We were supposed to be best friends
But turned out to be worst enemies…
They say revenge is a dish best served cold
I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart was completely iced.
I took her first kiss.
She took the only thing I loved.
I was poor.
She was rich.
The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.
Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.
Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.
Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.
There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.
Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.
Everyone loves a good old unapologetic punk.
But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.
The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.
In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.
Four years ago, he asked me to save all my firsts for him.
Now he lives across the hall, and I want nothing more than to be his last everything.
His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.
Now? Now he is making me pay.

Pretty Reckless is Pretty Amazing.
If you have been following the sinners of Saint series you will discover that the characters in this book are the children of the Hotholes, this really excites me, I loved that series, if you haven't read it, its a must read and this being book one in a new series, it also feels like round two or something, another addition of excitement, angst, drama and hotness, I can't wait to read it all.
Daria is the daughter of Melody and Jaime. Jaime was one of the boys from the sinners of Saint series who slept with his teacher from All Saint's High, that teacher is Daria's mother.
The Angst-meter is off the charts with this one, I loved Pretty Reckless it was compelling and I was gripped onto it throughout not wanting to put it down. I have read some angsty college or young adult romances before but this was, whoa, fabulously angsty.
L.J Shen doesn't follow the norm, I never expect her to go with the flow, I have read all of her books and I still don't know what I am going to get this time and I love that about her writing. L.J Shen is an author that stands out from the rest, not only in her flawless writing but with her plots, the characters and the whole feel of everything she has written as though she knows exactly what the reader wants and that it to have their interest piqued throughout.
I have read many romance books were there are teenagers in a college environment and without fail there is always that bitchy girl, the spoiled princess, the head cheerleader who you just love to hate but what a refreshing turnaround by L.J Shen when the lead character, a character you are normally on the same side as and are supposed to like is actually the ice princess herself, the bitchy cheerleader, the girl with more stinging comebacks on her tongue than a viper and oh how I loved being in the front row seat on her journey, especially when she meets Penn at a young age for her first kiss then later on as an even more bratty teen and do you know what? despite the fact I would normally despise these sort of characters, I bloody loved them.
A young love to teenage love story, High school rivals, friends to lovers. enemies to lovers, secrets and truths, confessions and forgiveness, hate and love, parenting issues, family issues in a nut shell Pretty Reckless pretty much had it all going on.
This is one of those books were you just have to read it, I can't go into spoilers, in fact I wouldn't know were to start I have so many favorite moments in this book.
There's no cheating though, god forbid if there was cheating as well that would make it fall off the radar for angst, but I will say this, if you love teenage drama's, complex and interesting characters and a good plot then pick it up it's so worth it.
Also, Check out Defy if you haven't read it, Melody and Jaime's story its a novella and can be read as a standalone.
