**Review** Wrecked ~ Priscilla West

Synopsis ~ 

“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?

Amy's Thoughts ~ 

**Provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review** 

In Priscilla West's Wrecked, we have the typical tattoed, muscle, bound bad boy, meets the train wreck of a girl trying to put her life back together. 

Return the college, Lorrie Burnham, is trying to move beyond her horrific past and be a "normal" person again. On top of everything else, she has no clue what she wants for the future, and she's completely jaded about everything. NOT just guys, friends, but life in general. She truly got on my nerves a bit. That doesn't happen often. 

Despite all that's crazy in his life, underground MMA fighter Hunter "The Hammer" Jensen falls for Lorrie, even though she's desperate to keep him in the friend-zone. Hunter is the enigma. Hunter is the character that holds this book together. Lorrie had a tendency to go all crazy on him when she heard rumors, when he did things with other girls, yet she wanted to friend-zone him?? Really? One thing I did love about Hunter was he had this "little boy" joy about him about some of the things in the book. You could really feel his vuneralibilty there. 

Hunter knows that Lorrie is broken, but not why. She knows he's this amazingly, sweet guy, but not that he's just as shattered as she is. I really can not wait to read Rescued to find out what happens with Hunter and Lorrie. Overall, great book, one I'll definitely read again.
