"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?
I have to start with Hunter. Wow he is a strong, brave, and full of love. He isn’t just all meat and tattoos. He is real, and has hopes and dreams. The fact that he is so dead set on being her rock and taking Lorrie’s pain away, while dealing with his own issues is simply amazing. In Wrecked they couldn’t save one another. They were both running from what needed to be settled in their lives and hoped they could save one another. So she ran and he ran. Neither of them told the full stories. She was open with him, but he was holding back from her. He was to afraid she would leave him if she knew the truth!
Lorrie took a turn for the worst when she received a letter from her step father Marco. Her step father killed her mother, then shortly after her mothers death her father killed himself. After getting that letter she left college and went back to her aunt and uncles. All she wants to do is hide from the world and be alone.
Hunter is dealing with his own issues. He has a huge secret and he has known for a few years. So when Lorrie saw Hunter and Ada come out of the student health department, Lorries was not happy at all. There was a little drama at that time and words were spoken, then lorrie assumed and took off. Hunter never even got to tell her the truth. He was to worried that if Lorrie knew his huge secret she wouldn’t look at him the same.
So now she is back home with her aunt and uncle dealing with every thought in her mind and all she can do is think of Hunter. She is wondering if leaving without telling him the truth was for the best or not. Then she comes home one day from therapy and Hunter is at her front door talking to her aunt.
So now that Hunter has told her the truth, she isnt straying from him and he isnt going to leave her side no matter what. Lorrie wants to be able to be the anchor that Hunter needs and she wants him to be her anchor too. But she know that with him being ill that she will have to be more of an anchor to him, then he will ever be for her. Or at least that is what she thinks.
Now Lorrie wants answers from Marco, so she can move on and focus on her future with Hunter. Hunter is gonna stick around with Lorrie and her family for a few days. Having Hunter there has helped her feel so much more alive then she was feeling before he came for her. Just having his presence in the house was so comforting to her.
She wants to know why he killed her mother?! She wants him to read her blunt and to the point letter, and then maybe just maybe he will have some remorse for what he did to her family.
This book got to me big time. I was 31% into the book and started to ball my eyes out. When Hunter asked Lorrie to help him with his huge secret my heart broke into pieces for him. I am only imagine how hard that would be to ask someone you love to help temporarly save him. Truly heatbreaking! I just want to take Hunter into my arms and never let him go. I also hurt for Lorrie, because she is dealing with so much as is. But her love for Hunter isnt stopping her from doing what she has to do to help protect her man. Even though her soul is breaking with the possiblily of him dying on her. She needs to be strong for him, she is determined not to let her emotions get the better of her.
