**This book can be read as a STANDALONE! **
My life is a secret.
His life is dangerous.
We’re both stubborn, calculating, and controlling.
Mark Dixon doesn’t know what he’s getting into.
He doesn’t know his games could cost us our lives.
I have to do what is necessary to keep us alive, and that means guarding my heart.
But I know I’m defenseless against him, and in the end, he’ll force me to surrender.
Oh. My. Gosh.
What a book! What a perfectly stunning, mind blowing book! Defenseless is perfection at its core! Corinne’s writing is flawless. Charlie is someone I wanted to be best friends with. And Mark Dixon—I would’ve married him right here, right now, no proposal needed. This book is going to rank higher in my Top Reads Forever because it is THAT amazing.
Defenseless is Mark and Charlie’s suspenseful yet romantic and funny story.
Mark was a former Navy SEAL from Team Four while Charlie was a CIA agent. Just from that alone, I knew I’d totally love it. I’m a sucker for military romance and Corinne did a great job at it on her first two duets. But what made Defenseless stand out on its own, really? Well for starters there’s Mark. The cocky, very amusing, intelligent, hot piece of an ass who loved to mindfuck (and just… fuck) Charlie all the time. He also loved his friends hard and would do just about everything for them. What I loved most about Mark though was his determination. On things. On his job. On Charlie. He’s definitely my kind of alpha male. Then there’s Charlie. Oh gosh, Charlie! I love her with all my heart! She’s definitely one of the strongest female characters out there because this CIA agent gave another meaning to badass. I loved her job, I loved that she loved her job and she was awesome at it. Above all else, she had the heart and mind (and body) to be the perfect muse for a woman ready to dominate the world. But them together? They’re a force—a very powerful force like gravity.
So you see, we have two equally skilled and trained to kill characters. But when you read a Corinne Michaels’ book—it’s not just about love and personality. It’s the adrenaline I have no idea how she poured into the book while reading and the action that came with it. Bedroom action, verbal sparring, military intelligence, the real action of killing and fighting for life—you’d get it all from Defenseless! And if it’s not an indication of a must-read book, I have no idea what is. Because like I said it was perfect and believe me when I say you would never get bored with Corinne’s narrative. Her being a Navy wife backed her knowledge around military and politics stuff so there’s no downplaying anything. Corinne has perfected the Navy and CIA intelligence with steam and passion of a powerhouse couple like no other author has done before.
Defenseless won’t ever disappoint if you’re like me who’s a sucker for beautifully-written hot, military romance loaded with so much angst, sexy times and adrenaline rush that will surely make you sit over the edge all the time while captivating your full attention. Defenseless isn’t just another book—it’s a masterpiece. It will own you—heart, mind and soul.
