Review: Wild Reckless (Harper Boys #1) by Ginger Scott

Title: Wild Reckless
Author: Ginger Scott
My rating: ❤❤❤❤
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: March 17th 2015
Publisher: Ginger Scott - Little Miss Write
Synopsis: 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. (synopsis from Goodreads)

Publication date: September 29th 2015
Publisher: Avon
Synopsis: In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…

Some things you just believe in, even if you've never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It's out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she's got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph's eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick's self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he's knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she's building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can't walk away. Not when she's the only one who's ever made him wish for forever . . . (synopsis from Goodreads)

Keen Cover Friday: Nevermore series by Kelly Creagh

Hosted by Keep Booked
 
I haven't done KCF in ages, but now I'm back! Today, I've picked the Nevermore series by Kelly Creagh. Yeah, I know, it's usually just one book, but I love all three covers so much and I just couldn't pick one, so I thought, why not all of them?

Review: Sweet Liar (Candy #2) by Debra Doxer

*I was provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This did not in any way affect my rating or my review in the slightest. All thoughts expressed in this review is unbiased and my own.*
 
Title: Sweet Liar
Author: Debra Doxer
My rating: 3.7 hearts
Genre: Young Adult, Romance
Publication date: October 20th 2015
Synopsis: Sometimes lies are sweeter than the truth.

Beauty is alluring; it can disguise the ugliness beneath. But scarred beauty is even more potent to a girl who vowed never to let her heart be broken again. It was an easy vow for Candy to keep until she met Jonah, an arrogant boy with a face that would be too perfect if not for the scar that marred the skin beside his Eye.

That imperfect boy earned her trust and won her heart, but the ties that bind people together are fragile, especially when lies are told. Trust is also fragile, and once broken, doesn’t heal like a heart. Trust has to be earned again, and Jonah desperately wants Candy’s trust back.

But Candy has more than Jonah to worry about. Her father is in trouble, and she intends to help him whether he likes it or not. People tell her he’s a bad man, and that may be true, but he’s not all bad. Deep down, she understands his brand of badness because she’s so much like him.

When Candy finally learns the truth, she’ll have to grow up fast, let go of old grievances, and realize that being vulnerable doesn’t make her weak. In fact, opening herself up may be the very thing that makes her whole again. (synopsis from Goodreads)

Swoon Worthy Saturday: Daemon from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Hosted by Stay Bookish
 
My pick for SWS this week is Daemon from the Lux. Since Oblivion will be released soon, I decided to start re-reading the series, and was reminded how much I love the characters, especially Daemon. He is a bit of a jerk towards Katy in Obsidian but I forgave him for that, because, honestly, who can stay mad at him?
