One more wonderfully romantic novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Double Trouble.
Mild-mannered Matt Coxwell has finally decided that his long-abandoned dreams are worth fighting for. In fact, it's only after he's left his marriage that he realizes he hasn't fought this hard for anything since he fell like a ton of bricks for his wife Leslie- and he'll have his dreams with or without her.
But Leslie is also having a tough time. Her job's in jeopardy, her teenage daughter has attitude to spare, and her formidable mother-in-law has moved in unexpectedly. Worse still, Matt has gone to stay with his free-spirited ex-fiancée. But before she gives Matt up, she's going to give her marriage one more chance-and maybe fall in love one more time.

Stunned Leslie has to get their rebelling teen Annette off to school, save her job from Dinkleman the hot shot barracuda, and find a way to get back the man she loves, who left for New Orleans. --- Matt has two goals neither involves competent Leslie though he admits he still loves her. He plans to appeal and get freed his client and he will fulfill his dream that he tabled to please his father by going to law school instead of becoming an author and writing a book. What Matt never factored into his giving up on his current life is Leslie who has not given up on the man she loves even if he is with his former fiancée. --- Though there is a legal procedural subplot, ONE MORE TIME is a relationship drama starring a middle aged man no longer willing to settle for anything less than his dreams even though he assumes that means giving up on the woman he has loved for almost two decades and still loves. Readers will empathize with Matt who cannot take it anymore, but also frown on his fleeing responsibilities as everyone cannot just walk away. Still they will root for him to regain his compassion for life while also hoping for a second chance at love for him and Leslie. --- Harriet Klausner
