Book Review: Damaged by C. K. Green

28074194

After suffering a traumatic event, Kiera tries to hide from her past. By doing so, she also hides from Ethan, the man who put his heart and soul into finding out the truth about what happened to her. When they are reunited, Kiera’s demons resurface with a vengeance, causing her to immediately push him away. Too bad their undeniable attraction toward each other throws a wrench in her plans…

I like how this story is told from alternating perspectives and how it’s laced with elements of suspense. While it’s extremely sad for me to imagine someone going through what Keira went through, I find it interesting the way Green conveyed this character’s PTSD. Part of me felt that she should have been further along in the healing process, but I know very little about the disorder, so my opinion could be way off. It seemed clear, though, that the way she kept everyone in her life at arm’s length stifled her ability to heal.

I don’t want to give anything away, but I have to say that I feel Ethan was a bit harsh and too forward with Kiera at times. The way he acted toward her in certain instances made me wonder if his intentions were what they seemed, but it was also kinda hot the way he was so crazy for her. Good debut, CK Green!
