Emily Young had two goals in her life:
1. Make it big in country music.
2. Get the hell out of Bell Buckle.

She was doing it. She was on her way, until Cooper Townsend landed backstage at her show in Dallas.

This gorgeous, rugged, man of few words was one cowboy she couldn’t afford to let distract her. But with his slow smile and rough hands, she just couldn’t keep away.

There wasn't anything wrong with this story and I actually did enjoy reading it, but I never really saw a connection between Emily and Cooper. Their relationship just moved too fast for me and I felt like they were barely together in the book. It's a novella so I was expecting a fast paced story but it seemed like there were more pages dedicated to them apart than there were those dedicated to them as a couple and it left wanting more.

Side note: This isn't

Lexi Blake has come together with an AMAZING group of authors to bring us the Lexi Blake Crossover Collection. It’s pairing one of my favorites, the Masters & Mercenaries Series, with some of your beloved series from authors we all love and adore! Two different worlds come crashing together, giving fans something extremely special to read about.

I am a HUGE fan of the Return To Me Series. That series started off with me in tears and midway through had me married off and by the end, I was tangled in a love triangle between two brothers, but graciously, my amazing husband, Wyatt gave me a hall pass for the evening (thanks, babe. You’re the best xx).

So when I learned that we were going to get Cooper's book, I was all over that. Even if it was going to be delivered via a crossover of Lexi Blake’s M&M series. Corinne had me at Cooper.

So this is my third one of these today, and again, it was just OK. I'll be straight up honest and admit this had a few things against it even before I started reading it. One, I am not a fan of friends to lovers books. Add in the fact that this guy kissed (at least once) and was hung up on this heroines best friend AND the heroine was a musician, and I knew unless it was amazing I was going to struggle with it. Not to mention the connection to the M&M series was tenuous at best. I thought al

Say You Won’t Let Go is a novella in the Return to Me series. It can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading the previous books at some point. Those Hennington Brothers are delicious. If you read them then you have met Cooper and Emily before. They grew up together on different sides of the tracks but you wouldn’t know it. Emily tied in perfectly with the group of cowboys and her girlfriends.

Emily was on tour, opening for the one and only Luke Berry. She was doing it. She was making

I have been waiting FOREVER (or so it seems like) for this book, the very last in the Return to Me series by Corinne Michaels and a part of Lexi Blake's Masters & Mercenaries Crossover Collection! It was EVERYTHING I expected it to be....and sooooooo much MORE!

I have to say that I LOVE the Hennington boys (especially Wyatt 💖 ) but Cooper Townsend stole my heart and I don't know that I'll EVER get it back! He wants to settle down and have a family but he's been burned before, come in second

So so so loved this book. There's so much packed into this beautiful novella, that I was amazingly surprised about how much I was able to get out of it. So worth the read!

Cooper truly is the perfect southern gentleman, and it is slightly confusing as to how he hasn't snagged a woman yet, until you see the chemistry he has with Emily. They are just wonderful together. Emily and Cooper have known each other for many years, growing up in Bell Buckle together, and her being friends with his sister,

Say You Won't Let Go is Corinne Michaels' newest gem which is Cooper's story from the Return to Me series, but also crosses over with Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries! I love Corinne and I'm not gonna lie, I was so mad at her when Cooper didn't get his happily ever after. Now I love her again because she gave her fans what we asked for. MORE COOPER. And because he's just perfection, his story is everything I wanted it to be and more. He has known Emily for a long time. They have a history wh ...more

Emily Young was finally living her dream. She’d made it out of the small town of Bell Buckle, Tennessee and onto the tour of one of country music’s biggest stars as his opening act. She was no longer the poor girl who was always hungry and relied on her friends to give her hand me downs, but a rising star who felt completely at home in the spotlight. She had everything she wanted . . . until Cooper Townsend showed up backstage at one of her concerts.

Cooper Townsend is...WOW!!

I’ve been dying to read Cooper and Emily’s story ever since it was announced. It was so worth the wait (although I wish it was longer because he is just perfect!).

Emily is the last single girl in the crazy Bell Buckle gang...and that’s how she likes it. She’s always wanted to get out of the small town and make it big in music. Or so she thought!

Cooper is in the same town as Emily while she is touring and is a support act for Luke, the biggest country star. He watches

Cooper is a very possessive man and doesn't like others ogling his woman, “darlin’, you need to go back and change,” Cooper says as he looks me up and down." Cooper is very protective of what's his, “there’s nothing for you to know other than in forty-eight hours I’ll have you in my arms and no one will get close to you.” I liked this novella Cooper wasreally rugged.

Wow such an amazing book. I love cooper. Corrine Michaels has another great book. I couldn't put it down. Loved every second. Love the story and writing. Romance with a little bit of mystery-suspense. Already want to read it again. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Cooper Townsend is going to ruin me for all men.

Yup, I agree with you Emily. Right there with ya girl.


Now, I'm going to be straight with you. I fell in love with Cooper pretty early on in the Return To Me series. There's just something about him that had me intrigued since his character first appeared. He's just so....swoon worthy :)

Now, just for a second, I'm going to divert your attention. Because I want to set the scene here. I want you to close your eyes

Are you ready to go back to go back to Bell Buckle in this Retune to Me novella? The novella, Say You Won’t Let Go, by Corinne Michaels is part of the Lexi Blake crossover to her Masters & Mercenaries series and intertwines characters from both series and I loved it!

Emily Young grew up knowing she was destined to leave Bell Buckle. All she wanted was make it big as a country music artist and make something of herself. And she was finally on her way. She was an opening act and gaining tracti

Lana ❇✾Dirty Girl Romance❇✾

Say You Won't Let Go was a sweet and steamy friends to lovers romance and also my first Corinne Michaels book. While set in Lexi Blake's Masters & Mercenaries series, none of the MCs were from that world. Emily Young had a brief cameo in Nobody Does It Better, but the hero being from Corinne's Return To Me series was entirely new to me.

Having said that, I initially struggled a bit to truly buy into the romance between Emily and Cooper. There was clearly a backstory to them, and not

I loved Emily & Cooper’s friends to lovers story. This book can be read as a stand alone, but having read the previous books, I knew their characters and their history. Corinne added a bit of suspense that added to the love story.
Say You Won’t Let Go was the final book in the Return to Me series by Corrine Michaels. It was a crossover with Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries series.

We met Cooper and Emily in previous books. Cooper was a rancher in the small town of Bell Buckle. He was born and raised there and eventually took over his family’s farm. Emily was raised in the small town as well but got out of town as quickly as she could to pursue a country music career.

Emily and Cooper were childhood friends along with th

3.5 stars. I enjoyed this novella. We know Cooper (and have met Emily) from the previous Return to Me books, but this reads well as a standalone. This is a fast easy read. I like that they have a long friendship history so that helps with the relatively quick relationship progression due to this being a novella- and there is still plenty of story as well. I can't wait to read Wade's book by Lexi Blake.

I loved Cooper Townsend in the Return to Me series as the supportive brother and the potential love interest. When I heard he’d be getting his own novella, I was excited but I had no idea how his story would play out.

What a great story this was. Cooper grew up with Emily Young and decides to look her up at a concert where she is performing. Emily’s star is on the rise in the country music world and having a part of her past show up is a welcome surprise. The sparks fly between the two old frien

Oh my since first setting foot in Bell Buckle I fell for Mr Townsend, his smooth Southern Charm and his swagger, with the air of confidence that surrounds him. I felt for him when he lost out to Trent and fell hard, but as they say everything happens for a reason !

Meanwhile Cooper is happy to live and run his farm in Bell Buckle, but something has been missing from his life.
