Review of Wrecked by Alyssa Rose Ivy

When your past catches up, it's time to stop running.

Jake Mathews messed up yet again— but this time his misstep lands him in the hospital. He wakes up to find the girl of his dreams and the memory of having his deepest secret revealed.

Emily Taylor needs a break. She's been working double shifts as a nurse just to pay the bills while trying to heal a broken heart. The last thing she needs is to fall for a patient.

Strapped with community service and the knowledge that he's disappointed everyone in his life, Jake is determined not to let Emily slip through his fingers. Emily wants Jake, but can she really open herself up to heartache again?



I love all of Ayssa's books.  They are all so beautifully written.  This book was as well.  The writing flowed smoothly and I was quickly wrapped up in the story.  This is the third book in the Clayton Falls series and it was excellent.  

I really enjoyed Jake's character in Veer and really wanted to read more of him.  Getting to know Emily was fun too.  She was a very likeable character and I felt for her throughout the entire story.  Being in her situation is tough.  Anyone going through her trials would be scared too.

Back to Jake, yummy.  He's obviously a sexy stud.  He's also the very thing that Emily is scared to death of.  I think the way Jake was forced to give back to the community was a creative punishment and it made me like him more after a horrible situation.

The book had a very poetic storyline and a feel good ending. The only thing that I didn't like, was the lack of climactic situations.  There were a few scenes that got close, but there was really no climax in the book.  It was just one nice flowing story.  Don't get me wrong, I love happy romances.  This was just missing the trials and tribulations that I expected to go on.  

This book was a great read overall and I think as with all of Alyssa's books, Wrecked is a must read.  Be sure to pick up your copy when it releases!  I give this addition to the Clayton Falls series four glittery stars for sucking me into a beautiful romance!
