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.
Wrecked is the new standalone novel of deliciously dark, deeply emotional contemporary romance from J.B. Salsbury, the New York Times bestselling author of Split and The Fighting Series.
When Sawyer’s sister died, she had one wish: that Sawyer live life to the fullest. Now Sawyer is giving into her fate with the flip of a coin – heads or tails? Searching for her flight at the airport, Sawyer bumps into a handsome stranger…and suddenly fate doesn’t seem so scary.
Aden Colt is ticking time bomb. After leaving the Marines, unpredictable flashbacks, a hair-trigger temper, and paranoia make adjusting to civilian life hell. But he can’t seem to keep his distance from Sawyer. Even the best intentions can’t rid a soul of its scars, and between the two of them, Sawyer and Aden have more than their share of wounds…
