Wrecked is the new standalone novel of deliciously dark, deeply emotional contemporary romance from J.B. Salsbury, the New York Times bestselling author of Split and The Fighting Series.
When you can’t trust yourself, how can you ask anyone else to?
It’s been months since Aden Colt left the Army, and still the memories haunt him. When he moved into a boat off the California coast, he thought he’d found the perfect place to escape life.
Then Sawyer shows up, and turns his simple life upside down.
Beautiful and sophisticated, she seems out of place in this laidback beach town. Something is pushing her to experience everything she can—including Aden. But as much as he wants her, starting a relationship with Sawyer puts them both at risk.
For Aden, the past doesn’t stay there; it shows up unexpectedly, uncontrollably, and doesn’t care whose life it wrecks.
MY RATING: 4/5 STARS
I was provided an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.
To start off, I just want to say that when I requested for this book and when I actually received it, I kind of put it off. I just didn’t like how heavy it looked and the synopsis made it sound like there was going to be a lot of thick drama that I wasn’t sure I would be able to handle. I like my light contemporaries, thank you.
However, while Wrecked does have its moments, for the most part, the book was as light as a contemporary romantic comedy. Our war veteran and resident hero, Aden Colt, is a charming character that brought that light touch. He’s funny, flirty, and fierce. But we’ll talk more about him later. The romance inside this novel was light and free until it developed more over time so if you’re like me, don’t worry too much about “drama.”
