Cliff hanger...............I really wish the author had included a warning in the book description that this book is a cliff hanger. It was a good story and I enjoyed reading it but was dismayed when I got to the end and there is no HEA or even happy for now. There's nothing to tell the reader when the next book in the series is coming, nothing to say how many books before there is a definite ending. If the book description had included the warning about this being an installment series I would ...more

Being someone who reads MC based books like I drink coffee (which if you know me, saying I'm a coffee addict would be an understatement), I have come to figure out what I love so much about them and what I don't when it comes to those that don't do it for me. RECKLESS? This book has gone far beyond what I expected. I knew of Franca Storm's writing and I know that she is an amazing writer so it goes without saying that I'd delve into her MC book faster than I would if I saw a tattooed biker walki ...more

In my hunt to find new MC romances, I came across this stunning cover and decided to take a chance on this book after reading this blurb. As whilst the blurb promised me a biker that I could love tattoos and more . There was more the story of these two and that what kept me turning the page knowing this was only the beginning of their story. Reckless is the first in a two book series about

The ultimate ball-buster...

The author got my attention immediately by throwing me right into the middle of the explosive chemistry between Ax & Rox. They were both badasses, and both determined to be in control of the situation that brought them together. Neither of them would give an inch. Well, let me rephrase that. What he offered was closer to a foot (wink-wink).

Ax was bitter. He had been burned and he had a score to settle. As the VP of the Black Thorn MC, he was used to following order

ohhhhh I was so sad to finish this book! I need more! :o(

Really enjoyed this, I was gripped from the start and was shouting at my kindle by the end of it.

brilliant storyline and a refreshingly kick-ass heroine! she is awesome!

I don't want to give anyway the ending but needless to say I will be stalking Franca's page for news of the next book! some more Ax please....maybe with some Smiter chucked in too?! :o)

Highly recommended! this is a five star biker book for me!

Franca! What the junk? Are you trying to kill me with a slow torturous death? HOLY HELL!

This series is going to be fantastic. The characters are absolutely breathtaking in a bad ass dear lord please don’t save me way. Let them take me … seriously DO NOT COME FOR ME.

In the first release, Reckless, Franca is laying the ground work while giving us a tornadic story. Yes, tornadic …. It’s a freaking storm barreling never saw it coming rain hell dow

“I feel her arms around me all of a sudden. They snake around my waist, holding me tight. She rests her head on my back. Her touch starts to calm me, shocking me.”

4 Reckless stars!!! I loved this book, what a great start to the series!! I was already a fan for Franca Storm and now after reading this book, I can understand why!!

Ax is the VP of the Black Thorns MC, he’s dark, bitter and dangerous. He’s just returned back to his club after being gone for several years. Rox is a bad@ss and she’s not

WHAT. THE. HELL. Franca Storm?! What have I ever done to you? Congrats, you are the newest member on the list of authors trying to kill me! That ending.....there are no words.

Neil "Ax" Barron is now the VP of the Black Thorns MC. He walked away 2 years ago, and the only reason he's back is to take out the President of the ruthless Devil's Mavericks MC. That violent, underhanded, extremely cruel man is his father. Ax is flying under the radar to complete his mission without starting an all out wa

Holy Hell! Loved this book!! Was pulled in right from the beginning and could not put it down.

Rox is a tough as nails, ball busting, gets shit done her way kind of person. She doesnt take any crap from anyone and she doesn't do emotions.

Ax is a lot like Rox. Being VP of a MC called Black Thorns hes tough as nails, doesnt back down, dominant and sexy as sin. swoon.. (My new book bf)

When Rox and Ax meet there is an immediate attraction and the sparks just fly. But Rox isnt going to back down to

I never in my wildest dreams thought I would like this story as much as I did the start of it was a little different and I found my self having a real hard time getting into it, but of course as the story went on and I was on chapter 5 before I even noticed I knew then I 100% loved this story and couldn't get enough of it. My first time reading anything by this amazing and talented author and it wont be the last time either. The attention to details and the story line really make this story just ...more

4.5* read.
I always read this authors books so was really excited to get stuck into this one. I am really weird with my MC books, I either love or hate them and that depends on the authors writing style and whether I can connect with the author and characters. Ax and Rox my god the chemistry was explosive and both strong willed which causes some massive fireworks. I loved them together and loved the chemistry and banter and fireworks with them. I c

I received an ARC for an honest review of RECKLESS (Black Thorns #1) by Franca Storm

After finishing Reckless, I went straight on to Soulless! Franca Storm drew me in and hooked me! This MC book had me screaming for MORE! The cliffhanger was intense and the relationship between Ax and Rox is even more intense. With so many dangerous individuals this novel keeps you on your toes. Did I mention nobody in this story is unattractive? Even after reading Soulless, I'm still craving this sto

FIVE Stars- I received an ARC for an honest review of SOULLESS (Black Thorns #2) by Franca Storm

Soulless was even better than Reckless and I want more! This book keeps you on edge from start to finish! I was angry upset and excited. Black Thorns #2 is a dirty dark ride, that is so perfect from start to finish. There is yet another cliff hanger and if you're like me you will be going mad trying to find out what will happen to Rox and Ax next. Love this MC series!

Gah! Amazing

Not a big fan of MC books, but Franca Storm hits it outta the park every time. It's not just about violence, rules, etc...there is a big emotional arc that about kills your guts...but in that way that has you asking for more.

Being completely obsessed with MC books at the moment, I was ecstatic to find Reckless. And as soon as I started reading it I was hooked. Was so sad to see it end but immediately bought Souless! Can't wait to see what happens with Rox and Neil ♡

Read quiet a lot of Ok or good reads and at first this book I thought would fall into the same category, how wrong was I, fanbloodytastic!! The ending is not what I wanted and there is only one other book that finished like this one and that makes a change,
Brilliant read highly recommend.
