descriptionI enjoyed this one for the most part. It was a fairly quick read and I very much like this author's style of writing. It's very readable and has a nice flow to it. The pace was quite fast. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. That said, I also thought it was a tiny bit underdeveloped and head scratching at times. The whole "society" thing is still a bit cheesy to me, and I found the entire plotline surrounding that aspect a bit confusing. I didn't find this particularly angsty. T

5 reckless stars!! I love Jewels and Tyson’s love story!!

This is book two in the Bennett Brothers series. It can be read as a stand alone.

❤This is Jewels and Tyson’s love story...

Jewels ~ ok so my ex was a total asshat. My best friend decides a blind date is the way to go. Why not?!?! Well he is gorgeous so that’s a plus. Until...he opens his mouth. NO THANKS I’m not one to be another notch on the headboard....

I just loved the mix of country and city in this book. Jewels has left her hometown of Three Rivers when Trevor announced they were getting married without even asking her. Jewels moves in with her cousin Mandy who talks her into a double date with Tyson Bennett who is really full of himself. Tyson is not used to being tongue tied with women but Jewels does that to him. Tyson is part of an underground club and he is close to being in charge but he doesn’t know how to have Jewels and the club. Je ...more

Author: Emily Bowie
Genre: Romance
Publication Date: November 21, 2017


Where do I start?
I had such high hope for this book! I was so excited when I received an ARC and I felt that way for the first 40% of the book.
I will say this... I loved Jewels. She's bloody independent, she's down-to-earth and real.
Tyson ..hmm... I'm not sure about him. I didn't really get to "know' him that well as a character. He's 'suppose' to be an alpha male- All hot a

Loved this story of Tyson and Jewels.
He was swoony, sweet, seductive and melts the hearts and panties off every female he meets.

This was my first book by Emily Bowie and now I will definitely read all of the others that she has written.

Highly recommend this series. And I can’t wait for the next book!

Jewel and Tyson's story is one of love coming when you least expect it. Jewels had graduated valedictorian from high school and her boyfriend demanded that she marry him. She packs her things and leaves as quickly as you can. A year later she's living in same town as her cousin and her cousin talked her into a double date. Her date is with Tyson. The date didn't go great because he's so nervous. He's determined though to have her as his girl. Will he be able to break down her walls? Will she rea ...more

Recklessly Forbidden is the second book in Bennett Brothers series and can be read as a standalone.

Jewels and Tyson isn't the love story you expect. They basically come from two different worlds. Jewels is a girl that doesn't like being in the spotlights and that has been hard living on her family's farm in Three Rivers. When her boyfriend gives an announcement the night of her graduation she decides it's time for her to get away. Tyson comes from a rich family, is good at what he does and sleep

Jewel leaves her hometown when a scandal comes out. Jewel meets Tyson a player a one night stand type guy but the attraction is sizzling. Tyson just can’t stop thinking about Jewel and is determined to make her his. Drama and page turning short story that in the end works out exactly how it should. 4/5 stars ****Reviewed by Sweet & Spicy Reads a voluntarily Advanced Reader Copy of this book ****

After leaving her hometown and moving to the city, jewels sets out to make the best of her life. When she meets Tyson there is an instant connection she feels toward him, she fights it. Tyson is a player, but he feels something different towards Jewels and sets out to make her his. When their worlds collide will they be left standing together or torn apart? This was a good read, my only complaint is it seemed to jump around a bit and left a little confused, but by the end I had it all figured ou ...more

One thing I am loving about this author is her keen ability to provide a story that is all around lusciousness. From the characters - Gotta love a feisty chick that finally finds her way into standing up for herself in the end blended with a guy that has to make some hard decisions before he sets his priorities. This is not only a great love story it is also filled with suspense and twist and all kinds of freaky goodness.

The characters this author creates are complicated yet human with all of t

Such a great book filled with everything I want in a story...humor, suspense and sexy times! I loved Jewels and her independent side, not wanting to make past mistakes, but always putting family first. And Tyson, for realizing what he wants and going after it.I'm loving this series and can't wait to see where the author takes it next!

Loved it! This is the second book in this series. I fall head over heels in love with Tyson and Jewels. I love the banter between these two. This isn't like just any love story there's so much that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This can be read as a standalone but I suggest that you start with the first book in this series. I simply can not wait to read more about Brody and Cassy. Keep up the amazing work girl! I highly recommend this series. It's a MUST HAVE!!!

Just when you thought the Bennett boys couldn't get any hotter......they do.

Jewels has been living in her brother's shadow her whole life, one event causes her to leave Three Rivers and take up in the city with her cousin to make a life of her own. She is a no nonsense, loner until Tyson Bennett walks into her life and turns it upside down.

Tyson Bennett is used to getting what he wants....and what he wants is the fiery red head who seemingly wants nothing to do with him. But that's all about to

"For a man who, on the outside, seems so reckless with hearts and so forbidden to love, he seems so recklessly forbidden in my own heart. But being here with him, knowing him, he is slowly becoming the forbidding fruit my heart wants most."

Oh, this couple had such delicious banter and tension throughout, the suspense was upped from the first book, the twists and turns were dizzying, and engaging. I couldn't put it down...super hot, exciting, and watching these two fall was intoxicating. My sleep

I was sooooo excited for Jewel’s story. The taste we got of her at the end of Recklessly Mine had me itching me it. And I loved Jewels!! She was fun, she was spunky, loyal, and loved her family. She left, no, she ran from Three Rivers years ago running from her problems. She returns when her brother needs her. I think that shows us who she is.

I really enjoyed Tyson. He’s quite a mystery. He tries so hard to come of cocky and full of himself. But Jewels makes his brain freeze. I like it when see

Recklessly Forbidden by Emily Bowie a forbidden five-star read. This is book two in the Bennett Brothers series it could be read as a stand-alone but I would recommend reading the series in order, as you do see characters pop up in each other’s stories. This time it’s the turn of Tyson Bennett the master blackmailer and some would say manipulator, he is a man with many facets and he thinks he’s set on the path of his dreams until something shiny catches his eye.

Such a fun and relatable read! Emily Bowie is an EXCEPTIONAL author because she remember who she writes for her — her readers!

Quick note......
This is the second book in the Bennet Brothers series. I would recommend reading it as a series, however it can be read as a stand-alone. Reading the series in order does give the reader some of the background and characters that are included in these first two books.

The Bennett Brothers series was my introduction to Emily Bowie as an author. I enjoyed Bo

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of this book.
I hadn't read the first one so everything and everyone was new to me. But still could read it before you read book one as it can be read as a standalone.
I enjoyed this book. I love the characters and how they were written.
Emily Bowie is a new author to me and I'll definitely be reading more of her..

Jewels Rogers meets Tyson and she is instantly turned off. He checks out their waitress and says lame things. After one double date she has had enough.

Tyson Bennett’s date with Jewels didn’t go how he expected it to. After a second chance he decides a little blackmail will get him what he wants…

Add in family obligations and a secret society and the two of them are in for a bumpy ride…

I always love reading new authors as their stories are often fresh and very intriguing. Emily Bowie caught my attention with the blurb for Recklessly Forbidden and I dove into this story anticipating lots of angst.

It took me a bit to warm up to Jewels. Maybe if there had been a little more background information about her, I would've taken an instant liking to her, but I sort of had to make a few assumptions to really get into her head. I realized there was some underlying drama, and couldn't w

When I read this book by Emily Bowie, I read it not knowing this was a second in a series, and thought it was a great as a stand alone.

She had to escape that life and live in a big city where she was known by everyone, and d

This is the story of Tyson Bennett and Jewels. Tyson has the whole alpha male thing going on, and it is soooo Hot. And with Jewels being determined to stand on her own, and claim her independency, the banter between them is entertaining.

This book was enjoyable from the start and although the chemistry is there the question remains as to whether they will actually get it on.
There were some well thought out twists which were refreshing.

This book has it all: a great romance, suspense, and hot sex scenes. I enjoyed the story and the way the author creates her characters.

Even though Jewels and Tyson go through a lot, I wanted there to be a deeper development between them. I felt, as a reader, we missed out on watching them come together as a couple. I liked the side story of saving the ranch and all, but I wished there was more detail about the two characters together, as well as the part each played in the rest of the story.
