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 and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can. His gorgeous green eyes, rock-hard body, and cocky smile have no place in my world. My life is complicated enough.
Someone forgot to tell him that.
Eli is relentless. Pushing his way into my heart, wearing me down, proving he’s nothing like I assumed, and everything I need. But when my world shatters to pieces, he holds the broken bits together. Unwillingly, I fall desperately in love with him.
He made me think we’d have forever . . . I should’ve listened when he said we could only own tonight.

Book Review: 4 stars!!!
I wish I knew how to describe this book with the overwhelming story. For hors now I’m trying ti come up with the right way to write all of those things that captivated me, made me fell too much at the same time and fall in love with Eli, Heather and their journey.
First of all, We Own Tonight is the debut book for me that I read from Corinne Michaels. Some of her books have found a place on my TBR but I never had found the time to start her. They say that there is the right time for everything. Well, I think this book marked the right time for me to get introfuced into this author who I have heard bunch and bunch of praises about. And they weren’t wrong at all. Michaels is indeed one of the most superb authors out there with a very unique way of writing which blows you away and make feel a million different things in one moment.
He’s a mess, my messm but a freaking mess.
I bet we all have gone through – and still going through – that phase when we are crazy in love with some hot rock/pop star and we go all dovey eyes every time we hear his name or hear him singing. Eli was exactly that for Heather for many years. And only took one concert for that change. Heather goes with her girlfriends at the concert where Eli’s band Four Blocks Down play. When the get on stage all the girls – and the stadium – go nuts. After some songs, it’s time for the song about that “once in a lifetime girl” and that’s when the shift in Fate happens. Heather screams at Eli that she loves him; He hears her and he finds her with his eyes; he decides that he HAS to get a girl on stage for inspiration; Do I have to continue with who he chooses in the end? Well DUH, Heather obvisously. And then… One request. One night. A runaway girl. A chasing guy set on catching her.
“She is my once in a lifetime girl… she needs to feel it in her bones.”
So many things to talk about. So little time to rave about each one separately. Even now, as I go over my notes of them, I’m finding myself undecided about which should I start with. But it seems the best way to do justice to all of them is to take them one at a time as I wrote them down. So, here it goes.
One of the characters in this book that deserves, even more than the leads, my total attention, love and devotion is Heather’s sister, Stephanie. Stephanie is at her 20’s and suffers from Huntingthon’s Disease for over 7 years. And Heather was at her sister’s side for every second of it , doing every in her power for her to minimize her suffering. “Heart-breaking” is too too small of a word to describe the situation with Stephanie. Especially, when I reached the end of her circle, I was broken into a billion tiny pieces and my eyes couldn’t stop drowing in tears. And the urge I had to go and wrap Heather in a very tight hug was overwhelming. And this situation with Stephanie might was finctional, but, unfortunately, it is too common in reality and no one, patient and not, deserves to go through such a gut-wrecking pain.
From the other side, though, there was Nicole. Heather’s unique best friend. Honestly, that girl is the epitome of craziness. And of awesome best-friendship. And of great advice. To say that her addition in the story wasn’t essential and her role in pushing Eli and Heather to find their HEA not important, would be a huge crime and even greater injustice. With her own special way, she was doing what every best friend does; helping her friend find her way and get out of her shell and start living. I whole-heartenly applause her for the professional job she did.
And now it’s time to rave about the two lovebirds of this book. Heather Covey + Ellington “Eli” Walsh. The one a badass cop and the other a rock star and an actor. But they say don’t judge a book by its cover, huh? Because these two, even though it doesn’t seem so, are a match made in the upper level of Heaven and blessed by the whole crew up there. Their hilarious banter, their steaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamy sex scenes, their unbelievable discussions and the amazing way they take care of and support each other are only some of the amazingness that this relationship is made of. Through good and, especially, hard times they never gave up each other and kept doing what they were menat to do: loving each other in pieces. Both the times when Heather was suffering through grief and when Eli’s secret came to the surface, they were only loving the other harder and deeper. Their love is a love that you can’t help not feel jealous of.
“I don’t know how I ever lived before you.” I rub my thumb against his stubble. “I love you so very much.”
“I wasn’t living before you. I was waiting.”
“No more waiting.”
The way the heartbreak and the humor is combined in this story is just marvelous and something that I don’t see often during my reading journeys. Which only makes me cherish it when I find it even more. They are entwined so perfect that your heart entwines with them too in perfect harmony. The recommendation not only of this book, nut even more of this author to whoever hasn’t met her yet goes wihtout second thought. I just hope that I will get to dive into another of her stories soon.
