Damaged Goods - L. Wilder - Release Blitz & Review

Title: Damaged Goods
Series: The Redemption Series
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 8, 2017

With one look, she became my obsession. 

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do to have her, even if that meant risking everything I’d worked so hard to build. I put it all on the line and did what had to be done – for her.

I’m determined to have her in every way. But it’s not that easy. Like me, she’s damaged through and through, scarred by a past that haunts her very existence. She resists me, rebelling at every turn, but I can’t let her go. She doesn’t realize she holds the key to my salvation. She’s the only one who can calm the beast that rages within me. 

Nathan James is every girl’s fantasy—rich, powerful, and devilishly handsome. I should be happy that he came to my rescue, saving me from my worst nightmare, but I’ve just exchanged one hell for another. He was the highest bidder, and now he thinks he owns me. He gave me my freedom. He gave me a second chance that I thought was stolen from me. He’s given me everything, except the one thing I truly want—his heart. 

Will their love heal the wounds of their past, or will they both remain damaged goods?

4 Stars

Although Damaged Goods is the first title in the Redemption series, it is a cross-over novel for the Satan's Fury MC series, and carries on from Big.  

Nitro is a bad-ass alpha, and Tristen is a strong female, both characters are quite endearing, they are survivors, damaged and tormented by their pasts.  Their story is full of emotion, and deals with love, loss and heartbreak and making a choice to take a second chance at life and love. 

This story is insta-lust, the connection between the lead characters develops at a slower pace.  Although this is not my favorite of Ms Wilder's work, it is still very well written, engaging and entertaining read and I quite enjoyed the story line which has a good blend of suspense, intrigue, action and heat.  

I found several of the secondary characters to be quite captivating, and look forward to reading their stories in the future.  I will be eagerly anticipating more of Ms Wilder's work. 

Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.
