Come Back For Me by Corinne Michaels Review


* * * * * * * * * *


From New York Times Bestselling Author Corinne Michaels comes a new emotional and riveting love story in the first standalone novel in the Arrowood Brothers series.

One night, eight years ago, she gave me peace.

No names.

No promises.

Just two broken people, desperate to quiet their pain and grief.

In the morning, she was gone and had taken my solace with her. I left for the military that day, vowing never to return to Pennsylvania.

When my father dies, I’m forced to go home to bury him. At least I’ll finally be rid of his farm, which is grown over and tangled with memories I’ve fought to forget.

And that’s when I find her. She’s even more beautiful than I remember and has the most adorable kid I’ve ever seen.

Years have passed, but my feelings are the same, and this time I refuse to let her go. They say you can’t bury the past, and they’re right. Because when long-ago secrets are exposed, rocking us both to the core, I have no choice but to watch her walk away again…

A new book from Corinne Michaels is an exciting thing, but when that book is kicking off a new series, that’s something else altogether. Michaels introduces a new world to her readers in the Arrrowood brothers, and I’m just going to get this out there now…. the rest of the books in this series have already landed on my most anticipated books list, and the titles, blurbs and release dates haven’t even been announced yet. That’s how much I loved this first book, and how invested I already am in these characters.

Michaels created Connor and Ellie’s magic by weaving a fated feeling into their story. A chance meeting, a respite from their own pain in the arms of a stranger. A single, nameless night was all it was supposed to be, but fate had other plans, and it became so much more than that for both of them. Fate steps in again, eight years later, and reunites them, both a little more broken than when they last met. The healing is where the beauty in this story begins, and Michaels brought all the feels she could muster to Connor and Ellie’s story.

Come Back For Me was an absolutely gorgeous second-chance romance that pulled me in from the first page. This wasn’t an easy read – what Corinne Michaels book is? – and my heart broke often as this couple’s difficult story unfolded. But that’s the thing about Corinne’s books, as painful as they are, and boy does she like to pile on the angst and emotion, the flipside to all that pain is pleasure. The rekindling of Connor and Ellie’s love story was beautiful, powerful, and passionate, and it’s a story that will stay with me for a long time to come. Five smooches from me for Come Back For Me by Corinne Michaels!
