      • Summary from the Goodreads:

High school senior, Claire Reilly’s world revolves around All-Star cheerleading. The Diamond Girls, are                                 gearing up for a major competition, which, if they win will allow them to compete at Worlds for the first time.                           But the  unimaginable happens, and both Claire and her team are rocked by a devastating loss. Determined                        to get to Worlds any way she can, Claire finds help from the last person she imagined would give it—up and                          coming UFC fighter and notorious bad boy, Ryker Vaughn.

Fouled out of the octagon by a dirty opponent and a vicious kick to the head, Ryker loses control when he                             learns he may never fight again. Angry over the loss of his mother, an unsupportive family, and the world in                           general, he gives up, gives in, and unleashes his rage—destroying part of his cousin’s cheer gym in the                                 process. Things go from bad to worse when Ryker is given an ultimatum: help the Diamond Girls compete for                       a bid to Worlds, or go to jail.

Overwhelmed with anger, sadness, and grief, the unlikely pair learn that what you see is not always what you                       get, and that the most difficult losses sometimes open the door to a frightening, yet amazing new future.

“Defenseless is a story of hope, of loss, of friendships, and of fighting to the end.[…] Defenseless was an                                unputdownable read, it made me cry, it made me laugh, and it made me gasp in sock over some                                          revelations.” – Michelle @ Much Loved Books
