A New Adult Romance Novel by USA Today Bestselling Author Priscilla West
“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 exactly the 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?


Lorrie and Hunter were fun to read. I enjoyed their 'parenting' of the kittens the most. This is my first story to read by Priscilla West and I really liked her writing style and how everything flowed. It was an easy read, I finished it practically in one sitting.

 There were a few things that bothered me -  One, I felt like Lorrie was a tad bit of a baby when it came to telling Hunter about her past. While the topic IS a big deal, the reality of it wasn't and she was delaying the conversation for childish reasons. My other major issue with the story was the massive giant cliff hanger at the end. I know that people write cliff hangers so they will go read the second book but i don't even feel like this story had a full ARC because of that.

Overall this story is a 3.5 star. It was very enjoyable but I had some issues that really took away from the story. I would deff want to read the next book in the series though.
