WRECKED by Jeannine Colette
New Adult Contemporary Romance
Take one sexy bartender. Add a badass
cop. A splash of sweet, that’s me. One sour, that’s him… and serve over ice.
That’s how you’ll get to my current situation.You know the girl – the one who commands the scene, bottle of liquor in hand,
pouring liquid fire into the willing throats of patrons as they let loose at
the local bar?
I may be known as the town party girl, but in reality I’m this close to
my dream of opening my own bar – McConaugheys. Yes, it will be named after the
acclaimed actor. What can I say? I’m a sucker for that sexy Texan.
Everything was going as planned until the night I had a few drinks and accepted
a ride home from a friend. A misunderstanding leads to an arrest, and now I’m
at the mercy of the one man I can’t stand, and trust me, the feeling is
Adam Reingold is six-feet-tall and built like a stallion — the man is the
epitome of male. He also happens to be the town narc and hates my guts. There’s
a story to our past and it’s not a pretty one.
So, now, here I am, chained to him for the summer like a hardened criminal,
doing whatever he tells me to do. Problem is, I can’t help but look at him when
he’s not watching and wonder what our future could be like if things were
There are so many reasons why he’s all wrong for me. Even more reasons why I
need to stay away from him.
It’s a cocktail of trouble. Best served
shaken, not stirred.
Wrecked by Jeannine Colette
Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
Jeannine Colette is another author that I thought I had read her books before but, it may have been that I just promoted her books on my blog so that her name was just familiar. Well let me tell you I really am glad that I chose to read Wrecked. I really enjoyed Wrecked this book. This is a standalone book within a series and has an HEA.
After reading a couple of the reviews I did find out that both Leah Marie Paige and Adam Reingold were in Reckless Abandon.
Leah doesn’t like Adam Reingold mostly because she thought he didn’t like her. From an event that happened when they were in high school. I can’t go into detail here because I don’t want to give away any of the story.
The event that happened to them changed their lives forever or at least it did Adams. Adam became the town narc and is the town Sherriff. Leah knew she wanted to open a bar. So, she has saved her money and her parents were also investing in her. By the way, I love Leah’s dad. I didn’t like that she calls her parents by their first names though. Maybe I am a bit old fashioned when it comes to that. Anyway, I digress. Leah is going to call her bar McConaughey’s. Yes, she is a BIG Matthew McConaughey’s fan.
Through a car accident that was not her fault, other than maybe bad judgement of having a supposed friend drive her home after getting drunk Adam re-enters her life. (not that Adam hasn’t been around, he just wasn’t involved with her). And, the story goes on from here.
I love Adams & Leah’s story. I look forward to reading more books from Jeannine Colette! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I give Wrecked 5 Stars.
