He thought she was the one . . . until she walked away. Now she's back and he wants her more than ever.
As a former Marine, Xander Kingston’s writing keeps him sane. Bonus? His thrillers made him one of Hollywood’s most desired screenwriters – and also introduced him to a fledgling starlet who broke his heart.
With his close-knit family in New York, Xander returned home and found peace. Until Sasha Keaton shows up at his Hamptons retreat. Now an A-Lister, she’s as beautiful as he remembers. And just as dangerous to his heart.
Sasha learned from watching her mother to never sacrifice her dreams for anyone—only to discover how empty life could be without the man she loved. Now cast in Xander’s latest movie, she needs his insight to play the part, but secretly hopes for a second chance.
Xander has built emotional walls to keep Sasha at a distance, but their physical attraction can’t be denied. When a stalker’s threats intensify, Xander moves Sasha into his house to keep her safe. Before long she's back in his bed and making inroads in his life.
But when the danger passes and the movie wraps, Sasha and Xander face a familiar choice—put career first or give love a fighting chance.
Xander had been in love with Sasha, but clearly she didn’t feel the same way with how easily she walked away. Now years later and she’s staring in the movie based on his book. The sparks fly and truths are told. When Xander learns Sasha’s life is in danger, he has a choice to make. Will he keep the woman he loves safe, or will he keep his distance?
Sasha loved Xander, but she had to do what was best for her. Or what those around her told her was best at the time. Before she can star in the movie based on his book, she needs to make amends. Only the chemistry is there, only so much more. She’s at a crossroads in her life and has a choice to make. Will she choose the man who loves her or the job everyone expects her to? Only one way to find out.
I enjoyed this story. I read it straight through without stopping. My heart went out to both characters and I like how Phillips did it. I cannot wait to read the next in the series.
Just One Chance is book 3 in the Kingston Family Series, Xander has appeared briefly in the previous books but now its his turn.
Xander is doing what he does best, writing and now he gets to turn his work into production; when the lead actress isn’t a good fit they find him a replacement and when he finds out; he isn’t impressed. Sasha put herself first all those years ago and now she is face to face with the one all over again, just will he give her a chance or the danger that has followed her tear them apart?
I personally enjoyed this story, Xander and Sasha had great chemistry, Phillips did an amazing job with this story. I look forward to what is coming next.
