The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia (author of the best-selling Beautiful Creatures series) is a fast-paced novel. I found it to be a cross between Twilight, Romeo and Juliet, and the Fast and the Furious; it is just as cheesy as all three but in the best way.
The book is about Frankie, a teenage girl who is suffering from PTSD after witnessing the violent death of her boyfriend outside of a club. Frankie can’t remember key details from that night which could find her boyfriend’s killer which sends her into a spiral which results in a drunk driving arrest. Her mother, fed up with her antics, sends her to live with her undercover cop father in the bad part of town. Cue in Marco Leone, the bad boy street racer at Frankie’s new school who won’t stop pursuing Frankie and introduces her to a dangerous world of street racing.
This book, however cheesy it was, kept me smiling and intrigued for the entire book- I could not put it down! If you are looking for an exciting romance then this book is perfect for you!
