Sigh.... Ok, I am think I am ruined from falling in love with another book boyfriend. Nothing compares to Kellan, and once again, he proves to be nothing short of amazing! Recklesswas nothing short of AMAZING!!
Normally, when I am excited about a book or thoroughly engrossed in one, I devour it quickly and poof! It's over. For Reckless, I took my time. I savored it. I read paragraphs and sentences over and over again just to make sure I didn't miss a thing. (and to go back and instantly re-live it) I even put it down for a few hours to process and digest what I read. I didn't want it to end! But, when it did, it ended absolutely perfectly!!!
Throughout the entire book, I found myself reading with a silly grin on my face, laughing out loud and tears in my eyes. I was enjoying the ride and falling in love with the characters all over again. I even have a new found love for Griffin! Who would have thought??? Obviously, its not on the same caliber as my love for Kellan, but feeling anything other disgust for Griffin is huge!
I went through and highlighted so many incredible quotes and scenes. But, decided not use any in this review. I would hate to take away the surprise and thrill of some of the unexpected and wonderful moments in the story. I won't mention the storyline either. I know synopses and blurbs are posted everywhere online, but I don't want say anything and accidentally give anything away. It's just one of those books you can read with just hearing the words...."a fantastic story" or "a five star read"! Of course, it being the third and final book in the trilogy you have to read it not matter what is said. I will say, the plot was not at all what I was expecting, which is not a bad thing! It gave me everything I wanted and surprised me with so much more.
I am sad that's over and that I need to move on. Ok, I will never completely move on, but I will find another story and another character to obsess over to some degree. One good thing is, when I feel I'm in a reading slump or need a Kellan fix, I have three wonderful books to re-read! And I guarantee, that will happen many many times!
For this book, it gets the ULTIMATE book boyfriend rating:
