Publisher's Summary

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…

    Story
    "Exciting and sexy"
    What did you love best about Reckless?

    I loved the whole story from the very beginning. The plot was interesting and the characters complex but not complicated. I like the fact that the book is not concentrated only on the two main characters and their relationship. I admire their struggles and ways to reach their own goals. They are truly human beings like everybody else - with their strong and weak sides.
    The idea of the casual hook up is not unusual it the romance books, but I have to admit that in this book it was a bit twisted and added a new shade to this kind of experiences. The original idea made it more unique and I was captivated till the very end. I am sorry that it's already finished. I hope that the Audible will soon share the other books from this series (I'm not sure if they are already written).


    What other book might you compare Reckless to and why?

    I have no idea. I've read / listened to many romance books, but I can't really remember anything like this one - what makes it so captivating and unique.


    Which character – as performed by Piper Goodeve – was your favorite?

    The main characters - of course, but also Wes and Rubi. Piper Goodeve did a great job performing all the characters with different voices and intonations. I was never confused and listening to her narration was smooth and pleasurable. Male voices were masculine and sexy, female ones were flirty but sublime. Excellent job!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All the emotions were somewhere engaged during listening to this book. I was touched by the previous experiences of those two, I admired the friendships, laughed at some of the scenes and cried for the others. Really - great book.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for some romantic, sweet and tender story - you've got it! If you're fond of more sexy and hot romance - YOU'VE FOUND IT! If you're interested in s story with interesting plot and characters - THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU. Truly - you're always the winner ;-)

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Stunt Man Yummy"

    Two beautiful people just wanting to be loved for themselves and not their outside beauty. This one was good. It added some intriguing moments in hotel rooms that I enjoyed. It's a listen that your glad you used your credit for it. I actually purchased it due to reviews and it was a good buy. It got my interest and held it. I'll get book 2.

    "WOW! WOW! WOW!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES!!! This book was so good!! A different story line is always good and this did not disappoint! It was a great story that I can't wait for the next book. It is not a Trilogy or has a cliffhanger but you just know that there is another book coming to tell the story of other characters in the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the characters were good but I think Jax stole my heart!


    What about Piper Goodeve’s performance did you like?

    She did an excellent job!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Bring a fan because this story is so hot you are going to need it!

    "Sinfully Delicious Jax & Beautiful Strong Lexi"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was sinfully delicious :):) I absolutely love Lexi! She worked hard to get where she is and won't let anyone take that from her. Jax is Supper Spunky, so finger licking YUMMY !!

    Jax is a stunt man with a lot of connections in the film and acting industry. He comes from a family of nothing but actors and was once one himself. Unfortunately he has had his share of beautiful women and they have used him incessantly to further themselves in their career or to get something they really wanted. He is finally becoming tired of this and would really like for someone to love him for just him and not for what he can do.

    Lexi is the beautiful, blonde, heroine, a former model and currently an amazing wedding dress designer in Southern California. She has had a very difficult life and has worked her a$$ off to get where she is today. Lexi is very skeptical of any relationship, especially one with someone like Jax.

    The story starts with these two being dropped off at the airport by their very close friends, Rubi, Lexi's friend and Wes, Jax's friend. They are both flying to New York only they don't know this just yet.


    Jax and Lexi both fight their attraction for each other and have some ups and downs Plus some really Hot, Intense Interesting sex, all while falling for but not being able to really trust the other's motives. What a great start to new series :)

    Story
    "Great writing, immature characters"

    While the writing was excellent and engaging, the main characters (28 & 29) were unbelievably immature. Lexi is ashamed & embarrassed because she was born dirt poor in a dirt bag family. Jax grew up in a wealthy, cold Hollywood dynasty and was an infamous actor before quitting to become a stunt man. They both had good qualities and interesting careers that could have made Reckless a fun read. However Jax & Lexi spent too much time being self conscious, insecure and paranoid about what others were thinking of them. It's hard to care about characters who don't like themselves.

    "Not impressed..."
    What disappointed you about Reckless?

    This was porn on paper with no character development, weak plot, and sickeningly sweet narration. The characters were too perfect and their whining only made the plot even more irritating. The narrator's lullaby voice, with an edge towards pathetic whimpering, made me nauseous. I was looking for romance with heat and some solid writing. This was NOT it! What a waste of a credit.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    irritation and annoyance
