I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.
I’m done being invisible.
It’s time to move on.
A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He’s kind, sexy, and attentive—everything a girl could want.
I thought I got it right this time.
That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from.
Say I’m Yours is a second chance romance of sorts. Grace has wasted years in her on-again off-again relationship with Trent waiting for him to realize she’s the one. At thirty-six, she’s decided she can’t wait any longer. Grace needs to make a break from her feelings for Trent, and find a man who will want a future with her. That man might just be her best friend’s brother, Cooper.
Cooper is everything Grace should want, but she’s having a hard time committing to a date much less a relationship with him. Cooper’s not the problem. It’s Trent. The guy won’t leave Grace alone. He’s set on proving to her he’s still the one for her.
I wasn’t a fan of Trent at first. He was a big idiot. Everyone, including Grace, warned him what would happen if he didn’t make things permanent with Grace. I’m happy he didn’t let her go, but it was frustrating to watch him woo her. Even with all of the sweet things he said and did, I wasn’t convinced that he shouldn’t have let her go. But the heart wants what it wants, and Grace’s wanted Trent.
Grace had major strength. I don’t know that I would have been able to walk away from Trent like she did. I know she questioned every minute of it, but every step she took was right. Every set back she had felt real, and I could imagine any of my friends in Grace’s position. I love that she followed her head and heart equally.
Poor Cooper. He threw himself into the impossible. I hated this love triangle for him. I knew he would never win, so that was good, but I still felt bad for him. Cooper was such a great guy. I wanted him to have an actual chance with someone. I hope Ms. Michaels will deliver us his story…It kind of felt like she might.
Say I’m Yours was a great book. I enjoyed every minute I was reading it, but there was something missing from it for me. I can’t really describe easily what it was. The first two books in this series had something this one didn’t. It was something they made me feel. Say I’m yours just didn’t touch me as deeply, I guess. I still loved every moment of it and know fans of the Hennington boys will, too.
