Lorrie has had a lot of tragedy in her life the past 2 years. Her stepfather murders her mother and her father committed suicide shortly after. Trying to get her life back to "normal", Lorrie returns to college and on her first day back is rescued from a frozen pond by cage fighter Hunter " The Hammer" Jensen. After seeing him fight at a bar one night, the two of them decide to be friends,even though they are both strongly attracted to each other.
I cannot say enough good things about this book! I absolutely loved it. Lorrie is a strong girl, who is trying to move on from the death of both of her parents. She is afraid to let anyone in because she is afraid she will not survive another loss in her life. Yet being around Hunter, Lorrie starts to live again. Hunter has all of my favorite traits. He is a MMA fighter, he is sexy as hell and he is a major goofball. He has been attracted to Lorrie since the day they met, but knows that she is not ready for a relationship so does he does not push her. He is just happy being with her. And with that, he totally took over one of the top spots in my favorite book boyfriends! There is a cliffhanger at the end of the book and I cannot wait until the next book comes out in early 2014, so I can find out what happens!!!!
Expected publication: December 16th 2013
