Life as she knew it was over and she finds herself back i ...more
Corinne Michaels gave us another book where 5 stars isn't just enough!
For some reason Corinne Michaels like to set her readers straight right from the beginning. Don't read in public if you are easily affected and cry...that's what happened to me. I was so into it right from the beginning that my heart broke. As I continued I thought it couldn't get worse...but it ended in a million tiny pieces.
Presley is also left in million tiny pieces and has to swallow blow after blow. In all of this she ca ...more
Another "it’s not you, it’s me" case.
This is an (supposed to be) emotional second chance love story which sadly didn’t move me (except for the tragic event in the beginning which was indeed devastating).
I feel like I would have enjoyed the story more if it had been more focused on the main characters' past and college days instead of on the unnecessary and sometimes overly dramatic events.
Another problem is that I didn’t like the heroine and the hero was kind of boring, nothing to wr ...more
This story started off so very good and then I felt like the story jumped into hooking her back up with her ex way too quickly.
There definitely should have been more time spent on her dead husband and her feelings for him. Presley barely spent any time with her children for a mom I felt like she lacked a good connection to them. I also felt like the characters lacked depth somewhere in the feels portion for me. The heroine wasn’t my favorite character and I actually found her irritati ...more
That’s the thing about young love in a small town-it never dies.
Oh how absolutely true that statement is. I grew up moving every two years due to my dad's military career, but when I was fourteen we moved to a tiny, TINY, city in Tennessee. The city’s population, about 3,400, we had one red light and it flashed most of the time. So this story, I felt it, I knew it and honestly I lived a huge part of it. I am not sure I have ever connected so much to a story, Corinne absolutely blew me away. ...more
4.5 Second Chance Stars
He breaks me apart. He puts me together. He's my poison. And my antidote.
Gahhh I love second chance romances I think they're one of my absolute favourite genres, they get me every time. But I have to say this has hands down got to be one of favourites to date. So I'll be sure to definitely read Corinne's books again as this is a first for me where it comes to Corinne's writing. But wow I just loved how she grabbed hold of my heart and pulled me in.
Presley is from a smal ...more
4,25 'A Part of Me' Stars!
I have been hesitant to reading this book. I don't know exactly why. Maybe because I read so many mixed reviews. I was super excited about this one because I love Corinne Michaels' books and thank God I finally decided to read it: it was pretty awesome!
Say You'll Stay is the first installment in Corinne's new series called Return to Me which will feature the stories of the Hennington brothers. This story focuses on Presley Benson and Zachary Hennington, two people that ...more
In my reviews, I always try to be as fair and honest as possible. While rating, I think about it a lot as if I am still grading my students’ exam papers. A teacher’s old habit, let’s say :)
So here, I must admit first that I shouldn’t read books about "second chances in love with the same person" because I actually hate them. I cannot forgive them easily. I hate whatever reason they give for breaking up. I only feel OK if they were separated due to outside reasons such as maybe because their pare ...more
