Summary

Never in a million years did I think it would be Ian Parker who saved me....

I know I should stay away from Ian Parker.

But when my drug-dealing stepdad kicks me out, I have nowhere to go. Squatting in an abandoned shed on Ian’s grandpa’s farm seems like as good a plan as any.

Ian finds me there, of course, and he insists on me moving into his spare room. I should say no, but the appeal of a roof and a warm bed is too much. Not to mention Ian’s brown eyes and strong arms.

We’re nothing alike, but the spark between us is undeniable. My life is finally looking up.

Until I call the cops on my stepdad and unintentionally get my pregnant mom arrested.

Now I have to sacrifice my dreams to take care of my mom’s baby. She’s the only family I have left. Meanwhile, Ian’s band is taking off; his dreams are coming true.

Ian is my one chance at love. I just hope he doesn’t become the one chance that got away.

All About the Narrators

So, this is the first book by this author that I didn't like. The romance felt forced and nonexistent for me. I just never connected with the characters and get emotionally invested in either of their stories like this author is normally capable of doing. I will say that Stella Bloom and Rock Engle were great. Stella Bloom always has this really sweet voice. Its nice like when you meet someone and automatically know you want to become friends with them. Its warm and welcoming and I loved her. Rock Engle also had a voice that I was really feeling for a male heroine. If for no other reason, definitely listen for the narrators alone. You won't be disappointed.

Swoon....

3 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️ I’ve read other books by Brittainy and enjoyed them. The reason I gave The Wreckage Of Us a three star is because it was just missing something. I like Brittainy writing style. I even love the slow burn, however this book is a little to PG. I feel if you’re going to write a slow burn book then you need to give your readers a explosive hot scene and Brittainy dropped the ball on that. This wasn’t anything like her previous books. The storyline was good, but I found myself getting bored and actually skimming through chapters. Ian and Hazel love for each other was beautiful and there were definitely many swooning moments. Ian is every girls dream....Hot Rockstar, with tattoos and a southern gentleman. Who wouldn’t love that! 🥰 I know Hazel was beyond her years, but I found the situation she put herself in to be a like unrealistic. You really don’t see many girls her age willingly to take on that big of responsibility. I did love her sarcastic mouth and I even laughed out loud several times. Overall the story was okay, it dragged on a little to long and I wished the chemistry would’ve been more off the charts hot between Ian and Hazel. It just felt like the characters were lacking something. Maybe it was the nonexistent sex scenes. I don’t know. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I will definitely continue reading Brittainy books, just this book really didn’t do it for me. Audiobook: Stella Bloom performance is always a five-star. She truly brings life to her character. I’ve only listened to a couple other books with Rock Engle as the narrator and I enjoy his voice, However I do not think he was a good fit for this book. He sounded to old for Ian’s character and his women’s voice needs major work. lol

It was a decent book.

I did like it, I did finish it, yet it was pretty predictable what was going to happen. An easy listening while out for my walk

The male narrator is horrendous!

I thought the first half of this book was good. However the second part got annoying and seemed to be rushed at the end. I couldn’t tolerate the male narrator. I cringed when he started his sections.

Love Hazel and Ian’s Romance

This is a beautifully written story about how family can be put together by so much more than blood. Strong characters, high emotions and so much love. The audiobook was fantastic , both readers did an excellent job. I highly recommend this book.

Such a touching story

I loved the way this story came to life. The characters are written in a way that makes them feel real with real life worries and dreams. This story is full of sticky situations with near impossibly bleak outcomes, but with the will and perseverance written into the core of Holly, Ian, and their closest friends and family, their story is not another statistic. Well done. The entertainment factor was enhanced through the talented efforts of narrators Rock Engle and Stella Bloom. Their tried and true styles brought to life this beautiful story in the audiobook.

Good Story

I enjoy Brittney C. Cherry's writing. This book deals with real life issues such as drug addiction, abandonment etc.. Hazel deals with her moms drug use and abusive boyfriend. Ian deals with his parents drug use and abandonment as a young child. These two come together and somehow heal each other from the things that they thought defined them. Good storyline and characters.

The Wreckage of Us

Ian and Hazel. I don’t know what I was expecting with this one I wasn’t disappointed but I didn’t love it the way I normally do with this author. That is ok its nice to not always know what is coming. I think Hazel was my favorite character she really surprised me she didn’t complain about the way life was going. She made the most of it even if it was scary. She didn’t want anything handed to her she wanted to make it on her own. She was brave and maybe a little naïve but that is what Big Pa was there for he gave her the strength she didn’t know she needed. I like Ian but I didn’t really love him. I get why he was angry but he also had his grandfather and grandmother in his corner. I guess I just expected more of him. The band stuff was interesting if a little predictable. I really enjoyed the narration, Rock though maybe shouldn’t do the female voice but other than that loved their narration Stella is a favorite of mine.

My heart connected with this one

First of all, I don't cry very often while reading/listening to a book. But something about these 2 main characters and this story, and the hardships and sadness they went through in their lives really hit me. I found myself getting teary often. It wasn't a tear jerker, but it was an emotionally written story. I gave the narration 5 stars since I think they both did a really good job. However, as-is it was slow, so I had to speed it up some. But, once I did that, it worked great for me.

Great Small Town Book!

I love listening to Stella Bloom and Rock Engle was great as well! The Wreckage of Us was a good small town rock star romance. Hazel and Ian didn't get off to the best start. Each coming from different walks of life they never interacted until Hazel came looking for work on Big Pa's farm. Hazel was so down on her luck she just couldn't win but she never gave up and worked herself every minute to get what she wanted. At first Ian was honestly quite a tool but did a complete 180 (almost unbelievably so) once things started to progress with Hazel. Lots of things went down in this book and it almost felt like it was a few books combined together. Overall I enjoyed the story and I like Brittainy Cherry's writing.
