Ginger Scott, you have a new fan-girl in me! Wild Reckless was an audio book I picked up on a whim, and it completely overtook my life for two days. I couldn’t ‘read’, because all I wanted to do was listen to this story. Last year, I read a book by Ms Scott called The Hard Count and it blew me away. After reading this, I have to say Wild Reckless is by far my favorite Scott book. And I feel like I need to binge all of her other audio books asap!

Kensington Worth has just moved at the start of her senior year. A new school, and a totally different surrounding from her life in the city. Kensi is a pianist, and a very talented one at that. Music as always been her life. But after some personal things happen, her life is turned upside down.


Then there is Owen Harper, her neighbor. Everyone in town knows about the Harper family. Owen is nothing but trouble they say. And at first, Kensi would agree with that wholeheartedly. But then she gets to know Owen. See the real Owen. Owen’s life is not easy, and it never has been. He carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. His life is nothing like others think it is.
“I love you, but I will suffocate you. Drown you. Loving me...it will kill you.”

“I think I need you to survive. I think I need you to love me, because that’s literally all I’ve got.”

Kensi and Owen. Sigh. Their relationship was so tumultuous at first. Everything between them started to change as Owen let Kensi in little by little. Let her see the real him. I loved Owen Harper so much. I went from him pissing me off, to me completely adoring him in a matter of chapters. My heart ached for him. No one his age should have to handle what he handles, go through what he’s been through. I admired his strength. I adored Kensi, too. They were both much older than their years. And even though everything about them being together was hard and didn’t always make sense, all I wanted was for them to be together. For Owen to have something good in his life.

Wild Reckless was not a light read. In fact, I would call it a very heavy, mature YA read. It had a lot of hard to read topics… suicide, mental illness, addiction, cheating, etc. There were moments I was reading and my heart was just shredded. But it also showed just how strong love is. How someone loving you that much and being that devoted to you can truly overcome any obstacle.

This book was amazing. Truly incredible. It was not an easy read, but it was a powerful one. I loved it so hard and can’t wait to read the next book in this series, about Owen’s younger brother Andrew! If you’re like me and waited for the longest time to read this book, definitely put it on the top of your TBR.
“I love him.
I want him.
I need him.
I breathe him.”
