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…

    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.

    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 ;-)

    The characters, the story,, and the narrating.

    Texting a total stranger and liking them for communication and not looks.

    When she decided to follow her own dreams and not follow what someone wanted her to be.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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 :)

    "Sexy hopeful love story"
    Have you listened to any of Piper Goodeve’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She did a fine job.


    Any additional comments?

    I am reviewing the audio version.
    I would call it pretty erotic. Not crazy over the top though. But there is a lot of sexy activity.
    Honestly, over all, I would say there was some that could have been left out.
    But there is a terrific story mixed in. So many times, authors forget the story part when they have a lot of sex.
    Over all, I would give the story itself 4 stars simply because there were parts I would have skimmed past in the paperback version.
    But the extra star comes from the fabulous narration. And narration does make or break an audio version.
    The story was a good one.
    Lexi is a strong smart independent woman. Talented and capable of managing her own life. She is a good friend. Willing to pay her dues to get ahead.
    Jax is a tough biker boy, stunt man. Has a crew of stunt men with a great reputation. He is hard working and determined.
    Both Jax & Lexi have trust issues. People in their pasts have taught them to never trust.
    But then, an app. Just a silly app. But it leads to incredibly hot, very public, text flirting.
    And that's just the beginning.
    They are both terrific people and you will find yourself rooting for them.
