Blog Tour & Giveaway - Restore Me by J.L. Mac

Navigating the world alone is all Josephine Geroux has ever known. Life altering tragedy struck early on for her. She endured an admirable struggle through her youth and learned the hard way how to adapt and survive. She managed to arrive at adulthood in one piece in spite of it all.

After such chaos, maintaining a life free of complications is a priority for her.

Everything changed when a man with amber eyes came through her door and claimed her heart. She fell hard in more ways than one. The pull between Jo and Damon seemed like fate bringing things full circle.

With another devastating loss looming, Jo fights to hold on to the very thing that brought her to her knees. She finds herself torn between a promising future and clinging to a devastating past.
But that’s not the most worrisome problem on her hands.

She must convince more than just herself to let the past stay in the past, where it belongs, but on her journey to find closure and resolution, she does the exact opposite. An old wound caused by a heinous act becomes exposed for what it is. The truth is catastrophic and Jo is helpless, watching as the ruins of her fragile world endure more turmoil.

Can something conceived from tragedy and malice end well? Can something so completely poisoned conquer adversity? Jo is left to make a decision; accept the circumstances she finds herself in or fight with unwavering ferocity to restore what has been damaged.

*Restore Me is the second book in the Wrecked series*

EXCERPT:

I never realized my attachment to Captain was as strong as it was; what it still is, until he was gone. I loved him and now that he’s gone, naming me as his beneficiary, I know that the old codger loved me, too. Our relationship seemed to be based on mutual tolerance, and I don’t know that it could’ve gone any other way. I’m a disaster area and so was he. He spoke very little about the nasty divorce and estranged family that did him in; I don’t exactly know the reason for the fallout, but I know that it destroyed him. It made him lonely and bitter, so we were lonely and bitter together. It worked for us. I had someone to be accountable to and he did, too. We had a bond even if we didn’t recognize it.

A lump grows in my throat and I do my best to swallow it before fucking choking on it. Still no tears. If he were still alive, I’d hug him as hard as I could and tell him that it’s okay that we’re both all fucked up, because at least we’re all fucked up together. Even the screwed up, damaged people in the world need someone to love and rely on. Maybe that’s why Damon and I got along so well so fast; I’d had a lot of practice coexisting with sad, damaged Captain.

“Knock-knock!”

I shake off my emotion and walk out of the office into the store to see Brian standing awkwardly amidst the construction, man-purse slung over his shoulder. He’s a textbook gay man who’s very out of the closet. Actually, he may have never been in the closet at all. I kind of think he was born wearing skinny jeans, a fashion-forward blazer, and designer frames.
