From New York Times bestselling author, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming standalone romance.
I’m getting really good at cutting my losses.
First, the husband. Divorcing him was the best decision I ever made. But between single-parenting and job-hunting, I can’t catch my breath. When a celebrity blogging position falls into my lap, I’m determined to succeed.
That is, until I get my first assignment and actually see Noah Frazier for the first time . . . practically naked and dripping wet. My heart races and I forget how to form complete sentences. His chiseled abs, irresistible smirk, and crystal blue eyes are too perfect to be real. So, what do I do? Get drunk and humiliate myself, of course.
I’m ready to forget the awkward night, yet Noah has no intention of allowing me to move on. Instead, he arranges for me to write a feature on him, ensuring a lot more time together. One embarrassing moment after another, one kiss after another, and before I can stop myself, I realize—I’m falling in love with him.
But when the unthinkable happens, can I even blame him for cutting his losses?
What I wouldn’t give for just one last time . . .
Audiobook review: 2.5 stars
Kristin has all she ever wanted, a loving husband, two wonderful children and a stable home. Or at least that’s what she thought. Her husband Scott is ready to pull the plug on their marriage and as soon as possible the better. It turned out Kristin’s life wasn’t anywhere near the fairy tale she was selling to her family and friends. She and the kids leave the only home they knew and are ready to start over on their own.
A new standalone romance from the lovely Corinne Michaels who is known for delivering stories on a silver platter to her fans. This dual POV started off like throwing knives at my heart and I was feeling so sorry for poor Kristin and how she was treated by the person who was supposed to be her biggest supporter in life. Stories like these break my heart each time but also feel so grateful for having a loving and supportive better half who would never do and say the things these “men” do to their wives. Scott didn’t only betray Kristin and the marriage they promised to cherish but also their kids who deserved way better than how they were treated.
Noah was the picture perfect man. He got the highest score of them all with how understanding, loveable and simply amazing in all ways he was. I truly liked him to the moon and back but on the other hand, he was a bit too perfect. I understand we are reading fiction and most want that escape and perfection in everything but I find myself rolling eyes to it nowadays.
So even if there were parts I LOVED in this book the majority of it was like many other plots I have read. There wasn’t anything exciting or new that would keep my interest up I am afraid. And the insta-love that was so predictable before Noah even came into the picture was too much for my liking. I just need more to keep me going.
Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are like a golden couple in audiobook world and they aren’t bad at all far from it but what I have started noticing is that in pretty much each book even if the quality is still high but the performance sounds the same as in previous books. And that drags the experience down for me *sad smile*
I expected more and overall this was a mediocre case in my opinion. But I wouldn’t discourage anyone from trying it. Just because I didn’t hit it off with this book doesn’t mean others won’t.
