Companion/Sequel/Other- Book 4 in Forever Series, Book 1 following Hunter and Lorrie
Goodreads Synopsis- 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.
This is the first book following Hunter and Lorrie in the Forever Series by Priscilla West. She has a few other books in this series, however they follow different characters. This is my first read by Priscilla West, and I can honestly say that I enjoyed it.
This book follows Lorrie who returns back to school after taking a few semesters off after some life changing things occur in her life. She wants to focus on school and getting back to normal, but that all changes as soon as she meets Hunter Jensen. Hunter "The Hammer" Jensen is a senior at the college and just so happens to be a cage fighter as well. As soon as they meet, they change each other for the good and bad.
Lorrie was both a very likeable and hate-able character. I loved her in moments, and got so angry with her at other times. She kept pushing Hunter away saying she didn't have feeling for him, but got angry to hear or see him with another woman. Make up your mind girl!
Hunter, I really loved. Yes, he had his problems and you can see that, but he also tried to be normal and go after what he wanted. He didn't push her away. I also loved the fact that he was an Cage Fighter. I found that to be really interesting(and if I'm being completely honest, really hot! Oh and I can't forgot about the tattoos!) However, I do wish we got see more of the Cage Fighting.
Gary and Daniela were the main side characters in this story and I really loved them both. Daniela looks out for Lorrie, and Gary looks out for Hunter. Daniela wants to help get Lorrie back to a normal life and makes sure she goes to parties, and dates, and has fun! However, she doesn't push her. Gary is the only one(besides Ada) to know about Hunters troubles, and as much as he likes Lorrie, he's not afraid to tell her the truth and look out for Hunter. I really liked that.
Overall the story felt like your typical romance story, but I couldn't stop reading. I was really invested in the story, the characters, and just finding out how it all plays out. I most definitely want to read the next one to see what the hell happens.
