Release Day Blitz and Book Review: Damaged Goods by L. Wilder

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?

My thoughts: 

Can I just take a moment to drool over the cover first? OMG Hawtness!!!! Now that that is out of the way, this book was an emotional rollercoaster and those are sort of my fave! I love damaged characters (it makes the story more realistic because we all have our won damage), and I love it when they are able to overcome for themselves and each other and find love. You start the book sort of like you're in the middle of the story, which was ok for me, as it helped with keeping the pace entertaining. I do feel like it fluctuated between a bit slow (there were times when we got a little marred in details) and then it picked up and I just couldn't put it down. It's sort of hard to give an idea of what the book was about because as y'all know, I am a STRICT no spoiler zone, and I don't know what details I could drop that wouldn't give away pivotal parts of the plot. Just know that tears were shed (Tristen backstory is so heartbreaking) and I was just so happy to see her and the MIGHTY FINE Nitro get their happily ever after! I give Damaged Goods 3.75 out of 5 wine glasses and look forward to the series continuing (because the side characters were super interesting too)!

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.
