My Review
Reckless is an intense thriller that will have readers on edge until the very end. It's a bit of a slow burn, but the tension that builds continues to do so until it becomes a powder keg ready to explode. 
Izzy and her family move to a new town to start over after a miscarriage. But then she meets Nicky, a student at the school, and things start going downhill fast. The events that play out are crazy and extreme, and it makes you realize that there really are people out there like Nicky. And that's a horrifying thought. 
I found Izzy to be a bit frustrating at times. She annoyed me by continuing to go back and forth with Nicky. Every time she tried to give him up, something would happen and she'd go back to him, even if it was just to tell him to leave her alone. And her carrying on with him just made her as bad as her husband, who was also dealing with his grief by having an affair. They were both in the wrong, but I feel like Izzy was worse in a way. Her husband eventually came clean, and she got mad at him, but then she continued on with Nicky without telling her husband. Hypocrite.
The story itself is a really well-written read, with believable characters and an engaging plot that pulls you in and doesn't let go until that explosive ending. 
4 stars from me!
