Reckless Longing

Reckless Longing (Reckless #1)
by: Gina Robinson
Reckless Longing (Reckless, #1)
Ellie Martin hates her beautiful, man-crazy mother. Her mother’s wild and wanton behavior has left Ellie with a deep longing. To escape. To belong. To know who her real dad is. To really be loved. Her mother finally crosses a line that sends Ellie running, escaping to college with one, focused goal–to find and confront her bio dad, who doesn’t even know she exists. Then she meets Logan. Hot, charming, and troubled. He turns her world upside down and puts all her plans in jeopardy.

Logan Walker is hiding a shameful and painful secret. One that nearly cost him everything. When he meets the beautiful and mysterious Ellie at a Week of Welcome event, something inside him awakens and he finds himself drawn to her.

But the attraction they both feel for each other is as delicate as the web of secrets they each hide behind. And as the truths are revealed, their reckless longing may not survive the fallout.

My Review:

So, one thing I can say about this book is that it is different. What I really loved about this book is that it kept me guessing throughout the entire book. I kept thinking, this is it. He's going to figure out why she looks familiar. Or this is it, she's gonna tell him. Really, the whole book I kept thinking that. And then, we get to the end and the results are in and .......... You ARE or ARE NOT the father? Dang it. The book ends. All that working up to it and then you left me hanging. Ugh. Oh well, other than the cliffie, I really liked the book. I am a total sucker for any book that is based on college love. Maybe it's my inability to grow up? Peter Pan-college age syndrome? Who knows?

A friend of mine wrote this and I totally agree. We need Logan's POV. We need to know what is going on his his mind and what he is doing when he is away. It would totally help up connect with Logan a little better. For whatever reason, that is where I am struggling.

I loved the idea of this book and I cannot wait to get the next book. There are so many unanswered questions that my head is spinning. Please, Gina. Put us out of our misery and get that next book out!!
