Oliver is tortured by the loss of his wife and child. He barely manages to live, and cannot enjoy anything in life. He is bitter and often drinks and seeks out physical fights to escape his pain, if only as a temporary fix. Coming back to his hometown for his nephew’s baptism only aggravates and compounds his destructive feelings and behaviors.
Emma came from a privileged life, but found herself pregnant at 18. When her mother suggests she abort the baby, Emma leaves home and begins her new life as a single mother. While things are not easy, especially when caring for a special needs child, Emma has created a good and happy life for her and her daughter Ivy.
While both Oliver and Emma have changed significantly from when they last knew one another in high school, they are drawn to one another in ways that neither can seem to control. While the sexual chemistry is off the charts, there is more happening beneath the surface. Emma is falling fast and wants more than a sexual relationship. In the beginning, Oliver just wants an escape, but slowly finds himself wanting and needing more from Emma . . .but is afraid and unsure of how to deal with those feelings when still grieving for his wife and child.
This book is extremely touching. The characters are amazing. The author did a fantastic job of making Oliver’s pain feel very real to the reader. His struggles are easy to understand and identify with. Emma is independent and strong and everything that Oliver needs . . . he just doesn’t realize it. Her relationship with her daughter is beautiful and special. I adored watching Oliver slowly let down his barriers to this unique little girl so that she could touch his heart in ways he never expected. I also loved watching Oliver transform into the man he could be once he was able to accept and deal with the life that fate has given to him.
You know I actually quite enjoyed this book. It was a rocky start to begin with and took a little to get in to but once I was there I couldn't seem to stop until the book finished.
Oliver and Emma had a relationship full of intense passion and love. It was beautiful to watch their relationship grow into an unstoppable force.
Emma was Olivers life raft. Along with her daughter Ivy, they helped Oliver to see his worth. To see that he can Live and not just exist like he had been doing.
This was a beautiful and heartwarming story of a second chance at life. Learning to move forward after your world is turned upside down in the worst possible way and you don't want to live.
From the characters, to the story, and the emotions that poured from the pages, I enjoyed every minute of it.
Watching the unspoken bond form between Oliver and Ivy, to the pure unconditional love Emma has for her was truly beautiful to see.
I couldn't recommend this book enough. LM Lee has done an amazing job with Damaged.
I really enjoyed this debut book by LM Lee. I think the name is extremely fitting and I love that LM Lee has made a mark with this one right from the start. The only thing I felt this book could have given me different than it did was the beginning could have picked up a bit faster. I times I felt it dragged a bit which is the only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. I can not wait to see what else LM is going to give us in the future!
It's my first book by this author, and I loved it!
At first I wasn't sure how I felt about the book, but then Ivy and her health issues came along and it's just melted my heart!!
