REVIEW – SAY I’M YOURS by Corinne Michaels

SYNOPSIS

From New York Times Bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new second chance standalone romance.

I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.

I’m done being invisible.
It’s time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive—everything a girl could want.

I thought I got it right this time.
That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.

I kiss him as if he’s everything. I kiss him with every fiber in my being. He’s the same man he’s always been, and I’ll show him that. He’s lost, and I want to help him find his way. If this is all I can do, I’ll be the balm to his pain.
I’ll save him by loving him.

SAY I’M YOURS is the story of the oldest Hennington brother, Trent. It can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read the previous two books and in the beginning of the story I was a little lost as to why the Heroine was so frustrated with Trent, but as the story unfolds you will get all the details surrounding the couple’s long and tumultuous history. When I say LONG, I am not exaggerating. This couple has been dating for TWENTY YEARS!! Trent and Grace have been together since she was sixteen and he was twenty-one. This is a story of first love and second chances. There’s plenty of steam and a whole lot of angst! I was thoroughly entertained!

Grace Rooney is a very likable Heroine. She’s a gal I’d be friends with and could see myself watching a chic flick and chowing down on junk food with her as well. Her only flaw is that she loves Trent a little too much and let him get away with more than he deserved. Grace is one of those women who dreams of marrying her true love and having a family with him, so why she let Trent get away with not committing to her and ”putting a ring on it”, completely baffled me. Honestly, I don’t think there is a woman out there who would wait twenty years to get that proposal. Granted she was sixteen when they started dating, but she’s now thirty-six and the woman wants to have children!

Trent Hennington is one hell of a sexy alpha male, but he’s seriously messed up inside. He’s the town Sheriff and he’s witnessed things that have scared him off from committing to a serious relationship with Grace. He’s kept her dangling by a thread for years. Every time she tries to walk away, he puts on the charm and reels her back in. He has a very hard time expressing his true feelings and ends up keeping everything bottled up inside. He’s in for a rude awakening when Grace finally has the strength to leave him because she knows she deserves more and she’s not willing to settle for less. When another man starts showing interest, it’s just the motivation Trent needs to get his act together.

Trent has been playing this push and pull game with Grace for many years now. She’s not easily swayed this time out. Her fear of having her heart torn apart again keeps her from welcoming Trent back into her arms.

Is Trent ready to commit to a forever with Grace? Will he be able to win back her heart? Or has he finally used up all his chances with her?

I really enjoyed reading this story and I loved how it wasn’t completely predictable. There’s an unexpected twist that came out of left field. Believe me, there is no way any reader will see this coming. Well now that I’ve met the eldest Hennington brother, I think I’m going to have to make it a point to meet the other two and their lady loves as well!!

She wants the whole happily ever after. Trent is the only man she’s ever loved or pictured her life with, but it’s time to face reality. She’s given him everything, & he’s just wasted her time.
