A Moment for Us Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
New York Times best-selling author Corinne Michaels returns to Willow Creek Valley in this stunning surprise baby/unrequited love romance.
I was totally over Joshua Parkerson.
Sure, I had a teenage crush on him way back when - and everyone knew it - but he never saw me as anything but his little brother's friend, the girl who got tongue-tied any time he walked into a room.
I had long ago accepted the fact that his strong arms would never hold me, his lush lips would never claim mine, and his blue eyes would never see me as anything more than who I used to be.
But now he's back in Willow Creek Valley, and there's a brand-new spark between us - even he can't fight it. Our chemistry is explosive, and every time we're together, I swear I can feel the earth shake.
It doesn't mean anything...how could it? I'm over him.
Until I see that little pink plus sign, and the earth stops turning completely.
Now I want it all again, a life with him. But Joshua built walls around his heart for a reason, and his secrets haunt him.
How can I show him that the ghosts of his past don't have to define our new family's future?

Love, loss and everything in between, this romance story was just as beautiful as it was heartbreaking. Josh and Delia’s romance had that instant chemistry and connection that made this book in the series extremely sexy and steamy, taking the heat up a notch. But along with the heat, there was a lot of heartache and pain to overcome for these two to get their happily ever after. The emotional twists were devastating but created the opportunity for healing and trust and love to finally thrive. I loved that when a surprise pregnancy was thrown at them, they handled it with maturity, even if it was something neither was ready for.
“Her love makes me think there’s hope, and that’s something I haven’t experienced in years. Everything seems possible when I look at her.”
Delia had held onto to her love for Josh for years, and when the opportunity to fall in bed together arose, she took her chance knowing it might be all she’d ever have of him. It was clear that while Josh denied it, he definitely harbored strong feelings for Delia, he was just afraid to open his heart again to love. I ached so much over the pain from his past, I wanted to wrap him in my arms and just hold him and show him he was never at fault. Delia was so kind, loving and full of sass, she didn’t let Josh walk all over her, even if a wink from him could break her walls down in an instant. Their journey to love definitely tested their trust in each other but in the end they realized together was the best place to be. And THAT EPILOGUE, I need Oliver’s book now!!
The stories of Willow Creek Valley are stand-alones but for the best experience they definitely need to be read in order. I had to re-read a little to get me started for Josh and Delia’s story. 4.5 Stars for me!
But it doesn’t matter. Josh can’t take the chance. He's convinced he destroys everything he loves, and he won’t go there with someone as special as Delia. Until he does. And his self-fulfilling prophecy just might come true.
Oh, my heart! This book ruıned me. it shreďded my heart. Angstaholics, here's your next great read, but I’ll warn you now. Guard your heart, because I wasn’t sure mine would survive it. It's rąw, and messy, and devastating, and heart breaking. But somehow Delia and Josh's surviving everything they go through and coming out stronger together as a result just makes the ever after they bąttle and sląy demons for that much sweeter and rewarding.
This talented storyteller always delivers a stuņning, heartfelt story, and I love all the characters in this series, but Josh and Delia's story is so much more. You'll feel every emotion alongside these characters, and it's a deèp, complex, treacherous, gut-wrenching, heart-poųnding rıde! Exquisite, evocatıve, and unforgettable, this unparalleled romance is an absolute must read.
This is certainly not an easy love story by any means. We have a heroine who has been pining in unrequited feelings for a hero who is too mired in his own baggage to be open to love or relationships of any kind- even though he himself recognizes he too has feelings for the heroine. But just when she’s resolved to be over her feelings and move on, and unexpected moment of passion creates new complications in their dynamic. Feelings grow harder to contain, new dynamics between them are explored, and just when they both trick themselves into believing they’ve found an arrangement they both can be satisfied with (when in truth it would hurt them both), a surprise brings new depths and directions to their relationship.
Their story was so sweet and tender in places, frustrating at times as Josh refuses to confront his emotional holdbacks and as Delia compromises her needs just for a sliver of his heart, and deeply heartbreaking in others. Some of their challenges are really hard to read and experience, and gives me such empathy for those who have that kind of traumatic pain in real life. Their romance has endless emotional obstacles that they both feel guilt and hesitation over, but the beauty is that they finally learn how to lean into their love because of them. They find a way TO each other despite all their adversity, realizing that in the end, love is what heals and sustains, if only you have the bravery to give into it and love yourself enough to accept it.
Another moving and tender story from Corrine Michaels- looking forward to Oliver’s story and more from this amazing series!

Delia has loved Josh for years, but Josh is closed off and won't give in to commitment. After some hot, steamy fun leads to more, these two struggle to align.
Well written and left on a wondering note!

After catching glimpses of Josh and Delia in the previous books in the series, NOTHING can prepare you for the angst and emotion throughout this UNFORGETTABLE story of lost love, the discovery of just how strong the human heart truly is and the journey of two souls that are truly MEANT to be together! Josh and Delia are some of the strongest characters that Ms. Michaels has written and Josh just may be the most broken (and one of THE most frustrating!)...but that just makes the way everything comes together in the end THAT much more satisfying!
Corinne Michaels is an absolutely EVIL genius who COMPLETELY SHATTERS your heart and emotions, only to put it back together again in the most beautiful, heartmending ways! A Moment for Us is not just one of my TOP READS of 2021, it's one of my top reads from Corinne Michaels! And that's saying a LOT!!!
