Review: Wreck Me by JL Mac

February 25, 2013
Life can be cruel. People can be ruthless and evil. The world can be cold and uninviting. No one knows these things better than Josephine Geroux. By her own definition, she is a twenty-five year old “nobody with nothing,” and she is content to stay that way. Growing up an orphan has made her tough and indifferent to the people around her until she meets a strangely familiar man with a face that haunts her for reasons she can’t understand.

Despite the pain that will inevitably ensue, she makes it her mission to discover what parts of her tragic puzzle she is missing. On her journey to discovering why the she feels an alarming connection to an absolute stranger, her greatest fear is reawakening the demons and darkness from the past that will surely overtake her if she lets her guard down. 

Little does Josephine know that the past should be the least of her worries. She is toying with a man who has already broken her heart once. She just doesn’t realize it.
Although she makes it a point to avoid interactions with others, Josephine’s life becomes entangled with the enigmatic stranger. Before she realizes it, she has given herself over to the one person who is close enough to wreck her.
Hmmmm where to start? Wreck Me is about a young girl, Jo, whose family was killed in a car accident at a young age. She spent the remainder of her childhood living on the streets until she got a job at a book store. Since the death of her family, she's closed herself off to anyone. She's feisty, funny but never gets to know anyone. 

Her relationship with her boss, Sutton, is her closest relationship. They have such a love/hate dynamic... or maybe it's a hate/hate relationship. We're not really sure. 

One day, she runs into Damon who absolutely draws her in. With the intentions of a one night stand, she lets him take her out. But when sparks fly, and a sense of familiarity sets in, they've decided to let this attraction run it's course. 

But Damon has a secret that could destroy them both. 

Now, early on, I knew what the secret was. About 19 pages in, it clicked and I spent the remaining time of reading overwhelmed by my angst, hoping it wasn't true. I kept saying "oh no."  So with a obvious plot light, why did I give it 4 1/2 stars? Because not only was the story awesome, there were some twists and turns that I DID NOT expect.  

This book really drew me in and made me want to keep going and has me itching for the second book. I NEED MORE!!!
Grams and Captain. A couple of feisty older folks. 
The easily predicted "surprise"
"You were out cold and it's the only time that dirty ass mouth of yours is shut so I figured I had better savor the moment while I could"
