When you can't trust yourself, how can you ask anyone else to?

It's been months since Aden Colt left the Army, and still the memories haunt him. When he moved into a tiny boat off the California coast, he thought he'd found the perfect place to escape life. Then Sawyer shows up and turns his simple life upside down. Beautiful and sophisticated, she seems out of place in this laid-back beach town. Something is pushing her to experience everything she can-including Aden. But as much as he wants her, starting a relationship with Sawyer puts them both at risk. For Aden, the past doesn't stay there; it shows up unexpectedly, uncontrollably, and doesn't care whose life it wrecks.

MY REVIEW

Sawyer was a beautiful woman trapped in a stagnant life of her own making. But life delivers her a twist when her sister makes a strange request framed as a dying wish. An obligation becomes Sawyer's wake-up call, offering her her first taste of freedom and adventure and Aden is there to experience it all with her.

Aden was an honorable soldier dealing with PTSD and survivor's guilt. He's isolated himself from his family and has very few people in his life who mean anything to him. He finds some sort of peace at the bottom of a bottle or at sea. He's definitely not looking to make a lasting impression on anyone or have any sort of meaningful relationship. He's unworthy, at least in his eyes. But Sawyer is the first person who really resonates with him. As hard as they both try to convince themselves to keep it casual, the strength of their feelings just wouldn't quit and they were pulled closer together.

"I may not need him. He may be the worst possible person for me. But I want him in a way I can't even begin to understand."

This was such a sweetly beautiful story. Wrecked gripped me from the start and by the end, I found it hard to let go. It was raw and it was deep. It was a story about life, loss, grief, hope, love, and new beginnings. Ultimately it came down to two broken souls who thankfully found healing and solace and love within one another.
