New York Times Bestselling 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?

Josh and Delia ❤️❤️This book!!! So many feels!! Author, Corinne Michaels, knows how to bring the angst. A Moment for Us is book 3 of the Willow Creek Valley series. I was not fully prepared for the events that take place in this book but was in awe of how well Michaels handled them. *Warning* Josh and Delia's story, for the most part, feels like a light read, until Michaels takes your heart, pulls it into your throat, and then basically rips it to shreds. Delia has been in love with Josh for most of her life, but Josh has kept her firmly in the sisterish/friend zone until suddenly that changes. The ups and downs that these two characters experience definitely makes their HEA all the sweeter and had me thanking Michaels for sharing their journey..Score: 5/5
Angsty perfection that had me screaming and swooningA Moment for Us is angsty perfection that had me screaming and swooning all at the same time. Delia and Josh aren’t perfect, but they are perfect for each other. Josh is a beautifully broken man and Delia is the one with the power to remind him their is life after loss. You need to read this book for the car, the cake, the scanners, the appointment and the flowers alone. This story may be full of heartache, but it’s also brimming with hope, forgiveness, resiliency and so much love. Life is full of moments that change you forever, it’s what you do with those moments that count! Tracey, Life Reads With Friends Book Blog.Score: 5/5

Perfection!!!What can I say, this book was PHENOMENAL! Corinne Michaels is the queen of angsty small town, the way she grasps us and throws us into these stories is so amazing. A Moment For Us I knew was going to make me cry like never before, and it sure did. Josh and Delia's story isn't an easy and happy one, it's one with bumps on the road that make the ride even more rewarding at the end. If you have read the first two books in this series, you know Delia has crushed on Josh for years, unfortunately, Josh has never seen her as anything more than a friend. Josh is the strong brother, the one who wants to protect and has felt and seen everything. He doesn't believe in marriage or having a family. But when things get tough, and feeling become hard to hide, lines get crossed and unable to ignore. Delia and Josh brought ALL THE FEELS. This book was unputdownable, and it truly deserves so much more than 5 stars. Corinne Michaels take us in an emotional ride, one you won't forget for a while. But the ending!!!! I am so ready for Oliver's book!!!!! My man is finally coming!!!.Score: 5/5
Loved it! Such a great read!A Moment for Us by Corinne Michaels brings us Josh and Delia’s story and I was all here for it. Though technically you can read this book as a standalone, as each book in the Willow Creek Valley series is about a different interconnected couple, I highly recommend reading in order to really benefit from the stories told. Delia has always loved Josh, but he never saw her in that way, right? Josh has been through so much and it seems easier to keep others at a distance. Delia is beautiful, caring, and easygoing. He has avoided anything with Delia for years, but their chemistry and connection is undeniable. What happens when he can no longer stay away? Can they find a way to each other before it is too late? I absolutely loved A Moment for Us by Corinne Michaels. The story was emotional, touching and totally captivated me. Loved it! Happy reading!.Score: 5/5
Heartbreakingly Beautiful!Michaels once again took me on an emotional journey built with so many layers, and I couldn't help but to keep coming back for more. I mean she literally took my heart through a meat grinder on more than one occasion, and I KEPT COMING BACK FOR MORE! Why you ask? Because A Moment For Us is a beautifully written book, with HUGE doses of reality, that left me feeling alive because of ALL the emotions. It was a reminder that if you're feeling things, YOU ARE ALIVE even when it hurts. A Moment For Us. This title. The way it was woven into the storyline. I was living this story as I was reading. I was Delia, and at times I was the complex Josh. I lived and breathed these characters. Michaels made it so easy with the originality, depth and the development, but lets also not forget the complexity. She may have broken me, yes there were tears, okay more like a freaking puddle of tears, but she put me back together again. She glued the pieces of my heart back together enough to know some things are unforgettable, but enough to be able to heal and move on again. This story and these characters have left an imprint on my heart that will forever remain. Usually, I prefer to give a more in-depth (spoiler free) book review, but this time I feel like less is more. I could say this, I could say that but I know no matter what I say, you would not only have a better understanding of these characters and their why's and how's, but you could enjoy this book on another level, going in blind will only make you value and appreciate Delia and Josh's story from beginning to end. Let's face it, you can only heal if you start at the beginning, and healing is how we move forward with the future. **I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.Score: 5/5
EhhhI have loved the other stories in this series, but Josh annoyed me. The first 1,000 pages were the same story on repeat and it got old. Also didn’t appreciate the cliff hanger…...Score: 2/5
5 gut-wrenching stars!“To love the risks, the rewards, the possibilities and the failures we'll endure. Nothing in life is perfect. Loss is inevitable, but I'm right here." Corinne has done it again. She's punched into my chest, pulled out my still-beating heart, shredded it into pieces, and then stitched it back together and put it back in my chest like nothing ever happened... but the scars remain. Delia and Josh. Wow. This may have been my favorite book from the Willow Creek Valley series yet. (Which has me even more excited for Oliver's book!) Josh is the oldest of the Parkerson siblings, and because of their crappy parents growing up, he's really more of the father-figure. Delia was Alex's best friend growing up, and far too young for Josh. But that didn't mean she didn't have a life-long crush on him and that he didn't think she was special. They had one brief moment at her high-school graduation, and from then on Delia was head-over-heels in love with him, and Josh ran to New Orleans. Fast-forward to the present and all of the Parkerson's are back in town for good (sort-of, looking at you Alex), working on their new resort. This puts Josh back in Delia's path and just when she decides she is going to get over him, she falls again... this time in bed. Josh and Delia begin a friends with benefits thing, but Delia tries to push him away to protect her heart. Josh has sworn he will never love, never have family, never be a husband and never have kids. He has a ton of baggage from the past, and he just can't overcome it. He doesn't want to get hurt again, or in his mind, hurt anyone else ever again. Of course never say never, and nothing is as it seems. Josh and Delia go through the works together. She tries and tries to break down his walls, and then the unexpected happens. The two have to come together to do the right thing, and it causes them to both fall completely for one another. The only thing in their way? About ten luggage carts full of Josh's baggage. He unfortunately can't get out of his own way and as much as he wants to love Delia and be the man for her, he keeps tripping over a carry-on bag or a giant suitcase with wheels. He tries to do what he thinks is the right thing, but his head and his heart can't seem to align. What happens when fate intervenes? Is Josh strong enough? Is Delia? Can they be strong enough together? "I'd rather be afraid loving her than without her." If I had to nitpick something... I think Josh needed time. I think he needed time to go to work through all that baggage and himself first, before doing therapy with Delia. I think he needed time to overcome his demons. I understand why he did what he did (even if it isn't rational), but I do feel like Delia took him back a bit too quickly there at the end. At that point, he needed to prove himself with more action and the RV wasn't cutting it for me. Therapy, buddy, therapy. However, I did greatly appreciate in the epilogue that she was still keeping him on his toes a bit. I loved all of the supporting cast and seeing all of the familiar faces, and I love how Corinne never lets the other siblings and friends overshadow the couple the book is focusing on. However, that epilogue... boy oh boy I can't see what Oliver has waiting for us. Run, don't walk, to one-click this one today. And if you haven't go binge the series. It's worth it, I promise! As always, YMMV..Score: 5/5
Lots of emotions!This story was an emotional one. A beautiful story but so many emotions. Delia got a second chance at her childhood crush. She wants to fight it but the connection was inevitable. Then a surprise pregnancy throws a wrench into all their plans. I really enjoyed this story and the author did a great job getting to the bottom of all these emotions and struggles the characters went through. It became a main conflict to the story and that's where the story stayed. I wanted the story to branch out a little bit more. Overall, it was a very enjoyable story and you might need your tissues for this one..Score: 4/5

Can love heal a broken heartThe Parkerson men just keep getting better. What can I say about Josh? He is the one that wants to make all things right for those he loves. He's taken care of his brothers and sister and has always wanted to take care of Delia. Will his past allow him to open his heart to be loved? Will Delia be the one that can help him heal? Get ready to have all your emotions come out while reading Josh and Delia's story. Corinne draws you in with her writing so much so that you are there in Willow Creek Valley with the group. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at both Josh and Delia and in the end I didn't want their story to stop. Love that our favorite Willow Creek Valley characters make their appearances in A Moment for Us.

CaptivatingThis is the third book in the Willow Creek series. It’s unrequited love story. I was really looking forward to reading reading Josh and Delia story and to understand what was there story. These two were attracted to each other for over ten years but Josh wasn’t acting on his feelings. Now he is back in Willow Creek. The story was captivating and beautifully written. There were times I wanted someone to put some sense into Joshua for acting like dork but over all the story was absolutely phenomenal. Definitely a must read!.Score: 4/5

Delia has been hung up on Josh since she was a teenager and Josh always looked at Delia as his brothers best friend. But several years later, Josh comes back to town a broken man after experiencing personal tragedy that nobody is privy to and Delia gets her hopes up that this may be her chance. She soon finds out her feelings are one sided but she’ll take whatever she can get from Josh.

Full of passion and angstDelia and Josh have been on my wish list for the longest time. With the way these two interacted in the previous two books, I had a feeling their story would be full of drama, passion, angst, heartache and love. And yep, they did not let me down. The third book in the Willow Creek Valley series is a striking unrequited love romance with an accidental pregnancy twist that had me glued to my kindle. Corinne Michaels definitely knows how to play with all my feelings. The chemistry between Josh and Delia had been building for years. They are clearly meant to be and desperately in love with each other. However, the walls Josh built around his heart kept them apart causing Delia so much heartache. While I loved both characters, there were moments where I wanted to shake some sense into them. Their constant “I want you” “I can’t have you” became too much at times. I just wanted to scream: just be together already. I get that Josh had some hold ups stemming from a previous relationship but their back and forth made Delia look a tiny bit pathetic. She deserved better. For the most part, I really enjoyed A Moment for Us. If you’re looking for a good read with some excellent pinning, then this is for you. I can't wait to read Oliver’s books next. His HEA was a long time coming..Score: 4/5
Loved the storyI loved the story, though it was somewhat predictable. While Delia doesn’t fight her feelings, Josh fights his.

Emotional storyI just love Corinne Michaels books. They are gripping, emotional and tug at your heart. A Moment for Us has it all. It is emotional in so many ways. Josh and Delia are just meant to be. Life has been hard and Josh hasn’t dealt with his pain from the past. He doesn’t feel worthy of love and happiness. Delia has always loved Josh. Always wanted him to love, but happy to just be with him or was she fooling herself. The two get serious, but when tragedy strikes can they find the strength to be together or get torn apart? There was much angst throughout the story, and sadness. Delia is strong when she needs to be, and helps Josh to find strength in himself and finally start to heal. This is a beautiful, heart wrenching story that will take you on an emotional journey of love, loss and family. Another winner from Corinne!.Score: 4/5

Save Your Money on This OneThe main character (female) is so weak it’s ridiculous. Have some self respect. I’ve read other stories with a male main character similar to Josh and they did not make the woman so weak. This story could have been written with her stronger. I honestly have loved every book this author has written until this one. I have sobbed reading some of her books and read others multiple times. I had no empathy for the main characters because Delia was weak and Josh was wishy washy for more than half the book. I found my self skipping pages after the halfway point because it was so ridiculous and i just wanted to be done. Even the ending could have been better. It felt like the author just decided that was enough so she stopped writing. I only finished it because I paid for it..Score: 1/5

I loved this story, Josh is such a beautiful tortured soul, and Delia is the girl who has loved him he whole life. Through everything Delia will not let give up on the man she loves. Josh does have he own demons from his past to fight that have nothing to do with Delia. Over coming everything is what they need to do. Will they? There is heartbreak all over this story, some bad but if this makes any sense there is also beautiful heartbreak that make you cry cause just know feel everything Delia is feeling.

They decide on a “friends with benefits” arrangement, both kind of fooling themselves, when things take a sudden turn for them. And that is all I’m going to say! I’m not giving anything away! All I will say is that there were lots and lots of moments of fun, sheer bliss, heartache…you know, a Corinne Michaels novel lol.

After a cake fiasco they end up doing the dirty deed supposedly just once. Haha once turns into multiple times. Josh is dealing with heartache from his past that no one knows about. When the unexpected happens he opens up. This book draws you in and tugs at you. The Willow Creek Valley series is addictive but then again what series does Corinne Michaels put out not addictive.
