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.
I received this galley in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoy Priscilla West's books. She writes really complex and broken characters and I love reading about them healing and Reckless was no exception. I fell in love with both Jax and Riley. Jax was just so complex and Riley really knew how to stand on her own with him.
Jax and Riley first meet at one of his concerts and instantly the two of them have this hot, sexy connection. They never expect to see each other again after their one night stand but it turns out that Riley is the accountant that has been hired by the bands management to help control the money. Jax is your stereotypical bad boy, until you get to know him. He is actually a very sweet and caring guy but due to his horrible, abusive upbringing it has left him with more then his share of issues. When he finally started to open up to Riley about his past, I nearly lost it. Especially the story of his 14th birthday. I almost died. The story is told through the POV of Riley, but I loved the single flashback chapter from Jax POV. It added so much to his character. I really hope we learn more about Jax's past in the second book.
I couldn't believe the ending! What a cliffhanger. I am so excited for the next book, and I really hope that I don't have to wait long for it!
I highly recommend this book. I think its the start of an amazing series!
