Fearless, (Reckless Book Two), Priscilla West

Fearless, (Reckless Book Two), Priscilla West
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I’ve read several of Priscilla’s books now, enjoyed them all though some have been better for my taste than others. I found the first part of this duo was good, but a bit lacking in the deep dramatics I’ve loved in her other books, and I wasn’t convinced of the romance between Jax and Riley. I’m still not feeling that in this book.
Jax is now having nightmares, bad ones and has become very introverted. The band seem to tiptoe round him, Sky telling Riley he’s had problems in the past like this, but not as bad. Riley is desperate to help him but doesn’t know how. I can understand that – they went through such a lot at the end of the previous book, and seeing his father and being rejected and beaten up by the gang is bound to have an effect. I struggled though with a few things. The doc in the hospital – they really wouldn’t come out with that phrase “ well, he’s alive” ( or something like that) and then on top of that indication he was seriously ill he’s out in the following day….Then the Condor incident – that was just too cheesy and twee, and really made me squirm. I felt as if I was being spoon fed “look at this bird and how he recovered and compare it to Jax” and it was…sorry – just Horrible, nauseating, I feel squirmy just thinking about it now. Thankfully there wasn’t a lot of that. My main criticism of this book is it just didn’t seem to be going anywhere, and then from being so traumatised that everything between him and Riley was unravelling one truth puts everything right? That was anti climatic for me after all the build up throughout the book.
It sounds as if I didn’t like it and that’s wrong, I enjoyed it but I’m more used to Loving Priscilla’s books than just Liking them, and felt disappointed in this one. It does all wrap up neatly, there was plenty of heat, but for me it just felt a very superficial read and I couldn’t really get lost in it as I did with the wonderful Wrecked and Rescued.
Stars: Three, a good read, just not one of her best for me. .

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.

    Thanks for a truly ‘realistic’ reviews. These always mean more to me than the gushers that overlook what could have been done better. 😉
