Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen

I discovered this author a month or so ago and I haven't stopped reading her books since.

This is one of those cases when you should listen to your friends. I didn't and so i missed out on Vicious for like EVER. Well, don't you fret, I am here to tell you to READ EVERYONE LEIGH WRITES. This is the newest book in the Sinners Of Saint world and I highly advise that you go grab those books first. If not, you will regret that and end up doing it anyway. This story follows Daria and Penn. Daria was a doozy. I swear half the book I couldn't tell what I felt about her. Truly. I was a 100% Penn guy and then I kid you not he turned me on my head too. This is a talent of Leigh's because literally every novel of hers i read that is at least ONE character that I don't understand my opinion of. I do have to say this novel took the boundaries that you expect and it completely demolishes them. It throws curves your way that you honestly cannot expect of prepare for and challenges over and over how you feel about how you feel.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you. In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day. Four years ago, he asked me to save all my firsts for him.
