Reckless Romeo

Rate this book
She'd always been off-limits... And I'd never wanted her more.

Gorgeous, loyal, poised, and all grown up.

Riya Guliani had been a thorn in my side since we were kids, it seemed not much had changed.

Except for the fact, she was known in influential circles as "the fixer," and she was back in NYC to clean up a mess.

Mine.

Who cared that I was a little reckless?

I hadn't turned my father's million-dollar company into a billion-dollar empire by doing what was expected of me.

But sometimes the unexpected was exactly what we needed.

And I needed her in a way I never saw coming...

Another great hit in the Cocky Hero Club world. A friend to lovers that turned to enemies to lovers romance and two of my favorite tropes in one story. Loved this read. Great characters and a great storyline. Riya and Leo had great chemistry between them. Steamy read that will have your fanning yourself one minute and then laughing the next minute at the banter between the characters. Loved this story and I can’t wait to read more book in the Cocky Hero Club world and this author. Great read.

I read an early review copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Loving this series so far!

Reckless Romeo introduces you to Leo and Riya. These two are immigrants and family is everything to them. Their fathers became the best of friends, created a business, and provided for their families. Of course Leo and Riya grew up sort of friends when they were younger. Heck, they even hinted at having crushes for one another. Yet, they still had a fallen out - which is a pretty typical and realistic thing to happen to two people.

Low and behold, Leo has gotten himself into some trouble. Mostly in the public eye and somehow Riya needs to fix everything. I loved their reunion because it just brought up all those hidden feelings for them. Yes, they had plenty of sexual tension to go around. It was a much needed second chance at romance for these two. Oh, and what a way to bring these two families even closer to one another.

In the end, I loved this book. There was just so much to love for two workaholics. They made things work even though they had to deal with some drama. I can't wait for my next book in this series!

I'm not sure what Sienna Snow's ethnicity is, but I adore how she makes her characters' background so important, and family is everything. In Reckless Romeo, Leo's family is from Belarus, and Riya's family is from India. The two immigrant fathers bonded, created a business together, and even built a compound for both families. It was really terrific how Snow wrote these two families, who fought and made up but ultimately cared deeply for each other.

Leo and Riya have fallen out over the years, but now Leo needs her help desperately. Stakes are high, and the family business is on the line. She's created a high profile PR group, and she's there to revamp the Romeo's image. It's been many years but Leo is still blown away by her.

"Long black hair cascaded in waves around a face so beautiful that one forgot the intelligence behind the dark-brown, almost black eyes. And God help me. That body. Curves in all the right places. Perfect for a man to hold, to mold, to %#&$."

And Riya is no different. These two are explosive from the get go.

"Yes, he was hot, with his thick black hair and perfectly sculpted face. And that body. No wonder women threw themselves at him. What the hell was I doing?"

"Who was I kidding? He’d always had that sex-mixed-with-chocolate voice."

Snow masterfully gets these two childhood friends together and flirts with mixing the past with the present to knock down emotional walls and allow an undeniable love in. This is a family story at its purest. About forgetting the past and all the misunderstandings, and create a future full of fire and magic between two alpha personalities.

There's so much genuine emotion in this story, and Snow knows how to bring it right through the pages to get you in the gut. You might wanna knock Leo out sometimes for his behavior, but he's just as vulnerable as Riya is. Snow was able to write two scared workaholics who only needed to face their emotions to complete their love story started a long time ago.

This is one of the top Cocky Hero Club books I have read!

I am such a fan of Sienna’s work and it was so fun seeing Graham and Soraya again. Leo and Riya have this amazing chemistry from being family friends from birth, who even went through a stage of enemies. I loved watching their relationship develop throughout the book.

Of course, with any of Sienna Snow’s heroines.... you will see Riya is a strong successful “fixer” who you can’t help but root for.

I couldn’t help but fall for the Reckless Romeo! Well done! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book is a wonderful read. Sienna was a new author to me, so I wasn’t sure what to expect but damn this book was good. I loved the chemistry between cocky Leo and strong and independent Riya, then add in the rest of the family and their dynamics and I couldn’t put it down. I will definitely be reading more of Sienna’s books. I received this book as an arc for my honest opinion.

Reckless Romeo is a book that had me debating my final rating. Although I was hooked on this one and devoured it in no time, it wasn’t as deep as I would have liked. Things happened a bit too quickly for me, and I wanted more instead of the way everything seemed to happen instantly.

It was a fun read, one that was simple and easy to power through. It left me curious about the side characters, and I’m curious to see how the stories play out for the characters introduced throughout. I just hope the other stories have a bit more depth, as this had the potential to be a lot of fun.

All in all, this one had potential but didn’t quite deliver for me.

2.5 stars, honestly this book was not bad it was a typical na romance with arrogant billionaire and sassy love interest. what made this unique though was the addition of immigrant families (belarus for H and indian for h) and the bond between the two families which was great.

it could have been a 3.5 star read if we got more insight into leo and riya's childhood growing up and their relationship with their fathers growing up.

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I didn't know what to expect. This book is a fun and sexy read that is a great cocky hero book. This is a friends to enemies and back again and about how to souls can reconnect even after all these years.

Two families are brought together to do business and after living next door to each other they all become firm friends.
Riya and Leo were once childhood friends and they grew up together until she left town and now they are friends turned enemies.
Leo is an out and out player and he plays about one to many times and Riya is the only woman who can possibly fix the situation.
Riya is a a very independent woman who loves her job and is a total workaholic and she doesn't rely on anyone fro anything. When she is called back to town we have to see of Riya can fix this Reckless Romeo and his reputation or has he messed up too many times?
Will the past hold them up or can they both overcome everything that has happened?
(NO SPOILERS)

This author has written a great story about two souls reconnecting after all this time and showing how there love and emotions can still have an affect on each other. These two have sizzling hot chemistry and they have a strong connection after all these years and Leo is hoping that she will help him out. This author has written these two very deep and with the family secrets and emotions this book is a great read and is quite steamy and is a quick read and is a great installment in this series. Thank you to the author and the publishers for allowing me to read an early copy of this book. ARC provided in exchange for a complimentary honest voluntary review. This book is a great addition to the Cocky Hero Club Series and I cant wait to read the next book.
This book is expected to be released on 14th June 2020.

Leopold aka Leo once against has gotten in trouble with the tabloids as they have labeled him as a playboy and their favorite a "reckless Romeo" who loves to charm the pants off a range of females. His latest escapade through turned out to be with the wife of one of their potential clients and now his family business has a few of their more conservative clients wanting to pull out which would cause the business to lose millions of contracts. His father has constantly threatened to have him replaced with his sister or his cousin Jacob. Both of whom are happy doing what they are doing and don't want the company - not in the same capacity of job that Leo does. His father is on his last plea and has hired "The Fixer". The fixer is Riya who is an old family friend whom we are about to discover that she and Leo have this love/hate relationship going on. One of Riya's rules is never to get involved romantically with a client but will she be able to follow that rule when it comes to Leo and will Leo's heart start to soften and his cock start to harden as he finds himself seeing Riya more as a potential future partner rather than the like-sister he grew up with? Can Riya not only change Leo's image out in the public's eye and get her HEA or will Leo continue to live up to the label of "Reckless Romeo"? In Reckless Romeo we also got to catch more of Soroya and Graham Morgan - whom those who have read Wicked Bedmate by Jenika Snow will know as Jason's ex-girlfriend and Linda's ex-boss. Reckless Romeo was another good read in the Cocky Hero Club and stay tuned for more Cocky Hero Club books to come.

As with any Sienna Snow story it is 5 Stars. She is always a 1-Click author.
I loved how Leo and Riya went through so many different stages during the lives together, friends to enemies to lovers. It was fun seeing ‘the fixer’ fix his Romeo reputation. They were both strong characters. Sienna has to be known for her steamy sex scenes because let me tell you that she delivers plenty of that in this story. I always love her writing! Pick up this book because you will love it!

This was my first book by Sienna Snow and I loved it. Leo and Riya were raised together their whole lives, bestfriends and even though they viewed everyone else as family they never could see one another in the same light. Always hiding their feelings for each other until they cracked. It was such a sweet and sexy book. I loved every minute of it and highly recommend it.

This is a fun read, a friends to lovers, hate to love romance that almost goes off the rails because no good comes from eavesdropping. The sex is scorching hot and Mira and Neil are fun characters that add laughter to the mix as does Aunt Sandy and the sagesse of Soraya. The epilogue is lovely and this is certainly a feel good book if you need a pick me up.

MAN, this story was damn near perfect for me! It hit all kinds of right spots for me LOL I haven’t read a whole lot by this author before, actually, I think maybe just one other story and that was recently for another series. THAT story hit the spot just like this one!

There is one, not mayor but also not minor, point about the story that was lacking. In my opinion, if one of the tools or layers of a story is a couple’s past, especially one so deep rooted as Riya and Leo’s going back to their childhood, it is always best to show the reader that past on the page. Especially when that past defines the present. It gives the story a full layer of emotion that is integral to the dynamics of the leads and helps the reader understand their past better and connect to their story. That didn’t happen here. This story would have been off the charts had that happened.

The connection and journey Riya and Leo underwent in this story was sexy and passionate and very emotional. Some of that was because of the family connecting them but it was mostly their chemistry and great writing from the author.

Sienna is phenomenal at delivering strong, beautiful, female characters and I truly love that!

Leo and Riya are childhood friends turned enemies. Leo is a playboy through and through, but one huge mistake brings Riya back home to her family to fix it.

Tame the Romeo and move on is her objective. But their is so much attraction and chemistry that isn’t the easiest job to do.

One thing leads to another and Riya is charmed by Leo, but can she keep him? Or is he up to his old antics of love them and leave them?

This is a hot as hell, enemies to lover story that is sure to keep you turning the page!!!

Riya and Leo grew up together. Their parents immigrated to New York, became friends, business partners, living next door to each other and raising their families together. Leo the oldest Vaughan child, played his way through college and earned his name "Restless Romeo". Riya, the oldest of the Guliana's, became known as the "fixer", after her father died. Papa Damir hired her to fix Leo's reputation. This is their story. You really don't want to miss one word. Family, secrets, and emotions run rampant. I highly recommend this book. Another awesome Cocky Hero.

Sienna I love your kick ass strong female characters, and the hot men aren’t bad either. I wish there was more to Reckless Romeo. I needed more of their story. Either more of a back story of how these two childhood friends grew to hate each other or more of how these two worked to go from hatred to lust and love. It’s a good story but I feel I needed more to it. I love the characters and the secondary characters. You do write some steamy scenes. I do recommend Reckless Romeo.

description

I enjoyed this addition to the Cocky Hero Club. This is not my first book by this author, but this had a different feel from what I have read from her before. This was a lighter, made me laugh out loud (everyone needs a Sandy in their life), and had a great sense of family.

Leo needs a fixer because of the trouble he finds himself in and while his heart is in the right place, the media is not so kind. When he is coined the Reckless Romeo, Riya has her work cut out for her. Leo and Riya's lives are intertwined with a long history and traditions. They have known each other since they were babies and their families are the best of friends, so when Leo's dad asks for her help she can't say no.

The chemistry between Leo and Riya is that long-standing kind. It's there even when they deny it and still there when they figure it out. Sexy in a secretive kind of way. I enjoyed all of the outside influences in this book as much as the main story. They brought this sense of life to the story. Well written and enjoyable addition to the Hero Club.

Riya and Leo grew up together. But as they grew up, Leo started to change because of who he was hanging out with. Riya kind of misunderstood the situation and grew to hate him instead. It was fun to read their back and forth as they work together and get to know each other as adults.

However, I wanted more of Riya and Leo's relationship development. This was too short when suddenly, I realised the book already jumped their relationship to 2 months after they started their relationship. I like the plot story, but I didn't like how when they are already in a relationship, Riya still arrange Leo to go on dates to recover his reputation. All because they're putting up a front for their families.

All in all, this was an okay read for me.

'Reckless Romeo' is a great addition to the Cocky Hero Club I really enjoyed this mix of friends/enemies love story. The background of two families coming from different countries over 30 years ago meeting at the docks and being firm friends ever since was a nice touch to this book. Even as their businesses grew and the Vaughn's and the Guliani became wealthy they still stayed true to the traditions of the countries they were from!

"No, boy, you have asshole tendencies, but you aren't a natural asshole"


Riya better known as the fixer always in the control at work and in the bedroom and Leo the Reckless Romeo grew up together started of as friends with Riya always having a slight crash on Leo - as they got older Leo's dad warned him to stay away from Riya (think dad knew that Leo needed to sew his oats first at college) and so he did and the friendship they once had was no more.

Years later Leo is running the family firm but he is a bad of a man whore and his last exploit is about to make his father loss all patience so the only option is to bring in the Fixer Riya she is known throughout Hollywood for turning around the fortunes of people who are in need of PR make over. What she wasnt expecting was to still have feelings for her once friend Leo.

From the moment Leo sets eyes on Riya he has one objective make her his but thats not going to be easy when Riya is trying to fix his imagine. The chemistry is of the charts with these two and so you can see how it is near impossible for them to keep their hands of each other. Will Leo persuade Riya that she doesn't always have to be in control!

Leo and Riya have grown up together and at one point might have even be friends. Now as grownups Friends is the last thing you would call them. Leo is the stereo typical wealthy playboy. A big mistake flashed on the front page of the gossip rags has everything in his life in chaos. Riya is asked to come home and save Leo and “fix” his imagine. They have grown up together, lusted after one another and now it is going to take all of Riya skills to save Leo's reputation. Riya need to conquer the Romeo and his clean up his imagine and get out. There is so much attraction and chemistry between them make the job incredibly difficult. Leo hot and a bit cocky. Leo and Riya also have to navigating their big family dynamic.
This was my first read by author Sienna Snow. I will say she has a gift for creating and developing strong female leads. I have always loved the sense of Family in a book and Sienna Snow writes it exceptionally well in this story. I hope to read more Giuliani-Vaughn stories in the future.
This is one of the enemies to lover story that the sparks and steam just seem to leap off the pages at you. This was a 4.5/5 read form me. If really had everything you expect and need from the pages of the Cocky Hero Club.

A great start to the cocky hero club!

But then again what do you expect for the magnificent Sienna Snow.
Reckless Romeo is about Leo Vaughn when he lands himself in hot water by leaving a bar with an A-lister and a married one at that, that just so happens to be married to one of Vaughn’s business associates that holds a lot of different accounts. Papa Dimer has to call in the big gung to clean up the mess aka Riya “the fixer” five foot two of take no for an answer kinda gal.

Riya flew in from her west coast company back to her east coast one to salvage and preserve the Vaughn name well she came back to preserve Leo’s imagine from that bar mishap and he has exactly three months to do it or else daddy is handing the reigns to his cousin Jacob. But three month to do what Riya says proves to be a challenge at first and then it just gets better between them but the fire works and intensity between them is hard to ignore because those teen crushes are now magnified. Revelations, jealousy, secret relationship, emotional this book has it all and Sienna does a beautiful job connecting family together.

I received an arc copy for an honest and voluntary review.

Reckless Romeo by Sienna Snow is part of the Cocky Hero Club series but each book in the series can be read as a standalone. This is Riya and Leo's story. What an excellent childhood friends/enemies-to-lovers read. Riya and Leo were once childhood friends but due to a misunderstanding, Riya left and their friendship fractured. Now Riya has this great job where she is known as a " the fixer". Her PR firm is known worldwide. She handles Hollywood clients and clients who can't behave and need her skills to get them out of jams. Leo is always in the papers and its his father that calls on Riya for help to get him out of his latest trouble.
Riya and Leo have a past. There's this antagonism yet this connection and sizzling hot chemistry that about to blow up and outta control. Will Leo let Riya help? Will their misunderstanding be cleared finally? The twists and turns are intense and emotional. The story is written perfectly. Plus the cast of secondary characters add to the story. I'd love to read their story someday soon!

This was my first foray into the writing of Sienna Snow and I was not disappointed in the least. It was a fun, sexy and at times emotional read that I would certainly recommend for a lazy Sunday.

I loved the blend of different ethnicities and the way the main characters' background was set up, with both set of parents being immigrants and trying to better their lives and the lives of their families. I LOVED how both families have blended their lives together and build an empire but more importantly the bonds they build between them, where the kids from one family considered the parents of the other as Aunt and Uncle. It just lent so much gravity to Leo and Riya's relationship.

After staying away from each other for years, due to misunderstandings and the unexplored feelings of the past, Leo's very public mistakes and Papa Damir, bring those two Alpha personality back together and setting them up for an explosive collision. Can the Reckless Romeo change his public image to avoid losing his company and most importantly the respect of the people most important in his life, or will his need to rile Riya win?

Riya never let Leo get away with anything and gave as good as she got, if not better. But over the years, and after the loss of her father, she had to step in and take the roll of the one in charge. A workaholic to the end, she was closed off and only showed a carefully placed facade that never cracked under any circumstances.

I loved Leo and Riya's off the charts hot chemistry, but I would have liked to see them interacting more within the relationship parameters. I wanted to see them as a couple more in depth, but the book kinda glossed over it. I also would have liked a better look at their past that would have helped the reader understand and experience their connection and love better. There were some editing issues that slipped through the cracks but unless you're OCD about it like me, you won't notice.

Reckless Romeo was a very nice addition to the Cocky Hero Club and I would definitely recommend it.

Taming of the Rogue...

Leo and Riya are a feisty couple together in the boardroom and especially in the bedroom. Leo has the reputation of being a hot headed devil-may-care kind of man and Riya comes to his rescue to clean up his act. That's her job, she is a fixer of reputations for celebrities and men and women who don't "behave" themselves. Trouble is Leo and Riya have a very long history. They have known each other since they were kids and their families are heavily connected to each other. Now they are all grown up and definitely do not see themselves as a brother and sister relationship anymore. It takes all their willpower to keep their relationship professional. Well that does not last and their hot encounters with each other are steamier than a hot sauna.

I enjoyed this friends to lovers story and the angsty chemistry between these two. Another Winner Winner Chicken Dinner for Sienna Snow.
