Review: Trashed by Jasinda Wilder

I’m nobody. I’m an orphan. A janitor. A college student. A virgin.
And him? He’s a god. One of the hottest action stars to ever grace the silver screen, huge and muscular and gorgeous and famous. He could have anyone in the world.
Yet, despite the chasm separating my world from his, I find myself in his hotel room, and he’s acting like I’m the most beautiful girl in the world. I’m not. He’s everything every woman could ever want, and I’m just…me.


She doesn’t know how sexy she is, and that’s it’s own kind of beauty. But for real, she’s gorgeous. I’ve met some of the hottest women in Hollywood, and none of them can hold a candle to this girl. I want her. And the fact that she’s closed off and impossible to figure out only makes the pursuit that much more intriguing.
The last thing I expect is for one night of pleasure to turn into something I’m unable to forget, even after she’s gone her way and I’ve gone mine. I can’t forget her, no matter how I try. And the next time we run into each other, I know there’s no way I can let her go again. No matter what it takes.

***This is a full length, stand-alone contemporary romance, set in the world of STRIPPED***

4 Star Review by Allison East

Whenever I read a Jasinda Wilder book, I am transported to the setting of the story. And with this book, it was no different. She sets up a world in which, I could see myself living. I could see myself being friends with the characters. And I can see the story through her eyes.  It's all about the writing- and Jasinda is damn good at it. I knew this book had big shoes to fill- I mean one of my favorite books ever is Captured, so I compare all the books to that one. And while Captured is still my favorite Wilder book, Trashed can be included in the top ten list of all things Jasinda. This book is told in dual POV, which is one of my favorite things an author does. I like to hear the thoughts of both the hero and the heroine.

Adam Trenton is an up and coming movie star- think Jesse Williams from Grey's Anatomy- but buffer! (at least that is who I pictured anyway's) Hot, built, ripped- and an all around decent human being. He is on sabbatical between films, visiting an island- and attending a benefit. That's
when he is blind sighted by Des Ross.

Des is college student/janitor/trash collector- think a jet black haired Whitney Thompson (google her, she is gorgeous- and who I picture as Des! She won America's next top model- the plus size addition, even though I wouldn't consider her plus size, AT ALL.) She is a FANTASTIC heroine, who has flaws- sure who doesn't right? But- she also seems strong and independent, especially after she gets to know Adam.

It's the typical insta-love connection. There is a lot of why me? Why did you pick me when you are famous and could have anyone you want? Why me, when you can avoid the drama of dating a movie star? But that's what I LOVED about it.

And the steamy as hell sex scenes are always a must from Jasinda- so we got those in there too. I thought the plot development- was there. It had key elements that I love. Hero is jaded from a bad break-up, but is essentially an honorable man who is looking for love- and just wants to find the one. Heroine has a bad abusive past, that she doesn't want to bring up- and she builds walls, but that
hero is there waiting to knock them down.

I will forever be a Jasinda fan- always. She has a way of making me blush, sigh, cry, laugh, and feel a gamut of emotions when I read her books. I can't wait for more from her, and I know if her writing continues to be as great as it is now- she has a LONG and prosperous career ahead of her!
