I received this book for free from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
“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.
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.
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.
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!
