Hunter is an ex-con, always in the wrong place at the worst times which is how he landed in prison. He’s looking to start anew when in walks Elliott.
Timid and sheltered Elliott has his life in order. Or so he thinks, that is until Hunter introduces him to a whole new world.
Both are battling past demons, but what happens when their worlds collide?
Battered and Bruised, but Not Broken is an exquisite tale. TL Travis and Piper Kay have completely wowed me.
Hunter, and ex con who's on parole, is struck dumb when he first sees Elliott. The attraction is immediate and strong. After a hot hook-up, they meet again when Hunter applies for a job.
Their story is full of extreme heartache, as well as many heartfelt moments. They experience considerable pain and hurt and each has scars that bear the weight of their past.
Hunter is an amazing character. As he's falling for Elliott, he's terrified to reveal his past. He's afraid of rejection, as no one ever stays. Elliott is stunning and marvelous character. At 23, he's still a virgin. He's also suffered tremendous amount of pain in his past.
I love that Hunter and Elliott learn to trust one another. In fact, at the beginning, they place an enormous amount of trust in each other physically. It takes longer for the trust to be placed in other ways.
Battered and Bruised, but Not Broken hits on the importance and power of finding someone who loves who unconditionally. It's a tender story of pain, love, and acceptance. I highly recommend it.
