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.
“Charlie isn’t the kind of woman you move on from. She draws you in with the brightness of her sun and then leaves you fucking blind. There’s something deep and dark inside of her.”
Corinne Michaels has done it again. Defenseless was so unexpected and has such a different feel from the other books involving these characters. Defenseless is Mark and Charlie’s story. Mark is a man on a mission, wanting to get answers for what happened to Aaron and why things keep happening that shouldn’t. Charlie has intrigued him since the moment she helped rescue Aaron. The two of them share an attraction, an explosive connection. They want to explore it, but can’t because they need to keep their head in the game. But, as time goes on; these two quickly discover that their connection won’t go away. They are defenseless against the way they feel about each other. But, as they give in to what they want, the stakes have gotten even higher…
As I previously stated, Defenseless is so different from the other books that I’ve read by Corinne Michaels. Without going into too much detail, I can tell you that this book will answer a lot of questions. You will get to see how the rescue mission happened and how all the dots will align. Is there romance? Yes, there is tons of delicious, sexy moments. Mark and Charlie do not disappoint. But, there’s more to it than just the romance. There is action. There is drama. There is suspense. There is intrigue. And there are lots of good twists and turns that will leave you wondering who you can trust and who you can’t. This book definitely takes you on one thrilling ride.
Defenseless was a great addition to the Salvation Series, but can be read as a stand-alone. However, I do recommend checking out the other books in this series prior to reading this one, only because, I think you will enjoy Mark’s story even more. I loved getting to spend time with all my old friends from the previous books and seeing how their lives have continued to go forward, has left me with a big smile on my face! Defenseless was a fantastic read. If you are a fan of the Salvation Series, you won’t want to miss out on Mark’s story!
