Rockstar drummer Julian Grayson went for coffee and forgot his wallet. No big deal. Until Charlotte offers to pay for his coffee and he gets furious. All he can think about is that she probably recognized him and his paying his coffee in exchange for something. The thing is, she has no idea who he is or why he’s reacting so strange, but he doesn’t correct her. He plays along as soon as he realizes that she’s different, and he likes it. A lot.

This is third, and final, in the series and I definitely recommend reading them in order. More, I recommend reading This Is Our Song to pick up Riley's story because he's pretty present, too. You can decide whether to pick up the others in that series (Our Song is fourth there). I didn't but that's because I bounced off the first so hard.

This was a frankly disappointing wrap-up, though not because it ruined anything with the band. Julian hasn't been present much in the other stories so I didn't

Moving On

I was absolutely thrilled to read book three, Band on the Run. When Julian Grayson, member of the band catches his fiancée who is cheating. He decides to take a break from the romance and help out someone else in life.

Julian Grayson finally arrived home after being away for many months. He felt just awkward, sticky and unclean. He really needed a shower. As he entered his large gorgeous home it still made him feel so uncomfortable. Everything was made him uncomfortable

Decisions…..they define certain moments in our life. They can be unforgettable, tragic and even romantic. For Julian – his wedding was such a defining moment. Years led up to that day that should have been the happiest moment in his life. Instead – it was a ‘learning’ moment for everyone at the event. Those revelations led Julian to flee everything that he held dear in life. To rediscover what he was doing with his life, and find a way to put the revelations about Dena in his past.

Do you believe that a random act of kindness can change your life?
Social worker Charlotte Clark pays it forward and buys coffee and muffins for the unkempt, cranky guy ahead of her in line at her local coffee shop. The man starts to argue with her and she smiles and responds ‘pay it forward.’ Charlotte has no clue that she’s bought Shaughnessy drummer Julian Grayson breakfast while Julian has no idea what ‘pay it forward means.’ Charlotte’s charity drew me into the story. She is genuine, compass
This was a great read - a sweet romance that doesn't have a ton of angst. It's more about the character development than the drama. Which is what I've come to depend on from this Band on the Run series. Not sugary sweet but sweet none-the-less. The heroine was fantastic - a social worker with a big heart who also isn't afraid to stand up for herself or others. She was a breath of fresh air. All in all, I really enjoyed this one. It was heartwarming and sweet which is exactly what I've come to ex ...more
This was a solid 4.5 read for me. A wonderful way to wrap up the bands tale! Chase masterfully draws the readers straight into the storytelling with heartfelt emotional connections and an engaging plot. Just the perfect amount real honest people, drama and life circumstances and deep and undeniable love. I flat out loved it.

I received this ARC copy of One More Moment from SOURCEBOOKS Casablanca. This is my honest and voluntary review. One More Moment is set for publication Sept. 4, 2018.

One More Moment by Samantha Chase in the third book in her Band on the Run series, but the first I read and loved it! I am definitely going back and reading the previous books! This story was unexpectedly sweet and charming.

Julian Grayson is tired and needs a break. He loves his band, but with a cheating fiancé and always being in the spotlight, he needed to get away. And when a friendly woman offers to pay for his coffee when he forgot his wallet, he thinks she has ulterior motives. All Charlo

Taking time off from the band and the spotlight is the right thing for Julian Grayson. He needs time to sort through the anger and get past it after the betrayal of his bride-to-be, but it isn't easy since her betrayal has cost him a lot. However, the moment he meets Charlotte Clark, he finds he's more alive than he's ever been, especially since she doesn't know who he is. Yet, the more time they spend together, the more Julian discovers how different Charlotte and his ex are. Will Julian be abl

The opening of this book pulls you in immediately. Its his wedding day, and his wedding day doesn't happen so he sets off for 3 months of soul searching/time out time. He is crashing at a house in Malibu picking up the pieces of his life and trying to figure it out. He's a famous drummer in the band Shaughnessy Brothers.

Enter Charlotte.....

Charlotte is a happy, friendly, do-gooder. She is at a coffee shop, waiting in line behind this guy who looks like he's down on his luck. She is a social work

She offers to pay for his coffee when she orders his and he is angry and dismayed and follows her out of the coffee shop.

In life and in love we tend to take ourselves too seriously. One More Moment is a complicated tale of hardship and appreciation for the simple things. The key to living is to not sweat the small stuff but enjoy the important moments. Julian and Charlotte have much to learn about life, love and each other. Samantha Chase takes readers on an insightful and entertaining road trip.

The Shaughnessy Brothers: Band on the Run series has been one I have enjoyed throughout and One More Moment was a perfect addition! I will say that this book will be more enjoyable if you have read the others in the series. The other characters are present and having some knowledge of their backstory is helpful.

If one word could sum up this book, it might be “unexpected.” Many of us have the memory of a small, seemingly random act that turned into more than we imagined. When vocational counselor Charlotte Clark buys a coffee for the guy ahead of her in line, she thinks he's in the same dire straits as her clients, possibly even homeless. She tells him not to worry about repaying her, but to pay it forward. After a few more not-so-random encounters they get to know each other a little better. Imagine Ch ...more

It’s always sad to finish the last book in a series and say goodbye to characters you’ve come to love. In ONE MORE MOMENT by Samantha Chase, we’re saying goodbye to the members of the world-famous rock band “Shaughnessey” and the women who love them. The final story belongs to drummer Julian Greyson who, after bringing their wedding to a complete halt by totally embarrassing his cheating fiancée in front of the wedding guests, takes a break from the band a

It’s always a bittersweet moment for me when a series I’ve enjoyed comes to a close – but what a story to finish off the Shaughnessy Brothers: Band on the Run series. If you need a feel good romance in your life right now, this is the story you’ll want to pick up. Charlotte is that heroine you’ll fall in love with and want for your best friend. She’s upbeat, sees the good in all people, gives far beyond the criteria of her “job” and is simply a good, nice person. Her

This is the third book in the series, and somehow I missed the earlier ones, but will be rectifying that when I find the time. I have however read many Samantha Chase novels and enjoyed them all - so was certain this would be good. If you are a big fan of rockstar romances, like me, then you will definitely enjoy this one.

There is so much I could say about this book, and it would all be true.

On his wedding day, he decides he needs a break and does the unthinkable. He outs his fiancee's cheating on him to everyone just before they say their vows.

This can totally be read as a stand alone story, but i would bet it would still be nice to know more of the previous characters stories, however enough is given in this book to keep you in the know.

How do you spend a relaxing week at the beach? You load up on books and you definitely include this one.

The Band Shaughnessy has had its fair share of trouble with its bandmates and Julian Grayson is not immune. Fresh off a three month hiatus from life he has decided that maybe it’s time for him to quit the band. A very public breakup from his ex-fiancée and a circus of rumors of her infidelity he’s pretty sure he wants to quit everything. He just wants to live a life o

I loved this book to feature the last of the members of the band Shaughnessy. Julian, the drummer of the band has been a bit of an enigma throughout the series, and he definitely came into his own in this book. Throughout the other books each of the band members have at least once worried about Julian's horrible relationship with Dena, the woman who took and took and took from Julian but gave him nothing much in return. The first chapter of the book was definitely over-the-top as Julian finally ...more

Once again I didn't realise that this was a part of a 'series'. That being said it didn't lessen my enjoyment, I didn't feel as though I was at all at a disadvantage. I would have preferred to start at the beginning and read the other couples stories, but that was my issue with not checking!

I have added the rest of the books to my TBR list (which is just growing and growing!)

This story was a great tale of forgiveness, love, and generosity.

An emotional read full of heart and sweet heat. One More Moment had me hooked from the jaw dropping beginning! Quickly turning into such a sweet story that was bursting at the seams with seriously swoony romance and heartfelt emotion. Julian and Charlotte’s story swept me off my feet!
A rockstar on the run after a horrible relationship, Julian is hiding from everyone and everything and truly lost. I couldn’t help but find myself drawn to Julian. My heart ached for him and all he had been through.

I was completely wrapped up in his story from the very beginning. Samantha has a way with her writing that pulls you in to the story. Not only making it easy for you to visualize everything happening, but also pulls you in emotionally. You feel what the characters are feeling.

So let me tell you what THE best part of this book was ….. Charlotte Clark! What an incredible character this author created. And a perfect match for our hero. This woman was everything we all aspire to be …strong and independent, the glass was always half full and sunshine peeked thru cloudy skies. Man, I loved her! And yes, Julian is likeable also but Charlotte … yeah. She made this story stand out.

The last of the Band on the Run stories packed a bit of a punch on all fronts. It was bitterswee
