“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 absolutely LOVED this story until about 80% through. The last few scenes were really hard for me to love because they felt a bit unreal or overdramatic… BUT I will say I absolutely fell in love with Hunter from the very first time we meet his sexy ass. Lorrie is a bit meek for my normal tastes but the way she blossomed in Hunters hands just made me melt.
Both have something they are hiding, but both refuse to let their pasts get in the way of their friendship.. I’ll tell you I’ve never wanted a piece of freaking chocolate as much as I did in one scene.. Once you read the book, you’ll know which scene I’m talking about.
While I thought this was going to be a rugged and rough story, it was actually rather sweet and romantic and touching. I can’t WAIT for the conclusion of this story but I will say that I’m happy it doesn’t end with a cliffhanger and was wrapped up nicely.. doesn’t mean I don’t want the rest!!!
