The Lovely Reckless
By Kami Garcia
Release Date: October 4, 2016I’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?
Two Words: Street racer. I am in love with the Fast and Furious movies and any books that deal with racers just call my name. This one sounds SO GOOD. Marco sounds like such an awesome love interest for Frankie and Frankie's new life does not sound like a walk in the park. Things should get very interesting! I can't wait to watch Frankie and Marco fall for each other and learn about each others' secrets!
