Review: Wreck by Ginger Scott (Fuel #2)
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wordsmith Publicity.
Wreck is the second novel in Ginger Scott's Fuel trilogy, and I was prepared for the continuation of Dustin Bridges and Hannah Judge's story to wreck me (pun oh-so-intended). Picking up about four or so years after the end of the series starter, Shift. When he made the decision to leave Camp Verde, Dustin knew that he was breaking both Hannah's heart and the promise he made to her. In the process, he was breaking his own heart, but this is what he believed to be the best thing for the girl he loved. Four years later, he's called back to his hometown, but if he believed this would be his opportunity to make amends and rebuild what he had with the Judges, he was mistaken. Gone is the girl who looked at him with nothing but adoration; in her place is a woman who wants nothing to do with him. He wrecked her heart four years ago; will she return the favor?
There's a thing about second books in a trilogy that oftentimes leaves me a wee bit wary. Experience has taught me that they tend to feel like fillers before we get the conclusion sometime later. But this is Ginger Scott we're talking about here, and she keeps up the pace she set in the first book. Dustin and Hannah have done some growing up in the years they've been apart. They've obviously changed, but at their very core, that love that's always existed remains, even though Hannah holds a whole lot of resentment over what Dustin did. He knew he was going to have to redeem himself, and he knew that it was going to be easy. There were moments where I was so darn tempted to give these two a serious talking to, especially Hannah, who honestly frustrated me more than Dustin did. We've got another cliffhanger, but the conclusion is in two weeks! 4.5 stars go to Wreck.
