Blog Tour Reviews: Consolation by Corinne Michaels

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.

 Meet Liam and Natalie in Consolation!

I lift my head and press my lips against his. His hand cradles my cheek and he holds me as we kiss. I grab his neck and feel the weightlessness from letting a little part of myself go. He kisses me adoringly and cautiously, allowing me to lead but still commanding me. I lose myself a little more as I moan when his hand presses against the small of my back.
“Let go,” he says against my mouth. “Let me take it for you.”
Before I can say anything, his mouth is on mine again. Our tongues thrash against each other as the kiss becomes hungry. He pulls me close so there’s no space between us. The low sound resonates through his chest, sending shivers down my spine. It’s sexy, and before I know it, my hands are traveling to his chest. I pull his shirt out and my fingers trail up his chest. I want to feel his skin.
Liam breaks the kiss. “Natalie,” my name is both a plea and a request.
“Shhh,” I instruct him as I unbutton his shirt. “I want to feel your heart.”
My hands glide up and he trembles beneath my touch. We stand here with my fingers resting on his chest, feeling his heart beat beneath me. He’s alive and here with me. His hands stay at his sides as he once again lets me decide where I’m going with this.
“I want to touch you so bad,” he admits and his hand lifts then drops. “I’m fighting every muscle in my body right now.”
“Stop fighting,” I say without thinking.

Oh. My. Gracious. I don't even know how to begin my review for Consolation by Corinne Michaels because everything I want to say is riddled with spoilers. This book is so insanely amazing you won't want to miss out on it. This is the first book in the Consolation Duet, and I cannot wait for the second book already.
I am such a sucker for drama. This synopsis had me hooked with all that talk about dead husbands and loving their best friends. Throw in the fact that our hero wears a uniform. Please and thank you. Sign me up. Natalie loses her husband and on the road to closure catches feelings for Liam, her husband's best friend. Close your eyes and imagine the angst and feels this book has. Then multiply that by a billion. That's the kind of emotional turmoil you're going to get dragged through while reading Consolation. It's addictive. It's fantastic. I loved every heartbreaking second.
This book does end in a cliff. A cliff that is so mind blowingly unexpected, I can't even go there right now. Corinne Michaels, I feel like you've put on every gaudy ring in a Charming Charlie store, turned them around, and slapped me across the face. Cold blooded. The anxiety I have when I think about what book two will be like. Ugh. Pick up Consolation by Corinne Michaels. It's a must read!

WOW WOW WOW! This book was hands down on of the best books I have read in 2015. The synopsis grabbed me right away. Add in an absolute stunning cover and I was sold. This was my first Corrine Michaels book and it will not be the last.

All the feels were there with this story. They started on the first page and didn’t stop until my jaw hit the ground on the last page! Natalie and Liam were great characters. I’m pretty I fell head over heels in love with Liam. He was the perfect man with imperfections. Le sigh. Natalie was pretty amazing too. She kept taking hit after hit but she was strong. She never let the hits keep her down for long.

This book ends in a cliffhanger. One that will make you wish it was already May 27. I absolutely loved Corrine’s writing style and was in the story with the characters every step of the way. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

You must read this book! You will not regret it! SOOOO good.
