Reckless: Renegades, Book 1 (Unabridged)
A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix's image means everything. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, her years of polish and hard work are finally about to pay off. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker who makes her realize how much living she's sacrificed for her success, one touch is all it takes for Lexi to turn reckless.
Jax Chamberlin has been screwed over by gorgeous gold-diggers one too many times. Though he runs his own stunt company, all of America knows his Hollywood face even years after he's given up acting. Finding a woman who doesn't plan to use him as a stepping stone to success is virtually impossible, so when the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a chance at a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more.
But Lexi's got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle. And if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he's afraid the fantasy woman he's falling for might just end up like all the rest.
Warning: This audiobook contains uber-hot sexual encounters. For safety's sake, listen along with pitcher of ice-water. Or…wine…
This was my first Sky Jordan book and I was hooked. Loved the characters and the sizzle between them. A great book.
Detailed and intense love scenes
Reckless has some of the most detailed and intense love scenes I’ve ever read or listened to. That said; they are also very long, so long, to the point while listing I found myself tuning out. I thought it was a fluke during the first scene; when I lost track, kept having to rewind to listen again. Then it happened again; then again. I only found my attention wandering during the love scenes; especially the first one. Maybe, if I had I been reading instead of listening, I would not have had an issue.
The premise behind the story was cute; although, I found it strange. How and why would a Hollywood A-lister hurt any business; it just didn’t make a lot of sense to me. I get her thinking he was bad for her business when she didn’t know who he was, but once she found out it didn’t make sense.
Overall, it was a cute story and I enjoyed it. I am giving it 4 Boundless stars...Sara
