REVIEW: Give Me Love by Corinne Michaels


* * * * * * * * * *


New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels brings another second chance standalone in the town of Rose Canyon.

My biggest mistake was falling in love with my fake husband.

It was supposed to be a marriage of convenience between two best friends in the military. Our plan was to collect extra money and stay stationed together.

But what failed? Me. I did. Because suddenly I wanted a man who was never meant to be my real husband.

In an attempt to remedy my mistake, I severed all ties and put my life as a combat medic and Emmett Maxwell behind me. I’ve lost too many people to open myself up to love.

Now I’m working as a private investigator, and fate has stepped in, forcing our paths to intersect again when I’m looking into the disappearance of a missing girl with ties to Emmett’s hometown. A case I fear puts his life in danger.

He gives me one week to prove my suspicions and then I need to sign the divorce papers and leave. The problem with that? The moment I see Emmett again, I realize how foolish it was to leave him, to think I could ever stop loving him. All I want is a second chance.

When the case threatens not only my life but also his, I’m faced with my worst fear. How many times can a heart break before it shatters beyond repair?

Corinne Michaels’ Rose Canyon series is full of suspenseful, heart-string pulling stories. Give Me Love is the second book in the series, and it’s classic Corinne Michaels romance – a larger than life love story that she uses to emotionally shred her readers. Addictively full of feels, this small-town fake marriage, second-chance romance made my heart ache and race in all the best ways.

I’ve been waiting for Blakely and Emmett’s story since I finished Help Me Remember. There was a particularly memorable scene in that book that gave readers a sneak peek of this couple. I’ve been eager to dive into their story, but I don’t want to give too much away here. I think it’s best for readers to learn their history and experience their reconnection as it unfolds organically. Emmett, the town sheriff, is loyal, has a heart of gold and is adored by the whole community. Blakely was a strong, independent heroine, but she also had some baggage that she used her sass to hide. The chemistry between this couple was electric and obvious to everyone, but this was no simple second-chance romance. Emmett and Blakely had a lot to navigate to get to their happily ever after, though. Tumultuous emotions, palpable passion and an engrossing, suspenseful plot made this an unputdownable story.

Give Me Love was poignant and angsty, full of ups and downs and steamy romance. The twists and turns kept me glued to my kindle, and I devoured it in a day. I loved everything about Emmett and Blakely’s heartbreaking, heart-racing second-chance romance, and I can’t wait for the next book in the series! Five smooches from me for Give Me Love by Corinne Michaels!
