4 Stars

This book is about anxiety, healing and just knowing that life is fucked up at times and instead of trying to be in denial about it you should try your best to live your life the fullest. You know when you are reading a book and you just know these two characters are meant to be? That was the case with Elena and Jax. They were basically MADE for each other, put on the book world to find the other so that they can help, guide and fall in love together.

Lauren Asher killed it with Wrecked. Best sports romance book that I have read. I haven’t been in a pit in 28 years, and honestly, I felt I was in one right back there and could smell the fumes, rubber, and overall feeling of adrenaline on the track. How talented of a writer to put me right back there with an excellent, emotional, witty, and gut-wrenching story. If I could give more then five stars on that alone, I would. Absolutely loved it.

I'm already a fan of this author and this series but Wrecked just made me fall even deeper in love. This story brought all the emotions and had me captivated from the start. I also really liked that the emotions were mainly surrounding Jax and not Elena. I feel like a lot of times we get these kinds of feelings from the heroine and not the hero and while I do love that, I think it makes it even better sometimes when it's the hero that's the one struggling and needin

Oh goodness, I wasn't ready for Jax's book to be so emotional. He surprised me so much. Lauren really went there and wrote a super emotional and amazing story. She had me crying at the prologue and then tearing up so many times. My heart hurt so much for what Elena went through and for everything Jax was being put through too.

These two really touched me and their story was fantastic! You will love Jax even more than before once you get to see him and what he's been hiding fro

Jax broke my heart multiple times throughout his story, but it wasn’t always avoidable. You can tell how much research Lauren has put into writing something so relatable with illness and mental health that you can’t help but feel everything the characters feel. You experience that pain with them. You don’t want them to suffer, you want to take their pain away. But like in real life, nothing is ever smooth sailing and I think Lauren did a fantastic job of staying true to real life situations and ...more

Oh my god. Is it really possible to be obsessed SO MUCH with a book series? Well probably yes. Because Lauren makes me more and more attached to this world and I’m sad just thinking about that the next book will be our final.

Wrecked is so far my favourite from Dirty Air simply because I felt the most attached not only to the characters but the story itself. It was written so beautifully and I took my time reading it as I wanted to enjoy it as much as possible.

I knew Jax would be my favorite. The party boy Brit intrigued me from book one and Lauren Asher did not disappoint with his character. I knew I was going to love Jax, and I was totally right. I adore him. But surprisingly, I think I adore Elena even more. That girl is strong and feisty, and the way she tackles Jax’s struggles made them the absolute perfect pair.

Lauren Asher also knows how to give her characters unique experiences and shape them accordingly, which I really appreciate. They’re re

I was privileged to Beta our resident F1 Bad Boy.

Let me tell you. It is a journey you do NOT want to miss.

It is full of angst, enemies to lovers style, more to the bad boy, sexual tension, a lot of emotions, tears, laughter, swoons, awwws, fanning yourself, more tears, and lots of grins.

Each time I read about F1, I swear that man is my favorite, yet Lauren blows my mind and makes me fall in love with a whole new man and his leading lady. I can not wait to see what she

Why is this so heavy, deep, and emotional?

The title seems really fitting. Not just how Jax feels, but also to what this book made me feel. At first, the banter and verbal jabs between Jax and Elena were witty, fun, and light. But after discovering what Jax had kept secret, the mood just turns somber and heavy. Suddenly you're a wrecked reading their story and you can never catch a break. Both of them are broken from the cards they're dealt with in life. But when they're together, they found them

The title for this book is fitting. This book WRECKED me in the best possible way. It was humorous. It was beautiful. It was sexy. It was electrifying. It was heartbreaking. I couldn't stop reading.

Jax, Britain's sexy bad boy F1 racer, does not do relationships or commitment of any kind. He does not allow many people to get close to him and likes to keep his life private. He has many demons that he is battling but lately he can't push them back and makes poor choices. One of those poor decision

If you love hot racers who love to dirty talk and come from all over the world THIS IS YOUR SERIES.
This racer boy happens to be British. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 We love hero’s with accents and that are undercover softies.

Elena is one bad chick. She’s freakin awesome and tough. Her beginning is so freakin sad, broke my heart. Her will to be better and prove that woman can work in her field in the racing world.

Jax has my heart. His pain makes me soft for him. It’s so sad to see him lost and hide his feel

Be still my heart, Jax Kingston. Wrecked literally wrecked me. It broke my heart, it mended it. It took me on a roller coaster of a ride. It made me laugh, it made me smile, it made me angry, it made me cry. If there is only one more book you read this year or any year, it should be this one.

Jax is a F1 racer, he has a great career, a great team he works for, loving parents, but he also is suffering. There is so much about himself that he keeps away from the public eye, his team and his own fri

I am SO proud of Lauren and what she accomplished with this book! I know Jax’s story wasn’t an easy one to write but she wrote the hell out of it.

I want to start off by being upfront about the fact that I wasn’t a huge fan of Jax going into this book. He really won me over. He is the bad boy of your dreams! A must read for anyone who likes their hero a little damaged. Elena is a QUEEN and was equally as amazing as Jax. This couple deserves all the love! Opposites attract and work so well in Wrec

Wrecked is a book that has the words pulling you so into the world of the characters that the atmosphere, the smell, the heat of the track all permeate each and every one of your senses. Jax and Elena's story was highly emotional, it was witty and at times heart wrenching. Lauren Asher took us to the heart of Jax, giving us more than what we expected along with the understanding. Elena is a character who you appreciate her strength, the way she deals with her demons and what life throws at her a ...more

I always knew Jax's story would be amazing but Lauren totally blew me away with this one.
I was hooked from page one and I could not put it down.
I wanted to smack Jax around the head at one point but deep down, he thought it was doing the right thing but once his brain kicked into gear, he made me love and forgive him for his brain fart moment.

Check this Formula 1 bad boy. He’s on fire.

Lauren Asher started this one with a bang and my adrenaline was high from then on in. When I lucked across her previous release in this Dirty Air series, I’d found my new Rocker addiction equivalent – F1 Racing drivers, and this time it was Jax Kingston and Elena Gonzalez’ turn to battle it out. But she was no pushover. We’ve met them before, but each book in this ‘Dirty Air’ series is a stand-a-lone, so you’re not missing out on anything but some fabul

Ok, I need to start this review by saying I DID NOT WANT THIS TO END!! God, this book was everything and I seriously want more! Jax has been a staple since the beginning of this series and to be honest, he was the one I was most intrigued about. His elusive, bad boy player ways had my curiosity burning and the anticipation only grew throughout the series. Sorry to say, move over Liam and Noah, because Jax has quickly moved up the ranks and has officially become my favourite.

Wrecked is a fast-paced enemies to lovers romance filled with the electricity of Formula 1 racing and the beauty of a love story between two people who both have demons to face.

Jax and Elena are forced to work together and spend pretty much every moment together as their tour the world on the F1 circuit where Jax is a champion driver. Elena is there to keep him on the straight and narrow, something that Jax is not happy about. He tries to keep her at arms length but it’s hard to resist the chem

Wow. Lauren Asher has quite literally wrecked me with Jax and Elena’s story. It’s so difficult to sum into words the emotions Wrecked has given me, it was so beautifully broken, full of heartache and pain, but also hope and love.

Jax is the bad boy Brit of the F1 circuit, with a reputation for being a party boy, a womaniser and constantly in the press for all the wrong reasons. When his F1 team McCoy hire PR expert Elena to help clean up his image and keep him in line, neither one of them predic

A gut-wrenching, heart-breaking love story that will mark you forever.

‘Wrecked’ by Lauren Asher is the third book in the ‘Dirty Air’ series that follows a handful of cocky F1 drivers and their feisty matches.

This book was nothing like I expected it to be, nothing like I could’ve imagined and more of what I could’ve hoped for.
This dark, raw and real masterpiece broke me piece by piece with every chapter and rendered me speechless with its incredible ability to make me feel such strong e

* I was lucky enough to BETA read Jax & Elena’s story; this is my honest review*

With every book Lauren puts out, I become more and more invested in her stories. Her writing has the power to have me crying one minute and laughing my butt off the next. I don’t know how she does it but she is TALENTED!

This story has a special place in my heart. Mental health is a big part of Jax and Elena’s story and I’m so glad it was talked about. I feel like, often times, men’s emotions are forgotten or pus

Kissing her tasted like the sweetest kind of destruction.


I really wanted to this series for a while but I read in Noah’s book that he hooked up with someone else right after they broke up and it’s a big no for me. Then I keep seeing Wrecked everywhere and read only good reviews about it (I even asked spoilers) before I decided to deep into it.

It started with a 4 stars because the heroine, Elena, was such a badass and strong and I immediately liked her. She went through some traumatized stuf

The blurb did give me some details to expect yet, I still went in feeling like I was going in blind which is so fun! I remember Jax from previous book especially Collided which was Liam's book. We see him here and there but we really don't see him as a person but, a wild child.

Therefore, when diving into this and getting to know Jax was so heartbreaking because be was struggling so much on a personal level. And no one would

Elena is struggling to make ends meet and with her grandmother needing to get into a good nursing home for her alzheimers she needs a miracle. Just when she doesn't think she can handle any more the job of a lifetime falls into her lap.
