Book One in the Consolation Duet

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 Thoughts - Story
In the beginning I was a bit overwhelmed with all the talk of death and the constant memories of Aaron, but as the story progressed and we got more into the story of Lee and Liam – that is when this book did a complete turn around. Also finding out that Aaron wasn’t all he was cracked up to be – at times annoyed me, pissed me off and it got to be a bit too much. 


Now Liam on the other hand…I loved everything he did – his loyalty, faithfulness, patience and damn – just about everything with that man.


What really kicked me over the edge and has me hanging by thread is the ending. I have to be honest and kind of thought it a possibility but shit…it still took me by surprise.


This was a great first book I have read from this author and I have a big feeling it won’t be my last.


Lee is pregnant and after a routine operation her husband is on – she finds out that he perished overseas. Instantly turning into a single mom of a newborn, she at first shuts herself off for 6 months but with the help of her husband’s best friend, she learns to laugh again.


Innocent friendship turns into so much more and a new romance blossoms. Lee also has to deal with a flood of secrets from the past where Liam is right by her side for support.


Just as things start to take off and the “L” word is shared – Lee is…..


Nope – Yeah – Fucking A
