We Own Tonight by Corinne Michaels
Narrated by Andy Arndt and Zachary Webber
Each month I try to listen to at least 2 books I already have in my library. I’m also trying to read authors that will be at Readers on the River in KY next week, so I was happy to find We Own Tonight by Corinne Michaels on my phone.
Honestly, We Own Tonight is every woman’s fantasy come true, but there are some real-life, emotional times that just completely made me fall in love with this novel. Heather is a policewoman who goes to see her favorite boy band whom she idolized 20 years ago perform a reunion concert.
“He’s too beautiful to look away from. I watch the way his chest heaves as he dances around the stage in perfect sync with the other guys. How his eyes scan the crowd but still make every woman think he’s looking right at her. It’s magnetic. He’s ridiculously sexy. Even in his forties.”
Somehow she finds herself being serenaded on stage, invited backstage, and then falling into bed with Eli Walsh, the sexy boy band singer-turned-TV star who was Heather’s long-time crush as a teen and beyond.
“We can’t worry about tomorrow, we can only own tonight. And tonight, I’m going to make sure you never forget how good we are.”
Heather has a lot going on. She raised her little sister after their parents died, and now that sister is very, very ill. Heather has no time in her life for relationships, especially with a star, but Eli has never felt a connection like that, and he isn’t about to let it go.
“Because you’re not like every other girl. You’re the first person I’ve met in what feels like forever who doesn’t seem to want something from me.” His hand pushes the hair back off my face. “You look at me like I’m just a guy, not a meal ticket. You’re gorgeous, stubborn, and there’s something more that I can’t explain. I’m not saying this will work, but I’m willing to take a chance and see what this is, are you?”
Gosh, We Own Tonight was so much more than a light rock star fantasy. It was a fast and easy read that sucked you in immediately and brought out every emotion. Corinne Michaels broke my heart, put it back together, broke it again, and repaired it again.
“I thought I knew what love was, I didn’t have a clue until you.”
- Older characters (42/38).
- I loved the friend group.
- Eli’s family.
- Stephanie. OMG, I loved her so much.
- I just wanted to give Heather a hug, she has had such a rough life.
- Eli felt real and he was totally swoony.
- I loved that Heather was a cop, you don’t see that a lot in books!
- This book hit me in all the feels.
- It can be depressing at times.
Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber were absolutely perfect for We Own Tonight. Andi’s depiction of Heather and Stephanie captured my heart, and Zachary was perfect for the sexy pop star. I think the narration totally added to my love of this book.
