Lissa's Review: If I Only Knew by Corinne Michaels
REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: BAAE Inc. RELEASED: January 28, 2019 GENRE: contemporary romance LENGTH: 318 pages FORMAT: ebook, paperback, audible
My life was perfect - until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me.
My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed.
Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite.
I can’t stand him.
He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all. I’ve had enough unpredictability for one lifetime, thank you.
But soon enough, we’re fighting less and laughing more. He’s there for me when no one else is. And those good looks aren’t the only panty-dropping thing about him. If I only knew what to do about it . . . FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS If I Only Knew, is a beautiful romance between two unlikely people.
In the last book, Not Until You, you got a glimpse of what was going on in Danielle’s life. This book starts a year or so after her husband was murdered. Danielle is going through a lot and trying to be strong for herself and her kids. Obviously through it all, she has to get a job. That job happens to be at Dovetail. That’s where she meets someone she didn’t see coming.
This was a beautiful story between these two. They get to know each other a little fast. But there’s always a reason for someone to come into your life. I think Danielle saw that, no she wasn’t going to be single for the rest of her life. But it did take some time to let it sink in. Milo is the playboy, trotting around the world with different women but sees something in Danielle that takes his breath away.
If I Only Knew didn’t make me cry, I don’t think I fully connected with these characters on an emotional level. But it doesn’t take anything away from the fact that I did enjoy it. The writing is well done and loved the banter between everyone.
Overall, Four Boundless Stars.
