Surprising debut...

3.5 stars

I wasn't sure what to expect from this debut story. I very rarely go into a story blind, yet I dove right into this one.

At first I didn't know what to think about Bron. He has been a manwhore up until this point. He doesn't do relationships and makes sure women know this up front. Although he is never with another woman after he sees the heroine, I thought there was too much reference to his previous "ways". I liked that he was over the top alpha and fell hard and f
Hot short read, but h was annoyed in the middle, made no sense at all.

manwhore virgin your untouched vagina is a gift trope

I was going to give this 2 stars because in my mind it was "ok" but since this is a debut book and she gained points in her closing letter of this isn't literary brilliance so don't expect it. It was fun to write (summed up in my own words) I raised the rating.

"Reckless" is the story of Bron and Leigh.
Leigh just turned 21, and her adopted parents are forcing her to marry their 51 year old business partner for their financial merger.
To escape the distress, she runs away to Vegas, and meets millionaire/crime lord/gambler Bron..and insta attraction!
Short book with loads of drama and hot sex. There was something missing for me (either could have been more sweet/more dirty) but a good read.
Wish there was an epilogue.

So let me start off with that this is the first Vanna King book I have read and it was an ARC which sometimes with an unknown (to me) author doesn't always turn out to be the best of reads! But, DAMN was this not one of those circumstances!!! I abso-fucking-lutely LOVED this book so freaking bad I blocked everything out and consumed Reckless in about 2 hours. Bron (the male alpha H) and Leigh (the equally strong but innocent h) were combustible and I loved the chemistry that bounced off the page ...more

Absolutely ❤️ it

Reckless by Vanna King is an insta love romance book. I absolutely loved the characters.The heroine is feisty and smart, And a hero who is a total alpha. Leigh is kinda being force into an arranged marriage by her parents to help her father. She takes a break for a few days in Vegas before the wedding. There she meets Baron and there instant attraction. Will Leigh do what is best for her dad or what's best for her? I highly recommend this book

just finished reading this last night and i instantly fell in love with the character. Bron is a typical arrogant alpha male but when he the woman who tame him he will get her. and leigh is a innocent but have a liitle touch of sassyness that everyone will love. I love how they instantly feel the attraction to each other and never fight it.
Vanna King is now on my top list of must awaited instalove books.. thank you for shating a wonderful and steamy story.

That was one HOT book! It's sweet and very erotic, I'm very happy he stop the wedding before it happens, i was on pins and needles at end. But over all it end very well, now I don't know if you have plans on writing a story for his brother Luc, but i would really like him to end up with Leigh's friend Aria. I'm praying for you to come up with his story, can't wait for the next one.#VannaKing

Before getting married Leigh asks her parents for one last wish, to have 3 days of complete freedom in Vegas. While there she meets Bron, a club owner and gorgeous alpha, looking for fun. Neither expected to fall in love. This is an insta love story full of twists, complications, an arranged marriage and a sex filled journey of discovering what Leigh wants. The chemistry between Leigh and Bron was on fire. They couldn't keep their hands off each other. Will Leigh go through the arranged marriage ...more

Can I rate the first half of the book a 4 and the second half a 3? I loved the first half of the book. I didn't want to put the book down. The second half was still good but Leigh started to annoy me. She was young but so weak. Toward the end when she continued to let people walk all over her and make excuses for them. Then turns around treat Bron like poo. I wish she would have stood up to her parents instead of trying to please them. They were in the wrong. Regardless I really did enjoy this b ...more

A good enough story. It's packed full of cliches and possibly a bit too much sex (and some of that sex is quite unpleasant to read because a woman loses her virginity in a really bad way). The writing is good, the characters are easy to empathise with. It's just that nothing blew me away. And I feel like this is one of those stories which will fade into the background a bit. Quite forgettable. ...more

Quick Read

I enjoyed this book. It’s a quick read. I like OTT alpha males. Bron is definitely OTT, but he’s not a jerk. Leigh is the virgin, and there’s an interesting twist regarding her fate. Overall, good story and quick. I would have liked it even better if it had been longer, but that’s just me.

I normally don't read short stories because I feel the story always seems rushed, that being said, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book flowed nicely. It did. It seem rushed, it was exciting and a bit of a nail biter at the end there! I really enjoyed this ...more

What is it about an older, alpha male that just makes your toes curl? Leigh was a great female character as well. Their chemistry together is amazing and the story just flew by! Story was really well written. I can't wait to read more by Vanna. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book. ...more

This book was very interesting. I felt bad for the girl because of everyone taking her choices away. I liked the hero because he was aggressive but not to the point of hurting her. They made a really good couple.
