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?

Jackson takes a step closer to me, stalking me like I’m his prey as I counter with another step back. Once my back hits the car door … that’s it. He has me pinned and we both know it. He raises his arms, placing them on the frame of the car and caging me in.
His lips brush against my ear when he whispers, “Oh, but your body says otherwise.” His body closes in on mine and the last remaining space between us disappears. Heat floods my core, my face, my body—my lids flutter closed and I take a shaky breath. “Open your eyes, Catherine.”
My Review: 5 stars
What a fantastic book! I loved every character, because they were all important in the over-all story line. The writing was excellent, funny and inappropriate at times just like real life, and then those sexy scenes that make you swoon because Jackson is so real. Jackson, he's an ex-Navy SEAL who stumbles into Catherine's life and makes it so much better. Catherine is so real to me, she's been down the road she's on before, hurt and rejected again when she meets Jackson. He makes her feel things she doesn't want to because she's tired of being the one left behind and hurting. Catherine is a fighter, she just keeps on going, she stumbles along the way more than once, but picks herself up and begins again. Both Jackson and Catherine have their pasts they really don't want to deal with, but sometimes you really don't have a choice, and the past always comes back when you least expect it. I loved the way that Jackson was with Catherine, sweet, caring, yet a complete alpha-male, as expected. I loved the twists in this story, they made it a better, more realistic story. I completely loved this book from the beginning to the end, and can't wait for the next book in this series! Corrine has done a remarkable job with the entire book, and left me a very happy reader.
