Review: Wrecked by Jeannine Colette

Take one sexy bartender. Add a badass cop. A splash of 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. Leah Marie Paige.

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 definitely mutual.

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 different.

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.

5 "Letting him into my kitchen." Stars

There's a fine line between love and hate, sometimes they're one in the same. A brittle balance of stubborn wills and ego, if you will. The combination of past loves and severed friendships that leave YOU, your heart, your mind, your soul Wrecked.

I've been Wrecked.

Jeannine Colette returns with Wrecked, a standalone story that is provocative while exuding such sweetness, tender, and fragile moments. A slow burn of flashbacks and fond memories... of the boy who got away... of the boy who lost the game of life. This is what contemporary romance is all about!! Bring on the drama and drown me in angst!

'All right, all right, all right! Let's get this party started!'

Leah Paige has the reputation as a party girl, the town joke, and being a bar maid just adds fuel to the fire of the punchline that is her life in this small town in Iowa. Welcome to Cedar Springs, folks!

Broody, sour faced Adam Reingold. He wasn't always this way. Seems life has a way of changing people. Traumatic, earth shattering events will harden the softest of men. Deep inside he hasn't changed much, nor did he forget any time spent with her. Her. Leah. His best friend's girlfriend.

"Funny thing about trying to distance yourself from someone when you're in a tight space is, the further you move away from each other, the closer you become."

The highs and lows, ups and downs, through the twists and turns of life and their story I was sucked in from the first chapter. I had to know more. I had my hunches and suspicions, but never did I think =ALL OF THIS= would transpire. Holy. Freaking. Crap. Honestly, I'm in shock... perhaps its awe... I don't even know. I just can't even when it comes to Jeannine Colette!! Her words, the life she breathes into the story and characters. The way her words and magical prose makes you feel, it's as if you're living this book. GAH!! It's a book nerd's fantasy come to life. There's just so much to this book, the element of surprise, heartache, the clutching grip of all the angst. Sexual tension, quirky a-dork-able parents. It has it all!!

'He f**ks me hard.
He loves me sweet.'

Don't miss out on this un-put-down-able, addictive AF, TOP READ of 2017!!
