Wrecked is the third and final book in the Axle Alley Vipers series by Sherilee Gray. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by the author.

Wrecked Sherilee Gray:

This book focuses on the third of the three women who own and work at West Restoration. Piper West is the youngest of the three and because of this, constantly feels like everyone is over protective of her, especially her big brother Deke. Now that both Alex and Rusty have moved out, Piper is living alone in the cottage next

Cole is a dirty talker and I love it :-p Piper is a mechanic with something to prove and Cole a former cop who has felt much loss in his life. He's been in love with Piper for a long time but held back. After some reluctant sparks catch, they burn up together and it's pretty spectacular. Cute read with depth. And a whole lot of sexy.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

5 - "I'm not ready to lose this... not yet." Stars!

The Axle Alley Vipers series is definitely one I am glad that I stuck with. I won’t lie I wasn’t sure me and the authors writing were a fit after the first book. But I was wrong and each following book in the series has been better than its predecessor.

You are given a sense of the deep and underlying attraction between Cole and Piper in the previous book in this series, but Cole Black is a man with serious demons, and although the scars on his b

Piper is finally living on her own and she’s more than ready to prove to everyone that she’s perfectly capable of living on her own even if her overbearing brother appoints her long-time crush as her new babysitter and that she may have to keep a secret or two.

Cole owes Piper’s brother big time. After the accident that lost him job as a policeman and left him scarred, Deke was the one to give him a new direction so looking after his hot baby sister is the least he can do.

After an accident takes the life of his partner Cole Black is left with a serious case of survivor's guilt and riddled with insurmountable regret. Even though the accident wasn't his fault Cole still feels responsible, and is struggling to make peace with all of it. The accident not only stole the life of his friend, but it also left him with injuries that have taken him out of the line of duty.

A fantastic friends to lovers romance full to the brim with love, laughter, angst, pain, longing, and heartfelt emotions.

Cole has shut himself off to all those closest to him in the aftermath of a tragedy. Blaming himself for the death of his partner, he believes he deserves to suffer and disregards all the plans he had made for his future. His biggest goal had been to return to his hometown and win the hand of the girl he has always loved, but he accepts that that will never be, as he feels he

Wrecked was such a good read!

Loved Cole & Piper, both characters were entertaining, likable and very relatable.
It was heartbreaking watching Cole struggle with the emotional and body scars after the trauma he'd been through. He was convinced Piper deserved more than what he could offer. If only he could see the beautiful and loving man Piper and we could see... sigh

The final book in the Axel Alley Vipers series was a nice and easy read. Piper West has been in love with her brothers best friend, Cole Black, since forever. But ever since he returned home scarred and closed off she can't get through to him. Cole lost his partner in a high speed chase and was dealing with survivor guilt. He found himself to be unworthy of anything and everything, including love or a chance at Piper.

Didn’t like this as much as the first two. It got tedious for me waiting for them to get together. Cole isn’t as alpha as I hoped.. he was kinda dumb dumb not to notice that Piper was into him (and he’s supposed to be a former cop)

I need to start off by saying that this may possibly be my favorite book cover in the Axle Alley Vipers series. I've loved all three of them, but Wrecked by Sherilee Gray just makes me have the feels. This book was highly anticipated for me. It is one of those that you wait and wait for, just hoping you'll get the ARC. For me, thank goodness, that happened.

What did I love about this book? Oh, well, just everything! Let me start going down the list. Female mechanics. Yeah, girls proving they can

I just love picking up romance novels that have cops in them. They are usually written as being protective, loving, kind, fierce, and all of these are exactly how this author has portrayed the main character in this new release.

Oh my gosh! This story had me from the beginning. It was emotional and extremely moving. Cole is a damaged man but his love shines through for his sweet girl - the girl he's loved since he was 17. The thing is - he doesn't believe he's worthy of love.

Boy I love this series, the characters are amazingly flawed to the point of either wanting to knock their heads together or completely mother them.

Piper the youngest of the Axel Vipers is like a curvaceous, golden sunbeam bringing light into people's lives. Struggling with body image issues and the comparisons to the other vipers , Piper really doesn't see how beautiful she is inside and out.

This book truly tugged at my heart. Cole Black is a former cop who was injured on duty. This left him scarred and feeling overly self-conscious of himself. One the sexy bachelor that trolled the scene with women, living the life, he is rather reclusive now, having grown a full beard just to cover his facial scars. He has been in love forever with his best friend’s sister, Piper West, and had planned to act on these feelings…right b

No one likes a martyr.

Cole needed to as Deke put it "get over himself".
When a hero or heroine does the whole push and pull, I'm not good enough, you deserve better routine, it messes up the book for me. It takes away from what could be a beautiful solid relationship between the main characters.

Too much time was spent with Cole being pig headed. The relationship between them as adults was all sex. We didn't get to read about them on dates too much and even when it was put in there it was too shor

Cole is such an alpha, "then he growled. A deep sound that vibrated through his chest. “I’m not your effing brother.” I loved Piper she was loving and carefree and I loved her playfulness with Cole, "damn, the man got to her. Every. Time.

Rounding out the Axle Alley Vipers series, this third story, Wrecked, zeroes in on the youngest of the West siblings with Piper’s story. She’s starting to get annoyed with the overprotectiveness exhibited by her older sister Rusty and brother Deacon, to the point of feeling that they really don’t believe in her abilities as a mechanic, or that she can manage living on her own. It’s not helped by Deacon’s insistence on their childhood friend Cole, a scarred ex-cop who lost any semblance of his ea ...more

Wrecked is the third book in the Axel Alley Vipers series by Sherliee Gray. It can be read as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading Crashed(book one), and Revved(book two) to understand the characters that are in this novel. Piper along with her sister, Rusty, and best friend, Alex, own and operate a custom car renovation garage. Both Rusty and Alex have found their men, this story features Piper!

Piper has been in love with Cole since she was seventeen years old. But to her dismay her big brother's best friend only thought of him as an annoyance. After trying to get his attention for so long she finally gave up. It is clear that they will never be together. Especially now

Oh, I loved this one.

This is the third book in the series, and much like the previous ones, this was a great read.

This time we have Piper and Cole’s story. We saw then in the previous books, of course, and now we get their entire story.

So, they’ve both been attracted to each other for years, but for different miscommunications the other never knew… until now. The one who mostly fights the attraction is Cole, since he feels ‘less than’ in his eyes. Of course Piper doesn’t see him like that, and t

My best friends sister type romance with a thriller component. This romance was sweet, sad (at times), funny and steamy. Piper has a support system in her family and friends that is enviable. She is a strong female who can take care of herself, but is also unsure and uncertain about herself when it comes to certain topics. Cole is dealing with a tough situation and doesn't trust or believe in himself. This story throws them together and we get to experience the ups, downs, fun and not so fun of ...more

Cole, is a hottie but good Lord what a pain in the rear he was for Piper and between Cole and Piper's brother, the girl couldn't win. Cole couldn't get out of his own way with Piper. Poor guy.

A scared hero and a lovely heroine. Piper finally has the place to herself and now she can finally try to figure out what she wants. Her over protective siblings (especially her older brother) have different idea. Enter our hero who tries to keep his distance (while overcoming self doubt) but just can't. There is great chemistry between the lead characters and the author excellently crafts situations that keep the reader engaged. Bottom line this final installment of the Axle Alley Vipers is wel ...more

This review of Wrecked by Sherilee Gray will never be able to express how much I loved this book. Gray is a new to me author, so I have not read the first two books in the Axle Alley Vipers series. Characters from the first two books are included in Wrecked , therefore it might help to read them first so the characters aren’t strangers. However, Wrecked can be read as a standalone without any major confusion.
