Author: Shana Vanterpool
Genre: Upper YA
Release Date: August 2, 2018
Welcome to Charming High.
Sorry, we’re fresh out of charm …
I am a star.
I’m not famous, before you make that mistake.
Although, I guess I kind of am. Or I will be anyway. My future was planned long before I was born.
The definition of a star is a fixed luminous point in the night sky that is an incandescent body like the sun.
I am a star. I am fixed. I am luminous only when no one is looking. I was stuck to repeat the same night every single day.
Until I met Wreck. And he showed me how alive I could feel within my cage.
I am a knight.
I’m not a knight in shining armor, before you start thinking I’ll save you.
I am a knight in raging darkness.
Until I met Hallie. And she showed me how to break free of my battle-torn armor.
Wrecked is the first book in the Charming Knights series by Shana Vanterpool. An exhilarating upper YA contemporary romance series set deep in the lives of Charming High’s most beloved football team. Where the limits of good and evil are pushed, desires and dreams are twisted, and readers are immersed into the lives of people who have it all. Except their freedom…
Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Wrecked is a different for me. The whole story was completely different, and that’s not a bad thing. These two people will shred your heart, gah the emotional and physical abuse Hallie and Wreck go through. Their entire lives. Will have you hurting so hard for them. Then you get a peek into their souls, theirs souls that a gilded cage hide. This world was intricate. These kids are pawns for their fathers, there is no love or warmth in their lives. Just manipulation, lies, and secrets. Hallie and Wreck carve a bit of happiness from each other, even if it is strained and a bit obsessive. I loved their interactions and I loved both of them.
It’s hard for me to leave a great detailed review for any book, because my go to is to accidentally spoil a book. I hate doing that. But this is one of those books that the reviews need to be a bit vague, because one small thread could unravel the entire story for someone. Shana Vanterpool weaved an exciting yet intricate world that leaves you questioning what you really know and wondering if love can truly survive in gilded cages. I’ve always loved Shana Vanterpool’s writing and Wrecked is different but still has her signature style. This will be one that you can’t put down!
