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?
When it comes to writing a review for a L. Wilder read, I feel like I have to take my time to express my feelings about how much I love her MC Men. I fell in love with Wilder's writing with the Satan's Fury MC series and she does not disappoint me in her new The Redemption Series.
In Damaged Goods we learn more about Nathan (Nitro) James, we were introduced to him in Big: Satan's Fury MC. He came off as powerful, demanding and trust-worthy, in this story he still has those qualities and more. Nitro holds on to wanting revenge and finds that loving someone has no place in his heart. So I found Nitro to be a little different when it came to Wilder's men and the women they love. I'm so use to the MC men putting their women first,with Nitro (I found him to be more of an alpha male) - he did in his own way show his interest in the woman he saved. His need for vengeance came first and I don't blame him, because his story will tear your heart in two. Will Nitro be able to have his revenge and keep the woman that has consumed him, without anyone getting hurt in the end?
Tristen is someone from the Satan's Fury series, the last we knew of her- she was being saved by Nitro from a sex slave auction. Nitro protected and became a savior to her. Tristen finds herself pulled in his direction, she sees the two sides of him- the one who is destructive and the one who could be gentle and if he lets his guard down, he could be loving. She accepts everything he has to offer, except when it comes with demands. Tristen is a strong woman, even after all that she has been through she holds on to her goals. Will Tristen be able to handle her own nightmares and deal with all the damage that Nitro comes with?
Damaged Goods is a emotional roller-coaster of a read that will grab you from the start, it will mess with your heart, nerves and give your body the tingles. The connection between Nitro and Tristen is magnetic, sexy, confusing, puts a smile on your face or will have you shedding a tear. These are two sexy characters with a past that haunts them, they are deserving of love if Nitro could let go of his past and if Tristen could patiently wait until he figures out how he truly feels about her. The suspense will have you on the edge of your seat. I have to say, I recommend that you read the Satan's Fury MC series and this 5 Star Wilder Read!
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.
