He's driving her crazy...
Piper West is finally on her own, and it's time to get crazy. Except that her overprotective big bro has enlisted his ex-cop best friend to keep an eye on his baby sister. With every move monitored and reported back, Piper's life has gone from "going crazy" to "being driven crazy." But a searing-hot kiss with her sexy and scarred watchdog is just the game-changer she needs...
Cole Black owes Piper's brother big-time, but there's nothing easy about his new assignment. Piper is all feisty sexiness and curves meant to tempt a man beyond reason, and Cole can't stop himself. Now he's caught up in a hunger like nothing he's ever known, and he can't get enough...
Even if Piper's the one girl he's not allowed to have.

Wrecked is the third book in the Axel Alley Vipers series by Sherliee Gray. It can be read as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading Crashed (book one), and Revved (book two) to understand the characters that are in this novel. Piper along with her sister, Rusty, and best friend, Alex, own and operate a custom car renovation garage. Both Rusty and Alex have found their men, this story features Piper!
Piper has been in love with her brother’s best friend, Cole, since she was a teen. She thought she was over him when he left after high school. Now he’s back-managing her brother’s security firm. Everything she thought she knew just went out the window. She’s never been over him. How can she make him understand he’s always been the one?
Cole is back in town after a car accident has left him scarred and mourning the loss of his friend. He knows it is going to be tough seeing Piper again. He’s been drawn to her, but she’s his best friend’s sister, so that means she’s off limits. He’s had to keep his feelings quiet. But after seeing her, he can’t get her out of his head. They start a no-strings affair on the sly. They will each get the other out of their system and move on. But what happens when neither has any intention of moving on and some insecurities surface? How can they call it quits, when they both feel they can’t live without the other?
Wow what a rollercoaster ride this book and whole series has been! I loved Piper and her generous nature. She fixes. If something is broke and she can help, she will. She knows Cole is torn up in his head after his car accident and she is determined to help him break free of the hold it has on him. Cole is definitely a mess! I can see why he feels this way. The baggage is totally believable and I really felt so bad for what he has endured. Piper is every thing to him and he just needed to work through his crap on his own time frame. People can help, but you have to put in the work to get through it yourself! I was glad he had some ah-ha moments and knew the author was going to write in a HEA for Cole and Piper. Yay! Wrecked is a very fitting ending to this series! Each girl is strong, likeable, and a force to be reckoned with! I would not hesitate to have them as my friends. I was initially drawn to the series because I too, work in what is typically a man’s occupation. Sherilee Gray did a great job of showing their vulnerabilities along with their grittiness! I admired the girls tenacity and was happy to see them succeed in business and in love! I highly recommend the complete Axle Alley Viper series as it was genuinely an all-around captivating read!
