As often happens when I’m reading a series and there’s a side character that has a pretty prominent role, I tend to try to figure out what that character is thinking and feeling based on their actions. But often times once I’m able to read from that character’s perspective, things aren’t quite the way I imagined them. I’ve been getting mixed messages about Tristan throughout the series. During Breaking Nova and Saving Quinton, Tristan seems to be Quinton’s gateway into this life of drugs and various other horribleness. While meth is a no joke drug, Tristan’s preferred drug of choice seemed to be heroine, which Quinton doesn’t branch out into until he’s hit rock bottom. But yet, Tristan didn’t ever seem to have the emotional reasons that Quinton did to get into drugs in the first place. And Tristan went to rehab and got clean first. Yet as I said, all is not as it appears. Turns out, Tristan does have emotional reasons (even though no reason is good enough) to seek solace in drugs. And just because Tristan got clean first doesn’t mean anything. He shows how truly difficult it is to stay clean and how addiction always stays with you.
Avery’s history is no picnic. She grew up around drugs. Her mother is an addict and all she ever wanted to do was “get out”. Get out of that house, get out of that town, get out of that lifestyle. So she latches on to the first hope she sees for escape. It just happens to be via an unworthy man. Though Conner doesn’t appear to have any addictions when he and Avery first meet, he gets dragged into that world, and Avery allows herself to get pulled in as well. Avery would have to have had such a background, I think, in order to make a good match for Tristan. Tristan would have a much harder time trusting that she’s not going to view him as complete trash had she not had her own history of mistakes behind her.
Tristan and Avery’s story does have a little too much parallel for me. Jessica Sorensen not only swaps narrators between both characters, but she also chooses to insert flashbacks from both characters too. For some reason, I don’t seem to mind when a character is having a memory. Yet, I find myself annoyed when the past is written as if it’s the present. You know…like time-jumping. That just doesn’t always sit right with me. So add to that the fact that Tristan and Avery were often experiencing very similar circumstances and events “at the exact same time” throughout their pasts and present. I don’t know…I guess when two characters’ lives are too similar or they think the same word-for-word thoughts I just find that hard to believe. So this aspect of Wreck Me wasn’t my favorite.
I did enjoy that Tristan and Avery had a pretty slow building relationship. A connection was already there from when they met before, but they took time to get to know each other. Each one had to come to terms with their past and find a way to share what they’d been through with the other. It felt authentic. But once things start happening they happen perhaps a little too quickly. The physical boundaries are blown. And the conflict of Avery’s ex-husband, Conner, just seemed to be solved too easily for me.
Wreck Me was a pretty enjoyable read. I was hooked into the story quickly once I got started, and I didn’t really want to put it down. I had a few small issues with the parallels of Tristan and Avery’s pasts, the jumps in chronology, and with how quickly things wrapped up, but that didn’t really change my overall feel of the book. Wreck Me gets 4 Stars. Do be aware about language though. Jessica Sorensen’s characters have no qualms with the f-bomb. Have you read Wreck Me? What did you think? Let me know!
Enter Tristan! Tristan is a guy who has been through a lot. His sister died in a car accident & his parents, particularly his mother, wishes it were him instead. Tristan turns to drugs and doesn't care about anyone or anything. After a long time of not caring Tristan decides to get help. He then decides to join his cousin Quinton and Quinton's girlfriend Nova as they travel around and help Habitat for Humanity. This is where he meets Avery.
From the moment they meet Tristan is drawn to Avery. There's just something different and mysterious about her. They have a moment but Avery has a "no guy" rule she has set for herself vowing that she will never let another man in after what Conner did to her. When Avery was with Conner something tragic happens to her but she's given a second chance at life & she can't help but think just maybe she's supposed to be helping Tristan. The closer they get the more Avery becomes worried that she won't be able to keep her "no guy" rule. But the real question I think is, is Avery supposed to be helping Tristan or is Tristan supposed to be helping Avery?
Ok so I get that Avery has been through some serious tough times in her life but I kept thinking, "damn girl, you got a hot, somewhat broken, generous, caring guy standing in front of you. You better jump on that like 5 minutes ago." Now I'll be honest, when I was reading the Nova series and we were getting to know Tristan, I wasn't that interested in him. His character just didn't seem like he was someone I wanted to read about and that's why it took me so long to start Wreck Me. My God was I wrong. I think I'm in love with Tristan now.
So...will Avery keep her wall up forever or will she knock it down and allow Tristan into her world? Well I guess you will just have to read it to find out. Trust me, you want to read this story. Jessica Sorensen never ever disappoints me and I should've known that since she was writing this story it was going to be good. I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to read it.
