RELEASE DAY BLITZ: ‘Defenseless’ by Corinne Michaels



Some of you read my post gushing about this back when I blogged a sneak peek excerpt a couple weeks ago and I’m excited to say, Mark is here! Mark has met his match in Charlie; possibly his perfect match. The ‘funny man’ of the beautiful dream team of hot, sweet, honorable men has his own story and if you’re a fan of a Corinne Michaels, you definitely don’t want to miss this one.


First, how did I not know that this was about ‘Twilight’! Mark ‘TWILIGHT’, ‘man of the cloth’, ‘bless you my child’ Dixon! Then, I had the wonderful and beautiful surprise of getting to see our other men of the series, ‘Dreamboat’ and ‘Muffin’. *heart happy sigh*

We start with a glimpse back to the mission that has affected all our men’s lives here. This also being the mission they lost Aaron. (Don’t worry, no spoilers) Charlie and Mark meet. Next, it’s one year later.

I absolutely loved Charlie. She is one of the most genuinely written strong, badass women. Other “strong” women many authors claim are their protagonist have bratty or stubborn moments but then do and think things that usually frustrate me and make me question how “strong” these women really are. Nothing about Charlie frustrated me. I think it’s because her layers were real. She is truly tough and hardcore with no bullshit but she’s still a girl who knows her vulnerability. Her inner dialogue was honest and raw but her upbringing and training taught her how to hold her own on the outside. Her outward expressions could be the meaning of life or death.

Mark and Charlie had the best back and forth banter. I’m surprised she didn’t throat punch him sometimes because he loved pushing her buttons and yet you couldn’t NOT love him for it.

What I loved about Mark so much was that, though he’s viewed as “the eternal funny guy”, the constant joker, he has a sensitive side, he’s romantic and so attentive and caring. He loves fiercely.

I enjoyed this from beginning to end. There was mystery, action, sweet moments, funny moments, sexy moments, beautiful family time and great main characters alongside secondary characters you already know and love. These two are a favorite couple in the companion series. Go read it! Do it! Now. 🙂
