“The feeling I have in this very moment, after not seeing her for so long, will haunt me forever, reminding me why I left to begin with.”
For as long as I can remember, Easton Crews has been off-limits. As much as it kills me, that’s never going to change.
After his little disappearing act three years ago, then suddenly showing up out of nowhere, I shouldn't want anything to do with him.
It doesn’t matter how beautiful he still is. Or how close we once were. It shouldn’t matter that my entire body lights on fire with need whenever he gets close.
He chose the worst possible time to leave without so much as a goodbye.
However, just like the first day he walked into our home, I'm drawn to him, needing him near me just as badly as I need air to breathe, and I can't stand it.
I want to hate him. I know I should hate him. But hating him is the last thing he'll let me do.
I push, he pulls harder, until I'm completely wrapped up in him, my mind lost in the one person who is forbidden—the one person I’ve always loved, even when he belonged to someone else.
Easton was never meant to be mine. It took me years to come to terms with that and now that I finally have, he's here, right in front of me, more irresistible than ever.
The part I fear the most about that—he’s the one person capable of completely wrecking my world.
“I’m not leaving until you take all of your hate out on me. Let me feel it. All of it. Every dirty look. Every nasty fucking word. I will have it all before I leave. Stop hiding from me.”
ALL THE ANGST STARS *****
WRECK MY WORLD is a fabulous read which contained everything I love in a romance, including a gripping plot with close childhood to adult friendships, a small town setting, a friends to lovers story and all the angst.
This book gripped me from the very beginning and I rode out the angsty waves with white knuckles. Victoria has a way of creating characters that you can’t help rooting for, even in their weak moments.
WRECK MY WORLD is a best friends to lovers story and a brothers best friend kind of romance but not as straight forward as it seems. The plot goes from past to present on occasion but does not spoil the flow of the story.
Easton and Dakota had been best friends for years, they are like two peas in a pod, Easton is a little bit older than her and is her brothers friend first but when Easton is of dating age and after a lot of persistence from Dakota's older sister he begins to date her, even though he is in love with her younger sister who wasn't old enough yet to date.
Dakota has always loved Easton and it wrecked her that he was dating her sister but she was still really close to him, even closer to him than her brother and her sister who was his girlfriend, but they always remained just as friends.
Easton is one of those guys who is a people pleaser, he started dating because her brother said it was OK so he went along with it, he took her to the school dance because it the right thing to do with your girlfriend but he also told her he was not touching her til marriage, good o'l Easton new she wasn't the girl for him even though people thought differently in their small town.
A tragic accident takes Dakota's sister away and she also loses her best friend when Easton leaves town suddenly too, following the funeral.
3 years after the death of Dakota's sister Easton returns to the small town, feelings haven't changed and he is determined to get his soul mate back, only she hates him for leaving suddenly during her time of grief and then causing her even more pain by leaving without a word.
Dakota is angry and hurt and even though her friends have welcomed him with open arms he has a lot of Dakota's barriers to knock down.
How can Easton make his move when Dakota is still known as her dead girlfriends younger sister? that's another obstacle he needs to get over. Small town, lots of judgmental gossip, there's a heck of a lot of push and pull in this story.
I loved it, loved the characters, loved the hea and the happy sigh I had at the end is always worth any angst along the way.
Told in first person dual pov.
Arc received for review purposes.
“I knew this was a bad idea. I should’ve pushed you away when I had the chance. I wasn’t thinking clearly. I’m still not.”
“Too late now,” he points out, standing and running his hand through his sweaty hair. “You didn’t.”
I can’t breathe, panic consuming me, because he’s right. I didn’t push him away, and now things will forever be different between us. #friendstolovers#brothersbestfriend #secondchanceromance
