All Antonio did was hurt her.
All he did was give her hell.
He took away everything good in her world.
Everything that ever mattered.

Jenny is used to putting on a brave facade, letting the outside world see her as wild and free. She is loyal and loves with her whole heart, loving others so much that she is willing to sacrifice herself in the process.

Jules was only supposed to be a diversion for Jenny. Fun times with no strings attached. She didn't intend to fall for Jules, a member of The Devil’s Crusader’s Motorcycle Club. But fall for him is exactly what she did.

Antonio has been wreaking havoc on her life since Jenny was sixteen years old. Now she is forced to marry Antonio to keep her loved ones safe, destroying the man she loves in the process and driving him away.

Riding back into town after years away, Jules discovers the woman he once loved no longer exists, and it’s up to him to see if he can bring her back.

NOTE TO READER: This book contains strong sexual scenes and violence against women. Jenny curses so if you can't stand the "f" bomb then avoid this one. This is book 3, however each book in the series can be read as a stand alone.

I looked away from the paper and met Jules’ eyes. He was searching mine trying to read my thoughts. He looked worried like he was nervous about what I would think. Jules moved a piece of hair behind my ear and then said, “I know. It doesn't do you justice.”

“Are you kidding me? I was thinking that I don't live up to the woman in the picture. Is that how you see me, Jules?”

In a flash, he closed the sketchpad and tossed it on the chair. He moved on top of me, holding himself up like he was going to do a pushup, his hands on each side of my head, “If you could only see how I see you.”

I gulped at his words. There is so much more to Jules than meets the eye. With him on top of me, staring down at me, whispering words to me that made me feel vulnerable and beautiful, I felt guilty. This happiness wasn't mine to have. I took advantage of the night, and now the sun was starting to rise. A ray of light peeked through a high glass block window telling me my time was up.

“Jules,” I began, then drew in a breath and continued, “Tonight has been amazing but…”

“Don’t you dare lay beneath me in my t-shirt and nothing else and try to give me some it’s not you, it’s me crap. You feel this right here.” He moved to his knees so that he was straddling my thighs then reached up between my legs and pressed his thumb right into my pussy, “That’s me inside of you. You feel all that wetness? That’s my cum and you coating my finger. You like me there, don't you?” His thumb moved over my clit and two fingers filled me up. I gasped. This was not going how I envisioned. I needed to get away and tell him this was a one-time thing. “You need me here, don’t you?”

My Review:

Hurt You  (Wrecked #3)Hurt You by Abby McCarthy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hurt You by Abby McCarthy is the third and possibly final book in her Wrecked series. This is the story of Jules & Jenny that has been hinted at in the past two books but I had NO IDEA just how dramatic and devastating Jenny’s story truly was.

Since she was sixteen, Antonio has been letting her know that she is his, and in time, he will take her. He has physically harmed, threatened, and bribed any boyfriends she has had that have gotten too close to his prize. When she first meets Jules there's an acknowledgment between them but nothing more. But it is the lighting of the ember that becomes their love and ultimately, their sacrifice.

I placed my fingertips against the glass and touched my reflection where my face was still pink from his slap. "Goodbye," I whispered to myself and then left the woman I was for twenty-five years behind.~ Jenny

Jules is part of the Devil’s Crusaders MC. He is ex-military, competent, quiet, and the sweetest bad-boy biker you could ever meet. He is so intense in his feelings for Jenny that it will literally steal your breath away as you read. He knows that Jenny has a secret she is keeping from him and agrees to keep their romantic interludes on the down-low, for now. He has no idea the extent of the secret Jenny hides from every single person in her life, bearing the burden of Antonio and his threats against all those she loves on her shoulders alone.

You want me to make love to you Jenny or do you want me to fuck you becaue I can fuck you but I don't really think you want me to love you.~ Jules

I read - A LOT - like a book a day. I blog, I review. My reviews are NOT in depth, paragraphs upon paragraphs of words because, personally, I do not enjoy reading LENGTHY reviews and therefore do not like writing them. That being said (that I read so much), plots become difficult to remember sometimes, one book fades into another. It is hard to come across a book for me that will bring tears to my eyes at the pain (or joy) the characters are experiencing. It has been a while since I read such an emotionally engaging book, but this was one of those. I had the butterflies, the sinking stomach, the pounding heart, and the very wet, suspiciously teary eyes. If I could rate this one 6 stars I am pretty sure I would. Well done Abby - Maura and Aubrey’s stories were amazing, but Jenny’s is out of the park.

If you have NOT read this series you should. While each CAN be read as a standalone, they will make better sense and flow much more beautifully if you read them in order. Wreck You, Fight You, and finally, Hurt You.

Fight You FOR WEBDaws is a Devil Crusader, born and raised a bad boy. He’s sick of superficial, meaningless relationships. Fate throws him a curveball when Aubrey begins working for his dad’s motorcycle shop.

Aubrey is damaged and scarred.

She’s running from a past that has the ability to destroy her. It’s not just herself that she needs to protect. She’s fighting to save her sister. She needs to keep the monster away and she’ll stop at nothing to keep her sister safe.

She wasn’t expecting to meet Daws, the man who would change their lives. Dangerous, strong and completely hers, her heart never had a chance.

Is Daws capable of protecting her from the monster who haunts her? The monster who will stop at nothing to get to her? He wants her back, that much is clear.

She just hopes that when the time comes, she’s strong enough to save them all….

**Please note this is the second book in the Wrecked Series. It can be read as a stand alone and it is not necessary to have read Wreck You, however reading Wreck You first may give you some background to Daws. This book is intended for mature audiences as it has graphic scenes involving sex and child abuse. The use of the F bomb is frequently thrown around so if that offends you, I wouldn't recommend reading this.
