Blog tour and Christie's review: Wicked Restless by Ginger Scott

Join us in celebrating the release of WICKED RESTLESS by Ginger Scott!

Very Mature YA Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to release: October 20, 2015



Andrew Harper grew up in a house marked by tragedy. His older brother Owen did his best to shelter him, but you can only be protected from life’s pain for so long. Eventually, you end up just feeling numb…and isolated.

Loneliness was the one constant in Andrew’s life. Until one girl, met by chance in a high school hallway, changed everything. Emma Burke was a mystery and all that was beautiful in this world, the only air Andrew ever wanted to breathe. She took the lonely away, and filled it with hope and color, and Andrew would do anything to keep her safe, happy and whole.

But sometimes, what feels good and right is what ends up hurting us the most. And when Andrew and Emma are faced with an impossible decision, Andrew is tested to see just how far he’s willing to go for the girl who owns his heart.

Cuts are deep.

Scars are left behind.

And revenge beckons.

When Andrew finally gets his chance, in college, five years after his first love broke him completely, he finds out old feelings don’t really disappear just because you say you hate someone. The more he tries to avenge all that he believes he lost, the more he uncovers the real story of what happened years before.

Love is wicked. But a restless heart is never satisfied beating on its own. Can Andrew and Emma make it right before it's too late, or will the ties that bind them now destroy their only chance at a future?

I'm a huge fan of Ginger Scott and have followed her since her Falling series. She writes wonderful sweet and poignant New Adult, and she proved she can write a darker and more angst filled story with Wild Reckless. I admire this author so much and with every book I see incredible growth and beauty in her writing. This book is no exception. I saw so much depth and emotion in these characters, she had me completely captivated inside the pages from the start. I wasn't always happy with certain characters' actions, but I can honestly say I never had an ounce of boredom for this couple. You will in turn love them, and very possibly hate them, and then hurt inside for the pain they go through.

Emma and Andrew met in high school and their feelings burned as quick as a flash fire. It was all the sweetness of finding first love and the passion that can't be controlled. From the very first converse foot tap, they had me. Emma's quiet, shy attraction and Andrew's nervous and desperate need to get close to her melted my heart. These two teens have already been through more in their young lives than anyone else should at their age. They're burdened with pain and are both very unhappy. Whereas Andrew is judged and pitied by the town for his tragic family history, Emma's misery is a complete mystery. We know from the start that something is very wrong in her life but we're not sure quite what.

A chain of events occur that completely change the course of their lives. One choice, one moment, changes everything. A sacrifice is made, and misunderstandings turn to bitterness and hatred.

This started the stage of the book that I had a really difficult time with. Andrew has turned into someone cold and heartless. Since the last night he saw Emma, he's now in College and not interested in sweet words or sentiment. He's learned the hard way what having a soft heart gets you and he's not leaving himself open ever again.

It's like he was stolen-taken by someone, tortured, and returned half the boy he was-only to grow into a man with holes and broken pieces.

It wasn't his attitude that I had a problem with. In fact, even though I didn't particularly like how he acted, the more I read about the in between years, the more I sympathized with him.

Emma has also been through major changes. She's leading the life she always dreamed of, studying to become the doctor that she's aspired to be her whole life. When they meet again by chance, she's completely shocked and broken up to see Andrew's hatred aimed at her.

And not only does he make his feelings plain, but he's almost gleeful in his plan to get vengeance. This is what bothered me the most. Not only did he knowingly play with an innocent person's emotions and heart, but it continued on to the point where I found it hard to handle.

(view spoiler)

This part of the book but it was just difficult for me. I couldn't help but feel like it all could have been prevented if the two of them would have just communicated with each other about how they feel.

If you love an angst filled, emotional second chance story, this one would definitely be for you. This book put me through an emotional wringer. I was up, down, and sideways. Rooting for these two and wanting to strangle them. I was so completely caught up in this story that I read it on one sitting. It's a difficult story, one with two imperfect, broken people who's love endures through incredible pain.
