Release Blitz & Review: Could Have Been Us by Corinne Michaels



Could Have Been Us by Corinne Michaels is now live!


New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels returns to the Willow Creek Valley Series in this stunning small town, brother's best friend romance.

Fifteen years ago, I fell for Jack O'Donnell.

I was just a girl, but I knew my brother's best friend was the only man I'd ever love.

On my eighteenth birthday, when I asked him to kiss me, I never imagined it would change my life so completely.

I gave Jack everything that night.

In order to move on, we had to go our separate ways and pretend like nothing happened... as though it wasn't the greatest moment of my life.

But even that wasn't as heartbreaking as the secret we were forced to keep.

I've tried not to think about how much I still love him. How I long to be back in his strong arms or the way his hazel eyes make my heart race.

Until he kisses me again. And this time there's no turning back. This time I know what it means.

We belong together and there's no use denying it any longer.

But our feelings aren't the only thing that won't stay buried, our past resurfaces and threatens to destroy our second chance at happiness.

When our love is tested once again, will we be strong enough to stand together?

5 stars for Could Have Been Us! 

Corinne Michaels has done it again! I don’t know how Corinne continues to write books this amazing but she does! As all of her stories do, this one sucked me right in and made me want more. I don’t want to say any spoilers so I’ll keep this review quite vague and brief.

I LOVED Could Have Been Us so much. Jack and Stella’s story was so great with so much emotion paired with so much joy. It was also such a unique story, it was so interesting to read and I had no idea what would happen next. 

The book begins with an intense twist that pulls on your heart-strings from the get go. Once you start this story, get ready to go on a roller coaster of emotions that you’re probably used to with Corinne’s writing. 

If you’ve read book one in the series, Return To Us, the first part of this book takes place on the same timeline giving us an even more in depth look into the world that Corinne has built. The way Corinne has done this is so brilliant. 

Jack is the outgoing fun guy that everyone loves to be friends with while Stella is just pretending everything is fine and that she’s not missing something in her life and that she hasn’t loved Jack since she was a teen. Jack and Stella’s love story is epic and these two are truly meant to be. Their chemistry is intense even when they’re trying to stay away from each other. Both of these characters have great personalities but above all else they are so strong and the love they share for each other is visible throughout the whole journey. 

This is a small town, friends to lovers, best friends sister story that will take you on an incredible journey of love, hope and selflessness. This story is just so unforgettable. You’ll feel every emotion as you read this beautiful story. I would HIGHLY recommend you read this book!
