Contemporary RomanceNew AdultSweet Love



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 received an ARC of this book from TRSOR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

This book is just heartbreaking. I mean, come on, who enjoys reading about a heroine who loses her husband, the love of her life, while she’s pregnant? Me. Apparently. I enjoyed it not for sadistic reasons but becaus the author did such an amazing job at making readers feel the same as the heroine, lost, broken, sad.

As the story went on, we also read about hope and second chances. We know that we all eventually lose someone, and we can only try to move and and live. It is not easy at all. But it’s possible. Corinne Michaels artfully shows us a young widow’s journey from loss, heartbreak, betrayal, love, and forgiveness.

You will want to read the second book right away after you finish this book. Unfortunately, we still have to wait for me. I can hardly wait for Conviction to come out, so I can review it too and finally find out what’s in store for Natalie And Liam.


Corinne 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.
