Aly Martinez – Wrecked and Ruined Series Reading Order

by Maryse on May 28, 2014 · 7 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

<— Here’s a book that gave me a HUGE *blurb jolt* and delivered exactly what that jolt promised. This series is a MUST READ.

  • Especially if you love characters that feel real. Feel like our friends (or friends we wished we had).
  • Especially if you like flawed and bossy alpha-males (that are wonderfully heroic, even in their occasional “alpha-jerk” obnoxiousness). ‘Cause these guys can be too bossy for their own good, but couple that with super-sweet, and I simply can’t resist. ;)
  • Especially if you like deepish-dark stories with a realistic feel. Darkish, yes… but still loaded in heartwarming, hilarious moments and reactions. I giggled and snorted in delight throughout. And I teared-up and clutched my chest in angsty pain, too.
  • Especially if you like twisty-turny ongoing story lines (that expand with each book) with *gasp-worthy* (and sob-worthy) scenes.
  • Especially if you like books that you obsessively think about each time you put them down (*if* you can put it down, that is) and still think about hours (and even days) after you finished ‘em…

then… THESE! These are fantastic! Check out my review of Changing Course and Stolen Course.

And these fellow readers agree. :D

Michelle: WOW!  Finished Changing Course yesterday and Stolen Course today.  Both are wonderful.  I really loved Brett and Emma’s story, but I think Caleb and Emma’s was even better.  Some of Caleb’s scenes were just heartbreaking, but also seemed so real.  The stories are certainly emotional, but not over the top angst or unrealistic situations.  And the characters seem like regular friends you could relate to.  I would read any future book Aly Martinez writes in this series.  I would love to see Kara’s book.  She is hilarious!

Lauren: excellent book….5 stars for me!!

Lauren: I loved Caleb so much in book 1 that I think I cried more for him than Brett.

Jody: The twisty bit was not what I was expecting at all and I can usually pick them. I miss the boys already now don’t know what to do. :(

Teresa: I loved Changing Course and Stolen Course….4.5-star reads for me, but I absolutely loved, loved Savor Me: A Novella which has Hunter, Emma’s friend from book two, in it.  It was a really short read, but it was just really cute and HOT!

Jean: OMG I am only into the prologue and I am already crying!

Danielle: Maryse I just finished this book today and I love it too! I really hope she continues on with different characters. I would love to see a book with Eli and Casey or even Sarah. These books have a Kristen Ashley feel to them for me and I didnt want the story to end where it did..I wanted more!

About book #1:

I met Sarah Kate Erickson when I was twenty-one years old. I was lucky enough to keep her for seven years before a tragic accident stole her from me. She didn’t die, but sometimes I think it would have been easier if she had.

I lived in a haze for those four years after the accident. Catering to her every need, even though she hated the very sight of my face. I tried to hold on to her and the future that we were supposed to build together. But you can’t hold on to someone that doesn’t exist anymore.

It wasn’t until I met Jesse Addison, a barista at the local coffee shop, that I realized I didn’t just lose Sarah that tragic night, I lost myself as well. Jesse taught me how to let go of the past and learn to love again. But what happens when your past haunts your present, and the woman you used to love refuses to accept the woman you can’t live without?

OMG RIGHT!!???? YES!!! THAT is the blurb that gave me that jolt! What you’re feeling right now after reading that? That is how I felt! And everything you are imaging… yep. You’ll get to live it! This is one of those “blurbs” that totally matches the book.

I just finished Stolen Course yesterday and I loved it!!!! Still need to read Savor Me and definitely looking for more from this series! Do you know which character will be highlighted in Broken Course? Just curious….

Maryse May 29, 2014 at 9:29 AM

I do. I do. :) It’s top secret right now… *giggle*

Er… or maybe a “part” of the character reveal is top secret, since… you know. There are more than just one. :P

But yep. I’m gonna read it for sure!

I have just discovered your blog last week and oh my. I don’t know what to read next. I read three books over the weekend and finished Monster in His Eyes last night which I loved. Now it’s between Changing Course and Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters. Any suggestions?

I’m obsessed with this series!!!

Amber… I am DYING to tell. It’s SO HARD to keep my lips zipped. As soon as she gives me the okay, I will announce.

Maryse May 29, 2014 at 7:08 PM

Tracy… I think Tears of Tess is pretty dark if I can recall. I guess it depends on your mood, but I would definitely recommend this one for sure!
