About this ebook

 For savvy programmer Gabrielle Alvarez, moving to Portland, Oregon means a fresh start with a blank screen. She wants nothing more than to erase the last traces of her old life, starting with an exotic tattoo to hide an old scar. Gabby’s instantly drawn to the enigmatic artist, who also happens to be her neighbor. Lucky she has no plans to date-especially sexy, brooding men.

Last year, Bowen Landry was the king of broken promises. He made hundreds to his sister to get clean and hundreds more to his band and his boss. But Bowen’s sober now and determined to stay that way. The last thing he needs are complications, especially Gabby with her curves, dry humor, and independent spirit. Gabby spells danger to Bowen’s peace of mind, not to mention his personal promise to stay celibate for one year. 

Bowen is content keeping a firewall up between them until a stalker threatens Gabby’s safety. Alone in a new city, she has no choice but to turn to Bowen for help, moving into his apartment after hers is vandalized. While the two grow closer, Bowen can’t make any promises, and Gabby’s not asking. While the inexperienced Gabby can’t deny the charming, reformed bad boy, she’s unsure she can ever trust an addict again. If Bowen can help Gabby forgive her past and his, he may learn to believe in love again.

The first thing about this book I have to say that grabbed my attention was the cover. OH MY STARS. This cover I would frame and but Up on my wall as Art. It drew me in and had me wanting to read the book. And yes, the inside of the book DID for once agree with the cover of the book. What a wonderful and Beautiful Wreck this book is. Gabby and Bowen are each in their own rights messed up and wrecks for different reasons. Fate brings them together both in physical location as well within a group of friends. Gabby is a loner, even while in a group of friends and Bowen is just getting back into his group of friends and work family after being in rehab when they are forced somewhat into a "relationship". Not really 'forced' but fate moves them together or rather SHOVES them together. Life does work in mysterious ways. This book is well written and gritty at the same time. It has a dark side it it that touches on issues that are sadly a part of everyday life in the foster care system. I love the strength of Gabby even when she is with Bowen. Author Kasey Lane knows how to pen a wonderful well written story that grabs you and keeps you turning the pages until you hit the last one.

Fantastic read! What awesome characters this author crafted in Gabrielle and Bowen. Both are slightly broken. Bowen by his own doing, Gabby at the hands of another. Neither is at a place in their lives where a relationship makes sense but once they add benefits to their friendship they both soon discover that keeping their hearts out of it may be harder than they thought. Especially when it appears that Gabby could be in danger. The journey these two go on to get to their HEA is a wonderful emotional story. I highly recommend that you grab a copy of this one and enjoy the ride.
