Summary
Spend your summer in Whisper Lake Oregon. From the Author of the Smexy, LOL Layers Series ONE MORE SHOT Book One of the Girlfriends, Goddesses, & Barflies Series * * * After a messy divorce, Dannie O'Brien has come home to Whisper Lake, Oregon. She's off men for life--vowing to the goddesses, she'll never be a huckleberry, again. * * * Dino Coletti, Manhattan's hottest bachelor doc, moves to small town—smaller lake, Oregon. Why he felt the need to leave NYC and his manwhoring ways behind him—he had no clue. Then he saw her and he knew she was the one he didn't even know he was looking for. * * * Life on Whisper Lake will never be the same when a smart mouthed, independent, wounded woman, meets a man who's convinced they're destined and she's convinced he a snake in the firs. Professional Review One More Shot by T.L. Alexander DJ Sakata's review Apr 15, 16 Favorite Quotes: “Marcie said he’s the hottest thing to hit the lake since your dad. I told her, it’s not possible. You dad is and will always be the honey to my dew.” “That’s how I knew my second husband was a keeper. I gave him the test… The third time we hooked up, I wore my biggest granniest, white cotton panties.” “If there’s one thing I know, it’s a player. Dino Coletti is a major player, and I’m not talkin’ about chess. I’m talkin’ chest. I’m not going there again, ever. This girlfriend has learned her lesson.” “I’ve been looking for you before I even knew I was looking.” “He removes three condoms and sets his wallet aside. He kisses them one by one. ‘I’ve never been so happy to see you. Come to Papa, you little gold treasures of pleasure.’” My Review: I declare TL Alexander to be the queen of witty banter, as she has more than mastered this skill. Her dialogues in One More Shot were rapid fire, hilarious, and miles beyond clever. I frequently barked, snorted, and laughed aloud as I read, and I do believe I maintained a near constant smirk throughout. The writing was crisp, whip smart, wicked funny, and engaging. The plot was interesting, relevant, observant, and unfailingly entertaining. I adored her Layer’s series but believe this book is her best work yet. Her humor is addicting, snarky, and creatively naughty. I did not want the fun to end and am already jonesing for the next installment. I may need rehab if she doesn’t hurry.

Small place, smaller lake.
Nov 12, 2016
I am officially a fan of author TL Alexander! The writing style is great without a bunch of extra characters thrown in to confuse the storyline. You learn about the people at the lake and begin to care about what each contributes to the story. One never forgets this is a romance though. It opens with the demise of her marriage as she tells it to her therapist. (Dannie, the divorcee, has a lot of baggage to go through. A lot.) The romance between Dannie and Dino is not unexpected as their Read More

awesome
Aug 29, 2017
TJ Alexander has such talent. I first heard about her work on Reading Alley with the Layers series and her work in this book is just as brilliant. Dino and Dannie are hilarious with each other and you can almost feel the sparks coming off the page when they first meet. Dannie is a fascinating women that has been through difficulties that affect her self worth and it is hard to believe in herself or believe in others; but maybe she finally realizes she is perfect how she is and others believe that Read More

A Come Back Novel
Apr 10, 2017
I'm afraid I did not get into this book as much as some others did. I don't get into goddesses and found some of the humor to be corny. I did appreciate the protagonist's courage in starting life over after a divorce and moving to a small town. The doctor seemed to good to be true but then it's fiction. The title is a clever play on words.

A fun romp in the lake!
Feb 24, 2017
This was a fun, light, sexy read. The only problem I had with it was that it was written in first person and the present tense, both of which are not my preferred styles of writing or reading. Mainly because I'm nosy and I like to know what other characters than the point-of-view protagonist are actually thinking, I guess! Personal style preference, this was a really enjoyable read. I liked Dannie, the heroine, and felt terribly sorry for her at the beginning of the book when it came to light Read More

One More Shot
Jan 15, 2017
I had received an ARC copy of this book from Reading Alley to read and review. The pilot and the pacing of the story was amazing. The characters and their development throughout the story was very good. This author's writing style was amazing. My overall impression of this book was that it's amazing. I would highly reccomend this book.

Funny, Funny Read!
Dec 29, 2016
This was a great start to a new series by T.L. Alexander, and I can't wait for the next book. I would consider this a spinoff of the Layers Series because this book's Hero is Dr. Dino Coletti and if you read the layers series you'll remember that he is the uncle of Alexia and Samantha, he has moved to a small little town in Oregon to fill a two-year medical position at the hospital. That being said you do not have to read the Layers Series in order to read this one, it can be read separately and Read More

“I will refer to you as the dumbass blond dude who’s obviously blind”
Nov 27, 2016 (Edited Nov 27, 2016)
It is quite obvious that there is a lot of banter between this story’s main characters, their conversation was always fun to read and I am pretty sure if we had the chance to read about them after the point where the book ends we would see that all that funny banter continues for the rest of their lives. Dino was a very sweet hero, from the beginning of the story he was ready and open for a romantic relationship, as soon as he saw the heroine he was determined to pursue her and no matter how Read More

Love it!
Nov 21, 2016
I absolutely loved this new series. Hot, raunchy and just a little bit naughty. The way the characters interact with one another is great and I had a good chuckle at times with the things they come out with. TL is a new favourite author of mine and I can't wait to continue on with the series.
