This week I am waiting on
The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia
Publication Date: October 4th 2016
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?
Bad boy meets and emotionally closed of girl. Okay, yes this has been done before but I can’t help but love these types of stories. I am all for opposites attract and in most cases those opposites turn out to have a lot more in common than they thought. I cannot wait to meet Marco and Frankie and see how their relationship is explored. I am also hopeful that we’ll see some other dynamics explored as well.
What’s your most anticipated book?
