I am really loving the Oak Grove book series! It was great reading Joey's story and why he wanted to prove himself. His honoring of his friend Kyle was so heartwarming and brought tears to my eyes. Brittany's story broke my heart but it was great to see her blossom in a small town. Joey, having sworn off of love after his high school sweetheart left and never returned. Brittany, who had grown up in the worst of circumstances in a small town. Both trying to find their way, not wanting to love because love meant pain. I enjoyed reading about the Bennett family and how they watch over one another. Cannot wait to read Rachel's story but I am sure it will a sad one. Well-written, fast read that will you wanting the next book in the series like now.

Once again, Nancy Stopper gave a beautiful read with characters from Oak Grove that we knew in the first book. This can be a stand alone but I love when authors writing a series so we get even more in depth with the characters This story was a hard one to read with the main character, Brittany who came from an abuse family and ran from the small town as soon as she turned 18. Small towns are not for her, That all changed when she arrived at Oak Grove and met Joey Bennett. He wasn’t looking for a relationship but once he saw Brittany he forgot all of that. The story goes into whether you can trust your instincts and follow your heart. With the two of them do they follow their heart or stay where they are.

A heartfelt and delightful story about finding your destiny, finding your place in the world, about love and living, friends and family, life in the small town where people genuinely care for each other and look out for each other. I am loving the Bennett family, the tight-knit solidarity they have, the unit the brothers form to protect their family and loved ones when needed. The stories do entwine yet they are easily read as stand alone books. The ongoing problems their sister Rachel is having in her relationship gets more insights in One Last Dance, and the abuse she faces might be a trigger to some. The tragic, terrifying situation Rachel lives with is painted with realistic and vivid, heartbreaking images, I have to say I am anxiously looking forward to her story coming up next month. But One Last Dance is about Joey Bennett and Brittany Carlson. Joye, the former happy go lucky from fling to fling guy is looking at the happiness his brother has found and is longing for something more to his life as well. His business is going well, he volunteers his time to a great cause, and his dedication to help veterans and raise awareness of their needs is admirable. Joye is easy to like, he has charm, wit, and charisma. His protectiveness towards his sister is fierce, and eventually, his temper gets him in trouble. He had his heart broken once by a girl longing for the city lights, yet he is learning that some risks are worth to take to find your place in life. Brittany has thick walls around her, to protect her secrets and hold herself together, to keep going. She has a temper to match Joye's, but her heart is golden, her desire to serve and help others is genuine, and her feelings towards Joye are unavoidable. The abused girl in her sees the reality Rachel is living in, by looking in her eyes. With Brittany's help, the situation with Rachel starts finally unravel as the family finds more about her life. There is a lot going on in the story, with the family, and with Joye and Brittany. The connection between them is adorable and passionate. They are so perfect together, perfect for each other, despite the seemingly opposite lifestyles. I loved how they supported each other, how well they fit with each other and their interests in life. They do things together that they both enjoy and that brings them even closer together. The development of their characters, the healing and the growing they absorb through their journey is remarkable. Even though the events in the book all happen within a short time period, a lot of living and learning is done during those days. The feelings, the emotions, the relationship developing between Joye and Brittany is believable, solid, sweet, and taking deep roots. I'm really liking this series and the range of emotions and life the stories hold. One Last Dance is a great addition to the saga of the Bennett family and left me excitedly waiting for the next installment. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

I am loving this series! Nancy Stopper is on a roll! Britanny, "the city girl", and Joey, "the small city bar owner" are a super cute couple and their story is so engaging. Britanny's backstory is so important and looking forward to the next book that will unfold it by telling Rachel's own story on this matter. In addition, Joey is a sweet character homaging veterans that are an important and essential part of our society to keep democracy and freedom. This is a standalone but I truly recommend the Oak Grove series as a whole.

I loved One Last Dance by Marilyn Stopper, the second book in her Oak Grove series. In this story we get to know Joey, brother to Lucas and owner of JJ’s, and Brittany, an aspiring architect from New York City visiting Oak Grove with her friend Karen. Joey no longer believes in love after getting his heart broken by his high school sweetheart. Trust is a major issue for him. Brittany left small town living when she was eighteen to get away from her abusive father and never planned to live in one again. She also lacks trust in men after her treatment by her father. Brittany is the first woman to interest Joey since his ex left him, so Joey works hard to not only convince Brittany on the wonders of his city. Joey’s sister Rachel makes an appearance and Ms. Stopper gives us a peek of the abusive relationship she is in. Since no one ever helped Brittany, she tries to help Rachel. Both Joey and Brittany need to figure out if they are capable of trusting each other. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. This was a sexy, fun, and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters. I loved the fact Ms. Stopper honored those who served our country in this story; from Honor Beer to the housing for those injured during the war. I highly recommend this book to other readers and am looking forward to the next entry in this series which is supposed to feature Rachel. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

One Last Dance is a sweet, entertaining and delightful love story. The story is an inspiring story full of romance, passion and emotion. Unfortunately, bad things happen to good people but the trials and pains can create a stronger person within. With a man that is not willing to give up while going all out to show you what you can have, what hope does Brittany have? Joey is every women’s dream. He is passionate, emotional and would do anything for you. The characters are entertaining and well developed. The story line is fresh and moves along at a good pace. This is a sweet and delightful story that will captivate you and keep your attention from the beginning to the end. This story hooked me from the very start and I could not put it down. So many emotions put together in one book that causes an emotional overload. You will finish this book with faith and hope in love no matter what pain and loss you might have experienced in the past. There is someone special out there for every person despite your quirks while being your comfort and holding your heart. This is the second book I have read by Nancy Stopper and will definitely not be my last. The Oak Grove series has been a great series to read. Nancy Stopper does a great job on each aspect in her books. She really seems to do a great job at the research behind it to give the book a realistic feel that keeps you connected to the characters. I recommend this book (and the series) to anyone that enjoys sweet and passionate romance stories.

Oak Grove is a perfect place to live and their people are wonderful, but Brittany, visiting for the weekend with a friend, just is not into small towns, that what she repeats herself when she mets Joey Bennet, but the attraction seems just to strong to pull away. She is running from her past and Joey lost once his heart to her sweetheart from high school when she left to live in the big city. Can they put aside their demons and be together? A very beautiful story about love, friendship, and family

One Last Dance is not always sweet. Sometimes it's heartbreaking, others inspiring, but with Ms. Stopper emotion is as central to the journey as the main characters. Brittany's journey is to rise above an abusive childhood and learn to feel safe again. Joey seeks to mend his broken heart as he learns to trust again. Bad things, sometimes happen to good people. Only through the trials can we learn how strong we really are. Wise advice, great characters and an emotionally fulfilling story dominate the pages of One Last Dance.
