    If I Only Knew may very well be my new favorite Corinne Michaels book. It was emotional, sexy, funny, and I loved everything about it!

    If I Only Knew is my first book by Corinne Michaels. I have heard good things about her books, but hadn't previously had the opportunity to read any of them yet. And then I got the opportunity to listen to If I Only Knew on audio. Now I find myself in that place that fellow book lovers can sympathize with where I wonder what the heck was I thinking holding off so long.

    This story was everything I love about romance and had me completely caught up in it. I loved the main characters Milo and Daniel
    I AM SMITTEN! Complete and utterly smitten. God, this story swept me off my feet and the audio was just sinfully delicious! Both narrators—Sophie Eastlake and Shane East—captured the characters so perfectly well, and they had the British accent down pat. Especially Shane East narrating Milo’s POV—it was like this rich, decadent chocolate you won’t ever want to get enough of! I don’t even know how I survived listening to the entire thing without combusting. All I know is that this book was so viv ...more
    5 stars!

    OMG, this book just completely swept me away! Fun, funny, sweet, emotional, romantic, functional and so, so swoony, it’s a beautiful love story and I freaking loved it!

    This book is the fourth in a series of interconnected standalones about four girlfriends – each of whom are absolutely fabulous! You don’t have to have read all of the previous books to enjoy this one (you can find the reading order here), but if you’re an OCD reader like me who likes to have all of the backstory and read

    The perfect ending to my favorite series from Corinne Michaels! This group of ladies own my heart. Their friendship, their support of each other, their love for one another is the epitome of what friendship should be and I loved this part of the stories as much as I loved the romance.

    Danielle and Milo have the best chemistry. They start out as a bit of enemies to lovers, and I loved the moments of antagonism and the grit Danielle showed to keep Milo in

From start to finish this book had me head over heels, Milo and Dani and the kids swoon worthy! Honestly I have such a book hangover. I couldn't put it down but then I didn't want it to end.

    If I only knew you’d turn my world upside down . . .”
    I fell soo hard in love with this story. I started this book with some background knowledge of Danielle and Milo since they were introduced in prior books of this series (a group of 4 best friends). I will say that the character development was incredible because what I thought I knew before was nothing. Here I was able to REALLY get to know them. AND I loved every minute of it.

    The best of this series, HANDS DOWN!

    This has a perfect combination of heart hurt and humor plus sexy. I love when a woman can change a man's perspective of a fulfilling life because he can't live without her.

    Absolutely fantastic!

    Omg Best. Book. Ever.
    Corinne literally just wrote my favorite book. I can’t say enough about it. I loved Danielle so much. I want to be in her tribe. She’s a rockstar mom who was dealt more than she thought she could handle but she was so much stronger than she ever thought. And Milo. My love. My favorite BBF. Amazing, arrogant, cocky, sexy beast with a heart of gold. This book gave me all the feels and left me with the biggest smile ever!

    Danielle Bergen had her perfect life ripped away from her and she's left struggling to keep her family from falling apart. With a rebellious teenager and young son to raise, most days she feels like a failure, but despite that, she's killing it at work. So much so, she earns a pretty sweet promotion...the only problem is her new hunky, British assistant is out for her job.

    Milo Huxley was just so unexpected though! I won't deny that he comes off as a selfish playboy when you first meet him, but,

    After Danielle’s husband is shot and killed, she is forced to continue on for the sake of her children. Obtaining a full-time job, working for her best friend’s husband, she is forced to work side-by-side with his half brother, a sexy Brit named Milo. The rest is inevitable... Although the romance aspect of this book was extremely predictable, I really, really enjoyed this book! It’s exceptionally well written,

We also meet Milo again and he is so sweet, sarcastic, and deliciously sexy! He is an unapologetic playboy but was blindsided by the strong, smart, sexy woman.

    I have read every book by Corinne Michaels. She has wonderful series, s tandalones and now she has outdone herself with If I Only Knew!

    If I only Knew brings youg so much heartbreak for Dani and Milo is so full of himself. Dani and her children lost their husband and dad and they are still trying to get past everything that has happened. Poor Milo just wants a job that should be his and is willing to do whatever is necessary to get that job OR so he thinks.

    Where do I even start? Can I just send a bag of D to CM in the mail and call it a day?
    I think what I loved most about this series is that while it falls into the rom-com genre, it was packed full of emotions. I can sometimes struggle with the straight, by the book, rom-coms out there, while fun, I need to have some major feels tear me apart while reading. Corinne Michaels is the queen of tear your heart out writing. I think she may actually use our turmoil for substance to keep her black heart

    I was swept away by Danielle and Milo’s story. Milo is swoon worthy throughout and he’s a new contender for my favorite Corinne hero. By far my best read so far in 2019 and I didn’t want it to end!! “No one in this tribe walks alone” might just be my favorite book quote of all time...because this group of friends lives by that mantra. Loved it so much!!

    “Sometimes the plan we have isn’t the one we’re meant to follow.”

    This is a fabulous love story between Danielle, a widowed mother of 2, and Milo, an entitled jerk face who returns to the family business as a prodigal son. As a condition of coming back, Milo is forced to work as Danielle’s assistant in order to reestablish trust with the company. Their relationship is cordial at best: Danielle being all busin

    This is Danielle and Milo's story. It is sweet, sexy, sassy, and heartbreaking. Danielle is navigating a new chapter in her life after tragedy. Milo is coming to terms with how people perceive him outwardly. They are forced to work together and through the journey learn about themselves. I really enjoyed all the heartbreak and sassiness that both characters brought to the table. The narrator obtained for Milo...OMG his voice just melts your panties with every word he spoke.

    Shane East is Perfection with his silky accent and seductive voice.
    Sophie Eastlake bring the sweetness that we all know from Dani.

    If I Only Knew is by far Corinne Michaels best audiobook to date!
    The storyline is so utterly captivating and so enticing you can't help but consume every single word. Not to mention the extraordinary narration by Sophie Eastlake & Shane East.

    So this book started off strong. I really liked Danielle. She was strong and feisty. Milo was arrogant but it worked. The couple had some good banter and the sexy times were steamy! My main and only issue is that the ending felt rushed. The whole story we went from hate, to like, to lust, to love and I kind of wanted more in those last few chapters. I listened to the audio version of the story and the narrators did an excellent job.

    DNF at 32%.

    I forgot that I’ve tried this author before, and that her wooden prose, nonexistent character depth, and woeful inability to manage incremental plot development and any sort of tension whatsoever is definitely not for me.

    She is also completely inept at sketching a male character and creating believable male dialogue - internal and verbal. Not that her female exchanges are much better; authors need to get past the false belief that women calling each other bitches is a hallmark of st
