Wrecked (Wrecked #1) by Priscilla West
Release Date: 16 December 2013
“There would be no happy ending for us. He was too damaged. I was too broken.”
Two years ago, Lorrie’s mother was murdered. But that wasn’t the end of it. Reeling from the tragedy, Lorrie’s father spiraled into alcohol, depression, and finally suicide.
The two most important people in Lorrie’s life are both gone but she’s still alive.
Trying to recover from the tragedy, Lorrie returns to campus, ready to pick up the pieces of her life. All Lorrie wants is to get back to “normal.”
Then she meets Hunter. The man, the legend, “the Hammer.”
Hunter is a cage fighter who takes on every fight like he’s got nothing to lose. His life is a tangled mess of girls, booze, and fist fights. And while it may seem like he’s got a devil-may-care attitude, he’s fighting a private cage-match with a monster he can’t defeat.
Lorrie knows that Hunter is the exact type of guy she should stay away from, especially in her fragile state, but Hunter has other ideas.
As Hunter and Lorrie grow closer together, will they be able to overcome their pain and heal each other? Or will they both end up wrecked?
My Opinion 3 STARS
**Copy Provided by NetGalley and Blackbird Publishing for an honest review**
Bits of this book are good, the other bits are annoying.
Take our main character for example. Lorrie claimed that she didn't want a relationship with anyone, but she VERY quickly, when she wasn't playing push-you-pull-you with Hunter fell into a relationship with him. Yes, she was honest in what she wanted with thinking with her head, but with Hunter around and her body responding she soon became confused.
Hunter had anger issues and it was annoying never to know why until near the end when we get a chapter from his point of view. He does make a stupid decision, but with everything having happened in such a short space of time between them, do we really expect them to have told the other everything about themselves?
Even though I'm glad I had a chance to read this I am annoyed with the cliff hangar,. I know authors use this to keep you on tender hooks until the next book, but when you have to wait months for the next book, by then you have forgotten what has happened.
