same thing over again Same storyline Same characters In this case, it s the same storyline of a woman raped molested in her childhood who grows up to be a man hating lesbian or a stripper Readers get two for one with this book Same character a green eyed vixen with a flawless body sigh Although like so many books today, Ben Burgess does set himself apart with his tale Going beyond the basic premise, Wounded is the journey of one woman, who true to the title is wounded As the saying goes, Hurt people hurt people And that s just what Samantha does until she realizes she is actually hurting herself with her actions and behaviors It takes a lot for her to get to the realization but readers ride shot gun on that journey The writing takes us into the heart and mind of Samantha I applaud Burgess for being able to so effectively write from the point of view of a woman The interaction between the main character and others easily holds readers attention.The end resolved too simply, too neatly There are quirks in the editing I urge the author find an editor who has a good understanding of punctuation in connection with quotation marks.Reviewed by Toni3.5 stars Where do I start This

Miller who enjoyed conquering straight women as a hobby I went on to sympathize with her because if her dark, troubled and traumatic past I saw that it ultimately bred led to her behavior Her best friends are her only family.You go through a multitude of emotional ecstasy in this book as sex, relationships, religion, sexual preferences, and even death is explored This author makes this a treat to read with explicit, raw, uninhibited topics I would definitely read it over and over again Majesti BurroughsAAMBC Reviewer E book gifted by author for reviewSamantha Miller had anything but an easy

that Sasha does Could this be the new start for Samantha or will the ghosts of her past get in the way of her finding happiness Wounded is another great offering from author Ben Burgess Jr, it makes you really delve into the very essence of what makes us the way we are as people He does not sugar coat his portray of this damaged woman There are many people in this world that would have gone through what Samantha has been through and he captures the very essence of the struggles she faced as a child and still faces in her adult life.In the beginning of the story I had a feeling I would not like Samantha s character but as the story evolves I found myself wondering what would I do in her position Would I accept the help that Sasha was offering me or would I throw it all away and continue on a path of self destruction In the last few chapters I was in tears as the emotional journey Samantha is on took a sudden and unexpected turn.If you enjoy stories that make you delve into yourself and, make you think of what could be if you were in the character s situation This is definitely a book worth taking the time to read.Warning contains explicit sexual descriptions. ^EPUB ⇨
