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.
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
I've been so curious about Trent since Say You Want Me. We were given just enough to tease us and have us waiting on the edge of our seats to finally figure out that his deal is.
For as long as anyone in Bell Buckle can remember, it's been Grace and Trent. They seem to be the perfect couple and most everyone seems to think that they are meant to be together. But looks can be deceiving. Trent and Grace have fallen into a routine and it is not a good one. Grace realizes that Trent will never be the man that she needs him to be so she does the only thing she can do...she leaves him. Trent does not take their separation very well and he makes it quite hard for her to move on. Like really hard.
Gah! Those Hennington brothers sure are a charming bunch aren't they? As much as I wanted to be mad at Trent, I just couldn't do it. He had his reasons for acting the way he did, but unfortunately the lack of communication with Grace really did a number on their relationship. As much as I loved this book I got so frustrated at times. There was a lot of back and forth between the two of them that had me pulling my hair out. But that was also something that had to play out in order for the two of them to find their way back to each other.
This book is so good. And just like with all of Corinne's books, she brings the emotions. Whether you're laughing because Zach, Wyatt or Trent are together being idiots or your crying because something has just happened that is breaking your heart, you feel things. Lots of things.
One last thing...Cooper. COOPER. TOWNSEND. I freaking love that guy. He was the sweetest man and a small part of me was Team Cooper...how could you not be? Now he just needs his own happily ever after!
