My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wrecked is the new standalone novel of deliciously dark, deeply emotional contemporary romance from J.B. Salsbury, the New York Times bestselling author of Split and The Fighting Series.
When you can’t trust yourself, how can you ask anyone else to?
It’s been months since Aden Colt left the Army, and still the memories haunt him. When he moved into a boat off the California coast, he thought he’d found the perfect place to escape life.
Then Sawyer shows up, and turns his simple life upside down.
Beautiful and sophisticated, she seems out of place in this laidback beach town. Something is pushing her to experience everything she can—including Aden. But as much as he wants her, starting a relationship with Sawyer puts them both at risk.
For Aden, the past doesn’t stay there; it shows up unexpectedly, uncontrollably, and doesn’t care whose life it wrecks.

Okay I know I'm a little late here on posting this review, but you have to excuse me , I've been remodeling my house while my daughter was on vacation. And when you're a single person doing the renovation, it takes longer than normal. There's only one person doing the work, on top of working a full time job. So needless to say, reading got pushed to the back burner a little. Reno work is exhausting, but I'm totally in love with how it all turned out. Here's what I worked on, and you can see why it took me so long..
I'm also in love with this book.
This was a solid 4-4.5 star read for me. And quite an emotional one for many reasons. I feel like Wrecked is such a perfect title, because at some point in reading this book you do become emotionally wrecked. You have Celia's story, Aden's men, then the love story of Aden and Sawyer- destined for heartbreak. Not to mention Jenks. JB pulled out all the stops this time in making sure your heart was broken at some point of the book. like when outlining the book in was just thinking well if this doesn't break your heart, then this will, if not, then there's this .. or this ... or this .... yeesh. So many feels.
I think one thing I liked the most about this book was seeing Sawyer grow. How Aden pushed her in so many ways, outside of her protective shell , and the things she got to see and learn about the world, but more importantly herself. We also get to see this struggle that Aden fights on a daily basis. Not only with his demons, but his addiction, his guilt. Guilt that you know has to be the reality for so many out there.
There were so many lines that I loved from this book. Give me time to add them, but I felt like this book was more highlighted with quotes I loved, than not.
