Author: Shiloh Walker
In the nineties, Abigale Applegate and Zach Barnes were the most beloved sitcom child stars in the world. Then they grew up and left Hollywood behind…
Whatever happened to Abigale Applegate?
She’s been wondering the same thing.
With her Hollywood dreams long gone, Abigale now has a nice, neat, uncomplicated life—until the day her perfect fiancé needs to talk. Dumped, a little more than shattered, and totally confused, Abigale turns to Zach, her best friend since forever, to help her pick up the pieces. He does it with a gift—a copy of Wreck This Journal. She can vent her frustrations, and sketch out a new plan. Zach just hopes he’s part of it. Because he’s been in love with Abigale his entire life.
When the journal falls into Zach’s hands, he discovers Abigale wants a new man. And fast. Nothing more than a hot distraction. Zach has a strategy, too. He’s going to be that man. It’s his last chance. Abigale might be out to shake up her life, but Zach’s out to reinvent it. Now, all he has to do is convince Abigale that life can go as planned.
I’ve only read a couple of Shiloh’s books and I have to admit I’ve really enjoyed them. So when I received this book I was excited to read it.
Reading this book I had mixed feelings. One hand I loved Zach, there was nothing about him I didn’t like. From his tattooed body…ok I admit I drooled a lot when his body was described. To his devotion to Abigale. I loved how he knew who and what he was and wasn’t afraid to follow his dreams. Even when one dream seemed completely unattainable.
Abigale on the other hand drove me bat shit crazy. Granted if I’d lived her childhood I would probably have reacted the same way. Once she started to work on the things in her journal well then my feelings for her started to change. Especially as she was trying to change.
This is one of this books where you, at least I did, start off not liking the heroine but by the end of the book cheering her on. Her journey to finding out who she is and what makes her really happy is one we (meaning women) can appreciate and enjoy.
Zach…well he pretty much rocks it through out the book.
If you like great contemporary stories with hot heroes who think the heroine is perfect even if she’s a little anal retentive about some things then you will love this book. I know I did.
This will be a book I will re-read for me at least once a year.
