Summary –

“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?

RESCUED (WRECKED BOOK TWO: Coming Early 2014) (Thanks to for the summary)

My Thoughts –
My initial reaction: Goddamn Korean ending...

That said, I really enjoyed this story.  It was well constructed, fast paced and easy to read.  The ending made me want to throw my Nook across the room, but the rest of the story was great. 

I enjoyed the characters of Lorrie and Hunter.  I thought their chemistry was off the charts and so were their “scenes”.  I also enjoy the aspect of the cage fighting, it just soooooo hot!! 

This story is chalked full of angst, self-doubt and smexy hot lovin’.  All my favorite characteristics of a NA novel.  My issue is the ending.  Seriously – Korean ending.  Ugh.  Other than that, great job to the author for making me react so strongly towards this couple’s HEA, or not so HEA...can’t wait for the rest of this story!!
