Review: Tristan & Isabel: Apartment 11F by Aly Stiles (Wreck Me #3)


Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.

"This doesn't end well, Iz," he whispers in a defeated tone. 
"That's because it's not supposed to end," I whisper back. 

So, who do I speak to in order to get my heart back because Tristan Haverford stole it the minute he stepped through the door of Apartment 11F. His story, one he shares with Isabel Gardner, totally wrecked me in the best way possible. Tristan & Isabel: Apartment 11F is the third novel in the Wreck Me series, and Aly Stiles did not hold back, delivering a story that rips your heart out piece by piece then stitches it all back together by the end.

When he was nineteen, Tristan Haverford made two choices that would change his life: he broke seventeen-year-old Isabel Gardner's heart, and he confessed to a hit-and-run that cost a teenager her life. Four years later, Isabel's life has moved forward, and she's enjoying being a college student. And then her best friend and roommate informs her that someone will be moving in with them--none other than Tristan, who is out on parole.

Oh, Tristan, Tristan, Tristan. My heart broke for every single thing he went through. I already had a feeling what that first twist was, and as I anticipated its revelation, my emotions were in freefall. I seriously wanted to defend him each time he was treated like was less than who he was. There were moments where I teared up, realizing everything that was being thrown Tristan's way, yet he persevered, even amidst the insurmountable.

As much as I adored Tristan, I think Isabel said it best: This isn't just his story. She was someone who had a quiet strength to her and she spoke up for Tristan when he chose to stay silent. These two had a deep love for each other in spite of the obstacles they had to hurdle over the years. I knew how extraordinary a storyteller Aly Stiles was, but she surpassed any and all expectations. Five-plus stars go to Tristan & Isabel: Apartment 11F.
