REVIEW – ONE MORE TIME by Laurelin Paige


A scorching, heart-tugging new standalone by New York Times
bestselling author Laurelin Paige!

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.

2nd Blurb:

Ten years ago, we were the toast of the town.
Tanner’s acting career had just begun. He was hotter than the stage lights, and twice as captivating. The gorgeous Australian A-lister was everyone’s teenage dream. And he’d picked me. Or so I thought, until he proved to be as false as everything else about Hollywood. Now I’ve finally scored the perfect opportunity to star in a major film. The kicker? Tanner will be my co- star. I don’t know if I can do this one more time….

Right now, we’re the talk of the town.
Jenna’s even more beautiful than she was the last time we were together. And just like before, I can’t keep my hands off her. She still doesn’t know the truth. The secret of what really happened back then. Now I have the length of this shoot to convince her to rewrite our script. But if I have her one more time, will once ever be enough?

It’s been ten years—you’d think hearing that she doesn’t want to see me would have stopped hurting by now. But Jenna’s a wound that won’t heal.


ONE MORE TIME is a steamy second chance romance between a Hollywood A-list actor and a beautiful supermodel who is about to get a big break with her acting career. Romances with Hollywood actors are one of my favorites and Laurelin Paige delivered with this one. There is not a doubt in my mind that her fans are going to fall in love with her latest Hero, Tanner James. I could not get enough of this character and am a little sad that this is a standalone because I wouldn’t mind spending more time with him.

It’s been ten years since Tanner James and Jenna Stahl were Hollywood’s ”IT” couple. You’d think that ten years would be enough time to get over the pain and regret from the past, but neither Tanner nor Jenna have been able to move on completely from their time together. They were each other’s first loves when they were still teenagers and just starting out in their careers. Now after so many years apart, they are about to be thrown into each other’s lives again when they land the leading roles in a romantic comedy which is being directed by one of Hollywood’s most sought-after and hottest Directors. Jenna’s days as America’s top model are nearing its end and she’s been trying for almost four years to get her acting career going. This opportunity is bittersweet because it will definitely make her a Hollywood A-Lister but she’ll also have to spend a lot of time being up close and personal with the one man who shattered her heart.

While Jenna is dreading being in Tanner’s presence, he couldn’t be more thrilled and he’s a little more than hurt when Jenna makes it clear that they are to keep things professional and there will be no room for anything else between them. Once we meet and get to know Tanner it becomes quite obvious that there’s more to the story of the couple’s breakup.



Jenna’s plans to keep Tanner at a distance proved to be futile. She’s no match against his charms and her resolve quickly dwindles. Time has not extinguished the scorching hot chemistry the couple has between the sheets and soon enough they agree to keep their affair secret and also nothing more than sexual.

How long can they fool the paparazzi and themselves with their charade as a ”fake” couple? Can Tanner and Jenna truly have a second chance when the same Hollywood trappings from the past still exist in the present?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 4
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

ONE MORE TIME is currently available! Hoping you’ll enjoy it as much as I have!
