RECKLESS is the third book in the Viper Force series. Though it will stand on its own, it is better if you have read the previous books to know the overarching storyline of the Maestro.

I’m going to sum up this review in two words: READ IT! Read the series; read the book. The suspense, the action is non-stop from the injection of potassium into Haylee’s IV until…. Yea, I’m not giving that spoiler!

Along the way, Jax and Haylee finally admit that those cookies she bakes, and he wants, have always

Buckle Up for Non Stop Action & Romance

Viper Force

Marie May gives us the third book in the Crescent Cove series Viper Force, Reckless, as former Seabees Jax and Kaylee try to escape and outwit the bad guy known as The Maestro. It's a fast-paced, thrill ride of a story, so buckle up.

The story picks up immediately following the end of book 2, Ruthless, with no catch up so somebody who hasn't read the first 2 books in the series might be a bit lost. But if you like lots of action with your sexy rom

Book three in the Viper Force a well written story with a great storyline. This is Viper Force, Haylee, a former Navy Seabee gunner's mate and Seabee Chief, Jax's story. There is suspense, drama, danger, murder, twists, turns,the Maestro who turns out to be closer than they know, and romance. I really did not see the Maestro being that person.

I've read several books written by Marlie May; she has done a great job at writing a good book; she is becoming one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of books her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Holy crap that was intense. I loved everything about this!! Jax and Haylee had off the charts chemistry. Smoking hot, heart meltingly sweet, and silly banter. Then you add in that they're total bad a**es?? Insanely good. This will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

This is a really good story and good addition to the "Viper Force" stories! It's well written with some great characters. I love Jax and Haylee! This one heck of a curvy roller coaster ride with twist, turns and action. This is a suspenseful story with some mystery, romance and humor. The chemistry and passion is a blazing. I look forward to reading more from this author. ...more

Good idea but needed more

The storyline is great but it needed to be edited a little closer.
the one thing bothered me was the way it seemed to lose timed with jumping from present to hours or days unaccounted for and usually during interesting times in which you want to know how did they go from this situation to that one

real interesting

I had a great time and was highly entertaining with each turn of the page. The characters are well developed and engaging and the storyline flowed smoothly from beginning to the end. Will Jax and Haylee survive a killer? The chemistry is undeniable between them throughout the pages.

It was a good story

Military romance where both are in the military are hard to find. That is what I was looking for. The story was good. But I think the author got too carried away with all the life threatening drama every three pages.
