Blanca has everything she ever wanted, a hot boyfriend and the loving support of her foster father. She’s finally escaped the abusive control of her birth father and her tortured childhood at Tabula Rasa School.

But the scars of Blanca’s Vestal upbringing run deep, especially when the FBI start asking questions.

Blanca feels abandoned by her boyfriend, who is hunting for Lilith, Blanca’s only blood relative. The Defectos, a support group of Vestal-Rejects, offer Blanca comfort which she readily accepts.

While the Vestal order crumbles, Chinese rivals, the Guardians, rise to power and wrest control of important Tabula Rasa contacts. As Blanca’s life is thrown into chaos once more, she struggles to recognize friend from foe, and one miscalculation can have devastating consequences.

Damaged Goods started out pretty slow for me. The first book started out pretty fast paced but this sequel felt very much like a sequel. I did really like how this book explored more of the world created in Genesis Girl and I thought the character development was really good.
I still wasn’t connected with Blanca though. She still felt… off. I can’t put on my finger on it but there’s just something about her that I don’t like.
I did like how her abusive upbringing was acknowledged a little bit more and Blanca was actively learning to move forward with her life.
Overall, Damaged Goods was a nice sequel. If you loved Genesis Girl, I think you’ll love this book just as much.
