Wrecked by Priscilla West
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
“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?
Book was gifted through Netgalley for a honest review
We are introduced to Lorrie returning to college after taking time to deal with the murder of her mother and suicide of her father and well she is still dealing with it. Its hard to bounce back to life after such tragedies.
The book starts off very well with her falling into a frozen lake and saved by Hunter, She then starts this friendship of sorts with him. Hunter is very good looking fella and makes money as a fighter, very well known around campus and a big ladies man. They fight their attraction for each other her more then him, she is in denial for a good part of the book about her feelings for him.
I was not crazy about Lorrie, I got very upset and even bored with her
She doesn't want to be with Hunter but then gets so upset with him when he is with other girls (the whole bj incident) but when he tells her he wants to be with her, like dating, she is like no I don't like you like that. Really Lorrie? She just was too much for me.
Then finally she comes to terms with her feelings and she doesn't even try take things slow, she jumps into bed with Hunter for like a week, (ok, more like 4 days) they didn't leave his apartment. Then there was even one time while they are getting it on and I mean right in the middle of it and he is checking his text messages and then asks Lorrie to answer the text for him, Really!!!!! ??
I struggled with finishing this book and I had to take a few months to come back to finish. I really had giving 2 stars but that's how I feel. :(
