This book reminds me of the show Snapped... On that show the spouse gets tired of their significant other somehow and murders him or her when they least expect it. That was how this book was. Sonja just got fed up with her husband and just killed him. The scary pert about it is, thhings like this happen in real life...

Pg.30: Their eyes locked and a lone tear trailed down Sonya's face.
Pg.87: She wiped a way a lone tear from her eyes and returned to the living room...
Pg.100: She wiped away the tears trickling down her face...
Pg.146: Sonya wiped away a stray tear...


This was a complete waste of time, Sonya infected all the characters with her ridiculous tears, so that at some point in this 313 page drama everyone had shed a tear or a million. These people have got to be the luckiest cast of characters i have ever

Okay...I've read several of Adrianne Byrd's books...and I have ENJOYED each and every one I've read to date...however, this is the first one I found myself wanting to skip a head throughout...it's a little slow-paced at times...that being said...for those who may not know this is a REPRINT of her earlier work...and her writing ability has DEFINITELY improved since this book...the heroine is quite ANNOYING in the beginning...but eventually she grows on you (a little...lol)...the rest of the cast ...more

I LOVED THIS BOOK, IT WAS FULL OF ACTION, INTRIGUE, MURDER AND A LOVE STORY WAS THROWN IN AS A BONUS. I DON'T THINK THAT I HAVE GIVEN ADRIANNE THE CREDIT SHE DESERVES BECAUSE AS I WENT THROUGH ONE OF MY MANY BOXES OF BOOKS TODAY I REALIZE THAT I HAVE READ QUITE A FEW BOOKS BY HER.

YOU KNOW THAT I DON'T LIKE GIVING AWAY TOO MUCH OF THE STORY LINE BUT AS YOU READ THIS BOOK BE PREPARED BECAUSE ONLY A FEW OF THE CHARACTERS ARE WHO OR WHAT THEY SEEM TO BE. SO I SUGGEST GRABBING THIS BOOK WHEN YOU HAV

This was an awesome and very suspenseful story. I am glad that Dwayne was able to help Sonya see that all men are not like her very abusive father and brother-in-law! This story held my attention from start to finish trying to solve the ongoing action that led from one person to another. In the end, true love was deserved! I did however, wondered what happened to Gaetano and the coin?

This book was fantastic from start to finish. It had just the right amount of suspence with a sprinkle of romance. This book originally came out in 97, so its funny to read about the characters and their beepers, and dropping quarters in pay phones. It really is amazing how far we have come. Ms. Byrd does it again, she is truly an extremely gifted writer.

Loved it!

Defenseless was a great read from the beginning to end. I love when I find books like this. The kind that you can't put down. I fell asleep with my kindle in my hand and woke up trying to get my read on. Great job!!

Really disappointed in the characters and there was nothing between the two main characters. The heroine was not likable at all and the hero was just as unapproachable. I liked the daughter but the entire book left me unsatisfied and missing the two hours I lost on it.

At first I was really enjoying the book. It had plenty of twists and turns and it kept me guessing. But towards the end I started to lose my interest because too much was going on. I enjoyed the drama butt the ending really lost me and this one is not one of my favorites by Miss Byrd

Silly dialogue, ridiculous scenes, one unbelievable, twisty plot--but I'll admit, I was really entertained. 3 stars for that!
