Title:  Consolation (The Consolation Duet #1)  
Author:  Corinne Michaels
Publication Date: March 18th 2015
Plot:   Book One in the Consolation Duet

Liam wasn’t supposed to be my happily ever after.
He wasn’t even on my radar.

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.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via TRSOR PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

#Why did I do it?! Why?!

I should have known that by getting into a book series centering around the same couple that there would be a catch cliffhanger!! Gosh darnnit! *tears*

Consolation was a tear-jerking novel that left me speechless and in tatters.

Here, it chronicles the events following traumatic love, loss, guilt, and ultimate grief.

After losing the love of her life while serving overseas in the military, Natalie “Lee” feels her world crumbling around her.

Now faced with a newborn daughter and the overwhelming despair of anguish and heartache, Lee struggles to pick up the pieces and move on with her life.

But when fate enters Liam-- best friend of Lee’s deceased hubby, he invokes something in Lee that she felt long died with her husband in Afghanistan.

Can Liam shed light on Lee’s dreary life and mend her broken heart and sorrow? Is his and Lee's romance meant to be? Or is he merely just a figment of solace that will only cause more agony and destruction for himself and the girl he's slowly but surely falling in love with?

Read and you will find out!

As my first Corinne Michaels read, I was thoroughly impressed and taken aback by the honesty and realistic-ness of this plot novel.

Love does not happen over night and to see Lee and Liam battling out their doubts, feelings, and emotions was pretty brutal. But yet, it was the glue that helped mold and strengthen their relationship.

Consolation was an effortless wonder, even if I had not read the Belonging Duet series, depicting a slow-burning romance of friends to lovers and the ever-consuming testaments of faith, honor, loyalty, and survival.

There were times were I choked up, there were times were I was smiling like an idiot and wanting to slam the characters’ heads together; but most of all, it taught me the delicate nature and strength of the human spirit and what a second chance at life and love can do to you!

Loved it! ♥

“Oh, Chloe, if you’d like to come out, please wait until your Daddy gets back,” I insist, holding my belly as another Braxton Hicks contraction hits. I grip the dresser and try to breathe through it. It seems like they’re coming more frequently.
Once it passes, I try to finish what I came in here for. Aaron is away, but I want the nursery done so we can enjoy the next few weeks once he returns. I walk around what will be her room, putting a few more of the pretty pink dresses in the drawers. Aaron and I have fought about the vast array of pink things that are now strewn around the house—he hates it, I love it.
He insisted we paint her room in camouflage. Brown, green, and black camouflage for a girl? No. I almost sent myself into labor with that argument. I got home and he and Mark were drawing it out on the walls. I launched various household items at Mark while throwing him out of the house. My husband found out shortly after how much he could suffer by my hands. I may not be a SEAL, but you don’t mess with me either. In the end, I won with purple walls and the sheer netting around her white crib.
“Daddy’s going to love this room, Chloe. I can’t wait to see his face when he sees the pretty butterflies.” Needing to take another break, I sit in the rocking chair and rub my stomach. It soothes me knowing she’s in there. I can protect her—it’s my job. I love being pregnant and it’s a miracle we were able to conceive her. I’ve already told Aaron I want to try for another one as soon as she’s born. I close my eyes and sink, allowing the world to fade away.
