Say You'll Stay by Corinne Michaels

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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 . . .
** This is a STANDALONE **

Wow! Just wow! This book starts out as an emotional roller coaster and just keeps going in the best ways. Corinne is a fantastic writer. She makes her characters and story so real you just want to jump in the pages of the story and be apart of it. Meet these people and hang out to have a beer. She easily became my favorite author! Keep up the amazing work!!!!

What an emotional roller coaster!!! Beautiful story of how second chances can happen... Tragedy at the outset brings so many tears... Very different story line with so many webs woven into one great book... Ms. Michaels is a very talented author and I will anxiously await the next two books in the series - SAY YOU WANT ME and SAY YOU'RE MINE... Book is 17 years in the telling.... Great characters and as always one B*^cH to hate...

Never read a book by this author. Tons of 5 star reviews, the writing is excellent ,the small town feel very fun. The romance for me was a little predictable and cheesy. Finished it because I paid money for it. 4 stars for the storytelling.

I love a good second chance romance and Say You'll Stay did not disappoint! I was completely unprepared for the beginning and knew that I wouldn't be able to put this one down. I fell in love with the characters and with Bell Buckle, TN. This is book 1 in the author's Return to Me series of interconnected stand alones about the Hennington brothers. Zach. I am still swooning for this cowboy. He is the perfect blend of cocky and vulnerable. It's clear that although 17 years have passed between him and Presley, their feelings and connection are just as strong (if not stronger) as when they were teenagers. Yes, he lost a few points in my book for not ending things with Felicia before things started to change between him and Presley, but I loved how devoted he was to trying again once Presley returned. He was patient, understanding, and sweet as he and Presley got to know each other again as adults. They have so much history and pain to wade through, especially Presley, and the flashbacks to the past were perfectly placed to shed light on how these two got to this point. I do wish that there had been more Zach chapters though, because I often wondered what was going on in his mind. Presley. I both loved her and was annoyed by her. I understand that when things went south the first time, she was only 18, so she wasn't the most mature. Honestly, neither was Zach, but that's young love. It's all consuming and emotional. They were living off the dreams of first love and the reality didn't match up. I really liked that the story addressed that even if different choices had been made, the relationship still might not have survived. So much in life is about timing. I thought things moved a little quickly after all the tragedy Presley has faced, but at the same time not fast enough since Zach and Presley have known each other since they were kids and the spark never died. Another thing in the story that annoyed me was Felicia. I understand why there was the whole other woman plot line and that Zach would not have been unattached for 17 years, but the amount of hostility and anger towards Felicia seemed over the top. Yes, she's terrible and catty, but I was really curious as to why there was so much hate towards her. Everyone got their comeuppance though, so it all worked out ;) I definitely enjoyed the secondary characters in this book like Cooper, Angie, Grace, and the up in your business all the time residents of Bell Buckle, but I especially loved Wyatt. He's the loyal brother and best friend who wants something more. His scenes were hilarious, heartfelt, and bittersweet. I was happy to see that book 2 in the series will be his story. I really enjoyed this second chance love story and can't wait to return to my favorite town in Tennessee.

4.5 stars All I can say is have tissues ready for this story is one for up and down emotions!! It is about 270+ pages of sadness, lost love, funniness, and steamy loving with some great surrounding characters too, that I can not wait to read about in future stories. Highly recommended****

Corinne has once again ripped my heart out and then pieced it back together one little bit at a time... She broke me from the start with this story and there was no way I could not see where this story could go... What an incredibly sad, tragic, heart wrenching, BEAUTIFUL story about love, loss and betrayal. My emotions were all the place reading this and I hid at work reading it, hiding the tears in my eyes over and over again. One day read - could not put it down!? HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended!!!

The story was alright but a lot of does she or not, does he or not, a lot of sex. The drift of the story isn't bad but Presley and Zach acted like teenagers too much.

Say You'll Stay was my first Corinne Michaels book. Rarely are authors able to make me cry during a book, but I was sobbing in the beginning of this one. The journey Presley takes in order to go back home to her family--and her long-lost love--was something that broke my heart and put it back together. Reading about the side characters who are just as key to the story as Zach and Presley and the town, which is a character itself, was incredible. I recommend this author to as many people as I can when they ask for a good romance author to read.

I felt like I was dying inside without you. You were such a deep part of who I was that when you left I was empty. Can you say e-m-o-t-i-o-n-a-l.... I was in tears in the first few chapters and throughout the whole book. Corinne made me have the feels throughout this whole beautiful stunning book. Her words totally undid me. I love second chance romances and this might just be at the top of those reads. I didn't even read the blurb so I went into this book blind because really it's Corinne Michels and I love her writing so I knew it was going to be brilliant. My review had to wait, I needed to think on how to convey what this book is... Zach is home. Zach is the place that I've always known and wanted. He's a part of me and I'm a part of him Zach and Presley were each other first loves...first everything. Seventeen years ago life decisions turned their lives upside down and they broke apart. Both have been living their own lives separate from each other...Presley married and had two kids, moved to the big city leaving her life in Bell Buckle behind...literally behind. It was too heartbreaking to return for fear that she'd endure seeing her one true love. But when Presley's life as she knows it explodes, she's faced with being homeless or returning to TN. As Presley makes her way back to the town she escaped from, she needs to be I was completely blown away by the story and all the characters. Each character adds something to the story and you find yourself so immersed in their lives. You need to read this in one sitting or I should say you will want to read this in one sitting, because putting this book down is not an option. "It's not because of you Presley. It's because it's always been you." Zach and Presley belong together or at least I was hoping for them to reunite. Their love story was far from over. They are drawn to each other and both have vulnerabilities and strengths that each other needs. But can they forgive and move on? What impressed me was how they both thought of the children and what was right for them. They didn't just jump into things and out their feelings. They took things slowly and how it could affect the kids. I loved the bond that both of them seem to have with Zach. This story was just so much that I was absolutely intoxicated by Corinne's words. This story has a message and it was as I said a stunning beautiful story. This is about finding yourself, picking yourself up after losing everything you thought you knew, finding your happiness or what makes you smile. Giving yourself the choice of forgiveness and a second chance at life and love. Say You'll Stay is a complete standalone, but I'm so intrigued and excited for the next books. Yes it's going to be a series with characters intertwining. This was a joy to read and left me with a book hangover, but it was so worth it. Corinne words evade your heart, your mind, your soul. Highly Highly recommend...it's a re-read for me. 5 Soulmate Stars!!

I wanted to hurl this book across the room. The basic premise was decent but the characters were so pathetic.

Loved this book, the story line never got dull. It actually made me cry a few times. It was such a different story line which kept interest in reading. This is a true romance story. Can not wait to read more in the series.

It was an ok read. I wasn't particularly fond of the writers style of writing. While I did finish the book. I did skim many chapters. This was my first book by this author and it did not convince me to buy any of her other books.

I was browsing around to find a new audiobook to listen to, while I commute. I stumbled upon this gem of a story. I’ve never read a Corinne Michaels book before. But OMG! why did I not know of this amazing storyteller?! In the beginning of the story, I felt something was not right. Of course, it really wasn’t what I had expected but Michaels really wanted to tear at your heart a little in the first few pages.  I loved the feel of this book. The only way I can describe it is, it's like Sweet Home Alabama. The whole small town, unrequited love. Presley and Zachary’s story was never finished. They lost so many years without each other. But sometimes hurt and no closure can do that.  When Zachary and Presley finally get together, It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read/listened to. This is also one of the greatest love stories.  The narrators of this story were amazing. I loved Andi and Sawyer’s narration. Andi just really brought Presley to life. Every heartbreak, every secret, and every moment of love that filters from these characters. I felt all of them. I’m going to have to listen to more by her. They're a really great pair to listen to. And I’m a bit picky when listening to audiobooks.  Overall, I give this Five HUGE Boundless Stars. Say You’ll Stay, a beautiful, heartbreaking masterpiece.

I loved how real this book was ... that although it's a love story, it kept it honest and that isn't always easy.
