I would have been stupid to turn the opportunity down.

A feature film starring the hottest man in Hollywood—and me.

It wasn’t just the chance of a lifetime; it was the first time I’d landed the leading role.

But Tanner James isn’t just any actor, aka “Sex God”.

He’s the man who took my virginity then shattered my dreams.

If I can use this part to launch a new career, it will be worth it.

If I can stop myself from falling back into bed with Tanner, it will be a miracle.

And my heart?

There’s no way he’s taking that from me.

He’s always been the one who owned it.

Every single time I read a Laurelin Paige book, I just don’t want to put it down! Every one of her books just has me hook, line and sinker from the first chapter. One More Time is no exception!

Years ago, Jenna and Tanner were THE couple. Hollywood movie gold. Until a misunderstanding breaks up their relationship and ten years later, Hollywood has them back together again.

I truly enjoyed Jenna and Tanner. The way the interact with one another, the honesty, the chemistry, all of it was simply perfect. I loved that there were no cliffhangers, very minimal angst and so many feelings, I laughed, I cried, and I enjoyed every moment of One More Time.

I am a huge Laurelin Paige fan and have read just about everything she has ever released. I first listened to this story as it was released on audio first and I loved it. Now I had a chance to read it as well and again, I absolutely loved One More Time, a second chance romance with all the feels.

This is a standalone romance based in her Hollywood book world. This time we get Tanner and Jenna’s story. They met ten years ago when they were both very young and their careers were starting. Tanner was an up and coming Australian actor getting all the right roles. Jenna has been a model for the last few years and has been wanting to make the transition into acting. They met and were instantly attracted to each other. They promptly became Jenner and were beloved celebrities.

They managed to have a successful Hollywood romance for a few years, until it all fell apart due to a misunderstanding. Rather then fight for each other, they spend ten years apart. In those years Tanner rose to A-lister status, while Jenna’s seemed to go nowhere. Now she has the role of a lifetime offered to her, however, the only catch? Tanner is her co-star. She is not ready to face him. She is not sure if she will ever be ready.

I really enjoyed Jenna and Tanner’s story. It was honest, touching and so very steamy. Does she take a chance and work with him again? Can she survive? But does she really know what happened all those years ago? Can she trust him? Tanner has been waiting for this second chance every day of those ten years, but will she even listen to him? I loved both characters so much and seeing them as people and not just celebrities.

What I loved about this story was how honest Jenna and Tanner were about their feelings and what they want. At the end of the day, even celebrities are just people and have feelings too. This was such a sweet and charming story with light angst and lots of feels.  A great second chance story!

EXCERPT

“Today meant nothing,” I say. “Our past is in the past.”

“Totally in the past. But when I’m working with you…”

I feel myself inch closer to him. “… what?”

“Sometimes I can’t tell where we leave off and our characters begin.” Is he sitting nearer than he was a few seconds ago?

“I know. I feel the same way,” I confess, and then I’m definitely moving closer to him. Definitely staring at his lips. We’re like two magnets. Simply telling them to stay apart never stops the pull.

“But that’s the job, right?” he says, and his eyes are on my mouth now.

I nod. “We have to put everything aside and just focus on the work.”

“Right. Yes. I can do that.” He’s so close we’re almost touching. Then he reaches his hand out and places it on my thigh. I feel a chill run up my body, and I close my eyes. The warm, heavy feeling of his hand is so familiar and so exciting at once. “Can you do that?”

The honest answer is that I don’t know. I open my eyes and find him staring at me. I get lost in his stare. For a moment, we hesitate.

Then the next thing I know, my lips are pressed against his and his tongue is finding its way inside my mouth. I don’t know who started it, but neither of us can deny this is what we both want in this moment. Have wanted since this afternoon. Maybe since we first saw each other outside craft services two weeks ago.

He cradles my face between his hands and shifts me closer, as though afraid I’ll break our connection.

But I’m not going anywhere. I want more. I swing my leg over to straddle him, so I can press my hips into his pelvis. I groan when I feel how hard he is, groan with the need that’s already built up unbearably between my thighs. I rock back and forth, desperate. Only a few scraps of cloth stand between us, but they’re enough to frustrate me.

He stands up, me still astride him, then he tosses me onto my back in front of him. He kneels on the ground, and I’m lying on the couch of my trailer looking up at the ceiling, and a part of me is wondering how the hell this happened again. But a much louder part of me doesn’t want it to end before we’re both naked and screaming out all our unresolved anger in orgasm.

Before I have time to register what’s happening, I feel Tanner’s fingers creep up my thighs and under my panties. He plays with me, teasing before he plunges two fingers inside my body.

I gasp in surprise and delight.

This. This is what I need.

I let my thighs fall farther apart, giving him all the access he wants. Tanner dances and swirls his fingers around, first deep inside me and then up to brush my clit. I grip the couch, nearly paralyzed in anticipation. My legs begin to shake, and I can’t remember my own name anymore. All I can think about is how incredible this feels, and how, improbably, he’s become even more talented at touching a woman over the years. Holy shit.

I’ve never been fingered like this before.

He leaves one hand to work every centimeter of my clit then takes the other and dances it up and down the inside of my thighs until I’m crying out. His free hand covers my mouth, but that doesn’t help. It isn’t until he stills that I quiet, although my hips are still rocking greedily, trying to get what I want from his fingers.

“Sshh,” he says, “Someone might still be around.”

“I don’t care,” I moan, and, in the moment, I swear I don’t. Let everyone hear how glorious this is. Tanner grins as he presses his fingers back inside me, bending them and twisting them, showing off more moves that get my body pulsing and my pussy soaking wet.

I’m going to come. I’m so close. “Fuck, Tanner, yes…”

“Yes,” he growls, and that’s all it takes to send me flying over the edge into ecstasy.

… just as someone knocks on the trailer door.

 

 

About Laurelin Paige

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
