I loved him before I knew what the word meant.
From skinned knees to first dates and everything in between.
But he was never mine to love.
I settled for friendship, even though I always wanted more.
That was before.
Before he ripped my world apart and didn’t bother sticking around to help me pick up the pieces.
I knit every last shred back together all on my own.
And I’ve all but forgotten his name.
Now, he’s back, and everything is torn apart once more.
But he’s not the only one doing the tearing this time.
And there might be no stopping the person who has it out for us both.
Reckless Memories is a friends to enemies to lovers story and the beginning of the Wrecked series. Ford and Isabelle have known each other forever and Isabelle has loved him since she can remember but when their world is ripped out from under them, Ford disappears without a word. Ten years later, Bell has healed from the pain of the accident and has moved on with her life, that is until Ford walks back into The Catch and the pain of her past comes slamming back. After talking and clearing the air between them, someone else feels that they still need to pay.
WOW!!!! This was a great introduction to Catherine Cowles and will not be my last book by her. The emotions and suspense of this book had me unable to put the book down. The pain and then eventual healing that Ford and Bell endured with each other was so complete. I loved the strong connection between Ford and Bell right from the beginning and was happy that their past did not stop their future. There were a few shocking twists in the book that I did not see coming. I can not wait for more from the crew on Anchor Island. Another amazing job by narrators Joe Arden and Andi Arndt. These two are the first pair I ever listened to and they are still my top narrators.

Catherine has done it again!
Another heart wrenching book, another happy reader. Ford had me quite intrigued when we were first introduced to him in Further to Fall. We got to see his playful side, but there was a tortured soul beneath his playful exterior and I really enjoyed delving into Reckless Memories.
This story is filled with grief and sorrow but most of all its filled with love. Ford and Bells love story is a unique one with many twists and turns. But what melted my heart most of all is the love between two sisters. Despite the loss and turmoil surrounding the accident Bell finds the most beautiful ways to remember and celebrate her sisters life.
If you don't have this on your TBR list, you don't know what your missing!
