Damaged by R.R. Banks

Published: December 23, 2017

This is not what I was fully expecting from this book. The description made it sound like the two protagonists were high school sweethearts when in fact they had never spoken. It was more like a love from afar type situation. Which isn’t what I was expecting but worked out in the end.

Charlotte is from a family with a lot of money and to her mother appearances are everything. So when she leaves her abusive boyfriend that she has been with since high school her mother takes it into her own hands. She brings everyone in the family together for thanksgiving in a cabin in the mountains and then invites the abusive boyfriend without Charlotte’s knowledge. Needless to say she did not take it well and flees in the middle of a snow storm.

That’s how Micah finds her. She has crashed into a tree and doesn’t remember who she is or why she was in the storm. Micah, however, remembers everything he knew about her, which admittedly isn’t a lot. He wants to help her remember but he also wants to protect her. It could be that he is now in between a rock and a hard place.

This novel was a quick read for me. Like many KU books there are several additional books after this one included in the one download but I didn’t have time to read them. The story moved along and the characters invoked real feelings. I wanted to slap Charlotte’s family for being so ignorant even though that happens all the time in real life. Unlike in real life, the characters did get an HEA which is all I ever want out of my books. If you’re looking for something that is engaging but leaves you satisfied that it’s a stand-alone novel, you should check this one out.

Read quickly!
