You just couldn't make this sh*t up if you tried...

A hot man, a one-night stand. Five days in Miami, that was the plan.
Things went sideways real-quick.
How could what started off as a five-day girls’ trip have careened so quickly out of control?

I found myself in a fix.

Just a small-town girl from a boring little city, my life might have even been described as charmed. U

Hi Diva!

There honestly isn't one answer/explanation for how I came up with the story :-) It was just an idea in my head, that continuously shifted and morphed, with no real plot outline :-) As for the character's names, Garland & Camry, I completely made up. Autumn is just a name that I'd always liked. Lol. Thank you for your questions :-)

3.5 Russian Hottie Stars!!

Camry is a 26 year old divorced woman with a young daughter and engaged, yet for some reason has yet to set a date and is kind of dragging her feet. Garland is a very wealthy businessman who very much enjoys his extravagant lifestyle. Garland and Camry come from two different worlds and lifestyles, yet they work and they fall rapidly for one another, Garland’s eventual bond with Camry's daughter Autumn is heartwarming. The relationship between the main characters Garl

Congratulations, K. Marie you NAILED Wreckless Engagement! A definite five-star read. We must address the elephant in the room BEFORE the naysayers slam this amazing read!

So let's address the elephant in the room. One of the characters is engaged to be married so I guess technically one of the characters "cheated". Hint: its not Garland, the hero. Does that make it easier to read? Will you give this amazing story a chance? The engagement is definitely NOT what you think so keep an open mind and

Will review tomorrow. I am suffering a book hangover. Omg! I think this may be the best book I have read in all of 2017 & 2018!
Normally I start with the bad of a book. But this one?! Maybe you will run into errors. MAYBE! I mean, nothing is perfect, right?

I loved this story and thought it was well thought out and very nicely written. I was even more impressed when I discovered it was the author's first book!
Five ladies go off to Florida for a 5 day break. I giggled from the start at the moans and groans about travelling, as we all know what a pain it can be.
Camry is the main character, and teamed up with her cousin Marie, there's lots of humour and banter. Lauren, Camry's older sister, could be a bit of a kill joy. But there always has to be one!

I really liked this book because it shows that even when two people are from totally different lifestyles they can relate and find love! I was hoping for more of an explanation about John but I’m glad he is gone! I’m excited to see where the next book will go from here!! There are still questions that I hope will be answered in the next book but I really love how this book ended!!

I am normally not a huge fan of books with cheating, so In the beginning I didn’t care for Camry. I actually really like Garland, I’m not sure what it was about him, he started out as an ass, but by the end of the book, I loved him. I loved Marie, she was an awesome secondary character, I want a book about her! I think K. Marie did an awesome job redeeming Camry for me. All the questions I had while reading were answered, I like when everything ties together by the end! I can’t wait to read more ...more

Wreckless Engagement: The Russian Engagement Series by K. Marie

This is the debut book/series by K. Marie and for a first one I would say that it is a solid book. I have not been one to like this type books, but I found this one had me intrigued and eager to turn the next page.

The characters where defined and well developed with the timeline in chronological order so the events made sense. As I worked my way through the pages there were times that I had trouble understanding what was going on. Th

This was my first time reading this author and I loved this book! This book grabbed me from the the start. The Garland and Camrys chemistry is off the charts and undeniable. There are secrets and twists and turns at every stop in this story!

First, I want to thank K. Marie for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

Wreckless Engagement The Russian Engagement Series by K. Marie sure was a rollercoaster ride full of lots of hot kinky sex with a mysterious Garland. Never had I read a book that focused on sex more than the plot itself. Don’t get me wrong K. Marie can write some dam hot sex scenes with a lot of detail! But there is a point where the reader gets bored and wants to get on with the story itself.

GREAT STORY. When I read a book it's important that the story keeps me interested and is not predictable. Wreckless engagement did not disappoint! I could not put this book down! The story takes you on a roller coaster ride with plenty of curveballs and drama. Garland and Camry are the two main characters, who goes on an erotic journey that will have you fanning yourself from the intense heat between the two of them. The chemistry is hot and steamy, and not overdone or distasteful. There's also ...more

What a debut novel!! K. Marie has twisted a tale that leaves you begging for more. The relationship between Camery and Garland is hot and steamy one minute, playful and hilarious the next. But then you have the suspense and wonder of the back story. The sex scenes are super hot and very tastefully written. She has several supporting characters whom I love to see enter the chapter, specifically Camery’s cousin Marie and Garland’s cousin Viktor. So if you want a sexy, suspenseful love story, this ...more

With the storyline, plot, detail and content I truly felt like I got two books in one!
It left me wanting more ... more from this author, more from the characters - I simply could not get enough! #Imagreedyreader

I was riveted by the intense and suspenseful plot.
I was swooning over the hot alpha Russian known as Garland Vidov.
I was held in suspense with the way the story would play out.
I was questioning my own morals as I found myself cheering on the "bad boy" whom was no

So before I start I have to say this is not normally the kind of mafia books I read. I love when they show the ugly side of their world. This one,however, does not. This shows the loving supporting husband and how he treats his wife which is nice sometime. I'll admit it.
I will say I'm not the biggest fan of how Garland and Camry met. I also realize she thought it was gonna be a fling at first but soon turned into something more. In all honesty, John had reasons to be furious at her. Everything

When I decided to read this book, I thought it was going to be different. This is the first book I have read from K. Marie and it was alright. Much longer than I thought it needed to be. I feel like there was so much dialog at times that could have been cut out or shortened. Or this could have been made into 2 separate books. At one point in the book I was like OK lets get on with it already. So if you like longer books that are a little dr

The relationship between Camry and Garland kept my interest. Camry cheating on her fiancee leading to a relationship with Garland, even though he is bad. The plot unfolds with hot steamy love, murder, and a strong woman. Even though I thought there were too many sex scenes to focus on a balanced read with two points of view which seemed a better fit with two books. I will admit that the book is suspenseful and kept me on the edge, but some parts especially the excessive sex scenes seem to outwei ...more

An engaging read with good characters and story. Camry is flawed and has issues and this is shown during this book. She is not a damsel in distress or a virtuous princess awaiting her Prince. She is a single mum with a fiance at home while she goes on a girly weekend away. Enter Garland, a massive bump in the road she did not see coming. He forces her to examine her life and the relationship she is currently in. All the while ruthlessly perusing her.
She is the salvation he didn't want. Yet he ca

There was a lot to like about this, wealthy Russian alpha meets single mom girl next door, steamy, sexy fun, right??! This book has that, plus suspense, plus a whole lot more. BUT, you need to get through the first half of the book which was not well paced, a little confusing at times, and just ok for me. I promise, once you get past the first half of part one, you’ll enjoy the read slot more. There lies the second problem for me. This is a l-o-n-g book, and it ends with a cliffhan ...more

This book was a roller coaster. Camry and Garland were great together, but they definitely did not have a typical romance. Camry started having sex with Garland before breaking off her engagement to another man. Once she was free to work on new relationship, things got more intense than either Camry or Garland was prepared for. There were also secrets. Boy, did Garland have secrets! Somehow, even though he wasn't always a good guy, I couldn't help rooting for his happiness. Parts of this book bl ...more

Garland is a business man and very much loves control, but something about Camry he couldn’t walk away. Garland and Camry had a few days of bliss till it was time to go. He wants her and will prove it to Camry. There are many factors that can cause pain for them as a couple. Long distance relationships aren’t easy and there could be a few secrets that need to ...more

I felt something was up when at 90% the story wasn't nearly finished...

Aside from minor editing errors, I highly enjoyed this book. Wonderful characters and great chemistry between the H and h. In a way the H reminded me of Naz from Monster in her eyes...but more passionate.

So on a girls' trip Camry meets the illustrious Garland, a mysterious businessman who sweeps her off her feet. She has an affair with him but they en

OK, I'm going to be honest I was not thrilled about the beginning of this story - I usually make it a habit not to read books that involve certain things and this one slammed me with it right away. But I am glad I held out because the story was good. I was compelled to keep reading to find out what happened in Garland's past, to John, to Vlad - I like the suspense, the guessing, the surprises. I was happy to have the comedic relief that Marie brought to the story, really helped to round it out. ...more

I am a first time reader of this author and I will definitely be back for more!! The excellent and descriptive writing/story line of this book will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat from start to finish. You get an extremely alpha male and a total bad-ass female who work well together. Intrigue, mystery, sexiness and intensity are just some of the things that make this such a great book!! If you haven't read this one yet, get to it now.

Two thumbs up for this amazing book. I didn’t realize until after having read this book that this was the author’s first book ever written. Five stars for this fantastic book and congratulations to you on your achievement. I was a bit opposed to the main character being engaged however I quickly got over it. I could not put this book down and I found myself reading throughout the night and well into the next day. A must read book and highly recommended.

An avid reader, K. Marie fell in love with books when a good friend bequeathed her with her very first Harlequin Romance novel.

An admitted sucker for happily-ever-after, she loves nothing more than a gripping tale rife with hunky heroes, feisty heroines, and lots of drama. Reading has always been her escape, but writing is her passion, so it was only natural that she’d one day create her own stea
