One life.
One choice.
One love.
Sometimes it’s all we get and one moment could change it all.

I hate the number one—it haunts me; my every waking moment is a constant reminder of what I lost.

One day, I met a guy and I fell in love.
He asked me one question…I said yes.

Our life was perfect…until one day everything changed.

I watched him slowly slip and fade away.

4.75 stars

Beautiful, heart-breaking, emotional story about loss and grief, about new love and new beginning, about letting go but never forgetting.

I adored the heroine, strong kind woman who lost her young husband on cancer and was left with adorable 5-year-old son.
Alone in grief, alone in pain.
God, I cried every single time her dead husband was mentioned. I admired her strength and how she managed her life, and how she cared for her son.

The hero was amazing. Father of h’s son’s BFF, recently

A Review of One Final Breath by LK Collins

This author will rip your heart out and hand it back to you - 5+++++ stars

This book had me hooked from the first page. As someone that sat by my mother's bedside, with my daughter, and watched her take her last breath on this earth, Ms. Collins had me sobbing from the beginning. I knew this would be an AMAZING story and I was right. I actually felt like I was right there in the bedroom with Faye, Braxley and Ben as he took his last breath. Whereas I was

Faye lost her beloved husband Ben to cancer. A year later she met Thane.
So, I embraced some scenes where Thane and her late husband shared some similarities, e.g. both liked Chai tea latte.
But when Faye was looking at him and he reminded her of Ben, a resemblance she had overlooked, my interest started fading. From then on, I struggled to keep reading, I couldn’t connect with the characters and dnf @ 60%.

4 Hope Filled CROWNS

There are attributes of an LK Collin's novel that I expect, such as steamy and sexy scenes between her heroine and hero, suspense and drama, and an engaging plot. And while One Final Breath is engaging and has the hot scenes between the main characters, it differs in the tone and type of romance it is, and readers will enjoy the change of pace.

Faye, the heroine of her story, has just been dealt a loss so devastating that most people wouldn't survive, but she

Meh DNF. Went from 0-100 way too quickly and the writing was a bit amateurish

Thane is such a sweetheart and the man knows he's good looking, I'm thinking he likes it when Faye ogles him, "I lift my shirt over my head, knowing I have to follow the boys outside. She stares at my abs, and what I really can’t wait for is to see her in her swimming suit." Thane is easily excited about things when it comes to Faye, "eff yeah! Does that mean I’ll get lucky, too?” I whisper into her ear and she nods. I grab a handful of her *** holding her close to me. Jesus Christ, I love this ...more

Grab the tissues because you are going to need the whole box! This book is so emotional, gut-wrenching. Not like any other books from LK Collins. I'm in love with Faye and Thane. Not to mention Braxley and Jack, these two little boys are great!

Faye becomes such a strong woman after she has a major life changing moment. It takes her awhile to get there but thanks to Thane, she is able to get be strong once again. Thane is just the man to help her thru it all. Because of his love, Faye is able to

LK Collins will make you believe in second chances with their new book.

If you've read from this husband and wife writing dup before, by now, you know that this couple write about quick steamy reads. Well, most of their books are. However, they have taken their writing to another level in their new book One Final Breath.

The heroine-- Faye-- lost her husband to cancer at a very young age. Left with her son and her paintings, she tries to move on. She thought she also died with Ben, until a stran

I’m a huge follower of LK & when I read the blurb for this, I knew I was going to fall head over heals with these characters & their story. I wasn’t wrong!! OMG from the first chapter which had my heart breaking & tears tumbling down my face in devastation, to the final pages, where the tears were of happiness, this book did wrap around my heart & hugged me from start to finish.

So – Who are the heart breakers & soul takers??

One Final Breath is a tear jerker and then some! It will crush your heart and put it back together again by the time it's done with you.

"It's like I can feel him pushing me towards you."

Faye is a widow, a single mom to Braxley. After the loss of her husband she feels nothing but grief and sadness. It's been a while since he passed and she just can't get passed it, not even a little bit. Not until she meets Thane.

I have been waiting to read this book, and just like every other novel of LK Collins that I have read, I was addicted from the start.

I don’t know if I was just feeling overly emotional the day I read ‘One Final Breath’, but I’m thankful for the box of tissues I had sitting beside me. There was more than one occasion where I found myself grabbing at those tissues to wipe the tears I had streaming down my face.

One Final Breath...the title alone tells you what you can expect and along with the blurb, you already know that there is a heart-shattering loss. And even knowing this, it STILL takes your breath and breaks your heart!

I can't tell you how much I LOVED this touched something deep inside, first with the heart-stopping beginning and then with the strength of one very special heroine. A woman who overcame one of THE most difficult things anyone can overcome and came out the other side wi

You'll need plenty of tissues for this one. This one was a very emotional story, I was sobbing at one point. It was beautifully written story, I loved how Thane encouraged Faye and helped her, and she supported him when he needed it. A great story and it had a great HEA. Wonderful character and writing, LK Collins at her best, you can't miss this one.

One Final Breath was a great 5 star second chance romance.

You get pulled right in from the beginning. My heart shattered for Faye and Braxley and what they were going through with Ben. This especially hits home from a life experience for myself as well.

We then jump ahead a year later to Faye trying to move forward. She has been struggling and has been talking to a therapist which seems to be helping.

This real-life couple is downright dirty in the bedroom, which bleeds through the pages of their steaming hot stories. While LK writes the books, Mr. Collins, the tattooed god himself, is the mastermind behind so much of the page-turning sexiness.
