One word. Stay. 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 . . .
FIVE (HUGE) BOUNDLESS STARS
“Love doesn't let go, it grows stronger.”
I was browsing around to find a new audiobook to listen to, while I commute. I stumbled upon this gem of a story. I’ve never read a Corinne Michaels book before. But OMG! why did I not know of this amazing storyteller?!
In the beginning of the story, I felt something was not right. Of course, it really wasn’t what I had expected but Michaels really wanted to tear at your heart a little in the first few pages.
I loved the feel of this book. The only way I can describe it is, it's like Sweet Home Alabama. The whole small town, unrequited love. Presley and Zachary’s story was never finished. They lost so many years without each other. But sometimes hurt and no closure can do that.
When Zachary and Presley finally get together, It’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read/listened to. This is also one of the greatest love stories.
The narrators of this story were amazing. I loved Andi and Sawyer’s narration. Andi just really brought Presley to life. Every heartbreak, every secret, and every moment of love that filters from these characters. I felt all of them. I’m going to have to listen to more by her. They're a really great pair to listen to. And I’m a bit picky when listening to audiobooks.
Overall, I give this Five HUGE Boundless Stars. Say You’ll Stay, a beautiful, heartbreaking masterpiece.
