Restore Me by J.L. Mac ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

Blurb (from Goodreads):

Navigating the world alone is all Josephine Geroux has ever known. Life altering tragedy struck early on for her. She endured an admirable struggle through her youth and learned the hard way how to adapt and survive. She managed to arrive at adulthood in one piece in spite of it all.

After such chaos, maintaining a life free of complications is a priority for her.
Everything changed when a man with amber eyes came through her door and claimed her heart. She fell hard in more ways than one. The pull between Jo and Damon seemed like fate bringing things full circle.

With another devastating loss looming, Jo fights to hold on to the very thing that brought her to her knees. She finds herself torn between a promising future and clinging to a devastating past.
But that’s not the most worrisome problem on her hands.

She must convince more than just herself to let the past stay in the past, where it belongs, but on her journey to find closure and resolution, she does the exact opposite. An old wound caused by a heinous act becomes exposed for what it is. The truth is catastrophic and Jo is helpless, watching as the ruins of her fragile world endure more turmoil.

Can something conceived from tragedy and malice end well? Can something so completely poisoned conquer adversity? Jo is left to make a decision; accept the circumstances she finds herself in or fight with unwavering ferocity to restore what has been damaged.
*Restore Me is the second book in the Wrecked series*


“Technically the text was to Brian. If you wanted to know where I was, you should’ve contacted me yourself, and not used a go-between.”

He closes the space between us. The heat radiating off his chest is close enough to feel. I’m intimidated but I want to gather him up in my arms and tell him that everything is going to be okay, too. “Don’t test me,” he warns.

Something tells me I should listen, but fuck that. I’ve never been one to just sit down and shut up. If he wants to know where I’m at when I’m out, then he needs to stop acting like someone pissed in his cereal. With this kind of cold shoulder, I’m not sure he even wants me around. Everything is up in the air anyway. We haven’t dealt with anything, much less the subject of me leaving him. I want to make things work. I hope he feels the same. Right now it’s really difficult to tell.

“You act like you hate me,” I say. “This is the first time you’ve spoken to me and it’s to reprimand me?! If you don’t want me here, I can call Brian to come hang out with you and I can go back to Captain’s house.” I break eye contact with him and do my best to look a whole lot braver on the outside than I feel on the inside. I’d give my next breath right about now just to hear three words from his gorgeous mouth.

He grips my hips and turns me to face the counter. His hot, bare chest is pressed against my back while his hips hold mine immobile against the island. Fuck, it feels amazing. One hand snakes up my hip, glides up my rib cage, over the curve of my breast, and comes to a stop at my cheek. He firmly grips my jaw as he leans further forward into me. His lips brush against the rim of my ear as he speaks. “Haven’t you done enough leaving, Josephine?”



I absolutely don't feel "Restored" after reading book 2. Restore Me was another roller coaster ride on a tidal wave of emotions. This book takes you in so many directions you are mentally exhausted but you can't help but enjoy the ride! 5 FABULOUS Stars

J.L. Mac brought every emotion a person could feel into this story. Love, laughter (lots of this with Jo and Grams), and turmoil. I love J.L.'s writing style. She has brought her characters to life. The banter between the characters flowed so easy without any second guessing. But of course Josephine's filthy mouth and her attitude is what I absolutely LOVED!

"It's good to see I haven't lost my charm during my stint with heartbreak; my mouth is still filthy and locked and loaded with plenty of smart ass remarks."

Restore Me is the continuation of Josephine and Damon's story of love, loss, suspense, and lots of drama. Both 'Wreck Me' and 'Restore Me' are so emotionally heart wrenching and so touching all at the same time. I never thought I could feel so much from a book, then to add to all the feelings were so many twist and turns and lots of surprises. I really am trying to be careful of what I say because I do not want to give any 'spoilers'!

This absolutely is one of my top favorite series this year.

Congrats J.L. Mac! Another FABULOUS job and I'll be anxiously awaiting the next book!!!
