Description

Say You'll Stay From New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new standalone second chance romance.

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 . . .

    Right off the bat you are hit with all these emotions and it was ones I was not expecting. The whole book is simply breathtaking and Corinne has done an amazing job,reading the blurb I wasn't expecting all the emotional angst and feelings to hit you like that. Say You'll Stay is the second chance romance and these are one of my favourite genres and this one is just spectacular. It's so powerful it take's hold and grips onto you and never lets go, I went into this knowing it was going to amazing, but I had no idea just how much and that it wouldn't let go. Presley and Zach,lets just say you live, breath and feel throughout the story with them,it's so poignant. Bell Buckle Tennessee is where it's set, its a small town where everyone knows everyone's business. Presley has to move back here after her husband left her alone with their sons and no money. She's forced to move back to her parents ranch where she left,all the years ago,to pick up the pieces, everyone rally's round to offer their help and support. However, the one person Presley didn't expect was Zach. Presley is one of the heroines you instantly cannot help but love along with Cayden and Logan. Zach,on the other hand,you want to blame him for them being apart, but you can't. Throughout you are given pieces of their past, Presley and Zach is that young love that's all consuming, burns you whole and never lets go - it's breaks your heart when it doesn't work out. So when Zach and Presley met, for the first couple of times ,it plays with your emotions again as you feel all the hurt, heartbreak and pain, but you can't help but hope that first true love will conquer all and forgiveness will allow for second chances. This book has all the angst and feelings you could ever wish for and love, it's truly become a firm favourite read, not just for the year either.

    Corinne Michaels really does know how to get hooked into a story right from the first chapter! This story starts with a bang and not a good one at that! The first chapter really is heartbreaking, it's guts you almost immediately. It's such an emotional story. A story of first love, broken hearts and second chances. Presley is a really lovable character, she's dealt such a tragic blow I'm surprised she didn't just curl up in a ball permanently. She's such a strong women even in the times she feels weak and alone. Her love for her two boys keep her functioning and although she has to take a step back and go back to the one place she's been running from for so long it's ultimately the best thing for her and her family. Zach if I'm honest I wasn't sure about at the beginning, took me a few chapters to warm up too him. He made a massive mistake in his youth that cost him his soul mate but I think if that hadn't happened these two maybe wouldn't of worked anyway. I hated Felicia, but to be fair she was there to be hated! I wish he'd resolved that situation a bit quicker but I suppose if he'd just dumped her I'd of disliked that too! I absolutely adored Logan and Cayden. I though they were such amazing kids and and I liked that they were such a bit part of the story. Presley and Zach really are so good together, Zach is such a massive support to her and his love and devotion really did shine through. He really did become such a rock for Presley, I don't think she would of made it through in one piece without him. The secondary characters were really interesting. The Hennington boys are hot! I'm really looking forward to Wyatt's book, I'm really hoping it gonna be full of fun as he seems such a naughty character, I reckon he's gonna fall hard. It's such a beautifully written story, I really am enjoying Corinne's books and she's up there with some of my favourite authors. It's a great start to this series.

    To put it simply, this was one of the most beautiful second-chance romances I have ever had the pleasure and honour to read. This is one of those books that make you wish you could give 6 stars and has taken my top-spot of my favourite reads of 2016 so far. I went in totally blind to this story, but having read ALL of Corinne’s other books I had high hopes. I love her as an author and her writing style is superb. But this book has taken her to the next level in my opinion. It is PHENOMENAL!! It is one of those books which has left an imprint on my heart and my soul and will stay with me, quite possibly, FOREVER! I want to review this book fully, yet I really want to say the absolute minimum. I don’t think a full review could do this story justice anyway. Honestly, this book is best going in with no expectations and coming through the other end completely and utterly changed! The story revolves around Presley Benson and Zachary Hennington. They both grew up in the country, in a little town called Bell Buckle, where everyone knows everyone. In their younger years they fell in love, but as much as they (and everyone else) thought were going to last forever; they didn’t. Their lives have taken very different routes and let them down different paths. But for one reason or another Presley comes back to Bell Buckle and their paths cross again. Presley doesn’t want to be back, she’s embarrassed, she’s scared and she’s struggling through reasons outside of her control. When she comes back she knows it’s only a matter of time before she see’s Zach again. She can only hide for so long, in such a small town, when everyone wants to get involved, and Zach’s brother working on Presley’s parents’ farm. And when they do see each other again, things get tricky. There has always been a huge amount of love between these 2 characters – and it wasn’t through lack of love that they weren’t together. But so many years have passed, they are such different people, they’ve both changed and moved on. “He breaks me apart. He puts me together. He’s my poison and my antidote.” Zachary Hennington has found his way into my heart, and there he will stay. All of the other characters are beautifully written and are brilliant additions to the story. Can Zach and Presley find their way through their struggles, secrets, demons, the betrayals, the lies, the pain and the regrets? In order to see what happens, I URGE you to READ. THIS. BOOK!!! This story will take you on a journey. It broke me, I cried and I sobbed. I felt so many emotions reading this book, there is something in here that will hit you and grab you on every level. It yanked my heart out, broke it up, but then magically it stitched itself back together. I laughed, smiled, felt happy and sad, felt anger and confusion…! There are some brilliant twists and turns, with simply wonderful layers in the story to keep you hooked from the very first page to the very last. You will not be able to put this down!
