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. 


Kensi has just been forced to move from her high school in her senior year.  A school that used to promote her talent as a piano player, but now in this much smaller school and music program she is forced to make a whole new set of friends and enemies.  It is during her first day of unpacking that Kensi has the unpleasant pleasure of meeting Owen Harper.  Her new neighbor with a bad reputation.  As much as Kensi knows that he is bad news she can’t help herself and finds herself drawn to him.  But, it isn’t until after a horrible family revelation that really pushes Owen and Kensi together.  Can both of them overcome the disappointments in their lives to grab what is in front of them or will they be forced to consider each other yet another disappointment in their lives?

From page one I was grabbed and forced to turn each emotionally charged page.  A YA novel like Wild Reckless brings us right back to high school and your first love.  Kensi and Owen really grow throughout the book.  You can almost see the characters mature in both their decisions and their emotions.  This is definitely seen in the character of Owen who is so much more than what you initially think.  I think that is one of the best parts of this book.  You almost anticipate him to let you down at any moment, but when all is said and done Owen is actually one of the best characters.  The back stories on both Kensi and Owen were very well done.  Though each had terrible things happen they both almost live parallel lives before, during and after their traumatic events.  The joining of these two through their coping was a great connecting point especially when on the surface it doesn’t appear that they would have anything in common.  Overall, the writing is terrific and the characters are memorable.  If you want to be touched and have a reminiscent journey back to high school you will definitely want to pick up Wild Reckless.
