Review Tour - Wicked Restless by Ginger Scott

Join us in celebrating the release of WICKED RESTLESS by Ginger Scott!

Very Mature YA Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to release: October 20, 2015

Andrew Harper grew up in a house marked by tragedy. His older brother Owen did his best to shelter him, but you can only be protected from life’s pain for so long. Eventually, you end up just feeling numb…and isolated.

Loneliness was the one constant in Andrew’s life. Until one girl, met by chance in a high school hallway, changed everything. Emma Burke was a mystery and all that was beautiful in this world, the only air Andrew ever wanted to breathe. She took the lonely away, and filled it with hope and color, and Andrew would do anything to keep her safe, happy and whole.

But sometimes, what feels good and right is what ends up hurting us the most. And when Andrew and Emma are faced with an impossible decision, Andrew is tested to see just how far he’s willing to go for the girl who owns his heart.

Cuts are deep.

Scars are left behind.

And revenge beckons.

When Andrew finally gets his chance, in college, five years after his first love broke him completely, he finds out old feelings don’t really disappear just because you say you hate someone. The more he tries to avenge all that he believes he lost, the more he uncovers the real story of what happened years before.

Love is wicked. But a restless heart is never satisfied beating on its own. Can Andrew and Emma make it right before it's too late, or will the ties that bind them now destroy their only chance at a future?

My 5 Star Review 

We first met Andrew Harper in Wild Reckless, he is Owen’s younger brother. These books are standalones and you don’t have to have read Wild Reckless to enjoy Wicked Restless, but I do think you will have a better understanding of Andrew and his family if you do.

Andrew Harper’s life has never been a picnic, but he is sixteen now and things have gotten better. Regardless, his family still has a negative reputation. Andrew isn’t the star basketball player like Owen, but he is academically gifted and in an accelerated program where he takes college course work at the community college. He doesn’t normally go to the actual high school, but is there for P.E. when he meets Emma.

Emma just moved to town when she meets Andrew, it doesn’t take long for her to hear the rumors about the Harpers, but she doesn’t listen to them. Emma decides to form her own opinion of Andrew and falls for him quickly.

I love young Andrew and Emma, they are cute, sweet and I enjoyed their story. Circumstances separate Emma and Andrew and the story picks back up 5 years later. From here is where I really fell in love with the story and couldn’t put it down. I was anxious and excited to see what happened next.

When Andrew and Emma meet back up five years later in college they are not the same people. They have both endured so many things and have completely misconstrued opinions of each other and the events from their past. They have to decide if they can trust each other again, if things are worth rebuilding and if the can ultimately forgive and move forward.

This story is definitely one of my favorites of Ginger’s stories. I felt the story from early on, but fell completely in love with part two. I love the selflessness in a character, but when I learned just what Andrew’s sacrifice meant I was in tears. These two together isn’t always easy, but I loved how they developed a connection early on and never truly let go. I went into this story thinking it was more YA and was happy to find it was very mature and grown up. Ginger delivered on every level with Wicked Restless, if you are fan of college romances and second chance love you will love this one!
