Defenseless Review

  • OMG!!!

    By Shaniqua Edmunds
    I freaking loved this book!!! Mark, you sexy beast!! Awesome job Corinne Michaels! I always look forward to reading your books!
  • Holy WOW, Charlie!

    By Evelness
    Another amazing story by Corrine; What do you get when you put two Alpha’s together? Insanity because both want it done ‘their way’ or no way at all. This story has several instances of Charlie & Mark exerting their Alpha and hitting a brick wall with each other. What do you get when one Alpha is male, the other female and they want each other? Hotness that will make YOU need a shower to cool off after reading this book. Awesome read. Could-not-put-it-down.
  • Mark is Mine

    By Coachwife27
    I loved every second of this book and then some. I couldn't put it down. The chemistry between Charlie and Mark is off the charts! I absolutely loved their banter with one another and her fight to not want him. But who wouldn't want Mark? Um no one. He is Amazing and I love him! This story was a fun a ride, and you will love them from the first moment Mark sees Charlie. Corinne is Amazing at making you feel every emotion that you will laugh, cry or yell at your kindle all night! Mark and Charlie are one of my very favorite book couples and I have read a lot. There is something about Mark that makes you smile. I would marry him! If you haven't read Corinne before you will be sucked in and be a forever fan. And read the whole series it's Amazing! Thank you Corinne for your stories, I truly love them all!
  • 5 Perfect Twilight Stars!

    After reading Consolation and Conviction, I really liked Mark, but I completely fell in love with him in Defenseless. That first chapter had me laughing and itching for more from this cocky and charasmatic alpha and I just couldn't put this one down. This is book 5 in the interconnected Salvation series, but can be read as a stand alone. Most of the time when I read a book, I will usually like the hero or heroine more than the other. This is the first time that I loved them both equally. Charlie and Mark are so perfect together because they are male/female versions of themselves! They are fiercely loyal, protective, intelligent, and give as good as they get. Their arrogance and competitive nature created some of the wittiest banter I have ever read. I was laughing out loud so many times from their little jabs and barbs. Corinne Michaels has such an awesome sense of humor! As if that wasn't enough though, Mark and Charlie's sexual chemistry is off the charts! These two were so hot that I thought my kindle might melt! They took going for a dip in the ocean and the mile high club to a whole other level. Don't even get me started on the audiobook either! Let's just say Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt did a phenomenal job bringing this book to life! ;) I'm usually not a huge fan of romantic suspense, but it really worked here and I was dying to uncover all the secrets and lies. The book was fast paced and kept me on my toes until the very end. Defenseless really had it all - action, mystery, comedy, and romance. I loved seeing old friends from the Salvation series too, especially Liam and Lee. The epilogue was perfect and left me with a smile on my face. Although I'm sad the series is over, I'm happy with how it all wrapped up. You definitely don't want to miss this one!

    This was the best in the series!
  • Mark and Charlie...Oh My!💜

    Defenseless was more than I had hoped for. It was full of suspense, surprise, sexytimes, and dashes of wittiness. Defenseless is unlike the other stories in this interconnected series. It throws you for a loop. Just when you think you know what will happen, BAM you don't. I really REALLY really LOVED Mark and Charlies voices. Charlie is working in a Mans World, and is the type of person to take no crap from anyone. She is strong-willed, passionate about her work, and very straight to the point. Mark is one cocky SOB. And the thing is, Mark is cocky for so many reasons, and he doesn't blow nonsense up your bum. He is a straight-shooter. He is also swoony. I think I loved this about him even more than his cockiness. Both of his traits play well for him in this story, and actually his cockiness is nothing new if you have read every book in this interconnected series. Mark is in each story, and his cockiness does not go unnoticed lol. The chemistry between Charlie and Mark gave me all sorts of butterflies. I loved how they connected. I love how the interacted with one another. They are a match made in Heaven. Their story is one for the ages. The way their story plays out will leave you in fits of laughter, or cause you to hold your breath because you don't know what will happen next. Another hit from the insanely talented Corrine Michaels. Her work completes me. Every story that she tells, grips me. I've been waging an inner battle with myself, over who I love more....Jackson, Liam, or Mark. Yeh, it is a tough decision. I think I love each of them in very different ways. They each are swoony, but they each hold something the other doesn't. So yeh, three way tie. But Charlie is a woman after my own heart. I, personally, felt that this book was a little different, in terms of the other stories in this series. To me it was a little darker. Like the darkness was looming. But not the scary dark romance stuff. What I mean, it wasn't as airy and light as, I felt that the other stories were. I LOVED that about the book though. To me it showcases, that Author Corrine Michaels has range. And to me, range is very important in story telling. If you are looking to start a book with some suspense, sexy-times, and wittiness, this book will rock your world! I would suggest starting with Beloved, since that is the very first book in this series, and you meet each character as the stories play out, but it isn't necessary. Happy Reading <3
  • A fantatic new book!

    By Felixcat71
    I first have to say I love Corrine Michaels – her Belonging and Consolaton series are the fantastic and I am so happy to say Defenseless is right there with them. Throughout the first two series, we have met Mark Dixon – loyal to Jackson and his team but also the joker of the group. He knows how to keep things light knowing the team needs it but when he is called upon to protect and serve he can be deadly. He is comfortable in his life no commitments, nothing that ties him down – that is until Charlie walks into his life. Charlie a CIA field operator met the team during a rescue mission. Trying to solve the mystery of her fathers death she finds a link between that and what has been going on with Cole Security. She has been helping Mark and the rest of the team find answers and, unfortunately, some of those answers are found in her own backyard. As the mystery continues to unravel she finds herself working more and more with Mark and the attraction between the two of them overwhelms her and as both Mark and Charlie surrender to each other the danger surrounding them increases. What I love about Corrine Michaels books is not only the character development and dialog between her characters – she does a fantastic job placing the reader in the middle of the action. You know and feel what is happening in both the happy moments as well as the moments that are terrifying. Each book I have read the writing gets better and better and as a fan, I eagerly wait for the next installment. She also introduces some new characters that I hope we get to know better. If you are a fan of romance, action and suspense than I not only recommend this book read the entire series – you won't be disappointed!
  • Another great book by Corinne Michaels

    By seansmother
    Corinne writes the hottest SEALS around!! She has made me love Mark as much, if not more, than Jackson and Liam. But she also writes strong women, and Charlie is kickass strong!! The push and pull between these two is intense, emotional, satisfying. The suspense is well written and an integral part of the story -- actually the whole series. We get lots of answers in this book, and they all fit and make sense. Very well written book!!
  • Twilight forever!!

    I was hooked from the get go, only one chapter in and I'm already in love. This book is the story of Mark or better known as Twilight. I already like him because of the other books, but when all his friends are paired off you realize he wants someone too, and that there is a lot more to him than just being everyones comedic relief. Mark and Charlie are on fire, their chemistry is off the charts. I have a major girl crush on Charlie she is a [email protected], and only a woman like her could handle all that is Twilight. I love that Charlie is afraid of sharks, because i know a certain author is too! haha This book deserves way more than 5 stars, is more action packed than the other books in this series, suspenseful, and engaging. #teamtwilight forever!
