My past taught me to play it safe.
To stay far away from handsome men who promised it all.
My life was good without them. Stable, secure, predictable.
But one kiss showed me that I’d been playing it safe for far too long.
One night, and all I wanted was more of his wildfire.
One challenge and my carefully constructed walls tumbled down.
Amidst the rubble, I realized there was more to this man than I ever dreamed.
When everything fell apart, he showed me what it meant to stay.
How to truly live.
But some demons don’t stay buried.
The past can come knocking when you least expect.
And the life he’s showing me might be shorter than either of us expected…
4 Heart Review by Ashley
I have been itching to get back to Anchor Island and am so happy Catherine Cowles took me back there! And let me tell you Perfect Wreckage was the not so happy return I was waiting for. From the very first chapter I was #TeamKenna and the need to see something good happen to her lasted all the way through.
I loved Kenna's backbone of steel. How she took every punch that life threw her way and worked through it in her own way. Pushing it all down worked for her, until it didn't. Because of Crosby. They were fast to jump into bed but slow to develop a friendship. But when Kenna's past catches up with her present and tries to mess with her future, it was Crosby who stepped up and in.
With awful parents, vindictive exes, amazing friendships, witty banter and the kind of drama that only a small town can bring, Perfect Wreckage was a true delight to read. Kenna and Crosby's journey to happiness was riddled with pain and longing but that ending left me with all the happy flutters with the promise of forever.
