I NEEDED TO LEARN TO BE LESS MELODRAMATIC, BUT IT WAS HARD IN THIS FAMILY.
It's been a year since FRANCESCA FAIRHOLM met the rest of the Osiris team and the company heads, her two half brothers Nero and Lex. As they groom her for leadership, it's all Frankie can do to keep her cynical sarcasm in check as she starts training two new Strikers, avoids the romantic advances of Spark Dawson, and does her best to pry a little family history from her cold, distant Aunt Alexa.
With the pressure of her secret dual life building and her mother acting strangely, Frankie's sanity is pushed to the brink when she makes a grisly discovery that shakes the young Striker to her core. Despite her cousins' fear that her panic attacks signal a full mental breakdown, Frankie is positive she's not crazy. Finding clarity in her personal investigation into Osiris's origins, she uncovers more about the company than she would rather know.
As her life starts to unravel, things get deadly and, before she knows it, she's facing down an old target's pissed-off widow, an unstoppable mercenary, and the one thing she's most terrified of admitting to herself.
It's possible the whole situation won't explode in her face. Yeah, like Frankie has that kind of luck.

Usually, you can't make me love a second book more than the first book, but with Uncontrollably Wasted that's exactly what happened. C. Elizabeth Vescio took a world and a cast of characters I loved and expanded it while adding in a plot that had me on the edge of my seat. The main character, Frankie, is once again pulling at my heart strings! I laughed with her, cried with her, and (despite the intense career path) I related with her. Not only was Frankie back and better than ever but her cousins and a few other favorites came back with a sexy, hilarious, exciting vengeance. Not to mention, there were a few new additions that made reading Uncontrollably Wasted well-worth the ride. I cannot wait until book three in the series! If you love to read and have a pulse, I suggest UW with all of my wine-loving, sarcasm-filled, thrill-seeking heart!
