My recommendation: Read it
Summary from goodreads.com: 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?
HOLY CLIFFHANGER!!! Ugh, I hate cliffhangers, especially at the end of such a good book!
Catherine is a woman scorned, with some serious daddy issues. Jackson is an alpha male, who is not taking no for an answer.
There were several times during this book where I wanted to punch Catherine in the face. Her insecurities were really annoying. I also didn’t really understand the ending -which was very frustrating. So not only was this book ended on a cliffhanger, it left way too many unanswered questions. BUT, it was a good story, and I freaking LOVED Jackson. He was such a great character – I loved him right away. Catherine is a bit harder to like – she is kind of annoying and insecure, but she really redeemed herself in the end. I liked the supporting characters as well – all of Jackson’s buddies, Ashton and Taylor. I hope the second book comes out soon because I need closure, like now!
