Wild Reckless Book Cover Wild Reckless
Ginger Scott

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.

The only time I’ve seen Owen smile was when he was teasing me-and when he delivered the news that ruined my world.”

I have to start off by saying that I am slightly biased toward this author. I would gladly dig a dirty napkin out of a dumpster if Ginger Scott wrote a story on it. When her stories are released, life as I know it stops until I have consumed every word. Wild Reckless was no different for me.

Kensington’s story is no different than hundreds of teenaged girls trying to find their way through high school. She has a family that has problems just like everyone else. She also has a boy in her in life that she knows she should stay away from but she simply cannot. Owen Harper is the bad boy in town, and also happens to be her new neighbor when she is uprooted from her private school in Chicago and forced to attend a public school in a very rural town. This is actually just the beginning of Kensi’s problems. Her whole world is about to be destroyed and Owen may be the only person that can help her. WR - Teaser 2

Oh where to begin with Owen Harper. The author does a fantastic job of making you not like him, even though you know that in the end you will love him. He comes off as the biggest jerk but you already know that there is a broken little boy inside of him. As much of an asshole that he is in the beginning, he may very well be one of my favorite book boyfriends ever. Even though he is dealing with so much of his own crap, once he decides to let Kensi in, she is everything to him. WR---Teaser-6

Everything about this story is tragic and beautiful at the same time. Ginger Scott has a way of making the simplest things be so full of emotion. A look, the brush of a hand, can take your breath away. And if you have not had the pleasure of reading a first kiss written by this author, I feel truly sorry for you. She is the master of this craft. She also proves that you do not need a handsome billionaire, a rock star or a MMA fighter as your leading man to have a great story. Ginger takes a boy and a girl who are so lost in darkness and allows them to save each other and themselves. WR--Teaser-7

This book is definitely 5 stars. I experienced so many emotions reading this. Anger, frustration, sadness, extreme joy. I laughed, cried and shook my kindle waiting for these two to get their crap together. I honestly am getting a little teary eyed as I am writing this and thinking back on Kensi and Owen’s story.  I can’t recommend this book enough. Read it! Right now!

5 stars and a bottle of  Jack for this one! Enjoy!
