Have you ever wanted to go back?
I’ve contemplated it everyday for the last six years.
Knowing once I did, I’d wreck everything all over again, but still—I dream.
Until last night.
My past came back to me.
As I finished my set, looking through the smoke and flashing lights, I see him. The wreckage still written on Chord’s face, tells me hell’s coming. I can’t erase the hurt

★ 3.5 - 4 stars!!! ★

“When I have no one or nothing, I turn to you and my heart is home.”


Finalmente fui capaz de ler um livro até o fim após 9 dias sem conseguir iniciar nenhuma leitura! Então, talvez seja culpa do meu mau humor por não ter “amado” essa leitura tanto quanto eu gostaria...

Tenho alguns sentimentos conflitantes em relação a WRECKING US SAVING YOU.
Nesse livro, conhecemos a história de Sarah & Chord, desde o momento em que se conheceram na infância. A partir daí acompanhamos

How am I supposed to explain this book? HOW? I’m still crying and I finished it an hour ago. How is this possible?

It’s possible, because Leaona Luxx has written one of the most heart wrenching, beautiful, out of this world books. I can’t explain how much I loved WUSY.

Chord from the very beginning had my heart. That guy loved with everything he had! And Sarah. I loved her. I related to her.

If you want a book that will make you cry. Make you weep. Make you want to smack the author. Make you ques

Why oh why can't there be ten stars? Wow, this book had me hooked and crying, in the very first chapter. Wrecking Us was my first book by Leaona and let me say, I FREAKING LOVE HER WORK!
The characters are so real you will feel all their pain and their happiness. This one has all the feels, be ready to UGLY CRY.

My favorite book of 2018 so far!

“When I have no one or nothing, I turn to you and my heart is home.”

I sit here, writing my review and I can’t stop crying. It has been said that magic doesn’t exist in our world, but I beg to differ. Magic exists in books. In the wonderful, unforgettable stories we read. We fall in love with words, characters, authors. They ignite our souls and evoke so many emotions. Some will leave a print on you. This book... it will wreck you and save you all at the same tim

I got this book as an ARC from the amazing Leaona Luxx.

Where do I even start!?....

I was so excited to read Chord's story.

About half way through the book, I have to say I hated Leaona and what she did to Chord and Sarah. I didn't want to read it anymore but I COULDN'T put it down. I was so emotionally invested in the characters and the amazing Silas. All I kept saying to myself was, "How could she be so cruel at such an amazing point in these people's lives?"

I was torn apart between hating Leaon

Thank you for breaking me, Leaona. I thought I was the one who broke people. I have nothing on you or this masterpiece you've written.
Only someone you love with all you have can wound so deep, cut to the very core. This story is broken. It's heart-wrenching pain. I'm not much of a crier, but Leaona managed to make me sob. She managed to rip my heart out of my chest and in the end, set it back where it belonged.
This book isn't an easy read, but gosh is it ever written in a way that consumes you,

*ARC Approved* 5 Star review
This book.. I honestly have no words right now. From start to finish I couldn't stop reading. I instantly fell in love with both main characters Sarah & Chord.
Their story is one that is a love of true soulmates, that doesn't come easy. I smiled, laughed, cried. Well more than ugly cried.
It's a beautiful written story that will pull all type of emotions from you.
This is definitely a must read!

This book was one of the best and yet hardest books I have read. Leaona is a new to me Author and I happy to say she has a new fan.
They started off as childhood friends, then they became high school sweet hearts. BUT fate took a huge step and broke their hearts. But that's not where their story ends. 6 very long years later Chord literally stumbles on Sarah again. Together they take one heck of a roller coaster ride. AND the ride was really hard. Do they have a happily

WOW! I am in love with this book.

My feelings were all over with this story. I haven't cried with a book in quite a while until I read this. I had to stop reading at one point because it reminded me of my life in certain ways. Yet another phenomenal book by Leaona. Chore and Sarah's relationship was beautiful especially with all they had endured throughout their lives. Chord's family reminds me so much of my own, with how loving they are with one another. I can't wait to see what's in store for u

I’m still trying to collect myself, and process this amazing story. Trying to rain in my emotions because, this was a ride I wasn’t quite prepared to go on. However, It was absolutely worth it! Every once in a while, you read a book that reaches so far into your soul, you have to take a timeout, to rain yourself in. You have to say to yourself....”THIS IS NOT REAL,” because that how invested you become!

Tissues please but lacking

So this was a serious tear jerker. But holy hell Sarah was quite a b!tch!! Chord was a total sap. I did not believe in the love but the codependence and the way they relied on each other was dispicable. I feel like this was the 7th book in a series with all the side characters, which was a handful to keep track of.

This is my first time reading a story written by this author and I was really impressed with the raw emotions that were flowing. This 4 star story really gutted me raw.

Sarah and Chord met in kindergarten and have been best friends since then. Sarah comes from a broken home. A mother who didn’t care for her. After being best friends for years they admit their feelings for each other and then they get separated unwillingly . Chord never stopped looking for her and then he finds her. They will go

This is hands down my favourite book by this author no question one thing I will advise is have tissues and your favourite comfort food to hand you will need them.

Sometimes you read a book and you have no words to describe how it made you feel and for me this is that book. Soulmates can be such a contrived phrase but this couple epitomises everything I think soulmates are.

The writing is sublime Leaona you knocked it out the park with this one. The love contained in these pages enveloped me in h

In true Leaona form, this gem had my emotions all over the map. The story of Chord and Sarah is deeply emotional - raw, real, and painful at times - beautiful, touching, and heartwarming at others.

They have years of beautiful friendship and love - when it is taken from them they are both destroyed - circumstances keep them apart - and then a chance encounter brings them together again. Can they pick up where they left off? Can the years of feelings and friendship help them move past it all?

I don't even know where to start, besides first saying that Leaona's writing has finally made me shed tears. With that being said, this book deserves more than 5 stars. This is a book that will take you from two kids, inseparable from the age of 5, and growing up together and falling deeply in love. But, then their worlds part, only to finally be put back together. Then the inevitable happens. And you need to know, can they make it through and survive this? Chord and Sarah's story is a page turn ...more

This book should only be read after the other books in the series.

This book is so amazing. It will completely break your heart and put it back together. If it doesn’t, you are probably not human. Leaona does horrible things to us with this story (😉) and it is all in the name of great storytelling. She is very willing to go places most writers will not and does outstanding work. This is why she has become one of my favorites. We have the characters we love from the other books as supporting char

This book is heart wrenching. I'm still trying to process my thoughts. If you want a good ugly cry book this is the one. I actually felt every emotion down to my soul.
This book is truly something that happens in real life. It will tear you apart bit she will put you back together.
Chord and Sarah were true soul mates from kindergarten. You'll watch their love grow before their torn apart.
Only true love can stand the test of time and heartache. These two have it in spades.

I have been waiting for days for what to say to come to me, I can't put into words what this book was to me. Leaona slayed me! I mentally cannot cry, but this book "Wrecked Me". I was laughing, bawling, and jumping for joy at the same time. Chord is amazing. If only everyone could love as deep as he does. Sarah has had a lot of things that shouldn't happen in a young girls life ever, and she's lived through them by the time she meets Chord in kindergarten.

Emotional, heart-wrenching story that isn't your typical fairy tale.

Full of amazing chracters (both new and returning from the Highway 17 books), heartache, laughter, tears, and an incredible storyline...this is Leaona Luxx's greatest book to date!!

Sarah and Chord were always polar opposites.

Chord was born and raised in a wealthy family surrounded by siblings and love...never wanted for anything...until Sarah stumbled into his life.

Sarah never had anything in life. A mother who only kept her aro

Wow!! This was a raw, beautiful, intense, heartbreaking, and emotional book! It was told in dual POV’s by the two main characters, Chord and Sarah. They had been best friends for forever when they realize in high school that they loved each other. Fast forward a few years, they were separated unwillingly. Fast forward a few more years and they unexpectedly find each other again. Just when things seem to be going good, a heartbreaking tragedy happens that almost breaks them apart again.

This book was one of the best books I have read this year! This is Chord and Sarah’s book. Chord has a big loving family. Sarah only has a mother that doesn’t care about her. This story is a page turner. What happens when you lose the love of your life? Do you get a second chance? This book was so amazing! It was about the love of family, close friends, love and loss. I received an advanced reader copy for an honest review.

I hate picking a favorite book, I totally do. I usually try to categorize my favorite titles. Let’s face it… when you read a book, your mindset at the time goes a long way into how you are going to rate a book. Factors in your life or if your children are driving you batty, etc. So, I make a point of doing things to decompress before I read books that I know are going to lead me to fee
