Pretty Reckless (All Saints High #1) by L.J. Shen
From USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author L.J. Shen comes an intense, high school enemies-to-lovers romance with a twist.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart was completely iced.
I took her first kiss.
She took the only thing I loved.
I was poor.
She was rich.
The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.
Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.
Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.
Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.
There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.
Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.
Everyone loves a good old unapologetic punk.
But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.
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.
Now he lives across the hall, and I want nothing more than to be his last everything.
His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.
Now? Now he is making me pay.

I have to admit that I have read Pretty Reckless before reading the Sinner of Saint series. As some of you might find out now, All Saints High Series is a spin-off where the second generation of All Saints tell their story.
On another note, OMG, what a day I had reading this one! I just can’t wait to read Broken Knight and before it comes out, I’m gonna’ tear the Sinner of Saint series.
Daria Followhill is the daughter of Jamie and Melody Followhill. She is the queen of All Saints High School, and I mean The queen. She meets Penn when she’s 14 years old.
After 4 years when everything when downhill, they meet again, and her life turn for the worst. During this time, they rekindle a flame that wished to be forgotten.
I can’t help but think that Daria made some stupid and awful mistakes, but eventually you’ll reason with her. I still think she got of the hook a bit too easily. That being said, I love her family, especially Jamie!
After reading Pretty Reckless I want to read Jamie’s story! Stat!
This kind of readings make my heart heavy, but I know it’s full of angst, especially for young love. Penn has been through a lot, but he is worthy of his place in their world! I love how people have their loyalties, even at this young age, where you shape your future and make you way between revenge and fighting for your feelings.
As a conclusion, I totally recommend this one, but maybe try and read the first series before, since it’s complete and but the time you finish it, maybe Broken Knight is out as well.
