“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 had this book for a while on my kindle and finally got to it. But I must say I didn’t really care for it.
Don’t get me wrong the writing was great. This was one example how a great written book can be ruined by one character.
I liked the story, I really did and I liked Hunter. But Lorrie is the one I really didn’t care for, she got more annoying by the pages and there were a few time I thought about not finishing the book but decited to finish it anyways and see how it ends.
Overall, it’s a good book with the exception of Lorrie and I rate it at 3 ★
