My rating: 5 of 5 stars
True love is always worth fighting for.
The best books are like love. Stories cast a seductive spell on us, stealing our heart and soul, as we float around on Cloud Nine. Say You Want Me did not even have to hijack my heart and soul; I willingly surrendered them to this spellbinding story where my head is stuck in the clouds in the best book haze as I’m still swooning long after the last page. I gave my heart to Say You Want Me where it still remains, likely bound to this story forever. I gave my soul to this story—as if I had a choice—for it to be sucked in like a breath of fresh country air, pulling me under, where I could not help but FALL FAST IN LOVE. Say You Want Me is Corinne Michaels’ latest roller coaster of a romance, one where I felt every twist and turn of my heart as it traveled on a riveting ride of swoon and sorrow.
This book began with a bang where my feelings were free-falling fast and hard. I WAS ALL IN! Say You Want Me swiftly stomped on my heart with the force of a stampede of horses where I could not help but devour the pages with a voracious hunger, drowning in them like my last breath. This book is beauty in words that bled tears…WORDS…that rendered me so full of FEELS where I felt every word penetrate me with passion. Every word was pure wonder. Every word meant the world. Every word quickly became my world. EVERY WORD WAS EVERYTHING.
Say You Want Me is a good old-fashioned heartfelt romance with a modern twist. This story sparked to life as magic poured from the pages, casting Say You Want Me in a glow as powerful as the sunset. I was elated to return to the country town of Bell Buckle Tennessee, portrayed so vividly where I felt like I was there with this family of characters who quickly captivated and claimed me as they came to life, becoming my world yet again. I suspected from the last book that Wyatt Hennington was the brother who would forever hold my heart the hardest and oh did he make me fall hard for him.
The beautiful, blonde, and deep blue-eyed Angie Benson, Presley ‘soon to be’ Hennington’s best friend, had one hot night with Wyatt Hennington while visiting Presley in Bell Buckle, Tennessee from Philadelphia. When Angie woke up, Wyatt was gone that morning, and Angie never heard from the hot heartbreaker again.
“He played me as if I were his personal instrument. Every touch, every kiss, every swipe of his glorious tongue was done just to please me. I don’t know how I managed to walk out of there. He rocked my world and then was gone before I woke up.”
Wyatt haunts Angie’s head; she can’t get him off her mind. She wants him…she loathes him. It’s one conundrum. When she finds herself back in Bell Buckle again, she will have the face the man who’s haunted her dreams and makes her body tingle at a mere thought.
“I turn and come face-to-face with the flashing smile, honey-colored eyes, and brown hair I’ve dreamed of. Wyatt Hennington stands before me in a pair of fitted jeans and a black shirt, and he’s looking at me with heat in his gaze. Everything inside me clenches.”
Dark-haired, honey-eyed, and inked Wyatt, the biggest and most muscular of the three Hennington brothers, is a lethal mix of all alpha male and gentle giant. Smart, sexy, and funny, Wyatt is the whole package.
“..I didn’t want you to leave, Angie Benson…I liked having you next to me…the next time you’re in my bed with your blonde hair on my pillow, you should stay there…I wanted you to stay.”
This country boy made me swoon, his sexy, seductive, and soul-filled words sent me on a ship to Swoon Land where I sunk under his spell. This man is pure perfection. I was OWNED by Wyatt. I was owned by Say You Want Me.
“The sex was explosive, but more than that…I was drawn to her like I haven’t been with anyone else. She lit me up and then left me burning.”
That night was a giant misunderstanding; wasted time. Now they have time to figure out if that night could turn into something more. Do Wyatt and Angie have more sizzle than just under the sheets?
“I lose track of time as he kisses me as if I’m his reason for living.”
Those kisses melt from the pages, penetrating that passion right to me as I felt it too. Those lifetime kisses that you know will lock you to love for life.
“What if you realize that I’m the best man on the planet and you can’t live without me? Give this a chance.”
Wyatt hasn’t been with a woman since Angie blasted her way into his life in one explosive night, lighting fireworks to his body and heart.
“I already know that the sexual chemistry between us if off the charts. Now, we need to see if the rest of what we’re going for has a chance.”
Angie has seen love die all around her; her heart is guarded with a fortress of steel, walls that have never been broken. Though one determined cowboy is prepared to fight, to claim his city girl who already has his heart.
“He’s the kind of guy I want to want me. He’s strong, sexy, caring, and so much more…Wyatt makes me feel alive. He’s excavated the parts of me I’ve buried under sarcasm and attitude, the girl who wants a man to love her. But fairytales don’t come true. People die. And I’m destined to be forgotten.”
Love is a battlefield and sometimes you have to fight for what you believe in, fight for the other person, fight for love. Wyatt is going to have to work hard if he wants to make this city gal his lady. The entire town of Bell Buckle is rooting for romance between two stubborn and passionate people: Big City and her Rhinestone Cowboy. Wyatt is going to have to bring out the big guns to claim Angie as his queen before the clock strikes midnight and this City Cinderella flees home to Philadelphia.
“Make no mistake—you’ll want me. I’m making damn sure of it.”
Intoxicating and incredible, I could not help but become besotted with this book that entangled my emotions around every character, every place, every page, every word, and every feel as each explosive emotion made me fall harder and harder for Say You Want Me.

★★★★★ 5 ‘but worth 10’ breathtakingly beautiful stars
There’s no way I’ll fall for Wyatt Hennington.
He can keep his Southern drawl, irresistible smile, and those pick-up lines all to himself. I made the mistake of sleeping with him not once, but twice. I’m not stupid enough to give him round three, especially after he left me in the middle of the night so I could see myself out. I vow to return to Philadelphia and forget him.
It proves easier said than done.
When the doctor informs me I’m the winner of door prize number two, I put my life on hold and head back to Bell Buckle. Three months and if we can’t make this work, I’m gone.
The problem is—when the cards are stacked against us, and I can’t bring myself to leave him, I’ll finally know if he truly loves me or if all my fears were real . . .
