What happens when the one you’re meant to be with has been right in front of you all along?

Fallon Wrenshaw never screamed one single word so loudly in all her life.
Her throat burned.
Her ears rang.
All she wanted was for him to stop, but it didn’t matter—it was too late.
What’s done was done.
And in that moment, she realized she’d been blind to the truth for years.

I always enjoy an LK Collins story for how down and dirty her characters get. You always know you're going to get sexy hot. However, this time (and it's good-- still sexy goodness), I got a few chapters in and still no down and dirty. What the what? I'm reading an LK Collins book, right? Yep (I double checked) the cover while reading). Okay so no down and dirty yet but I'm thinking, I really like Fallon and Parks-- they have awesome chemistry and I love their connection to one another. Their ban ...more

What can I say about this book besides LOVED IT!!! LK Collins as usual hit it out of the park. Also does a very good job of frustrating you to hell and back, in the end it's worth the ride. Think I fell a little in love with Parks myself...pretty hot!! Can't wait for the next book!!

When it comes to LK Collin's One Final Chance all I have to say is this:

This husband and wife duo has officially SLAYED the concept of the friends to lovers romance! One Final Chance is a top notch read; Fallon and Parks' white-hot love affair is everything and then some! Fans of this genre will immediately recognize the power, intensity and fortitude of LK Collins' passionate, all-consuming words!

LK Collins makes you FEEL Fallon and Parks' heartbreak when they are apart at the same time that th

Another heart wrenching story from Ms. Collins - 5+++++ stars

Fallon Wrenshaw and Parks Avalon have been best friends since they were very young kids since they lived next door to each other. With the death of Parks' sister, Meg, when he was a teenager, Parks became afraid of telling Fallon how he felt about her because he was afraid that he would lose her as his friend.

He's always been her light in the storm, as they have been best friends since they were kids.

Another great read from LK Collins!! It wasn't terribly long, was real easy to get in to, read in one sitting and loved it!

This is all about Fallon and Parks, who have been best friends for years - they are always there for each other through thick and thin, but unbeknownst to each other, have feelings that run way deeper than just best friends, but each think it would be best not to let their feelings out and lose their best friend relationship.

Poor Fallon is in a bit of a state at the start of

I loved One Final Chance!

Fallon has just had her heart-broken for the second time by the same man. After she witnesses her boyfriend cheating she runs to her best friend. Parks would do anything for his best friend Fallon, even fake a ten-year relationship to hide the truth from her. That is all about to change when Fallon shows up on his doorstep with nowhere to go and a broken heart.

I loved Parks and Fallon, I usually tend to stay away from Best Friends to Lovers romances because they tend to

Wow! Parks and Fallen! They are two friends that have known each other for years. They have supported each other through tragedies throughout their lives but never found the courage to let each other know how they feel.
I feel for Parks. He is in a tough situation in loving Fallon. She is his best friend and he can't risk losing her. He has to watch her be with a man who refuses to take care of her.

The words flow off the page, the story grabs you, and the characters give you all the feels. This ‘friends to lovers’ story will take you on a ride of hurt, frustration, anger, friendship, and ultimate love between two people who have always been there for each other.

Parks has always been there for Fallon. When her world starts falling apart, he shows her that he is one constant she can always count on. I loved seeing the way their relationship evolved from friendship to something deeper and the

The story of Fallon and Parks starts out with her ex-boyfriend cheating on her and her best friend, Parks coming to the rescue. He's been in love with her for years but has held back. He struggles through most of the book holding in his feelings for her. It's a good novel but not one of my favorites by L.K. Collins. Fallon is too all over the place for me. She is pretty much a mess that Parks takes on. It's like she can't be on her own without relaying on someone else. She's too, I'm not sure ho ...more

While I loved the storyline I felt that this book was too rushed, short and just went a little wrong. The background of the two characters I couldn't get in tune with. This was communicated well and I didn't get a idea of who Parks really is. I found Fallon to be a weak heroine who takes someone back after they cheated. Leo's characters personality I found was mentioned here and there and next thing you know he is being violent but it hasn't been mentioned before. The storyline boy cheats on gir ...more

Fallon is an adorable drunk, “I’m sorry I got so drunk and grabbed your very large ***k.” I help her out of the vehicle and up to the door, and she wobbles the whole time." Parks only does the best for his girl, "I smirk at her. What? Did she think I would book us into a dive? “You didn’t think I’d book anything except for the best for my sexy, did you?” I liked this book, loved Parks the man took care of what was his.

I thought I had bad luck, I think Fallon has the worst bad luck of all at the beginning. She does have the best best friend tho who happens to be male and who has always loved her..

I had to read this book in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down. A beautiful love story. There were a few laughs along the way. I don't know what else there is to say.. Other than I highly recommend you read this book!

Oh LK Collins. You never cease to amaze me. This book was absolutely perfect and outside the box of the normal alpha asshole. Parks is one if those protective but sweeties. *swoon*

There was definitely a slow burn. At times you want to smack Fallon and Parks. I wanted to shake them and tell them to wake up and see what's been in front of you from the beginning.

I love the way this story progressed and I absolutely loved the ending. It was pure perfection.

Once again LK Collins has left the reader salivating!! Fallon & Parks are an adorable duo. Parks waiting ever so patiently for Fallon and not daring to do anything to jeoparadize a potential realtionship. Fallon herself is a bit of a mess, from her jerk of a looser boyfriend Leo, to her career. I read this book in one sitting as I simply could not put it down. Definitely a 5 star & must read!!

Fallon is a mess when the story starts. Nothing is going her way. But through it all Park is her rock.
Park is a great friend who turns into a even better lover with a enormous cock! 😜🍆 These two both have hidden feelings that are eager to get out. This was a must read.

Every single book she writes is pure perfection. The characters and story line will touch your heart and soul one way or another.

A frustrated love for Parks, he's cared for, loved and waited for Fallon for along time, he's always been there for her, and he always will be, he just wishes she could see the love he feels for her runs far deeper than friendship.
A great love story. I had a crazy mad instinct to yell out and tell him to just "say something", on numerous occasions....a testament to a great writer and her ability to pull the reader into the story.

A quick easy read this book was full of emotion, both happiness and sadness. The authors writing is engaging and the characters were easy to fall in love with and you couldn’t help but route for them. I will be honest I had hoped for a little more drama, but the storyline was good; how do you move from friends to lovers without potentially ruining what you have.

When her life falls apart, Fallon runs to Parks, her long time best friend. He's always been there for her though everything and she the same for him. Life hits her hard, one disaster after another and Parks stays steadfast by her side. Parks is holding a secret close to his chest. He's loved her for as long as he can remember and their close proximity is pushing him over the edge. If he tells her the truth, will he gain her forever or lose the best friend he's ever had?

Friends to lovers is a popular genre right now, and to have a chance of making it, the story needs to have all the right ingredients.
Hot alpha male-check..
Feisty heroine-check.
Friends for a long time, probably since childhood-check.
But most importantly, the characters have to leap of the page and right into your heart. This is what happened for me with One Final Chance.
