Restore Me by J.L. Mac
Navigating the world alone is all Josephine Geroux has ever known. Life altering tragedy struck early on for her. She endured an admirable struggle through her youth and learned the hard way how to adapt and survive. She managed to arrive at adulthood in one piece in spite of it all.
After such chaos, maintaining a life free of complications is a priority for her. Everything changed when a man with amber eyes came through her door and claimed her heart. She fell hard in more ways than one. The pull between Jo and Damon seemed like fate bringing things full circle.
With another devastating loss looming, Jo fights to hold on to the very thing that brought her to her knees. She finds herself torn between a promising future and clinging to a devastating past. But that’s not the most worrisome problem on her hands.
She must convince more than just herself to let the past stay in the past, where it belongs, but on her journey to find closure and resolution, she does the exact opposite. An old wound caused by a heinous act becomes exposed for what it is. The truth is catastrophic and Jo is helpless, watching as the ruins of her fragile world endure more turmoil.
Can something conceived from tragedy and malice end well? Can something so completely poisoned conquer adversity? Jo is left to make a decision; accept the circumstances she finds herself in or fight with unwavering ferocity to restore what has been damaged.
My rate & take
Heat Index 3 ☼☼☼
When you open up and let love in, sometimes life slips right in too with some hard realities and all of sudden you find you have much more to lose than you ever did.
That above is exactly what is going on with our main female lead in this the second book of the Wrecked series.
The author did a very decent job of writing the emotional journey for the female character but I will say the male character seemed like he came out of the worst part of the difficulties much more easily than I would have expected... maybe he was just being the stoic male.
Still in all a very entertaining story and I even got surprised by a plot twist I did not see coming...and I am intrigued by another plot development that won't be fully divulged until book three. Ah the wait and wait for a publication date!! T'is the bane (well one of them anyway) of my existence.
