Consolation is a book that will stay with me for a long time. If I could rate it with ten stars I would. I actually struggled with the idea of writing this review. I was/am filled with angst writing a review for Corinne Michaels' latest book. The reason? Corinne's writing, characters, and storyline are so well written and captivating, that I am afraid I can't write a review that will do it justice, yes, the book is that good! The story consumed me as I read it. It entranced me with pages filled with beautifully written words expressing loss, heartbreak, sorrow, betrayal, friendship, love and forgiveness. It also steamed up the screen with loving and hot sex scenes. The author knows how to craft it all with her talent. It became a fiber of my being, part of my blood, broke my heart, filled my heart with love, lifted my spirits and broke my heart again in the end. This journey is a tribute to the author's incredible writing style and ability! I love when I read a book comes and it grabs me with such force that it makes me feel, that the scenes make the story palpable. When the author has written words capable of making me happy, sad and heartbroken. When it makes me cry, laugh, and smile. When I love and hate the characters and feel for them, about them and hope for them. When I feel like I am there with them, that I know them, then I know the author has successfully woven words that have created a magical web that transports me into book lover's heaven. I found myself so thoroughly transported, into the world that is Natalie and Liam, that the line between reality and fiction became blurred through tears, smiles and swooning (yes, Liam is swoon worthy!) I want to review the story, without giving spoilers, since I don't want to ruin anyone else's magical journey through this exceptional book. Natalie, Lee, is a woman who was widowed when she was pregnant with her daughter. Her heart breaks that Aaron will never meet or know his daughter or she him. She misses Aaron and wonders what could have been. She is mad at him for not keeping his promise to make it home safely. Can she take another chance with her heart? Does she have any love left in her heart and soul for a man or does it all belong to a ghost? She fears what falling for another SEAL could mean and if she could survive him also not making it home. Does she have a choice or does her heart know what her brain won't admit? Liam is her late husband's best friend. Liam is also mourning Aaron's death and wants to be there to help Natalie navigate life without Aaron. They don't plan on caring about each other. They feel their love is forbidden and a betrayal to Aaron's memory. They can't help that the lines between friendship and lovers keep blurring. He knows he can't compete with a ghost and doesn't want to be her Consolation prize. Consolation has all that I mentioned and so much more. It left me with a book hangover and anxiously awaiting Conviction to know how Lee and Liam's story plays out. I am sure it will be amazing due to the writer's extreme talent of crafting, developing, conveying and delivering her characters, setting and storyline so exceptionally well. This is a must read book!

I love Liam. Great sense of humor in this story. Again, I'm so glad the second book was waiting. Sure hope it's not long until the next pair. Wonderful love story and steamy sex.
