Release Blitz + ARC Review: ‘The Wreckage of Us’ by Brittainy C. Cherry

The Wreckage of Us, an all-new emotional and passionate standalone romance from Brittainy C. Cherry is available now!


Never in a million years did I think it would be Ian Parker who saved me…

I know I should stay away from Ian Parker.

But when my drug-dealing stepdad kicks me out, I have nowhere to go. Squatting in an abandoned shed on Ian’s grandpa’s farm seems like as good a plan as any.

Ian finds me there, of course, and he insists on me moving into his spare room. I should say no, but the appeal of a roof and a warm bed is too much. Not to mention Ian’s brown eyes and strong arms.

We’re nothing alike, but the spark between us is undeniable. My life is finally looking up.

Until I call the cops on my stepdad and unintentionally get my pregnant mom arrested.

Now I have to sacrifice my dreams to take care of my mom’s baby. She’s the only family I have left. Meanwhile, Ian’s band is taking off; his dreams are coming true.

Ian is my one chance at love. I just hope he doesn’t become the one chance that got away.

ARC provided by the the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

The Wreckage of Us has been such a delightful surprise. I’ve always heard amazing things about Brittainy C. Cherry but never had the chance to read any of her books. So yes, this was my first book from hers and now I can assure you this will not be my last. Thank you Montlake for giving me the opportunity to love this book and fall for Brittainy’s writing, it was such an amazing read. Angst, emotions, sexual tension and so much love. This is what The Wreckage of Us is all about.

So, this is Brittany Cherry’s new standalone romance and it tells the story of Hazel Stone and Ian Parker. Hazel is going through a lot, her mother is living with an abusive drug lord, and she is pregnant and addicted to the life Charlie is giving her. Enter Ian Parker. He is gorgeous, the grandson of the man who has given Hazel a new job and a rude young man, especially when it comes to her. But there is more to it and a beautiful connection starts growing. What will happen when Ian’s band (The Wreckage) takes off and he has to leave the ones he loves? What will happen with Hazel and her situation with her mother and Charlie? It’s not an easy ride but absolutely worth it.

Never in a million years had I thought it would be Ian Parker who saved me during some of the hardest days of my life.

What a nice surprise I had with this book! I mean, I am always a bit cautious when it comes to new-to-me authors and I wasn’t sure what I would get but I am so glad I decided to give The Wreckage of Us a go. Brittany’s writing is outstanding and it kept me completely gripped to the story from start to finish. She creates these wonderful and loving relationships between the whole crew of characters and she makes you fall in love with them to the core. I loved Hazel, Ian, Big Paw and Holly, James, Marcus and Eric, Rosie. I just loved this family feel the whole novel has and how it develops together with the love story and the band’s new fame.

“What does a promise from a boy like you mean to a girl like me, Ian Parker?” “Everything,” I confessed. “It means everything.”

But now let’s focus on Ian and Hazel. Gah, these two! I loved how Brittainy developed their hate/friendship, how they get to know each other, how they peel the layers and find so much more than what they were expecting. They love each other so much and it shows. Their beautiful connection and chemistry is on every word in this book. And it’s not all hearts and flowers for them. It gets difficult and heartbreaking but their love for each other and their family is stronger than anything else. I just loved seeing this couple grow and fall in love.

This woman controls my heartbeats. Every love lyric I sing each night is made for her. Every melody chases her heartbeat, and every chorus begs for her love.

Therefore, I am rating The Wreckage of Us with 4.5 STARS because this love story consumed me completely and I was all over it. I loved the premise of it and Brittainy definitely delivered. I fallen in love with this couple and these crew of characters and I wish we could get more (can we get love stories for all the members of The Wreckage, pretty pleeeeeeeease?). If you are in the mood for an opposites attract angsty romance, you should check this one out for sure!
