Review: Say I'm Yours by Corinne Michaels

SIY Available Now

SayYours Amazon

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.

5/5 Stars
Say I'm Yours by Corinne Michaels was beautifully epic and sinful.  This was my first book I have read of hers, and it definitely won't be the last.  After reading about Trent, I really need to read the books about his two brothers!  Geesh! They stole my heart too! Say I'm Yours is a second chance romance, and it is a standalone.  I knew once I started reading this book that it would be an emotional one.  I felt so many feels with one. It pulled me in and never let me go.  I could not put this book down. 

Trent and Grace had been together for twenty years.  They knew everything about each other and had such a strong and magnetic connection.  Grace wanted more from their relationship, and Trent wanted everything to stay as is.  How did the two move past this?  Did they even move past this?

After twenty years, Grace finally had enough. Trent has always had her heart, but she wanted the happily ever after.  A family.  Marriage and children.  Realizing Trent was never going to move past his commitment issues, Grace decides to leave him and move on with her life.  Only this time, Trent comes back with a vengeance.  To prove once and for all, that Grace is it for him.  Grace has heard this so many times, that she just didn't believe him.  She fights the connection that they have for each other and stands her ground this time.  I fell in love with Grace.  She gave her heart to one guy a very long time ago and never got it back. 

Trent loves Grace so much, but has never told her.  He doesn't want to move forward with what they have.  Twenty years together, and they don't even live together.  What happened to this man that keeps him from moving forward with the woman that he loves deep down?  I loved Trent so much!!  He is the older Hennington brother, and he completely stole my heart.  I loved how he did anything and everything he could to fight for Grace.  I also loved how emotional and deep Trent was as well. He wore his heart on his shoulder!

Cooper was an honest and great guy.  He always had an eye for Grace so he took his chance when the opportunity came.  He became very bold and also put up a fight.  I really liked Cooper, and with everything that happened and the secrets that came out, I am hoping that Cooper gets his own story.  He deserves it!

I loved how everyone is this book is connected in some way.  They live in a small place so everyone knows everything.  I loved the friendships they all had, and I loved the whole Hennington family.  Trent's brothers Wyatt and Zach along with their families are in here as well.  I haven't read the books for these brothers, but I fell in love with them too so I will definitely be reading their books now.  I want to see what happened with Wyatt and Zach!

Say I'm Yours consumed me body and soul.  I still can't get this story and these characters out of my mind.  This story made me fall in love, then completely broke me and put me back together again.  That ending tore me to pieces.  Destroyed me.  Secrets were revealed that shocked me.

Say I'm Yours was an enthralling and emotional read from the very beginning to the very end.  Have your tissues ready for this one!  Corinne did a fantastic job of weaving together a beautiful, heartfelt story that completely slayed me.  It took me on an unforgettable journey and made me fall in love all over again.  This book was completely epic!!  Full of angst.  I can't wait to read this one again!!  It is a definite MUST read!!!

Review: Nailed It by Amy Miles

Title: Nailed It
Author: Amy Miles
Publication: March 26th, 2017
Rating: 4/5 Stars


 Today’s writers deal with pressures from all sides: to publish quickly, to stay seen in an over flooded market, to keep their readers happy and to find a way to earn enough money to keep following their dreams.

Writing is not easy. It can be lonely, disheartening and it is easy to feel buried by the very thing you were once passionate about. NAILED IT is 150 inspirations, mantras, mottos or quirky sayings that I have used in my personal bouts with burnout. I hope that they will encourage you, inspire you and remind you that although writing is many times a solo endeavor, writers all around the world understand the pressure you feel to succeed.

You are not alone.

“If at first you don’t succeed, change your view on what defines success.” ~ Amy Miles


 I loved this book of inspirational quotes so much!!  They were inspirational, but also cute, funny and quirky.  Amy Miles did a fantastic job creating a way to motivate authors and inspire authors to always push through, and no matter what, to finish the book that is being written.  I am not a writer, but hoping to one day be.  I know I am one of those aspiring writers who will critique and edit my work as I write.  From this, I learned to just get it on paper first.  Write the story, and edit after.  Writing isn't an easy career.  Writers get critiqued and reviews are left for their hard work.  Yes, not everyone will like the same story.  But, getting those tough reviews are scary.  This book of motivational quotes lets authors know that all authors go through this.  That no matter what push forward and tell the story your heart wants to tell.  That you are writing for yourself and no one else. 

Every author needs a little encouragement.  These quotes are so powerful and meaningful that they can be used anytime throughout the writing process.   I loved how Amy made this so colorful and creative.  They were so pretty to look at.  Instantly made me happy!  I love that this is in book form, but I would really love to have these as individual cards if that makes sense.  So I can pull out the one that I need for that particular moment.  I think Amy should look into this as well!!  She definitely Nailed It with these!!!

Surprise Reveal: All Closed Off by Cora Carmack


From New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack, comes the highly anticipated fourth standalone title in her Rusk University Series, ALL CLOSED OFF! A passionate story and journey, get ready to be mesmerized with Stella’s story! ALL CLOSED OFF is coming your way May 1, 2017!

ABOUT ALL CLOSED OFF (Releasing May 1, 2017):

Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.
But none of that matters because she’s just fine.
For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.
When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.

Masters Redemption - About Book 

Her Master's Redemption cover 

 I was a Master. 

 To understand me, you must understand my past.

My father was a Master. My mother his Courtesan. 

 I was raised in a business that trained women to become whores for the men that owned them. I was taught to train with a strict hand...but to seduce with a kind heart. 

 Although my mother was one of those golden whores, the women broken and rebuilt to become everything their owner could desire, my mother - in her wisdom and beauty - trapped the heart of her Master.

Through her perseverance, she never let the man go. 

 Naturally, I followed in his footsteps, not once finding love, but almost gaining a son. 

 My heart was destroyed on a clear summer day when my child was stripped from my hands. Redemption for my crimes was lost, and loneliness like a man should never know was gained.

Until I found Seraphina...

She thought she could deny me. She thought she could choose her fate or determine the course her life would run. She thought she would never love another because she couldn't love herself.

With a shattered heart and rebellious mind, she believed her life was broken. She chose death as an avenue to escape the life she was given, and she believed there was nobody who could stand in her way. 

 As her Master, it was my duty to show her... 

 ...that all her beliefs were wrong
