Wrecked Without You is a work of fiction in the romance genre, and is the first book in A Town of Deer Crossing series. It is aimed at adult readers owing to steamy romance scenes and the use of explicit language and was penned by author Renee Shelbey. The book follows the arrival of Dr. William Mason in Deer Crossing and the profound effect that he has on the women of the community, in particular with Nat, the leader of the scout troop that Will’s stepdaughters join. The attraction is instant, but the secrets the pair hold could destroy their relationship before it ever has a chance to soar.
I adored the town of Deer Crossing, even with just this first entry in the series. The book creates an idyllic environment for lost souls to inhabit as they search for love and fulfillment in their lives. The author, Renee Shelbey, clearly has an eye for what makes an attractive world for her characters, and her descriptive prose certainly does an incredible job of bringing that world to life. On the subject of bringing things to life, I’d be remiss to talk about the book without praising the characterization of Will and Nat, both of whom are dynamic and complex with their difficult pasts and current-day struggles, but both of whom managed to stay relatable enough for me to be rooting for them the whole way through. Wrecked Without You is a brilliant piece of romantic fiction for someone to get lost in, with a wonderful backdrop, engaging characters, and a relationship story filled with twists, turns, and drama.
