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.
“We’ve done this dance a hundreds times. I know the steps–two steps forward, ten steps back. We circle the floor and can never quite find our rhythm.”
TRENT!!! First I fell in love with Zach, immediately followed by Wyatt… and I just knew I’d fall for Trent too. And let me tell you, I certainly did!! He isn’t even my typical type of book boyfriend… but I can’t help but want him to succeed!
You see, Trent’s got a few issues of his own… one very important one being that he simply can NOT settle down with Grace. They’ve been in love for so many years, happily together, yet he just can’t agree to taking any of the necessary next steps. Grace is in her thirties and wants her relationship to move forward (i.e. marriage, children, etc.) and no matter how long she waits, Trent never seems to get his butt in gear. Grace finally gives up and walks out… will the thought of losing her forever actually change the way Trent looks at their relationship? Will he ever commit… and before it’s too late?
“I owe it to myself not to fall backward. It’s time to move forward. And Trent Hennington is now in my rearview mirror–where he belongs.”
I immediately loved Grace. As with all of Corinne’s characters, Grace had a heart of gold and a wonderful personality to match it. She always tried to do the right thing, regardless of how wrong it turned out to be. She never took advantage of people (*cough* Cooper *cough*) and was always straightforward and honest. Grace is someone I would be friends with in real life, so you can bet I was on her side from the very beginning.
Now for the chemistry. Again, it was OFF THE CHARTS! Corinne Michaels KNOWS how to write romance! Her sexy scenes are just the right amount of sexy, and I truly adore them, yet they aren’t so excessive that they take away from the story in any way. There was passion, heat, and all kinds of affection between these two. I loved it!
I simply cannot get enough of these books!!! The ups and downs, the way Corinne tortures my emotions, and the way I’m always drawn into the story, eyes glued to the book. I’m truly hoping there are more books like this in Corinne’s writing future… like Cooper’s story. Please. PLEASE! That being said, whatever Corinne has up her sleeve, I’m 100% game! Corinne has moved her way up to the top five of my favorites list! ♥
