About the Book:
Kensington Worth had a vision for her senior year. It involved her best friends, her posh private school in downtown Chicago and time alone with her piano until her audition was perfected, a guaranteed ticket into the best music programs in the world.Instead, a nightmare took over.It didn’t happen all at once, but her life unraveled quickly—a tiny thread that evil somehow kept pulling until everything precious was taken from her. She was suddenly living miles away from her old life, trapped in an existence she didn’t choose—one determined to destroy her from the inside, leaving only hate and anger behind. It didn’t help that her neighbor, the one whose eyes held danger, was enjoying every second of her fall.
Owen Harper was trouble, his heart wild and his past the kind that’s spoken about in whispers. And somehow, his path was always intertwined with Kensington’s, every interaction crushing her, ruining her hope for any future better than her now. Sometimes, though, what everyone warns is trouble, is exactly what the heart needs. Owen Harper was consumed with darkness, and it held onto his soul for years. When Kensington looked at him, she saw a boy who’d gotten good at taking others down when they threatened his carefully balanced life. But the more she looked, the more she saw other things too—good things…things to admire.
Things…to love. Things that made her want to be reckless.
And those things…they were the scariest of all.
Ana will put Wild Reckless on her Top Shelf!!!!!!!
*5 when I finished this book I wanted to start it all over again stars*
I loved everything about this book…from the cover, to the characters, to the storyline, to the beautiful romance…absolutely everything was perfect here!! I can’t recommend this book enough!
It brought the feels on every page – from uplifting joy to heart-wrenching sadness – this book had it all. I fell in love with Owen and Kensi and their struggles and realized right away that this isn’t just a YA romance. This is a story about family, about love, about heartbreak and about not judging a book by it’s cover. It’s about tolerance and empathy and the everyday struggle to live the best life you can! This book has burrowed itself into that tiny space I hold in my heart for amazing stories like Sea of Tranquility and Making Faces…it’s just that good!!
Let’s talk about Owen first. OoooMmmmGggg…my heart!! He’s been hurt so much throughout his life and so many people misunderstand and judge him unfairly. He’s forced to deal with so much more than anyone his age should have to and yet he embraces it as best he can. Owen’s family is dysfunctional and places a great burden on his shoulders. He hides behind a self-built wall because he can’t afford to be hurt any more than he has been already. But his heart is so big. He’s caring and understanding and kind. And, even though it takes some digging to find those traits, once we do, we know we’ve found the true Owen. Kensi’s been forced to move to a place where she has no friends but her troubles are just beginning. So much more is going on in her family than she realizes and, when she finds out the truth, she’s forced to reevaluate everything she though was true. She’s forced to re-think her future.
The road for these two is not easy, and their relationship is not smooth, but it is so worth traveling this tough road with them! Their love is real – sometimes beautiful, sometimes heartbreaking, but always strong. Kensi’s belief in Owen is unwavering. Owen is determined to protect Kensi at all costs. Because of this, they struggle…but they also benefit and grow and find happiness. Their chemistry is off the charts and, because it’s a mature YA there’s not so much of the “fade to black” we’re all used to. I rooted for these two from the very beginning and I think you will too!
I’m hoping that by now you’re beginning to grasp my love for this book! So…do yourself a favor…go get it right now and start reading it immediately! Don’t wait even a minute! Ginger Scott’s writing is engaging and beautiful. She helps you remember that time in your life where everything, including falling in love, was overwhelming. But, her words enhance the story, they don’t weigh it down. She has become a no questions asked on-click author for me and I think you’ll love her too!! So, go now…and if you need me to hold your hand as you read, just let me know!!
