5 stars!


Emotional, heartwarming, swoony, and riveting- One Last Time is one of Corinne Michaels best books yet in my opinion. I loved every part of this book. And that dedication *sobs*. I thought this book would be light, and in some ways, it is, but gosh… some things hit me right in the feels, like only Corinne can do.

Kristin McGee’s life has been turned upside down. She has two children, and she’s single again for the first time in a long time. After getting a divorce from her emotionally a

O.M.G. Let me tell you, this book owned me!

From 6% in I was in love with this book and not because something crazy happened, I just fell in love with the possibilities and the hope I felt.

Noah is more than happy to do the interview to help Kristin. Once they meet Noah is completely into the idea because he is so t

I went into Corinne Michaels’ One Last Time with somewhat high expectations, knowing how well she writes and the fact that I always seem to get drawn into her storytelling so easily…… and yup, I absolutely loved it. This was a fantastic story filled with hope, promise and endless potential.

Kristin has been through a lot; she has just gotten out of an emotionally abusive relationship and as a result, is going through a pretty nasty div

This book had a lot of things that I normally avoid, such as a divorced woman with two kids as the heroine. I knew it would involve a lot of family drama but I wanted to try it because I loved some books of this writer really very much (Consolation Duet, We Own Tonight etc.).

Now, I am terribly sorry to be so much disappointed in this book...

Think of a barely OK light romance you have read before … then change names… that’s all you’ve got, nothing new or original…

FFS. This book. Let me just explain the start of this book.

I cried like a baby. It hit all the feels. It was gut-wrenching. It was realistic. It was devastating. It was how this story needed to start. It was the sharp stab of the knife, before the stitches, before the wound began to heal. It was the battle wound you needed to have before you could proudly stand, scars and all. Because you SURVIVED.

How does Ms. Michaels do this with every book? She has a way with words that reaches through the pages and just draws you in. You are in the story.

One Last Time is yet another example of how she is able to bring to life two characters and you feel every emotion that they are experiencing.

Kristin is such a strong and determined woman who has to face a life that she wasn’t expecting nor wanted.

Noah was too good to be true. To quote Kris, If wine and chocolate had a baby, it would be called Noah!

Even though the story was unbearably mushy at times, I liked it. Kris was kinda annoying with her lousy drunk persona. Not to be an ageist but most of the time I wanted to yell "You're 40 woman! Act like it!". Her giggly teen behavior around Noah was getting on my nerves. Her ex was an asshole of the worst kind, so I've decided to cut her some slack.

Her kids were cute and fun, especially Aubrey

Told you I was going to win your heart.

I'll be honest. After reading We Own Tonight I was hard core craving Nicole's book. So when Corinne annouced that the next book was going to be Kristin's I was like, what the hell?! But then she did the cover reveal and I was like...SOLD. Hands down, the best cover since Consolation, and the cover for Consolation is how I was introduced to Corinne in the first place. I couldn't wait to dig in.

Kristin's life is turned upside down when she realizes her marriage has come to an end. Now back to work while also caring for her two kids she doesn't have time for anything else, especially not a distraction in the form of the way too sexy Noah Frazier. But Noah isn't one to just walk away when he wants something - and he wants Kristin.

Kristen McGee gets her groove back after dealing with a messy divorce. Her ex-husband made her feel like a zero until she met her hero Noah Frazier.

Fantastic story of a second chance at a new love. This one has tons of chemistry between Noah and Kristin, but it's a slow burn and build up. Kristin is an extremely strong heroine that you find yourself rooting for from the very beginning. And Noah, is part smooth and part sweet and is so, so yummy. If you're looking for a standalone read, that leaves you feeling good...this one's for you. ...more

“One Last Time” takes you on the journey of life after divorce and makes you reevaluate the important things. With an effortless storytelling, funny side characters, and one heck of an emotional rollercoaster ride, this story will have you wishing for your very own Noah!

Oh man what a story! Corinne knows how to relate her books to real life. I feel that this story is extremely relatable to so many people. To have the amount of strength Kristin has to take a stand and do what’s right for your children and for yourself. Then to add sexy Noah in the mix.....holy moly what a man! This book is full of strength and swoon. Now I’m on a mission to find my Noah! Definitely recommend One Last Time as your next read!

Read this book while sitting down. Make sure there is plenty of padding on your chair or sofa (or, better yet, read it in bed) because Corinne Michaels will make you fall with a thud. You will swoon like a nineteenth-century heiress, and you will do so because of NOAH FRAZIER.

This was one of the easiest books that I've listened until now.
The narration was incredible, and I couldn't  stop until the very last word!

It's been a while since I've read something by Corinne Michaels, and I forgot how I loved her storytelling!

This story is about second chances in life and in love, and I could feel, for personal experience, everything that Kirstin had to deal everyday, with her failed marriage and her psychological abusive ex-husband!

One Last Time is Corinne Michaels latest standalone. It releases on the tails of We Own Tonight, and though they do have interconnecting characters, it reads perfectly by itself. I definitely recommend reading WOT just because it's amazing.

I LOVED LOVED this book. Noah and Kristin have this chemistry that is odd the charts. Truly swoon-worthy, which makes it hard not to fall in love with them.

Kristin's story is so much like so many others in real life, but the way she handles her life-changing events are so admirable. Her children come first every time, as they should, but her children also come first to Noah as well. When the past becomes the present, and stories become real life, it gets harder to move forward.

#SecondChanceRomance #Standalone #OlderCharacters
One Last Time is a perfect mix- a story with older characters that have baggage, children, a set of girlfriends who are forever bonded, a swoon worthy leading man and a sweet, doubting, soon to be divorced mother of two. The combination of funny and tender moments also helps to create a wonderful story that warms the heart and makes you smile. Divorce isn’t an easy topic but Corinne Michaels handles the distasteful parts with amazing girlfriends
Hey she did it! Corinne Michaels wrote a book where I didn't cry my eyes out! LOL This is actually a very lighthearted romance. It does start out a little rough with the feels but it evens out and is quite entertaining. Noah and Kristin get off to an awkward start and things just go from there. Noah has swoon to spare but I ain't complaining because wow did I like him. Kristin and her kids were definitely more than he anticipated.

There are certain authors that you can count on to make you feel all the feels and Corinne Michaels is definitely at the top of that list. I've read every book she's written and usually you're reading waiting for that shoe to drop. That moment that makes you gasp and then finds you reaching blindly for that box of tissues as she breaks your heart.

But, I will tell you this. I did not cry.

This one will resonate with you for days after....the realities of marriage and how you can go from being soulmates to strangers consumes the first few chapters and will make you want to cry...but then Noah, oh sweet Noah! He appears at the right time (and half naked no less...yum!) to ease Kristin back into living...What a swoon-worthy hunk of redemption!

You will want to reach into the pages and snatch him for yourself!

Another huge hit out of the park from Ms. Corinne! Treat yourself to this

“I know that your laugh makes my heart race. The way you smile when you think no one is watching stirs something inside me that makes me desperate for more. The way your entire face lights up when you talk about Finn and Aubrey. I know what it feels like to have you in my arms, touch your lips, and fuck, I’d be lying if I said I’m not wishing for it again. I think about you more than I should. I know that you think you’re weak, but I see a strong, beautiful, and smart woman who deserves a man to worship her. More than any of that, Kristin, I should walk out and let both our lives be a hell of a lot less complicated than trying to start something, but here I am. You’re worth complicating things.” 8 likes
