Stacey is Sassy
Sebastian’s a control freak…with a big heart.

Every time I start a new read, I have one foot in my life (got to make sure the kids are doing their homework) and one foot in another world. This one was a little hard to step into. She's an artist…ha ha ha, in real life I struggle drawing stick figures. She has curly hair that escapes from its bounds…unfortunately my reality is dead straight hair that I have to coax life into. She's an independent woman who doesn’t like to have things done for her…t

I'm so glad I got back to this series and finally read Sebastian's book. I really liked seeing him with Charlie and how their romance started off slow and sweet and then by the end of the book they were burning up the pages. It was great to see and made for a very intriguing read. I will definitely not be waiting too long to read the next book because I have learned my lesson. Do not wait to read these authors!

This one is for Sebastian...he is just a very worthy hero...I appreciate immensely that the author made him to be not a ladies don't need to prove "you are a man" for sleeping with everything that moves! That is so unappealing and so unoriginal...give me a "real man" and the author delivered just that! I only wish there was more plot to bite was a bit slow for my liking, nonetheless...I would not mind reading that kind of hero again so bring it on Bella Andre!

A sweet romance, with just enough angst and drama to keep it interesting. Nice and likable heroes with a realistic connection and some sexy moments. Absolutely amazing writing style (although a little cheesy at moments).
Definitely recommend especially if you're looking for solid contemporary romances.

4.25 stars! This was a heartfelt , heartbreak read at times for me. I really felt both of their insecurities :(Sebastian was a great hero. he really was a sweet, loving gentleman. I love how he wanted to help and make everything perfect.(sadly this is part of his insecurities). Charlie was a unique heroine. she was a bit different but I liked her.

I drawn into this series because of the blurp said charlie is a sculpture. I like the idea of art. Like many Bella Andre book this book is minimum angst. Not so much on plot story. Midthrough the book i feel like attending a self help motivation convention. Not so much steam either.

Just in this book, it add a bit dark side due to sebastian past. But even that the dark story is minimal.

Let me start this review by saying I love Bella Andre's writing. She is in my list of must-buy authors for me. And I LOVED Will and Harper's story in Breathless in Love. But Reckless in Love left me a little disappointed (and I HATE saying that)...

Although Reckless in Love is the second book in the Maverick Billionaires series, it can be read as a standalone since each book is focused on a different Maverick. That being said,

Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully blend their writing so effortlessly in this latest installment to the Maverick Billionaire series. Sebastian Montogmery is a self-made billionaire whose success has brought him many good things in life. But it seems that there is one thing that has always been missing. Since the loss of his parents as a teen, Sebastian has lost faith in his ability to love but a free-spirited artist by the name of Charlie Ballard shows him that he does have the capacity to lo

well .... the high I had from reading Breathless in Love completely fizzled to negative sub-zero with Reckless in Love :(

The story of Sebastian and Charlie was excruciatingly long and took place entirely too much in their heads. The should we, should we not was so painful to read that when they finally did I felt like skimming the entire thing. The lack of trust and communication written into these characters was in contradiction to their very open desire for one another from the moment they set

Was I reading the same book as everyone else? I see all these 4 and 5 star reviews and I wonder. I don't know if it was because Ms. Andre co-write this with another author, but this book took FOREVER to read. (NOTE: I read the first book of this series and it was a much better storyline than this one. You couldn't tell 2 authors co-wrote it.) I am a person who can easily read a book a day if it captures my full attention, which this book did not. I finally started skimming at around 65% because ...more

Rating: 3.5 stars

Reckless in Love follows the love story of Sebastian, a successful self-help guru, and Charlie, the artist he hires to build a sculpture for his building.

I liked that our hero, Sebastian, was not a manwhore before meeting Charlie. I'm tired of romance heroes who have screwed their way through half the female population. I also liked that Sebastian is 100% loyal to Charlie. Similarly, Charlie is only interested in Sebastian.

Unfortunately, this book

Sebastian is a billionaire who went to Charlie , an artist, to commission a sculpture for one of his building.

The story went far too fast for my liking. I can get behind lust at first sight, but the love, I-will-do-anything-for-you, at first sight that was going on here was too much. By 20% of the book, he was sure she was the one, while she was introducing him to her mother and wanting only his touch. But then they still played the "soon" game, that would have been cute if everything else wasn'

A really good romance, but what I found most interesting is how it addressed the problems involved in growing up with alcoholic parents. Sebastian has spent his life trying to help people since he was never able to help his parents. He has made a career out of telling people how to live a 'better' life. Then he meets Charlie. She's an artist and won't follow his dictates. She considers herself to be very independent. ...more

I could always depend on Bella Andre to bring me to a magical place. Teaming up with Jennifer Skully to write the Maverick series was ingenious. Harper and Will’s story was enchanting and filled with love, but Sebastian and Charlie really pulled me in. I was awed and inspired by the woman that they wrote and the love that just flew off the pages.

I really loved Charlie and her dedication to her mom, her art and to herself. When she sees Sebast

I absolutely adored listening to the first book in the Maverick Billionaires series, so this standalone sequel was an audiobook I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. Eva Kaminsky is one of my favorite narrators, and Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully have already proven that their writing meshes perfectly well together in Breathless in Love. And thankfully, I wasn’t let down – Reckless in Love is another sweet, charming love story from these two

Such an amazing book I just finished. I loved this second book. This series just seems to get so much better. I just have loved every book that Bella Andre has written and I so loved this one too. Also sending thanks to Jennifer Scully as well.

I so loved Sebastian Montgomery. Such a gorgeous kind Billionaire. He sets out to finish building the control centre for the Maverick Billionaire's group. It is then he meets the gorgeous Charlie Ballard. She works as a junk yard artist and a teacher at th

I really enjoyed getting to know the guys in The Maverick Group from the first book in this series, Breathless in Love , and I couldn’t wait to read more. Reckless in Love by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully is the second book in the Maverick Billionaire series and I liked it even more than the first.

I liked how these two met, that it was through Charlie's art that Sebastian became smitten with her. I loved that Sebastian helped Charlie realize her art was more than just for her, that others would be enthralled with it as well. While Sebastian opened up a whole new world for her, I didn't like how Charlie was changing, it seemed like she was conforming to what Sebastian thought she should be with her art. Granted Charlie had a good reason for this, one other than because she was starting to ...more
Great series! Sebastian and Charlie's chemistry is explosive and they really heat up the pages! He's a sexy billionaire, and motivational speaker who has an overwhelming compulsion to "fix" everything. Charlie is a beautiful, down to earth, "go-with-the-flow" talented sculptor. Can they merge their worlds or will the collision implode everything around them? ...more

Sadly, for me too.

The heroine didn't help either frankly speaking.
At their first encounter she already planned she was gonna jump into bed with him after the exhibition is done. Because you know, she thought that wouldn't be professional if she bumped uglies with him right after he gave her a cheque for a hundred grand for her art.

The second instalment in the Billionaires series, follows Sebastian as he meets and falls for Charlie an artist who welds beautiful animals from scrap metal.
It was nice to enter back into the billionaire world, I didn't quite enjoy this one as much as the first in the series, but I shall be looking out for the next instalment.

**I received an electronic copy of Restless in Love from the authors in exchange for an honest review.

To be completely honest, Reckless in Love started off a little rocky for me. While I loved Charlie and Sebastian’s first meeting, there was something that bugged me a little bit. It was Sebastian’s thoughts. His insta-love for Charlie kind of weirded me out for a minute. Actually, insta-love isn’t the best way to describe it. He knew he wasn’t in love with her yet.

Reckless in Love is a great addition to the Maverick Billionaires series. It is artistically filled with beautiful descriptions, emotional connections and a fantastic love story. The emotions portrayed were real and connected with me on multiple levels. It has a great message of having to find yourself before you can give yourself fully to another. Though this is a part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone.

In this story you will meet Sebastian and Charlie. On the outside, they could not
