Say You’ll Stay
By Corinne Michaels
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 . . .

Honestly, Corinne Michaels could write about a phone book and it would be a best seller. This woman has so many ways with words, and every single one of her books comes out better than the last. To say this book is her best thus far is an understatement. Say you’ll Stay will be on my mind for years to come. And thats just because the story, when you add in the amazing characters…it’s even better. Y’all know me, I am a sucker for a pretty cover. And this cover, well DAMN. Zachary is the lovable, drop dead gorgeous Cowboy that all of our hearts desire, and Presley was a goner before she ever had a chance.
The amount of feels in this book, it will leave you reeling with heartache.
But never fear, the incredible woman that Corinne is will put your heart back together again, and completely heal it.
I am in awe of this woman and her ability to turn words into an incredible journey.
Corrine Micheals has done it again. Every time I pick up one of her books, I am surprised at how quickly she pulls me into the world she has created. Say You’ll Stay is no different. In fact, it’s better. Corrine broke my heart and then rebuilt it all over. You won’t want to miss out on Say You’ll Stay.
“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.
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.
