When I first read the prologue of Wrecked, I thought, what am I getting myself into? In just a few short pages, my heart was shattered and I, pun not intended, was an emotional wreck. I was sobbing on my couch and had to stop reading so that I could email the author to tell her just how much I loved the prologue and how it tore at my heartstrings. I want everyone to be able to feel the same emotions that I did, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet by simply saying, read this book.
The rest of the book didn't disappoint. I loved the push and pull between Mylie and Damien, and I found myself screaming at both of them so many times. I love when a book makes me feel so emotional towards the characters. I didn't know much about Wrecked before I started, so I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of suspense that was woven in with the romantic story line. It was a change for me, and one that I really enjoyed. The twists and turns had my head reeling, and I was not expecting the cliffhanger. I have to say, I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the series, as well as anything else written by H.P. Landry.
