Publisher's Summary

Not enough. Catherine Pope has never been enough. Every man she has ever loved abandoned her - from her father to her fiancé. She finally accepted the fact she would never be enough to hold any man's heart and soul.
Then Catherine met Jackson Cole.
When her world literally collided with the sexy former Navy SEAL, everything she always believed is turned upside down and left scattered. He made her feel alive and desirable, consumed her with fierceness and loyalty - which completely unnerved her. Jackson got her in a way no one ever had, giving him the power to destroy her.
If she breaks down and gives him what's left of her battered heart - will he protect it? Or will Catherine become an irrelevant part of yet another man's life?
Will she get the one thing that has always evaded her - to finally be someone's beloved?

Fantastic story and performance!

This is a book that will give you one heck of an emotional ride. Excellent storyline and narration. Relatable female and male character. Pure perfection! Cannot wait to finish the second book, too.

Michaels never disappoints.

I have read several of her books and I've enjoyed all. Corinne always has witty and emotional dialog with a surprise twist. Plus, she writes sizzling and emotional love scene. Since, I have read some of her more recent work, this one is not quite as good as some of her others books. The beginning of this books really starts off great, but it gets a bit slow and whiney towards the end of part one. Yet, don't misunderstand, this audio is still really good. I just think her writing and story development have vastly improved with each book. I thought the narrator was good. I really liked the male narrator at the end of the first part and wish he coukd have been more incorporated into this book. Overall, I would give this book 4 stars.

I enjoyed the story, the narration was also fun. Hollie (narrator) captured the emotions perfectly with her words.
Kat was a likeable character but at times she really got on my nerves. the same could be said for Jackson, at first I loved him but towards the end he started to annoy me.
And the ending? what the hell!? not happy with it at all, I hate cliffhangers LOL. I look forward to reading book 2!

Great Listen

Don't get me wrong I love the story and the main characters but I hate it when I am left hanging without book 2!

Apparently book 2 is out but not available on audible. It sucks! Not knowing if they end up together or end up separating for good.

At the end of the chapter, it literally said "TO BE CONTINUED"....please have book 2 soon. It's eating me up not knowing. And I do not wish to read, I prefer to listen.

Another thing, there was a little glitch should try to fix that but overall its a good listen.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the Consolation duet and Defenceless by Corrine Michaels (yes, I know I read out of order!) and so was interested to read this duet. The story was interesting and gave me a background of Cole Security and all the events leading up to Defenceless. I also liked Jackson, he was UBER alpha and very protective and possessive. What I found hard to enjoy was the heroine Catherine. She was whiny and narcissistic. Everything was "oh poor me"! At times I wanted to reach into my kindle and strangle her!! Definitely not a likeable heroine. I enjoyed the narrator Hollie Jackson though !
