A wonderful book with a heart breaking ending for now. Can't wait to read the next book of the series about Catherine and Jackson to see what happens.

I had just finished reading The Consolation Duet books and I just had to go back and read The Belonging Duet. I absolutely loved The Consolation Duet books and when I discovered that The Belonging Duet was about Jackson and Catherine I was so excited to read them. Corinne Michaels knows how to tell a story. You fall in love with her characters from the first page. I loved this book but not so much the cliff-hanger. Luckily for me Beholden is already out. If you love a good romance, this book is for you.

I didn't know this book was in a series until the end. I was so upset I had to wait so long for the next book, but it was well worth the wait. I love Catherine and Ashton's relationship the most! I always love when two characters have such a strong friendship, it's almost better than the romance happening. Must READ!

This is a good book and I would recommend it, but there are a couple of things I didn't like. The first is the writing style. To begin I'm not crazy about first person and as I was reading I kept finding myself changing the tense of words and it started to bug me. I couldn't figure out what was wrong, then it dawned on me, it reads like a script. That was an issue for me because I'm NOT reading a script, I'm reading a novel. The second is that it ends with a cliffhanger. I don't like cliffhangers. This is clearly a part 1 and nowhere does it state that and it should. If I had known this before reading I would have waited until the whole thing was out, because in actuallity this is not a complete story, it's left unfinished. For me that is a problem. It's like paying for a pound of something and only getting half. You have to pay twice for something that should have been complete to begin with. And let's all face it the sequel will probably not be out for months and we'll forget a lot of what happened in this part.

Truly bogus cliffhanger. Story was awesome, then it cut off at the knees to tell you to read the next book to find out what happens.

Such as great read that will leave you breathless for more from these characters. I really enjoyed this read and hope that you will give it a chance as well. Very well written and flows so smoothly. Thanks Corinne Michaels for a great read! Catherine is a young lady that is done with men. She was left by her father when she was 9 and has never gotten over it. Her ex cheated on her with someone she thought was a friend so now she is just going to focus on her work and that is it. Catherine is trying to land some big jobs that can help her get promoted so she is focusing on those. Catherine is at the bar with her friends one night and she gets up to go to the bathroom when she runs right into a hunk and lands in Jackson Cole's lap. Now she is totally embarrassed and wants nothing more than to crawl under the table and hide. When Jackson and his buddies that he is with as for Catherine to have a drink with them, she quickly uses her engagement ring to get her out of the situation, even though she is not engaged anymore. There are sparks between her and Jackson but Catherine is not even going to acknowledge them and get out of there as soon as she can. Catherine is vying for a big job that could help her get promoted like she needs, the only thing is that when she gets to the meeting to pitch her ideas, her ex and his new girlfriend are there to pitch their ideas as well. Catherine gathers herself together and decides that she is not going to let them get to her, the only thing she doesn't know is that her ex has hacked into her files and stole all her ideas. How is Catherine going to overcome this now and at the last minute? When Catherine is chose to represent the company, she is summoned to meet with the boss that same night so she agrees to it because she said in the contract that she would be at their beck and call anytime. When she gets to the meeting, she is shocked to find out that Jackson is the man in charge of this company she is working for. This means that they are going to be working together a lot in the upcoming days, is she going to be able to do this? Of course, the sparks fly again immediately and Jackson is determined to not let her get away this time. He is going to make his feelings for Catherine known. Both Catherine and Jackson have their issues from the past that they are dealing with and that causes them to have their ups and downs but I believe brings them closer. This couple was lovely to read about and follow along with in their adventures. I am excited to read the next books in this series and see if we get more of Catherine and Jackson or if we get to meet some of their friends and follow their lives. Very well done Corinne Michaels. Great read!

Have you ever read a book that felt like a journey? That’s how I felt about this story. Catherine starts out at the second lowest point of her life and although it would be so easy to just throw in the towel and give in she doesn’t. She proves time and time again that she’s a fighter, that she deserves love and happiness, success and respect. Her growth was so admirable I wanted to high five her on more than one occasion. You have a woman left behind by the only two men that she has ever loved and still she’s ready to stand tall and put it all on the line again. Does she have doubts? Of course. Did I want to smack her? You bet. That’s what makes her relatable though. Queue the playlist because she’s only human! The dynamic between Cat and Ashton is so natural and fun that I found myself wishing that I could get in on one of their girls nights, naming calling and all. There is nothing like a great BFF in a story to set you straight and give you inappropriate advice about men and what you should use them for after you’ve gone through a bad breakup. These two had me rolling but also their love for each other warmed my heart. Ashton has been there for Cat when she had no one else. She’s her biffle and I love their love. Ok, now let’s get to the good stuff. An ex- Navy SEAL in a suit! Did you hear that? I said an ex- Navy SEAL IN. A. SUIT. That’s a double whammy folks. Jackson is what dreams are made of. He’s alpha without even trying and sexy as all hell. He has past, secrets that our girl Cat has no clue about. Demons that haunt him and have made him into the man that he is and their relationship is a learning curve for both of them. For once Cat is put first, treated with respect and is on cloud nine. Things couldn’t be and better until life gets in the way and pasts and presents collide rocking them both. I found myself wanting to shake them both at different times during this story and that’s ok because it’s all part of the journey. Corinne gave me the feels HARD and left me wishing and hoping, begging and crossing my fingers for them to come out on top and she did it all while making me laugh, cry, yell and stomp my feet and by melting my panties. THIS GIRLS GOOD. All of that and this is just the beginning. A debut novel that reads like it was written by someone that has been writing bestsellers for ages. Beloved is a solid 5+ star read for me, I dare you to disagree ;)

*I was given a gift of this book* I SO WISH I COULD GIVE THIS BOOK MORE THAN 5 STARS!!!!!!!! I am BLOWN AWAY!!! SERIOUSLY......BLOWN AWAY by this author! Pretty damn fantastic debut novel!! The writing is flawless, the storyline is beautiful and absolutely captures your heart from the start. I really tried to not devour it too quickly but I found myself reading wherever I could because I couldn't pull myself away!!! This is a MUST-READ this summer! I will be screaming it from the rooftops for sure!! Jackson is an extremely sexy, ex-Navy SEAL...do I have your attention, yet???? How about a body to die for, quick-witted and romantic??? And that doesn't even cover how much more this man is!!! He has loving parents and wonderful friends. But Jackson has a dark past, so much so that it causes him tremendous guilt and pain at times. Catherine is a beautiful, sassy and can hold her own like no one's business! She is just months into a bad breakup with her ex-fiancé when she captures Jackson's eye at a bar one night. Cat has a mountain full of baggage from her past. Unlike most of our leading ladies, she isn't whiny and annoying but that doesn't go to say that she doesn't have doubts that cause major issues in her life. Catherine's girlfriends are a hoot, hold no punches in telling her how it is.....there is no candy-coating which I find refreshing. The chemistry between Jackson & Cat is off the charts, truly SENSATIONAL! So much so, that I could feel it from beginning to end. It is so hard to put into words the love I feel for this book! It has captured my heart and I look forward to more from this amazing writer!!!

Cannot agree witih the other reviewers. Cat is a drama queen and tho I liked Jackson, he became one also. Will not buy more and I hate cliff-hangers.
