want, no matter how much I crave her.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
RECKLESS is a contemporary standalone by new to me author, Lex Martin. Honestly, I was first drawn in by the amazing cover but I was super surprised by how much I loved this story!
Ethan is a single dad to two adorable kids and is going through a divorce. Tori is hired as his nanny for the summer. Their first meeting has Ethan and Tori clashing but before long their irritation has sparks igniting!
Oh my gosh, where do I begin my list of things that I loved? I’m going to start with Tori because I FLOVED her! She was sassy, spunky, funny, loving and curiously vulnerable. She was a bundle of contradictions but I found myself cheering for her…I so wanted her to find happiness with Ethan. Ethan was…well, he was basically my dream man! Seriously, talk about a hit to my ovaries every time he interacted with his kiddos. He was hard working, a great father, charming, magnetic and HELLO!?! A COWBOY! Watching Ethan and Tori come together made my heart go PITTER PATTER! Plus, I adored the secondary characters, especially Ethan’s brother, Logan, who I hope gets his own story.
And just a small side note…it’s always cool for me when I read a book that’s set in my part of the world as long as it’s accurate. Kudos to Ms. Martin for nailing the setting and for weaving a bit of our Hispanic culture into the story!! I laughed my ass off at the “chancla” (flip flop) reference! Thanks for that!
Overall, this was an endearing, deliciously sweet but sexy book that simply was a delight to read! I’ll add this one to my READ AGAIN E-SHELF! Told from dual POVs with a fairytale ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
Shameless is a standalone featuring a different couple
