I love you too much to hate you…

Angelica Treviño was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen.
I wanted to make her smile, but I had no idea when she did, she’d steal my heart.
Sunset eyes, waves of golden-brown hair, cute little butt…
I’m ready to meet the family and put a ring on it.
Instead, I’m on the wrong end of a gun, her older brother threatening to kill me.

Gah!! I was so excited to see Deacon was getting a story and it was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!!! If you are not avid Tia readers, you got glimpses of Deacon in both Wait For Me and Here With Me (which were both incredible and you need to read them too)! Reckless Kiss was perfection! It was a gripping fairytale filled with mystery, suspense, and family loyalty.

From the first kiss, Deacon knew Angelica was it. But years later when they were ready to settle down meeting her family did not go as planned.

There’s something about Tia Louise novels that both take my breath away and give me life! Reckless Kiss did both several times as I read Deacon and Angel’s story. From the very start I was completely lost to the story. I never knew what was going to happen, but I just knew that I needed Angel and Deacon together. Their chemistry was electric and charged every single page! I couldn’t put their story down and I wanted it to last forever at the same time! This story was! Definitely one-c ...more

This is an absolute must read. I had such a hard time putting it down when I had to step back into the real world. I loved every second of it. The characters were some of her best and I love all of her characters. This forbidden love/family feud story is so well written and the hea was one of the best. I can't say enough good things about this story. Definitely read it!! ...more

Reckless Kiss, by Tia Louise, is a stand alone, forbidden love romance. This book had the feel of The Hatfields and McCoys, as far as there are two warring families, for reasons no one is even sure of anymore. But true love is stronger than any misguided hatred. They will find a way to make things right and to be together forever.

Prepare to be swept away. Reckless Kiss rages in like a fierce storm and sets fire to the soul. Deacon and Angel are a beautiful tragedy that long to have so much more. Louise lets emotions do the talking and the characters are just along for the ride. Powerful, unpredictable and unforgettable will take your breath away.

I DEVOURED this book. Deacon and Angel are steamy, hot fire. Reckless Kiss takes you on an emotional journey of a mysterious family feud, forbidden love, and overcoming hatred/prejudices.

Deacon says it best. "It's a good omen. It's like us - I'm the raw ingredients, and she's the color, the music, and the flavor."

I love Angel's strength and her steel backbone. Despite her brother trying to control her, she stands tall and holds her ground. I love independent, strong heroines that can hold their

It can only take a moment. The meeting of that person, the one your heart meets, and will never let go. Nothing else will matter if this connection is real. You can come from different walks of life, you can have family telling you no, you can have any force fighting against you...None of that will matter when the bond you formed is tried and true.

Reckless Kiss by Tia Louise allows us to witness this

And their chemistry is Off. The. Charts!!! Are you ready???
Thank you so much to the author for gifting me an ARC in exchange for a review!

I have read a ton of Tia Louise’s books and have loved them all!!! This particular book was not my favourite of hers though. In saying that though, I have to admit I have been extremely distracted with my Grandson visiting. I found it hard to get into the story most of the time but there were times that I became more absorbed than others.
At some point I would like to do a reread and hopefully it will change my over

Oh my gosh!!! I could not put down this sizzling, Romeo & Juliet story that had all the feels, the perseverance and the angst as this couple cling to one another amidst the results of actions taken long ago. I could NOT put it down!

From the moment Deacon and Angelica met as teenagers, they were it. Theirs was a once in a lifetime love that captured my heart immediately. This author has the ability to pull me in from the first page but never as much as she did this time.

A steamy read seeped in secrets and drama, Tia Louise’s highly anticipated novel Reckless Kiss did not disappoint! Their families are enemies, but one kiss has the power to ignite a forbidden love affair. Deacon and Angel’s love must battle many obstacles. However, when an argument results in an accident, Deacon sets course to unearth the truth to heal past wounds. Will the past repeat itself, or will their love be able to rise above the hurdles? Such a good novel!

Deacon and Angel met when Angel first moved back to the United States from Mexico after her mother's death and there was an instant connection. But Angel's family made her promise to stay away from him since there was a bad history between their two families. So from there they kept their relationship a secret, which was easy when Deacon was away at school and later away for business. But now he's ready to finally make Angel his officially, no matter what obstacles

I have learnt that the hero and heroine have already been in a relationship for years when the book begins. The beginning of a romance is the best part of it for me so if they are already together, what will I look forward to, then?

I was completely and utterly consumed by this book! It's a forbidden love between Deacon and Angel. Their grandparents had been friends long before but had a falling out and the two families declared each other enemies. But Deacon and Angel vowed to be together, no matter what. Their story is beautifully told. I couldn't put it down, it had me on the edge of my seat. And super hot loves scenes!! Intense, angsty, suspenseful, and just an amazing book! ...more

Reckless Kiss is a forbidden love story that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster, a tale of a mystery family feud and overcoming racial prejudice and hatred. A modern day version of Romeo and Juliet.

Throughout this story, I was on the edge of my seat as I hoped for Angelica and Deacon to get their happily ever after; they were perfect for each other and their chemistry leapt of the pages. This was an emotional, romantic and heartfelt read that ticked every box.

'Reckless Kiss' by Tia Louise is a Standalone contemporary romance novel. One look at the blurb of this book and I was hooked!

Deacon and Angel have the most beautiful love story ever! They met when they were teenagers and from the moment they looked at each other , their destiny was set. Both of them knew that they were soulmates and I loved the way they supported each other. They kept their relationship a secret and went their separate ways

What’s this book about? (I'm trying to give as little spoilers as possible)
Angelica and Deacon weren’t supposed to fall in love, but they did. She made a promise never to see him again, but she did. Her brother told him never to see her again, but he did. There’s nothing that can stop them. Or so they think.

This is my first Tia Louise read! I picked it up because the cover was just so addic

I was totally captivated by this heart-pounding, poignant, and steamy forbidden love story. When Angelica's mother died, she left Mexico to live with family in Texas. The moment Deacon saw the sad, beautiful girl, he wanted to make her smile. Even tho they are from completely different worlds, they have an instant, and powerful connection. When Angelica's family warned her to stay away from him without explanation, she didn't listen. They continued seeing each other, and t

You're that part of me I'll always need...

Deacon is one of a kind. All he ever wants to do is spend his life loving Angel and making her happy. Angel fell in love with Deacon when they first kissed. She was only a girl but she felt fire in her bones and felt her heart was going to burst out of her chest.

Even with many cards stacked against them with their families feuding for years, they remained steadfast and true to each other. Deacon and Angel would not let anything or anyone interfere with t
DNF fairly early on. Writing style is not for me. Everything is too cutesy and overly poetic.

“She takes my breath away, just like she did that very first day years ago. I’d just turned fifteen, I was leaving for my first year at boarding school. I thought I was happy to go, and instead it turned into the longest year of my life. I lean against the open elevator doors, holding them apart. “Hey, gorgeous.” Her pillow lips part in a smile, amber eyes crinkling at the corners. “Hey, handsome.” The tip of her pink tongue touches perfectly white teeth, and the cutest dimple appears at the top of her cheek. Reaching out, I catch her upper arms, pulling her against my chest.” 0 likes
“Come here to me.” I lean down and press my lips to that little spot just below her eye. What the hell are dimples anyway, and why are they so damn adorable? Her lips are on my cheek, and I feel her nose wrinkle. “So possessive.” 0 likes
