From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new emotional and riveting standalone love story.

One night, eight years ago, she gave me peace.

Coming back here has given me something I never thought I’d get . . . a second chance.

I can always count on Corinne Michales to give me all the feels, and she did just that with Come Back for Me. This story captivated me from the start and was such a emotional and beautiful read.

This book is a stand alone, but it’s also the start of a series of standalones featuring four brothers. Connor Arrowood is the youngest of the four. Connor is back in his hometown of Sugarloaf, PA for t

This book is just everything. I have never been so completely captivated by two characters as I was with them. Connor and Ellie are two souls that need each other so desperately and their heartbreak, love, loss and triumphs are breathtaking.

☆ Corinne Michaels gives us a story like nothing she's given us before. I was truly surprised by where this story took us and happy with the journey.

super sweet, emotional and absolutely swoon worthy, but also predictable—though not glaringly so. i mean, this kind of story is archetypal. mostly i really enjoyed it bcs:

1) the H is a retiring navy seal. and i love me some military men.

2) its set in a small town/ranch area. though the book doesnt really talk much about the lifestyle of it unless in passing.

3) theres a cute seven year old. and in case i dont say this enough, i loovvveee adorable kids in books.

the characters are likeable

Amazing start of new series. This is a beautiful second chance love story. This story is everything you expect from Corinne.
- Captivating and engaging Plot
- Realistic and relatable characters
- Flawless writing
- story & characters that stay with you long after the story ends

I literally binge read this book. I was enthralled and captivated with the story and Connor & Ellie. I loved Connor, the youngest Arrowood brother. Both Connor and Ellie are hurt by those close to them.

I'm probably the only person who read this book who didn't fall in love with the story.
This could be entirely my own issue, but I didn't connect at all with the characters nor the plot.
The story progression was too slow for me for just about the first half of the book and then things seemed to move too fast between the Hero and Heroine during the second half.

There are so many five-star reviews out there for this book, so this may be a true page-turner for fans of Corinne Michaels.

I look through the window for the hundredth time. I keep checking to make sure she’s really there and that this isn’t some alternate reality I’ve created in my head. Right now, I trust nothing because I’m not really sure I’m alive and this isn’t limbo.

It’s as if I’ve been living in black-and-white but have just stepped into full color and the vividness of life around me is blinding.

Corinne Michaels has done it again! This is the introduction to a new family series of brothers that have secrets, vows, and overall swoon-worthy personalities that make you want to know more with every word. This story revolves around the youngest Arrowwood brother, Connor, a retiring Navy SEAL and Ellie the woman he had a one-night stand with before he joined the military. This is a journey of second chances, family, and finding self-strength. I am super excited about th

OMG. Wow. I am trying to gather the words on just how spectacular this book was. Corinne will make you hope and believe and then rip your heart out. She’ll mend it in the end giving you that heartwarming ache from a great romance. It was about second chances, facing fears and redemption.

For Connor coming back to the one place he vowed never to return was a turning point. It brought him back to his angel. And Ellie needed to conquer bigger demons and fears. She needed the love and care of a rea

Leave it to Corinne Michaels to once again rip my heart out and mend it in a few hundred pages. Come Back for Me, book one in her Arrowood Brothers Series took me on a gorgeous ride through Sugarloaf, Pennsylvania and had me missing the place where I grew up.

Connor Arrowood is back in town after his father's death. Due to stipulations of the will he's got to stay on the property he vowed to never return to for six months. Upon his return he befriends a little girl he never knew he needed

Honestly this book took me by surprise. First of all, I love all things Corinne Michaels. but this book, this book was so amazing, didn't see the turns coming, caught me off-guard, and the swoon, and did I say so wonderfully surprised. All I really have to say is Move over Salvation series men, the Arrowood brothers are coming for you and they are bringing out the big guns. The Swoon is off the charts, the emotions are all there. I fell utterly head of heels in love with Connor and you will too. ...more

This book!!!! THIS BOOK took me to places I didn't think I wanted to be and yet, Ms. Michaels took me there as a willing captive; one that eventually admitted to herself that Connor Arrowood had done the IMPOSSIBLE!!! He has overtaken my undying, unconditional love for a Dreamboat of a man and I'm not at all ashamed to admit it! He is ALLLLL the things I've come to expect from this author....and sooooooo much more!

In typical Corinne Michaels fashion, this book has enough angst and drama to sink

Connor and Ellie met eight years ago, both at a low point in their lives. They used each other for one night, and then she was gone. Eight years later, when Connor returns to the town he swore he'd never go back to, he sees her, and it's as if no time has passed. Her daughter Hadley is the cutest thing ever, and Connor is immediately taken with her.

Beautiful story about Ellie and Connor. Corinne hit this one out of the park dealing with a very serious topic that affects so many families.

Oh, the swoon! The beautiful, emotional, utterly romantic swoon! Corinne Michaels starts off her new series with a second-chance love story with a twist, a tortured heroine, an adorable 7-year-old, and a tormented but loving hero to die for. I loved it!

What a beautiful story!

I have been a longtime fan of Corinne Michaels' powerful and emotional love stories. They always pack a major punch and leave me addicted for more. Connor and Ellie in Come Back For Me are no different. They had such an amazing connection that jumped right off the pages! I was immediately pulled in and committed.

Here’s what I loved:

I have devoured everything that Corinne Michaels has written since I discovered her at the beginning of the year, and this book.. This is her most heartbreaking, emotional, all consuming, has you on the edge of your seat romance she has ever written.

How do I even put into words how amazing this book is?! Connor brings to life my favorite things in a hero—military, sexy, and an overall good guy. Ellie overcomes so much during the story and it was amazingly well written.

This book had a totally captivating storyline that really hooks you from the very beginning. I couldn’t put it down once I started it!! I’d give it 10 stars if I could!!

It’s taken me a couple days after reading Come Back For me to finally write this review. I had to process this book, the emotions and the story as a whole! I was told Connor would make me ask “Liam Who” (if you read the Salvation Series you know about Liam..and meet him in this book a bit too). I will say Connor came so close (but Liam is still my #1).
I absolutely LOVED it brought the Salvation Series men into this book but had its own story line all its own. Its nice getting to see glimpses of
