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. 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.
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.
Wrecked was a really good story. Right from the start you get pulled into the book and understand Lorrie and Hunter. They’re both dealing with tragic past and trying to figure out their futures. I liked how Lorrie actually decided to be friends with Hunter instead of throwing herself at him like a lot of main characters with these storylines. It was refreshing to see the time they took to form a friendship and it was believable. I was swept into the story and felt just as heartbroken as Lorrie and Hunter when things began to crumble around them.
I really liked Hunter. I was intrigued by his story and wanted to know more. He was interesting and really intense. I enjoyed how sure of himself he was and what he wanted from Lorrie. Lorrie on the other hand was very hard for me to like. In the beginning I understood especially with her family history but her constant back and forth with her feelings got annoying. Even when it came to gossip I got sick of her. One second she didn’t want to feed into it then she would be upset over something she heard.
Her jealously of Hunter being around other girls was also irritating when she kept telling him she only wanted to be friends. I did enjoy how she wanted to friends first but I just didn’t like her contradictory actions.
While you’re reading you will be routing for them the whole time and shocked to find out how the book ends. The conclusion to their story will be in the next book Rescued and I will definitely be reading that. I would recommend this as a read for all those NA Romance fanatics out there.
There would be no happy ending for us. He was too damaged. I was
too broken. Things between us shouldn’t have gone this far in the first place.
Then this never would’ve happened. If only I’d been stronger. If I only I hadn’t
said those words, if only we were different people—not the lost, scared and
broken people that we were . . . then we wouldn’t be in this wreck
