“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?
I loved this! Both of the main characters are lovable, I loved the fact that they started as friends then their relationship blossoms into something better, I loved the that they gave each other the solace that they both badly needed.
Hunter just like most of the hero in any romance book is a hot, good looking and popular but I liked that unlike most of the hero he's not cocky and bossy in an alpha kind of way, instead he's patient with Lorrie and he offered friendship first when he realize that Lorrie is different from the other girls plus he rescued the kittens! how adorable is that?!
Lorrie, our girl even-though damaged is a fighter and not a pushover , she knows what's better for her and she tries hard to do that no matter how hard thus fighting her attraction to Hunter.
I enjoyed and loved and I might re-read this sooner than I planned. I recommend this to all romance book readers. Can't wait to read the book 2.
