Seven years ago, my life changed forever. One accident and the person I saw in the mirror no longer resembled the woman I used to be. I was lost and confused inside my own body. I felt alone and disconnected from the world, carrying the incredible weight of guilt and loss that wasn’t even mine to harbor.

Then fate led me to Leo James. He taught me that crazy could be perfectly normal and it shouldn’t hurt to breathe. Don’t get me wrong. Leo isn’t perfect. He has his own cross to bear, and the truth is, that might be why I fell for him in the first place. But despite everything he does for me, learning to forgive myself is infinitely harder than overlooking the flaws of another.

Now, the secrets and lies of our past have begun to dictate our future—threatening to ruin us before we get the chance to try. Perhaps we were cursed from the start. Or maybe, just maybe, the remnants of our fractured lives will fit together to form one whole, where love isn’t questioned and being happy is…well, easy.

Can a second broken soul be enough to fill the voids of my own? Or will such scarred pasts prove too much for our love alone to overcome?

Book 3 in the Wrecked & Ruined series, it was definitely my favourite. When I heard that we were getting a book for Sarah I was in utter shock, she is a terribly broken and crazy lady who was mean to her ex-husband and most of the people around her. Apparently Leo is a character in her stand alone book Among the Echoes, which I haven’t read yet but I fell in love with him almost immediately.

This book was swoony and the thing I loved most about it was the banter. Sarah and Leo were perfect for each other and with her tragic past and the guilt, depression and PTSD that he suffers from, they were able to help each other see the good and support each other through the bad.

“I’m not going anywhere. We might be a mess, but you’re my mess, Sarah”
