Review: Pretty Reckless by LJ Shen

This is one of my favorite books and one of the books that got me hooked on romance novels. Daria Followhill is smart, beautiful, rich and loved but she’s insecure and flawed, just like everyone else. Penn Scully sees he real her and he’s equally enthralled and disgusted by this beautiful creature. They’re natural enemies from the first time they meet, but they don’t even know it. The banter between these two is the absolute best, honestly one of my favorite things in any book ever.

There are so many complications in their lives besides the usual teen issues and they both have some very adult problems. They’re oil and water but they love to hate one another and form an unlikely but complicated alliance. This is a story that will give you all the feels and have you waiting until the last pages to find out how things really end.

Penn
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.

Daria
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.
