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.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

I honestly was not that impressed with Wreck Me (Read my review HERE) and really didn’t know what to expect with Restore Me. And after staying up all night reading it,  I would have to say that this has to be one my top 3 favorite reads for this year . It was raw, it was  emotional, it was heart wrenching and  powerful. It had me in tears from the very beginning, at the Prologue. My poor husband had to ask me multiple times what was wrong with me.

Compared to Wreck Me, there were many more elements added in this story which would normally make it overwhelming and even somewhat confusing but Ms. Mac pulled all of the different new aspects  together  flawlessly.


Oh, Hell no maintenance man, GTFO!

First there’s Jo and  her emotional turmoil she’s experiencing after the incident that Damon pulled in book 1,  then there’s a new guy that’s gets introduced into the story , then of course there was the relationship rebuilding which was FANTABOULOUS and the absolute kicker in this one is dealing with the demanding and unexpected relations.

I had once compared this series to another one of my favorite series, and to be honest I think this one will come out on top. I cheered and I cried, yelled and I even giggled at Grams antics. It was such an emotional roller coaster….a  ride that I didn’t want to get off of. Thank you, thank you Ms. Mac for writing such a phenomenal story.
