A New Adult Romance Novel by USA Today Bestselling Author Priscilla West
"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 exactly the 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 was so surprised at the ending of this book . I actually had tears in my eyes . As I read about why Hunter is the way he is . It actually breaks your heart
I received this ARC from netgalley. I was very happy that I took the chance on this book. I started and finished in a day and a half. I just couldn't put this book down. I wanted to see how things were going turn out. Would Lorrie confide into Hunter more, Would Hunter finally tell us about what his dark secret was revealed. Lorrie and Hunter are such broken people , you just want to hug them and make sure that they were ok. The kittens are what brings them together more and more.
Priscilla weaves a tale that will take you on a rollercoaster ride. Lorrie the strong heroine , who has gone through hell in the media. Hunter the strong MMA fighter , who wants just to save Lorrie . She has them hiding things from each other, parts of themselves that are so broken. I did suffer a book hangover while reading this book. I even read through a migraine trying to attack me. That shows me that this book is a great read. Cause if a book can make me read through a budding migraine. Then it means the author has done her job. To captivate me and keep me invested in the plot and the characters. You want to care for these two characters. You will cry with them and you will yell at your kindle. Saying tell him dammit and tell her dammit. You also will kind a get a little crush on Hunter, he is such a hottie, with his muscles and tattoos . Can you just say yummy . But I digress .
I am now reading book two in the series , started it as soon as I was finished book one. Its jus as good as book one, So please take a chance on this book . You won't be disappointed . I know I wasn't disappointed and neither will you .
I give this book a 4 out 5 stars
