As my first book from Shiloh Walker I didn't really know what to expect. I wasn't sure if it would be really hot or really sweet or somewhere in between. It was both and I loved it. I loved the hot, hot scenes that were wonderfully done. I loved the sweet, romantic scenes that made me melt. The writing was easy to follow and the characters were well developed and made you feel their emotions as if you were in the story. Zach and Abby have been friends forever. They have always been there for one another through ups and downs. There are no judgments between them. Just pure, loving friendship. We get to see what happens when they take things a little further than friendship in this story.

When I picked up Wrecked, I was trying to figure out how a whole book that people are raving over could be based on the friends to lovers plot without sounding like a lot of other friends to lovers stories out there. Well, it worked. It wasn't like other books with a similar plot. It was different. It was really, really good and I honestly could not put it down. I read it in about a day even though I did have to sneak peeks at my phone throughout the day while I was at work or waiting for an appointment to read a few pages here and there.

There are so many things I liked about this story but I don't want to spoil it for those yet to read it so I am trying to share enough but not too much in this review. I had some absolute favorite parts that have affected my personal life. There were times I was reading this book when I laughed, cried, and yelled in my head at the characters. The intimate scenes were very well written for the characters and the story. They were hot and romantic and I think they truly spoke to the love and respect that Zach and Abby had for one another. I am picky about the love scenes I read - I don't like too many in a contemporary romance and I like them to have meaning, and these were good.

The secondary characters were enjoyable to read about as well. I loved Marin's friendship with Zach and Abby and her ability to tell them both the truth no matter what they wanted to hear. I really liked Zach's brother Zane's role in the story. He was put in a tough position with Abby and it turned out so good. I really hope that there will be more books with these characters because I am not ready to let them go. Bottom line - if you are looking for a contemporary romance that is both sweet and hot at the same time, I highly recommend you try Wrecked by Shiloh Walker. You will not regret it.

Poorly Developed Story

I really didn't like this story very much - I haven't even finished it yet because I became tired of the lack of character development and the over reliance upon sex to fill in the story gaps. I never really saw the connection between the main characters other than sex...
I really didn't like this story very much - I haven't even finished it yet because I became tired of the lack of character development and the over reliance upon sex to fill in the story gaps. I never really saw the connection between the main characters other than sex. The book talked about how they were best friends and Zach loved Abigale so much, yet the only aspect oft he relationship that was explored was the sexual connection. It was hard for me to relate to the characters when I couldn't see why Zach loved her so much. Abigale's character came across as weak to me. I thought the story would examine her growth as an individual, but really the only thing I learned about was her constant desire to have sex with Zach and get a tattoo. I also felt the repeated use of offensive language was unneeded and added absolutely nothing to the storyline.

    Good book.

    Good book. It moved along a little to slow for my taste.

    Insipid

    My fourth book by this author; my least favorite. Two shallow characters that have spent 17 unable to communicate, spend another 200 pages not communicating. Does this really happen? The supporting characters were soooo much more interesting that the RLs! Well written, not a waste of my time, but not my favorite.
