There are some beings in this world, long thought to be extinct. Some seek to protect them, others want control, but some . . . some are hell bent on their destruction.

Audrey was taken from her father, hidden away from the world, and tortured for five years. She was rescued, but is she really safe, or is there someone else waiting to betray her? Can she trust those who saved her? Can she learn to accept who she really is?

Stone was on a routine mission to extract valuable information from a rival clan of paranormals. Instead, he and his team find something much more valuable: a scarred, damaged young woman who holds many secrets, and whose power is beyond anything they could ever have imagined. There is much more to Audrey than meets the eye and Stone is determined to protect her.

Audrey and Stone are about to find out it’s hard to know who to trust.

Becca Vincenza created an amazing paranormal world for us in Damaged. Damaged managed to be so much more than a paranormal book. It was a mystery, a nightmare, a love story, an awakening, and a book about growing into the person you were meant to be. It was completely awesome and I am irritated with myself for letting it sit on my kindle for so long.

“Her quiet strength, her broken spirit that was slowly repairing, she was damaged, but she 

wasn’t shattered.”

Audrey is a broken women. She was taken and has been abused and kept away from the world for five long years. She has spent her time locked away in a room until she is rescued. She is taken to a compound with other paranormals. She is not used to being treated this well. And she is definitely not used to a man like Stone. But she can’t be sure that she is really safe with these people either. They just might be the lesser of two evils.

Stone is a shifter that has seen and done some horrible things all in the name of his family of paranormals. He has now been sent in to get information and he ends up finding Audrey and saving her. Little does he know that he was sent in to get her. Stone has been pulled to Audrey since he first laid eyes on her and now he just wants to keep her safe. But his family, that he has been loyal to forever, might not be the safest place for her.

Audrey and Stone were such great characters. Each of them are broken in their own ways and they help each other grow. The have a solid relationship built on trust and understanding. Their romance start slowly and builds as each of them overcome their own demons.

There are other great characters as well. Like Nixie. She becomes Audrey’s best friend and also another person that is there to protect her. She is bubbly and sassy at the same time. She has some weird but hilarious jokes and comebacks as well as insults. She is overall a great character. Elijah is another interesting character. He is dark, intense, and sometimes downright scary but that makes him even more interesting because you never really know what is going through his head. Or why he has decided to help Audrey.

“Gods help, Audrey. I have fallen in love with you.”

Becca Vincenza wrote Damaged in a way that kept you on your toes the entire time. She keeps you guessing the entire book. What is Audrey hiding? What does Stone’s family want with her? What is she? What is she hiding? Becca dropped hints throughout the book but she only gave you enough to make you keep turning the pages. It was so hard to put this book down. There is nothing boring or slow about this book. There is always something keeping you invested in this story. The book was amazing and I can’t wait to read the next one!
