It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him.
That was seventeen years ago.
I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.
Alone, penniless, and with two boys, I had no choice but to return to Tennessee. He wasn’t supposed to be there. I should’ve been safe. However, fate has a way of stepping in.
This time around, the tables are turned. It’s my decision. Second chances do exist, but I don’t know if we can repair what’s already been broken . . .

Rating: 4.5 stars!!!
I have loved every single Corrine Michaels book and I was excited to start the first in her new Return to Me series. This book started out a little differently than I expected but it got my attention and wouldn’t let go of it!
After her husband of almost two decades betrays her, Presley finds herself with no answers, and left to raise their twin boys and take care of the household. The blows keep coming and Presley is forced to return to her hometown, the place she has avoided since she left over a decade ago.
When faced with her past, a person she never though she would see again, Presley has to work through the memories of that betrayal while trying to find her footing in her new life. Zachary, her childhood sweetheart broke her heart when he left, and now she has to face him again. But seeing your past can bring back everything you don’t want to feel too. Can Presley find her way in her new circumstances? Can she do it without help?
Presley and Zachary’s story is my favorite second chance love story ever, they talked about their feeling and didn’t try to just move forward without making sure the past stayed where it was suppose to. I was so happy to see the way this played out! Presley’s twins were adorable!! They have a hard time adjusting but they are truly sweet and funny boys so it was nice to read about them and their relationship with their mom and with Zachary.
I can continue to tell you about how wonderful and sweet this book was but you should really ONE-CLICK it and read it yourself!! You won’t be disappointed!!! Now bring in book 2 in the series, I wonder which amazing secondary character we get to read about…

“Hey.” Zach peers at me as I shake off my thoughts. “I figured you’d be asleep.” He climbs the steps slowly as I get to my feet.
“I figured you’d be gone.”
I walk toward him, unsure of why he’s here. “I left for a bit, but wanted to come check on you.”
He snickers. “I couldn’t sleep.”
“Me either.” He’s close enough that I can smell his cologne. Even after a long night, being in the woods, he smells like home.
I take another step.
I’m so close I have to tilt my head to look into his eyes.
I breathe him in, feel his heat, and I can’t stop myself. I want him. I need him. I grip his neck and yank his mouth to mine. I kiss him. I kiss him and give in to everything I’ve been feeling. He doesn’t waste a second. His arms wrap around me, holding my body against his. My fingers grip his neck, keeping him exactly where I need him. This kiss is frantic, but God it feels good.
