” is no different.

Fans of Corinne Michaels are in for a treat with We Own Tonight! A sweet, humorous and emotional romance that anyone who has ever crushed hard is bound to feel deep in their bones.

We Own Tonight begins as four best friends venture to a concert to see Three Blocks Down, a band from their teen years. Heather never imagined that singing and shaking her thang at a concert would capture Eli’s attention, but it does. After her sexy romp and a panicked escape, Heather finds herself the object of Eli’s

I'm gutted and angry at the moment, and I'm about to let a biga** rant fly free. So...if anyone has an aversion to a less-than-stellar review, don't get mad at me if you read it. Also, I may or may not SPOIL something (assume may, for safety's sake), so that's the warnings out of the way.

I waited for this book for so long and I'm truly distressed. I reckon it's stupid to be so upset. because it doesn't do any good. Who should I direct it towards? The

I read the dedication in this book and thought, 'YES! This story is going to be just my cup of tea,' and I was absolutely right. The crux of the narrative is middle aged female protagonist somehow attracts the attention of her teenage heartthrob. Total fairy-tale romance; complete and utter escapism involving my very own teenage fantasy. I loved every minute, swooned my way through pages that are brimming with so much fun, very sexy times, serious issues and a dusting of perfect, beautiful emoti

Over the last few years, I've fallen in love with many of Corinne Michaels' books. She has an addictive writing style and writes sexy romances that always have deep feels! They're wonderfully balanced reads and I always look forward to her new releases. So when this book came out, of course I couldn't wait to read it and, unsurprisingly, I loved it!!

"My once in a lifetime..."

This is a great story line about a girl's teen crush actually coming to fruition! Eli was the star in all of Heather's dreams so naturally, she's seen his band in action a few times. Her and her friends go see them again even though they are all in their thirties!

This time it's a little different...Eli "sees" her and has her brought up on stage so he can sing to her. Heather's blown away to say the least and with a little convincing from her best friend, she gives

I've loved Corinne Michaels' books in the past. I loved how she writes angst and her books about family and friendships has always been winners for me.

Unfortunately, We Own Tonight missed the mark for me. I tried to like it since it had all the right ingredients to be the kind of story that tugs at your heart and makes you ugly cry but it didn't work for me at all. I didn't feel anything for the characters, which always spells trouble.

I'll try to fully explain everything in my upcoming review.

As soon as I finished One Last Time, I started this one because it's about one of Kristin McGee's best friend Heather Covey and actor / singer Eli Walsh. I like their story. It was romantic and slightly emotional. I didn't shed a tear but there's one part that made me sad.

Heather Covey is a policewoman and divorced from her lieutenant ex-husband. Among her best friends Kristin, Nicole and Danielle, she's the most serious and barely hangs out for fun. She's busy with her career and takes care of

I liked this book very much. Although the heroine is 38 and the hero is 42 years old, this is a fairy tale, "a teenage dream becoming real 20 years later" 😊

Heather is a cop who got divorced 5 years ago. Eli is a musician who was an idol of teenagers when he was in a boy band called Four Blocks Down and although the band still makes music sometimes and goes on tours, he is now basically an actor.

Eli was also the teenage crush of our heroine Heather and today, she still watches his seri

It's for those who were once in love with the big star from Hollywood and what would happen if their dreams come true.

I really liked the beginning, it was fun and quickly pulled me into story. Then I have ups and downs with this book, but still 4 stars because I liked it, just not loved it. It really has everything, it's funny, sexy, romantic and heartbreaking, so I can not really pinpoint why I'm not in love. Maybe it was that none of the topics was so well developed that I could feel and live

Cast your mind back to your teenage years when you had posters of your favourite boyband on your bedroom walls. I always had a favourite member of the band who I put on a pedastal and day dreamed about marrying. I felt connected to their music and felt like I knew them. And all this was before the internet changed the whole celebrity scene.

Heather was one of those girls in her early teens, in love with the band Four Doors Down and in particular the lead singer Eli Walsh. Many years later she is

ANnnnnd...this is how you write romance folks because We Own Tonight is romance at it's finest! Corinne Michaels swept me off my feet with this brand new standalone. She reminded me of why I so dearly love her works and rooted for it every time. Holee-be-jayzus! I fell in love deeply with this story and of course, who would never love Heather and Eli?

We Own Tonight is the newest addition to the fabulous Corinne Michaels' book library. It's a standalone romance that solidifies that Corinne lives off the tears of her readers. I know before I even open the book that I will cry. Usually more than once or twice. With We Own Tonight, I cried three times before I hit the halfway mark! Now, they are not all sad tears. There are tears of happiness, tears of joy and tears of laughter, too. Corinne always delivers the goods. She's one of those authors ...more

It has been a long while since I have read a book by Corinne Michaels. I was beyond excited to dive into this story, because who doesn't want to read about an average woman falling in love with a singer and vice versa?

I'm pretty sure that every one of us used to be in love with a celebrity in our teens. Heck, I'm pretty certain that we, even as very responsible grown-ups (HA!), are st

We own tonight è una commedia romantica scritta dalla penna di Corinne Michaels che racchiude tutti gli ingredienti per una rom-com di successo: ironia, divertimento, romanticismo, sensualità e quel pizzico di drama che non guasta.
