sweet, that’s me. One sour, that’s him… and serve over ice.
That’s how you’ll get to my current situation.
You know the girl – the one who commands the scene, bottle of liquor in hand,
pouring liquid fire into the willing throats of patrons as they let loose at
the local bar?That’s me.
I may be known as the town party girl, but in reality I’m this close to my
dream of opening my own bar – McConaugheys. Yes, it will be named after the
acclaimed actor. What can I say? I’m a sucker for that sexy Texan.
Everything was going as planned until the night I had a few drinks and accepted
a ride home from a friend. A misunderstanding leads to an arrest, and now I’m
at the mercy of the one man I can’t stand, and trust me, the feeling is
Adam Reingold is six-feet-tall and built like a stallion — the man is the
epitome of male. He also happens to be the town narc and hates my guts. There’s
a story to our past and it’s not a pretty one.
So, now, here I am, chained to him for the summer like a hardened criminal,
doing whatever he tells me to do. Problem is, I can’t help but look at him when
he’s not watching and wonder what our future could be like if things were
There are so many reasons why he’s all wrong for me. Even more reasons why I
need to stay away from him.
It’s a cocktail of trouble. Best served shaken, not stirred.
OMGEEE…. I love Wrecked so much. And anyone that has gotten to know a little about the author Jeannine Colette, you know how much she loves Matthew Mcconaughey. And let me tell you people, there is a whole lot of Mcconaughey going on in this book! I was giggling any time Leah (the heroine) would mention the little things in her life that was all about that hottie. So if you have not guessed it yet, yes Leah is obsessed with good ol’ Matt. May I also mention she has a life size cut out board of him…Now on to more reasons I loved this book.
Even though Wrecked had its good moments and makes you laugh, there were also some parts that had me holding onto the edge, had me worry, and then sad once I got a peek into the characters past. Adam is our hottie of this story and seemed cold and unemotional, you can only hope that it is only a front. Leah has a good heart. She is also sassy and a whole lot of fun where she works. Adam works for the law and seems to only go into Leah’s bar to stir up people that are just trying to have a good time. These two has a past that hurts them and affected them up to present day. There are lessons learned and a reminder that you really never forget about true love once you have been touched by it.
Wrecked was sexy, anticipating, thrilling, and down right unexpected from Jeannine’s previous books. I feel that as we grow with these characters, we build more of an emotional bond in their stories. Another fabulous read by a fabulous author!
