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 tiny 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 laid-back 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.
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.
Just Another Book Bitch’s SPOILER FREE Review
*Arc provided for honest review
I must admit that lately some romance and/ or erotica novels have had me rolling my eyes and skimming pages. The relationships seem forced. The love scene seem cheesy and drawn out. (More for word count and to “out do” something or someone else) …. well. Salsbury has restored my faith!! A true artist when it comes to romance! I’m not a “sweet tooth typical romance girl.” (Not that I’m saying this is typical by any means but you hopefully get what I’m saying) I usually need large crazy twists, some darkness, death!! (Okay maybe not death….all the time *shrugs*) But I will admit. There are a few authors (very few!) that were born to write and their romances melt my black heart! Well, I’ve officially added Salsbury to that list! She had me swooning like a southern belle on Tara (#PointsForGoneWithTheWindReference).
I started this novel just before I left for vacation. I had so much to do and I found myself wondering. What are Sawyer and Aden doing? And how fast can I get back to reading!! (Adulting is hard!)
This novel touches on some very serious subjects and make no mistake it did make me cry, but it was SO MUCH MORE than that. J.B. Salsbury hooked me from the first page and if she didn’t have me tearing up, I was swooning, and if I wasn’t falling deeply in love with these amazing characters I was giggling at how sweet funny and cute they are. Aden and Swayer came to life on the pages and will forever have a place in my heart.
Sawyer and her sister, are day and night. While Sawyer is a planner… a list maker… a worrier… her sister is an adventurer, a spitfire…a fly by the seat of your pants kind of person. Everything changes when Sawyer’s sister asks for a favor. A huge favor.
“In a world where I live in black and white and absolutes, my sister lives in tie-dye and liberations. All answers are right answers and even negative consequences serve a bigger purpose. It’s insane. Anarchy. Chaos. Everything that makes my pulse race and my palms sweat.”
Aden Colt is a marine just trying to stay in the shadows and leave the past as far away from him as his tormented soul will allow.
“The call it trauma, a deeply distressing experience, but God… it’s so much more. it’s alive and breathing, it eats and rarely sleeps, it’s a monster that demands attention and never ever gives in. I understand hurting in a way that feels incurable, and no matter how many times people offer to hear it out, to take some of the burden, the idea that anyone would ever really understand the pain is laughable.
This is a beautiful stand alone novel I would highly recommend.
