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 . . .

This is a book full of smaller, harder to see, moments. Now, so we are all on the same page...a conversation with a friend, a moment when you take back a part of you that has been given to someone else, the acceptance of a child, the daily victories...these are the harder to see moments. The new job, the new house, the new relationship...those are the ones that are easier to catch. And, this is the beauty of this book.

Yes, there are some big ones, the chances to swoon. But, like life, this book is built on the small ones. The moments where you take back some thing that might have been briefly missing. And, these are the moments that matter at the end of the day...sometimes even more so than the ones that are so big you can't miss them.

But for me, it was the little ones. The shoulder of a friend. The right words at the right time. The support to close a door, literally. The smile of a child. The realization that what you want is in your reach. The realization that, finally, what someone else wants is also what you want, and that moment where you let them know.

This book builds on those little moments to get you to the big ones. Yes, I get it, you are thinking these are the big moments. But they aren't. They are the little ones, the daily win, the support of a friend in just the right moment, that let you get the courage and the strength for the big moments. The times when you forgive a person and let them back into your heart. The times you finally say yes. The times you take the risk because it's worth the reward.

Noah, from the minute he sees Kristin, knows there's something about her. Something different that draws him to her in a way he hasn't felt in a long time. Despite the warnings of their mutual friends that she is not ready for a relationship, or even to date, he decides he wants to pursue her.

Kristin was in a marriage that as bad. Bit as is often the case when you are in a situation like that, she doesn't really see it. And, when she does, she excuses it. I think, to a degree, we all do this. Until we don't anymore.

This is the story of Noah, finally finding what he has been looking for, and Kristin, finally seeing that what she thought she had wasn't real. It's the moment when you realize the man who couldn't possibly be interested is the man who wants to spend the rest of his life with you.

And, most important, for both Noah and Kristin, this book is about the moment when you realize that the person you are with is the one who loves you, who won't hurt you even if they are mad.

The journey is wonderful. This book is a joy to read. I recommend this title.

Before I can make a move either way, the glass door slides open and Noah walks through the threshold.

My legs start to quiver as his eyes meet mine. All I can think about is how I’d like to climb him like a tree and shake his coconuts. I thought he was hot in the photo, then he was better through the window, but up close, he’s otherworldly.

“Hi.” Noah’s throaty voice floats around me. “You must be Kristin.”

Instead of speaking, I stand here with my mouth hanging open. Some small sounds that could be words escape, but they aren’t coherent.

Kill me now.

“Noah, this is my best friend, Kristin. Who we told you about.” Heather elbows me.

“Yes. Me. Hi. Kristin. I. You. Hi.”

Smooth. Someone should video this because I’m sure it’s highly entertaining.

“Right.” Noah flashes a blinding smile. “I hear you’re a reporter?”

Okay, Kristin, you have to speak in more than one-word increments or grunting noises.

I grab Heather’s glass she just poured and hope it’ll act as a talisman. “Yes, for a small blog, but I’m that. A reporter. For a blog. I write.”

And a bumbling idiot.

Noah’s green eyes are filled with humor. He moves a little closer and places his hand on top of mine. “Eli filled me in a little. I’m happy I came.”

I’m pretty sure I just came. At least we’re all coming.

“Me, too.”

His lips turn up as his eyes rake my body. “See you out there.” He winks and walks back out.

My ovaries have officially disintegrated.

I turn back to Heather, who bursts out into a fit of laughter. “Oh, that was epic. You all said I was starstruck when I met Eli? You should’ve seen that!” Heather continues to laugh at my expense. “Yes. Me. Um. Blog. Er—” She mocks.

“Shut up.” I laugh—because, really, what else can I do—and bump her hip before moving around the bar and grabbing a glass. “Now, pour me a shot before I drink straight from the bottle.”

There’s only one way to get through tonight.
