“Life is a series of commas, not periods.”
Wrecked by Wrecked, that is how I feel today, but Wrecked in a good way, yes it was emotional at times and the tears freely fell, but most of all was that sense of when you turn the last page and realise that you have read a fantastic book. Jeannine Colette is an author that was introduced to me by a friend and for that I will be eternally grateful. Having read every single book this author has written I can say hand on heart that this is her best book by a country mile and I never thought I would say that seeing as how much I adored Wild Abandon.
Sometimes a book and its characters grab you from the get go and this was such an instance. Jeannine Colette created lovable, honest, real, relatable characters that everyone will be able to resonate with. Two characters that were chalk and cheese yet had so much in common. Two characters that were best friends until they weren’t, two characters that had that undeniable chemistry when they were younger but could never act upon it. Now seven years later it is their turn. Seven years of hurt, frustration and animosity. Seven years of denying what was written in the stars all along. Seven years was a long time but when their paths cross once again, seven years that dissolved in a heartbeat.
“He’s not the monster I thought he’d become. He’s a saint. An angel to my devil.”
These two characters have appeared in previous Jeannine Colette books but never too much to truly get a grip of them and as such this can be read as a standalone. Leah was a quirky character, wildly confident, yet vulnerable, a face of happiness and yet inside was a woman emotionally stifled by her past. Leah was a woman you would want to be best friends with, her personality infectious and her demeanour and what she stands for insanely charming. Leah was a woman I respected, a character I fell insanely in love with and a woman I desperately wanted to find her happy ever after, if anyone deserved it…Leah did.
“…He takes her bowling. You know who bowls? Real couples – that’s who. It’s so Joanie and Chachi that I can’t even.”
Adam was a cop, extremely professional, protective and comes across as aloof and a bit of an a**hole in the first instance. But, and this is a huge but, he is far from an a**hole, so far from an a**hole that a**holes don’t exist. This was Adam’s protection. He was a man that again was stifled emotionally by his past, a past that he has in common with Leah. A past that had determined his future in more ways than one. A man that was determined to make a difference. Adam had a heart of gold, a heart he also had in common with Leah. Adam was a man that was easy to fall in love with.
“I was just trying to figure out if I should take you back to your house, like a gentleman, or to mine, like a criminal.”
Jeannine Colette delivers the slow burn to rival all slow burns. This book kept me on the edge of my seat for an age. Jeannine Colette decimated my heart with one of the most emotional scenes I have ever had the pleasure of reading. A scene that I read so many times as I took in its raw, unadulterated, emotion, passion and honesty. A scene that seriously broke me and yet uplifted me on the flip side. But this book was far from just about the tears.
“I hadn’t just lost my first love that day. I’d also lost my last.”
Jeannine Colette delivered on point dialogue and Leah’s quirkiness to Adam’s inherent professionalism delivered some fantastic scenes that will have you grinning from ear to ear. As these two meander through the path of reconnection your heart will beat faster and the swoon worthy moments will have you grinning from ear to ear. This book ticked all my boxes. Seriously fantastic and this will be a book that I re-read time and time again and will definitely be on my favourites list at the end of the year. Once again Jeannine Colette delivered, I have never had a “bad” book from her and I wish that this author would get the notoriety that she deserves. If you haven’t read this author before, this is a great place to start. Fall in love with her words like I did.
I am not even ashamed to admit that at around 74% into the story I was crying. My heart hurt for Leah when she was reliving her memories of Brad. And when she revealed what Adam had said to her seven years earlier, my heart broke. Despite their differences, Adam and Leah were perfect for one another! I liked the tension and the chemistry between them. I liked the friendships in this book and the danger towards the end had me on the edge of my seat. Although I wanted to hate Adam for lying to Leah, I was happy that she got to help others out by building houses. Luke and his red speedo’s was hilarious and Adam’s pov/proposal made me swoon. I liked getting his point of view at the end and would have liked more.
The storyline for this book is easy to follow and a really enjoyable read.
Leah Paige and Adam Reingold were once best friends. After a heart-breaking event in their life, they stopped talking. After seven years of silence and glares between them, Leah is thrown back into Adam’s life and vice versa. When Leah gets arrested for a crime she did not commit, she is forced to do community service. Spending her days building houses with Adam causes them both to re evaluate each other. Adam’s stubbornness causes him to judge Leah and everything she does. Leah sets about proving to Adam she is not what he and everybody in town thinks. She opens her heart and shows him the layers to her soul. As he father would say, she opens her kitchen to him. As the two spend more time together, an old attraction between them starts to build once again. When Leah realises the depth to her feelings for the moody cop, will she open up to love or deny it? Will she and Adam get a second chance?
