Reckless A Renegades Novel Skye Jordan.

ARC supplied by Netgalley.

I love romance, but…it has to have a good storyline, with lots of “ups” and some “downs” that have me on the edge of tears. Reckless didn’t quite do that, but came close.
I loved Lexi – she’d struggled to make it to the top with her couture wedding dress design business. She had a very poor background, and had clawed her way up inch by inch, and wasn’t going to take help from anyone, even her best friend billionaires daughter Rubi. Independence was so important to her, and she was so proud that everything she achieved she’d done alone, by sheer hard work. Then there’s Jax…cynical ex actor, he wanted a more normal life, so gave up acting for the stuntman business he runs. Jax annoyed me at first, cynical, assuming everyone wanted to rip him off, he treated women as disposable sex objects, but I learned more about him and realised those women who went for him used the sex – and sex- to get what they could from him I began to see where he was coming from.
The attraction between him and Lexi was incredible, sizzling tension and steamy erotic sex, but they both had such emotional hang ups that I wondered if they could ever trust anyone. Jax though is the epitomal sexy, tattooed, biker bad boy, and Lexi needed to be seen as whiter than white to protect her business, someone like Jax hitting the press as her boyfriend would do irreparable harm to her. Jax wonders if, like all the other women in his past, Lex is really just covering up the fact she wants to use him as a quick stepping stone to success. Of course things happened that mislead them both and fosters their fears, and there’s get-togethers that sizzle off the page, and then tears as emotions run high and everything seems different from what it is.
Its a great mix of emotions, a good storyline and the sex scenes were sensual and erotic but…somehow it didn’t quite translate to a five star romance for me, but it was well worth reading, and I certainly lost myself to the story for a while.
Priced at £1.97 for 280 pages/607kb its excellent value for money. It won’t join my keepers list but was fun for a one off read but if you favour a lighter romance this may be one you want to read and re read.
Stars: four

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
