If I Only Knew
From New York Times bestseller, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming and sexy standalone romance novel.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 . . .

    5 stars!!! 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! Danielle is a widow. In a surprising tragedy, she lost her husband and her children lost their father. Adjusting to life without him has not been easy for any of them. Danielle is surviving. She is doing the best she can for her and her kids. She's working, spending time with them, trying to keep her teenage daughter in line, and that's about it. She 5 stars!!! 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! Danielle is a widow. In a surprising tragedy, she lost her husband and her children lost their father. Adjusting to life without him has not been easy for any of them. Danielle is surviving. She is doing the best she can for her and her kids. She's working, spending time with them, trying to keep her teenage daughter in line, and that's about it. She recently got a promotion at work, which is great. Love is the last thing on her mind. Milo is in America to take back what is rightfully his. A head position in his brother's company. The position Danielle is now in, to be exact. At first, Milo seems like a bit of a spoiled brat. But he's not, not anymore anyway. When he first meets Dani, he is struck by her beauty, but knows he can't go anywhere with it. Getting his job back has to be his priority. This book is a work-place romance and has a bit of that enemies to lovers troupe we all love so much. I loved watching Dani and Milo work together and get to know each other more. Seeing Dani come out of her self and her grief and realize maybe she can love again. Seeing Milo realize there are more important things out there than his job and being willing to sacrifice anything and everything for Dani. It was a truly beautiful thing. The group of friends in these books... they're amazing! I love all of the girls, but I think Dani and Kristin are the two that are most relate-able to me so I was really happy to get this book. Dani has a lot of strength. She's a great mom and a fabulous heroine. And I adored Milo. I mean... swoon. He was the best. And listening to his chapters on this audio book with that accent... sigh. Corinne did an incredible job with If I Only Knew. It was heartwarming, steamy, passionate, intense, and emotional. The writing was great as always, and listening to the audio was amazing. If you love audio books, be sure to pick this one up!

    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 If I Only Knew is my first book by Corinne Michaels.

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 Danielle. I loved their hate to love relationship. I loved Milo's sense of humor. I loved Danielle's strength after a horrific tragedy. I loved everything about them including the fact that they were a little more relatable to me as a woman closer to 40 than the early to mid twenties of the couples I'm usually presented with in romance books. Danielle knew about the ups and downs of marriage even if Milo was just really learning about relationships. And Danielle understood the daily joys and headaches that come along with parenthood. Again, there was quite a bit about this book I could really connect with. This book made me laugh and tear up and just get that happy feeling once it was all over. The narrators did an amazing job. These are two voices I will be looking for in future listens because I know that I'm going to enjoy the way they tell a story. And Corinne Michaels is an author I absolutely have to read more of to experience what I have clearly been missing out on.

    “If I only knew the man who wanted to ruin me would end up being the man who put me back together, I would’ve never fought it to begin with.” 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 “If I only knew the man who wanted to ruin me would end up being the man who put me back together, I would’ve never fought it to begin with.” 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 vividly riveting and incredibly good.
 “Why do you always say the perfect thing?”“Because you’re the perfect woman for me. Our hearts aren’t two beating as one. They’re the same heart that finally found its rhythm.” I loved Milo Huxley. It was so gratifying to finally see his true colors. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from him, knowing what I did after reading Not Until You. But after listening to this, I’m a complete goner. He stripped down his walls, peeled off his layers, and bared his heart and soul for all of us. He definitely proved that he was so much more than just the younger, happy-go-lucky brother of Callum’s who didn’t have a care in the world. He might’ve not been looking for love or a relationship or anything more than just random hookups, but he didn’t see Danielle coming either. Or how much he’d be taken by her so quickly and fervently—baggage and all. “I see you. I wish I didn’t sometimes. You can continue to push back, and that’s fine, but I’ve been dealing with people doing it to me my entire life, Danielle. I’ve gotten bloody good at fighting back and I’ll fight for you.” Danielle Bergen is the last in this amazing group of friends to get her own book, and it was damn worth every single second of the wait. Recently becoming a widow with two kids, Danni’s trying to get back on her feet and still give them the life they deserve. This woman was like a warrior princess. I can’t even imagine having to handle your rebelling teenage daughter alone, along with the most adorable, superhero-loving five-year old kid. But with the help of her friends, Danni was able to get back up, get a better job, and even meet a man whom she never expected to embrace her little family the way he did in the process. She was fierce and badass, and she deserves the life and happy ever after she finally got with Milo. I wanted, more than anything, to be loved so deeply that it gave me life. And I must say, Parker—Danni’s five-year old son—is the absolute sweetest! I just want to snatch him up and keep him for myself. I loved the sheer innocence he has, but at the same time, he’s so deeply connected and in tune with his mom. It was just so heart-melting and endearing to witness! “No one in this tribe walks alone.” 
If you want to laugh out loud and be entertained by the best squad of friends you’ll ever read about… If you want to fall head over heels, swoon your heart out, and be filled to the brim with spine-tingling feels… then I highly recommend you read this. If I Only Knew was definitely a heart-fluttering, soul-filling must read that will leave you begging and craving for more. Another phenomenal read from Corinne Michaels!Follow me on: Instagram • Facebook • Twitter

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 books in order, I would definitely recommend it. Danielle’s world was upended when her husband was tragically killed. Now raising their two children on her own, she is trying to balance being a mother to an adorable five year old son and a hell-raising 16 year old daughter, supporting them through their grief, dealing with her own grief and gearing up for the upcoming trial of her husband’s murderer. On top of that, she’s just been given a promotion at work and is finally stretching her legs in the business world after being held back for so many years. It’s hectic, but she’s managing to keep her head above water – just. Milo Huxley is the brother of Callum from Not Until You. Wealthy and privileged, when we were first introduced to Milo, I thought he was an entitled, irresponsible douche, and we get to see a bit of his spoiled nature in this book when he arrives in the US from England to claim back the job that he believes is his – the very job that Danielle has just been given. And when his brother (and CEO of the company) gives him a job as Danielle’s Assistant as payback for his slacking off, he makes it his mission to get rid of her so that he can take what he believes is his rightful place.It’s a fantastic dynamic from the start, and there’s a delicious enemies-to-lovers vibe as Danielle and Milo battle it out. Begrudgingly, they do acknowledge each other’s skills and they work well together, but it’s not until Milo sees Danielle in a vulnerable moment and he is there to support her, that things begin to change. A friendship forms that very quickly becomes more as they naturally and unexpectedly develop feelings for each other, and then it’s all on! “I’m trying so hard not to fall in love with you.”I look up, our eyes mirroring the same thing. “I’m trying, too.”“How are you doing so far?”“Not very good.”Milo smiles. “I’m not either.” OMG, the feels! The chemistry! The sexual tension! It’s all fantastic as Danielle and Milo laugh together, open up and share their lives and fall hard. Neither of them saw it coming, they didn’t want or expect it, but it happens and they don’t fight it, they just let it happen, and I loved every moment! It’s sweet, fun, sexy and swoony, and so freaking functional! There’s no game playing or unnecessary angst, and though they both have personal things to work through, they accept the changes that a relationship brings to their lives, realising exactly what it is they could have together and openly embracing it. “Give me your heart.”“You have it,” I reply. It’s a swoonfest that had me absolutely captivated, but life has more surprises in store for them, and they will be pushed to the limit as they figure it all out. I cried both sad and happy tears as it all played out, and I loved watching them deal with it all honestly and functionally as they fought for their much-deserved happy ending.I love these characters! Danielle is so real and relatable as a grieving widow and a mother trying to do the best for her family. She’s smart, fun and funny, and I loved her journey. And Milo absolutely stole my heart. The arrogant British hottie is full of charm, and his character progression throughout the story is just fantastic. He has a lot of growing up to do, but he proves to be an absolutely incredible romantic hero – supportive, loving, romantic and so freaking sexy. Shout out, too, to Danielle’s kids who bring so much the story, making me laugh and swoon all over again. The characters from the previous books all appear, in particular the girls, and I love this group of friends! They are loyal and supportive without fault, and their absolute honesty with each other is hilarious! They have such a fun dynamic, and seeing them together is a real treat.I listened to this as an audiobook and the narration is just fantastic! Sophie Eastlake and Shane East do a fantastic job bringing these characters to life – even including the English accent! Usually with an audiobook I’ll listen while driving or doing housework, with this one I also just sat there doing nothing but listening intently so that I didn’t miss a thing, and I finished it in a day. Definitely one I recommend listening to!So, so beautiful, I love this book so much and look forward to many rereads in the future.5 stars!

This author has the uncanny ability to make you tear up in one chapter and have you in a laughing fit the next. Be prepared to have your emotions go every which way because Corinne will make you work for that happily ever after that we all crave.I don’t know if you all are ready for the likes of Milo Huxley. He will charm you and exasperate you in the span of a single chapter. He truly is a great guy when the walls come down and you get to experience the bond that forms with our amazingly strong heroine. Danielle has been through hell and back and tragedy and experience has taught her to be strong, to be a rock for her children. It’s not always easy, as we get to see in many scenes in this fantastic book, but she does make it look like it. I absolutely ADORED Milo and Danielle together. They fed off of one another mentally, emotionally, and sexually, of course. It’s not always an easy road for these two, but Ms. Michaels doesn’t dissapoint with their happily ever after.I’m a HUGE fan of all things Corinne Michaels, but there was something about this book that was a cut above the rest. It has her beautiful brand of emotional storytelling, but the storyline and these characters hit me square in the chest. The feeling that I experienced throughtout this book was amazing and truly unforgettable.

They are fiercely loyal to one another, they speak the truth to one another, and they ferociously mettle in each other’s lives. They have the best banter and it is just very fun to read and be a part of these ladies lives. I absolutely love these 4 ladies. As Danielle and Milo work together and get to know one another, the sexual tension starts to climb and eventually skyrockets. But Danielle has lots on her plate.....her children, an angry teenager, a looming trial, her job, her grief, her friend’s concern for her and Milo, who has somehow given her hope once again.This a great enemies to lovers, office and second chance romance. It is beautifully written and is packed with lots of emotions. From crying to smiling, this book just made me feel good and I loved every word. I’m a little sad that this series is over but so happy that all these girlfriends found love and that they keep their friendships like family.Thank you Corinne Michaels for Heather, Kristen, Nicole and Danielle. Oh and I can’t forget all their yummy husbands too!! And also, the extra bonus epilogue was really nice......just an extra cherry on an already wonderful, fabulous delicious sundae.*advanced copy provided in exchange for an honest review*

She’s recently been promoted to a job that he considers his. To say their initial meeting didn’t go so well is an understatement. I was beyond humored by his antics. What I loved:Both main characters. They both made an impact. I’m not typically a lover of the heroines, but she spoke to me on an elemental level. She’s a mom, wife (widow), busy career woman, who is just trying to do the best to hold her family together. Her drive to care for her kids while also dealing with their shit entertained me so much. Especially her daughter! Fingers crossed my little stays as sweet as she is now. 🤣🤣Milo is a sweetheart! Though he didn’t initially start out that way. I thought he was a flake while reading the last book and never considered I’d love him this much. But alas, I fell hard. The secondary characters are my favorites. I love this ladies and their bond. As also, I just dig this authors writing. I love the way she sets up the story and she delivers on making me feel and thoroughly entertaining me throughout. Another amazing read! FLOVED!

Life was great, and then in the blink of an eye she goes from happily married with kids to single mom. It’s been almost two years since she lost her husband, and she’s still trying to find her place in this world. The only place she still felt in control was her job. She’d worked at Dovetail Enterprises for over a year now. She buried herself in work, and soon is offered a fabulous promotion as the Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Logistics.She’s excited for this amazing opportunity until she learns her boss’s brother has returned, and wants her job. She’s worked hard for this position, and has no plans to give it up. She would continue to prove herself and not back down. When she’s informed he will be her new assistant she’s not looking forward to babysitting a manchild. From what she’s heard he has a reputation for being the spoiled, selfish, irresponsible, reckless, entitled, flighty brother who refuses to grow up. This is not how she planned to start her new career. Milo Huxley thinks he can return to his previous position at Dovetail, and quickly learns it’s been filled by a beautiful, intelligent, extremely qualified woman named Danielle. He’s never felt good enough in his brothers eyes, and felt insignificant. He’s determined to prove his worth, while at the same time taking back the job that he felt was rightfully his. He has plans to destroy his rival, but soon she gets under his skin and is his one weakness. He looks forward to seeing her every day, even if it means taking orders from her. He can’t explain it, but he would sacrifice everything to make her his.Danielle is still learning how to exist again, and Milo is there for her when she needs someone. Her hot new British assistant drives her crazy, but she can’t think straight around him. He’s arrogant, spontaneous, and lives his life without rules, but that isn’t how she operates. She suddenly wants him, but is afraid. He gives her hope again, and makes her feel out of control with desire. He’s completely turned her world upside down, and what she’s feeling becomes impossible to deny. Will she be able to trust him with what’s left of her heart? -Milo is like the sun, you can’t help but want to be near him. -I’ve been kissed, but never like this. Never have I felt weightless and yet aware at the same time. No one has ever made my head swim or heart race like this. I crave more. This is a kiss that women dream of.-Milo makes my world brighter than its ever been. He tore down the old ideas of what love looked like and painted me something breathtaking.-“The moment we met, something inside of me was altered.” This was a fantastic, emotional standalone enemies to lovers office romance full of red hot chemistry and fabulous banter. Milo Huxley is swoony, sexy and absolutely irresistible! I really enjoyed this story about falling head over heels for the boss you’re supposed to be taking down. ***NOW AVAILABLE***https://amzn.to/2DF1cEg

Doing what’s right for them even if it causes you pain is the sacrifice you’ll make. I’ve spent my entire life looking for someone who would make me feel this way, and here you are, my darling.

The story has many subplots running that all work into the overarching romance, creating a truly flawless story of a family healing and finding peace with a brand new future. It is quintessential Corinne Michales romance, heartbreakingly beautifully and ending with hope and love and happiness.The narrators are fantastic! So fantastic! Milo’s accent is delicious. For me, with audiobooks, the narrators doing the other character’s voice is hit or miss for me, but these two nailed it! I love this book and series of stand-alones. Definite rereads. Definite need to have it on my shelf. Definite must read.****First Listened to it on audible, and then read an ARC***

I think she may actually use our turmoil for substance to keep her black heart beating.If I Only Knew (IIOK) is the fourth in a series of standalones that follow a group of friend and while each book can be read independently, I encourage you to read them all. These four gals are amazing and are all paired with equally amazing men. I've felt like after the prior three books, I've gotten to know Danielle - develop a little girl crush on her. And well, man-child Milo from the last book was a hero I just had to meet. There was something about him that just screamed, FIX ME, I'M BROKEN - WHY WON'T SOMEBODY LOVE ME?!?!?! Don't worry Milo, I'll love you.Danielle's world has been ripped apart, losing her husband, dealing with two kids (one who is taking out all her anger on her mom) and starting a new job. A job that Milo wants. But when he's put in his place and forced to be her assistant, his devilish plan to reclaim the VP title is put on the back burner as he watches her struggle with her loss and the landscape of her new life. I think what I loved the most about this particular story was that the angst wasn't driven by the characters. Danielle's life was enough. Milo and her were just so easy together, it was effortless. There were some amazingly funny parts to this story - I loved that that my emotions were all over the place. It made the experience feel all that more real. I am sad to say goodbye to these characters.

    I'm in awe of this story. If you have read this set of stand-alone books in this series, you know all about Danielle's life, children and heart break. Leave it to Milo to come in and change the way she thought her life would go. We know a little about Milo from Callum and Nicole's story, but not why he is the way he is. When he meets Danielle, his entire purpose changes. He truly is a perfect Brit, full of sarcasm and the ability to be there for her, even when she doesn't realize she needs him.

Trials and tribulations occur, throwing Danielle into a life changing stage, and the only place for Milo is to be there for her. As in most books, there are things that happen that puts a spin on their growing relationship. How will her children adjust to their mom dating? How will Danielle accept the fact that she's relying on Milo more than she should? Is this change worth all of the heart break she had endured in the past? Please read/listen to this book. It's a life changing moment for all involved. I voluntarily reviewed this from the author. I'm sad this is the end to the series, but so thankful I can read or listen to these awesome characters anytime I want. And if you love audiobooks, The narrators in this audio portion of the book are 100 percent on point. Perfect in every way.

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. Underneath, Danielle is struggling to survive as a single working parent after the sudden loss of her husband. She and Milo are broken in similar ways, that draw them to each other. I really cared for them both, and loved how their relationship unfolded and grew. This emotional story is loaded with sexual tension, smoking hot passion, and witty banter. Ms Michaels created a beautifully multifaceted story about real people who are interesting, fun, and easy to connect with.Narrators Sophie Eastlake, and Shane East gave a flawless performance with exquisite accents, and perfect timing and delivery. Eastlake expertly brought out all the turmoil in Danielle's life. I love how she made me experience all Danielle's excitement, concern, pain and passion. I was totally lost to East's smooth, rich, voice, and he had me totally swooning as he brought the conflicted but sexy Brit to life, helping to make Milo one of my very favorite heroes. This book is the perfect combination of everything I crave in a story. It’s sweet, witty, romantic, poignant, and steamy passion, all rolled into one breathtaking and amazing audio experience!

Going back to work wasn’t just necessary, it was exactly what she needed to push her toward having a life again. She just never expected her boss’s irresponsible younger brother to show up and want to fight for his job back, which was now her job. And she certainly didn’t expect to want him like she did. But, alas she did. And as far as Milo was concerned, there was nothing that could get in the way of getting his job back, except his feelings for Danni. I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH! My heart is still fluttering. It was such a feel-good love story. GAH!And of course the whole gang returns just as lovable as before <3

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 business, and Milo being a flirt. Yet as they work together and discover more things about each other, a smoldering attraction develops between them until it bursts into a happy flame! I listened to the audible version of this book and found it sweet, sultry, sassy and fun! I enjoyed getting sucked into their world led with the alternating voices of Sophie Eastlake and Shane East. Sophie doles out a solid performance that captures not only the headstrong yet vulnerable Danielle, but also the crazy antics of her friends and brooding teenage daughter. She also has a good “male voice” in narrating Milo’s dialogue- British accent and all! Shane East delivers another solid performance with his portrayal of Milo. Aside from the dreamy British accent, his dramatic reading brought life to the words, especially emphasizing moments of anger, lust, and love. I felt it all resonate in his tone. This is absolutely a great listen with an engaging storyline. Corinne Michaels is an author known to write a heartfelt story that delivers the FEELS, and this is no different. Definitely worth the read/listen! 4.5 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

    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!!
