For the first time in her life, 25-year-old Josephine Geroux has a future worth looking forward to. She has her beloved bookstore, she has all the comforts that money can buy, she has found the love of her life, and most importantly, she has found hope where there was none for 16 long years.
After the tragic deaths of her parents and her troubled life as an orphan, she met Damon Cole, a man who has everything to do with it all. He’s part of the reason for her wrecked life, but he’s also the reason that her heart has been restored. He’s her future and the exact reason that she’s so willing to fight the demons from his past that threaten the very future that she so desperately seeks.
In the final book of the Wrecked series, Jo is confronted with a turbulent history that has her negotiating the twists and turns that end up being far more difficult to handle than she ever could have anticipated. Jo’s relationship with enigmatic Damon is delicate at best, especially after she inadvertently discovers details about his life that may have been better left buried.
Since Damon’s dark past has remained hidden for so long, Jo’s investigation puts her dangerously close to jeopardizing her already fragile relationship with the man she loves.
Jo has a promising future at her fingertips; she must decide if revealing the truth to Damon is a gamble she’s willing to take. With so much at stake, acceptance proves to be Jo’s greatest battle to date.
Someone knocks lightly on the door. Speak of the devil. Damon swings it open and takes one look at the shit on the floor then at the two of us and shakes his head.
“Might I ask what you two are up to?”
“Pimpin’ Grams’ walker,” I answer just as plainly as Grams explained to me.
“I see.” He nods and holds back a smile, stuffing his big paws into the pockets of his pants. Damn, he’s beautiful. It’s the greatest kind of irony looking at my Big Man. He’s beautiful in every way, charming and driven and generous, yet he was born out of pure evil.
I’m quick to chase away that train of thought. I eye the tape closely as I wrap it carefully around the flashlight, fastening it to the front rail of Grams’ walker and tucking down all the sticky pieces. Two more strips and it’s done.
“There.” I smile at Grams and set her walker upright in front of her. “Now you’ve got a headlight.”
“Beautiful!” Grams declares. “I’ll call it the One-Eyed Beast.”
“Please don’t,” I quickly respond, choking down a giggle.
Grams smiles slyly and sits back in her chair thinking up better names, no doubt.

I read Wreck Me last March and fell head over heels in love with both Damon and Josephine. Damon was the dark, brooding, dominant tortured soul with a black cloud permanently hanging over his head. Josephine was the woman whose childhood ended at 9 years old. She was a strong but emotionally cut off young adult with a potty mouth and very few close people.
Last April, not long after discovering JL Mac and this wonderful couple and having their story to date end on a stupendous cliffhanger, Restore Me was release and I devoured their story once more. Gobbled up Damon’s Zombie state and Jo’s determination and obvious love for him and had a happy ending.
But that wasn’t enough for me and others. We needed and wanted more of them.
Here is where the 9 month wait ended. Accept Me was released at the end of January. I was so excited! I had re read Restore Me and remembered how the ending went including an epilogue of sorts from Edward, Damon’s father’s, POV! And then I remembered why we all needed more! What could this ended have meant?
JL Mac does not disappoint with the third in the series! Twists, turns, swoons, heartache and laughter! We welcome back Noni, Brian and Grams with open arms and fall in love with them all over again! My heart surely couldn’t take much more after the first two books but no, there was more in Accept Me that left me bereft and hoping beyond hope that everything would work out in the end for the loveable couple. Damon’s alpha male tendencies and Jo’s stubbornness come to blows and we see more of an insight into their deep love for one another.
There was no falling in love with Damon. I was not swept of my feet and convinced to be his love. He came into my life, took my hand and I breathed him.
New characters are added to the story in the form of Brian’s sister and nephew which will lead nicely into Reach Me, an accompanying novella due out this year also. Another one I cannot wait to pick up, read as quickly as possible and lose myself in!
Thank you, Jaimi, for their HEA! They certainly deserved it!
5 out of 5!
