Getting married at eighteen wasn't the smartest idea but ... I'd been in love. Bryce, with his perfect words, his money, and all-American good looks. He had pulled me in, and when he spit me out, I'd barely been left alive.

Now at twenty two and divorced, I just wanted to build a life for myself on my own terms. Free of fear.

First job. First crappy apartment. First taste

This was promising. A crazy ex vs an MC alpha hero. Instead I read about an MC wannabe that has no clout, a lying heroine and proud of it and the dumbest get together I've ever come across. He was in love with her but takes another woman home just after a few weeks and the heroine chasses him down to declare her love? Arrrg why do authors think its cool for the heroine to do the groveling?
Authors should only write MC/Mafia romance if they actually know how to do it i

Cute romance/stalker story. A bit predictable, but likable characters with good chemistry. I ate it up in a few hours. Where can I find me an Ethan King?

This book is not your normal Leia Stone book, but I am so glad that she wrote it. It's about Hailey a young woman who thought she had everything she ever wanted in life. A husband and everything that money could buy, and without giving away too many spoilers Hailey finds out that she's made a mistake. Enter Hailey 2.0. She moves back to her hometown to start over. Enter Ethan the best book boyfriend I think I have ever read.... he's just so amazing and sweet and hot.

I truly wanted to love this book, but in the end there were just too many things that annoyed me. First, in my opinion this isn’t a dark romance and shouldn’t be advertised as one. Second, a woman who lived in her words in the ghetto and survived not only living with a drug using parent, but an abusive spouse would be a bit more survival savvy than Hailey was presented here. That being said some of her behaviors/choices/thought processes don’t make sense. Finally, while I struggled

Oh em gee. It's been a while since a book's given me a book hangover but I sure do have one now. I wanted a quick, steamy read, but found myself drawing this out and savoring each chapter. It was much more of an emotional rollercoaster than I expected, but I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. There are really only a few steamy scenes but it has just he right amount for the situation. I was prepared for more of a romance book, but it's a much more emotional story of recovery. The characters are easily ...more

I’m familiar with Leia Stone’s work in paranormal romance and I had high expectation for this contemporary romance—it didn’t disappoint. This book has it all, action, romance, suspense, a villain you’ll love to hate (I honestly abhor the very name now) and a swoon-worthy hero who sweeps Hailey off her feet. She’s determined not to need a knight in shinning armour, which I appreciate. But Ethan comes through anyway. I wouldn’t call Wrecked a dark romance as such, although there’s mentions of sens ...more

Omg I actually enjoyed this book so much.


Hailey Willows just divorced her abusive husband at age twenty-two. Now she's living in a cheap motel, first job as a waitress, and just barely getting by whilst at the same time pursuing a medical career.
She moves to the apartment on top of the motorbike garage thing belonging to Ethan King. They met in high school but nothing really happened between them.
However, her ex-husband, Bryce, is a delusional psy
I added this to me “want to read” list somewhere along the way. I’m unsure if it was recommended to me or where I found it, but I’ll give it a go.

I didn’t love the writing style. I found the constant inner narrative to be a bit... annoying. But I settled into it after a while.

I did like the pace of the romance. It felt real.

All in all, this was an enjoyable enough read. Nothing overly unique or special, but it kept my interest.

I don’t know why I’m surprised

I am a fan of Leia Stone, I’ve read just about everything she’s published, including the bits she’s had included in anthologies (still hoping for a continuation of that Push story ;)) and I’m always struck by how she has the incredible talent to draw readers in with these stories of emotionally vulnerable women and just squander that opportunity to empower her female audience and just have her heroines just do nothing towards the end of the story.

This is something completely new from Leia Stone, and it. was. FANTASTIC. If you're a huge fan of her work (like me) you're used to fantasy worlds, magic, and a badass woman leading the pack. I've been on a paranormal romance kick so I wasn't sure if I would be in the mood for one without any magic. Also, I generally hate Motorcycle club-type books. BUT let me just say, this book did NOT disappoint and was pleasantly different. With this breath of fresh air, we have Hailey who is like a broken b ...more

This book was just amazing. So freaking good. Leia entraps you in an intense tale of survival and love. This book is going to put you through a roller coaster of emotions. Hailey is such a strong character, and her character growth was just awe inspiring. I just can’t say enough good things about this book. The story keeps you on your toes and there will plenty of times where you will ask you what in the world is going on?!?! But it’s well worth the ride. If you were unsure if you wanted

I must say that I really love the main character in this book. Hailey 2.0 is truly a inspiring woman. There is a *trigger warning* that comes with this book....Violence and abuse are present in this book. Without going into possible spoilers just know that Hailey is awesome. There is a swoon worthy hot guy in this book as well. He’s amazing and I loved him right away. I was hooked from the beginning of the book and I was unable to put the book down. It is that good. So intense. Gah! I loved it. ...more

I probably wouldn't have read this book if it hadn't been written by Leia Stone. This is not my usual genre, but I love Ms. Stone's work. I am glad I picked it up as I was completely engrossed by the story.

Ms. Stone always writes layered characters. Nothing is 1 dimensional. Hailey, the main character, is complex and damaged. She is struggling to rebuild her life after leaving an abusive relationship. The secondary characters are just as devoloped as the MC, which adds great depth to the story.

This was a great read! This was a dark romance without the main love interest being an asshole or a bully.

Cute Story

Overall this was a pretty cute story. I loved the fact that Hailey managed to get herself out of a bad relationship and a lot of her thoughts and emotions were fairly spot on. Ethan is adorable and I really loved Haileys friend Angela. Everything was well written and I don’t notice any typos or grammatical issues. So why not 5 stars? Well, there were a few inconsistencies throughout the story. One being how long Hailey and Bryce were together: 4, 6 or 7? They were married for 4 years a

Hailey stores up the courage to walk away from an abusive relationship with basically the clothes she is wearing and moves back to the neighborhood she grew up in with no family to support her. She then literally runs into Ethan Scrumptious King, a tattooed Adonis with the heart of a lion who teaches her what real love and being cherished feel like. Evil ex stalking ensues, keeping Hailey from fully being able to move on. Throughout the story Hailey 2.0 learns that she isn't completel

The tittle of this book says it all, this story wrecked me and I had tears in some parts....Leia Stone has once again got me to read and absolutely love a book I probably would not have read if it was not written by her! This book grabbed me kicking and screaming and had me completely invested from page one up until the very ending. Ethan is so different to who you think he is from the description...yes he has tattoos, rides a Harley and carries a gun, but he is so much more...kind, generous, ca ...more

Dark Romance at its best!

This story was very intense and completely captivating. It will break your heart and then fill you with powerful emotions of love and passion.

Hailey and Ethan are amazing characters. Hailey is broken emotionally. She has just escaped a very abusive marriage with barely the clothes on her back. She is determined to make it on her own and to be the strong woman she knows she can be. Ethan is everything she needs. He’s strong, powerful but not aggressive or pushy. He’s the

I'm trying to find the write words to describe this book…
Amazing, riveting, emotional, and everything you could ever want in a romance novel.
This book took me on a healing, emotional ride that I will live over and over again, as I read this book again and again. This isn’t a book you just read once. This isn’t a story that you want to put down. This is a story of a journey that leads up to such a powerful love story, only we could wish to experience one day.

Wrecked by Leia Stone is a dark romance with a lot of emotion, well developed characters and deep backstory. Plus it’s sexy as hell - who doesn’t love a bad boy biker.

The first paragraph captured me and drew me right into Hailey’s story, so much so I didn’t want to put it down.

I always have a slight hesitancy when reading a book that’s labeled dark and has a warning. However, the storyline was addictive to read and I couldn’t wait to see how Hailey’s story would pan out. If your after somethin

I really enjoyed this book. I was looking for a book that had a protective man to fall in love with and this book delivered. Both main characters were great. I admired Hailey for her bravery and determination to remake herself after her abusive ex. Ethan was delicious, reliable, compassionate, and protective all without being overbearing. I was invested in this relationship and loved every moment of this read. This was my first book from this author and I LOVE PNR so I’m looking forward to readi ...more

Great Story

I really enjoyed the storyline of this book; however I felt the first part of this book was very slow, which was fine but the last 30% of this I felt the story and relationship seemed rushed. I have to say I’m also a bit stunned on what her ex does at the end of the book. It just seemed to be something that he wouldn’t do and I didn’t think it fit with his personality. Overall it was a good book, and I would definitely recommend it.

This is not a dark read. It was sweet more than anything else simply because of Ethan’s heart of gold. I liked hailey, however for all her past life, she seemed a bit naive and frankly lacking survivor instincts. This story lacked some character development - especially when it came to Hailey. The ending was a surprise.

I liked this one. I will say that it didn't seem overly "dark" to me, so don't let that scare you off. This is one book that I think could have benefited from 3rd person POV instead of first. For example, it seemed out of character that he brought a girl back, and I wished that I knew more of what he was thinking instead of having to infer it. Overall it was an enjoyable story though. ...more
