‘Are you going to ask me in?’ he replied, a cheeky smile forming on the edges of his lips. Then he leaned towards me conspiratorially. ‘We aren’t strangers, you know.’

Milly Benton wants it all to go away. Wants to flip the bird to the nightmares and her parent’s grief and the incessant questions about when she’s going to make something of herself.

But when her parents exile her to the country, Milly has to cope with her annoyingly helpful aunt and three cousins instead. Bitter at the hand she’s been dealt, Milly has stopped dreaming of a future.

In steps Jerome with his tormented blue eyes. Familiar from her childhood and as broken as she. They need each other. But how can they forget?

My Thoughts:
"Things change. People change."
Milly has a hard time coping with her brothers dead and has resorted to reckless and at times dangerous behavior. When her parents has had enough they pretty much send her to exile, to go from the beaches to farmland county to live with her aunt. Her mother made it clear that she is not to be back until she fixed herself. Life in the country is not what she expected, and find that she enjoys it more than she thought, then she accidentally bumps into a guy from her past. Theres an attraction they both have towards each other, but there is also a secret that can separate them. Will they last through the big secret?
"Is it possible that the person who caused you pain, could be the only one able to bring you out of it?"
This book is filled with heartbreak, guilt and bad decisions. This book was fun and fast paced. I liked all the characters even if Milly seemed to annoy me a lot throughout the book. I liked that towards the ended we get the POV of Jerome. I liked that Milly was learned to grow up and get past her brothers death. This book was well written and very enjoyable.

Overall this book is about letting go the past and learning to go on. 4 of 5 Stars!

Danielle Weiler loves all things written. She has her best story ideas in the middle of the night when there’s no chance to remember them the next day. Her first YA novel, Friendship on Fire, was published in 2011. Reckless is Danielle’s first novel for new adults. She has lived and taught high school in New South Wales and Victoria but prefers the sunny weather in Perth. She is kept company by her husband, son and naughty cat, Ginger.
