Title: Wild Reckless
Author: Ginger Scott
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary, Romance
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.
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.
This book started well. The characters were introduced in a way that I immediately knew who they were and what to expect from them. I liked the darkness and intrigue around Owen and his family, and I liked who Kensington was introduced to be in comparison.
Ginger Scott is really good at writing tension between two physical bodies. She really creates a dynamic between Owen and Kensington without any words spoken. She’s very good at movements and creating a story within the body language alone.
I flash my gaze back to Owen, and now he’s the one looking at the top of the table, his hands no longer wringing, his foot no longer jiggling. His face is just pure emptiness – as if he’s just had the wind knocked out of him – and the way his lip is hanging open and quivering with struggle to breathe lets me know this is the first he’s head of the apple fest.
All in all, this was a great read. I really liked the themes in his story. They were dealt with in a mature manner. Also loved all the emotions. I definitely felt them every step of the way.
