Publisher's Summary

To Nashville Assassins leading scoring center Phillip Anderson, playing hockey has always been easy - as natural as breathing. His life is no different. That's until his world is turned upside down by the death of his sister. While mourning his loss, Phillip has to find a way to make his very angry 16-year-old niece, Claire, happy. Now, as her guardian, he discovers the only thing that seems to heal her lonely heart is dance class. For Reese Allen, dancing has always been part of her soul. After having her heart broken in New York, she comes home with the determination to make her dance studio one of the best in Tennessee and succeeds. When she sees Claire dance for the first time, she knows that the girl is bound for greatness and takes the troubled teen under her wing. Using dance as therapy, she suddenly finds herself bound to the young woman... and her hot-as-sin uncle. From the moment Phillip and Reese meet, the attraction is undeniable. Soon, they are more than willing to spend just one night tangled in the sheets. One night turns into two, and two turns into three, until they find themselves in a repeated dance of "One Last Time" that has the potential to be something more... if only Reese and Claire allow it. Can Phillip find a way to thaw the hearts of both the women in his life, or will he be forever trying to break them away from their pasts?

Contains mature themes.

The power of dance and a mentor.

Phillip has recently found himself the sole guardian of his very unhappy and resentful niece, Claire. While he has always loved her, Claire doesn't see it that way. Moving her to live with him in Nashville, he desperately tries to get her the help she needs and form a bond with her. In an effort to make Claire feel like she has a true home (as opposed to constantly traveling with him), Phillip arranges for her to stay with Harper and her family when Phillip is out of town. It is here that Reese, Harper's younger sister, first sees Claire dancing. Recognizing raw talent, she offers Claire the opportunity to dance for her studio. To Phillip's astonishment, this helps more than anything else he's done for Claire, including counseling (which she hated and where she lied to her therapist continually).

Reese as burned by a man while she was living in New York and has vowed to never get that close to a man again. She has a policy that she only ever sleeps with a man once, he always comes to her place, and he never sleeps over. When Phillip comes into her life, she finds herself feeling things that terrify her and forming a bond she doesn't want. Regardless of what happens between her and Phillip though, she refuses to let their relationship impact her relationship with Claire.

Over the course of the book, Claire warms up to Phillip with the help of Reese and dance. The three do find their HEA by the end of the book and there is no cliffhanger. This book can be read as a stand-alone if desired, but I would highly recommend reading the rest of the Assassins series.

Sporting Good Time

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have really enjoyed the Assassins series. I love how we get to have updates about previous books' characters and the whole franchise feels like a team.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I was dying to find out how things would turn out with the couple and get the updates on all the marriages and children of previous couples!

She wants him, he wants her, but...

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook in the Nashville Assassins series. Phillip is an interesting character, who I liked in the previous books. Once quite the ladies man, he’s smitten with Reese who owns a dance school in Nashville. Burned badly by a past love, Reese is the ultimate commitment phobic. Phillip suddenly has custody of his teenage niece who is rebellious and angry. Finding out that she has a huge love of dance, he enrolls her in Reese’s school. Can they have a relationship that’s more than friends with benefits? Narration was very well done.
