This 370 page book will have you racing to get to the next page. The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia is an easy reading book you won’t want to put down.

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. 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 in the Downs. She transfers to a public school in the Downs, where fistfights in the halls don’t faze anyone and illegal street racing is more popular than football.

Marco Leone is the fastest street racer in the Downs. Tough, and sexy, 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, and go against everything her dad has taught her?

“This book is amazing and one of the best I have read in awhile,” Kirsten said. “I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a romance, and an edge of your seat novel,” Kirsten said.
