I'm in love with a woman I can't have, and there's absolutely nothing I can do to stop myself from falling.

The problem? Her brother's my best friend.

I shouldn't want her this much. Not when it goes against the bro code. Not when I've never been able to commit to a woman for longer than a night.

But one look into her eyes and I'm a mess for her. She's my everything. And I h

I loved Lia and and Max. A brothers best friend romance.

Lia is the sister of Collin from the previous book and Max is his best friend along with Gavin.

The three guys served in the forces together went through life and death situations together and now out of the forces are moving on in life while still supporting each other.

I love these three guys and I adored The right kind of reckless equally as much as the first book each for their own reasons.

Book one is Collin and A

What a great book and a great series! My favorite part about this book is that Max and Lia know they are meant to be together, but have to figure out how to get there. They both have demons and obstacles to face, but never second-guess their love.

Friends to lovers stories always grip my heart, and THE RIGHT KIND OF RECKLESS is no exception. I highly recommend for people who enjoy a sexy, steamy, contemporary romance. When you find a book written by an amazing author, with a swoonworthy hero, a

The Right King of Reckless is the second book of the Reckless Hearts series by author Heather Van Fleet. It is a standalone contemporary romance. It’s of the I’m in love with my best friend’s sister forbidden lovers kind.

Max has loved Lia from the moment he laid eyes on her. But falling for Lia and acting on it are two very different things. Being his best friend’s younger sister, Max is kept from doing more than loving her from afar while serial dating countless women because of the bro code

Lia knows how to surprise her man, "Max groaned. “Warn a guy the next time you decide to go commando.” Max wants the best things for his girl, “good.” He kissed my nose. “You deserve a nice bed. That futon was a killer on my back.” I loved this book, I fell in love with Max.

The Right Kind of Reckless is the first novel I have read by Author Heather Van Fleet. This is also the second book in the Reckless Hearts series but can be read as a standalone.

This novel takes you on a journey of a woman who is heading down a road of self discovery and a man who wants what he can't have.

Lia had a traumatic situation happen to her in college. Ever since then she's dropped the good girl facade and brought the inner rebel out. She stripped

A heartwarming tale of two people in love finding their way to each other. Max and Lia's story is guaranteed to have you grinning from ear to ear and blushing from head to toe with their electrifying chemistry.

After reading the first book in the series, I didn't think I could feel a more emotional attachment then to Collin and Addie...but Max and Lia upped by emotional attachment quota.

The way the author brought Max and Lia together...drawn out as it was, created the perfect storm that drew you into their story. Where Collin and Addie's story was more lighthearted, Max and Lia's had a measure of darkness to it. There were many memorable moments of self discovery that brought the story to a different l

This is the second book in this series by this author. This is the first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last. This book can be read as a stand alone read. This is a heart warming story of two people finding each other and their love for each other. The characters are really well written and have fantastic chemistry between them. I can't wait to read more from this author in the future.
Highly recommended

This is a great love story. I have not read the first book, so I had no background on any of the characters. However, I was able to fall in love with them. Max and Lea-Lea are just adorable together.

This book really touched my heart because of the relationship between the two characters. It comes across so clearly how much Max cares about Lia. Even when they're not getting along, he is protective of her (in a good way) and wants her to be happy and safe. This quote, "And no matter what, I would always be there for her, if only as a friend." demonstrates all the reasons why Max won me over. So often in romance novels, there's so much conflict or sexually-infused bickering that you get the id ...more

Gratefully received this book as a pre-publication edition from the publishers via NetGalley.



This was the first book that I have read by this author and so I am not familiar with her writing style however I will be going back to read her earlier publications.

We are introduced to the h of the story (Lee-Lee AKA Lia Montgomery) as she punches her boyfriend (soon to be ex) when she finds him getting busy with one of her co-workers. The ex presses charges and Lia is arrested. This is when we are in

Second book in the Restless Hearts series. Collin’s sister, Lia, who we saw as a flighty, hardcore girl, in the first book, is shown here as a broken girl who was attacked by the “nice” guy she was dating in college and almost raped. Before that incident, she was a nice, sweet and shy girl. After the incident, she dropped out from college, hid in her parent’s house for a while, then went out to work menial jobs. She changed her personality and her appearance. Now she sports a lot of piercings an ...more

Jam packed with humor, heartfelt emotions, and some seriously smoking hot chemistry, I adored every page of this captivating story and read it in less than twenty-four hours.

I adored Reckless Hearts, the first book in this series, and I was already intrigued over Lia and swooning over Max before I even started this one.

Lia is a fantastic leading lady. She has a great, quirky, feisty personality that I love AND she has a heart of gold and a layer of softness underneath the prickly surface.

The second book in Heather Van Fleet’s Reckless Heart series focuses on Max’s story. I have not read the first in this series but the author does such a great job of giving you a touch base on what’s going on that I never felt like I was lost. Max and Lia will grab your attention with their back and forth relationship and will keep you on your toes.

Max has always felt something for Lia since he met her 5 years ago. But he has always put as

The Right Kind of Reckless (Reckless Hearts) by Heather Van Fleet  
What a man!  Max is a better man than he gives himself credit for.  He lives by a code.  Fights for the people he loves and is a stand up guy with a bit of baggage of his own.  Yet it's a cocky, smart mouthed, hard as nails, bad girl that speaks to his soul.  Confidence is a shield Lia wears to hide the scared woman within.  Behind the tattoos and piercings lies a damaged girl struggling to keep her head above water and her heart

Van Fleet has created a remarkable story that is so easy to get lost in because of the realistic way she has written the characters with an unforgettable love story that is sure to tug at your heartstrings.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. Well this was a forbidden love, because Max was in love with his best friends little sister, and he did not want to ruin the friendship, and even though he has a friendship with Leia , he pushes her aside and starts manwhorin, so as not to give in to his feelings..brillient, when in doubt just become a manwhore, seems the solution to all stories..I felt sorry for her, to read what that poor girl went thru, was heartbreaking, and then the way some ...more

This is a sweet story, and I like that the characters are in their mid-20's, and for the most part acted it. I also liked that Lia is sassy and tattooed, and that she wasn't putting her life on hold waiting for Max. The opening scene with Max was gross, but I do like him. He's tough and light-hearted, and once he decided that he's being an idiot staying away from Lia, he wasn't going to let anything stand in the way. This is a friends to lovers, best friend's sister romance, and I love both of t ...more

A sweet, sizzling romance between a former Marine and his best friends sister.

This is the second in the series, but the first one I've read. It can be read as a standalone story.

Each character has a detailed, well thought out backstory which lends itself to this will-they-won't-they storyline. They overcome their issues and search for their happy ever after.

I received an advance copy through Netgalley in order to provide this review.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
Max is in love with a woman he knows he can't have but it doesn't stop him from wanting her. So he does the only thing he thinks will keep her off his mind, he stays away from her and sleeps with other women. Although it's not what he wants because she is his best friends little sister and he can not go there.

The Right Kind of Reckless is the second book in the Reckless Hearts trilogy.

In this installment, Max will finally face the secret that has been driving him crazy. That’s right, ...more

In this second installment of the Reckless Hearts series, we delve into Max and Collin's sister Lia's lives. Max is best friend to Collin, so you know it's going to go all kinds of wrong when he admits to loving Collin's baby sister. Let the games begin!

Right off the bat I liked Max and was annoyed by Lia. She had a chip on her shoulder from an incident in college. It sounded like a serious incident, however without many details from Heather Van Fleet, it was hard to understa
