From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new emotional and riveting standalone love story.
One night, eight years ago, she gave me peace.No names.No promises.Just two broken people, desperate to quiet their pain and grief.
In the morning, she was gone and had taken my solace with her. I left for the military that day, vowing never to return to Pennsylvania.
When my father dies, I’m forced to go home to bury him. At least I'll finally be rid of his farm, which is grown over and tangled with memories I've fought to forget.
And that’s when I find her. She’s even more beautiful than I remember and has the most adorable kid I’ve ever seen.
Years have passed, but my feelings are the same, and this time I refuse to let her go. They say you can't bury the past, and they're right. Because when long-ago secrets are exposed, rocking us both to the core, I have no choice but to watch her walk away again. . .
Second chance ⭐️
If I had known how much this story was going to make me cry, maybe I wouldn’t have picked it right now. But then, how do I miss Corinne Michaels’s ❤️ new book, especially since it’s one of the most anticipated of the year? No way, Jose!
“You’re everything I remembered and nothing I was prepared for,”
I can’t even tell you how much suffering we’re talking about here. We have an abusive husband how hurts his wife physically and emotionally, an abusive father who hurt his four sons and two lovers separated for eight painful years.
There are good news too.
Hadley, the most adorable seven-year-old. 🥰 It’s really impossible not to love her, especially when she’s all cute and funny. 🤗
Connor’s love for Ellie. Truly amazing!
“Can two people belong to one another without ever actually being together? Can you love someone without knowing them?”
“It’s as if I’ve been living in black-and-white but have just stepped into full color and the vividness of life around me is blinding.”
There are two reasons for my 4⭐️ rating. First would be the fact that i found the story to be somewhat predictable. I mean i could see where things were going and I usually prefer some surprises here and there. The second reason: the drama. It had such an impact on me, that even during “happy times” I kept thinking about the horrific events from the beginning.
Oh, I just remember something else. Declan. I don’t want to reveal anything, so i’ll just say i was tiny bit disappointed about that, just because i found it totally unnecessary and there might have been a more suitable approach.
In the end, I would just say that this book is NOT one to be missed! Definitely worth the time and money, plus, Corinne Michaels is a fantastic author and her writing is amazing.
Also, I can’t wait to read the other Arrowood brothers’ stories!
