One night was all it took for everything to change.
From college student to guardian in a single breath.
My siblings became my world.
No time for date nights or romantic dreams.
I traded quiet weekends for sleepless nights.
Giving my all to make sure they were cared for.
But Griffin had a brokenness that called to me—one that mirrored my own.
Gruff and just a little bit reckless.
He was the last thing I needed. But everything I wanted.
Only someone isn’t happy about this new life I’m building.
Deciding to set fire to everything I hold close.
And when the smoke clears, there might be only ashes left behind…
4.5 Heart Review by Ashley
I have been waiting for Caelyn's story since I first started this series. She had always been there, in the periphery and I was so glad to get to know her pain and joy.
I absolutely loved Caelyn and Griffin. Both great people. Both a bit broken. Guarded. Lonely. Changed from the tragedies that had shaken them in the past. But in the other, they found a safe place to land. To share their pain. Ease the burden. Laugh again. Especially as Will, Mia and Ava (Caelyn's siblings) wormed their way into Griffin's heart. But when an unknown someone sets their sights on Caelyn, all bets are off. Griffin pulls out all the stops to ensure her safety and the safety of the tiny terrors.
Wrecked Palace made my heart ache and race and soar in equal measures. Griffin and Caelyn's slow burning romance was so tender, so sweet, so pure that I couldn't help but root for them. My favorite thing was how they loved each other for all that they were and all that they weren't. They saw past each other's fears and faults to the dreams and hope and love that lived inside. And that ending...hello! I am so ready to see how Catherine Cowles is going to shake up Anchor Island again!
