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?
At first, I thought WRECKED was just going to be another one of those love stories but, boy, was I wrong. The first chapter or two has a sense of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, whom I love, and I really am always looking for something more unique than the same old same old. So, I admit that I thought “here we go again” and then I realized that I had been reading for more than a couple of hours and I was almost at the end and it is NOTHING like Beautiful Disaster and I am crying like a huge baby. DO you see where I am going….I WAS WRECKED!!!! COMPLETELY WRECKED and it ended and I am crying in my pillow...NO NO NO….
So, with all that said. Hunter is a hunky MMA fighter/student with a secret and Lorrie is a student with a very broken past. No Spoilers… and I know it sounds like every other love story but it is NOT!!! Oh and the ending???!!!! The good news is that after stalking, I mean researching the series, the next book RESCUED by Ms. West will be out February 24, 2014. This is a series that I highly recommend…
WRECKED by Priscilla West receives 5 out of 5 Platypires for surprising me and making me cry!!!
TEXAS HUGS and HAPPY READING!!!
