“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?

"If it wasn't for you, I'd still be hiding in bed, afraid of the world, afraid of everything. Every time I fell, it was your strength that picked me up off the floor so don't you dare say you're weak. You're the strongest person I've ever met!" She said.

"You still think I'm strong? he asked, "Even after you've seen how scared I am?"  

"There's nothing wrong with being scared. I'm scared too. Maybe I'm even more scared that you, but someone I love once told me that 'when you're in a fight being afraid of getting hit is worse than the hit itself ' "

This story was filled with heartbreaking, raw emotions. In the first book Wrecked, we learned about Lorrie and what she was going through, In Rescued we learn about Hunter and what he's dealing with. We also get to see how they come together and deal with their problems together. 

Rescued started off where Wrecked left off; Lorrie went home to her aunt and cousins. She left school because she had to get her head together and couldn't concentrate on her classes. Hunter came to look for her and her aunt insisted that he stayed at their house. This is where the story takes off as Hunter and Lorrie learn to deal with their problems together. I can't help but feel for these characters. They're dealing with total opposite issues but they're at a stand-still non the less. Lorrie is dealing with loss and Hunter is dealing with the uncertainty of his feature. Each story on it's own would be emotional enough but put them together and OMG that is the feels on overload. I am glad that they have each other because what one lacks the other has plenty of so they're well balanced. 

I think for me it was harder to read Hunter's parts because of everything he was going through. Seeing things from his perspective was a real eye opener, I learned quite a bit. I hated that he would beat himself up because of what was happening to him, but when he got over that then they really started to heal each other. 

I really enjoyed this book, even though it was hard to read at times because of the subject matter in both Lorrie and Hunters cases, this book was really good. It felt real to me, everything came together really well and often times I was so lost in the story I forgot I was reading. I was very happy with the ending because seriously Hunter had me nervous from the middle to the end. I was sitting at the edge of my seat waiting to see if my deepest fear for this character would come true; I wouldn't know how Lorrie would deal with it, and I would hope she wouldn't do what her father did. So, when I read the ending I was extremely happy for myself as well as Lorrie and Hunter.

It was such a pleasure working with Priscilla, she's so great. I wish her the best and I know Rescued is going to be another big hit.
