Waiting on Wednesday: The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

The Lovely Reckless

     I’ve become an expert at avoiding things that could hurt me—which means I will figure out how to stay away from Marco Leone.
     Seventeen-year-old Frankie Devereux would do anything to forget the past. Haunted by the memory of her boyfriend’s death, she lives her life by one dangerous rule: Nothing matters. At least, that’s what Frankie tells herself after a reckless mistake forces her to leave her privileged life in the Heights to move in with her dad—an undercover cop. She transfers to a public high school in the Downs, where fistfights don’t faze anyone and illegal street racing is more popular than football.
     Marco Leone is the fastest street racer in the Downs. Tough, sexy, and hypnotic, he makes it impossible for Frankie to ignore him—and how he makes her feel. But the risks Marco takes for his family could have devastating consequences for them both. When Frankie discovers his secret, she has to make a choice. Will she let the pain of the past determine her future? Or will she risk what little she has left to follow her heart?

Why I'm Waiting: Although I didn't have the best experience when meeting Kami last year, I'm still super excited for this book! I've already seen a couple "reviews" from bloggers I love say that it was really good and the leading dude is hot. As someone that adores contemporary romances, what more could I ask for? And last but not least, it''s been compared to some other gritty romances that I LOVED, so I really hope this lives up to the hype! 

What will you be waiting on this week?
Will you be waiting on this with me?
