“There would be no happy ending for us. He was too damaged. I was too broken.”

The conclusion to USA Today bestselling author Priscilla West’s New Adult Novel Wrecked.

Wrecked should be read before this book.

Lorrie’s semester started off hopeful but ended in disaster. Now, she’s even more lost and confused than she was at the beginning of the year. As Lorrie flees to the only family she has left, she has to come to terms with how things ended with Hunter.

Hunter has fought for so long to keep the truth from Lorrie in an effort to protect her, but that has only caused more heartache and pain.

Realizing his mistake, Hunter has made a vow to get Lorrie back, but is it too late?

Will Hunter be able to overcome his own demons and help Lorrie through her pain, or are they destined to keep hurting each other?

My Review

The first chapter had me worried.

We begin the story with the h lying on her psychiatrist’s couch *loud screeching tires sound* STOP, WHAT? Maybe this is different in other places, but around Chicagoland, I’ve seen a few psychiatrists, and never have I ever been asked to lay on the couch or a chaise lounge. I’m pretty sure that’s a myth, which made me quickly lose faith that this book was going to be any good. Onward, because I rarely give up on a book. Only 2 books in 45 years of reading. SO…

By the third chapter, this book was redeemed as I began crying.

“I nodded, sniffling and still recovering from the shock of seeing him. The pulse pounding through my ears was almost deafening.”

Yeah, I was nodding and sniffling, and recovering from the shock, too. If I were Lorrie, a regular, artist-type girl, I would be in shock every time a hunk like Hunter was in my presence.

Okay, but Hunter isn’t just a mountain of tattooed meat to be admired. Inside is something deeper, a man scared for his life, and just wanting to live a better life of his OWN choosing, not a life path designed by responses to his disease.

I really enjoyed the story throughout the rest of the book. This is by far the best work I’ve read by this author so far. I’ll be reading #6 and #7 in the Forever series soon, and have high hopes they’ll be as good as these two, Wrecked and Rescued.

Chapter Twenty-seven brings in a shocking twist that changes EV-ERY-THING. I felt sick for our MCs to have to move through such a cruel tragedy. But we do get a lovely HEA at the end.

I’m not sure how these Forever books got lumped into one series, because I haven’t noticed ANY crossover characters. Really, I feel books one to three should be combined into one novel. These two could remain a duet, and with them being better quality than the author’s first works, I believe the price to be reasonable. Priscilla West, if you’re reading this, I hope you’ll reconsider the way you present your first three books. They’re a bit of a gouge into your readers’ pocketbooks.
