I’d seen bad boys before, but he had it all and more. The rippling muscles covered in tatts, the piercing eyes hiding dark secrets, the silky voice that could make a girl come with just a whisper . . .

He was exactly the type of guy that would get me in trouble, but when he jumped off the stage, inked skin glistening with sweat and breathed his seductive words into my ear, I couldn’t resist the temptation.

It was supposed to be the best one-night stand of my life, but fate didn’t let it play out that way. Things happened. I got upset. I got hasty. And worst of all, I got reckless.

After that disaster, I thought it was the last I’d see of him. But what I didn’t know was that I’d started something.

Something that could shatter the very thing I had worked so hard to protect.

I should have known back then that the most seductive things in life are also the most dangerous.

“Everything about him told me to stay away”

Reckless starts out fast paced and intense from page one and never slows down. Riley is an outgoing girl who actively seeks out bad boys to get involved with. She feels that you’re less likely to get hurt that way because you know what you’re getting. Jax is the very definition of bad boy. He is the lead singer of a rock band that is on the fast track to superstardom. He is a tall, dark, sexy rocker and when he sets his eyes on Riley the sparks immediately begin to fly. They are both masters of playing games with the opposite sex and neither one of them is willing to back down. When a crazy set of circumstances forces them to be in close quarters with each other they will find that there is more between them than the initial attraction.

I loved this book from page one. The heat between Riley and Jax is scorching. From the night of their initial meeting, you just know that things are going to get intense between them really fast. While Riley is certain that Jax is only interested in one thing, she could not be more wrong. Their relationship develops with a lot of angst and bumps along the road. They are both convinced that they have the other one all figured out. The games that they play in the beginning are relentless, and neither one of them wants to be the first to give. Their banter is fresh and funny. This was almost as entertaining as the sex scenes. With as much tension that is built up between them, when Riley and Jax finally get together, it is explosive!

Things get even better as Jax and Riley really get to know each other. The stories of their pasts eventually come out and they are not disappointing. Yes, this is a good girl meets bad boy rocker story, however Jax has an appalling back story and is much more than what is seen on the surface. The last few chapters are so intense you simply cannot put it down.

The cliffhanger at the end of this book is one of the best I have ever read. It had me screaming in frustration and begging for the next book at the same time. I need more Jax and Riley!

4.5 stars and straight shots of whiskey! Enjoy!
