BriB683 - A trigger warning would have been nice
There is a suicide scene in the beginning. If you’re sensitive to death imagery, suicidal, or have lost a father (like me), a sibling or a spouse, please proceed with caution. I had to stop reading. I probably won’t finish it. I left 3 stars to be fair.
1N37 - Say You’ll Stay
It would be a much better book if the foul language was removed. There is no need for that bad language to ruin a good story line.
coolio_Ally - I was hooked
I’ve never dived into a book so hard in a long time! But this right here was a golden trophy I couldn’t stop reading about. Even during this pandemic I have never felt so related to a character and I am so happy I found this author. It’s worth reading over and over again. Honestly amazing!.
Sai, - Full of emotions 👍📖📚👵🏻
I wrote already my review on goodreads and interesting story well written and full of hopes,humor and the powerful ❤️. Recommended.
Lacie Romano - A second chance romance that will reel you in!
This book was a fantastic second chance romance with all the angst, love, and quite a bit of good ol' southern sass.
I loved how this book gripped me from the beginning, it just BAM! in your face and it grabbed my heart and broke it.
Heartache, between past and present, secrets, and a lot of small town meddling, this book will break you and put you back together.
🌺Meg8🌺 - One of the best love stories!!!
This book kept my attention the entire time. Presley and Zach’s relationship was so well put together. It wasn’t just all good and happy things, there were some real problems that they had to overcome, but they did it with each other’s support. 10/10 would recommend this book!!!
yellville - Say you’ll stay
It’s complicated. The characters who find themselves together again after a long hiatus have to deal with their histories and heartaches before resuming a passionate relationship
Leafsister - Nope...
I read the reviews before reading and one smart person said something about this book “not being good”. They were right.
I always finish a book but I didn’t this time. At first it’s amazing and then it nose dives SO hard. Not enjoyable.
sbsbrinson - Loved it!
Full of turbulence and love! Enjoy!
Pins4 - Say You’ll Stay
Wow! What a sad,happy book. But that’s like real life for some people. Loved the book and the characters in it. Sad to see it end. Happy it ended well. Thank you!
NewEarthorBust - Gripping story
A love story with a lot of depth.
ashnicole1205 - Say You’ll Stay
For sure one of the BEST books I have ever read! I definitely recommend this book!
DM0402 - It’s OK, I don’t understand all the 5 star raving reviews
So I began with another of this author’s series when Consolation was a free book on iBooks. I ended up reading the series and as there was nothing that looked good on the free reading list, I decided to purchase “Say You’ll Stay.”
It’s OK. It isn’t one I will read over and over again. I may end up deleting it to free up space on my ipad at some point.
There were one or two grammatical errors, but nothing crazy.
As for the story, I don’t like, nor understand, how people in their thirties are acting like high school kids. It’s been 17 years since they dated. She’s been married. He’s dated others. Yet when they first meet it is catty jabs, pent up anger, and teenage dramatics. Seriously? The wounds can’t still be fresh. At this point, it should all be water under the bridge. I could understand grudges or hesitancy, but this was something I half expected her to enter into her diary with a heart-shaped lock. Granted, it is 2018 and she’d be more likely to tweet about him or begin some woman scorned blog.
I was hoping for more mature conversations, maybe some bitterness, and them being adults around one another. The author did not agree and wrote it as if they had a nasty breakup after the prom and met up again weeks later to hash it out. They just came across as immature with teenage insecurities.
Do I like the other characters? Yes. Did it make me laugh once or twice? Yep. Is it one I’ll read again? No. I like Wyatt enough that I may read the second in this series at some point, but I’m not planning to at the moment.
Overall, I think there is also some maturity issues in the other series as well, however I loved the banter and characters themselves, which is why I finished it and hope that when Ashton’s story come out, it is worth the wait.
Briitanydawn25 - The best!!
I stumbled across this author months ago and I have read almost every book she’s written!
This story is intense, it’s passionate, maddening, emotional and leaves you wanting more!
You feel as if you are apart of this book and as you read each line you visualize it play by play!
Her books are a must read!
Mini Golf Lover Kayla - Must read!
Amazing. I enjoyed this book from page 1 to the last! I was shedding tears before I even had a chance to really know the characters, that’s how captivating this book was! It also had me looking like a fool grinning from ear to ear staring at my phone. I couldn’t put it down! It’s the kind of story that sticks with you even after it’s been a while since you finished the book. Love, love, loved it! Read it, you won’t regret it!
Coachwife27 - Another Fabulous Read
I felt so many emotions reading this story. I related to the main character, Presley and some of what she went through in this book because a similar thing happened in my own family. I cried ugly tears more than once. But through my tears I kept reading. I Could Not Put It Down. I have read all of Corinne’s books and love them all! Corinne’s writing draws you in, makes you feel everything and you fall in love with the world she has created. I loved Presley and Zack's story and all the ups and downs that go along with it. Corinne is one of my favorite authors and I'm so glad I found her work!
Noriinny - I don't understand the great reviews
This book was boring and predictable. I felt like I was reading a script of a PG rated lifetime tv special.
I found this book on a list of "ugly cry books" and it was the second one I tried. The first one I tried was GREAT!!!! Carnage, it's about a rock star and is based in the U.K. But it's truly a heart wrenching book that happily has a HEA.
brittlouann - Awesome!
This author is AMAZING! I judge a book based on my feeling when reading it. If they can make me feel what they are feeling, they are good. But Corinne Michaels, she's definitely doing something right! I love, love, loved it! Highly recommend!!
NanandShan - Love this story of true love!!!
Such a great read with characters that pull at the heart strings!!!
Boundless Book Reviews - beautiful, heartbreaking masterpiece
I was browsing around to find a new audiobook to listen to, while I commute. I stumbled upon this gem of a story. I’ve never read a Corinne Michaels book before. But OMG! why did I not know of this amazing storyteller?!
In the beginning of the story, I felt something was not right. Of course, it really wasn’t what I had expected but Michaels really wanted to tear at your heart a little in the first few pages.
I loved the feel of this book. The only way I can describe it is, it's like Sweet Home Alabama. The whole small town, unrequited love. Presley and Zachary’s story was never finished. They lost so many years without each other. But sometimes hurt and no closure can do that.
When Zachary and Presley finally get together, It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read/listened to. This is also one of the greatest love stories.
The narrators of this story were amazing. I loved Andi and Sawyer’s narration. Andi just really brought Presley to life. Every heartbreak, every secret, and every moment of love that filters from these characters. I felt all of them. I’m going to have to listen to more by her. They're a really great pair to listen to. And I’m a bit picky when listening to audiobooks.
Overall, I give this Five HUGE Boundless Stars. Say You’ll Stay, a beautiful, heartbreaking masterpiece.
Ashers4747 - Gripping
Gripping-jaw dropping-fist clenching right from the beginning!
I was hooked so hard from page one I couldn't stop reading till I read the last page.
Presley is one tough woman! A woman forced to find out how strong she really is from surcumstances not of her own making.
What she needed was an even stronger man.
Zach had a lot of growing up to do. But when you read about the man he becomes (fanning myself just thinking about him)
I was cheering on these characters page after page!
I really don't know how Corinne can take something so sad-so bad, and make it beautiful. That is the magic she can paint through her words on the page though. And this book proves it!
Hme128 - Love!
Have tissues ready! Loved Zach and Presley, and all the Hennington boys! Keeps you on the edge of your seat, can't put it down! Must read!
Bookbruin - First Love and Second Chances
I love a good second chance romance and Say You'll Stay did not disappoint! I was completely unprepared for the beginning and knew that I wouldn't be able to put this one down. I fell in love with the characters and with Bell Buckle, TN. This is book 1 in the author's Return to Me series of interconnected stand alones about the Hennington brothers.
Zach. I am still swooning for this cowboy. He is the perfect blend of cocky and vulnerable. It's clear that although 17 years have passed between him and Presley, their feelings and connection are just as strong (if not stronger) as when they were teenagers. Yes, he lost a few points in my book for not ending things with Felicia before things started to change between him and Presley, but I loved how devoted he was to trying again once Presley returned. He was patient, understanding, and sweet as he and Presley got to know each other again as adults. They have so much history and pain to wade through, especially Presley, and the flashbacks to the past were perfectly placed to shed light on how these two got to this point. I do wish that there had been more Zach chapters though, because I often wondered what was going on in his mind.
Presley. I both loved her and was annoyed by her. I understand that when things went south the first time, she was only 18, so she wasn't the most mature. Honestly, neither was Zach, but that's young love. It's all consuming and emotional. They were living off the dreams of first love and the reality didn't match up. I really liked that the story addressed that even if different choices had been made, the relationship still might not have survived. So much in life is about timing. I thought things moved a little quickly after all the tragedy Presley has faced, but at the same time not fast enough since Zach and Presley have known each other since they were kids and the spark never died. Another thing in the story that annoyed me was Felicia. I understand why there was the whole other woman plot line and that Zach would not have been unattached for 17 years, but the amount of hostility and anger towards Felicia seemed over the top. Yes, she's terrible and catty, but I was really curious as to why there was so much hate towards her. Everyone got their comeuppance though, so it all worked out ;)
I definitely enjoyed the secondary characters in this book like Cooper, Angie, Grace, and the up in your business all the time residents of Bell Buckle, but I especially loved Wyatt. He's the loyal brother and best friend who wants something more. His scenes were hilarious, heartfelt, and bittersweet. I was happy to see that book 2 in the series will be his story. I really enjoyed this second chance love story and can't wait to return to my favorite town in Tennessee.
Hmitch76 - Wyatt ❤️
Say you Want Me can be read as a stand alone but you meet the hero and heroine in the first book, Say You'll Stay. Wyatt Hennington is Zach's younger brother and Presley's best friend from childhood. Angie is Presleys ex sister-in-law and best friend. They have hooked up a few times over the last couple of years and have insane chemistry. In this book they give their relationship a chance. Wyatt is a really great guy. Hard working, sensitive, and sexy. Angie is a fiercely independent woman who really doesn't have anyone she can count on. I didn't fall in love with this book like I did the first one. Something was off. But it may have very well just been me. I didn't really buy into their relationship. But it was interesting to see Wyatt and Angie work through their problems and the writing is phenomenal. I love everything Corinne Michaels has written and can't wait to read the next one.
kikibi11 - Wyatt Hennington Has Broken The Man Mold!
I don't even know where to begin. Corinne's book always amaze me but this one just blew me away! After meeting Zach in Say You'll Stay, I didn't think the Hennington Brothers could be any more dreamy than him, but HELLO WYATT! He is a true southern gentleman who's Mama raised him right. All the brothers are drop dead gorgeous, but he as the heart to match. In comes Angie, who we also met in Say You'll Stay. Now Angie is complex with a history of not opening her heart. I loved her from the minute of meeting her in the first book. She's tender but tough as nails and the most loyal friend to Presley ever! Of course when Wyatt and Angie first meet years ago, the sexual sparks fly! When Angie visits Presley and Zach in Bell Buckle, where I want to move!, sparks fly again an badda bing, badda boo, they hook up! Now from there is where the true story starts!
This book was a true emotional journey. It had me laughing, sighing and then crying hard for our hero and heroine. What they go through in this book is my worst nightmare and really hit home. The way Corinne writes, you feel like you are really there, going through it with her characters. The second half of the book was so emotional that I wanted to stop reading but I couldn't because I just had to find out what happens. It was truly an amazing story and one I will revisit many times to come. If you do not fall in love with Wyatt and Angie, then you have a heart of stone!
I can't wait to read Trent and Cooper Townsend's stories from this amazing author!
AmyBustard - Amazing
Beyond 5 Stars
This was my first time ever reading one of Corinne's books and it definitely will not be the last! This story gripped me up right from the beginning.. Grab a box of tissues because you will need them!
This story started with a heart breaking tragedy that no family should ever have to experience, however with life.. Tragedy occurs and families are left in turmoil with unanswered questions, unbearable grief and broken hearts.
What I loved most about this story was the characters were older and the story was so realistic that you feel all the emotions, anger and angst throughout the entire story.
You heart will scream while you mind is stirring!
Presley Benson has had more than her share of heartbreak, first by the boy she left her hometown to follow him off to college and than by her husband of 13 years.
With her world turned upside down 11 years old twins sons, Cayden & Logan- Presley has to move to the one place the she swore she'd never return to after being gone for over 18 years, not wanting any reminders of the 1st boy who broke her heart.
Belford County, Tennessee-Townsend Cattle Ranch. Her parents home and the place that held more memories that led to heartbreak.
Zachary Hennington was the lover of her life, her high school sweetheart and the man she was supposed to marry and have children with. He broke her heart the moment she arrived to college. She hasn't seen him since, avoiding her hometown and family until now.
This story will keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved all the characters & side characters. It was so well written you won't want the story to end..
Well deserved 5 Stars..
Millionreads - Emotional roller coaster
This was my first book by this author and it will not be my last. This was an emotional roller coaster. This was a well written, emotional and satisfying story. I really liked all the characters and I can't wait to read more.
janice1231 - Presley and Zach
A Review of Say You'll Stay by Corinne Michaels
Presley and Zach - 5+++++ stars
I did this kinda backwards - I actually read the second book in the series first and knowing the characters crossed over, I was so hooked that I had to go back and get this book to read their story as well. Presley left Bell Buckle, Tennessee to follow her man to college up north. Since Zach was two years ahead of her in school, they had to deal with a two year long distance relationship until she could follow after him. Getting engaged at such a young age didn't seem out of the norm for them—they were meant to be. When Zach signs a baseball contract two months into her first year there, she lets him go, refusing to deal with another couple of years of long distance and he left her there. The only person she had was the friend she had made in Angie.
Cut away to almost seventeen years later and for reasons beyond her control, she has lost everything but her twins and has to move back to the family farm until she can get back on her feet. She had no idea that Zach was back in Bell Buckle and it seems that everything and everyone is pushing them back together. But, can love from a very young age truly be soul mates? Will they be able to withstand all the secrets and hurts that they have endured? Ms. Michaels definitely knows how to tear your heart out and yet put it back together with 'a little duct tape and spit' as the old saying goes. Sometimes fate steps in and nudges two very broken hearts into one new one that will stand the test of time.
DC Reads - 5 stars
Amazing read!! I couldn't put it down, I'm kicking myself for putting it off for so long. Such a good book!
Angelfoll - Captivating and beautifully written
Another gut wrenching emotional read by Corinne.
There isn't a book she has written that hasn't touch me deep in my soul.
Her stories are beautiful.
This particular book gutted me from the beginning.
I knew I was going to love it after crying on chapter 2.
The story of Presley and Zach
Is a complicated yet beautiful one. It's a once of a lifetime,
And a journey you won't soon forget.
It's a second chance love story that will bring you an emotional ride. It will pull at your heart and help you find a way to forgiveness.
I love the characters in this book. A fantastic read.
Punkybusiness - Best Book I Have Read
This book has it all! I am an avid book reader and believe me when I say it is a JEM!!! I have started it a second time around I loved it so much!
It made me laugh, cry, and smile. It's really rare for a book to touch me so deeply. Days after I finished this book, I was still thinking about it, and would love to get my hands on any other books that this author writes in the future (as I have already read all that she has written so far).
K8e_jo - Say you will stay
Beautiful book.. Couldn't put it down
Corvettey - Great read!
Couldn't put this book down ! Think I found my new fiction boyfriend! :)
Bbailey71678 - Home Run Read
One of the best books I've read this summer! Love this book! This is a must read!!!
Syr-girl - Another beautiful story's!
Ms. Michaels has done it again! All her books are just wonderful. Read them all! Can't wait for the others!
Pfisher408 - A cowboy takes my heart every time
Corinne Michaels writes great stories she gives sexy men and strong smart women. Fell for this whole cast of characters so looking for more books coming. Take a chance and read this sweet story with tissue in your hand...
Amolgie - Amazing
Another amazing book by Corinne Michaels! Super sweet second chance book that had me hooked from the beginning and hating that the book was over. Cannot wait for the second book in the series!
minow423 - Love a Cowboy!
Let me preface this by saying I had absolutely no doubts in my mind. When one of your favorite authors comes out with a new book, I think we all wonder will it live up to the characters that we loved so much in the previous series. Corinne Michaels has definitely hit it out of the ballpark with Say You'll Stay! There is just something different about reading a book by Corinne...it's hard to describe but the way you are drawn in from the first page to experiencing every feel imaginable!! Presley and her boys! My heart broke for them especially the boys. I immediately fell in love with the Hennington brothers! Zach is dreamy with a temper...which makes him hotter! Wyatt is a hoot and cannot wait for his book! I love books about second chances and this one was perfect! I've said it before and I'll say it again, Corinne writing is nothing but stellar!
Chubbypants - Sweet story
I enjoyed these characters- especially the 'supporting' cast. This story had a lot of depth and yet it was somewhat predictable. That said, it kept my attention- I read it in one day. The premise is heartbreaking and endearing. There were moments that I was frustrated with the main characters because of the communication, which like it or not I blame on the author. If you want a sweet HEA this is a good one.
LSchohr - Say You'll Stay
Corinne Michaels once again you don't disappoint!! This book was beyond awesome!! I am so looking forward to the rest of the series. Your men never disappoint! Please, Please, Please.....keep doing what you do. You have such a way with words!! ❤️❤️❤️
Hollywood732 - A Gripping and Breathtaking Second-Chance Romance!
Say You'll Stay made me gnaw my cuticles going into it because I know to expect my heart to be pulled apart but, as always, Corinne mended it, tapped my tush and sent me back on my reading way much like a mom kissing a scraped knee and sending her kid back out to play. Say You’ll Stay will make you cry, laugh, fan yourself, and stand up and beg her for more!
Corinne’s military men will always have a special place in my heart, BUT her Hennington cowboys are taking over <3
TheRanchDiva - Knocked it out of the ballpark
Loved, loved, loved this story! It starts on a hard note but every emotion was spot on.
Corrine's best book yet !!
Can't wait to see what else happens in Bell Buckle.
Ddgoldbergs - Vulnerable love
Outstanding! OMG such a beautiful book that will have you laughing, crying and making predictions by the end of chapter one. Say You'll Stay has left me in awe of Corinne Michaels's writing.
Can Presley handle the truth? Can she clean up her present, revisit her past and still be given a future to fight for? Will Presley be given her second chance at happiness?
Zach. Charming, handsome and in love are traits that every woman wants in a man. Is Zach enough for Presley? Will Zach be the man that brings her back to Tennessee? Can he forgive the past and move forward? Will this woman be a part of it?
No words can describe the emotions I had while reading this book. It was that good!
KGreader - Absolutely Amazing😍
What a story!!! This book made me laugh and cry all at the same time. It is a great story just like all her other books and I can't wait to read the rest.
Nurse Andee - Get you some HENNINGTON !!!!!
Omg! This story is so amazing. It's all about second chances and lord knows Presley Mae and Zachary Wilbur need one. This is a heart aching love story that will make you leap for joy after you get over the heart ripping out from her first husband. This was totally worth the price of admission and I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for Wyatt and Angie's story ❤️
Virna Thompson - An emotional, heartbreaking, must read novel by Corinne Michaels!
So one day I hear Corinne Michaels is releasing a new standalone book soon. I love her books and her characters and am beyond excited to get my hands on this book. We get the blurb next and again, I am all in and ready to dive right in. When I do, I find my heart may just not be able to take it. The emotional rollercoaster is non-stop, even as the need to continue and not stop until every word is devoured was driving me. This is the kind of emotion Corinne’s writing evoked in this book. This is her best work to-date and a must read.
This is a second chance love story, but it is also so much more. I do not even know where to begin. It was emotional, it was heartbreaking, it was everything. I cannot stress how much you need to read this now.
Presley and Zach will steal your hearts, even as they break it and try your patience to the very last. Even as I wanted to curse and throw my eReader across the room I loved them.
Booksandbandanas - Corinne has outdone herself...AGAIN!
There are certain authors out there that make me feel like they are writing straight to my soul. Corinne Michaels, is one of them. Her stories, her words, her heart, you feel it all when picking up a book of hers.
I sort of.
Have fallen for every word that Corinne has composed. I love Corinne's writing a little country, a little sass, and a whole lot of heart. Her books never disappoint and obviously that applied to SYS.
I love second chance love stories, like I always say they are true to my heart because they are relatable and real. This story will tear you apart at 2% but it will mend you, free you, and make you feel love. True heart stopping love. I loved the whole country feel this story has, makes me want to move to Tennessee and never return. Ladies, this is a must read and I'm not just saying that.
#SYS by Corinne Michaels is LIVE! 💛🐎
HollyMarie143x - Zachary Hennington will steal your heart and mind
This book is everything! Going in I knew my heart would be put through a test but never in my dreams did I expect to cry and feel so deeply from page one! This is Michaels best work to date and does not disappoint.
I went in not knowing to much about this book because it was kind of a surprise release, I can tell you this book exceeded all my expectations and then some! I connected with these characters as if they were my own family/friends.. The details and emotions are so spot on that you feel you are living right along in the book. I'm still completely blown away that a story.. A book.. Could touch my soul so deeply. This deserves so much more then 5 stars.
Wendy LeGrand - My favorite Corinne book!
Corinne has done it again, given the readers an incredible story that will evoke every emotion known to man before the last page is turned.
Right from the very beginning of the book, Corinne grabbed hold of my heart and squeezed. Reading the dedication had me tearing up and I hadn't even started reading the story yet. And then bam! Right out of the gate I was a mess of snot and tears, living through a horrific tragedy right alongside Presley that I wouldn't wish for anyone to have to experience, no matter how much I hated someone.
It may sound weird to say this considering the circumstances, but Corinne wrote the scenes that Presley lives through in a brutally beautiful way. I dare anyone to read the first few chapters without feeling like you are living right alongside Presley and her twin sons, feeling every single emotion they go through. Truly the whole book is emotional, full of angst, but also layering in some humor and funny moments, delivered by a great cast of secondary characters.
Presley returns home with her sons to stay with her parents until she gets back on her feet and ends up running into the one person she never thought and hoped she would never see again. The boy who was the absolute love of her life, the one she had planned to spend the rest of her life with. The one she gave up her own dreams for to follow him while her pursued his. The one who broke her heart when he left her behind.
Corrine kept me riveted to my Kindle while I anxiously read on to see if Presley and Zach would be able to find their way back to each other. The entire town thought they belonged together, had thought that all along. But it's been 17 long years, can Presley handle dealing with the feelings she's repressed for all these years while she's still grieving and delaing with the huge mess her husband left behind?
I have loved all of Corinne's books and this one really resonated with me for several reasons. First off, I grew up in a snall town like the one Presley did, where everyone in the town knew everyone else's business. Oh, those were fun times! (NOT) But she hit the nail on the head in her portrayal of what small town community is like. I also love the way she navigates the waters of a single mom who starts to date again. How to tread carefully because you have little people involved. Your kids trust you implicitly, you are their safety net so how do you introduce a new person into their lives? Someone who they may feel like they need to compete with for your affection?
I love second chance romance books and this one is right at the top of my favorites. I loved the progression of Presley and Zach's relationship. It wasn't just the two of them, there were two little boys involved who had to be factored into the equation. I loved the secondary characters in the book, particularly Wyatt. I can't wait until he gets his own book, his story will be highly entertaining, I'm sure!
Awesome job, Corinne! I loved it!
EHuffines - Second chance
This was a wonderful second chance story packed with emotion right from the beginning. I loved the family aspect in this entire book and I enjoyed the fact that things weren't rushed or forced. Once again, amazing writing Corinne!

This book was something else ... I loved it ... can’t say nothing because it would be spoilers ..
Oriondelta - Stay by Corinne Michaels
This is my first review and I have read hundreds of books online. This book is so worth the read, it pulls at your heart strings all the way through. You really feel for the characters. Couldn’t put it down until I finished it!
Sun sex - Zachary and Presley
Loved it what a beautiful story of broken love. Well done it's a ten plus read.
I can't get enough of Zachary and Presley have read this about half dozen times .
One of my fav's.
Jac50shades - An Absolute MUST READ by Corinne Michaels
I can't even begin to put into words all my emotions at this moment after reading THE END! This book is EVERYTHING an incredible romance should be..
This book grabbed me by the throat in the first chapter and by the end, I felt like I had been chewed up and spit out (but in the BEST way!) This emotion-packed roller coaster ride had me, at turns balling my eyes out, laughing like a crazy person, had my heart melting at times and breaking at others! Some of the things that Presley has had to endure tore my heart right out and made me want her HEA like no other heroine I have ever connected with before!
Zach is, I have to say, one of my all-time favorite BBFs (right up there with a certain DreamBoat!!!)...strong yet sensitive, gorgeous, sexy, loyal, confident and goes after what he wants!!
I LOVED everything about this book and I can't wait for Trent and Grace's story (and hopefully Wyat will get a love to call his own, as well!!) #HenningtonHunks
Alisonmaxwell1973 - Oh the feels!!!
With every book Corinne Michaels writes she perfects her craft. She writes books that evoke real and raw emotions from her readers. She takes us from the lowest low - death and betrayal that leave a family ruined and struggling to survive to the highest high - a love that was lost and rediscovered. This is by far one of my top reads of 2016.
Preferential - Say You’ll Stay
I don’t quite know what words to use here. I tried to get to the end of this book, I battled through to 82% . I closed the book, offended, disappointed and very annoyed I wasted so many hours trying to read this. This book raises some very sensitive life losses, and I understand the devastating grief, but that’s no excuse for the rambling prose, repeating and regurgitating the same words throughout the book. Then there’s the anger, acknowledged, then escalated and rambling escalation again. Finally, the author introduces another anger issue, giving the reader the most unhealthy aspect and losing any compassion for the characters in the book.
I understand grief, loss and betrayal, many people do, sadly, this book does not.
BecFranks - Main character was unlikeable!
Unfortunately I just couldn’t enjoy this book at the main character was just so unlikeable! She was so selfish, whinged all the time and I just couldn’t feel anything for her.
Debprice - Tears.. Sad Glad Happy Love
Boy how to describe a book that touches so deeply.
Exceptionally moving, I cried, laughed, felt.
Extremely well written. I love how the author brought so many emotions to the surface.
I would highly recommend this book. It was exceptional.
iluvroses11 - Wow
This book is so captivating. From the start, I was hooked! Though tragic, it has a beautiful storyline. I was on an emotional roller coaster from start to finish, which is something I cherish when I read books. I can’t wait to read the next one in the series. All of the characters are so beautifully portrayed and you can only wish that people like this existed in the real world. I wish I could get me a man like Zach lol. In all seriousness, I highly recommend this book. Absolutely beautiful.
EmmaA1988 - Say You'll Stay
Loved this book. Very sad and left me in tears as I got to know the characters and see the struggles they were going through. Well worth the time. I cannot wait to read the next one.

(Top Favourite for 2016)
Say you’ll stay fast became one of my favourite books for 2016. The tragedy, heartbreak, love and romance were on point! I know that sounds weird, but it was seamless. The flow to this book was perfect which made it a book that I just couldn’t put down.
Corinne managed to turn me into a blubbering mess in the first 3% and she didn’t let up until I was well and truly wrecked. I am no stranger to Corinne’s work, she is one of my faves, but, you know the saying “it gets better with age”, usually we refer to wine. Here, I will refer to the beauty of Corinne’s writing. Each book written, is always better than the last.
I don’t think I have ever read a book with a beginning as heartbreaking as this one. It was a definite way to draw me and sink in some teeth.
“Choices are something we take for granted until we no longer have any options, and then we want to go back in time.”
Presley’s entire world is flipped on its axis when a tragedy- that was out of her control- forced her to leave the city that she loved and move back to her childhood home with two young boys in tow. With moving back to her childhood home in Tennessee, brings back a lot of memories and a lot of mixed emotions. When she finds herself forced to face her first love, Zachary Hennington, no amount of trying to hold back can keep them apart.
Presley’s strength and determination to be the mother she needed to be to her two young sons was admirable and courageous. No matter what was thrown her way, she seemed to pick up the pieces and hold her boys together, all while falling apart inside.
Zach’s life didn’t quite pan out like he had imagined, so when Presley stumbled back into his life, there was no other option other than to grab that second chance. Zach is so swoon-worthy. The efforts he makes to try and win back his first love is beautiful and absolutely heartwarming.
“There’s not a soul who doesn’t have a skeleton of some sort, but the longer you keep it locked up, the longer it’s going to hold you down” -Wyatt Hennington
I loved the secondary characters in this book! Seriously. I have already claimed Wyatt. He was such a blessing to Presley’s boys and helped guide them through the hardest days of their lives. He succeeded in making them smile on a daily basis and see the beauty in such tragedy. I CAN NOT wait for his book.
Thank you, Corinne. Another wonderful book
Quinny19 - Awesome Read

Claypot2850 - Claypot2850
Yet another amazing read from Corinne Michaels. Make sure you have your tissues handy as there are some parts of this book that had me sobbing. This book is a true second chance romance in every sense of the word and the smoking hot cowboys in this one have become my new BBFs!I also adored the secondary characters in this one & can't wait for them to tell their stories. Don't want to say to much as I don't want to spoil it but highly recommend this book to anyone who loves some angst, true love and some laugh out loud moments thrown in.
AlDel, Melbourne, Aus - Wonderful Second Chance Romance
Emotional, angsty, romantic, loved this book!! Corinne writes with so much emotion and it makes you feel so much, you become invested with the characters and it's so believable and honest.
Mj_Keenan - Tearful beauty
Another one that pulls you in, plays with your heart and has the laughs and happy tears to make a 5 star read.
dprior100 - Say you’ll stay.
Absolutely loved this.
Great characters and storyline, well worth a read.
Didn’t know this author, but will definitely read her other stuff now.
barmy2 - Good book
I enjoyed reading this book.
Timbletamble - Loved this
Lisahers - Breathtakingly beautiful
Right off the bat you are hit with all these emotions and it was ones I was not expecting. The whole book is simply breathtaking and Corinne has done an amazing job,reading the blurb I wasn't expecting all the emotional angst and feelings to hit you like that.
Say You'll Stay is the second chance romance and these are one of my favourite genres and this one is just spectacular. It's so powerful it take's hold and grips onto you and never lets go, I went into this knowing it was going to amazing, but I had no idea just how much and that it wouldn't let go.
Presley and Zach,lets just say you live, breath and feel throughout the story with them,it's so poignant.
Bell Buckle Tennessee is where it's set, its a small town where everyone knows everyone's business. Presley has to move back here after her husband left her alone with their sons and no money. She's forced to move back to her parents ranch where she left,all the years ago,to pick up the pieces, everyone rally's round to offer their help and support.
However, the one person Presley didn't expect was Zach. Presley is one of the heroines you instantly cannot help but love along with Cayden and Logan. Zach,on the other hand,you want to blame him for them being apart, but you can't. Throughout you are given pieces of their past, Presley and Zach is that young love that's all consuming, burns you whole and never lets go - it's breaks your heart when it doesn't work out.
So when Zach and Presley met, for the first couple of times ,it plays with your emotions again as you feel all the hurt, heartbreak and pain, but you can't help but hope that first true love will conquer all and forgiveness will allow for second chances.
This book has all the angst and feelings you could ever wish for and love, it's truly become a firm favourite read, not just for the year either.
Tilly212 - A beautiful love story
Corinne Michaels really does know how to get hooked into a story right from the first chapter!
This story starts with a bang and not a good one at that! The first chapter really is heartbreaking, it's guts you almost immediately.
It's such an emotional story. A story of first love, broken hearts and second chances.
Presley is a really lovable character, she's dealt such a tragic blow I'm surprised she didn't just curl up in a ball permanently. She's such a strong women even in the times she feels weak and alone. Her love for her two boys keep her functioning and although she has to take a step back and go back to the one place she's been running from for so long it's ultimately the best thing for her and her family.
Zach if I'm honest I wasn't sure about at the beginning, took me a few chapters to warm up too him. He made a massive mistake in his youth that cost him his soul mate but I think if that hadn't happened these two maybe wouldn't of worked anyway. I hated Felicia, but to be fair she was there to be hated! I wish he'd resolved that situation a bit quicker but I suppose if he'd just dumped her I'd of disliked that too!
I absolutely adored Logan and Cayden. I though they were such amazing kids and and I liked that they were such a bit part of the story.
Presley and Zach really are so good together, Zach is such a massive support to her and his love and devotion really did shine through. He really did become such a rock for Presley, I don't think she would of made it through in one piece without him.
The secondary characters were really interesting. The Hennington boys are hot! I'm really looking forward to Wyatt's book, I'm really hoping it gonna be full of fun as he seems such a naughty character, I reckon he's gonna fall hard.
It's such a beautifully written story, I really am enjoying Corinne's books and she's up there with some of my favourite authors. It's a great start to this series.
KazGun - Great read
Another brilliant book. Would highly recommend. Can't wait for the next one to come out.
LoulouR5 - 5+ stars! Beautiful & breathtaking
To put it simply, this was one of the most beautiful second-chance romances I have ever had the pleasure and honour to read. This is one of those books that make you wish you could give 6 stars and has taken my top-spot of my favourite reads of 2016 so far.
I went in totally blind to this story, but having read ALL of Corinne’s other books I had high hopes. I love her as an author and her writing style is superb. But this book has taken her to the next level in my opinion. It is PHENOMENAL!! It is one of those books which has left an imprint on my heart and my soul and will stay with me, quite possibly, FOREVER!
I want to review this book fully, yet I really want to say the absolute minimum. I don’t think a full review could do this story justice anyway. Honestly, this book is best going in with no expectations and coming through the other end completely and utterly changed!
The story revolves around Presley Benson and Zachary Hennington. They both grew up in the country, in a little town called Bell Buckle, where everyone knows everyone. In their younger years they fell in love, but as much as they (and everyone else) thought were going to last forever; they didn’t. Their lives have taken very different routes and let them down different paths. But for one reason or another Presley comes back to Bell Buckle and their paths cross again. Presley doesn’t want to be back, she’s embarrassed, she’s scared and she’s struggling through reasons outside of her control. When she comes back she knows it’s only a matter of time before she see’s Zach again. She can only hide for so long, in such a small town, when everyone wants to get involved, and Zach’s brother working on Presley’s parents’ farm. And when they do see each other again, things get tricky. There has always been a huge amount of love between these 2 characters – and it wasn’t through lack of love that they weren’t together. But so many years have passed, they are such different people, they’ve both changed and moved on.“He breaks me apart. He puts me together. He’s my poison and my antidote.”Zachary Hennington has found his way into my heart, and there he will stay. All of the other characters are beautifully written and are brilliant additions to the story. Can Zach and Presley find their way through their struggles, secrets, demons, the betrayals, the lies, the pain and the regrets? In order to see what happens, I URGE you to READ. THIS. BOOK!!!
This story will take you on a journey. It broke me, I cried and I sobbed. I felt so many emotions reading this book, there is something in here that will hit you and grab you on every level. It yanked my heart out, broke it up, but then magically it stitched itself back together. I laughed, smiled, felt happy and sad, felt anger and confusion…! There are some brilliant twists and turns, with simply wonderful layers in the story to keep you hooked from the very first page to the very last. You will not be able to put this down!

Just 1 more page - 5 Amazing stars!!
Second chance romances are some of my faves and this is one the of the best ones I've ever read. Zachary and Presley's story is gripping and beautiful, I was hooked on this book from the very first page! The words written in this story are so raw, so real, and so full of emotion that you can't help but to fall in love with these characters. You'll laugh with them, cheer for them, and your heart will break with them. Corrine has said that this book has been the closest to her heart and I can tell, all the love she put into it pours off every page. The supporting characters are amazing, they bring life to this book and I can't wait to read some of their stories. Amazing job Corinne! I love my Salvation series boys, but this may be your best work yet!!
Amynoelle - Corinne at her best!
Corinne Michaels never, ever disappoints. Second chance romances are my favorite and this one delivers from the very first page. The prologue very nearly broke me as you see Presley, a happy mother of twins coming home on what seems like a very ordinary day. What follows when she returns home changes her life forever. This first chapter had me in tears (so make sure that you have a box handy while you read, btw).
Faced with no other choice, Presley returns home- a place she hadn't returned to in years after having her heart broken by her first love. As a native southerner, I will say that Corinne very accurately portrays life in a small, southern town. You will get Hart of Dixie vibes as you read this book and I adored that as I loved that show.
Presley and her twin sons try to adjust to their new normal while nursing a terrible heartbreak. Corinne has a way of writing that will pull emotions from you and you will find your heart breaking along with Presley and her boys.
And the men, of course the men! What can I say? If you loved the men of Corinne's Salvation series, you will not be disappointed in the Hennington brothers. Zach is just amazing and I cannot wait for Wyatt and Trent's books as well.
aschae - HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended!!
Corinne has once again ripped my heart out and then pieced it back together one little bit at a time... She broke me from the start with this story and there was no way I could not see where this story could go... What an incredibly sad, tragic, heart wrenching, BEAUTIFUL story about love, loss and betrayal. My emotions were all the place reading this and I hid at work reading it, hiding the tears in my eyes over and over again. One day read - could not put it down!? HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended!!!
T.Lyyyy - Second Chance Romance at it’s finest!
This is ANGST, ANGER, PASSION, MADNESS, & LOVE. This story painted a picture of first loves and loves somewhere in between. It is beautifully written and I found myself immersed in a world that wasn’t my own, but one I couldn’t put down. Presley is ne of my all time favorite heroines and it’s hard to make that list! But I loved how real she was in terms of her emotions, it made her easy to relate to. Zach OMG Zach that man will be the death of me! All the characters helped to create such a beautiful story together and I hope there is more to come!
lisarut07 - Feelings Galore 😍❤️😍❤️
I don't know about you, but when it comes to a Second Chance Romance, I get beyond super excited. The fact of the matter is, love comes and goes, but with the Second Chance Romance, we lose some and we WIN SOME. Or most importantly, we see two people overcome and grow.
If you have been a faithful follower of Author Corinne Michaels, you are familiar with her interconnecting series. Whereas each of those books are packed full of OMG and WOW moments, SYS, is pumped full of ALL THE FEELS and EVERY OTHER EMOTION YOU COULD IMAGINE. I wasn't sure if my heart could take everything that was thrown at it. There were times where I wishing for a Speed Bump or even a Caution While Reading sign, but mostly I was biting my nails wondering what would come next.
In true Michaels fashion, she gives us a beautiful heart stopping story of redemption and flawless love. The way she crafted this story was not only gut-wrenching but breathtaking as well. She gives us two characters who have a deeply passionate history. Presley and Zachary show us what the meaning of true unbridled love is. Of course, with Say You'll Stay not everything comes neatly packaged with a huge bow on top. This is a story where this couple must fight for what they love and battle their own insecurities, while holding the weight of the world on their shoulders.
I absolutely loved Zachary and Presley. Their connection was unreal; it wasn't forced or too perfect. It made their story feel real to me. And that is what I love most about this story....this love, their love, was everything I had hoped for. If you are looking to read a book that is a roller coaster of emotions, than SYS is definitely the book for you. I can definitely say that I am dying for book two in this series. The secondary characters are a huge part of this story, because they help Zachary and Presley in too many ways to state. This is another wonderful story from Ms, Michaels! I give Say You'll Stay 4.5 Stars!!
I <3 PP - An emotionally gripping story of loss, forgiveness and love .
Say You’ll Stay is the second chance love story between Presley and Zach. From childhood friends, to young love to epic heartbreak. Seventeen years have passed since these two have seen each other. Lives moved on, hearts learned to love someone else, but it wasn’t enough time to change the way their hearts knew how to love each other. When Presley’s world crumbles she is forced to move home to the small town she never thought she’d return to. A mother, two boys and three broken hearts begin a new life when she returns home.
This is one of those books where I am going to struggle to review it. There is so much that I want to talk about, but I just can't. These are moments in the book that each reader has to experience for themselves. So I am going to try to do this book and Corinne justice and I doubt I will even come close to properly expressing how this story affected me.
Just reading the dedication caused a lump to form in my throat. A few sentences from Corinne and the first punch to the gut was delivered. It took 4% into this story for the dam to break and me to be left a sobbing mess. I can’t remember a book that had me that early. A heroine that in an instant was felt in my heart so deeply. The emotions are out of control from page one and I loved Presley, Logan and Cayden and I felt like I was sitting in their living room clutching this broken family in my arms.
As the story continues and Presley returns home and you experience how this small town accepts her back into the fold and you learn the reasons why she had to escape and why she never wanted to return, you still feel that pain so deeply. You meet Zach and you want to hate him. You learn the pieces of their past as memories flood the pages. Your heart soars with the moments of pure young love and you’re crushed when it all falls apart. But this wasn’t just about the highs and lows. I think this is the most angsty story Corinne has ever written. Once I got control of my tears and told myself to woman-up, I was white-knuckling my kindle. My stomach in knots. The early interactions between Zach and Presley tore me apart. And as things start to come together and I was able to start to breath and feel like I was in my safe place, I just knew that something was coming. I knew this was just too good to be true. I knew with everything I am that Corinne was not done squeezing my heart. There were still feels to be rung from that lump of muscle in my chest.
Second chance romances are my guilty pleasure. There is something about the hope you find in a story like this. The hurt, the hate, the forgiveness and the love. It captures every emotion and as much as the story breaks you, it heals you so you find deeper appreciation for what you have when it’s all said and done.
I can’t not mention the co-staring character that stole my heart. Wyatt, Zach’s brother. From the first time you meet Wyatt you love him. He’s sexy, he’s funny and you just know that his story will be epic when it happens. Many times when I felt like I was going to burst, Wyatt would show up and insert some needed levity.
Say You’ll Stay is a romance of epic proportions. An emotionally gripping story of loss, forgiveness and love that you will feel deep down to your bones. You need to read this book. You need to experience this story. My heart is still reeling from spending four hours with these characters. The year is only halfway through, but this book just secured its place as a top read of 2016.
KAWilliams89 - Amazing!!!
Say You'll Stay.... it had my heart from the first page. It was so emotional, but so real. The Hennington boys aren't like just any of the other southern guys you read about in other books. They are... well... real. They aren't perfect by any means... but they are southern gentlemen who like to take care of what is theirs. Pressley is... so strong and courageous. She went through SO much, and continued to take care of her family, and put them first. When she could have given up many times... she didn't. She pulled up her boot straps and got herself together. I have always been a huge fan of Corrine's books. She always reels you in and keeps you going. I honestly, didn't think that I could love any of her other books more than I did Beloved/Beholden from the Salvation Series. But... I have been sorely mistaken. I cannot wait to read Trent and Wyatt's book. I think that Corrine has some good things in store for those boys as well!
SpRiTe_21 - Great second chance at love story
If you love a story about overcoming tragedy and finding your way back home...this is a read for you. This is Zach and Preseley's story about how life got in their way in their younger years and they both were hurt. Then years later life throws them both a curve ball and gives them a second chance. While the main characters of this story are very well developed, the secondary characters are just as well, and will leave you wanting more of the Hennington Brothers.
Jeanneve55 - Amazing
This story will break you from the beginning but it puts you back together as the story progresses. There is heartbreak, sadness, loneliness, and hope in this story. The love that they feel for one another is timeless.
LizGilbert1307 - A Grand Slam
Where to begin? Another grand slam for Corinne! This book is a second chance romance. Zack and Presley are childhood friends that turned into an epic love story. The whole town sees it, but then it fell apart. I will say I am not an emotional person and this book had me in tears from the very beginning! This book was an emotional roller coaster. Just when you think they are on the right path, BOOM, a few things happen that you won't see coming! This will be one of the best reads for 2016!
ChristyPeck - Blown Away!
This amazing book took my breath away and stole my heart. Ms. Michaels sucked me right into the story and I felt like I lived every emotion. The writing was so stunning that I could close my eyes and envision every single detail. The story line gripped my soul and had my emotions all over the place. The characters – every single one of them stole my heart. They feel like family. It’s not very often that an author can write a story so strong that I feel it down deep in my soul but Ms. Michaels did with this one! I love second chance romances and this one is phenomenal! Be prepared to do nothing but read once you start this one! It is Un-Put-Downable! All the stars for all the feels!
Angie McGuire - Amazing!
I received an ARC for an honest review.
I cannot not express the emotions I'm feeling at this moment. I was crushed, I cried, I fell in love, My heart broke more than once...but this book was one of the best books I've ever read.
I think that some people will have different feels in this book- some won't cry, others will cry a river. Some will get angry , some will be sad, but everyone will feel the love from these two. Zach Hennington was phenomenal in this book. Presley has been through so much in her life, and she's not sure if she can move forward. She's bent and broken , but she has to remain focused for the sake of her children...but even that is difficult at first.
When things possibly couldn't get worse for Presley, they truly do. I feel so much for her.. And then Zach shows up, and hearts are broken again. Can these two have their second chance? Can they let their love be the focus of what needs to be relegated? I haven't felt love from two characters in a book in a while, but you definitely feel it from these two...from the very beginning.
I cannot not express to you the need to read this book. If I could give more than 5***** I definitely would. This definitely will be a re-read for me.
RobinDBLA - Say You'll Stay
Corinne Michaels has a way with her words that makes me feel the emotions of her characters, and Say You'll Stay is no different. It is full of emotions! Zach & Presley were high school sweethearts, who are given a second chance at love. They both have wronged the other in the past and watching them move forward is beautiful!
Aprilmash - AMAZING
Wow... I went into this book not knowing what to expected. This is a second chance story between Presley and Zack. Right from the being it had me in tears. This is a must read for 2016. Believe me, you will love the Hennington brothers and be glad you read it.
MelErickson - AMAZING in love with this story
AMAZING! I love a second chance romance. This is now officially one of my favorite books ever. This story is so different from anything . The feelings I have are overwhelming. Presley has to deal with some hard times and make some choices that she isn't happy with but for her children she makes the decision she never wanted to make again... To go home. Belt Buckle is Presley's Hell. What happens next is EVERYTHING! You Have to read this . The Hennington Brothers are delicious . Who doesn't love a sexy cowboy?
