Summary

Book two of two 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.

Love narrators n hero. Heroine not so much

Could absolutely not stand catherine. She was weak n annoying. She needed to just get over some stuff n move on. Jackson was wayyyy to good for her. Loved jackson n mark. Narration was amazing. Love andi and the male was good. Why oh why do authors do the thing where all that is needed is one sentence to clear up everything, jackson literally just need to say “hey i have an ex wife” wouldnt have been a big deal. I guess catherine would’ve blown it out of proportion so maybe thats why🤷🏻‍♀️. Catherine would talk about how tough she is and can hold her own with anyone blah blah. When she attacked neil i was like ok maybe she does have some grit. Wrong, maybe thats the problem....she was inconsistent. One part she would stand up for herself n the next cry n run away. If she wasnt so annoying i would have loved this duet

OBservation

I don’t understand why some readers get annoyed with angst in books. Yes, of course everything could be resolved with one sentence or direct communication, but then THEIR WOULD BE NO STORY TO READ OR BOOK TO READ? Just endless novellas without any depth to it.

The main chick is THE most annoying woman in any story I’ve listened too

Omg....I’ve never wanted to slap a non existent person in my life. I had to stop listening

I’m breaking up with these characters.

Listening to the second audiobook in this set I’m not happy with either of the main characters. Both Jackson and Catherine make a huge deal out of every little thing while they never shut up long enough to get the facts. And considering the fact that they’re both adults and never learn from their mistakes, I’m breaking up with both of them. I enjoyed the narrators but two books filled with repetitive behavior could have easily been edited down to one good story.

Beholden

This audible book was very engaging. The story picked up without repetition of the prior book. The writing is awesome. The narrators are spot on. There drama and trauma of characters involvement in a firefight in Afghanistan, as well as the same for families in the loss, injury and recovery is so vivid. The heroine and hero occasionally annoyed me but that’s ok. Sometimes I could hear myself expressing my approval or disapproval of their behavior. But that’s okay. It just speaks to how well this is written. The ending left me feeling as if I missed something even though it wrapped up well with the future of the couple. Perhaps the epilogue and an alternate ending of a prior chapter threw me off. Regardless this is a great book!

What a story!!!

Corinne Michaels killed me and then brought me back again with this breathtaking love story. Catherine was hurt... so hurt.. but she let him back in. She told him what she needed and he agreed, knowing all the time he was not telling her everything. Her heart shattered.. once again the man she loves broke her. There’s no going back. This story and these characters reach out and grab you... pulling you into their life and their story. And you love every minute of it!!! And I Arndt and Ryan Hudson were excellent choices for narrators for this!!

Great Series!

Corrine Michaels, I love your books! Ryan and Andi were fantastic narrators! Katherine and Jackson went through betrayal, loss of loved ones but their love survived!

Beholden

I am currently on book 5, this is one of the best series I have read in a very long time! Each book is full of laughter, tears, twists and love. The characters all have funny banter, emotional angst and exceptional character development. I cant say enough great things about them. Once you start, you cant put them down, and you find yourself downloading the next one as soon as the credits roll on the one you listening to. As always, the Andi Arndts narration has knocked these out of the park. I have also enjoyed the male narrators (even though i agree with other reviewers that I would have liked a little more screen time with the male POV.) This Author has fast tracked her way onto my "must read" author list, if any of her other books or series are as good as this one, I absolutely cant wait to get my hands on them! Take a chance, download the first book and see where it leads you, my bet is that you will soon find yourself staying up late and spending a little too much time justifying how "just 30 more mins" of missed sleep to listen to these books are worth it!

Ten Stars!!!

Beloved and Beholden captured my attention and my emotions all the way through! Jackson's and Catherine's love story fully captivates the reader with their lighthearted flirting to their gut-wrenching heartache.

Hate one POV

Hate when there’s one POV. This takes away a good story. This got four stars because of good writing. Andi did 95% reading. When the hero POV came, I didn’t see a point for his part. I fast forward most of the story to get to the end.
