About this ebook

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 . . .

Corinne Michaels is one of my auto-buy authors. I will read anything and everything she publishes. I absolutely love the books she writes and none have been below a 4-star rating! Some became favorites for me! I definitely think If I Only Knew is now one of those favorite books. It's been so long since I read We Own Tonight and One Last Time (connected to If I Only Knew as well as previous, Not Until You), that it's hard to say which is my favorite... But I can say without a doubt, that this is definitely a favorite. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it honestly. We met Milo in his brother's story, Not Until You and I'll be honest and say I wasn't really crazy about him. But of course, it's hard to judge a character when we don't have their side of the story. And let me tell you, once I got his side of the story and really got to see his character develop, I fell for him! I absolutely loved Milo! Danielle has always been an interesting character for me since the beginning. I just had this feeling that her relationship with her late husband wasn't going to last. It just didn't seem to be a lasting relationship. Danielle is trying to pick up the pieces and trying to move on with life with her 2 kids. Hands down, I highly recommend you read this book! However, I recommend reading in order because you will see the previous characters and it might spoil their story for you. 1: We Own Tonight 2: One Last Time 3: Not Until You 4: If I Only Knew

Not only has Corinne Michaels given us another male you want to strangle as you hug him, she provides leading ladies who make up the tribe of your dreams. The story of Danielle and Milo is one makes you believe in second chances, and not want to give up on love. Danielle is a strong-willed female, and Milo is an infuriatingly loveable male, and together they bring you a heart-felt story that makes you want to start over as soon as it's finished. IIOK is the fourth and final installment of CM's Second Chance series. She brings you four amazing women and four dream worthy males in four amazing stories that bring to life all the feels great stories should contain. Through the tears, laughter, joy, and pain, you witness and feel aspects of everyday life through the eyes of four women in the most relatable way. While I'm sad to see these ladies' stories come to an end, I'm glad to have experienced a part of their lives.

~ 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. If you love and enjoy stories that ~ Will touch your heart ~ You can relate to in different levels ~ Have fun banter ~ Have a strong smart hardworking woman with a big heart ~ Include a Sexy, Cocky, Sweet and off the chain Wonderful man...THEN this story is for you. I've read all the other stories in this series and this author is amazing as they have all been soo good. I've loved them BUT I can't help and feel that this is the cherry on top. The closer. Saved the best for last. I cannot love this more. Danielle and Milo together stole my heart
