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?

Catherine has never thought she was enough so when she meets Jackson its a bit of a struggle for her to let him in. Her douche of fiance and her father have made her doubt her self worth. That's until one day she falls into the lap of a VERY sexy ex-Navy Seal, Jackson Cole. Catherine unfortunately is guarding her heart so will she ever really let Jackson in?
I really enjoyed this story and the flow was great. I found myself laughing so many times. I love Catherine's friends. I seriously want to throat punch her douche of an ex-finance, Neil.
My heart broke for Catherine with her struggle of not feeling she is worthy of a mans love since two important men in her life have abandoned her. Jackson tries to help Catherine see her worth but she fights it so darn hard which wants me to shake her up a little.
I have to come out and say that I absolutely LOVE that one of my favorite movies was referenced. Seriously, Empire Records has to be one of the best moves ever! lol I loved all the banter between Catherine and Jackson. And, again her friends were beyond the best! Jackson is perfect although he is fighting his own demons, he is just the man that she needs to let in. I can't wait for the rest of Catherine and Jackson's story!
I give it 4 bookmarks!
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.”
