REVIEW BY SHAE! THE WRECK BY MARIE FORCE (@marieforce)
The Wreck is a New York Times and USA Today bestseller!
Carly Holbrook and Brian Westbury are weeks away from their high school graduation. The young couple plans to marry before they head to college, and their future seems bright with promise. Everything changes one spring night when their six closest friends, including Brian's younger brother, are killed in a fiery car accident that Carly and Brian witness. The trauma leaves Carly unable to speak, and Brian is forced to make unimaginable decisions about a future that once seemed so certain. With Carly incapable of going forward with their plans, Brian leaves home--and Carly--for good. Fifteen years later, disturbing new clues indicate the accident that wrecked so many lives wasn't an accident at all, bringing Brian home to face a past--and a love--he's never forgotten.
Amazing! Just simply amazing! Marie Force is simply phenomenal! I became a fan after reading her Fatal Series, then McCarthy series. I learned she had stand-alone books. “The Wreck” is a stand-alone. Force knows how to bring on the emotional rollercoaster. She allows her readers to experience all the joys, struggles, sadness, anger, etc. that her characters do. Her books are a must add to your libraries.
The wreck in the beginning of this book is heart wrenching and tragic for all who are affected. It alters lives in a way that are unbelievably common. Force takes us along the road of the strength found in “first love.” My heart was ripped out of my chest twice during the reading of the “The Wreck.” I was quite thankful that my kindle pages couldn’t get soaked from my tears. Brian and Carly try to pick up what is left of their lives after the wreck. With the loss of Brian’s brother and their best friends, Brian succeeds much better than Carly or so we think. There is mystery in the air after 15 years passes. Was it an accident or was the wreck the cause of a deliberate action of another? Will Brian and Carly’s love survive?
