Mild-mannered Matt Coxwell has finally found something worth fighting for. In fact, it's only after he's left his marriage that he realizes he hasn't fought this hard for anything since he fell like a ton of bricks for his wife Leslie. How did their marriage shift from idyllic into idle? And is there any way back?

Leslie Coxwell, long rumored to be the most organized working mother alive, is suddenly having a tough time coping. Her job's in jeopardy, her teenage daughter has attitude to spare (well, that's not new), and her formidable mother-in-law has moved in unexpectedly...with two very large poodles. She could juggle it all with the right motivation. Unfortunately her husband, Matt - the motivation for everything Leslie has ever done - turned into a sexy, enigmatic stranger right before he walked out the door. Even better, he's gone to stay with his free-spirited ex-fiancé, the one woman who makes Leslie feel as sexy as dirty dishwater.

The only good news is that Leslie still has the greatest lingerie collection known to womankind and she's prepared to use it. After all, to give her marriage one more chance, to take the chance on falling in love one more time, she'll need all the support she can get...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "One More Time" by Deborah Cooke. Book 3 in The Coxwell series. I read this book in August 2016. This was my review. So I've been reading this series one book after the other and I would give this book a <b>2.75 out of 5 stars</b>. This book focuses on Matt Coxwell and his wife Leslie. Very different from the other books in that the main couple is already married and this book is written in third person, (the other two books were written in first person) bouncing back and forth between Matt's POV and Leslie's POV. The basic overall theme in this book is that Matt and Leslie have stopped communicating with each other. Both of them are not happy with their chosen jobs (careers), Matt being a lawyer and Leslie being a professor. So when Matt loses a case and Leslie isn't happy, Matt decides to leave her and goes back to his ex-girlfriend (the woman he dated before he met Leslie in college). Little bit of a spoiler here, but this is not one of those books where Matt actually has an affair....he doesn't end up sleeping with his ex if that's what you think. I actually liked the story line in this book because it really showed how two people can grow apart in a relationship when communication stops between them. There is also a subplot in this book involving Matt's mother and Matt and Leslie's daughter. The relationship between the daughter and her grandmother was interesting although a little rough at times. It did provide some humour throughout the story. Two reasons I only gave this book 2.75 stars. 1 - The way to open sexual dialogue Leslie has with her daughter. The daughter is only 13 or 14 years old and they are discussing sex like the daughter is in her 20s or something. I know some parents have a very open relationship with their children and discuss everything with them but it was still just a bit weird for me. 2 - After all the angst and discussions between Matt and Leslie throughout the book to get their marriage back on track, I was disappointed in the ending. Them getting back together was anticlimactic for me. I think this is the first romance I've ever read that didn't have a sex scene in it. There's a hint that Matt and Leslie do get together again at the end but it's not written. Those two points are only my own issues. Other than that, the overall story was quite good. I liked this book more than the previous two. And I am interested in finding out what happens to the fourth Coxwell sibling, Zach. (He makes an appearance in this book as well.) Zach's book is the last in this 4 book series, so I will be reading his book next.
