Publisher's Summary

War has taken everything from me. My family. My home. My innocence. In a country blasted by war and wracked by economic hardship, a young orphan girl like me has very few options when it comes to survival...Thus, I do what I must to live, to eat, and I try very hard to not consider the cost to my soul. My heart is empty, and my existence brutal. The one impossibility in my life is love. And then I meet HIM.
War is hell. It takes a chunk out of a man's very soul to do the kinds of things war demands of you. You live with fear, you live with guilt, and you live with nightmares. If you haven't been through it, there's no understanding it. War leaves no room for love, no room for tenderness or softness. You gotta be hard, closed off, and ready to fight every moment of every day. Lose focus for a split second, and you're dead. Now the only thing that can save me is HER.
Due to sexual content and language, this book is recommended for adults only. Wounded is a full-length standalone novel, approximately 70,000 words.

Not Your Usual Romance

This book is grouped in the erotic section and although there are sex scenes the overall focus of the book doesn't follow the usual theme of erotica. The story was dark following an Iraqi young woman who turns to prostitution to keep herself from starving after her family was killed and a US Marine who is lonely after catching his high school sweetheart cheating on him before he deploys to Iraq. The author gave a vivid view of life in Iraq for a young girl who lost her family in the first war, dessert storm and 10 years later "weapons of mass destruction" war and it is not pretty. The narration was "so so". Alexandria Stevens was better than Greg Wilson. I found his narration to be obnoxious at times and wished he could bring it down a notch. As a reader of romance novels, I am amazed how quickly the characters fall in love and get married to the point I roll my eyes. However, this book was realistic and I could completely see how the characters were united.

great narration

What did you love best about Wounded?

sort of a strange example of a book where I felt the story was a little lacking but the narration was really, really great so I didnt really mind too much.


What about Greg Sule Wilson and Alexandria Stevens ’s performance did you like?

I really liked the sort of dual narration. while in female pov, male quotes were delivered by the male narrator. not sure why more books arent recorded this way. I really enjoyed it.
