Damaged Goods by Rye Hart

by | Jan 15, 2018

I got Damaged Goods as bonus content with another of Rye Hart’s books. While I didn’t love the original book I bought, I enjoyed Damaged Goods. It’s a stand-alone 60K word novel about a single dad and his nanny falling for each other.

As someone who was currently grieving several loved ones while reading Damaged Goods, I found the sections about the father’s grief over his wife to be interesting. Hart did a good job of capturing the warring emotions of missing someone that’s a part of your every day life while also hating them tremendously for some betrayal.

Do I think that someone still grieving his wife would so quickly fall in love with the nanny? As in, before he even saw her? No, not really. But then, when has any romance book been 100% realistic? Do I think {spoiler} the bio-dad would have given up after watching the family eat a single meal? Also, no, someone that went to the lengths he did to see his child would not give up that easily. But, again, happy endings are guaranteed in romances, right?

Do I think you should read this book? Sure! It’s a great little escape for the day. But maybe don’t read it while you’re actively grieving someone.

4/5 stars


I only post reviews for books I am not connected with. If I beta read or edited the book, or work as a virtual assistant for the author, I do not post a review. However, authors occasionally send me books to review.

Projected* schedule for Book Reviews for 2018:

1st Monday: Fantasy or Sci-Fi (what I read the most)
2nd Monday: Random book (could be anything, but expect a lot of mysteries)
3rd Monday: Romance (might have sex, but will not be any relationship that is not MF)
4th Monday: Non-Fiction (inspirational, biographies, instructional)

*Due to LIFE being a factor in my life, this schedule might not actually happen.
