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....
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.
