A Mature New Adult Romance(18+) Novel by USA Today Bestselling Author Priscilla West
“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 exactly the 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?
*I received this book for review from the publisher via Netgalley, but this in no way affects my thoughts expressed in this review*
This was my first book by Priscilla West, but it won't be my last. I was immediately pulled into Lorrie's story, and automatically connected with this character. Soon after, I felt the same about Hunter. These characters have both seen the ups and downs of life and yet they keep pushing on.
After a few chance meetings these two become friends, but it's obvious to everyone(including them) that there is more to their relationship. The only problem is everyone has their secrets, and those secrets threaten to pull these two apart. I won't give any spoilers, though.
This book is a great read and I can't wait to read the rest of the series! All I'm going to say is, Priscilla West knows how to write a good cliffhanger ending. I can't wait to see how this story unfolds!
