Miranda is a teenage girl who lives with her brother and grandmother on Whim Island, after the loss of both of her parents as a child. She is popular and well-liked, until she’s involved in a tragic boating accident. With the loss of several young lives in the accident, most of the town blames Miranda because she was steering at the time. They are all suspicious as to how she survived. I just found that part of the story a little ridiculous. Every adult on the Island is on the same page and blame the accident on her. No one has any sympathy for the poor girl, who has just lost friends too.

She survived the accident because she was actually saved by a merman named Christian. He was breaking rules by surfacing and he was so drawn to her that he couldn’t stop himself from saving her. And only her. I found Christian’s character to be very one dimensional. As much as I tried to like him, I just didn’t connect with him at all throughout the story. As he and Miranda got to know each other and I suppose fell in love, I felt no sparks through the storyline. There wasn’t a significant moment for me where the characters evolved and I desired to know more about them.

The one thing I did like about “Wrecked” was the cover. The photo of Miranda and Christian surrounded by silvery splashes of water and the bright blue title was what drew me into wanting to read it. It’s very eye-catching. I simply wish the characters were a little more developed and like able, so that I could give the story a higher rating. Unless you just have some time to kill and want something light to read, I wouldn’t recommend this book.

dluvsbooks Yes, that is the most amazing cover ever!!! But the story... not so much:( And trust me, with a cover like that, I really tried my hardest to like it but when my one hand is grabbing my chin and the other is holding the back of my head with such force my neck was going to snap making me face each page wasn't working out too well. So with a regretful sigh I stopped and it was the best feeling ever:) Happy reading.
