The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia
Publication: October 4th 2016 by Imprint
I’ve become an expert at avoiding things that could hurt me—which means I will figure out how to stay away from Marco Leone.
Seventeen-year-old Frankie Devereux would do anything to forget the past. Haunted by the memory of her boyfriend’s death, she lives her life by one dangerous rule: Nothing matters. At least, that’s what Frankie tells herself after a reckless mistake forces her to leave her privileged life in the Heights to move in with her dad—an undercover cop. She transfers to a public high school in the Downs, where fistfights don’t faze anyone and illegal street racing is more popular than football.
Marco Leone is the fastest street racer in the Downs. Tough, sexy, and hypnotic, he makes it impossible for Frankie to ignore him—and how he makes her feel. But the risks Marco takes for his family could have devastating consequences for them both. When Frankie discovers his secret, she has to make a choice. Will she let the pain of the past determine her future? Or will she risk what little she has left to follow her heart?
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started The Lovely Reckless but it was 10x better than I ever could have expected. I loved this book so much.
The Lovely Reckless isn’t a book that I would normally pick up but I’m kind of obsessed with it.
The plot is so much fun and entertaining. The writing is flawless and the characters are so well written. I read the whole book in just two sittings. It has some insta-love and even though I’m not a fan of insta-love, I didn’t think it was a big deal.
Overall, The Lovely Reckless is such a fun, addicting read. I really enjoyed it and I can definitely see myself rereading.
