GHBT Review: Damaged by Nina D'Angelo

Outlaws Series #1
By Nina D’Angelo
Expected Publication Date- February 28th, 2014 

Before Stephanie Carovella had nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, she was damaged.

Stephanie Carovella has been running from her past all her life. The survivor of a brutal attack which left her best friend dead, she has carefully built a protective wall around herself, but she knows sooner or later her past is going to catch up with her.

It’s why she doesn’t want to fall in love. It’s why she doesn’t want to let anyone get too close.

Dominic Delaney works hard and plays just as hard. He’s a love ‘em and leave ‘em guy who doesn’t believe in forever until Stephanie walks into Outlaws. She is wild, unpredictable and dangerous as hell, yet, he’s drawn to her.

He needs to know the secrets behind her eyes. He can’t walk away.

A sexy, tattooed womanizer, Dominic Delaney’s everything Stephanie wants to avoid. She knows she should stay the hell away from him, but he makes her want to stop running.

Sometimes, even the Damaged deserve to fall in love.

First off I am just going to make a point to say I am in cover love with this novel. It is sexy but not trashy and I really enjoy the way it looks, and it just screams at you to read me! Read me!

Now, onto what is behind the cover. Damaged is part of the prequel series Outlaws, prefacing her novel Nowhere to Run (which I will definitely be reading now). Now, I read it not knowing it was a prequel novel and was not in the least bit confused and for that I am grateful--I am sorry but some prequel novels just don't measure up.

I really enjoyed Stephanie as a character and I am very glad there is a-whole-nother series about her for me to dig into, and Dominic unf. Yummy...but I digress. Setting aside just how shmexy they both are I really enjoyed the complexity of each of their stories. I highly recommend this read and I am sure I will recommend the novels following! D'Angelo is captivating.

My Rating:
