Publisher's Summary

Not enough. Catherine Pope has never been enough. Every man she has ever loved abandoned her - from her father to her fiancé. She finally accepted the fact she would never be enough to hold any man's heart and soul.
Then Catherine met Jackson Cole.
When her world literally collided with the sexy former Navy SEAL, everything she always believed is turned upside down and left scattered. He made her feel alive and desirable, consumed her with fierceness and loyalty - which completely unnerved her. Jackson got her in a way no one ever had, giving him the power to destroy her.
If she breaks down and gives him what's left of her battered heart - will he protect it? Or will Catherine become an irrelevant part of yet another man's life?
Will she get the one thing that has always evaded her - to finally be someone's beloved?

Cheated - To Be Continued???

I CALL FOUL!!! A romance novel is not supposed to end halfway through the story. Yes it's a good story, although I find Katherine a little on the whiney side. And some of the things Jackson says and does reminds me of textbook controlling/abusive men (which I find disturbing in the hero) however he is believable as one of the good guys. I get so entirely frustrated with purchasing a book only to find there's not a happy ending conclusion. If I wanted novels like that, I would change genres. Any book that does mot complete the story I purchased should state in the description " This is book does not include the happily ever after ending". Otherwise I think I'm getting at least one full story with the option to purchase additional story beyond the happily ever after or perhaps the story of the roommate.
I don't like purchasing only half a book.

It was okay. Felt like a waste for me.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator. Hollie Jackson voice sounded syrupy. Too high (squilly) when she sounded excited. I am not sure if I could not connect with the heroine because I could not stand the narrators voice.

Would you be willing to try another book from Corinne Michaels? Why or why not?

I am not sure if I would try another book by Corinne Michaels. I really did not care for the heroine in this book. I am not sure why someone as successful and attractive as Jackson would want Catherine. Catherine had way to many daddy issues and insecurities. Plus I think Catherine is 29 years old in this book, but yet she needs every thought to go through her BFF, Ashton. "I need to talk to Ashton before I do this." "I tell Ashton everything." "I need Ashton, she would know what to do." "Ashton, Ashton, Ashton." I thought Catherine was going to bring Ashton to bed with her and Jackson to dictate whether she was performing correctly.. I get the BFF thing, but at 29 and a professional...I don't think you need your BFF to help you with every thought and action. Plus, the heroine always had to bring up the cost of living and why she lives in NJ and not on the upper east side and why blah, blah, blah. WHO CARES?!?!?
I am thinking the author is probably gong to set up Jackson's BFF, Mark, with Ashton. My message to Mark: "RUN!!" She may be pretty to look at, but she uses men like that poor guy at her lab who keeps taking her out for dinner, but Ashton says she will not sleep with him.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Hollie Jackson?

Piper Goodeve or Natalie Ross

Do you think Beloved needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There is a cliffy so it obviously needs a follow-up, but I am not going to read it. I just did not connect with the characters, so I will not be wasting another credit.

Any additional comments?

I am a cliffy whore, but this cliffy did nothing for me.

Sickly romance

Long drawn out repetitive romance, with a cliffhanger at the end,probably the worst romance novel I have ever read listened to..

I enjoyed the story, the narration was also fun. Hollie (narrator) captured the emotions perfectly with her words.
Kat was a likeable character but at times she really got on my nerves. the same could be said for Jackson, at first I loved him but towards the end he started to annoy me.
And the ending? what the hell!? not happy with it at all, I hate cliffhangers LOL. I look forward to reading book 2!

Great Listen

Don't get me wrong I love the story and the main characters but I hate it when I am left hanging without book 2!

Apparently book 2 is out but not available on audible. It sucks! Not knowing if they end up together or end up separating for good.

At the end of the chapter, it literally said "TO BE CONTINUED"....please have book 2 soon. It's eating me up not knowing. And I do not wish to read, I prefer to listen.

Another thing, there was a little glitch should try to fix that but overall its a good listen.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the Consolation duet and Defenceless by Corrine Michaels (yes, I know I read out of order!) and so was interested to read this duet. The story was interesting and gave me a background of Cole Security and all the events leading up to Defenceless. I also liked Jackson, he was UBER alpha and very protective and possessive. What I found hard to enjoy was the heroine Catherine. She was whiny and narcissistic. Everything was "oh poor me"! At times I wanted to reach into my kindle and strangle her!! Definitely not a likeable heroine. I enjoyed the narrator Hollie Jackson though !
