Grace Wells’ life is one long party until her world is turned upside down. When her family’s business goes under, she’s left with nothing. Goodbye mansion in the Hollywood Hills. Goodbye weekends spent sipping cocktails while fishing for the latest hotties. Goodbye shopping. Goodbye expensive cars. Worst of all... goodbye Los Angeles.
Now Grace is headed to Crystal Brook, North Carolina where she's left to practically fend for herself. With her inheritance down the drain, Grace is left having to start a new life—a task which seems nearly impossible. Until she catches sight of the gorgeous Luke Anderson who, cha-ching, is from a billionaire banking family.
Suddenly, Grace's luck seems to have turned around. Once she snags Luke and makes him her husband, she can return to her old pampered life. Unfortunately, Luke sees right through her. After all, he’s spent his entire life trying to escape her kind.
But Grace is on a mission and what Grace wants, Grace gets.
And this time, she gets more than she bargained for.
"Wrecked" is another book that's taken place in the small town of Crystal Brook and is part of the Crystal Brook Billionaires series. With that said, it is a full-sized STANDALONE novel with an HEA and NO CLIFFHANGERS.
RATING: 4 STARS
REVIEW: Grace's dad loses his business and he sends Grace to live with her aunt in uncle in a small town much different from her materialistic life in L.A. She spins a lie with her best friend to keep her friends and boyfriend in the dark back in L.A. about where she really is... because she doesn't want to face reality about her and her dad's broke new reality. She soon realizes that her friends are not too concerned with her absence, nor does her boyfriend even bother to text or call to find out if she is settling in well at NYU.
Grace decides to take a bike ride to explore her new surroundings and bumps into a local billionaire who runs the food pantry in town to help those in need. Although her sights are zeroed in on Luke, he is less than flattered with the new comer. Her solution is to strategically land a new job at Luke's business in order to get the chance to show him that there is more to her than meets the eye. However, if her plan fails, she'll have to resort to finding her next billionaire on sugardaddy.com
Maybe Luke misunderstood Grace when they first met. Is she really more than a spoiled brat who doesn't have to work for what she wants?
Wrecked was a fun/cute romance read with a bit of deceit, humor, steam, and an HEA. This was an enjoyable read from Jessica Blake who is a new to me author in 2016. I will definitely pick up other books by this author. I received an well-written ARC in exchange for my honest review. I flew through this book in only one long night. Great read & recommended.
