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?
My 4.5 Star Review
“His voice is empty as the words tumble out of his mouth. “What we have just isn’t enough, Catherine. It’s better this way.”
Without another word he turns and walks away, ending the last five years of what I thought was the beginning of our life together.
There is nothing to hold me together as I crumble to the ground in complete devastation. Not enough. All over again.
Catherine has guarded her heart since her father walked out on her when she was little. After her fiancé shattered her world, she instantly blames herself for not being enough. *insertadonishere*
After having some drinks with friends, she accidently ends up in the arms of a man that sets her entire body on fire but being the stubborn woman she is, she thanks him and walks away. Little does she know, she will be seeing her knight in shining amour on a daily basis. Catherine decides to break all of her rules and give things a chance.
Jackson is a former navy seal a fantastic business man and he finds himself mesmerized by Catherine.
Fate has a funny way of making things work. Jackson can see how hurt Catherine has been and he vows never to hurt her but he has some secrets of his own.
“I don’t know where it is, but I know I want to be around you. I know I’ve thought about you every day and every night since we’ve met. There are a lot of things we need to learn about each other. But you fell into my life and I won’t let you fall out. So whatever this is… it’s ours.”
I loved the characters, Catherine is beautiful, smart but guarded. She feels as if she will never be enough for anyone. Jackson is gorgeous, smart and confident man and he is also guarded. He goes after what he wants and what he wants is Catherine, unfortunately due to his past, he feels that he fails the ones he loves. Both complete each other in ways they never realized but they also try and keep their distance. It seems as when things go well a bump in the road appears.
Corrine Michael has a winner on hands. This book captures all of the emotions, I was hooked within the first chapter. Be prepared for heartache, excitement, trust, adventure and love. Did I mention the freaking cliffy? Oh, yeah the ending will definitely have you DEMANDING more. Such a Fantastic read!
