Review ~ Damaged Goods by Nicole Williams

When Liv Bennett said good-bye to her sinkhole of a hometown, she planned to leave that chapter of her life behind forever. But forever turned out to only be three years.
After her addict of a mother up and disappears, Liv returns to what she considers her own personal hell smack in the middle of nowhere Nevada to take care of her two younger sisters, and she promptly reinstitutes the golden rule that got her through her first nineteen years of life without getting knocked up, roughed up, or messed up: don’t date the local boys and, god forbid, don’t fall in love with one of them.

It isn’t long before that golden rule is put to the test.

Will Goods grew up in the next trailer over, but the wild, careless boy who used to tear up the town with his three brothers has morphed into someone else so completely, he’s almost unrecognizable. The quiet, contemplative man who works on cars every night and takes care of his mentally ill mother every day is nothing like the local boys Liv grew up avoiding.

But when Liv considers suspending her golden rule just this once, she finds out something about Will that will change everything.
Will Goods isn’t who he used to be—he’s not even the man Liv thinks she’s gotten to know over the summer. He’s become someone else entirely.

He’s become . . . Damaged Goods.

About the Author

I’m the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of the CRASH series (HarperTeen, S&S UK), LOST & FOUND series, UP IN FLAMES (S&S UK), The EDEN TRILOGY, and a handful of others. I write stories about everyday kinds of people who find themselves in extraordinary kinds of situations. I tell love stories with happy endings because I believe in making the world a better place, and that’s one tiny way I can make it so. I’m one of those people who still believe in true love and soul mates, and would rather keep my head in the clouds any day over having my feet firmly on the ground.

My Thoughts:

I liked Hard Knox which was book one, but I liked this one a little more. This is a stand alone. There is no need to read the first book before reading this one unless you want to. :-)

In Damaged Goods, we meet Liv. She is a pessimist who has clawed her way out of the life she couldn't stand only to be dragged back into it when her younger sisters need her.

While helping her sisters she meets Will. I really liked Will.

Between the front and back covers you will find resignation, family, friendship, struggles, determination, romance, steam, a few surprises, some laughs, and drama.

I LOVED the end. It was so romantic and sweet.

If you want a romance that resembles real life and not those fluffy romances with insta-love, you came to the right place. This book will fill your craving. ;-)

I received an ecopy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion. It was wonderful. I am a fan of this author. Each book seems to get better and better!
