For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.
I’m a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.
I don’t want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won’t get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.
Between us, she’s the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce.
What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn’t notice.
My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn’t matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can’t have and shouldn’t want, no matter how much I crave her.
“Tori has a wildness about her, a level of honesty I’m not used to.”
“For some reason, I want to remember every detail of this moment. How she glows in the moonlight. How the chirp of crickets swells in the meadow around us. How the scent of cedar and wet earth permeates the air. And, for the first time in years, how I feel alive.”
“You make me come undone. From the moment you strutted into my house, you have occupied most of my thoughts, half of my dreams, and at least two-thirds of my future plans, so do not think for one minute I’m not dying to be with you.”
Reckless was one of my most anticipated reads for 2018 and let me tell you, this book does not disappoint. Reckless was everything that I could want in a Lex Martin read and then some. This story was filled with heart, drama and is sure to leave you with all the feels…
Told from dual points of view, Reckless follows the story of Tori and Ethan. All her life, Tori has always felt like she was an outsider; like she was never good enough. She thought she found love, but had never been so wrong. So, when Tori’s sister asks her to move closer to her, she can’t help but consider it. This might be just what she needed. A fresh start and a chance to forget her past…Ethan is still reeling from his separation. His divorce can’t possibly come soon enough. He’s trying to do it all, but even he knows he can’t. Hiring a nanny is his only option. Only he never saw Tori coming. She is everything he could possibly want, but can’t have. The sparks and chemistry are undeniable. Only time will tell if these two will be able to keep their relationship strictly business or will they they give into the passion that burns between them…
Reckless is one of those reads that you just have to devour in one sitting. The writing is so captivating and the story-line demands to be devoured. I feel in love with Tori and Ethan right away. Both so broken and not at all looking for love. But, let me tell you, the moment these two met, sparks were flying all over the place. The verbal foreplay was off the charts and I just knew these two were going to be a force to be reckoned with. Tori has a smart mouth and isn’t afraid to give it to you straight. Ethan is a jerk with a heart of gold. Together these two are just EVERYTHING! I loved every moment these two spent together and couldn’t wait to see how their story was going to play out.
Reckless was everything that I could have asked for and then some. It was filled with a lot of heart and soul and just gave me all the feels. From drama to romance to steamy as hell moments. To moments that frustrate you and ones that have you swooning all over the place. This book has it all. Reckless by Lex Martin was totally worth the wait and was just the read I was looking for. She totally knocked it out of the park with this read and I look forward to seeing what she’s got up her sleeve next.
