When her mother is sleeping with the man she loves, what’s a girl to do?
Francesca is weeks away from high school graduation and the hope of escaping her self-centered, grasping family – her trashy mother and hustling twin brother. While her crush on their older neighbor holds her attention, she is blind to what everyone else can clearly see, the love her best friend Mitch carries in his heart for her. When her dead grandmother’s high school boyfriend returns to town for his class reunion, his immediate attraction to Francesca is a game changer. Can Mr. Long – and his wealth – open up undreamed of opportunities for Francesca’s future, and at what price?

I generously received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review…
Okay so I want to start off by saying that this story was not what I was expecting, not that it’s a bad thing though. Since this was my first Cecily Wolf book I had no clue what I was getting myself into, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! The story is told in multiple perspectives which was certainly an interesting aspect of the book because the readers are able to see what is happening from more then one side. Reckless Treasures is a relatively quick read (I finished in about two hours, but I can read pretty fast when I’m not interrupted) that will leave you questioning some things at the end, which makes the readers think. The author did a brilliant job developing characters, some you loved while others you wanted to give a good slap. Overall, I would certainly recommend this book and I will also be reading more from this author in the future!
