Review: Reckless Hearts (Oak Harbor #2) by Melody Grace

Posted on


“When you’re ready for a real man to show you what it feels like, you just let me know.”

It should be the offer of a lifetime: sexy craftsman Will Montgomery wants to rock my world, and boy, does he know what to do with his hands – and that filthy, delicious mouth of his…

Only problem is, I don’t believe in relationships. And Will has ‘boyfriend material’ written all over his chiseled, hunky abs. He was supposed to be an impulse fling, but now he’s shown up in Oak Harbor, NC, to put down roots, and he’s determined to make me com…mit.

Love always ends in tears and tequila, but Will seems different. He’s charming, and funny, and did I mention that miraculous mouth of his? Despite all my better judgment, I’m falling. Hard. But can something this good turn out to be true? Or will old scars keep us from building a future together? For the first time ever, maybe I want to be proven wrong…

My Review

“Call it chemistry, call it fate, I don’t need to know the name. It’s the one damn thing I’ve been sure of after a world of confusion and doubt. I need more.”

“In an instant, I’m surrounded by him: his scent, the whisper of his breath against my cheek, the heat from his sun-drenched skin. It’s an avalanche of sensation, and god, it’s too good to be true. How can someone just holding me feel so right?”

“There’s an intensity to his stare that makes something twist, an ache deep in my chest. Nobody’s ever looked at me like this. Nobody’s ever made me lose control, taken over my body with such command–and tenderness, too.”

Told from dual points of view, Reckless Hearts follows the story of Will and Delilah. Will and Delilah meet in a moment of chance. Will rescues Delilah from being locked out of her car and the two share a magical kiss, only to say goodbye moments later. Delilah never thought she would see Will again, but won’t deny that the kiss they shared, marked her. However, fate decided to intervene and brought Will back into Delilah’s life. At first, it seems too good to be true. Why would this amazing guy turn his life upside for Delilah? And would Delilah be willing to open up her heart and take a chance on love? Well, there is only one way to find out….

Small town romances were never on my radar until I discovered Melody Grace. There is just something about her writing and the stories that she tells. They just pull you in from the very first page. The characters are so real and so intriguing, that you just can’t look away. You want to know more about them and before you know it, you’ve devoured the entire book. Reckless Hearts is no exception. Now, I have to tell you that Reckless Hearts is a case of insta-love/insta-connection, but in this case, it works extremely well. The connection between Will and Delilah is strong and extremely palpable. The two of them are like magnets. No matter how much they try to fight it or try to stay away, it’s impossible.

Reckless Hearts is a fantastic addition to the Oak Harbor series. The story-line is fun and enchanting. The characters are easy to relate to and connect with. The writing is very easy to get lost in. Reckless Hearts is a wonderful summer read. It’s fun. It’s sexy, with just the right amount of steam. There’s a super hot, alpha male who isn’t afraid to go after the woman that he wants. The story has just the right amount of angst and drama. And the characters are ones you just can’t get enough of. I enjoyed everything about Reckless Hearts and can not wait to see where this series will go next!
