I fell in love with Liam only to be left shattered into a million pieces. Again. The idea of being without him cripples me but the reality is, he’s gone.

He doesn’t understand and I can’t make him.

If only he’d see the conviction behind my words—then Liam would still be here.

After reading Consolation, I was desperate for Conviction. I had to know what happened next. I needed to find out what direction Natalie’s journey would take. It could have went so many different directions. After finishing the story, I think that Corinne handled this delicate situation perfectly.

Natalie’s life has been a whirlwind of crazy. And it’s taken even more unexpected turns as of late. I loved the way our leading lady handed things. I respected her and admired that

I’d like to start by saying first, the beauty of Corinne’s writing is something powerful. This book gutted me. Made me happy. Made me laugh. Yes. There are lots of those laugh out loud moments. You will cry. Happy and sad tears. The writing will strip you bare and truly make you feel every. God. Damn. Emotion. The feels, guys. You will feel it. Everywhere.

SQUEEEE!!!!! What an awesome book duet!!

I read both books in this series back-to-back and absolutely loved them!! I was hooked from the first page of the prologue and couldn't put either book down even for a minute. These books were  addictive , thrilling, emotional , romantic, sexy , and everything I could want in a series! 

I'll be honest, it was the blurb of the first book that made me want to read them...

LIVE on Amazon:

Earlier this year I was introduced to Corinne’s writing when I read a preview of her upcoming release Consolation. I read a few pages and started balling. I was in shock and honestly disbelief, amazed that just a few pages could completely break my heart.

I became mildly obsessed with reading this book. After some serious begging, I was able to read Consolation early. Well, I should have known better, but Consolation only made me want more. Now I have read

Conviction is pure unadulterated romance with an added dose of heart wrenching angst. Readers addicted to this genre will devour with love. It's the second and final part in the Consolation Duet. The first part left me breathless with anticipation, and craving more. The story arc of the entire series is beautiful and unexpected and one that needs to remain unspoiled for all readers, so my review will be purposefully ambiguous and simply provide an overview of

This second installment begins right after the end of the first. After the big reveal it’s all in the ends of Natalie how to decide which way she wants to go.
She knows exactly what she wants, but when she and Liam’s lives are once again turned around, can they find a way this time to be happy?


I confess that after the previous book, I was a little scared about this one and the direction it would take. Luckily, Natalie was very strong on her actions and Liam was pretty much am

First I owe Reanell Tisdale a huge thank you for not only recommending this author but for sending me a copy of Beloved; which ultimately hooked me.

Part two of the Consolation Duet is tricky, it’s all about the resolution that comes from the first part and the shocking ending of Consolation and so it would be a huge disservice to the readers out there to go into that resolution. If you have not read Consolation yet, fix that. Be wary of spoilers in reviews to Convictio

JEEZ! Can you possibly have more drama than this?! Okay, so I knew going into this book that shit had just hit the fan. The ending of the first book, Consolation, left me no choice other than to buy this book. In all honesty, I wasn't impressed with the first book and reluctantly bought this one because I had to know how things ended. I'm in the minority here, mind you. Many people loved this, just not me.

I loved this series. This second book is also as good as the first book. I only wished it were shorter because in my opinion, it dragged a little bit with some unnecessary details. Still, it was really good.

The first book ends at a crazy cliffhanger and this book starts right at that point.

There were a few huge plot twists in Book 1.


(You shouldn't read any more of this review if you haven't read Book 1 yet because there will be many spoilers to ruin Book 1 for you.)

When you finish a book that has completely blown your mind you find it hard to put into words how you’re feeling. Like there are no words powerful enough to express yourself.

I’ll be honest having not read this author before I didn’t know what to expect and I didn’t think her words were going to effect as much as they have.

3.5 - 4 ★'s

At the end of the first book, Consolation, there was a big bombshell and now everything is in utter chaos. The only good thing is that Natalie knows exactly what she wants.

My one big problem with this book, (and I can't believe I'm really saying this), is that there is just too much angst. That's right...too much, as in, over the top, cheesy and never ending. It was almost borderline ridiculous at times.

But...I was happy with the way Natalie handled things. Thank goodness for havin

There’s so much to be said about this story. The first being that it was beautifully written and left my heart soaring.

Corinne, sure knows how to make a person suffer. From start to finish, I was feeling a wide range of emotions. If you’re just tuning in, Consolation is the first book, and it ended with the mother of all BANGS!!

Now with Conviction, we experience Lee, in a whole new light. She’s strong beyond everything that is thrown at her and even in the moments of de

I think trying to continue with this series was a mistake for me. I tried so hard to like it, I really did. But I just couldn’t see in it what everyone else did. I think it was important for me to have connected to the characters in the first book, and since I didn’t, I should have anticipated this. I was curious to see as to how the story will enfold after that cliff hanger, but it still didn’t improve much for me. I’ve yet to finish this book but I just don’t think I can go on.

When Consolation ended, I was completely wrecked. Corinne Michaels can bring the angst and tears like no other. She delivers passionately hot romance that is deep and gut-wrenching, and she NEVER makes the road to HEA easy! Such is the case with Natalie Gilcher and the men who love her.

The anticipation for this book was overwhelming for me. I fell in love with Natalie's story in Consolation and craved the conclusion I know I would find in Conviction. To say I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this book is an understatement. Corinne Michaels has once again proven she is an incredible writer who delivers exactly what the readers desire.

The author is so well versed in the military life that her ability to convey the absolute joy and horror Natalie faced at finding her presumed-dea

I just read and loved Consolation (see my review here), and dove into this sequel as soon as I finished it. I can’t really say anything about the story without spoiling the first book, so all I will say is that it’s an emotional rollercoaster, but it was absolutely perfect. It showed me everything that I wanted to see, and more.

The first one had more to do with grief, and moving was a good story, but this one had a lot more to it - it told more of a story. I love Liam :) and his relationship with Natalie, but there were 2 relationships I loved even more...Liam and Aarabelle and Liam and Robin :) [the first being beyond sweet and adorable, the 2nd being completely hilarious and ridiculous]

“Life is cruel. Love is a joke. And not even death is final.”

Conviction is another great read from Corinne Michaels. After the ending of Consolation I was on high alert for a lot of emotion and a lot of angst and Corinne Michaels delivered on both counts. While this was not as emotional as Consolation, this book was more a journey, a journey for all three of them.

I enjoyed this second installment just as much as the first. The Consolation was perfect as a duet. The story didn't drag out, but at the same time, we really got to know Natalie and Liam as they worked toward their happy ending.

If you haven't read the first book, this second installment will be a bit of a spoiler so proceed with caution. Conviction picks up right where the last book left off where Natalie must face yet another blow to her life. Just when she and Liam caught their stride and wer

Well, I read this book in a matter of 8 hours while I was at work...that's how good and captivating it was.

Did it get a bit boring and repetitive in parts?
Yes, but the magnitude of the angst more than made up for it.

Were the characters annoying at times?
OH HELL YES!! Aaron - I found myself rolling my eyes at him when he used the self pity card without taking what he did in consideration. And the repetitiveness of this also irritated me. (What a douche-bag)
