Reckless Kiss


One night. Limitless pleasure.

This is the promise I make to each woman who calls my number. With Esme I expected nothing different. I’d return to work the next day with a deep appreciation for her body, the sound of her moans, and a night of memories.

Except she was different than anyone I’d ever met before. She was mor

Leo is such a great character! And I really liked that the story was from his POV.
I still do not know the reasons I wasn’t excited with this reading, possibly it was not a good timing for us.... therefore no rating from me.

5 STARS FOR LEO!! Wow, Leo is one man that has all the sex appeal. Leo is the man that every woman looks for, he focuses on the woman in the bedroom. This story has all the feels and keeps you turning pages. This book is my first by this author and I am excited to read more by her.

Leo was a sure thing a guaranteed good time,he would give any woman he hooked up with a night to remember she would always come first,When a friend gives his name to a woman wanting to hookup he was ready and willing.

Waiting for his dates at the bar he would bring a book of his choosing for her to know he was the one. He would wine and dine them and then off they would go for the night to remember.

What he didn't anticipate was Esme she was unlike any of the other women he

My first read by this author and I am impressed. This author brought everything into this book from great relationships/dynamics, laughter, STEAM and suspense. I fell so hard for Leo's character as I loved his success, stamina, wit, persistence and loyalty. And Esme was such a well written character with so many secrets and so much depth. This book moved at the perfect pace placing all the pieces out there for the reader to try to put it all together and become an integral part of the story

Reckless kiss was a STEAMY love story between Leo and Esme. I was captivated by the complexity of these two people who shared an emotional and physical connection like none other. I loved their their amazing chemistry and how they understood each other on an instinctual level. Because when Leo meets and shares a life-changing encounter with Esme, nothing was ever the same again. The way they need each other, fulfill each other's greatest desires, share their vulnerabilities and at the same time, ...more

When I first read the description for this book, I thought it was going to be the classic story of a sworn bachelor meeting his one and only who changes his mind about settling down. Instead, we're introduced to our Hero, Leo, whose point of view we read for the majority of the story, who is a successful sports agent. He meets our heroine, Esme, in a bar when they come to a mutual agreement in how he will service her needs for the evening. Typically, it's a one time event for Leo, but Esme leave ...more

He meets his match who is so much more than he originally thought

Reckless Kiss is the first book in a new series by Alexis Anne and it is off to a great start. This is the story of Esme and Leo and is told from Leo's POV. They have a one night stand that he cannot forget, which is not normal for him. It seems Esme had left quite an impression on him but he did not think he would ever see her again. Well he was so wrong as he spots her again but this time not at a bar but at a business event. T

This book is part one of a duet. Meet Leo and Esme. This is supposed to be one night of fun, unlimited passion and the next day, a great memory. It is that but what happens when the characters continue to think about the other and wonder 'what if'? Add to the mix a third party who brings the two of you back together. This third party is Jeffery, Leo's friend. Now both men want to pursue Esme. Can you say complicated? Drama? This story ends on a cliffhanger but will be fun to read part two to see ...more

Compared to the Storm series, I felt this was one definitely more intense in chemistry and feelings. Sometimes, it came across as a bit too cheesy and unrealistic (hence the .5). The book had some suspenseful elements that is meant to build up to book 2. This book is written from Leo's POV. This book ends in a cliffhanger, into what should be Esme's POV in the following book.

Leo can't seem to forget Esme after their one night. When he finds her again, he can't help but want to know h

He believes he’s a good guy providing a service.

Leo is a sports agent that only does one time flings. He hooks up as a good guy good in bed. For someone who likes women, he’s got no clue about feelings and true emotional intimacy.

Esme is his latest one time thing, until she rocks his world.

Six months later, he’s helping his former college roommate Jeff woo Esme. Since their one night, Leo’s had a serious Jones for her. Mainly because she’s the total package an

I’ve loved all the books I’ve read from Alexis Anne, but to me this book was more of everything. You would think it was about Esme and Leo, but they are but a small spark in the fuse of a firecracker getting ready to explode and I am a tad worried about what is going to be left. I loved seeing Marie and Greg and Roman again but I want the next book to see what happens next. This was almost like putting the pieces of a puzzle together, but you can’t find the last piece. Counting the days until Es ...more

Great steamy read!!!

This is the first book in The Reckless Duet, and the story of Leo, and Esme. After spending one amazing night together, Leo, and Esme got their separate ways, but Leo can't get her out of his mind. When Leo's friend invites him to meet the girl he wants to date, Leo is surprised to find Esme, has caught his friends eye. Can he deal with his friend dating the girl he can't forget?

There is something to be said about elegant writing. The moment you read the first sentence, it hooks you right away. The scene doesn’t even have to be shocking. That’s how I felt reading Reckless Kiss. Yes, it has the steamy sex scenes, interesting characters, intriguing plot, and some mystery. Pulling it all together in a smooth narrative that kind of glides through effortlessly indicates an author’s writing talent. Reckless Kiss is a fascinating book and I can’t wait for the conclusion in Rec ...more

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.

Reckless Kiss is the first book in The Reckless Duet. This is the story of a hot and steamy romance between Leo and Esme. The characters are well developed and complex people. The storyline is well written but ends on a cliffhanger into the second part of the duet. This is a very emotional and passionate story with some drama involved in the form of Leo's friend, Jeffrey.
I read and reviewed a copy of this book with no obligation.

A quick enjoyable read.
I felt that the author had the ability to convey some depth to the personalities of the characters bringing a greater sense of reality to her story.
The writing draws you in and keeps you interested until the end.
The chemistry between the H and h is great plus their attitudes and events going on make the story even richer.

Wonderfully entertaining, this book captured my interest immediately. I loved the male POV via Leo not only because he was an beautiful character but also because the book provides a mesmerizing view of what the opposite sex goes through when dealing with attraction. Well written, this book will keep you entertained from beginning to end.

Alexis pulled me in with the Storm series but this one?? I'm completely hooked. I loved everything about this book and more. The chemistry was off the charts and you really got to feel for the characters. I didn't think anything could top the Storm series but I was wrong. Can't wait for the next book.

This book kept me on my toes. The little details make this book so much better. It was reckless of him to kiss her yet love he. She is dangerous and lovable at the same time. You cant help who you love. Both of them know that yet they are still together. Love the cliff in this book....

A sensual story of two souls Leo and Esme. Leo is one man that has all the sex appeal. Leo is the man that every woman looks for, he focuses on the woman in the bedroom. What he didn't anticipate was Esme she was unlike any of the other women he had been with. She was beautiful and blew his world apart. Ends on a cliffhanger and I cannot wait for the next book. 💋

Leo is a sports agent just looking to hook up with women. He's everything a woman could want in the bedroom. He meets Esme after a friend leaves a message for a date with a woman. The couple end up tangled in drama, mystery and secrets. This book ends on a cliffhanger and I am waiting to read the next one.

So apparently I'm in the minority here but I couldn't get into this at all. Leo was gross. I don't want graphic sex scenes between the H and random women. Just no.
