I went into this book blind - I hadn't read the previous two books in the series, and I've never read anything by Ms. Gray - but, the synopsis grabbed my attention and I knew I wanted to read this book from that moment. And my instinct was right - I loved it!
Cole is dark and haunted by past demons - harder on himself than anyone else could be. I so wanted to be able to hug him - and so glad he was able to move past some of what he was holding back. Piper was the perfect balance to him - fun, light, slightly immature - but her transformation here was wonderful to watch.
The plotline was a little predictable, but interesting enough to keep me reading.
And after seeing the family and friend group dynamic that Ms. Gray has created, I definitely will be going back to read the first two books - and anything else she has to offer in the future!
Wrecked: 4.5/5 stars

CRASHED by Sherilee Gray Axle Alley Vipers, #1 Publication Date: July 2015 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Synopsis: She swore never to trust him again... Fiery mechanic Alexandra Franco should have known better. Years ago, her best friends' older brother took her virginity and broke her heart-or rather, doused it with gasoline, lit a match, and then walked away. And Alex definitely should not have indulged in another hot night with him after the fact. He's not the same boy she fell for, and she sure as hell doesn't want anything to do with the wealthy, ruthless man he's become. Walking away from Alex was the biggest mistake of Deacon West's life. She belongs with him, and if getting her back means playing dirty, so be it. If she'll grant him a three-month, no-strings affair, he won't sell the building Alex and his sisters use for their auto repair business. Hell, he'll even sign it over to them. But will Alex ever entrust her heart to him again, or are they destined to crash and burn?
REVVED by Sherilee Gray Axle Alley Vipers, #2 Publication Date: October 2015 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, RomanceSynopsis: He'll rev her up and drive her to the edge... Rusty West swore she was done with men. Instead, she channeled her passion into West Restoration, the car shop she runs with her sisters. But Rusty's aloof composure fades when the owner of the competition comes striding into her shop, over six feet of sexy, rough-edged confidence…hot enough to send Rusty's motor into overdrive. Reid Parker worked his ass off to get what he wants—and what he wants is West Restoration and its crew. He never expected to find a shop of all-female mechanics…or the stunning redhead who ignites a lust that threatens his cool. But Reid plays carefully. He never, ever gets involved with a woman beyond one night. And no matter how hot the sparks, Rusty will never compromise her business for a man…
