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.

I lift my head and press my lips against his. His hand cradles my cheek and he holds me as we kiss. I grab his neck and feel the weightlessness from letting a little part of myself go. He kisses me adoringly and cautiously, allowing me to lead but still commanding me. I lose myself a little more as I moan when his hand presses against the small of my back.
“Let go,” he says against my mouth. “Let me take it for you.”
Before I can say anything, his mouth is on mine again. Our tongues thrash against each other as the kiss becomes hungry. He pulls me close so there’s no space between us. The low sound resonates through his chest, sending shivers down my spine. It’s sexy, and before I know it, my hands are traveling to his chest. I pull his shirt out and my fingers trail up his chest. I want to feel his skin.
Liam breaks the kiss. “Natalie,” my name is both a plea and a request.
“Shhh,” I instruct him as I unbutton his shirt. “I want to feel your heart.”
My hands glide up and he trembles beneath my touch. We stand here with my fingers resting on his chest, feeling his heart beat beneath me. He’s alive and here with me. His hands stay at his sides as he once again lets me decide where I’m going with this.
“I want to touch you so bad,” he admits and his hand lifts then drops. “I’m fighting every muscle in my body right now.”
“Stop fighting,” I say without thinking.

OH HELL!!  OMG!!  I can't even form words...this book was PHENOMENAL!  I mean seriously I was crying right from the first chapter.   This book broke me.  It just opens your heart up, squeezes it, twists it, stomps on it, and then does it all over again in the next chapter!   I don't even know what to write as I'm just so speechless over this whole story.  I need the second book now...like right NOW!   So I will try to find the right words to express how AMAZING this is without giving away too much! 

Natalie has the perfect life or at least it seems that way.  She's married the man of her dreams, has a baby on the way and she no longer has to worry about her husbands career anymore.  Her husband Aaron has just retired from the Navy.  With a family on the way it was the perfect time for him to get out of the Seals and work in the private sector.   But one day Natalie's life is turned upside down.  It is shattered and she's left all alone.  I literally felt her pain...it was gut wrenching and heart stopping.   

My life wasn't supposed to be like this.  I had a loving husband, a baby on the way, and a beautiful home.  In one second it was destroyed.  One knock on the door ripped my perfect world apart.  

He said he'd come back

He lied

How does she pick up the pieces?  She is left to raise their daughter alone and she's tired of everyone asking her how she is...she feels smothered.  She has a hole in her heart and she doesn't know how to get past it....will she find happiness again?  Will everyone leave her alone and let her suffer?  She needs someone or something to bring her out...who better than Aaron's best friend Liam.  

Liam is Aaron's best friend and also another Navy Seal.  He's gorgeous, sweet, protective....just an all-around good guy, he's perfect!!  He's struggling with Aaron being gone, but he made a promise to take care of Natalie.  He needs her just as much as she needs him.  Will they help each other get past the pain?  

She looks at me like I’m saving her. I wish she knew how much she was saving me.

The more they spend with each other they can't help, but be drawn to each other.  Friendship turns to love....love that!!

She aches for him but reaches for me, I refuse to be her consolation prize.

I don't want to give too much away, but I will say Natalie keeps having bombs dropped on her and she is probably the strongest character I have ever read.  I love her strength and her attitude, fantastic character.  Liam is my hero.  He's one I want fighting for me.  He is the perfect companion for Natalie.  They both need each other in their own ways and too see it play out is beautiful.  

This is my first Corinne Michaels book.  I have her Belonging Series, but I have yet to read it.  It has been moved up to my top five books that need to be read now.  I'm in love with this woman based on this book, like seriously Phenomenal!!  The writing was emotional, beautiful, and breathtaking.  The whole story was flawless and it felt absolutely real.  I fell head over heels for Natalie and Liam.  I've been told with Corinne's writing to expect the unexpected and she definitely hits that on the head. I was an emotional wreck for a few days trying to get past this book...damn!  I highly recommend this book to everyone, it's a must read!  5 Plus Mesmerizing Stars!!

Displaying corrinne bio.jpgCorinne Michaels is an emotional, witty, sarcastic, and fun loving mom of two beautiful children. She’s happily married to the man of her dreams and is a former Navy wife. After spending months away from her husband while he was deployed, reading and writing was her escape from the loneliness.

Both her maternal and paternal grandmothers were librarians, which only intensified her love of reading. After years of writing short stories, she couldn’t ignore the call to finish her debut novel, Beloved. Her alpha Navy SEALs are broken, beautiful, and will steal your heart.
