Synopsis: 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'd been wanting to read this book since the cover was revealed as the cover is pretty unique and it drew me right in! I have to say though that I didn't really enjoy the story as much as I was expecting too! I did like it, but I didn't fall in love with it which is why I gave it four starts and not five! The plot of this book did confuse me at times! I felt like there was a lot going on and sometimes I had to really pay attention to make sure I didn't miss anything! The plot also started to confuse me as it progressed! I enjoyed it though! I wasn't expecting the plot to confuse me, but it did a little! It was written really well though! There were also some twists and turns to keep it interesting and to keep me wanting to find out what was going to happen next! Once I started to understand the plot I really enjoyed it! It was full of suspense and it kept me guessing! The characters were amazing as a whole, but the main female character did annoy me slightly! The main female character was Mylie and she infuriated me at certain points in this book! I didn't like that she sort of flirted with other guys when she was really in love with the one guy that infuriated her! She did eventually realise who she really loved, but it really annoyed me that she flirted with quite a few other guys! Apart from that I really liked Mylie! She went through quite a lot in this book and I felt really sorry for her! She was strong though and she held her head high during this book which made me admire her! Damien was the main male character and he was hot! I loved how protective he was of Mylie and how much he loved her! I could tell that he had genuine feelings for her as soon as he met her and to see those feelings develop was amazing! There was also quite a lot of sexual tension between Mylie and Damien in this book! I loved this as it made Mylie and Damien's relationship better and I really enjoyed it! This book was also written from both Mylie and Damien's point of views! This was definitely essential as there was quite a lot going on in the book and it was easier to understand it all through both characters point of views! The secondary characters in this book added a lot to the story! I enjoyed them and also what they all brought to the story! I thought that this book was a standalone when I first heard about it, but then I discovered that it's a series! I will definitely continue reading it and I'm looking forward to seeing where it's going to go next! As I said the cover is quite unique! I'm in love with it and I love how well it suits the book! Big thank you to H.P. Landry for a copy of Wrecked and to Girls Heart Books for having me on the Blog Tour!
