From New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Corinne Michaels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE romance novel.
WE OWN TONIGHT is available now!
I’m not a one-night stand kind of woman. I’m especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh.
However, that’s exactly where I find myself.
What’s a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can. His gorgeous green eyes, rock-hard body, and cocky smile have no place in my world. My life is complicated enough.
Someone forgot to tell him that.
Eli is relentless. Pushing his way into my heart, wearing me down, proving he’s nothing like I assumed, and everything I need. But when my world shatters to pieces, he holds the broken bits together. Unwillingly, I fall desperately in love with him.
He made me think we’d have forever . . . I should’ve listened when he said we could only own tonight.

The idea of one night of fun for a woman like Heather Covey, especially a night with a famous boy band frontman, is not something she would ever think would happen to someone like her, but when it does, she finds herself running scared, afraid to face her feelings for the man she’s had a celebrity crush on for many years, because everyone she loves leaves her and she’s convinced there’s nothing she can do to prevent it from happening again because a girl like her, one who has dealt with more loss and pain than most people, doesn’t know how to have hope that it won’t all end in devastation.
The way Corinne Michael’s constructs Heather’s characters will make it obvious to readers why Heather’s afraid to give her heart to Eli…why she guards her emotions with an impenetrable wall and doesn’t take risks that she knows will only hurt her. As a police officer, she made a vow to serve and protect, but she hasn’t been able to protect those she loves and her inability to do so has forced her to stop truly living for herself because her burdens are too difficult to endure anything else.
But, perhaps, with a little bit of persistence on Eli’s part and a lot of unsolicited advice from Heather’s closest friends, she’ll see that sometimes risks are worth taking, even when the outcome could potentially lead to heartache.
Eli Walsh is quite the interesting characters. Throughout his adult life, he hasn’t really had to work for anything, especially when it comes to the opposite sex, but when Heather flees his bed and turns him down, for some reason, he finds himself chasing a woman – something he’s never done before but something he’ll see through until he understands why he has the impulse to do so in the first place. Michaels makes it clear, pretty early in the story, that Eli’s hiding something that could make or break his budding friendship/relationship with Heather, Eli doesn’t stop going after Heather, proving to her exactly how he feels and working his way through her walls and making her live for herself, even when she doesn’t want or know how to, especially when more devastation threatens to submerge her into oblivion.
As a reader of Corinne Michaels’ many angsty reads, I always head into one of her stories with a bit of trepidation and a keen awareness that my heart is going to be put through the ringer, breaking off small pieces along the way as her characters experience the heartbreak that always seems to surround them. But what I’ve also learned is that regardless of how defeated her characters feel…regardless of the secrets they seem to be hiding that will unequivocally alter their relationships, weathering the storm will take them someplace better; it will provide them with a true sense of how strong they are because every time life and its many complications force them to fight with everything they are, they do it, knowing that they’ll never possibly be the people they once were.
Those exact feelings consumed me through We Own Tonight, and as one night turned into another and then another and the writing was on the wall that Heather and Eli’s lives were about to be shaken up, I held on with both hands, anticipating the moment where Michaels would bring me and her characters through the chaos finding us a little bit of light in the darkness until it could be made to shine bright again.
