The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia – Review & Giveaway



Winner announced on Rafflecopter widget below!

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of receiving an advance reader copy of Kami Garcia’s new contemporary romance, The Lovely Reckless. You can purchase your copy HERE over at Amazon. Read a synopsis below.

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 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, 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?

The Lovely Reckless was a perfect blend of action and romance.  Several moments had me on the edge of my seat, and with only a few chapters in, I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. I would recommend to fellow TVD readers and fans to check it out. Frankie reminds me a little of Elena, in the sense they both are dealing with the loss of loved ones. And Frankie’s attraction to Marco, a resident bad boy, is comparable to the dynamic between Elena and Damon.

Can’t wait to check it out? Well good news! I also have an advance reader copy for giveaway below! Just log into the Rafflecopter widget below! Leave a blog post comment, then click “I commented” within the widget to open up more ways to enter!
