Waiting on Wednesday: The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia

Here is where I share with you my anticipation for upcoming books! Breaking the Spine has introduced me to this and I am super excited to get to participate. Please feel free to comment what books you are looking forward to as well!!

Synopsis: 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?

I haven't read a Kami Garcia book since Beautiful Creatures, nor have I read a Kami Garcia book where she writes it by herself, so I am excited to be interested in this book. It has been dubbed as Fast and Furious meets YA, and I am ready for it. From the synopsis, this book sounds exhilarating and adrenaline-infused with high stakes and deep love, and I need it. Lately I've been in the mood for a romance driven, contemporary novel with relatable themes, and I feel like this could be it. I'm diggin the bad boy vibe that's given off in the synopsis, so of course I'm a little more *grabby hands* than usual.

The Lovely Reckless comes out October 4th, 2016!!
