Blog Tour, Giveaway & Eliza's Review: Wild Reckless by Ginger Scott

Very Mature YA Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to release: March 17, 2015

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.

What I truly enjoyed most about reading this was how unexpected it was. Firstly, this is the first time I've read anything by Ginger Scott and if all her books are as wonderful as this, she’ll be a great addition to my go to Authors. Secondly, because of it’s Young Adult label, I had my preconceived notions as to what it would “feel” like. What I didn’t account for was the amount of heart it would also have, which is a good thing as it tore mine out in places.

Kensington “Kensi” Worth’s life has been uprooted, her family’s move from the city to a small town is a culture shock for her. What’s more shocking is who she discovers her new neighbour is. Bad boy from her new school and all round trouble maker, Owen Harper. Their relationship starts off on the wrong foot and further declines but even so Kensi is intrigued by him. As events in Kensi’s life turn a downward turn her unlikely support comes in the form of Owen and we see their relationship however conflicting it is, become a solace for them both.

For me the beauty came from Owen and from the reviews I’ve read of this, I’m not alone in thinking this. Ginger created a character who was initially incredibly unlikable and turned him into one the reader has no choice but to respect and admire. He faces the stigma of having the last name Harper and even though he acted out in ways that are both Wild and Reckless, he has a maturity to him that far beyond his teenage years and has a sense of duty that is ingrained in him.

Truth is, Owen Harper shot me through the heart that day he pointed his finger at me and pulled the trigger. I fell for him then, and I’ve been falling every day since. All I wanted was for him to catch me. And he did.

From a greedy readers point of view, I would love to read Andrew's story. Just throwing it out there, Ginger...
