After a chance meeting draws them together, the two will learn love often finds those who aren't necessarily looking, and that there are moments in life that hold within them all the power to wreck you.



First off, a really big THANK YOU to Jennifer Snyder for providing me with a copy of this AWESOME book in exchange for an honest review.

Wreck You is the third installment of the Coldcreek Series, but can be read as a stand-alone without any problems.

This well-written story is told from two alternating perspectives, Lauren and Ian.  It was easy to follow and was fun to read both sides.  Lauren is spunky, confident, independent, flirtatious and funny.  I totally liked her character right from the start.  I especially liked how she handled the Jimmy/Greece fiasco.  The way she handled that just showed how independent she was and didn’t need a man to make her feel whole.   I instantly fell in love with Ian.  He is the strong silent type who is oh so sexy and has a really big heart.  I really liked the fact that he had a pit bull for a pet and that Ms. Snyder incorporated the fact that not all pit bulls are bad…..it’s the owners that raise them to be either good or bad.  Kudos for that Ms. Snyder! Even though Lauren and Ian are complete opposites, their chemistry just clicks and you can’t help but fall in love with them and cheer on the relationship that blossoms right before your eyes.

Even though Lauren was in a relationship (if you can even call it that) with Jimmy for about half of the book, I’m not going to mentioned much about him because quite frankly, he’s a jerk.  What he did was totally ludicrous in my opinion and I was so happy when Lauren basically kicked him to the sidewalk.  My favorite line though was when Lauren told him where he could find sympathy – absolutely priceless (and I’m going to steal that line whenever possible!).  What did she say, you ask?  Well, you’re just going to have to read the story to find out!

I honestly believe that Jennifer Snyder can do no wrong with her books and Wreck You is another amazing book written by her.  I enjoyed this book so much that once I started reading, I was immediately drawn into Lauren and Ian’s story and could not put it down until I finished.  I loved all the characters.  They are ‘real’ people who the reader can totally relate to. 

There is no need to look any further if you are looking for a well-written book with interesting characters, witty dialogue and some steamy love scenes, because it's all here in this incredible book that is guaranteed to make you smile and love the outcome.  I highly recommend this book!
