Release Blitz & Review: A Moment for Us by Corinne Michaels

A Moment for Us by Corinne Michaels is now live!

New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels returns to Willow Creek Valley in this stunning surprise baby/unrequited love romance.


I was totally over Joshua Parkerson.

Sure, I had a teenage crush on him way back when--and everyone knew it--but he never saw me as anything but his little brother's friend, the girl who got tongue-tied any time he walked into a room.

I had long ago accepted the fact that his strong arms would never hold me, his lush lips would never claim mine, and his blue eyes would never see me as anything more than who I used to be.

But now he's back in Willow Creek Valley, and there's a brand-new spark between us--even he can't fight it. Our chemistry is explosive, and every time we're together, I swear I can feel the earth shake.

It doesn't mean anything... how could it? I'm over him.

Until I see that little pink plus sign, and the earth stops turning completely.

Now I want it all again, a life with him. But Joshua built walls around his heart for a reason, and his secrets haunt him.

How can I show him that the ghosts of his past don't have to define our new family's future?

One of the reasons I return to Corinne Michaels again and again is that she so consistently delivers contemporary romances that pack an emotional punch. A Moment for Us is no exception. Once I picked it up, I didn’t want to put it down. I had to know how Josh and Delia’s story would unfold, even as it was breaking my heart.

Delia had been in love with Joshua Parkerson for as long as she could remember. Being friends with his brother Alex meant she saw Josh often, but he always kept his distance. Except for that one shared kiss on graduation night. But nothing changed, and beyond a few mixed signals from Josh, it seemed that her feelings were truly unrequited. When Josh returned to Willow Creek Valley after several years away… that’s when things got interesting.

Nothing in life is guaranteed anyway, so I might as well take what's offered. Maybe I can love him enough for the both of us.

Josh and Delia had a push and pull to their relationship that was equal parts delicious and maddening.  I was constantly surprised at how forthright Delia was when it came to letting Josh know how she felt. She was never coy, never played games; she straight up told him how she felt and what she wanted. She also let him know that she was under no illusion that he felt the same. But the thing is, saying you expect nothing and hoping for more are two different things. The heart wants what it wants and how do you keep yourself from truly hoping? And that’s the position Delia found herself in over and over. Josh, despite his better judgement, and his conviction that love equated to loss, couldn’t stay away. He carried a heavy mantle of guilt from his past and it weighed him down in a way that was heartbreaking. So many times, I wanted to give Joshua a hug, tell him it was okay to put down the burden he carried, and allow himself to love and be loved.

Delia is my biggest hope and my greatest fear.

Josh and Delia’s journey was a rocky one and the obstacles they faced weren’t just bumps in the road but life-altering events. Michaels didn’t just pierce my heart, she twisted the knife and made sure I was reading through tears on more than one occasion. But that’s the beauty of Michaels storytelling, because yes, her characters do suffer, but they come through it stronger, unbreakable, and their happy ending is all the more fulfilling.

A Moment for Us can be read as a standalone, but why deprive yourself of the goodness of the previous books in the series? Do yourself a favor, read Return to Us, then Could Have Been Us, and enjoy all that the Willow Creek Valley series has to offer. A Moment for Us is a story of family and love and healing – and is not to be missed.

  4. I may have read a book from her a long while back. This sounds angsty in the best way. Unrequited love can be such a heartbreak!

  6. It's nice to read romances that have a bit more depth sometimes. I feel a little bit bad for Delia that her feelings seem so one-sided for so long.

    1. I agree. There were times I wondered how long Delia was going to hold on to her (supposedly) one-sided feelings, but the heart wants what it wants! :)

    1. Oh, I think you would love this series, Jen! And yes, Return to Us is the first book. Or you could even backtrack a bit and start with the Arrowood Brothers series (first book is Come Back For Me). It's 4 books and I loved them so much. Plus there are a few minor tie-ins in between the series. You really don't have to read the Arrowood series first but it was fun to see the carryover details/characters.

    2. I bought two other books by her in the past but they are different stories. I'll look to see if my library has either one of these, thank you so much for the heads up!
