Beholden to You by Carlie Sexton  On the heels of a tragic loss, the stunning and innocent Natalie Mason, meets handsome business mogul Mac Carter. As Natalie attempts to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, circumstances beyond her control draw her and Mac into a situation she wants kept secret. The two are a matched set having both experienced immense loss in their lives. Uncertain of what she should do, she decides to give fate a chance, opening her heart to Mac, who just wants to love her.

But the past, who often times takes no prisoners, rears its ugly head in a double dose. Mac’s ex-girlfriend cannot accept that their love affair is over and takes drastic measures through deception and blackmail to ensure that Mac will be hers.

Natalie, on the other hand, has to face the one responsible for her sister’s death. As her journey begins to bring justice and closure, the past transports to her feet an unexpected surprise—a long lost love desiring to possess her as his once again.

Will Mac and Natalie’s newly blossoming love be able to endure what the past has delivered or will the victors of their hearts be the old flames who are staking their claim?


     Living in a whirlwind that was made in heaven.  Or could it be whatever happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas?  You see Neil and Kate are getting married.  Being that they are best friends to Natalie Mason and Mac Carter it’s only natural that they and Charlie and Mitch would all go for a pre-wedding weekend for the wedding party to Vegas.

     Let’s back up the only two that hadn’t met yet was Mac and Natalie.  Which they finally do on Thanksgiving.  Since he is officially part of Neil’s family ever since Mac’s parents were killed in a plane crash.  When Nat excused herself from the table the family explained that Nat too had losses her parents several years ago but about a week ago her sister was killed in a car accident at the hands of the boyfriend who had been using.  At that time Mac explained losing his parents gave her a hug and they both felt sparks right then.

     So when the trip for Vegas came up Mac offered to drive her.  They totally enjoyed each other company.  So that night partying going in a Limo from bar to bar they decided to leave together to go back to their hotel.  But somewhere along the way, they ended up getting married.

     This couple is funny and sad all at the same time.  You can see all the fears and insecurities they have as people but as a couple also.  It’s interesting how the author likes to make Nat and the reader believe he’s big, strong, and secure when he’s not.  He’s that young boy his parents left behind who wants so desperately to be loved.  He wants his own sense of family back and since he couldn’t do anything  

About the crash that when a guy threatens his sense of family and love his mean comes out.  When they return home, Mac is greeted by his ex-who tells him there is the clause in his parents will.  Saying that he has to marry before his next birthday since they aren’t telling anyone their married until after Neil’s wedding, Cassie thinks she has him now to be her husband.

     This just all gets crazy from her because even though Nat doesn’t want anyone to know at first out of fear she does not like this ex, Cassie around her husband.

     I really liked this story of Mac and Natalie but…I really had a hard time giving it a 5 star because I did not find this a standalone book.  I really felt like I was coming in the middle of this movie and I did not know all the characters.  I say this because they kept talking about this character Roger who the hell is Roger?  Is he an ex to Kate or just a stalker?  And what was the deal with Mitch does a little overprotective mean anything?  Why?  See what I mean.  But I do have an interview coming with this Author on the 7th of February.  I will be asking a lot of these questions and more.  Provided by
