“This story has a small town, sweet and sexy romance feel with just an edge of emotion.” ~Under the Covers

WRECKED started off with a surprise.  First of all, because it’s really the first time I read this author with this type of book.  I’ve Shiloh’s contemporary romance before, but this one is very much so a sweet and sexy type.  So needless to say a surprise for me.

Zach and Abby were very popular child stars and had a successful show together.  Now adults, they’ve both stayed away from Hollywood.  Abby is a planner and had her life mapped out.  She’s checked every item off her list ahead of time, except the wedding.  Her fiance thought she was really meant to go back to her life of glitz and glamour and dumps her before the wedding claiming she’s not being herself.  Zach, who is and has always been her best friend, is left to try and pick up the broken pieces.

But I have to tell you about Zach, because this man is hot.  First of all, from child star to sort of bad boy…. Zach now owns a tattoo shop and yes, he’s a tattoo artist.  Not your typical career choice considering where he came from.  And then there’s the fact that yes, he has tats.  I admit I’m a goner for that.  But he’s also solid, and I don’t mean physically only.  He’s the best friend, reliable Zach, who you can always count on.  A shoulder to cry on.  He’s revolved his life around Abby because he’s always been in love with her.  Life is now giving him another chance and he’s risking it all to go after what he wants.

So he gives Abby a book called WRECK THIS JOURNAL.  And this book turns her planned life upside down and gives her that freedom to explore things and let life happen.  One of the things she wants to accomplish is to have an affair and Zach of course volunteers with the intention of making her see they are perfect for each other.

Abby’s planning nature is not something I personally understand because, well I just don’t operate that way.  So she got a little on my nerves at times.  But I have to give it to the girl, she threw her own caution to the wind and went for what she wanted!   And ended up with very sexy and sweet, caring and attentive, Zach in her bed and in her life.  I think you get the point that I may have a crush on him.

This story has a small town, sweet and sexy romance feel with just an edge of emotion that made this read a quick and enjoyable for me.  I’m definitely looking forward to reading more of this side of Ms. Walker.  If you like your heroes hot and sweet you have to read this one!
