Sunny Shelly’s Review: Return To Us, by Corinne Michaels


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?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Ah! Return To Us ticked all the boxes for a perfect second-chance romance. Grayson is a broody, sullen, single dad, still nursing a heartbreak from 14 years earlier. Jess never really wanted to let him go, and after a near-death experience, she finds herself back in the small town she left behind, facing the ghosts of her past. Namely, Grayson.

There is a lot of hurt between Gray and Jess, and it’s a rough go before they really get to a place where they can be friends again. But I loved how much these two loved one another. They are on fire when they are in the same room together, and I adored how easily Jess slipped into their family, and how she got along with little Amelia.

But despite their love, there’s always this feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Jess only planned to stay long enough to heal after a plane crash. But is reuniting with her first love enough to make her want to stick around? Meanwhile, being left behind is one of Gray’s biggest insecurities… When their relationship reaches a point of Jess being able to physically leave, will Gray leave her before she is able to leave him again?

I loved the link to Sugarloaf and Corinne’s Arrowood Brother series — Jacob was in the plane crash with Jess in Stay For Me, and Gray’s brother, Oliver, had previously dated Devney in the beginning of Fight For Me. There’s a great scene at the end of Return to Us where Jess and Gray have a meeting with Jacob and Brenna regarding Gray’s plan to get out from under his father’s thumb, and I can’t wait to see where the rest of this series goes!!!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
