Wrecked by Jeannine Colette

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?

That's me.

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 definitely mutual.

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 different.

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.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Never judge a book by its cover is the message to take away here.  For the outside world Leah is the sexy bar tender always ready to have a good time, drinking, confident and outgoing.  The reality is that she has worked really hard to become bar owner and a responsible one at that.  An accident which sees her arrested could potentially ruin this opportunity for her.  Police officer Adam comes to her rescue and offers an option that won't take her future away.  Adam, knight in shining armour, actually has an ulterior motive: to win Leah around and to spend the rest of his life with her.

Leah and Adam both have a stubbornness to them that prevents them for giving in easily to their pasts.  Both are passionate in everything that they do but Leah needs to show that she can be serious about things too.

This was a really good read with characters that get under your skin, plus an amazing cast of supporting characters.  The plot bubbling on underneath the surface of this book added the right amount of tension to this read and gave it an additional dimension.
