Review: Wreck You by Abby McCarthy

Title: Wreck You
By: Abby McCarthy
My Copy: Ebook for Honest Review
BookWhisperer Rating:

“My name is Maura McCafferty. I take men who love me and I destroy them. If there was a scarlet letter I could wear to keep the men at bay, it would be a W. I would wear it proudly, to let them know I am a wrecker. If you love me, I will wreck you.”

Raised within the Devil’s Crusader’s, Maura has been exposed to many of life’s uglies and sheltered from any real relationships. She has all but given up on the idea of love.

Until she meets Corbin Marx, a sexy beast of a Marine who refuses to back down from any challenge. He is the type of man Maura has craved, the type who might just be strong enough…

This journey will be brutal, littered with violence, deceit and heartache. Maura must learn to navigate through the bumpy roads that life has paved and hope that at the end she will find her happiness.

Oh how I wanted to absolutely love you..... I am a major mc and marine fan. Anything that includes one of not both is sure to be a winner. Although, this didn't quite make it to spectacular. The instant love between the two characters is just such a major turn off. The number one cardinal rule for me is do not under any circumstance make character immediately fall head over heels in a romance. This makes everything in the story to follow cheap and unnatural leading readers to question motive and validity. Everything about Wreck You oozed with potential, but with such a drastic faux pas in the first chapter I was ruined for the remainder.
