Overview

Adjusting to a new town was hard for Tara Edwards. Luckily, she was able to find a friend in Darren Jones, the boy whose family owns half the city. He offered her protection and friendship, but what he wanted in return was more than Tara was willing to give.

Eventually, Tara leaves the city she grew up in, looking to start a new life. What she cultivates is far from the traditional progression of things, and Tara soon finds that sometimes what you don't want is exactly what you need.

When tragic circumstances cause her to return to the city that she hates, it feels like everyone she has ever damaged is there to haunt her. Just when it seems like the ghosts of her past are going to drag her down into the pit of despair, there's a light at the end of the tunnel in the form of an old friend. But when things turn a bit more than friendly, Tara finds herself caught between two men, trapped between her past and her future.

Damaged is loosely based off of Behind Her Green Eyes, a novel referenced in the Wrong or Write series.

This story was amazing! I love Sky Corgan as an author because,she never fails to deliver! The main character is a selfish,and at times cruel woman. You know that saying about karma,and what goes around comes around! Well,I found myself saying those phrases over,and over again! She wants to escape,or more aptly,dump her old life and everything had to go,parents,friends,yep! This girl was going to the city,she wanted it all!! Things didnt quite happen as she had planned.,The boy she threw away,because he was geeky,was now a hot ,but damaged man. He used to protect her as children,befriended her when nobody else would,and she broke his heart. What dwill happen when she returns home years later?

I received this book free for an honest review. Darren is so in love with Tara he would do anything to take care of her. Tara believes she can't love Darren because she would lose him if it didn't work out. I couldn't wait to see how their romance would work out, no matter what Tara went through Darren was always her night in shining armor.

Tara started her life thinking that she was a princess, loved by all. Then she started kindergarten and found out that the world is full of bullies and those who aren't actively cruel are more than willing to follow the crowd. The day she met Darren Jones everything changed. He's an intellectual prodigy whose wealthy parents are grooming him for better things than their small town. Content to be alone with his books, Darren protects Tara from the schoolyard bullies and a lifelong friendship develops. Damaged is the story of Tara's life. As she grows from her awkward childhood into a beautiful young woman, Darren's friendship is constant, but when he makes it clear that he wants more from her than friendship, the idea of loving him as more than a brother changes the course of their lives in unexpected ways. A never ending surprise from start to finish; every time I thought I'd figured out what was going to happen next, Sky Corgan added a plot twist that threw me! An intricately woven story line with well developed characters whose life journeys showcase human nature at its fallible best. Full of love and hate, betrayal and forgiveness, dreams and heartache; Damaged was an emotional journey that I'll not soon forget! A copy of Damaged was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I Loved reading this book. What a wonderful story of two damaged people finding each other. They find love and is so right. I felt so sorry for these two and was pushing for them to be together.It did have a lot of twists and turns and unexpected outcomes. I felt sad, happy and had a great feeling of loss. They seem to be a reason to come out of their protective shell. The ending was a happy ending but was a surprise. I never thought Nicolas would do what he did to win Holly back!

This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this book. It carried me on an emotional roller coaster ride. I became angry due to the bullying of Tara, however, that is how she met Darren. The story will make you angry and sad. I cried a couple of times. I was outraged at one point. Tara wanted adventure causing her to move and go to college away from home. She was selfish, stupid, and foolish, but she had to learn some of lifes' lessons the hard way. She experienced fear, anger, joy, love of a best friend, false love, betrayl, tragedy,sadness, among others. She also experienced the miracle of true unconditional love. This was a very good story.

After reading many of her books, I think of Sky as an author who packs a punch in several areas. Her characters are interesting, and often gritty. The sex is always HOT HOT HOT, and this book smokes in places. In "Damaged," Tara is one selfish leading lady. Darren, who loved and protected Tara through their childhoods, is tossed away along with her friends and family when Tara "escapes" the town she grew up in. After she starts a career, Tara dates a handsome doctor for years before family tragedy strikes and she is reunited with Darren.

As Tara navigates her way through the rocky world of relationships, her life is filled with highs and lows. You'll have to read this great book to find out if Tara matures past her selfishness, and discover which man rises to the top to win her love. I gave this book four stars because I would've liked to read more about the sexy men in Tara's life - Sky knows how to write hot scenes, and I would've liked to have even more of them!

I really like Sky Corgan as an author so I was surprised by this book. The book was good but I found it hard to get into at the beginning  and then felt the end was hurried. The story line is a great idea, but I felt "more" was needed.The ideas of being bullied and rejected  and how that can totally change a person are real and can be emotionally felt by the reader. The background to "Damaged" was a good choice and I can see the rejected love being connected to "Behind Her Green Eyes" and "Write or Wrong", but it fell short in  my opinion.

It started a little slow but interesting enough to keep reading (and I am glad I did). It is a great read and is very relatable to the everyday person. So many of the romance novels are about very rich people, I like them to but it was nice to read about people like the rest of us.  The author keeps you on your toes also, you never quite know what will happen next (you think you do but then he throws in something surprising). It is a wonderful romance that I would definitely recommend. A copy of Damaged was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. It was a It was an interesting read that held my interest the whole book. However, I found this book to be rather mild. It captured real emotions of very real characters, but their actions seemed a little silly at times. Guess that is the human condition. It was a good read, but not my most favorite.
