My rating: 6 of 5 stars
Sometimes you read a book that is so beautiful that you’re left in a haze, floating in the air where life is more precious from above. I finished Say I’m Yours by Corinne Michaels days ago but it feels as if I’m still stuck in this story. Say I’m Yours rendered me in a dreamy daze—a story stupor—where I’m in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, drifting, going through the motions while my emotions are still entangled around these beautiful words. Passionately poignant and breathtakingly beautiful, Say I’m Yours hits the heart hard and slays the soul. Oh was my SOUL SLAYED!!!
Have you ever read a story that stole your soul and broke your heart on the very first page?
One page and…
Say I’m Yours hijacked my heart…breaking it…BREAKING ME.
One page and…
Say I’m Yours consumed me, claiming every part of me, commanding every feel.
One page and…
I was ALL IN…body…heart…soul…everything.
One page and…
I sank so fast where I was drowning in these words that crashed into me like big waves.
One page and…
I was screaming, “MINE!”
I knew the oldest Hennington brother’s story would break me and that it did. Trent was the Hennington that hijacked my heart the most, the one who may never leave me. Gracie has given 20 years of her life—along with her whole heart—to a man who won’t give all of his heart to her. Trent has always considered Gracie the only woman for him, but has let his fears come first, treating Gracie more like silver when she is nothing but pure gold.
“If you ever loved me, even a little bit, you’ll let me go.”
Beautiful Gracie with her dark hair, blue eyes, and huge heart loves her childhood sweetheart, Trent Hennington, but she is done waiting for him to make her wholeheartedly his. I loved this gal, so sweet and strong!
“You forgot the part about where I want to be someone’s world.”
“You forgot the part where you already are.”
I held on, trying to stay strong, but tears trickled down my face, raindrops of sorrow and salvation.
Say I’m Yours has ALL of the ANGST!!! The PASSION POUNDED into me! My soul spun and my heart melted, a mix of sorrow and swoon, where I FELT ALL THE FEELS. These words shot sparks to my soul. These words made my heart beat out of its chest. These words WERE EVERYTHING!!! Say I’m Yours WAS EVERYTHING…MY EVERYTHING!
Oh Trent! Gorgeous blond-haired, blue-eyed, tall, muscular, and all-alpha Trent, I knew this man would be the most complex and broken brother, the one with a huge heart hidden under years of fears and layers of pain. I LOVED this sweet but stubborn man!
The passion penetrated between Gracie and Trent, as their love was raw. I FELT THEIR IMPENETRABLE CONNECTION, so caring and combustible. I LOVED Trent and Gracie together, and LOVED their story soooo hard! This couple felt REAL with their situation and happenings RELATABLE, as if their story could really happen, and that made Say I’m Yours even more special. This childhood love, the kind from soulmates, the one you root for to last forever had me rooting for this couple to last a lifetime. If only Trent would see the light through the dark, the light that is Gracie, his shining star who has guided him for a lifetime.
“It’s only ever been you.”
Trent TOOK MY TEARS!!! I felt his heartbreak, emphasized with his struggles, and knew this man was everything GREAT!!! I SWOONED HARD as these soul-wielding words clamped down on my heart, squeezing so many emotions out as I fell even more deeply in love with this story and this beautiful couple. Emotional ecstasy. Say I’m Yours was EMOTIONAL ECSTASY!!! I breathed every bit of Say I’m Yours in, some breaths bated, wanting it to last forever.
I gave my heart to Say I’m Yours, my whole heart, where it still remains long after I turned the last page. I gave my soul to this story—as if I had a choice—for it to be sucked in like a song, dragging me in, pulling me under, like a big wave. This soul-searing story struck me like a storm, fast and furiously, where I could only succumb to the words that were my world. Words…mere WORDS…rendered me so full of FEELS where I still felt and am feeling everything long after the story has stopped.
Say I’m Yours SLAYED MY SOUL. Say I’m Yours HIJACKED MY HEART. Say I’m Yours had my heart in its hands, shaking it, willing it to shatter, and shatter it did in spades. Say I’m Yours BROKE ME. Say I’m Yours BLEW ME AWAY!!! Say I’m Yours became MINE.
Say I’m Yours is not simply a broken and beautiful romance; it’s a story about LIFE AND LIVING. It’s about taking that LEAP OF FAITH…LIVING FOR THE MOMENT…LIVING LIFE NOW. EVERY WORD MATTERS that Corinne Michaels pens to life, so beautiful and brilliant. This author writes with all of her heart and steals readers’ hearts along the way. Say I’m Yours stole every piece of me in a story that is a top 2017 read and story I’ll fondly remember for life. Penned like paint to a canvas, so vivid and valuable, Say I’m Yours is one of those books that THAT SLAY YOUR SOUL AND OWN YOU FOR LIFE.
This love story is MAGNETIC, so MAGICAL that you can’t help but MELT, falling in love with every word in Say I’m Yours. My heart is still reeling and racing. These characters won’t stop dancing in my head. This tale took my tears, still imprinted in my eyes. This story stamped itself all over my soul, slaying every ounce. Say I’m Yours took everything out of me because this heartfelt story was MY EVERYTHING! My soul is still soaring high, as Say I’m Yours made itself MINE, claiming me from the first page in a heartfelt romance that will OWN ME for life. ❤️

STALK ME ON GOODREADS —> View all my reviews
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.
