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?


I loved this story. It was heart aching, suspenseful. A story that you won’t be able to put down, not until you reach the ending. From first page until last, I was on the edge of my seat, wanting to see what would happen next. I think that out of entire book, the ending was the most intense moment in the entire book. While I was reading, my heart was pounding and there was only one question that was on my mind, What’s going to happen? Will she be able to escape? I’m glad that she remembered who killed her boyfriend, but at the same time I was scared for her, having do what she didn’t want to, knowing what would happen if she didn’t. Frankie was smart and I was glad that she came up with plan, in a way an escape plan. I was scared for her though. Frankie, despite what she had to go through, she had courage and it also told me how much she loved Marco. I’m kind curious of what happened to her after, to both her and Marco.

I loved the relationship between Marco and Frankie, and I loved how hard Frankie tried to fight for it. That told so much, I could tell how much she loved him. They had unusual relationship, and I could see that there was attraction between the two of them from beginning. I saw that Frankie was attracted to him right away, even if she tried to deny it at first. I believe the reason that she tried to deny it is because of her boyfriend’s death, even if it has been few months she was still grieving his death. I can’t even imagine having watch your boyfriend getting beaten to death. She’s stronger that me, I don’t think that I would been able to handle it, to move past it. Not the way that she is. I know that Marco played a big part of that. I feel that she didn’t plan falling for him, and the more time that the two of them spend together, harder it was for to not fall for him. Once they kissed, I knew that both of them were in trouble after that. I hated how her father wouldn’t let her see him, I understand why he did but did not like how he did it. I loved fact that not once did Frankie give up. She even stop seeing him just so that her father would release him. If that’s not love that I am not sure what is. I loved the two of them together. I think in a way, both of them helped each other.

I read KAMI GARCIA before, when she wrote Beautiful Creatures series with MARGARET STOHL and I loved her them and when I came across the book, I knew that I had to read it. THE LOVELY RECKLESS was a beautiful novel about love, friendship, grief. I couldn’t get enough of this story. I’m still thinking about it. KAMI GARCIA hooked me into it, to the point that it was almost impossible for me to put it down. I can’t wait to see what adventures are in store for me. A must read. A story that deserves all the stars.

It’s magical.
