Say You Won’t Let Go
by Corinne Michaels

Emily Young had two goals in her life:
1. Make it big in country music.
2. Get the hell out of Bell Buckle.

She was doing it. She was on her way, until Cooper Townsend landed backstage at her show in Dallas.

This gorgeous, rugged, man of few words was one cowboy she couldn’t afford to let distract her. But with his slow smile and rough hands, she just couldn’t keep away.

With outside forces conspiring against them, Cooper hires the McKay-Taggart team to protect her. Emily refuses to let Cooper get hurt because of her. All she wants is to hold onto him, but she knows the right thing to do is to let go . . .


My Review:

5 Stars!

Another amazing book by Ms. Michaels.

I loved Cooper’s role in Say I’m Yours. He was so sweet with Grace but with Emily, he is HOT! I loved the added bit of suspense/mystery in this book. I honestly couldn’t put it down. I am so happy that Emily and Copper got their Happily Ever After!

The 3rd book in Corinne Michael’s Return to Me series:

Say I’m Yours
by Corinne Michaels

From New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new second chance standalone romance.

I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.

I’m done being invisible.
It’s time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive—everything a girl could want.

I thought I got it right this time.
That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.


My Review:

5 Stars!

Oh boy, Trent Hennington.

I just love the Hennington boys.  I also love that they are all present throughout this series.  I am so happy that Grace and Trent got their Happily Ever After!

Grace is so sweet.  She loves Trent so much and has for many many years.  All she wants is to feel that he loves her too.  Trent loves Grace but doesn’t realize that he isn’t showing it in the right ways.

Their relationship has to fall apart in order for it to fall back together again.  The rollercoaster of emotions keeps you reading and coming back for more.

Magnolia Road

Another book that I reviewed for another blog:

Magnolia Road
by J. Lynn Bailey

On the outside, Bryce Hayes is satisfied with the structure of her life, her demanding career, and a series of no-strings-attached relationships, but her brother bounces in and out of rehab, her mother thinks she can beat her son’s addiction, and her father is simply doing what he can to keep a semblance of “normal”. When Bryce’s father, Congressman Hayes, orders her to Granite Harbor, Maine, due to a string of threats to their family coming from an unidentifiable source, she doesn’t expect Ethan Casey, the sexy soldier who slept with her, then walked out, without so much as a goodbye, to be her landlord.

Ethan’s past is riddled with chaos, bullets, and loud noise. After returning to his small town after the war, he’s determined to get back to his roots. Peace, quiet, and working as a game warden for the Maine Warden Service sounds right as rain. But with Bryce in Granite Harbor, staying in his house on Magnolia Road, Ethan can’t stop thinking about his future—and that includes Bryce. But to make things right with the love of his life, he’ll have to open old wounds…and risk losing her forever.


My Review:

4 Stars!

I wish I would have known that this book was part of a series before starting it. You do not need to read the other books to understand this one. However, after reading this one, I immediately sought out the others and cannot wait to start them!

Magnolia Road is captivating! I will mention that it hits on some heavy topics: PTSD and drug abuse. Some of the parts were very intense but I could not stop reading.

Ethan and Bryce have incredible chemistry and I just loved reading about both of them. I found them both to be incredibly relatable which is sometimes difficult for me to find in books. This is definitely a book (and series) to add to your TBR list!

Say You Want Me
by Corinne Michaels

There’s no way I’ll fall for Wyatt Hennington.

He can keep his Southern drawl, irresistible smile, and those pick-up lines all to himself. I made the mistake of sleeping with him not once, but twice. I’m not stupid enough to give him round three, especially after he left me in the middle of the night so I could see myself out. I vow to return to Philadelphia and forget him.

It proves easier said than done.

When the doctor informs me I’m the winner of door prize number two, I put my life on hold and head back to Bell Buckle. Three months and if we can’t make this work, I’m gone.

The problem is–when the cards are stacked against us, and I can’t bring myself to leave him, I’ll finally know if he truly loves me or if all my fears were real . . .


My Review:

5 Stars!

It took me less than 24 hours to finish this book because I just couldn’t put it down!

Wyatt Hennington, OMG. I thought I loved him from his role in Say You’ll Stay. I had no idea that I would continue to fall in love with him over and over again. This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster but I LOVED it so much! I am struggling even to describe just how much I loved this book. Corinne has done it again. I continue to devour all of her books. On to the next…

The First Cut 
by Ellery Kane

There’s a thin line between love and murder.

When “Love Doctors” Ian and Kate Culpepper are brutally murdered in their Carmel mansion on Valentine’s Day, Ava knows it’s karma. Because Ian’s leaving her for perfect Kate four years ago had cut her bone deep. And then they had the nerve to show up here, on her turf. With their perfect house and their perfect daughter and their matching perfect smiles.

It’s no wonder Ava can’t stop watching. It’s no wonder she can’t let go.

But Ian is far from perfect, and Ava owes a debt too. For the unforgivable thing they’d done together. The dark deed that severed their marriage in two. When Ava’s name is found inked in blood at the crime scene, a reckoning seems inevitable. Someone knows what she’s hiding. Someone sees what she’s done. And karma is ready to collect its pound of flesh.


My Review:

4.5 Stars!

I did not realize this book was number 3 in a series until starting it. I was a little lost at the beginning but I quickly caught on. This is the first psychological thriller that I have read in a while and it was definitely a great pick!

I won’t go into too much detail because I do not want to post any spoilers but this author’s writing is captivating. I was sucked in from the very beginning! I absolutely love the use of newspaper articles and flashbacks to help tell the story and to give different perspectives of the plot events. Ava is a very interesting and strange character but I feel sympathetic based on her past.

I am currently adding the first two books of this series to my TBR list and starting them as soon as possible! If you enjoy fast-paced and chilling psychological thrillers, this book is definitely for you!

Say You’ll Stay

Say You’ll Stay

I was introduced to Corinne Michael’s late in 2018.  I read her Salvation Series and devoured most of the titles.  I decided in 2019, that I wanted to read ALL of her books before her new book releases at the end of January.  So, I started with the Return to Me Series.  Needless to say, I finished the first book in just 2 days.sayyoullstay

Say You’ll Stay
by Corinne Michaels

One word.

Stay.
It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him.

That was seventeen years ago.

I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.

Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.

This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . .


My Review:

5 Stars!

I am not quite sure how she does it but Corinne has a way of captivating me with her characters. When I picked up The Salvation Series, I could not put it down – it consumed me. This book was no different.

Zachary and Presley are reunited in their small hometown and everyone seems to see that their love is still surrounding them…. except for them. Watching them fall back together was absolute perfection. I love how real their relationship feels – yes, they fight. But their fights, big or small, help them to realize how strong their love is for one another.

I’ve already started to fall in love with Wyatt Hennington from his supporting role in this book. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series which is all about him!
