Book: Pretty Reckless | Author: L.J. Shen | Genre: New Adult Fiction, Romance | Rating 4.5/5
Penn… BABY. I am on a roll with these romance books and I am loving every second of it. I love a romance with a good and saucy plot and this one hit the mark. All you have to tell me is this is a hate to love romance and I am already 75% sold on it.
This book follows two seniors in HS, Daria and Penn (both 18). They of course hate each other while fighting deep rooted sexual tension. I love when an author knows how to write about tension and mature fighting. Does that make sense?? Like I hate when I read a book and the fighting is just so juvenile and corny. Like this was cut throat and sophisticated choice of words.
Here is my reasoning for not giving it the extra “0.5.” This book had such a strong plot that it could have easily been slowed down and made more in depth and carried on into at least one more book. I feel like at the end they just crammed so much into the end and it left me feeling scrambled wanting to scream, WAIT A MINUTE L.J.!!! I don’t ever want to knock any writer’s style but I always get bummed when I see an author choose to instead make a part 2 to a book that was amazing and instead make a “book 2” from another character’s romance story. Like that’s great and all but I needed more from Penn and Daria, sorry not sorry! I just feel like the entire book I was on the edge of my seat wanting to see them healthy and together and we got like 2 pages of happiness that spanned over several years? Like I needed more, Penn and Daria deserved MORE.
Anyway, rant over but I loved this book! I loved it so much that I wanted more! Read this, don’t read this whatevvverrrr. But I am still heart eyes over it.
xoxo, (love u Penn)
Let’s get a few things straight. No beating around anyone’s bush –> straight to the factttsss. This blog will only consist of posts that I will immediately regret after posting due to the fact that I have no business having any type of opinion on absolutely anything.. Also if you are hoping to read some genius interpretation of some of the finest literature please do both of us a favor and just block me, or whatever you do on WordPress to completely erase the risk of you reading my trash reviews that will make you instantly hate me and want to tell me why.
Also if you haven’t noticed…. I am not a writer, and I usually never reread anything. (Or am I just that bad at English that I can’t form a correct sentence?) So if bad punctuation and incorrect use of words drives you crazy please join the people who already hate me because I am a disgrace to book bloggers everywhere.
This is my little oasis where I can drink my wine, probably get a little too tipsy and post my reviews about the books that I am usually too embarrassed to openly say I am reading. (Why do I still love young teen love, gross)
Okay now if you are a visual person and want to know what kind of blog this is. Picture a trashcan on fire. No further explanation needed.
