Review: Damaged by Becca Vincenza

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.

My thoughts after reading DAMAGED:


Damaged is a New Adult paranormal romance--YAY!-- about a girl who's lived most of her life locked away. Until she's rescued from her cell.

Audrey is a girl with scars, both in and out. Life hasn't been kind to her, and she doesn't trust very easily.  Enter Stone, and his team. From the moment he sets his sights on her, Stone is thoroughly enamoured by this girl who never speaks to anyone. Even after rescuing Audrey he still wonders why her in particular. What makes her special?  
Turns out she's very special, this girl. And Stone will do anything to protect her. This story has lots of surprises, and when we finally get to find out about Stone, another WOW! 

Other characters I really enjoyed in this story: Nixie and Elijah. I really loved Nixie's bubbly girl-next-door personality, and the mystery surrounding Elijah. He's quite an enigma, and I can't wait to read his story. 

I really enjoyed this story. Becca managed to weave a unique story, with great worldbuilding and very well developed characters. 

I'm look forward to reading Healed, the second book in this series.  I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance. 

Damaged is only .99 cents at the moment.
