I received this ARC and am voluntarily providing my review. I loved One Last Risk and couldn't wait for this next in the series.

Another great read. I'm loving this series!Bring on the next book
A heartwarming story and a great second chance romance. A struggle between big city lights and starry country nights and which one wins out. This is the romantic story of Brittany and Joey who learn to love again and in turn learn so much about themselves. No spoiler here, but you'll love this book. Well written with adorable characters and an engaging plot that captures your attention and keeps it. I received an arc copy and voluntarily chose to review it.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book for my honest opinions. I grew up in a small community theres nothing like it, yes unfortunately some people do turn a blind eye but not all. Well written plot, combining family, love and romance, with doubt and vulnerabilities. I was captivated to the last page.
A heartfelt and delightful story about finding your destiny, finding your place in the world, about love and living, friends and family, life in the small town where people genuinely care for each other and look out for each other.I am loving the Bennett family, the tight-knit solidarity they have, the unit the brothers form to protect their family and loved ones when needed. The stories do entwine yet they are easily read as stand alone books. The ongoing problems their sister Rachel is having [...]
I loved returning to Oak Grove to visit with characters from the prequel and book 1. The series focuses on the adult children of the Bennett family as they finding their HEAs. This is the love story of Joey Bennett, the youngest of the three Bennett boys. We met Joey in previous books as the owner of the newest establishment in Oak Grove, the neighborhood bar and grille. He's the town playboy after having been left by his high school sweetheart who decided she's rather move to NYC than marry Joe [...]

Funny how sometimes the path people think they want to take turns out to be the wrong one for them. Or when they're thinking "there's no way I would do" and then it turns out you WILL do that! Essentially, that's the underlying theme of One Last Dance.Joey Bennett, owner of J.J.'s, a bar and grill in the small town of Oak Grove, has sworn off girls who want big city lights while Brittany Carlson, on vacation from her home in New York City, hates small towns after seeing the way an "old boy's net [...]
One Last Dance is a wonderfully emotional addition to Nancy Stopper's Oak Grove series. Wow, that was quite the mouthful, but let's go with it! I loved this book. From the characters to their romance to Nancy's writing style, everything was top notch. Rather than focusing on what I loved about One Last Dance, I'm going to talk about an element of the first book that left me with some unease and give a bit of an update. Without spoilers, of course.Like I said, there was an element in the first bo [...]
This is a great love story! Joey, owner of JJ’s in Oak Grove, is fascinated by Brittany when he meets her in his bar & grill. She is visiting a close friend who is an old friend of Joey’s. Joey has recently decided he wants a change in his life. Instead of a string of one night stands, he really wants to find someone who he can build a life with. He and Brittany seem to hit it off over the holiday weekend while she is visiting. Brittany is a small town girl who left her hometown in the r [...]
A bar owner and a city girl meet at the bar he owns and sparks fly. Is the bar owner, Joey, too country town for the city girl? Can the city girl, Brittany, become a country girl? Joey and Brittany feel the sparks, fight the attraction, and fall for each other. One Last Dance has a HEA (Happily Ever After) ending which is what I expected. I didn’t expect all the hard work they had to do to get that ending. I liked that they each had their own lives before they met. They are not a couple coming [...]
Joey Bennett didn't leave their small town in Pennsylvania to go to college or enlist, but bought a bar. He fixed it up and improved it. The bar was a great success. His fiancée from six years ago left him because she wanted the dig city of New York City and not their small town. He has just had one night stands since. He sees a woman dancing in his bar and is attracted to her. He ends up meeting her and she is Brittany visiting from New York City with her friend Karen. Brittany had a bad child [...]
Love this series, and I really enjoyed this book. The author has done a really great job of entwining the town into the books, yet making each book a stand-alone read. In One Last Dance, we got to know Joey Bennett more, and we found a man who was slow to trust due to a past break-up. When Brittany arrives in town, the attraction was instant, but she carries baggage from the effects of abusive relationships in her childhood. The author did a really great job with character development, and I tho [...]
Joey appears to have just about everything he needs in life - his family, his friends, his successful bar and a secret cabin to get away and recharge. He loves living in Oak Grove but he is not as happy as he seems. Brittany has made her own way after leaving home at 18 for life in New York City. She comes to Oak Grove to visit her friend Karen's home town. She shies away from small towns because of how much it reminds her of her childhood.She meets Joey at his bar and sparks fly. They have a im [...]
I loved One Last Dance by Nancy Stopper, the second book in her Oak Grove series. In this story we get to know Joey, brother to Lucas and owner of JJ’s, and Brittany, an aspiring architect from New York City visiting Oak Grove with her friend Karen. Joey no longer believes in love after getting his heart broken by his high school sweetheart. Trust is a major issue for him. Brittany left small town living when she was eighteen to get away from her abusive father and never planned to live in one [...]
I am really loving the Oak Grove book series! It was great reading Joey's story and why he wanted to prove himself. His honoring of his friend Kyle was so heartwarming and brought tears to my eyes. Brittany's story broke my heart but it was great to see her blossom in a small town. Joey, having sworn off of love after his high school sweetheart left and never returned. Brittany, who had grown up in the worst of circumstances in a small town. Both trying to find their way, not wanting to love bec [...]
Once again, Nancy Stopper gave a beautiful read with characters from Oak Grove that we knew in the first book. This can be a stand alone but I love when authors writing a series so we get even more in depth with the charactersThis story was a hard one to read with the main character, Brittany who came from an abuse family and ran from the small town as soon as she turned 18. Small towns are not for her, That all changed when she arrived at Oak Grove and met Joey Bennett. He wasn’t looking for [...]
I just love this series it had me hooked with the first book One last risk and this one just has good. I would love to live in Oak Grove and love reading about the Bennett family. This book is about Joey the youngest Bennett boy, but you also get a bit more information about their sister Rachel. This book is about love/lust as first sight and how a weekend maybe able to change your life for every if you are open for it. Both main characters have a history they need to face or leave behind to fin [...]
One Last Dance is not always sweet. Sometimes it's heartbreaking, others inspiring, but with Ms. Stopper emotion is as central to the journey as the main characters. Brittany's journey is to rise above an abusive childhood and learn to feel safe again. Joey seeks to mend his broken heart as he learns to trust again. Bad things, sometimes happen to good people. Only through the trials can we learn how strong we really are. Wise advice, great characters and an emotionally full filling story domina [...]
Oak Grove is a perfect place to live and their people are wonderful, but Brittany, visiting for the weekend with a friend, just is not into small towns, that what she repeats herself when she mets Joey Bennet, but the attraction seems just to strong to pull away. She is running from her past and Joey lost once his heart to her sweetheart from high school when she left to live in the big city. Can they put aside their demons and be together? A very beautiful story about love, friendship, and fami [...]
I am loving this series! Nancy Stopper is on a roll! Britanny, "the city girl", and Joey, "the small city bar owner" are a super cute couple and their story is so engaging. Britanny's backstory is so important and looking forward to the next book that will unfold it by telling Rachel's own story on this matter.In addition, Joey is a sweet character homaging veterans that are an important and essential part of our society to keep democracy and freedom.This is a standalone but I truly recommend th [...]
Oh myLoving this series. This installment had me laughing, cheering, crying and thinking. So many wonderful emotions and yet some not so happy topics in this book. Don't be scared off by the tougher topic underlying in this book. This author has an understanding way of writing too where you don't feel overwhelmed. Plus in the back of the book are links to some very worthwhile ways to help or get help. I'm diving into the next book now
One Last Dance explores the heartbreaking reality of abuse and the far reaching effects it can have. But, that is only a small part of this falling in love story. Almost love at first sight, the meet cute between Joey and Brittney is funny and sweet. This book embodies the small town feel. The characters wrap themselves around your heart. More than once I shed a tear. But there were more smiles and squirming than anything.
Joey and Brittany both struggling with their pasts and afraid to trust someone with their future. Loved how these two were so much more than they thought. Joey's pursuit of Brittany was sweet. Loved Brittany's friend and hope she gets her own book. Enjoyed seeing characters from the past book and also the set up of the next one, Rachel's story (can't wait to read). The title and scene were they dance reminded me of Brad Paisley's song.
Great story of letting the past go and learning to open your heart to love. Oak Grove Series is filled with characters you will come to love. There's friendship, family and small town charm. Brittany and Joey both have pasts that have harden their hearts. But love has a way to changing your mind and opening your heart to new possibilities. Great addition to the series. Can't wait to read the next book. No cliffhanger and hea.I voluntarily received this arc in exchange for an honest review.
Great book! I love to read series to get everyone's story. This one was no disappointment! I enjoyed every minute of it and can't wait for Rachel's story!! Brittany and Joey are so great together, just like Lucas and Sarah. Recommend Nancy Stopper's books to anyone who loves a great romance with bumps along the way!
This is the second installment to the Oak Grove series and a fantastic love story!Read full review in the 2017 November issue of InD'tale Magazine.
I want to move to Oak Grove and you will too once you read this book! Joey is sweet, strong and very sexy! Brittany tries to be a "city girl" but is a small town girl at heart! Their love story is kept me reading all night! I could not put it down. I can not wait for the next book in the series!
