Damaged by Ethan Stone ~ Review by Brandilyn

Don’t forget to check out my review of Book 1, Compromised.

damaged_300Title: Damaged

Author: Ethan Stone

Publisher: Totally Bound

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

From the Publisher:

Correctional Officer Zane Davis didn’t think commitment was in the cards but when he meets Brett Emerson everything that once seemed impossible is now all he can think about.

Correctional Officer Zane Davis thought being bi-sexual and afraid of commitment meant he was destined to be alone until he meets someone who changes everything.

There is an instant attraction when Zane meets Brett Emerson on the job. The fact that Brett is engaged to a woman doesn’t dampen Zane’s attraction. Brett and Zane become friends as they also work to uncover corruption at the prison. The friendship deepens and turns to romance, but will Zane survive the danger he puts himself in when he finds out how far up the corruption goes?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence.

My View

Poor Zane. He just can’t win. He also can’t seem to keep it in his pants. Somehow, I still want him to find his happily ever after. Brett is a bit nerdy, a bit out there, a bit engaged to a beautiful woman. So how do they make their way to each other? This is a romance novel after all.

Damaged is a story of coming out, of finding yourself, of finding love where you least expect it. It is a case of friends becoming lovers. It is a case of people making stupid decisions. It is a case of people finding ways to make up for those decisions. It is a case of people being adults and owning their decisions.

Zane and Brett are an odd couple on the surface, but sometimes that makes things that much more intense. They are both struggling with their identities and through those struggles, find each other. They face adversity together.

I am interested in seeing where the next installment takes us.
