Wreck You (Trade Me) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Wreck You by Randi Perrin is a story about miscommunication, poor judgment, fear of rejection, alcoholism and bad influence. It is also a story of acceptance, redemption, recovery and love. This 132 page story is mainly about Mechanic Mike and Parts Store Driver Blake and the crush they have on each other that neither will move forward with. Everyone around them knows that they like each other – yet they don’t know that the other feels the same and each is afraid to be rejected. The main portion of the story takes place at the garage Mike works at which is called Hard and Fast. What I liked about this story is that homosexual relationships are so normal and not looked at any different than a heterosexual relationship. It didn’t’ matter if it was M/M, F/F, M/F, each relationship was treated equally in every situation and by the supporting characters. I hope this is indicative our society today. There are several innuendos throughout about things being “hard and fast” and I thought was a fun way to tie the garage to the story; Almost like the garage was a character in the story. I thought the writing was clever and the main characters moved along at an appropriate pace for the conundrum they were in. I also liked how Mike’s friends acknowledged that he was a drunk and encouraged his sobriety. This is the first book I’ve read by Randi Perrin and it felt like this was a part of series. The main characters where well developed for THIS story but I felt like there was something deeper that I missed. The supporting characters, besides being “best friend” “best friend’s brother” “sleazy drunk/addict”, seem to have a whole backstory that I wished I knew more about. Perhaps they will be written about in the future. Overall, I enjoyed the story and would recommend it. This book has mature content, alcoholism and a brief drug use trigger.
