Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Awesome Series, Awesome Narration!"

    I didn't see this book coming! I really had hopes for Ashton but I have to say I LOVED Mark's story! We got to see a serious side of Mark, he is a super sexy dirty talking lover and extremely protective of the people in his life. Charlie is kind of a bad ass but doesn't really seem like it until later in the book. The banter between Mark & Charlie was awesome! I love that we got a glimpse into their future too! I am very sad that I'm caught up and have to wait for book 6.

    I was expecting this book to be about Ashton so now I'm hoping #6 will be but I think the author will have to work very hard to make me like Quinn ;)

    Awesome Narration for this entire series!

    "Great Listen with NO Cliffhanger"

    I hesitated to listen to this book because I enjoyed Consolation and Conviction so much that I didn't want to listen to an incomplete story; thinking this book is the start of a new series! But I gave in to temptation and listened and I'm so glad I did!

    I love Marc and Charlie... THE END...

    SO WORTH IT

    "Five stars all over! Mark and Charlie are perfect!"

    I absolutely LOVED this book. Mark Twilight Dixon was sheer smart ass perfection and Charlie has to be one of my fav heroines of all time. She takes his jabs and comes back twice as hard. Andi Arndt's narration is sublime, as usual. She makes you feel all the feels. Happiness, sadness, grief, devastation, hot and horny, it's all there. Zachary Webber is a new narrator for me and he also did a great job. I liked Beholden and Beloved, loved Consolation and Conviction, but Defenseless is spectacular. The banter, action, hotness, and drama were all very well balanced. Excellent!

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "PERFECTION.. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE AT ITS FINEST"

    I really don't know how this book skipped my attention for all these months but I'm so so glad that I eventually found it because it had EVERYTHING that I love in a good well written romance. As CIA Agent Charlie and ex Navy Seal Mark start their fast-paced relationship you can feel the intense chemistry that these two characters have for each other as they begin their action-packed, funny, sexy and intoxicating push/pull relationship.

    Charlie is a feisty, strong willed, stubborn, independent woman who falls foul of someone's puppetry within the CIA which forces Charlie off her current case but she isn't about to stop.. she needs answers. Which leads her to, one again, cross paths with Mark who now works as an Agent for a security firm that has ties with her investigation and Charlie hopes that together they may be able to get those answers. However, Mark is also stubborn, strong willed.. and also determined - determined to have Charlie.. but unfortunately for him she is determined to keep their relationship to business only. So, regardless of what Charlie 'thinks' she wants, the smooth, dirty talking, panty melting Alpha has other ideas and Mark slowly breaks down all her defences. But troubled waters lay ahead because someone's watching them closely and making plans of his own.

    A highly entertaining dual POV relationship that has suspense and intrigue mixed in with the humorous bickering, quick witted banter, romance and sexy times. This listen totally blew me away and exceeded my expectations.. largely due to the fact that Corinne Michaels knows just how to write THE perfect hero. Well, coupled with the fact that the narrators brought each scene and its characters to life.

    Worth a credit? There are few books that keep me from the next new release of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.. but this one did because I just couldn't pause on the action, the characters, the story and the feel good romance. A perfect listen and YES very very creditworthy.

    "Really enjoyable"

    First let me say the banter in this book is off the charts awesome. Mark is that hilarious friend you want in your life that teases everyone and makes everyone laugh. THEN HE's the dirty talking lover who makes having a spare stash of fresh panties in your bag a necessity. DAMN DAMN DAMN #TeamMark100%

    I was a bit confused at times. The story referenced past deeds that sounds like they had their own book but the author said this is a standalone. It is but knowing what books are in the series and what order they are read in would help. Audible says this is book 5 but goodreads doesn't have a book order.

    I was kinda getting annoyed with Charlie because she was suppose to be kickass and she kinda was but when it mattered she had the drop on her. Either way i really really enjoyed this story. I want Mark.....lol.

    Story - 3.5
    Narrators - 3.5 Both narrators did a great job.

    "Excellent narration!"

    I LOVE both Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber, but unfortunately not even their excellent narration could save this mediocre story. They can't help the sometimes awful writing that had to come out of their mouths.

    "Best plot line of Corinne Michaels' books so far"

    This book has the best plot line of her books so far. Twists in it keep it more than a love story. Really enjoyed it. Culminates the other books in the series well. All ties together nicely.

    "Great story!"

    I loved Mark and Charlie! They were both headstrong and feisty and their banter and arguments were adorable yet entertaining. I loved that this also had a little bit of mystery. Great story overall - good narration!

    "I did not finish this story ......"

    I did not finish this book .... iI was so distracted by the constant explanation of characters and their relationships with each other (from past books) that I could not become interested in this story at hand.

    I liked the premise of the story line ....and as with so many books lately that are marked "stand alone" in a series ... this one is so busy explaining the correlation of characters from previous books in the series that you decide it's not worth reading because of TOO MUCH EXPLANATION ..... I do not find this book worth of a credit or sale. The performance was fine ... like I said I like a story to be interesting .... this one fell flat.

    "Loved"

    Absolutely loved this book. Loved loved loved the chemistry between Charli and Mark. Loved how strong Charli is inside and out. Mark is an ex navy seal who gets involved in covert rescue missions behind enemy lines. Charli is CIA. Their lives cross and both Charli and Mark must learn to trust each other, that, and try to control their sexual urges. A wonderful story of intrigue, love, lust and secrets. Love the humour, Mark is encouragable, he is just he right mix of sexy, funny, and hot alpha male. Can they find the traitor and keep their relationship intact?
