REVIEW: Say You'll Stay by Corinne Michaels

Say You’ll Stay

Author: Corinne Michaels
Release Date: June 20, 2016

Genre: Contemporary Romance

If you're looking to get in on the ground floor of a new Corinne Michaels series, Say You'll Stay is a her newest book with the promise of at least 2 more to come. 

In this first book in the series we're introduced two families, Presley's and Zach's ranching families, getting a taste of their histories in the small town of Bell Buckle, but mainly what we observe is Presley and Zach and their messed up relationship. These two have a wonderful and yet painful past that is now made difficult with Presley's current loss and having to deal with coming home...and all of the secrets she's keeping to herself. Throw in the fact that Zach is now dating Presley's arch-nemesis and things get complicated really fast; these two have a history together that they can't seem to escape though Presley actively tries to fight it, a fight she absolutely loses (thank god). 

Corinne Michaels gives us not only a love note to second chances at love but she also gives us a loving look at the beauty (and frustrations) of small town living in the south. Presley's immersion into both proves to be hesitant and sometimes infuriating--will she accept what they both have to offer or not? Can it work or not? Can Zach and Presley forgive and forget, learn to trust ...or not? Will the town give them time and space? And just when you think you know, you don't! It's a bumpy ride, y'all, so hold on tight. As noted, though, there's a lot of beauty in the midst of all the pain and hurt--loving families and friends, a tight knit community, and a vastness that feels only possible in ranching communities--and it's the beauty that helps take the edge off the hard stuff.

If you're looking for a second chance romance, cowboys, or having a larger than life love in a small town this might be just the series for you--and if you love it, Wyatt and Trent (Zach's brothers) have books coming out this year!

One word.

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 . . .

** This book is a STANDALONE **

“Hey.” Zach peers at me as I shake off my thoughts. “I figured you’d be asleep.” He climbs the steps slowly as I get to my feet.
“I figured you’d be gone.”
I walk toward him, unsure of why he’s here. “I left for a bit, but wanted to come check on you.”
He snickers. “I couldn’t sleep.”
“Me either.” He’s close enough that I can smell his cologne. Even after a long night, being in the woods, he smells like home.
I take another step.
Then another.
I’m so close I have to tilt my head to look into his eyes.
I breathe him in, feel his heat, and I can’t stop myself. I want him. I need him. I grip his neck and yank his mouth to mine. I kiss him. I kiss him and give in to everything I’ve been feeling. He doesn’t waste a second. His arms wrap around me, holding my body against his. My fingers grip his neck, keeping him exactly where I need him. This kiss is frantic, but God it feels good.
