Blog Tour Review: Damaged Goods by Nicole Williams

Check out my review of Hard Knox (The Outsider Chronicles #1) I adored the companion novel, Hard Knox, and I was interested to see what else Nicole Williams had to bring to the table. Damaged Goods follows Liv Bennett as she drops everything in order to take care of the two younger sisters that her druggie mother abandons. It was okay, plot wise. There was definitely a plot twist that completely blindsided me in a good way. I had absolutely no idea that it was coming and I gaped at the book for a good five minutes when it happened. In terms of plot and pacing, the novel was pretty engaging. It wasn’t as action-heavy as Hard Knox. It was more an emotional journey for the characters than an action-y one. Nevertheless, it kept me engaged from beginning to end. Liv Bennett dropped everything in order to be there for her sisters.

With more and more evidence pointing towards the hard boy she is starting to fall for, Charlie must come to discover the real truth. This novel had the perfect mix of suspense, mystery, and drama. There was a total plot twist near the end that kept me gaping. It just can’t articulate how much I enjoyed this book. I read it in one sitting and I was seriously sad when it ended. I loved trying to find out about bad-boy Knox’s past that made him the way he was and I loved watching Charlie try to find out who was committing these crimes. It definitely kept me hooked from beginning to end. Charlie was the definition of independent. She wore weird shirts to ward off guys and didn’t let anyone objectify her. She was snarky and […]
