  4. As I write this review, I m feeling a little bit torn I listened to the Audible version and I think that I would have enjoyed this story if I had read the Kindle version Somewhere around 75% in, the male narrator seemed to go into a roid rage or something Both the narrators seemed to become extremely animated, making the story, especially the sex scenes, seem overdone The male narrator, especially, killed it for me He was just too much He took an emotional, heartfelt and serious story and turne [...]

  13. 3.5 Stars I had to pause before actually rating this I really like stories that are set to occur in situations such as this Mostly because you run the gamut of human emotion that you won t likely find in fictional Homecoming Dances or a filthy bar where the heroine works I loved how the author depicted war time Iraq with believable grit and vividness it was hard to not pay attention When she describes Rania s clients and when they are doing their business, you can SMELL the place AND the person [...]

  20. This book was truly one of a kind I had no idea what I was going to get when I started, I had read reviews where readers were saying they were physically sick I get it, and I completely understand why now that I have finished However, I managed to refrain from running to the nearest toilet that doesn t mean it was easy though It wasn t, it was very hard at times, it was so raw, so gritty so real Wounded is the story of two broken souls from polar opposites of life, coming together in the most tr [...]

  22. OMG Wow That was unexpected Reading the synopsis of this book I m thinking this is a love story of a girl struggling to get by meets a military guy dealing with the demands of being in the war Boy was I ever wrong I was hating this book loving this book at the same time Hating it because my heart went out to Rania and what she had to endure from the early age of 12 From losing both her parents, her uncle and then her aunt to deaths Then her little brother leaves her to join the war but he he is [...]

This book was so well written, I had tears in my eyes half the time I almost didn t finish reading because I found it so hard to read some parts in the book, but I couldn t stop because I needed to know what was going to happen I thought this book was so beautiful and real The only thing I could say is wrong with this book is the cover, its misleading this book is not a raunchy, trashy read Its one of the best books I ve ever read, its a story about love, loss and overcoming the worst kind of ha [...]


  25. The amount of cheese in this story was overwhelming Still, given all the glorious reviews, it s quite possible it s me Maybe I haven t read the same book as everybodoy else.


  26. Reading this book was at times very hard My heart was in my throat, I felt Raina s panic and her utter desperation I felt angry at the world that let a young girl face an existence like this, even though I know that this happens, it was a harsh slap in the face to read about it.This book starts in 1993, the first Gulf War, the war that took everything from a 14 year old girl Raina is starving and is forced to do the unthinkable to survive, if you could call it surviving She leads a bleak existen [...]
