[Epub] Damaged Goods (The Outsider Chronicles, #2)  By Nicole  Williams – Vejega.info 3.5 starsEnjoyable with a great twist Sometimes I didn t connect with the writing but I loved the story line. Interesting readThis book wasn t what I expected but now that I ve read it I couldn t tell you exactly what it was I expected.Liv Bennett couldn t get away from her small hometown fast enough and she s working hard to try and make something of herself She left behind her mother if you can call her that and her two younger sisters Reese and Paige but her sister s are never far from her thoughts and she sends money back for them whenever she can.Liv is having a bad night and it s about to get worse as she finds herself returning to the town she tried so hard to escape from.For Liv, like most of the characters in this book life has been hard and it seems as if she s been dealt one bad hand after another but she does what she has to do to survive.Liv is strong at times but she s also cynical, rude, hard hea 4 GoodWill StarsThis book honestly was NOT what I was expecting AT ALL I really enjoyed the twist that was the driving force of this story line and my heart went out to the cast of this book They all had some hard knocks from the school of life they had to work through Liv definitely had to take one for the team She did what she had to, to survive, and that s what ended up surprising me the most At times I did feel there was a bit too much in the inner dialogue department from Liv, but over all I really did enjoy this story These characters definitely had a lot to learn about themselves and how to strive to be better and achieve their goals to make that possible in the long run Will Goods, or as my mind kept thinking GoodWill, was quite the man He was good down to the core and didn t seem to have a deceiving bone in his body He s an honest guy, a hero, a loving and devoted son, a great mechanic, a helpful neighbor and once you let him into your heart, a loving, caring and understanding man He sees the world differently.Liv Bennett is a whole other ball of wax She has a jaded view of the world She came from a white trash place, had a stigma placed on her in high school and she s very pessimistic She has two sisters to help support, her own college career to get through and holds down a late night full time job Her mother did her no favors, her town did her no favors, and li Love who you want to love Love who you need to love And love those you do without abandon or fearthis series is free on kindle unlimited This book didn t work for me on multiple levels Sad, because I loved Hard Knox, and, if I would ve read this one first, it s highly likely I wouldn t have ever given anything else this author wrote another chance Yep, this was that bad and Knox wasthat good I couldn t find a single thing that I liked about this book Characters And the award for most annoying female MC in history goes to Liv Anyhoo, I m instantly turned off by the female MC from her disassociated, convoluted way of dealing with the shit life hands her to the constant barrage of inner diatribes she has just so she can throw herself a pity party every five seconds Did life really, really stink for Liv Yeah No doubt, she was handed shitty cards in life Is it okay to complain about it, have a breakdown about it, cry, put up protective walls, etc Of course I m not heartless to her plight However, this chick is like a broken down radio stuck on repeat with poor, pitiful me blasting through the speakers nonstop For someone hell bent on NEVER just laying down accepting the life she was born into, she spent most of her time rolling over and playing dead to it painting herself into imaginary corners where she CHOSE to believe she didn t Liv Bennet is the stupidest, most self absorbed, ignorant, unfeeling character of all time I want to slap her over the head to try to get only one reasonable thought out of her And Will Goods is a saint and the most understanding and forgiving person Sorry for the rant but I just had to That is all. Early warning This book is in no way related to Hard Knox Didn t impact the rating at all, just a forewarning to those who were hoping for a Knox Charlie sequel or at least a smidge of a cross over The books are completely unrelated and I m honestly not sure whey they re not just advertised as two stand alone books.Alright, quick plot review view spoiler Liv is a college student whose primary goal in life was to get away from her trashy hometown She has two younger sisters back home who she sends money to, but doesn t see often The night before final exams she gets a call from her sister that their mom took off and the third sister s really sick she has to take off from her fresh start and go back to the hometown she never wanted to see again Enter Will Will is the hot next door neighbor who s honorable, heroic, charming, and just an all around good guy He was blinded in the line of duty, which we don t find out til the end but is HEAVILY foreshadowed to the point you re kind of wondering how Liv could possibly have miss 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. 3.75 StarsWhile I really enjoyed Hard Knox, the first book in The Outsider Chronicles, it was a little harder for me to get into Damaged Goods The main character, Liv Bennet, came off as a bit of a man hater I know she didn t hate all guys, she did have a steady boyfriend for two years, she just really disliked men Actually it was like men and women from her hometown in Nevada.For about half the book I found Liv to be a hard character to like Even though she dropped everything in her life to take care of her underage sisters when their meth head mom left I still hard a hard time feeling connecting with her I did however really enjoy the two male characters in the book, Will and Jake Jake was not what I would think of when I imagine a strip club owner He was smart and, well not a dick He wasn t sleazy or a total creep His verbal sparing with Liz was one of the highlights of the novel But the real saving grace was Will.Will was such a great character He was patient and unbelievably kind, but he had a secret surrounding him that added to his appeal There are multiple scenes where Will and Liv get very physical with each other all without saying a word It sounds weird and is hard to explain without giving too much away, but these scenes only add a mysterio Definitely not Knoxthis one didn t do any thing for me really would have been better if we read about this chick getting a lobotomy and then a TEAM of psychiatrist she had ISSUES love the H..Will.he was totally swoon worthy I even l
