Everything about him warned me to stay away.

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.

Reckless by Priscilla West
My Rating: 5 Stars

Can a “rock god” and a feisty accountant find perfect pitched harmony together? From their chance meeting at a concert to a twist of fate that leaves dedicated accountant, Riley actually joining the tour for Jax’s band to shore up their finances, there is something between these two that dares them each to let down their defenses and go for what their hearts want. But when the financial columns hit a sour note, Riley must remember her place, her job and her career, too bad every other part of her is screaming to be the one who breaks down the barbed wire barrier that keeps Jax just a little out of emotional reach, besides, a huge bonus is on the line for her. Meanwhile, Jax is struggling twice as hard as Riley to silence his inner demons and learn to show love, are their worlds so far apart that it is an impossible task? Timing is everything and they, too often, are out of sync with each other, until one disappearance and one motorcycle ride later, the barriers come crashing down only to reveal danger and an uncertain future.

Reckless by Priscilla West started out with all the promise of an excellent read, complete with the hot bad boy, the hot, cautious girl, the goofy supporting characters and a concert tour that spans much of the country in an over-the-top tour bus that reeks of extravagance. And then it veered into the fast lane, burning up the miles and the sexual tension while still playing to the fun side of life. Intriguing, yet filled with light-hearted banter and fun, as well as heart-to-heart moments, the more I read, the more I was hooked. Great dialogue, great plot twists and great characters that you do not always need to like at every moment, Reckless felt real, as if the reader were taken inside the world of the icons we call rock stars and tore the walls of mystique down to its bare essentials, real humans.

I received an ARC edition from Blackbird Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
