When Sarah Rawlings fell for her best friend's older brother in high school, she knew he was trouble. But she couldn't resist his pull and the sweetness she sensed underneath his protective bad boy persona. Their relationship was everything she had ever dreamed of, until she was rocked by his painful betrayal. Eleven years later, Sarah must return to Whidbey Island following her beloved grandmother's death. She knows she must stay away from Ian, but he's not making that easy and every time she sees him, she's reminded of what might have been.

One look at Sarah stirs up memories regrets that still linger in Ian McLaughlin's heart. She was the love of his life and he still can't understand how he blew it and how she could have also hurt him so badly in return. He plans to steer clear of Sarah while she's on Whidbey Island, but that's impossible when she's often at his family's pub. Thinking to indulge in a little casual seduction for fun, neither is prepared when the embers burst into flames.

So many years and secrets separate them. Can their powerful attraction also include understanding and forgiveness?

You just knew from the onset, the author was setting up all the characters for their own stories. Creepy villains, too.

One More Round by author Shelli Stevens, is a well-written steamy romance. This is the first book from her brand new series, The McLaughlins, which tells the story of a family that emigrates from Scotland, and makes a home on Whidbey Island. This story focuses on Ian McLaughlin, a good-looking guy with a successful car restoration business. Of the four McLauglin siblings, Ian is the bad boy with a heart of gold. Sarah Rawlings is a graphic artist as well as a single mom. She spent many years on Whidbey Island until her father was transferred to Japan. She and Ian were a hot item back in high school, and their time together was filled with lust and love. Due to a situation with Ian, over a decade has gone by since she stepped foot on the island. Now she has returned in order to take care of her late grandmother's modest estate. Sarah has no desire to see Ian, but she knows that a run-in with him is inevitable. Ms. Stevens does a terrific job of combining an engaging plot with hot, sexy times. The secondary characters are interesting and easy to get to know. Although this book is part of a series, it can be completely enjoyed as a standalone. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

This is the first book by this author that I have read and this is the first book in The McLaughlins series; which is republished. Former title is: Good Girl Gone Plaid. The book is a stand alone issue but each book has interconnecting characters. One More Round has great characters, a fabulous plot, little angst, no cheating, a HEA and falls into a few categories of tropes. This book is the story of Ian and Sara and it takes places on the Puget Sound of Washington State. There is 4 siblings who are from Scotland originally and it centers around the McLaughlin Pub.

Author Shelli Sevens has a way with words that seems to grab me and keep me tied to her books so tightly that I can't seems to let go. This is book one in the McLaughlins series and if is anything to go by this is going to be one crazy ride. In this book we get to know the McLaughlin family the entire clan both here in the states and those that have let for the motherland. Sarah the cheerleader and Ian the bad boy had a thing going on...yea oh yea back 11 years ago in high school then well life and Sarah's military dad got in the way. Now Sarah is back on the island to close up the house after her grandma passed away and she is hit with the will and what she has to do to actually get the inherit. OH Yes this book has lots of hidden things in it. We find out all kinds of things that are good to know going forward for the next book as well I am sure. This book was well written and I am so looking forward to more from Shelli Steven and the McLaughlins. I read this book twice...One when i originally got it off of netgalley and then when I bought it getting ready for the second book in this series. One must have the original book in their collection ya know.

One More Round by Shelli Stevens, first book in The McLaughlins series. A great start to a new series. A possible second chance at love and so much more 11 years later. I enjoyed the characters, dialogue and storyline in this book. It grabbed me from the first page and didn't let go. I look forward to reading future books in this series and more by this author.

One More Round by Shelli Stevens is book one of the McLaughlins Series and has me looking forward to reading more about the McLaughlin family. One More Round is a complicated romance of two people who are in love but have many obstacles in their path to happiness. Sarah Rawlings is a single mom who inherits her grandmother’s house with the stipulation that she has to live in it for a month before she sells it. The home is on Whidbey Island. Sarah had lived on the island while in high school and met her first love there, Ian McLaughlin. Sarah thought she could live on the island for a month and escape before anyone found out her secret. Ian McLaughlin is the high school “bad-boy” that all the girls want to date. He’s never grown up and has no plans for tying himself to a woman. Ian has made mistakes in his life and refuses to make excuses to people for judging him without knowing the full story. He finds out Sarah is on the island and, like a moth drawn to a flame, he keeps seeking her out. Their chemistry is still off the charts and soon they are spending more and more time together. Sarah can’t get over the past and the mistakes Ian has made. As a single mom, she doesn’t feel Ian is a good influence to have in her child’s life. But once Ian finds out Sarah’s secret, will he ever forgive her?? Poor Sarah and Ian! Just when you think they could forgive and forget and start over, something else happens! The book was a constant back and forth of Ian doing something to make Sarah mad, then Sarah doing something that makes Ian mad. I wish there were more blissful moments in the story and less strife. Ian needs to get over himself and tell Sarah how he truly feels, instead of acting like a heartless guy. I would highly recommend you read this book. In the end, it’s a sweet love story with a HEA. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series starring Ian’s brother, Colin. 4 stars

Loved! Loved! Loved! I am so excited about this series featuring the McLaughlin clan. In this book not only to we get to meet the McLaughlin's but we get to watch as Ian and Sarah get a second chance at love. Teenage loves Ian and Sarah thought they would spend their lives together. When secrets and lies tear them apart they both move on. Now eleven years later they are reunited. It soon becomes clear that the pull between them is still as powerful as ever. When the secrets of the past are revealed will they be able to overcome them? I can't wait for the next in the series! I highly recommend this one.

This is a very sweet and touching romance about second chances. In this case, it’s the story about Ian McLaughlin and Sarah Rawlings. HS sweethearts that were separated not only by a betrayal but also by a family transfer. Eleven years later, divorced and a single Mom, Sarah is back in Whidbey Island. She has inherited her grandmother’s house . Her goal is to stay the month required by the will , put it up on sale, and leave before she runs into Ian. Plus , she has secrets she doesn’t want to reveal. Little did she know that she that she would see him before she reaches the town. The attraction is still there but history has a way of getting in the way, as well as old hurts. The engaging plot and complex characters will keep your interest throughout the book. This is not only a story about second chances, but also about family, loyalties, misunderstandings, and hope. Looking forward to the next book in this series. I was gifted this copy by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
