I enjoyed this book. I loved the quick wit and banter between the H&h. The characters were well developed and it was nice to see how some of the ones from previous books were doing.

I love love this story. Mark's sarcasm is hilariously quick witted no matter the situation. Charlie is just as bad and is a softie under her hard exterior. Love it!

This book in completely stunning. An effortlessly perfect mixture of suspense, sex, and love. This is the second Corinne Michaels book I've read and you can gaurantee I will be revisit the books that I missed in between. Defenseless meets up with the the group that has fought together and found love together, yet with all of the happily ever afters there is unspeakable heartbreak and danger still hovering over them. In order to give everyone closure and safety Mark, the resident dirty-humored and mouthed bad boy teams up with Charlie, a CIA operative on leave. Both have too much to lose to not complete this mission, and day by day the passion they spark in one another becomes more impossible to deny. Mark and Charlie are dynamic together and apart. But of course I loved it better when they were together. I sincerely could not get enough of the story and the smexy times. Defenseless offered all of the good stuff in one neat heart achingly wow-ing book. I HIGHLY encourage anyone who has not read a Corinne Michaels book to get started with this on ASAP. I promise you will NOT be disappointed. It's just not possible. Mark and Charlie will have you laughing, sighing, and searching for a fan (or 10). Defenseless is a true winner this year, and made me a fan of this author for life! Happy Reading! *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

“That’s crazy,” I say as I wipe my eyes. “So are we. I’m crazy about you, Charlie. I can’t explain it. It’s ridiculous, because half the time I don’t even like you.” If you have read the previous books by Corinne Michaels you have already gotten a taste of Mark...he is just basically hilarious! This book does him justice and gives you more behind the arrogant, tough exterior. I especially like his being the "Reverend"... While suspense romance isn't on the top of my reading list, this was a nice change of pace. If you haven't read the other books by Corinne Michaels, I suggest you do so. "The Consolation Duet" and "The Belonging Duet" are four of my very favorite books. While you can read Defenseless without reading the others, you will miss the background stories which make the reading of Defenseless so much better.

Loved this can't wait for her next book she never disapoints!

Secrets, seduction and danger! This was an edge of your seat kind of read, ending with a twist I never saw coming. The dynamic of the alpha-male and alpha-female is intense. I loved the back and forth, push and pull, love-hate relationship. It made for not only an engaging read, but an entertaining one as well. I sort of felt that I was at a bit of a disadvantage as the secondary characters had their stories told in previous books that I haven’t read, but this book is a standalone and you will make it through just fine without reading them.

Loved Defenseless! Corinne Michaels takes you in a rollercoaster ride with emotions with Defenseless. One moment you're laughing and then you're crying, while in between you screamed a lot and held your breath in suspense. You won't be able to stop reading this amazing book! I love her writing style. It is flawless and the reader easily connects with the characters and the story. I also loved that the story was told from Charlie's and Mark's POVs. Mark is a hero. At first he seems to be a funny, sexy and charming guy, but he his also very loyal and hard working. You can't help but fall in love with him. Charlie is a strong and fierce woman. She is a badass with lots of charm and sass. I loved Mark and Charlie together. They are explosive together! If you love a romance full of drama, suspense, laughter and sexy scenes, Defenseless is the book for you!

Mark and Charlie are off the charts Hot! The chemistry is fantastic and their banter is entertaining! I love Mark, he is sweet but naughty and he knows what he wants and will stop at nothing to get it. Will Mark and Charlie be able to figure out the threat to both of their lives before it destroys them both? Will Mark be able to break through Charlie's walls and show her what love and trust is all about or will the danger surrounding them destroy it all? Loved it, it was entertaining and full of hot and sexy scenes, characters are fabulous both main and supporting. I love this group and hope their will be more!

This is my first ever read from Corinne Michaels and I loved it. I am totally hooked and have a lot of catching up to do. Mark and Charlie's story is incredible. I was not even half way done with Defenseless and I was so intrigued with the character of this story and the bond that they have developed I had to get the other books right away. Yes , this is a standalone, and it can be read, loved, and understood without reading the prior books, but once you read Defenseless you will be hook. Defenseless is all about trust, friendship, love, loyalty, sacrifice, and battling your fears. What I loved the most about the story is the unbreakable bond that this amazing group has. This is a must read. ***ARC Provided in exchange for my honest review***
