Blurb:


"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?


Maya's Review

Lorrie has just returned back to college after taking time off following the tragic deaths of both parents, her mother by murder and her father by suicide. She is still grieving albeit now in a numbed out state. But at least she's looking forward to being back at college.

Hunter saves her from drowning when she accidentally falls into a lake in winter. He is a man fighting his own demons and though Lorrie realises they shouldn't be together soon things heat up between them. Unfortunately their relationship is a disaster waiting to happen and of course it happens.

While I was sympathetic to Lorrie's plight, I can't say I was enamored by Hunter. And the truth remains that two damaged people cannot cure each other. I can only hope there is individual growth and healing before they try to get back together in the next book.

Note: This book ends in a cliff-hanger. The next book Rescued is available now.
