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.
Consolation was the third novel that I’ve read by Corinne Michaels and my favorite one so far. I loved her writing style and the storyline and characters she created. I definitely enjoyed Consolation a lot more than Beloved and Beholden, the first two books in the Salvation series, and I’m looking forward to reading more about Liam and Natalie in Conviction.
Liam and Natalie were excellent and I really enjoyed reading the first part of their story. I loved their personalities and chemistry together, and I was immediately intrigued by their story from page one. I enjoyed how their relationship progressed from friends to lovers, although I thought they fell in love a little fast. However, Liam and Natalie had known each other and been friends for nine years, so I guess it made sense. It didn’t bother me and I thought they were a perfect match for one another. I loved their interactions and banter with each other, and I was definitely rooting for them to make it as a couple. Most of the secondary characters were wonderful as well, and I loved seeing several from Beloved and Beholden make an appearance. Natalie’s baby daughter Aarabelle was so freaking adorable, and I loved her interactions with Liam. It was quite entertaining and never failed to make me smile.
Corinne Michaels definitely knows how to shake things up and make them interesting. There were plenty of surprising twists and turns in Consolation that I don’t think you’ll see coming. I certainly didn’t and was shocked quite a few times throughout, especially on the last page. I truly enjoyed reading every moment, both the good and the bad, of the first part of Liam and Natalie’s story, and after that unbelievable cliffhanger (which I knew was going to happen), I can’t wait to start reading Conviction.
Consolation was an amazing start to Liam and Natalie’s duet, and I loved reading every single page. It was very entertaining and certainly had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. There were a lot of shocking and surprising events that took place, and it definitely left me craving for more. Corinne Michaels is an extremely talented author, and although her stories have their fair share of drama and emotional upheaval, I can’t wait to read more of them, especially the rest of the Salvation series!
FIVE “Liam & Natalie” STARS!
