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 favorite type of Book Boyfriend are the fighters! I don't know what it is about men that fight, but it's a turn on for me. So when I saw that Wrecked was available on Netgalley I jumped on it!
We are introduced to Lorrie as she is reflecting on her messed up life while looking upon the frozen over lake. She gets startled and accidentally falls into the lake. Her puffy coat pulls her under and she can't push up from the ice. She finally breaks the surface only to find out how far she went out. Panicking she starts flailing around only to realize somebody had jumped in to save her and was causing him to go under as well. Once they get out of the lake, she gets a good look and she is freaked out because the man is gorgeous.
He takes her back to his apartment to get her warmed up. And this is where Lorrie sneaks out wearing his clothes because she is afraid of how attracted she is to him. They didn't even exchange names, so she had no clue who he was. She runs into him a couple days later and finds out he is an MMA fighter.
Hunter is infatuated with Lorrie, but she is afraid of what would happen if he ever broke her heart so she says they must remain friends, nothing more. Hunter agrees only because she is so different. The more she gets to know Hunter, the more she falls for him. Finally after what felt like forever they become a couple! And this is where the story kind of lagged for me, it just seemed like too much sex and not enough relationship growth. I kept reading and I'm glad I didn't give up because the rest of the story totally made up it!
And the box of kittens was enough to melt my heart! The bond they share with each other over the kittens is truly magical, and is a major part of the book. Can these 2 people who have major past issues be able to have a good relationship or is the past going to sneak in and wreck them apart?
Priscilla rocked this story and I can't wait for book 2, like I need it right now. Seriously.
Overall I give Wrecked 4.5 Stars
