This book picks up where the first one left off. After the emotional break-up Lorrie and Hunter went through at the end of the first book, we finally get to see what Hunter was keeping secret. Why he was so determined to keep fighting and to keep pieces of himself from Lorrie. He didn't want to be a burden to her, but he didn't realize that she needed to have no barriers between them.
This book took you on a journey as they struggled to be there for each other, while dealing with their own struggles. It shows the fine line we walk when we are drowning in our own pain and suffering, yet trying to keep it from those we need and love the most. The struggle to be strong, and to remain independent, is a real one. This story addresses issues that most people will never have to deal with, and it does it in the most beautiful way possible.
I must admit that I wanted to thrown my Kindle several times while reading this book. It was just that powerful. While this series has some similarities to other fighter stories, this book was completely different in the most important ways. This story had me captivated from beginning to the end. The author certainly has a beautiful novel on her hands here, and I cannot recommend it enough.
First and foremost, I absolutely love Priscilla West. I was a little apprehensive about reading "Wrecked" because I feel like the whole bad boy MMA thing was done well by "Beautiful Disaster" and that was my measuring stick against the others written on the same story line. That said, I fell in love with Hunter and Lorrie and their story. I was so excited about "Rescued" that when Ms. West announced on Facebook that she released it a few hours early, I came straight to the Kindle store and picked it up. At 10:00 on a Sunday night. Who needs to function at work, right?
So I buy the book and dive in. Lorrie and Hunter had broken up at the end of the last book with her running away from him, while he was broken and bleeding. That alone had already knocked Lorrie down a couple of pegs in my opinion. So, we pick up the story with Lorrie at her shrink's office and her back with her aunt and uncle. Her uncle picks her up from her appointment, and takes her home, to find Hunter at her house. They go for a walk and after all of a two minute conversation, they're back together. Cool. Whatever.
Hunter winds up staying at Lorrie's house. The guy has MS, gave up school, becomes the handy man for her aunt and uncle all to stay with Lorrie and try to work things out. What does Lorrie do? She closes Hunter out and wines the whole time about her obsession with Marcos. I get it, the guy killed her mom, and she needs answers, but the guy she loves has a major MS attack, can't walk, is wheelchair bound, and all she can think about is Marcos. I mean, seriously? I spent most of the book wanting to slap her and tell her to put her big girl panties on...
The book also left a lot of loose ends. It never retouched on the way Gary and Lorrie left things, and Ada makes a small appearance in the book to call Lorrie on a cell phone she'd just gotten to yell at her. And the kittens!! It was such a huge part of the first book, and I feel like they were thrown in as an afterthought. Even the epilogue, which is usually one of my favorite parts of a book because it gives you a conclusion, a glimpse of how everything wound up was only a few months later and still left me hanging.
Wrecked was amazing, and it was nice to know how things (kinda) wound up with Hunter and Lorrie, and maybe expectations were too high. It just wasn't what I thought it would be....
