New York Times and USA Today Best Seller L. Wilder presents a new romance series where the broken find their redemption.
Every man has his weakness. She was mine.
The job was simple- get the girl and bring her home, but with one look, she became my obsession. The blonde, blue-eyed beauty with the sinful curves wasn't mine to keep, but I wasn't about to let her go. I was determined to have her, no matter the consequences.
She was the only one who could calm the beast that raged inside of me. So, I risked everything and did what had to be done - for her.
Nathan James was every girl's fantasy- rich, powerful, and hot beyond words. He saved me during my darkest hour. Like me, he was damaged, scarred by the memories of a horrible past. I saw the way he looked at me, like a predator about to take his prey, but as much as I craved his touch, I wanted something more. I wanted his heart.
I'm afraid I've just exchanged one hell for another.
Will their love heal the wounds of their past, or will they both remain damaged goods?
While Damaged Goods is the first in a new series, the main characters were introduced in the Satan's Fury MC series. This is a full-length standalone novel filled with romance, suspense, and a lot of heart. I'm a firm believer that bad boys need love, too. Damaged Goods is intended for mature audiences only due to the explicit language and violence.
I have to say that I am really enjoying this new series and the previous ones with the Satan's Fury MC members.Even though Nitro is not part of them Satan MC Series itself he is connected to them and like family to them. Tristen on the other hand is already part of the MC and she is family.
I have to say that Nitro was my favorite character this time around but I may have already been half way in love with him myself from being in Big's story.Who am I kidding I was head over heals for him when he saved Tristen and that child from the life of sexual slavery in the previous stories.
I was drawn to Nitro from the onset of the story and not only that I am drawn to the dark and dangerous bruting type. Nitro is such a wounded soul who has cut himself off from living as well as feeling and the only thing you want for him is for him to stopping hurting.It truly broke my heart see him just existing and that he only thinks about revenge.
Tristen I loved as well as she amazed me at how strong she was especially after the tortures she escaped from and what could have been her life. Nitro was her savior and that is how they met.She seems to be more confident and stronger then she was even before her kidnapping.I loved her she was feisty,sweet,kind,a little bit wounded as well but intent on going forward with life instead of wallowing in her pain and suffering she endured in her past.Thats what I loved about her most she wanted to move on and kept the past in the past and just wanted to move forward and live her life once again.She will always suffer the nightmares and life will not be always the easiest but she is determined to make herself happy again.
Tristen is going to be Nitro's savior just by being the kind and caring person she is as well as being strongest of them both meaning emotionally not physically. I loved that Tristen was a complicated character in personality but is dangerous as well and lives a life of uncertainty making him even more intriguing to read about.
I loved seeing this couple fall in love as they both needed healing and happiness in their lives. Tristen and Nitro's road to falling in love was not an easy journey and at times Tristen was wondering whether their relationship was worth sticking around for or was she just in for more heartbreak?
I loved the story from cover to cover as the characters were so different from one another yet had a lot in common.The story was filled with love romance and healing as well as intrigue and revenge . I was rooting for a couple seeking their happy ever after. These were two lost souls who both really deserved to find a little bit happiness as life up to that point had dealt them a lot of unhappiness.
This is a story where the strongest and smartest survive and how love really heals old wounds.This was a touching story about healing and overcoming the darkness as well and I loved the chemistry that Nitro and Tristen had as it kept things hot in the bedroom as well as out of it.Through all the tragedy Tristen managed to stir things up and even added a bit of fun and teasing into the mix that had us smiling from time to time as she had a witty personality as well.
I love when you start off by loving the character's you are reading about and I did that with these two and when that happens it just makes the story for me more enjoyable.I also love how the author decided to give Nitro his own story and make it part of the MC series in a way but acts as a standalone as he was not actually a member with the Satan Fury MC but Tristen she is the one with the real ties to them.This was a nice spin off to the previous series.
Another enjoyable read by this author and as always looking forward to seeing what happens next.
