Synopsis from Goodreads:
“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?

My Thoughts

No, no, no, no, no.

Wrecked isn't for the faint-hearted ones.

Okay, just kidding. Not really.

Well, okay. Maybe a little bit.

I felt cheated out of the ending. A CLIFFHANGER. A major, mega, hyper, ultra big cliffhanger. When I got to the end of the book, I remember that I kept on shouting NOOOOOO in my head. Although, looking at the bright side, the next book has already been released (yay! Money, please come to me.) I guess I would have known that there was a cliffhanger if only I read some reviews in advance. Oh well.

Wrecked is awesome. Crazy amazing. It had my emotions jumbled up. I spent more than half of the book smiling giddily, as I read the humorous and light exchange between Lorrie and Hunter. The balance of the seriousness was great: alternating and combining the ghosts of their pasts with the present where the both of them attempt to move forward, helped make their story not overwhelming at all. I spent the remaining half being teary-eyed.

Throughout the story, I just kept on thinking how Lorrie and Hunter could have their own HEA. As the both of them shielded themselves from each other, I didn't know how they could still possibly find their HEA. But later on, I realized that that was the key to the development of their relationship. I love how even though they admitted to themselves that they were attracted to each other right from the start, they still remained as friends. It was a good opportunity to see the love between them grow, and the romance was close to perfect.

Yes, close to perfect. I hated how their relationship started from sex. It felt like a gap was left behind between Lorrie and Hunter as friends, and then as boyfriend-girlfriend. For me, it lacked something. Even so, the two of them were so adorable and cute, and I couldn't help but just cheer for the two of them.

There were also times that I got annoyed at Lorrie, especially during the times of her insecurity. Aside from that though, I liked her character. It was realistic, and I admire her for her strong will. On the other hand, I love how caring and supportive Hunter is. LIKE, OMG. <3 Speechless.

The last few chapters really had my heart breaking. I JUST NEED THE NEXT BOOK, okay? Cry. It just can't be happening. Yes, I am in denial. Cry, cry, cry. I am so going to save up money and go buy the next book ASAP. I don't know about you, but when I first read the synopsis, I wasn't really 120% interested in it. But I guess, if it caught your attention even just a little bit, you'd like it too. So, go! Go try it, please?
