I’ve become an expert at avoiding things that could hurt me—which means I will figure out how to stay away from Marco Leone.
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 a public high school in the Downs, where fistfights 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” by Kami Garcia is amazing.
I love this book to death.
I am always down for a good book about girls, boys, and cars. These characters stole my heart.
Frankie Devereux royally screwed up and now she has to leave her rich life behind to go live with her undercover cop dad. Something tragic happened to Frankie…her boyfriend died. RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER. I would be a little messed up too. Now Frankie is trying to pick up the pieces of her life.
I was totally not ready for this story! IN A GOOD WAY. “The Lovely Reckless” is amazing. I think it is a real gem. I really like this story and I really like these characters.
Cars and Romance. Can it get any better?
These character hooked me right away. Their lives are so fascinating and i felt like I knew each of them right away. how could you not be invested?
Frankie and Marcos relationship escalated so fast. They went from zero to sixty in seconds. Normally, I am not a fan, but it worked for this book. I was routing for these characters!
This is my first Kami Garcia book and I am so glad that I started with this one. the writing is so good.
It is all so perfect.
I got to meet Kami Garcia on tour and it was awesome hearing the behind the scenes detail. Garcia incorporated some of her own past in this book and I think it is great. I do hope you all love this book as much as I do.
