About this ebook

Book One of the Reckless Series 
A Contemporary New Adult College Romance 

Ellie and Logan's love story begins one hot August night… 


My mom betrayed me in the worst way possible. I can't forgive her, but I can outwit her. I'm going to unravel the family secret she's been keeping from me my whole 
life. So I'm going to college across the state from her, to the place that has the answers. I hope. But I have to be careful or I'll blow everything. I can't tell anyone what I'm doing. 

I didn't mean to fall in love. I can't afford to give my heart away or open up to anyone, least of all charming, rich, former bad boy baseball star Logan Walker. But he looked so adorable sitting there nursing a black eye the night I met him at my very first campus event. The way he held my hand made me flush in the suffocating heat of August and feel really beautiful for the first time in so long I can't remember. My scar didn't even hurt. 

But Logan's moods are mercurial. He's keeping secrets of his own that are too dark to share, even with me. We agree to be just friends. But our hearts and bodies have 
minds of their own. Before I know it, I'm in too deep with him and the answer to the family secret I came to campus to find may be the thing that tears us apart. 

This is a contemporary romance with mature themes, language, and situations. Readers should be over 17!

I would highly recommend this book especially for people who are doing family genealogy and you like some intrigue mixed in with romance and discovery. Gina takes her character through periods of anger, disbelief, sadness, being unsure of herself, being the best she can be and letting the "cards" fall where they lay. The character also can't wait to get away from her mother, whom she doesn't get along with and can't stand. To say anything more would take away from your enjoyment of reading this book. The book is extremely well written and I could hardly wait to see how it was going to end up. The book is going to be a series and I'm looking forward to the books following it. I would high advise becoming a member of BookBub. You can get many books to read for low prices from free books and/or free samples of books to $ .99 - $5.99 range. You can get e-books or you can order a box set of some books sent to your house. Just Google BookBub and you'll have selections you can make everyday and can choose the types of books you prefer reading.
