Product Description

Product Description

Audie nominee, Best Romance Audiobook, 2015
Everyone needs to be rescued sometimes.
Everyone but Hannah Montgomery, that is. She just needs a vacation. Three weeks in New Zealand to sort out her life, figure out what she wants, seems just right. Oh, and to relax. She should definitely put that on the agenda. She certainly isn’t looking for a sexy fling with a professional rugby player, no matter how attractive he is. Hannah doesn’t do casual. But maybe just this once ...

As much as he’s shared with Hannah, Drew Callahan has kept one very big secret: that he's the captain of the All Blacks, New Zealand's international rugby team, not to mention the best-known rugby player on earth. And learning the truth, now that she’s back home again, has made Hannah warier than ever. Drew knows that she’s right for him. But how can he convince her to let down her guard enough to explore what they could have together?

Note: This romance, like New Zealand, contains some steam. If that isn't your cuppa, you may want to visit another country ... er, book.

This is my first read from this author...wasn't really sure about the length. Boy, am I glad I got it! It is an absolute must read! Plain Hannah meets very hot, super built All Blacks Rubgy Team Captain Drew....mmmmm. Romantic, funny and characters that are so realistic. You totally get caught up in the emotions, the story and their lives. I loved everything about this story especially her being very descriptive about the scenery of New Zealand giving me the feeling of being there. Two worlds collide in this book and it turns out fabulous! Can't wait to read her other books!

With Summer rapidly approaching, and the temperatures starting to rise I decided to escape with a bit of light reading.

I am not a regular chick lit reader - however, I quite enjoyed this novel. I loved that it incorporated a sampling of New Zealand's rich and beautiful culture into the plot - from the Island nation's obsession with rugby all the way to the Maori culture, and its legends. In addition, it was nice to simply read a book where I didn't have to think too hard.

On one hand, I will admit that this plot followed somewhat of a predictable pattern. However, there is something charming in this story - the idea of falling in love and escaping to New Zealand is an idea that would appeal to many readers.

In terms of the setting, New Zealand was the major factor that directed me to this book. I believe the beautiful setting added something special to this story. In addition, I loved that this novel drew in some of New Zealand's extraordinary culture - Including their love of rugby [especially the unwavering loyalty to the All Blacks], and the Maori traditions. As someone who has never been to New Zealand, I felt I got a little bit of an insight into Kiwi culture and language

The major flaw I found in this book, was that Hannah's character got to be a bit grating - her emotional flaws were acceptable up to a point. However, there came a point when the "I can't rely on anyone" routine got old. Also, I felt that this novel could have had a few less sex scenes - however, that is just a minor preference.

Ultimately, "Just this Once" was a fun and airy summer read - which was also free might I add [at the time].

If you are looking for a lighthearted, angst-free sexy romance, this is the one for you. Engaging characters, interesting plot line, and great introduction to New Zealand culture and topography. Rosalind James delivers in this wonderful addition to anyone's contemporary romance library.

Enjoyable book. Nice to see Hannah expand her horizons and grow beyond just being a responsible parent-like figure to her siblings. My only complaint is that it ended so suddenly. I would have loved to hear about their engagement and more details about their marriage.

Really enjoyed it. Lots of NZ details and language. Also lots of details about rugby, the All-Blacks and the place of rugby in NZ. Relationship between the main 2 characters was believable. I would recommend this.

This was a good read, about an insecure american girl and a New Zealand rugby player. It took a long time for her to make up her mind to enter in to a long term relationship but it all worked out in the end.
