Book One in the Consolation Duet

Liam wasn’t supposed to be my happily ever after.
He wasn’t even on my radar.
He was my husband’s best friend—forbidden.

But my husband is dead and I’m alone. I ache for him and I reach for Liam.

One night with Liam changed everything. Now I have to decide if I truly love him or if he’s just the consolation prize.

    This is a MUST read. I have to say, I was really disappointed when the story line changed and Aaron cheated. There is nothing wrong with losing a husband who is a hero and letting yourself fall in love again. I was afraid I would not like the book as I would never judge a window of an American hero for finding love again, but I could barely put the book down. This book grabbed me from the start, and it kept me there the whole time...laughter, tears, a little anger, compassion, sympathy...I cannot wait to read Conviction. Kuddos...this author definitely knows how to capture her audience. I read A LOT...I will read almost anything, but every now and again I come across a book that is so good, it takes me to a different place. Wherever you get your inspiration, I hope it continues. People often disregard romance as a woman’s read, but I can actually visualize this story as a great movie.

  • WOW, Just Wow!

    By Evelness
    I took a chance reading this book; as the daughter of a Naval Academy Graduate who recently buried her father at Arlington National Cemetery, A LOT of aspects of this book had me bawling my eyes out. As a mother, I felt Lee’s misery. As a wife, I felt her frustration and later her betrayal. I LOVE LIAM! We need more men like Liam in our world! Could NOT put it down and I’m diving into the next book NOW. Awesome stories.
  • I hate continuation books

    By johnny-cs
    I would give this book a five star except that it makes you buy the next book to see what happens which really irritates me, so I won’t buy the next book.
  • Hits the Feels, Then a Good Read

    By DM0402
    This one I downloaded on a whim. Read it. The beginning will hit you in the feels. Eventually you do feel bad for Natalie on a different level. Liam is a good guy and steps up to help out his best friend’s widow. However, there are parts that I wish had been edited differently, as their characters slip a bit and some of the dialogue could have been improved to stay true to their characters. The second book definitely has parts I’d love to edit and re-write, but that is the second book to this two-part story and not this one. I did like the banter between the characters, especially the guys. All in all, I have read all the books in this series and am looking forward to Ashton’s story. Would I recommend? Sure. Definite easy read (with the initial blow) and a good story. My biggest gripe is the baby’s name. Reminds me of Renesmee. Just no. I get why she names the child the name she chooses, but I think it is cringeworthy. If anything, there is the feminine name of the male name she incorporated.
  • You will be up all night!

    By Coachwife27
    First, I already knew I loved Corinne’s writing with her first two books. But these two OMG!!!! My heart ached for Natalie and what she had to endure. Then Liam shows up and HOLY HELL, I was up all night! I couldn't put it down. That ending. My heart was ripped out, stopped on and I couldn't get a hold of myself. I went right into the next one. This book will not disappoint you. You will fall madly in love with Natalie and Liam and their story.
  • The Salvation Series

    By Wanda K McD
    I cannot believe how invested I am in these books! Although, I do have to say that the first two books had me squalling like a baby. I keep holding my breath to see what’s going to happen next, and yet again you have thrown such a curveball at the end of Book 3. Love love love these books. Now, to start book 4.

    This is an awesome military based love story that goes wrong, love helps to rebuild the love only to have it doubly destroyed again. It will take a lot of love and trust to work out all the problems. If you like military stories you will like this one. LaMar
