Description from the publisher:
Everything about him warned me to stay away.

I’d seen bad boys before, but he had it all and more. The rippling muscles covered in tatts, the piercing eyes hiding dark secrets, the silky voice that could make a girl come with just a whisper . . .

He was exactly the type of guy that would get me in trouble, but when he jumped off the stage, inked skin glistening with sweat and breathed his seductive words into my ear, I couldn’t resist the temptation.

It was supposed to be the best one-night stand of my life, but fate didn’t let it play out that way. Things happened. I got upset. I got hasty. And worst of all, I got reckless.

After that disaster, I thought it was the last I’d see of him. But what I didn’t know was that I’d started something.

Something that could shatter the very thing I had worked so hard to protect.
I should have known back then that the most seductive things in life are also the most dangerous.
Cliffhanger Warning
Reckless - Book One of Two
Reckless 2- Book Two of Two (Coming October 2014)


This is the first book in the series and they do need to be read in order.  The next book will be available in October, 2014.

Riley meets seductive, rock-God, front-man Jax.  It is supposed to be a one-night stand of epic proportions.  It doesn’t work out that way.  She walks away from the bad boy thinking that was the last she would see of him.  Fate brings them back together.  She was reckless when she walked away the first time; which way lies the greater danger now?

This was the first book I have read from Ms. West.  I loved it!  She has an in-depth understanding of the psychology behind human actions and she brings it out with artistic sweeps of her literary paint brush.  “I’d never seen a man so savagely gorgeous.”  I read that and I had to sit back and think about it.  It doesn’t matter if you prefer blonde hair or black, blue eyes, green, or brown… imagine what “savagely gorgeous” means to you.  I immediately thought of Tarzan, chiseled muscles, lean, and primal.  Isn’t all of that a yummy thought?

Beyond being beautifully written, the story itself was amazing, unique, and full of surprises.  There was no “formula” in this book as happens in a good many romances.  I loved how I was constantly kept on my toes and could NOT guess what was going to happen next.

This book does end in a cliffhanger – and one hell of a one, at that!  I promise you do want to read the book, but if you hate cliffies, wait until October when you can jump that cliff immediately.  Meanwhile, I’ll be counting down the days.

Ms. West, thank you for writing such a wonderful escape from reality.  I hope to read more from your backlist soon, as well as getting to read RECKLESS2 when it releases.
