Wrecked (Wrecked #1) by Priscilla West



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 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?



REVIEW:


I hate giving a low reviews, it makes me feel like a horrid person. But as a reviewer I ALWAYS want to tell the truth.

I started this book with high expectations. It has a A LOT of potential, I liked the plot and loved the ending and I will be reading the second book (I feel that one will be better).

(I won't be writing anything that you can find out in the blurb your self)

This book is written from Lorrie's POV. She's had awful luck, with her mothers murder and her fathers suicide and then everyone knowing about it a school, due to it being on the news.

The one thing I don't get is how horrible people are about it, saying she's a 'stone faced bitch' I just didn't get it. I would have understood a few horrible people, but personally for me, it would have been more realistic for people to be pitying. People don't usually start slagging you off about your dead parents, and this seemed to be a theme throughout the book.

Another quearie I had was the amount of times Hunter, our heroe, apologised to Lorrie. I personally felt it was Lorries fault and she would only apologise after Hunter poured his heart out and took the majority of the blame. In truth, Lorrie could be a hypocrite.

BUT

I loved the ending leading to the next book and the plot did pick up momentum as it drew to a close. I liked having hunters POV towards the end and yes, there was one bit where Hunter did act like an ass, but he seemed to redeem himself, like Lorrie did.

The characters are flawed and in some ways realistic. I just wished for a little more detail on them talking but their affection is evident within Miss West's writing. I loved that they both loved eachother.


P.S: I hate Ada she's such a:


And I'm sure you will too!
