Book 2 of 2 in the Belonging Duet

I tried resisting him. I fought to ensure history wouldn’t repeat itself. In the end, Jackson and I knew he would win. He broke down my walls, obliterated every excuse, and made me love him against all odds.

Then he shattered my heart into thousands of pieces.

I can’t let him back in. It was hard enough surrendering my heart the first time. If he hurts me again, I’ll never survive. No matter what he thinks, we’re beholden to our past.


  • Loved both books!

    All the emotions I went through reading these, especially beholden had me wishing there were more after this. I’ll definitely be reading the ones that follow the other characters.

  • Great love story

    By Tabbycat0257
    This was such a wonderful love story to read! I couldn’t put it down. I felt like I was Catherine. If felt so real. I would find myself smiling or laughing maybe even crying at times when I would read. Can’t wait to read more from this Author.
  • Two broken hearts

    A Review of Beholden by Corinne Michaels Two broken hearts - 5+++++ stars This book picks up where the last one left off. Jackson has been hit by sniper bullets and it looks like his life is hanging in the balance. Mark was with him, so he calls Catherine and she drops everything to fly to Germany to be with Jackson. I never had to live the military life, even though I was briefly engaged to an Army man when I was a lot younger. I thought I was ready for that life and the many ups and downs that the loved ones of those that serve are called to deal with. I have known several women that are married to military men and I have cried with them and laughed with them as well, but none of us really know the hell that these women (and even men) live with on a daily basis when our guys and gals are out 'there' keeping us all safe and secure. Catherine and Jackson have that once in a lifetime love that you never expect to get. Even though he knew love before and dealt with the guilt of losing her, the love that he has for Catherine is sooo much deeper. The pain that they both feel over the lies and betrayal are deeply felt and well written. Sometimes love just isn't enough to get you past the hard parts and you have to let the other person go in order to truly learn what love and sacrifice means. The parts that really stuck with me in this story was the part where Jackson was in the hospital and could hear everything that was going on around him but he was paralyzed and couldn't respond. I know that when my Mother was in the process of passing, I wondered if she could hear us and it gives me comfort to think that she did and that she was okay. Ms. Michaels has a way of tearing our hearts apart and then putting them back together with new understanding and appreciation for what we have. I have such deep respect for all those families that serve our great country, whether they are overseas or here at home, holding down the rest of us. May God watch over each and everyone of them. GREAT Storyline! **Honest review voluntarily provided for purchased product.**

  • Emotional roller coaster

    By Killeradtr
    WOW! I made it through Beloved fine but really struggled with my emotions to get through Beholden. This was a fantastic book even though it was an emotional roller coaster. ❤️

    Another excellent, thoroughly enjoyable read. Great characters with just enough naughtiness, laughter, tears, and twists to the storyline. Thanks for not ending with a cliff-hanger. It's preferable to choose to read the next sequel rather than feel tricked into it to find out what happens next. Thanks also for honoring the US military & SEALS, their wives and families, to whom we owe so much for their sacrifices. ❤️🇺🇸⚓️😍
