ABOUT THE BOOK:
Mylie Mier’s life is overshadowed by tragedy and heartbreak.
She refuses to settle for Mr. Right Now and is holding out for her happily ever after. Then she meets Damien James.
Arriving in Pointe Hope was the pinnacle of Damien James’ success.
He finally had everything he worked so hard for and life is going as planned–until he catches a predator attempting to defile a helpless victim. Mylie enters his life with the all the subtleness of a freight train.
Their connection is instantaneous but Damien is jaded and refuses to acknowledge his attraction. Though mesmerized, Mylie quickly realizes that her savior is a pretentious jerk. They fight their obvious connection, and Damien inadvertently pushes Mylie right into the arms of a sociopath.
Will Mylie live to see her happily ever after or will Damien’s callousness force her to be destined to a life that is wrecked?
I enjoyed reading Wrecked….I read a majority of it in one night – I was that hooked. The story was twisted and unique which made it very interesting. Mylie is a college student studying to become a law professor and waiting for Mr. Right. Damien is a law professor who believes he can’t love after being hurt by his last girlfriend. Mylie lives in her grandparents house with her younger brother and has for the last seventeen years after seeing their parents die in a car accident. Damien saves Mylie from being raped and then makes one stupid comment or does something stupid and ends up pushing her into the arms of a psychopath. They both admit to themselves that the love the other but can’t admit it to each other….although EVERYONE sees it! Can Damien save Mylie from the psychopath in time? Will they ever admit to one another that they love the other one??
The only thing I did not like about this book was that there were times when I couldn’t figure out who was talking because there were too many characters involved and no “so and so said….” or “….said so and so” . Other than that I really enjoyed this book (after getting past the normal ARC editing mistakes LOL) One of the main reasons I enjoyed this book was because of the fact that it was so twisted and not your typical romance! For a debut novel H.P. Landry did an amazing job!
***ARC received in exchange for honest review***
