Seventeen-year-old Frankie Devereux would do anything to forget the past. Haunted by the memory of her boyfriend’s death, she lives her life by one dangerous rule: Nothing matters. At least, that’s what Frankie tells herself after a reckless mistake forces her to leave her privileged life in the Heights to move in with her dad—an undercover cop. She transfers to a public high school in the Downs, where fistfights don’t faze anyone and illegal street racing is more popular than football.
Marco Leone is the fastest street racer in the Downs. Tough, sexy, and hypnotic, he makes it impossible for Frankie to ignore him—and how he makes her feel. But the risks Marco takes for his family could have devastating consequences for them both. When Frankie discovers his secret, she has to make a choice. Will she let the pain of the past determine her future? Or will she risk what little she has left to follow her heart?

The title of this book really fits the story well. Frankie is out of control and very reckless esp. when she meets bad boy Marco. A little instalove later and they are hitting it off. This wasnt a bad book but it wasnt an OMG you have to read this now or die!!! I did like it but I don't think it will appeal to everyone. The entire situation about Frankie and the death of her boyfriend (he was murdered) was fairly weird. I almost felt like I was dropped into the middle of a story vs. one that had just started.
I really didn't connect with any of the characters however, I did feel for Frankie and think she just really needed help vs. being shoved with her dad. I mean he is an undercover cop, who lives in a really bad end of town. WHY would you agree to have your daughter there? I mean really!
Over all the story didn't give me those feels that you think of when you read a contemporary. But it was still pretty good. If you loved this authors other books then I'm sure you will love this one.
