Description

From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new second chance standalone love story.

At eighteen, I walked away from Willow Creek Valley for good.
I was young, scared, and stupid, and it cost me the love of my life—Grayson Parkerson.

Fourteen years later, a crash sends me back home to recover.

Back to where we met, fell in love, and planned a future.
The one he’s now living as a single dad to his daughter.
Working at The Park Inn together gives us a chance to reconnect, and seeing him with his little girl makes me long for the days when he was mine. One look in his gorgeous blue-green eyes, and it’s like I never left. One kiss, and my world is upside down. One night together, and I know without a doubt, in his arms is where I belong.

I’m not the girl I was—intimidated by his wealthy family and desperate to escape our small town. I can imagine a new life for us here. 

But he’s learned to guard his heart, and trust won’t come easily.

How can I convince him to give first love a second chance?

    Love this book so much. Grayson is everything a daughter and a lady needs in life. He is such a caring protector. Love the second chance romance but it’s more than that. They both had to go through their own physical and emotional battles that made them both stronger. It made each of them appreciate each other more and actually love and forgive themselves on the process. Definitely recommend.

    Now, I know I’ve said WOW to a lot of Corinne Michaels’ books, but it never amazes me to see how much better each one gets. Return to Us is a story of HS sweethearts finding each other again. The way you actually feel and see the characters in your head makes you want to find a small town like Willow Creek Valley and drive straight over to find persons like them to bring into your life. I can’t wait to see what else this series brings us!

    A beautifully written second chance romance from Corinne Michaels! I absolutely love when there are young children who steal the “show” and this was no exception. Another great one!
  • One for the books!

    Right from the get go, I had chills. If you read CM’s last series then you’ve met Jessica and might know why. I ALWAYS prep myself before I begin a CM book, “You’re going to cry. You know this. You have yet to get through a Corinne Michaels book without crying.” And for the most part of this story, it was fairly happy with some angst. Jess was healing from the crash, she began to rekindle with her only love, Grayson, who now has an adorable little girl, Amelia. So why do I seem so shocked when she surprises the heck out of me?? WHYY. At this point I should KNOW that of course there will be tears. And lots of tears were shed. Grayson is possibly the sweetest guy in the CM world and so darn easy to love. I can see why Jess never got over him. This story is one for the books, it’s got it all! I can’t wait for book two!
  • FABULOUS!

  • A Beautiful Second Chance Romance

    What can I say except...Corinne has done it again. Her story telling knows no bounds and I am so very excited about this new series with the Parkerson family. First we get to know and fall in love with Grayson and Jessica (who we met Jessica when she was involved in the plane crash with Jacob Arrowood). Two high school sweethearts that are from very different families. Grayson has always had everything handed to him from his wealthy parents. He is supposed to take over the family business after college and he is also supposed to marry someone within their financial status. His parents don't care that he fell in love with Jessica, who doesn't come from the same social status as Grayson. Her father left her, her mother and her sister. Now her mother has to work as many jobs as possible to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. The Parkerson's look down on all of them. Jessica made the decision when she was just 18 that she would leave and walk away from Grayson so that he wouldn't have the chance to do that to her later. She broke both their hearts by doing this but she felt that this pain would be easier to bear by doing it herself instead of Grayson leaving her. She goes back home to heal after the plane crash. She wasn't expecting Grayson to be there nor was she expecting him to be a single father to the most adorable little girl. Return to Us is a beautifully written romance about two people who truly love each other but want to try and do what they each think is best. But in the end, the pull of the heart is stronger than any will they may have to try and stay away. I am so very excited about this new series that I can already tell will be filled with second chances and friends to lovers. I absolutely can't wait to read Jack and Stella's story next.

    What a beautiful story. I loved these two so much. We get a new series out of this wonderful book... Well if you ever wanted to know what happened in a certain arrowwood book... With a certain flight attendant, then you should definitely read this one. Grayson is so amazing. Truly the best and Jessica made some tough choices in her younger years, that have regret written all over them. But I see why she made them... Hindsight is always 20/20, right? I guess you need to read this book to figure out what I'm talking about because it's definitely worth it!!!

    Guys, we got a new set of people and small town life to fall in love with, and you totally will fall in love! Jessica suffered horrible events that forced her back into a life she was trying to forget and escape. Grayson was living his life with his daughter, trying to forget his past, when she walks back in. Grayson is the picture perfect nice guy regardless of broken hearts. Their love for each other never went away and we get to see if they can overcome obstacles in their way. It was a great second chance love story and we got to see some people from another book 😍. Can’t wait for the rest of these books.

    This book can be like your first love; you fall in love the minute you start reading and know that this will be your one true love. Corinne Michaels never, ever disappoints. Was there a point in the book that I hated her, wanted to scream and throw my kindle - Absolutely! This is a book about your first love, second chances, and knowing when your with your one true love. I absolutely loved Jessica, Grayson, and Amelia. This is a book that is a must read and then re-read - definitely worth more than 5 stars. It’s so good and thi
