Given To Me For An Honest Review Charlene Zapata's book Sublime Wreckage isn't a must read at all.  It's a HAVE TO READ!!!!  This book is one that will grab you from the  beginning and hold on to you until the end.  Your pages will turn and turn and turn some more. The main characters are Maggie and Vincent.  They both have had similar experiences in their pasts.  When the meet each other, they become friends before anything else  developed.  The story will take you through many emotions and torment.  Before you know it you will also be drawn into the story too.  This story is written as though it is a true story.  It is a fantastic emotional story.  Will Maggie let Vincent into her past?  Will they make it  through all of her drama?  You then get to the end of the book .........CLIFFHANGER.  But never fear I am sure a sequel is in the making.   At least I hope so because I want to find out more about Maggie and Vincent's story.  I gave this book 5 starts but it truly deserves at least  10+.  I highly recommend this to everyone. Charlene might be a new author but she writes with so much experience.  I look forward to more from Charlene Zapata.

I stick to romance novels. I have my authors that I dont even have to read the excerpt of the book I just buy it because of who erote it. Charlenes book came to my attention after her post of facebook. I didnt read the excerpt just decided to enter a contest and help sell her book at the same time. I started her book and was amazed by the way she pulls you in with every character she writes about. The honesty of a life not many people see was amazing. The reality of the characters of how people respond was right on target. When finishing the book I was mad the next book wasnt out! I have to read that book, you have the sence of I need to know when it come to the next book. This is not the average book of boy meets girl, drama then happily ever after. This books is more, its powerful in its messages. Worth the buy?

 Not Another Damn Book Blog--Blog on Facebook  had the honor of making Charlene Zapata our debut review.   I'm going to be be honest here, I was nervous.   Not for doing reviews, as I've done quite a few of those before even attempting a blog.   No I was nervous because this is NOT my normal type of book.    So how was my review going to be?   She's a first time author, I wouldn't wish to say anything to hurt her.  At the same time I promised that as a person who runs a blog, I couldn't lie to those that depend on our Blog to steer them the right way.            I shouldn't have worried.                            Sublime Wreckage Is a story of life, love, loss, life, anger and pain.  Charlene Zapata pens a tale that sucks you in and makes it hurt to breathe at times.                    Synopsis:    Maggie, the heroine, was Daddy's little girl and like Daddy's little girl's are apt to do, she worshiped and adored everything about him.  When she loses him in a car crash as a small child, her life is forever altered and that is where the story truly begins.  Maggie struggles daily with life, with memories, with an abusive mother.  She may only be a senior in high school but life has made her older, braver and stronger.   Vincent  Moreno is perfection on a stick.  The Alpha bad boy that everyone warns a girl from, but you just can't stay away.   Their story is engrossing, frustrating, loving, tender, real and most of all entertaining.               Review   The Good   The minute Vincent was introduced to me, this story took off.  I immediately wanted more. This story is told from dual points of view and as a reader I tend to enjoy that.  It gives me a chance to see what both characters are feeling and I get a complete story.   In Maggie's eyes Vincent is the hot high school drop out that she shouldn't want, but like every girl--does.   It's a story of their friendship that developed deeper as the story went along.    It's good from Maggie's POV, but when you get the same scenes from Vincent's you melt for him and you fall in love just a little deeper.                      Charlene Zapata has a knack for giving us characters that are real, completely believable and beautifully flawed.   This talent of hers kept me from screaming at our heroine and instead understanding her--even getting to the point of admiring her.   The author also gives us secondary characters which enhance the story and leave us intrigued.  They add to the main story without detracting.    There was so much to love about this book and even though it wasn't my normal read?  I did love the story,  very much.     The Bad   There's not much to put here...  I had a little trouble at the beginning dealing with the struggle that Maggie had over her dad.  That's a personal thing, it was entirely believable but I found myself wanting to get to what I knew was the real story a little too much.  I loved the dual POV's, but right when we are first given Vincent's view it was a little tedious.  It flowed well for me after that.   I am a girl who loves her happy endings.   That doesn't mean I don't read cliffhangers, I do but I just need to be warned and in the right    frame of mind.  That said bring on book two I'm ready. In closing,  this book may be a debut by Charlene Zapata, but she comes off as a seasoned writer.    Rating 4 stars

Truly enjoyed this book; could not put it down and as a result read it in one session and looking forward to the next. It's got trauma, heartbreak, recovery with drama, a bit of romance - some of the complicated misunderstanding/resistance that romance often has in such stories but this one is NOT done like all the others. While being an amazing and entertaining read, it was also inspirational. Maggie has a tough home life but she just refuses to let it get her down, refuses to take a victim role and finds positivity in everything. Needs a little bit of editing help but, truly just a little. Well written and left me wanting more.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Not all of us get the ideal childhood. Some of us grow up in an environment where not only do we not feel loved but are told so many times how worthless we are that it takes everything in us to just get up every day and survive. Maggie lost her father at an early age and her mother well let’s just say she is not going to be winning any awards anytime soon. Maggie just wants to get through high school and move out of her town and get a college education. Then she meets Vincent. Vincent brings Maggie peace that she has not known for a very long time. What Vincent and Maggie have is a once in a lifetime kind of love that should be nurtured and cherished. Maggie has finally graduated high school and is looking forward to a future. This is a wonderful tale of perseverance and the strength of the human spirit to make it through anything. I cannot wait for the second part of this series to see what happens next.

This book takes you on an amazing journey that proves you can overcome anything if you put your mind to it. You can keep your faith. You can keep your sanity. You can choose to find the positives in a world of negatives. I truly enjoyed this story and look forward to the next installment.

Book Worms gave this book 4.5 stars and was reviewed by Book Worms Reviewer Leigh, thank you Leigh  Sublime Wreckage book review   Maggie is just trying to make it through her senior year so that she can get as far away from where she lives and her mom. Her father died in a car crash, that she was in as well, when she was a little girl. Her life with her mom has been hell since.    Vincent Moreno keeps seeing Maggie places. He first sees her running, and then places like his brother's high school and the grocery store. He's intrigued by her and wants to get to know her. Maggie isn't interested in a relationship. Her last one didn't end well, and she doesn't want to get close to anyone again. She's happy just having her best friend Amanda and a few other friends from school. Vince is determined to get closer to her and he's eventually successful.    Will Maggie let Vincent into her past so they came have a future? Will they make it through all the drama that still surrounds her life? I give this book 4.5 stars out of 5 stars   First let me say that you WILL be reading another book to continue this story. I can't wait for it to come out, because this book has all my interest. It's a well written book with a story that keeps you consumed page by page.    The characters are unique from any other book I have read. Although Maggie seems to be a push over when it comes to her mother, I know that those kind of reactions are real. At first I didn't like Maggie because she seemed weak. As the book progressed I empathized with her. This was her mother that mistreated her so badly. How can you not love your mother? She wanted to be loyal to her and not add any stress to her mother's life. It just seemed so unfair to poor Maggie.   I liked Vincent from the beginning when he is introduced in the story through Maggie's point of view. He seemed like a hot bad ass that you would love to be close to. Then you read the same story but from Vincent's point of view. It was crazy how the same scenes were so different from different perspectives. I just wanted to reach into the book and give Vince a hug. Well.  That is until I got to the last few pages of the book where I wanted to slap him AND Maggie. UGH!!! I really cannot wait for the second book! I've got to know what's going to happen!   So, if you want a great book that will keep you turning the pages no matter what time it is or no matter what you are supposed to be doing, this is it! Just be prepared to wait for the second book.

"You can't change the past so i focus on my future." Sublime Wreckage was a beautiful and heartbreaking read. The feelings in this book are so ugly and raw then so intimate and beautiful. It made you laugh, cry, cringe, smile, and see red with anger.  Maggie Wilson is not your typical teenager, she has been though and seen way to much at such a young age, yet her passion for life is still so strong. Charlene Zapata as a new author did an extraordinary job writing this character. Though there were times i wanted to shake some sense into her! Unconditional love really is a tricky thing.  Vincent Moreno is the perfect guy (except he can't cook) I did love that he had a flaw! One of my favorite things about this book was the relationship between Maggie and Vince or should i say lack there of in the physical sense. I love that they were friends first. Real bonding friends, they didn't just jump into a relationship with each other. It made the story that much more beautiful. It made the love they share that much more believable.  Amanda, Maggie's best friend was a fun secondary character. We didn't get to much of her or to little it was just the right dose. The struggles they face particularly Maggie with balancing Amanda and Vince was very true to life and unlike many other NA books where the best friend seems to just accept being pushed to the side.  I loved this story and really can't wait to see where these characters go and how they mature. There was a scene at the end of the book that i am sure i am in the minority by saying i am glad it happened. Throughout this book Zapata stayed so true to life that i am very happy she stayed true to that and made the writing choice that she did.
