Restore Me (Wrecked Series #2) by J.L.Mac

Navigating the world alone is all Josephine Geroux has ever known. Life altering tragedy struck early on for her. She endured an admirable struggle through her youth and learned the hard way how to adapt and survive. She managed to arrive at adulthood in one piece in spite of it all.

After such chaos, maintaining a life free of complications is a priority for her.
Everything changed when a man with amber eyes came through her door and claimed her heart. She fell hard in more ways than one. The pull between Jo and Damon seemed like fate bringing things full circle.

With another devastating loss looming, Jo fights to hold on to the very thing that brought her to her knees. She finds herself torn between a promising future and clinging to a devastating past.
But that’s not the most worrisome problem on her hands.

She must convince more than just herself to let the past stay in the past, where it belongs, but on her journey to find closure and resolution, she does the exact opposite. An old wound caused by a heinous act becomes exposed for what it is. The truth is catastrophic and Jo is helpless, watching as the ruins of her fragile world endure more turmoil.

Can something conceived from tragedy and malice end well? Can something so completely poisoned conquer adversity? Jo is left to make a decision; accept the circumstances she finds herself in or fight with unwavering ferocity to restore what has been damaged.
*Restore Me is the second book in the Wrecked series*

Two warnings 1. If you haven't read Wreck me do it NOW! 2. Grab the whole damn tissue box maybe 3 you will need them! Now with that said......

My review: 5 stars
I was lucky enough to be one of the chosen to receive an ARC of this book. First if you haven't read the first book in the Wrecked Series, Wreck Me(my review of it is here) then do it NOW! If you have read it then you know it was a cliffhanger with the "OH MY GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME J.L. MAC" ending and we were all waiting to find out what happened to Damon. Did he die? Did he live? Will Jo survive this? I mean the girl has had nothing but bad in her life it seems and how much can one person take? Now with out giving away anything with even the slightest of spoilers,OH MY GOD! I was in tears for the first 2 chapters. Heart ripped out, could not breath, blubbering mess for those 2 chapters and I just wanted to jump in the book and hug Jo. Then there was a "WHAT THE HECK" moment with Gran and I was yelling at J.L. Mac (even though she couldn't hear me) wanting to know why she was so mean letting Jo (and me) suffer and then the "OH THANK GOD" moment and then more "what the heck" and will the suffering ever end and then....well go read it and find out. It is AMAZING and WONDERFUL and I want more!  It was an emotional roller coaster with crying, cheering, and even laughing with Gran. You got to love an old woman who will tell ya like it is. You cheer Jo on and tell her not to give up but at the same time you want to tell her you wouldn't blame her if she did. Can't wait for the next book in the series that is titled Accept Me. As always, J.L.Mac has done it again and did not disappoint and the wait for this book was SO WORTH IT! There is no doubt that this will be on the best seller list.
