Overview

(Book 2 of 2 in the Belonging Duet)

I tried resisting him. I fought to ensure history wouldn't repeat itself. In the end, Jackson and I knew he would win. He broke down my walls, obliterated every excuse, and made me love him against all odds.

Then he shattered my heart into thousands of pieces.

I can't let him back in. It was hard enough surrendering my heart the first time. If he hurts me again, I'll never survive. No matter what he thinks, we're beholden to our past.

I have to agree with another review that said they loved the hero but not the herioine. Cat is immature at best. She is all over the place with her emotions and frankly like watching a fly buzzaround your head, annoying to say the least. She's so judgemental, never giving Jackson the benefit of the doubt or even willing to let him speak to her. For someone supposedly in love with this guy she is the epitome if selfish. Everything is about her and her previous relationship issues, which she is undoubtly the cause of. She's flakey to say the least and high maintinance is an understatement. Men usually run and dont look back from women like that. Its nit worth the headache. As a woman I would run from an aquaintance like that!

Corinne Michaels delivers laughter, love, and tears with a story that will stay with you many days, weeks, and months down the road. Jackson Cole is a complex man. He has a lot of secrets and has been through hell and back during his military career and while running his private security business. He has lost several friends and fellow soldiers and blames himself for it. When his best friend Aaron dies Jackson loses his mind and has to go bring him home. Jackson pushes Catherine away just as she finally opened herself up to love again. He walks away and does it in the name of protecting her and himself from heartbreak. This part of the book nearly destroyed me. I was sobbing like a baby. No this can’t be happening and just when you feel like you can breathe again tragedy strikes and it is Jackson this time who is fighting for his life. This is only one bump in the road though. This story takes another plot twist that rips the rug out from under you. My head was spinning. Corinne shows us what it is like to have the love you need from very close friends when you feel like your world has come to an end and you are trying to pick up the pieces. Gretchen and Ashton become Catherine’s rock and between the tears Corinne has me laughing at the girls silly antics and their made up vocabulary with words like “twunt”. That is so something that my two best friends and I would have made up. The bond between Catherine, Ashton, and Gretchen reminded me of my two best friends of 20+ years and what life was like way back when before kids and messy divorces and perhaps that is why I connected so much with this story. I really enjoyed the flip-flop of this story as well. Normally the female heroine leaves everything behind to run off into the sunset with the alpha male hero. Not this time. Corinne does something a little different and I have to say that the conclusion of Catherine and Jackson’s story was quite refreshing. I also adored the epilogue. You really get to see Catherine and Jackson and their witty banter years down the road along with Catherine’s antics to drive Jackson crazy. I loved their happily ever after. Once again I reiterate I was engrossed in Beloved and Beholden for four days from the minute the kids went to bed until at least midnight each night. I had to see what was going to happen next. The chemistry was scorching hot between Catherine and Jackson and they had so many hurdles to jump and obstacles to overcome that I could not put these books down until I literally passed our from exhaustion. Thanks again for letting me ready your stories Corinne. I am really looking forward to reading whatever you have in store for us next.

Definitely a must read! I couldn't put it down from the moment I started the first book. I actually even took my nook with me to work to read on my lunch break, which is such a tease. But I loved Jackson and Catherine's story. I loved the epilogue as it was how I pictured they would be. I most definitely recommend this two book series. I will be reading Marks story next. Followed by Natalie's.

This is a fabulous and beautiful duet series! Ms. Michaels was a new to me author when I started Beloved. I read many great reviews about her debut book so I had to try it and I'm so glad I did! This series features Catherine, a smart, beautiful, strong woman who has trust issues when it comes to men and Jackson a sexy former Navy SEAL. In Beloved, Jackson has hired Catherine to be his publicist for one of his companies and they have instant chemistry. Jackson is so patient and caring with Catherine and I like that it is a slow build to their relationship giving them a strong foundation. There are some great secondary characters that add depth along with some twists & turns in the plot that keep you on the edge of your seat! You are very smart to purchase this as a boxset because after how Beloved ends you will want, no need to immediately start reading Beholden to see what happens next!! In Beholden, we learn more about Jackson and his demons and how fiercely Kate fights for him. It is a perfect and beautiful progression to their love story. I can't wait to read what Ms. Michaels has in store for us next!

I loved it! I didn't want to lay it down. I kept this with me and read it through the red lights and the drive through at Starbucks! I didn't want their story to end!

I am an avid reader but there are not a ton of books that I finish and feel like I HAVE to read the next in the series NOW, or I immediately look for more from the same author, but this did both. I can say I enjoyed every page and can't wait for more.

Great story, but a lot of unnecessary foul language.

This started out well enough but it drug on and on. It would have been better if it had been shorter . I hate it when a book drags on with no real purpose.
