Book 2 of 2 in the Consolation Duet

I fell in love with Liam only to be left shattered into a million pieces. Again. The idea of being without him cripples me but the reality is, he’s gone.

He doesn’t understand and I can’t make him. 

If only he’d see the conviction behind my words—then he’d still be here.

    Corrine Michaels does it again, the ups and downs, the sadness, the humor(Mark's humor thru the book is so good!) I downloaded this after finishing Beloved and Beholden, also excellent books, emotionally my heart knew it wasn't ready to read Natalie's that I've finished this Duet AND the Bonus Scene WOW just WOW Corrine, absolutely love Liam. Looking forward to reading Mark and Quinn's stories. Great job, you are one of my favorite authors😘🙏🏻💕
  • Good Read

    I actually really liked this story. Yes, it was predictable, and the characters a little over the top, but I enjoyed it. I went and read books 1 & 2, and although I finished book 2, I gave that one a whopping 2 stars. Also left a review. What I really like about these is the friendly banter between the characters when they got together. Mark, Jackson, Liam, etc. There were parts that made me laugh and smile, which doesn’t happen often when I read. I real a lot of free books because I’m always in and out of airports for work, and so most of the time they are cringeworthy or poorly written. Book 3 started off hitting a little too close to home (military growing up, and married into it), but the transformation from Aaron being a stand up guy, to the *@&# side that he hid, I didn’t feel bad for him. My main dislike for this story is the baby’s name. Aarabelle?? Really?? I get where the author was going, but no. Just no. That, and pregnancies, what new couple is seriously excited to find out that they are pregnant when their relationship is still in the honeymoon phase or when it is unstable?? That’s a hard pass from me.
  • I fell hard for Liam

    By Coachwife27
    I will not be able to articulate how I truly felt reading this book. I fell more madly in love with Liam than I thought I could. I hated Aaron even more! But Natalie stood her ground, fought for Liam and it was beautiful! I loved seeing what these two had to endure to be together. Such a beautifully written book. I loved them and was so happy with the ending!!

    The minute I finished Consolation, I jumped right into Conviction. I could not wait to find out what happens between Liam and Natalie. Conviction is the conclusion to this duet and should be read after Consolation. The book picks up right where the first left off and let's just say the emotions are running extremely high for all the characters. A good portion of the book is bittersweet, as Natalie and Liam adjust and cope with the realities they face. Nothing is easy and there is heartbreak along the way, but I loved that their connection and feelings never faltered. I apologize for the vagueness of this review, but I really don't want to spoil anything for anyone. This is an emotional book that deals with life, death, grief, forgiveness, love, and what it means to be a family. The writing is poignant and moving throughout and will have you crying one minute and laughing the next. Although the duet could have been consolidated into one longer book, I think it was important to give all the relationships time to grow, mature, and heal. I really enjoyed taking this journey with Liam and Natalie and the last part of the book left my heart full and happy. Having Liam's POV for the epilogue was the icing on the cake. He's just as deliciously sexy and hilarious in this book as he was in Consolation. Swoon indeed ;) I loved this duet and this really was the perfect ending. It's not the true end though, since there is one more book in the series about Mark called Defenseless, and all the characters from the previous books appear. I truly enjoyed this love story and I can't wait to read more books by this author!
  • Fighting for love - 5+++++ stars

    A Review of Conviction by Corinne Michaels Fighting for love - 5+++++ stars The conclusion of the Consolation Duet is just as AMAZING as the first book in the series. The first book dealt with Aaron's death and Natalie doing her best to live life without him to finally falling in love with their best friend. Liam came back to Virginia when he was transferred to Aaron's old team and he wanted to help Natalie take care of all the things that needed to be done when a military spouse has passed. He pulled her out of the depression she was existing with and helped her realize that she still had a lot to live for. Especially her baby girl. He taught her how to laugh again and to see the good in life. Although both of them tried to ignore it, their friendship became even stronger until they both admited that they loved each other. Just as everything was falling in place for them, Liam has to go on a special mission, which causes her to worry constantly, but when he returns, he brings her something she never expected — her husband. This second book deals with all the fallout from being happy that Aaron is alive to realizing that she will have to hurt him even more when she chooses Liam. The last year without him gave her time and space to really look at their marriage and to see the problems that they were avoiding. There was sooooo much heart break in both of these books, but also soooo much love. The scenes with Liam's Mom broke my heart and in a way I truly felt for Aaron. Yes, he made mistakes — huge ones, but he is only human. I hope that he gets his own HEA somewhere down the line. Make sure you have a box of tissues handy, you will need them. **Honest review voluntarily provided from a Complimentary Copy**

    First, I usually don't leave reviews. Not for any particular reason, I just don't. But with this one, I had to! I have never had a book evoke so much emotion like this one, as well as Consolation. I've never cried, laughed, been as happy/angry or felt so strongly for the characters like I have with Consolation and Conviction. I have definitely found a new favorite author
