But she dared to hope.
She refuses to let fate take the reins this time. Catherine decides she’s going to fight.
Jackson Cole risked it all.
He thought this time would be different.
With his loyalties pulling him in two directions—it’s time to make a choice…his past or his future.
Will they be beholden to their fears or will they both fight against their demons and finally find the love they both long for?
Beloved was one my top read this year, so when Corinne pushed out Beholden so quickly I was more than excited to read this because lets face it, Beloved left you with a cliff hanger that made you throw your book across the room. Corinne likes to do that to us.
Beholden started where Beloved ended, so if you haven't read Beloved than don't read this review. Minutes,seconds... that's all we knew.. would Jackson be alive or face the ultimate sacrifice.. death. Well we know the latter didn't happen because there wouldn't be a book #2, but...... to end Beloved not knowing what could happen was just evil! :)...
We are left with a prologue that has your stomach all twisted, wondering where Catherine Pope was at the point of time- who's funeral- was it Jackson's??
Over all I hate to mention anything about the book other than you must read it! I know pretty vague right? But one ounce of info shared could ruin a story for others. If you asked me which book I liked better, I would say that Beloved will stay with me, however, Beholden had just amount of goodness, feel goods and intensity. Corinne was able to demonstrate the endless possibilities of friendship, grief, love and happily ever after. I loved Jackson and Catherine's story, Jackson fought hard for what he wanted and portrayed to be a strong man who didn't just love once but twice, and he had to learn to trust his love with someone new. He has experienced so much heartache in life, that he was sure that the one person who fell in his lap that one time was his forever.
Corinne is not done with these characters, Catherine and Jackson's story may be over, but there's a whole new story for their friends.
