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.

We're in a small Nebraska town.
(Why does that sound like the beginning of a Richard Marx song?🤔)
There are lots of drugs in this town and only one big ranch where people can still find work.
Big Paw's Ranch. That's where 18 year old Hazel is asking for a job as a ranch hand. She needs the money! Her mom is pregnant from her drug-dealing idiot of a boyfriend and nobody seems to care about the baby ... Hazel wants to make sure her mom's taken care of.
Big Paw's grandson Ian is Hazel's new boss.
He's not only a hot ranch worker - he's also an up and coming rock star with his barn band The Wreckage.
Hazel and Ian do NOT get along at all .... at first ☺
Let the fun times begin ...

Another beautiful Brittainy book!
What can I say?
I loved it.
It was sweet and funny and farmy and rock stary and a bit heartbreaking and dangerous and sad and hopeless but still full of hope and dreams and music and ugh. I just loved reading it.
Both Ian and Hazel have to fight through some drug-related parental problems to find their happily ever after. But they have each other and music and the grandparents and friends. It was really adorable to see them fight for that happy end. I wanted to throw the kindle out the window a couple of times towards the end when the expected 'danger' / 'fight' / 'misunderstanding' / 'breakup' came along. But they cleared that up pretty fast so it wasn't that bad.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved that we got a few epiloguey pages at the end!

I also wouldn't mind seeing this on Netflix one day with all the music and pig pen cleaning. ☺

It wasn't really anything new in the world of young love and rock star romances. BUT it also was, because I really loved the whole small town ranch thing plus the music and the baby sister. It was really a cute love story!

THE WRECKAGE OF US was another beautiful Brittainy Cherry love story. Heartbreaking. Funny. Romantic. Adorable. Farmish. Rock-Star-ish.
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Ian - this one is MINE! ☺
