Review - WILD RECKLESS by Ginger Scott

by Ginger Scott

4.5 of 5 Stars

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. 

Kensington is the new girl in this small town having moved from Chicago. She is feeling sorry for herself, missing the life she lived with her friends and her music. She spends to much time alone as her parents work long late hours. When she starts to embrace her new life and find new friends, life takes another unexpected turn. What seems to be able to help her through her feelings is the Bad Boy next door. Even with all the warnings from her new friends, there is just something that draws her to Owen.

Owen has been deemed the Bad Boy of Town, guilty without a chance to defend himself. What most people don't know about Owen is that he is partially responsible for holding what is left of his family together. He works to help pay the bills, he goes above and beyond to make sure Andrew gets his schooling, and many more honorable things. He was not happy when Kensi moved in next door. Trying to push her away like everyone else who didn't give him the time of day and deemed him an outcast. Kensi wasn't so easy to push away though, she fought him back and pushed in back in the same manor.

Slowly a friendship starts to form and they are their for each other to help with their tragedies. Time spend soon builds that relationship.

This book will make you range through a tonne of different emotions, some not so happy or cheerful. But nonetheless you will find yourself flipping pages to find out what happens next. Will things work out for these two teens? I am sure hoping that there might be some more to follow of Kensi and Owen in the future. This is my first Ginger Scott read but I will certainly be going back to some of her previous work for a read when I have some extra time.
