Heroes come in many forms--soldiers who fall and rise, ordinary people doing extraordinary things, women who battle for their marriage, reporters who fight for truth and justice, and men who put it all on the line for the women they love.

Sometimes heroes fall.

Colonel Michael Cedars is a decorated war hero returning home from Afghanistan. Wounded, unsure if he’ll walk agai

I don't know where to begin...this book reached inside my heart, grabbed hold and refused to let go. Even now, after reading the words "the end", I'm still wanting more of Hope and Michael's story. It's a very different concept--at least from the books I can recall offhand. I loved the originality of the plot and the characters. I can see this as a movie--hint, hint to anyone out there listening! Hope is the kind of woman who would probably intimidate me in real life--at least at first--but she' ...more

I was interested in “Reckless Endangerment” by Amber Lea Easton because of some of her non-fiction work that had quite impressed me and I wanted to see how her talent would show in a different genre.
From the first page is was evident how well Easton can draw her readers into the story and how skilful she creates characters that we instantly will want to know more about. The wounded Afghanistan war veteran Michael and his journalist love interest Hope are far from one dimensional creations and th

I'm not very good at writing reviews, but I highly recommend this novel so am giving it my best shot. From the first moment, when the reader meets Colonel Michael Cedars, it's obvious that this is going to be a deeper novel than the typical romantic suspense. It deals with a wounded marine (Michael) and his wife (Hope) who is an investigative reporter involved in a human trafficking story in Colorado. All I can really say is--WOW. This novel blew me away--I even cried at times, becoming so invol ...more

This book was Ah-Mazing! If I could give it 10 stars I would. Hope and Michael <3 Gosh what an epic story they have. This book is full of action, love, struggles, and mystery. Hope is an Investigative reporter and Michael is a recovering War hero. That right there should give you a heads up to how epic this story is. Every chapter is crammed with major events, but still Amber Easton manages to give you the heart felt character exchanges

Fabulous novel! I didn't want it to end. I started out reading the prequel that the author posted on her website (yes, I'm a fan) so was hooked before reading page one of this new release. The storyline was unexpected...which is refreshing to find in a romantic suspense novel. The story and the characters feel like they've been ripped from the news. Riveting. I liked that the hero (a war vet from Afghanistan, a marine) is partially paralyzed, yet written about as the sexy, smart guy he is. And t ...more

This is the third book I've read by this author and I wasn't disappointed. Reckless Endangerment was an emotional whirlpool that sucked me in and took my breath away. The love story between Hope and Michael is epic. I love that they start the story as a married couple. Once again, Ms. Easton spins a smart and unique tale that I couldn't put down. I read this in one night! I can't recommend this high enough. Buy this book! If you haven't bought her previous two books, buy them, too! You won't be ...more
Excellent read, great character development, exciting plot--buy it! You won't be disappointed with this novel. The author did a great job handling the PTSD and physical challenges of the story without being overt about it--I mean, not overly "in your face". From the first page, I felt intensely connected to the characters and was pulled into the suspense plot. Great romantic suspense novel, touching love story, and very well done across the board. Like I said, you won't be disappointed, this is ...more

I just finished this latest release by Amber Lea Easton and the word "flawless" comes to mind. This is yet another well developed story with extremely interesting characters to guide you through the plot twists and turns. I am hoping to hear more about Hope and Michael as I doubt either of these 2 characters can stay out of trouble long. I have grown more and more impressed with this author with each release. ...more

This is one of those books you know will be on the keeper shelf, one that will be re-read from time to time. The characters came to life from the first page. It's an emotional story, one that made my heart break at times. For a romantic suspense, I felt that the author delivered everything a reader looks for in the genre PLUS some! Excellent read. ...more

Highly recommend--what's not to like? Sexy wounded marine, feisty investigative reporter, a plot that's both highly emotional and suspenseful...MUST READ! That sums it up pretty well. I really enjoyed this story from the fist page to the last. ...more

By the end of Reckless Endangerment I can sum it up by saying it's Triple-H......heartbreaking, heartwarming, and heartpounding. It's full of likable and fully fleshed-out characters, realistically depicted issues related to the aftermath of war, and it presented a fast-paced mystery surrounding human trafficking that kept me on the edge of my seat. It shows that atrocities not only occur in faraway lands but outside our front door as well. As two people deal both mentally and physically with th ...more

Wonderful novel, one of the most well written and best developed that I've read in a long time. The characters rung true, the plot pulled me in from the first page, and the ending left me wanting more. I can't think of anything that I didn't like, actually. Very well written--I find it hard to believe anyone would be disappointed by this novel, especially if you like something a bit "more" from a book. I'm a war veteran myself and felt the author had an innate understanding of what it's like to ...more

Have you ever started reading a book that is so fantastic & enrapturing with such memorable characters & writing that you have forced yourself to only read a little a day, because you don't want the experience to end? If you are lucky, you have. That sums up what this book was to me. I randomly discovered this author through another book she wrote (also 5 ...more

A definite winner! Loved the character development and realistic plot. Put this on your MUST READ list. I read it in one night. I'd never heard of Ms. Easton before last week when I stumbled upon her book tour for this, took a chance, and she blew me away! I've already bought her other two novels and am going to be on the look out for more. I love it when I find a new author to be excited about! ...more

Outstanding! I've read a lot of poor quality novels lately and this one was a refreshing change. The character development is excellent, the plot is compelling, and I can't find anything negative to say. If you enjoy a novel that has depth, excellent writing, and a great storyline, then check this one out.

So much action, & suspense. A seemingly hopeless situation turns to love. Some funny sarcastic humor always helps.

All's well that ends well.

4.5 🌟 Stars of Heartfelt Romantic Suspense

A Great Read filled with heart, grit, determination romance and suspense. The characters were unique, and interesting. The romance was engaging, but also fraught with real-life obstacles. This made the the book hard to put down, and quite addicting. There was no way not to cheer this couple on nut they got their HEA!

This was definitely a decent read. Good solid characters and good sold character development. I think I just wanted more.

It probably sounds shallow but I really don't care too much about story lines that don't aid in the development of the characters or the relationship between the characters and this was one of those for me.

I think I would have liked it better from the war point of view when they were getting together under really difficult circumstances rather than them getting back together

Sexy Thriller

Reckless Endangerment is another sexy and suspenseful thriller from Amber Lea Easton.

Investigative journalist Hope Shane has also recently moved to Colorado. She's spent time in a war zone and is hoping for a new start. Known to few is the fact that Hope and Michael have been married for almost a year.

Great read! A good mix of suspense, humor and emotions. Hero and heroine both with a fair share of physical and/or emotional imperfections.
4.5 stars, only reason I did not give this 5 stars was that there were a few typos and a tattoo that moved from left to right ;-)
