*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.*
So I’m not going to lie, the main reason I wanted to read Wrecked was because of my love of MMA Fighters. I LOVE them, and I can’t get enough. After reading the synopsis I was hooked.
Lorrie had returned to college, after taking time off, as two years before her mother was murdered, and her father committed suicide. Lorrie wants to move forward with her life, she wants to feel normal again and doesn’t want to feel sad anymore. I liked Lorrie; she had been through a lot of heartache. Emotionally she was a mess, but she did frustrate me with her actions, and stubbornness. So as much as I found myself wanting to hug her I also wanted to shake some sense into her.
Hunter ‘The Hammer ‘Jensen is your typical MMA fighter with muscles and tattoos. He loves to fight. He’s a charmer, funny and sexy with a soft side. Hunter loves the ladies, and the ladies love Hunter. I liked Hunter, but I wished he had been a bit more Alpha at times, as I do love my fighters to be a little rougher around the edges. But that being said I still had a soft spot for him.
Lorrie and Hunter are two souls who have their secrets and issues. They are cute together, and it was interesting and frustrating at times to watch as Lorrie and Hunter’s friendship/relationship develops. It has it fair share of dramas and problems especially with Lorrie’s insecurities.
The storyline had some angsty, touching, funny, sexy, and a few rolling my eyes moments. I felt that it started really well, and I was eager to read more, but somewhere during the middle for me, the story started to frustrate me big time, and I think that was mainly because of Lorrie’s stupid and ridiculous behavior. It picks up again for the last 30%, and I found myself wanting to get to the end, as I was desperate to know what as going to happen.
The story is mainly told in Lorrie’s POV, I liked being inside her head and did feel for her at times. I really liked the last few chapters as we also get Hunter’s POV, which really added to the story. I have to say I loved it, and I wish there had been more as there were a few times that I wanted to know what he was thinking. My heart went out to him after reading them, and discovering his secret.
Overall, I liked this book, it was the first I have read by Pricilla West, and I will definitely read more of her work. It had some secondary characters I liked such as Daniela and Gary, but Ade not so much. There is a cliffhanger ending, and one that certainly left me knowing that Lorrie and Hunter’s story was not over yet. Therefore, I will definitely be reading the next book in the series Rescued, as I want to find out what happens next and to see them get their HEA.
“He was so gorgeous, my breath hitched in my throat. Had I died and gone to heaven?”
“Don’t worry Lorrie, if you’re scared, I’ll protect you with my muscles”
“I had no idea how to be around Hunter Jensen, especially now that I knew he was a badass cage fighter”
"We both don’t know each other well but I know you’re different from other people here. It takes a weirdo to know a weirdo. ~ Hunter
“He made me uncomfortable and comfortable, restless and calm, annoyed and entertained—all at the same time”
"You make me feel alive and I make you feel alive. Let's save each other."~ Hunter
