Not enough.

Catherine Pope has never been enough. Every man she has ever loved abandoned her—from her father to her fiancĂ©. 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?

Corinne is an emotional, witty, sarcastic, and fun loving mom of two beautiful children. She’s happily married to the man of her dreams and is a former Navy wife. After spending months away from her husband while he was deployed, reading and writing was her escape from the loneliness.

I have a weakness for men wearing a sharp suit. Add ex-SEAL to the mix and there you have it; my perfect book boyfriend. I knew Jackson Cole would be added to my exclusive list before reading Beloved. Catherine is a heroine we can all identify with. All the ingredients for a 5 star read.

Catherine is a woman who's life is scarred by the men in her life walking out on her. Heartbroken and dealing with her resulting abandonment issues, she throws herself into becoming the top of her profession. What she didn't expect was to land a contract with a Raven Cosmetics, who's CEO was a man she literally fell for.
Jackson is the honorable ex-SEAL turned successful business man who is plagued by guilt issues. He's swore off women, but is taken by surprise when a beautiful woman literally lands in his lap one evening. Even more surprising when the same woman turns out to be the publicist he's hired for his cosmetic company.

When their worlds collide Catherine and Jackson have instant chemistry and when they are together they sizzle! They are meant to be together but both are dealing with emotional baggage which in turn throws their relationship into turmoil. Catherine doesn't want to commit to a relationship because all the men she has ever loved end up leaving her. Jackson wants to keep Catherine close, but he carries the weight of guilt on his shoulders for the deaths of close ones and doesn't want to put Catherine at risk of the same fate. So he does the only thing he knows is right...

This is a fabulous debut by Ms Michaels. Beloved is the kind of book you just don't want to end, so the cliffhanger is a huge positive for me because I'm not ready to let go of Catherine and Jackson yet. Beholden, I am patiently waiting for you.
