Wrecked by Emily Snow
Wrecked is the story of Evie, a college student repeating her freshman year at another school because of all the mistakes she had made the previous year. A music major, Evie is partnered up with a mentor who will help coach her through voice lessons. But she has a problem. Evie has met Rhys, her mentor. before and he doesn’t remember her. But he is connected to one of the worst moments of her life…
I enjoyed reading this book, but a number of aspects about it made the book fall flat. For one, the romance/relationship between Evie and Rhys felt very forced to me. There was obviously an attraction between the two of them, but the “relationship” happened very quickly and there was no building up to it. For the beginning of the book the main character spent more time dealing with the issues of everyone around her than she did with Rhys, and then they jumped right in like she had been around him all along, and she really hadn’t. The two didn’t even know each other, and then all of the sudden they were enamored with each other.
Despite this, the book really picked up in the second half, and that’s where Evie as a character really began to grow. She dealt with her painful past and did her best to become a better person, even if she was hiding things from Rhys that as a reader, we knew would come back to bite her in the ass.
I almost never mention this, but there were a few typos that took my focus away from the book. I’m not normally one to nitpick this, but since this wasn’t an arc, and it happened more than 3 times, it really started to get on my nerves. So hopefully they go back and fix these small mistakes if possible!
An enjoyable read, but nothing astounding.
