Mysterious and sexy, Grayson Falcon steers clear of commitment in all forms. He takes the road less traveled, avoiding the demons of his past and the nightmares they cause. He uses his good looks and country charm to attain pleasure, but it is always a short-lived reprieve.
Sweet and scarred.
Once believing that love can conquer all, Mandee Carlain’s life was then turned upside down and inside out. Her beauty queen good looks and sweet smile always caught the eye of the wrong kind of man. However, as a survivor, she still holds on to hope that one day she will come face to face with the man whose whispered words will give her strength to still believe.
What happens when the hopeless find hope ...at the wrong time?
I can't even explain how sad I am to see this series come to a close. I need for there to be more Falcon brothers! But, as far as conclusions go, this one was pretty spectacular. I think of the 3 books, I have to rank Wasted only slightly behind Hammered and before Destroyed. I loved Gray SO MUCH! He is the baby of the family but held so much weight that no one had a clue about, all in order to protect the ones he loves. And Mandee, she was the perfect woman for him. Their story is so sweet, so unexpected, so EVERYTHING. This series has been full of gut punching secrets and revelations and Wasted was no exception. However, in terms of drama, I think this was the least angsty out of all of the books and thank goodness for that. But there is a twist in there that I was in no way expecting and it just elevated the story in a way only MJ Fields can. Wasted was also more of a slow burn than the other two - we don't get any action until around 52% but when it happens, it's all the dirty, filthy, intense hotness that I've come to expect from Ms. Fields. This will be a book that I re-read over and over again - and I hope that the series is eventually added to Audible as well, because I long to hear the Falcon brothers' voices (particularly songbird Grayson) in my ears. I give Wasted 5 out of 5 wine glasses. Can't wait for the novella and whatever else MJ Fields comes out with!
When I have made peace with my anger, released it in tears and screams and allowed my body to float and release the tension, I simply float, eyes closed, kicking my feet ever so often, moving my arms when I feel I should and allow myself to drift toward reality’s shores.
I feel my foot drag across the lake’s floor and sigh as I push my feet down and stand, opening my eyes.
I gasp when I see him, Grayson, standing on the gravel, my dress over his shoulder and a towel in his hand. His square jaw, peppered with a few days’ worth of growth and slightly lighter than that on his head, his jaw is tight, and I see the muscles in it working. His eyes are so deeply connected to mine it renders me almost unmoving.
The way he looks at me is unrecognizable. Angry? Annoyed?
When his eyes leave mine after what seems like an eternity, then move to my lips, I wonder if there is something on them. Then they slowly, very slowly, move down my body. At this moment, I remember I am in a bra and panties, in front of Grayson Falcon, sexiest man alive.
I quickly sink down to a seated position and curl into myself, hiding myself, incredibly insecure and horrifically embarrassed.
“You’re blue, Mandee, and blue isn’t a good color on you. Come on; get up out of there.”
