Ashleigh Welsley, now known as Leigh West, is home for the first time in fourteen years to be at the bedside of her very ill father. She swore she was never coming back here again, but here she was. She hadn’t seen her father in all these years but he needed her now.
Fourteen years ago Ashleigh had been a naïve girl in love for the first time. She thought he loved her as well. But when she found out that her mother had given him money to break things off with her and that he accepted it, her heart had broken in two, and she left town. Since then she had achieved her dream of becoming a famous movie star. Now all she wanted to do was to be at her father’s side. As fate would have it, though, she finds herself in a predicament and who comes to her rescue but the man who has haunted her all these years, the man who broke her heart.
Hunter Hamilton is not the same young man with no money that Ashleigh ran from all those years ago. He has worked hard and is now a billionaire. One look at Ashleigh and he knew that his love for her never died. Now all he had to do was to get her to listen to him, to explain what really happened. He had to get her to forgive him and to give them a second chance.
“She would always be the one who got away…the one who took his heart with her. The one who could easily crush it with her bare hands and destroy what was left of it. If he gave her the chance.”
Hunter and Ashleigh have a lot to work through, a lot to forgive. But Hunter still hasn’t told her that he isn’t poor anymore. On top of this, of course there is a conniving fellow actress who has set her sights on Hunter. And a manipulative mother who thinks nothing of using money or whatever means available to keep them apart. But above all, the spark is still there between them. Together they burn up the pages. It doesn’t take them long to realize that they never got over each other. That all of the feelings are still there. Now if only they can work through everything to give themselves a chance at happiness.
“Maybe it was meant to be. Maybe this was the universe giving her another shot at love. If only she was strong enough to take it.”
I really enjoyed this one. I’ve read a few of Cynthia’s books now and have enjoyed every one. Once I saw how strong the attraction still was between these two, I so wanted them to get their chance at a happy ever after. You’ll have to read the book to see if they get it.
ONE LAST KISS might look at first glance like a familiar second-chance romance, but Ms. Cooke’s masterful execution makes it brilliant with some original touches, and very engaging characters. Ms. Cooke establishes her characters so firmly that I felt comfortable from the onset, I liked them, and I was hoping everything would work out all right, and that it did! Ashleigh and Hunter had compelling backstories, and I loved to watch their interactions with their families, mostly the mothers, who are as different as night and day. I loved that there was a feeling of melancholy, of a certain sadness and not rage and anger at the love that got crushed because of a misunderstanding. The issue from long-ago wasn’t resolved in the blink of an eye nor did it drag on into indescribable unpleasantness. In fact, it gave way to terrific character development and to a few unexpected and happy plot twists.
Cynthia Cooke’s writing is so smooth, ONE LAST KISS was over before I knew it, and not because it’s so short, but because it’s so good. The dialogues are excellent, and I loved how realistic – and exciting – the whole movie world looked. ONE LAST KISS is part of Tina Folsom’s Eternal Bachelors Club series, and it definitely can be read as a stand alone. ONE LAST KISS is a simple story made engrossing because of the quality of the writing, the care in creating multidimensional and appealing characters, and a solid story filled with unexpected and delightful details that held me captive. It was good to have another book by Cynthia Cooke to sink my teeth into!
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
