Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen – Review

Daria Followhill, on the outside she has it all. The perfect family, queen bee status at her school, and more. Penn Scully, the boy from the other side of the tracks, with a crappy family and an even crappier upbringing. When the two first meet, they are drawn to each other. They don’t realize who the other is, but one thing is for sure, what the two of them do on that day changes the course for them forever. Fast forward a few years and the two are see each other again, but under much different and circumstances that are out of their control. It’s clear the two are drawn to each other, but it’s also clear that they don’t want to be. Penn feels like Daria ruined his life, and now he is ready to make her life miserable. As their story unfolds, the two must make tough decisions, and at the end of the day can they forgive each other for the damage that has been done?

Ever since L.J. announced that she was going to be writing about the ‘Totholes’ I have been impatiently waiting for the first book to release. I absolutely loved the four ‘Hotholes’ so I knew there was no question that these books would be amazing. I have to say, that the first book for the ‘Totholes’ did not disappoint. I needed this book like I needed my next breath. I built it up so much in my head, and L.J. smashed every thought I had. The way that she writes each of her books evokes so much emotion from the reader. The emotions that I felt during this book crazy, and I laughed out loud and there were some parts that even had me shedding a few tears. The chemistry between Daria and Penn was out of this world and left me begging for more. I also appreciate that we got to check in with the original four, I’m waiting for the next books in the hopes that we get even more glimpses of the originals! Thank you L.J. for giving us the ‘Totholes’, you truly are one of the best!
