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 . . .

My Review:

This book is heavy, sad and so completely sweet!  Corinne Michaels takes you through all the feels! I was captivated by the story from the very first page.  The things Presley had to endure was tough, and she had loving friends and family around to support her, even if she didn't want them.  Wyatt was her very best friend and I adored their relationship! He was funny, sincere, and would tell her like it was to hold her accountable.  (I hope we get his story next!)  Her boys are her world and they are learning to maneuver through this new world of theirs.  It's a struggle, but they have help along the way.

And the dynamics between Presley and Zach were interesting to watch unfold.  They were like moths to the flame and couldn't stop their pull to each other if they tried.  Their story was so sad, so sweet and oh-so-enjoyable.  If you like a good second chance story, this one is definitely not to be missed! I found myself not wanting to put the book down and I had to know what was next.  Another fantastic read from Corinne Michaels!

Contact Corinne



“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.
