One Last Play by Annah Conwell



She could be the one.

I’ve spent twelve years caring for my niece Maddie who I adopted after my sister died. Having a daughter has made me picky when it comes to the women I spend time with. Not to mention dealing with the pressure of being a college football coach.

But when I spot MJ at a mutual friend’s wedding, something draws me toward her.

My friend tells me to forget about her, but how can I when she becomes Maddie’s art teacher and our paths cross again?

I ask her out, she turns me down. Rinse and repeat. But I don’t plan on giving up any time soon.

My instincts are always right, and they’re telling me Meadow Jane Carter might just be my future wife.

My Review: 5 Stars

Y'all. This book needs to come with a warning. Something like... 


Clear your schedule before you think about starting this book because once you pick it up, you will have the hardest time putting it down and will have zero desire to adult. I may or may not have tried to get my manager to let me leave early so I could go home and read. If you're wondering, no, it did not work. She just laughed at me. 🤪

Oh my heart! Y'all! I can't even with all the swooniness! I. Can't. Even! Where should I begin? This book right here had everything I have come to love and crave in the books I read. All the feels? ✓ Swoony? ✓ Lots of kisses? ✓ Giggled/laughed out loud? ✓ Let out all the little dreamy sighs? ✓ Witty Banter? ✓ Sweet moments between characters? ✓ Counted down the minutes until I could pick the book back up? ✓

Gaaaaaaaaaaaah! You guys! I could not get enough of Meadow and Sebastian. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he just knew there was something special about her and knew that he needed her in his life. Meadow had some big walls built up around her heart and I seriously loved watching Sebastian and Maddie (his daughter) work together to take them down. Y'all. Sebastian is freaking fantastic and I loved how he loved Meadow. He was all in from the very beginning and I loved watching these two get to know each other and find their HEA. It seriously made my heart smile! 😍

And I would be remise if I didn't give a shoutout to Maddie, as well as Meadow's brothers. Y'all. They had me rolling! They were the BEST side characters ever! Like... I can't even with some of the things they did! And I cannot wait to get my hands on all the brothers' books! Eeeeeeek!

This is my very first book by Ms. Conwell and, if you haven't already guessed, it won't be my last! She sucked me in from the very beginning and refused to let me go until the very end. I found myself sneaking in reading whenever I could. I seriously love it when an author can do that! 

And of course, I can't forget my casting. *dreamy sigh* They're pretty perfect in my opinion. What do you think?
