If I Only Knew by Corinne Michaels
My life was perfect – until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me.
My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed.
Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite.
I can’t stand him.
He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all. I’ve had enough unpredictability for one lifetime, thank you.
But soon enough, we’re fighting less and laughing more. He’s there for me when no one else is. And those good looks aren’t the only panty-dropping thing about him.
If I only knew what to do about it . . .
Well, I’m sad to see the journey of these 4 friends end, but this was the most perfect ending ever. Milo and Danielle’s story was beautiful and emotional, and it was definitely my favorite.
I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t ever think that I’d love another Corrine story as much as Say You’ll Stay. I’ve had that book on a pedestal for a few years now, however I’ve happily moved it over so that If I Only Knew can sit pretty right beside it.
I think what I love the best about this story is that it perfectly captures the highs and lows of life and love. Danielle is mourning her past and the life she had, while trying to rediscover her happiness and remember all of the things that she wanted out of life. Milo has had a hard time trying to figure out his role with his company and trying to prove himself to pretty much everyone in his life.
I loved the connection they formed, I wouldn’t necessarily call this an enemies to lovers but more so a mild irritation to lovers. It was fun to read how the relationship progress and both of them to work through fears and hesitations. As with the 3 books before this, there was a lot of lol moments in this story that helped me through the angsty parts.
The friendship in this series was absolutely heartwarming. These ladies are there for each other through everything providing a shoulder to cry on, or snark when it’s needed. This truly was a fantastic ending to the journey.
