My week has been hectic and I’m glad next week is a National Holiday here in Brazil!!! I’ll have time to read and read and read!!!
Today Beauty and the Beastly Books is a stop in the Consolation blog tour, so I hope you enjoy this post!!!
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.
MY RATING: 4 Beastly stars
Consolation is a book that started slow for me. But once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down.
The second half of the book is the best in my opinion. I had the plot twist in my head since I started the book and I was glad to see I was right (on both twists)! Now I can’t wait for Conviction.
Consolation is the story of Nathalie a 27 year old widow with a baby who starts to fall in love with her dead husband’s best friend and Seal’s buddy. Liam has never had any feelings for Nathalie before his best friend’s death. They were friends only. But from the moment he starts helping Nathalie, something more starts building between the two of them.
I have to admit I didn’t like Nathalie at first, but after I got into the story, she progressively took me by surprise when she decided to really take a chance on Liam and on living again!
What about Liam…oh Liam!!! He was swoon worthy all the time and very supportive of Nathalie, even when it looked like his best friend wasn’t that honored men they all though so…
I loved Nathalie’s own best friend also, she is so funny! And her husband is great as well. The guys that worked with Nathalie’s husband and later with her were also great too! I didn’t know before that Corinne wrote two books about one of them, Jackson. I will be reading those, because I could sense there was a previous story there!
The nicknames everyone receive in the book are so funny, great idea on Corinne’s part!
Even though I thought the story was slow paced at first I really liked when it starte building up, I got into it and I couldn’t put it down. It has swoon moments, mystery, (healthy) drama, romance…and it has Liam!
Now, I can’t wait for more Liam on Conviction and to see how the story will unfold from where it ended on Consolation!!!

Aarabelle sits in her highchair as I feed her dinner. She’s growing so fast. Already she’s eating cereal and a little baby food. Soon she’ll be crawling and I have no one to celebrate with. Her father will never see these milestones and it breaks me apart.
“You should really lock the door,” Liam huffs as he throws his coat over the chair.
“But then I’d have to get up to let you in,” I state matter-of-factly and go back to feeding the baby, trying to put aside my worries. The fact is…this is reality. I have to deal with it.
“Uh huh. Hey, Pumpkin,” his eyes alight as he crouches down by Aara. It’s adorable hearing grown men use a baby voice. It gets a little softer and higher pitched.
The corners of her mouth lift and she throws her arms in the air when he gets close. My heart sputters seeing how happy she gets seeing him. Liam kisses her head and she giggles.
“At least someone is happy to see me,” he says playfully.
“I’d be happy if you brought me a present,” I joke.
He laughs and goes into the pocket of his coat. “Just so happens I did, but since that’s the only way you’ll be nice, I’ll hold on to this until you’ve earned it.”
Practically leaping out of my chair, I rush over. “What is it?” I try to peer around his back as he holds the mystery item.
Liam’s lips curl as he sees how much I want this. I don’t even know what it is. Jeez, I’m an idiot. “Nope. We eat first, then maybe you’ll get it.”
“Watch, it’s a freaking Pez dispenser or something stupid.”
“Guess you’ll have to be nice to find out.” He shoves the item into his back pocket and I fight the urge to reach and get it. “How was work?”
We spend the next thirty minutes going over my day and Jackson’s return. Liam never mentioned that they spoke, but he’s surprised to hear he’s in Virginia. After we finish the pizza, Liam somehow convinces me we should watch a movie. I get Aarabelle to bed and come down to find him sprawled out on the couch.
“By all means, make yourself comfortable.”
Liam pulls his beanie higher on his forehead and his eyes glimmer with amusement. He sits up and puts the TV on. “I picked the movie.”
“What?” I ask with mock incredulity. “It’s my house. Why do you get to pick the movie?”
“Ummm, I’m the guest.” He shrugs as if this should be an obvious answer.
I groan and lean back. “What crappy, shoot-‘em-up movie do I have to endure?”
“You’ll see. It’s a classic.”
