Review: Wrecked

Title - Wrecked
Author - Alyssa Rose Ivy
Series - Clayton Falls #3
Genre - Romance
Published - April 30th 2013

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?

Jake’s past has caught up with him the truth about how he tried to break up Molly and Ben comes out. He takes off leaving before they can confront him about what’s happened having been drinking doesn’t bode well because he crashes his car. Next thing he knows he’s in the waking up in the ICU being taken care of by the most beautiful women he’s ever met. Emily is instantly attracted to Jake but he’s her patient and she doesn’t need a man in her life. When Jake’s determined to have a date with Emily she gives him her number but doesn’t expect him to call.

After getting out of the hospital, Jake surprises Emily by calling and inviting her to do only one catch he can’t drive. Emily drives to Clayton Falls not expecting anything to happen with Jake but what she finds is a connection that leaves her wanting more. Emily has a past that has changed her life forever and could ruin everything between her and Jake. She decides to wait before telling him but when he suddenly finds out could it ruin everything for them or only make them stronger?

I really liked Jake in the prior books and was thrilled that we would get his story. Jake has issues he almost ruined his brothers chance at happiness, his football career didn’t work out and he’s never really been in love before. Emily’s life isn’t easy either she has bills, responsibilities and still a reason to work hard. She doesn’t need a man but after years of being single maybe she needs him as bad as he her.

Wrecked is the third installment in the Clayton Falls series which has been a fantastic series. I was super excited we are going to get Jake’s story after all he’s been influential in the prior books. I really connected with both characters they each have a spot in my heart and may be my favorite couple of the three. I really enjoyed the writing style of the series we get the story with the steamy moments but they aren’t overwhelming which I enjoyed. The author also gives us both points of view from the characters in the book which I think enhances the story. Wrecked is a HEA romance that steals your heart and leaves you feeling good. I honestly loved Wrecked it was well written and worth reading and I know I’ll read it again.                                      5 out of 5 stars
