“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?
This novel was really cute and for it’s super short length it was pretty good. The downfall again, the novel just stopped. There was no conclusion, no subtle slowing it was just full on jump on the breaks the end. It was like the other half of the story wasn’t printed. The novel is about a girl who had a pretty rough year, more than your average person, and she is striving to get back to normal. In doing so she happens across a man, one knows she should stay away from, and the two form an unlikely friendship.
Hunter is your typical bad boy with demons in his closet and though it hadn’t been disclosed in the book I think he definitely is hiding something. I really like Lorrie and Hunter, I just wished the book was developed a bit more, it could have been way longer. But I will read the second one because I’m anxious to find out what happens between the two of them.
