Wreck Me/Restore Me Promotion: J.L. Mac


Wreck Me
Add to Goodreads        Buy: Nook/Kindle

Life can be cruel. People can be ruthless and evil. The world can be cold and uninviting. No one knows these things better than Josephine Geroux. By her own definition, she is a twenty-five year old “nobody with nothing,” and she is content to stay that way. Growing up an orphan has made her tough and indifferent to the people around her until she meets a strangely familiar man with a face that haunts her for reasons she can’t understand.

Despite the pain that will inevitably ensue, she makes it her mission to discover what parts of her tragic puzzle she is missing. On her journey to discovering why the she feels an alarming connection to an absolute stranger, her greatest fear is reawakening the demons and darkness from the past that will surely overtake her if she lets her guard down. 

Little does Josephine know that the past should be the least of her worries. She is toying with a man who has already broken her heart once. She just doesn’t realize it. Although she makes it a point to avoid interactions with others, Josephine’s life becomes entangled with the enigmatic stranger. Before she realizes it, she has given herself over to the one person who is close enough to wreck her.

Restore Me (Wreck Me #2)
Add to Goodreads 
Release date March 27, 2013


Navigating the world alone was all Josephine Geroux had ever known. Life altering tragedy struck early on for her. She learned the hard way to adapt and survive.
As a young girl she endured an admirable struggle through her youth. She managed to arrive at adulthood in one piece in spite of it all.
After such chaos, maintaining a life free of complications was 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 than one way. The pull between Josephine and Damon seemed like fate bringing things full circle.
With another devastating loss looming Josephine has to fight to hold on to the very thing that brought her to her knees.
She finds herself faced with choosing between a promising future or 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. 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 Josephine is helpless to watch 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? She is left to make a decision; accept the circumstances she finds herself in or fight with unwavering ferocity to restore what has been damaged.



Extended teaser from RESTORE ME

The urge to cry is all I have known for days now. I wept hard initially. I cried so hard I was damn near sick. The stinging sensation of looming tears is there, but they won’t come now. I have heard the saying “all out of tears” before, but I didn’t think anything of it. I suppose I assumed that it was another one of those stupid adages that people insist on overusing. Serious as a heart attack; the apple never falls far from the tree; what goes around comes around, and all those other bullshit things I usually tune out. Actually, I think I tune out nearly everything that others say. I consider it a gift.
I slide the clothes I need from the hangers and tuck them neatly into a bag. I gather some of my personal effects, too. Poor Hemingway has no clue what’s going on. My sweet little pup has no idea that the only daddy he has ever known is gone; he just knows something is wrong. Dogs know those sorts of things. I look down and there he is, my little Hemingway, looking up at me with curious eyes. I bend down, ruffle the scruffy fur atop his head, and scoop him up.

“Let’s get going. No use in putting it off. You gotta do what you gotta do, right?” I ask the the dog, cringing when I hear the stupid adage sail out of my mouth. Stupid fucking adages.

I gather up the things I need and drift around the penthouse. When I cross through the library, I pause for a beat and feel like tears may actually come. I wait, perhaps even hoping for the emotion I am missing. It’s a testament to my pathological self-destructive behavior. Somewhere in my screwed up head, I think that maybe, if I could cry really hard, I’d feel better; I’d cry it all out and get it over with. I guess I feel like if I wept long enough and hard enough, the burden of guilt might be lifted.

“So stupid.” I stare into the library, where he took my mind, soul and body. No amount of sobbing could ebb away what I feel. It’s my fault he did what he did. It’s me who didn’t ask for the whole story about the accident. It’s me who assumed it was Damon driving. The boy at the scene kept saying it was his fault. I always assumed that meant he was driving. If I hadn’t left him, none of this would’ve happened.

I hug Hemingway under my arm and make my way to the door. I am supposed to meet Brian in half an hour to sort out “the details.” I am not looking forward to it, but it has to be done.



J.L. Mac's muses for Damon and Jo are Rick Malambri and Ashley Greene.
