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 Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
I love Ginger Scott's books. Seriously, she is one of my favourite authors and she could write anything and I think I'd love it, because the lady has a gift with words.
That being said, I sadly didn't love Wicked Restless. I wanted to, I really really did, but I couldn't.
The book started off so strong; Andrew stole my heart and I loved him above any of her fantastic characters... Then he ruined it. Circumstances ruined it. Everything just went "poof" and the magic that had begun to build just fizzled and sputtered and never fully ignited.
It could have been how angry and bitter Andrew was. It could have been because Emma was a bit less likeable, and weaker, than Gingers usual females... But in all honesty, I think it was because there was too much going on! Seriously, think of every something that you find in NA books - fighters, brainiacs, bad boys, sports, death, illness, corruption, sacrifice, betrayal - and it was in here and it was just too much. The wonderful realism that is intrinsic to this author was missing and I couldn't let it go.
People will love this book, I don't doubt it for a second - 'cause as I've already said, Ginger is a beautiful writer - but for me, it was good, not great, not fangirly wonderful, but I did like it. My expectations were just crazy high...
