What I loved: THIS! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The sexting at the airport was great! Loved it and even Jax was delicious. Their first (view spoiler) encounter in New York was hot, sensual and thrilling. No need to beat around the bush either. I really loved that too. It is very unfortunate that a lot went down the drain later on.

If this was passion, it was more intense that anything she’d ever felt. Overwhelming. Obsessive. Dark

So if my inner dirty girl had an imaginary interview with the characters of this book, wonder what it would go like?
Well no need to wonder, because I'll appease your curiosity.

All character quotes came directly from the book, I'm not that creative ;)

This book was amazing. First off, it hasn’t been ALL OVER Goodreads with gushing, rave reviews. It SHOULD be all over Goodreads, with gushing, rave reviews. Came across Lkay’s review this morning and was intrigued – sounded great to “one=clicked” (no Guardian Angel around this morning to protect me from that).

Loved the wit, the banter, the sex.

Lexi was great – came from nothing and worked her way up in the world to be a success. Jax – yummy – came from something and wanted to work his way down

This book was so fun, sexy, and lovable! Reader beware: It’s one you aren’t going to want to put down. I started it late at night and read it all in one sitting....

Leix is an up and coming fashion designer. She started at the very bottom, and worked her way to the top. She has made a name for herself and she has done it with out help from anyone. It’s a pivotal point in Lexi’s career. All of her hard work is about to pay off. One thing I loved about Lexi is she was who

Let me start my review by saying I know reviewers always want their friends to love a book they enjoyed just as much, and I find myself in that exact predicament with this perfectly written, sexy as Victoria secrets book. I can't express how much I adored this saucy little number and I can assure you this book hit my five star buttons right from the beginning, so with that being said here are my 'Reckless' thoughts ...

"Tonight, baby, this is home."

This is a perfect example of why I think sex is so important in a novel. If ever a couple connected on a soul deep level while during the act, surely it was Jax and Lexi.

"He was both everything she wanted and nothing she needed. Or rather what she'd been telling herself she hadn't needed."

Whoops, sorry to digress. Jaxon, former actor, now professional stuntman has lived a life riddled with not being good enough for family, used by women across the globe for his "connections," and has pretty much given up on pleasing people. He's rough, he's tough, all tattooed biker hotness. If you don't like it, look the other way......

Lexie is a wedding designer. She is the woman who makes brides dreams come true (and very famous brides!) so her work is all about image.
And since she wants to be the next “it thing” when it comes to wedding dresses, image suddenly becomes everything.


Jax used to be an actor. Until he gave up because that didn’t make him happy and became a stunt actor. Which is basically and very sexy and dangerous career choice.
He is sexy, a bad-boy and doesn’t want commitments because

Reckless is Jax and Lexi's story. The Renegades are a stunt team, owned by Jax. Future books will be about other "Renegades". So this one was a stand

I'm not afraid to brawl for him either! Just watch my nails...because if I break one...then it's really on beetch!

Ok, now on to the book. I loved it! I'm so happy that there wasn't any unnecessary drama here. With what Jax and Lexi were dealing with, the author could have delivered drama on top of drama on top of drama...drawn out for chapters
This was the kind of man she craved- a rough around the edges, blue collar, hard loving man. A few tattoos, a dark background, confidence in the bedroom...or the bed of a truck...or on the back of a motorcycle...

A serious case of insta-love and it's hot as hell!!! This book's pretty much a series of misunderstanding after misunderstanding, yet somehow it manages to work for me. It could have something to do with the fact that Jax is hot as hell, just a thought...

Some Thoughts:

♦ Love the play on the sexting...I want that app!

♦ Jax...


...and his condoms! LOL!

♦ Lexi...sweet & tough...LOVE it!

♦ Jax + Lexi -> in the dark = HOT!!

♦ But...where in the heck was the epilogue? I hate that it ended just like that!

♦ Hopefully, the next book, Rebel, will be about Rubi (love her) and Wes (love him too!) and it's suppose to be out this year. But the third book, Ricochet, is not out till Winter 2014?? WTH!!

“I don’t have to see you ,” he said, his own breaths fast now, “to know how fucking beautiful you are.”

An unconventional meeting leaves Lexi and Jax free to be who they truly are with out their past to judge them, or demand anything from them. A night to shed their inhibitions and enjoy each others company turns out into so much more than they both were ever expecting….but are they ready to let each other in or are they too jaded to believe in love…

I completely loved this book. The first in the Renegades Series, brings Jax and Lexi together in a most delicious way.

Lexi is the self made wedding dress designer, she has moved up the ranks and overcome all the odds to be a success. But she doesn't have time for a love life and she isn't willing to risk her business again by falling in love with another typical LA guy. Jax is bad-boy of Hollywood that gave up the fame of acting to start

This was by far the most fun I had reading all year. I love, love, love this books. I don't know why some things just click with me and others don't, but Reckless was a hit in the bullseye. No regrets. Not only are Jax and Lexi a match made in sexual chemistry heaven but that author has some skill and she sure knows how to write some mind numbing flirt as well as sex scenes. I’m still blushing.

Okay. Don't shoot me. I know I initially gave this a solid 4 but now that I was able to think about, my rating is closer to 3.5 rather than a solid 4.

Don't get me wrong. I think this book is hot. It reminded me a little of Ella Frank's Exquisite Series. I like the characters especially Jax. I mean, gawd, even his name is hot. Plus, he's a little wild and a little reckless and he's dynamite in bed. In other words, he is every woman's fantasy.

I liked Lexi, too. She gorgeous, of course. Tall, blond
