What a fast paced , real life, rip your heart out, put you back together and then rip your heart out all over again simply amazingly beautiful conclusion for Jackson and Catherine! Just WOW!
We all remember how Beloved ended right? It left you broken. Literally BROKEN! Do you think Michaels, could give us a breather? Maybe put us in a five minute time out? Of course not! There is no fun in that now is there?
I’ve twiddled my thumbs because I do not want to spoil one single thing with my review. So I start with a few words that come to mind as I think about what I’ve read.
We all know how stubborn our Jackson is, but we also know how much Catherine loves him and no matter how hard he pushes, she isn’t going anywhere. She isn’t one to leave someone’s side when they need her the most even though he won’t admit he needs anyone. But how long can she hold on? Will they both survive the road ahead when pasts are revealed?
Catherine has grown so much from what we knew in the beginning of Beloved. She wasn’t the same girl a few months ago. She knows she deserves more and that includes someone walking away and not looking back. That someone includes Jackson.
Can they overcome? Will one walk away again and not look back?? Will Jackson let go….of himself, of the memories, of the pain?
“I love you deeply. I love you with every breath I take. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve fucked up. I know this, but love me. Don’t give up on us”
Of course, our favorites pop back in (ok not so favorites). Neil and Piper back in action but do they get dished out a huge pile of shit they deserve? You know their shenanigans don’t ever stop. But does Neil, have a secret causing him to be the way he is. Piper? Ehhh we know she’s just a total twunt, but….
“Fucking Piper. One Day, karma is going to throat punch her and I’m going to laugh” That’s right, we all want that laugh! Hopefully Karma comes knocking on her door and fast.
I love how Ash, Tay and Gretchen rocked in this book we saw more of them and the stories of the guys, seriously the devotion, dedication and loyalty was spot on for those who served and sacrificed to save others really hit home in this one for me as the realness of this book is out of this world. You will laugh, you will cry, and you’ll cry some more through this entire book. Corinne really hit a home run with this conclusion of their story for sure. Beloved and Beholden will be one of those stories I will never forget. If I could give it 10 stars I would. Literally HOME RUN!
Now, I’m sitting here reeling over hearing the others stories, because my oh my, what a story they have to tell!
Title: Last Light (Night Owl Trilogy Book #2)

Release Date: October 28, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Matt Sky is missing. After a solo ascent of Longs Peak that left only a large blood stain, tatters of climbing clothing, and the tracks of an animal in the snow, he is presumed dead.
Hannah Catalano is guarding a secret: she knows Matt is alive. After Matt’s memorial service, she lingers on the East Coast with his family, but it soon becomes clear that his brothers’ motives are less than gracious. Nate Sky is bent on tracking down the author of Night Owl, a book that charts the last days of Matt’s life with uncanny and scandalous accuracy, and which appeared only after his death. Seth Sky is bent on getting Hannah into his bed.
Hidden away in the woods, Matt and Hannah strive desperately to maintain their ruse and their relationship—but their web of lies only tightens as Matt struggles with the consequences of his decision, and Hannah tries to escape Nate’s libel suit and fend off Seth’s advances…until Hannah is put in danger, and Matt must make a life or death choice.
Collins Drake exercises control over all facets of his life. From his business, to satisfying his physical needs … it all happens on his command.
So when a woman shows up at his door and reminds him of a promise they made each other when they were just ten years old, it shouldn’t have the ability to rock his entire world.
Yet it does.
Because Mia Monroe wasn’t just his childhood best friend, she wasn’t just the girl he lost his virginity to and hasn’t seen since, she’s the one exception to his perfect control. And piece by piece, she’s about to tear apart his carefully laid plans.

Salem Cruz grew up in house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn’t wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her; the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been head over heels in love with her little sister.
Now, fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.
Dalton Calhoun hadn’t always planned on a life up on the big stage, beneath the bright lights, but that was where he found himself. A second chance of sorts. An opportunity that had come along after his real dreams vanished when he was eighteen years old. Although country music was more than he could’ve expected, he’d never dismissed the notion that there was still something missing.
When Dalton followed his buddy Cooper Krenshaw to Devil’s Bend, Texas, it didn’t take long before Dalton realized just what that was. But just because he has topped the country music charts, and made his fair share of women swoon, doesn’t mean that everything comes easy to him. And when he sets his sights on the black-haired, gray-eyed waitress at The Rusty Nail, Dalton realizes he might just have to work for what he wants.
Katie Clarren’s life has been a series of unfortunate events, starting from the time her mother left on her eighteenth birthday. Not exactly how she had planned to spend one of the major turning points in her young life. Nor had she planned to spend the next five years dealing with the fallout. Somewhere along the way, Katie adapted, doing exactly what she needed to do in order to survive. But Katie has secrets that even her closest friends don’t know. Secrets she has worked hard to protect.
Although she longs for handsome, charming, country music sensation, Dalton Calhoun, she knows that anything that starts between them can’t last. Too bad her heart doesn’t seem to be on the same page. Katie gives in to her love for Dalton, needing that human connection that has been missing for so long. But when it comes time to make the hard decisions, Katie forces herself to walk away from him. To protect her secrets, and him. The last thing she wants to do is hurt Dalton, no matter how much pain she has to endure in the process. She loves him.
Can the two of them overcome the secrets and lies? Can they look to the future and stop living in the past? Or will they keep dwelling on the dreams that vanished, not seeing what is right in front of them? Each other.
