"How did you get in here?"

That's not what you want to hear when you're staring into the sea-green eyes of the hottest man you've ever seen. Yet I suppose it's a fair question, considering I'm an uninvited stranger standing in Boone Mason's kitchen.

If you think that's bad - just wait. It gets worse.

This charming and wealthy playboy, who can't pay his bills on time or find his way to the grocery store (but we all have flaws, right?), is sweet. Confident. Playful. He's almost perfect. And, to make matters worse...

He's smitten with me.

I know what you're thinking. You're rolling your eyes. You're assuming this is some opposites attract situation - or that maybe we can be friends who turn into something more.

How can this be a bad thing?

Well, it's simple. I'm not the kind of girl you fall in love with. Just to be sure, the universe reminds me of that in an unforgettable, in-your-face kind of way.

I might have broken into Boone's house, but I won't let him break my heart. I won't break his either. There's too much on the line to be that reckless.

Reckless is a stand-alone romance filled with lots of heart and heat.

Slow Burn

I am a huge Adriana Locke fan. This book starts a little slower than usual but it has an amazing slow burn. The heroine is totally relatable and Boone’s “you make me want to be a better man” love is totally swoon worthy. It’s what all women want to hear. This book gave all the feels with the rollercoaster of emotion. Live me some Boone Mason!

Also-narrators were phenomenal! They were able to pull out that Savannah accent without over doing it. Panty melting for sure.

Don’t miss out!

Struggles lead to the HEA

Jaxi has had a rough life. Nothing good ever stays for her. She needs a restart on her life and it's going to be in the form of a cush nanny job in Hawaii, but first a stop at her cousin's house.

Boone is the playboy, or so everyone thinks. He's carefree, or so everyone thinks. He's a lot deeper than everyone thinks... or so he thinks.

Due to a chance encounter, Boone and Jaxi meet. Due to trials, tribulations, and twists, they end up in a relationship.

Boone is the ultimate in swoon-worthy men and Jaxi is the person who needs that the most. They have a ton thrown on them. Can they admit their feelings, make it through their personal issues, and end up with a HEA?

Wen and Stella did an excellent job with narration. They draw you in and make you want to listen to their story.

So good


This audio is so well done!

Boone Mason. He is one of my favorite book boyfriends ever. Their meet cute is my favorite. Their relationship is the sweetest. Adriana does an amazing job with this book in the continuation of the series of the Mason Family.

One of my favorite parts can’t be shared for fear of spoilers. But gosh. Boone’s affection for the heroine is adorable.

Jaxi is such a wonderful heroine for Boone. I love her character so much. I adore about Adriana develops her characters so well.

Sigh. Another wonderful book by one of my favorite authors.

I love Boone

I could not put this book down. This series is so great. Boone, Jaxi and Rosie are a great family and seeing them learn to love and trust each other is great. I just wanted to read this story because it’s part of a series and written by Adriana Locke but Boone and of course Rosie are up there one of my favorite people. Adrianna Locke did not disappoint and now I need Oliver’s story and Wades. Jaxi and Boone were great and seeing how they met was great.narration was wonderful

Amazing book and audiobook!!

And there’s a reason Adriana Locke is one of my favorite authors. She’s gives readers real people with real life issues. Jaxi and Boone are an amazing story. It’s unexpected and real. It is honest and beautiful. Jaxi is a broken person from her past. Boone is the youngest in a family of 5 brothers. Random meeting, surprised situations kept me wanting more. I loved watching the story develop and fall in love with them. I loved Boone’s growth and Jaxi realizing she’s worth love!! My favorite line from Jaxi: It turns out that great shoulders, a sexy back, and an excellent smile aren’t my kryptonite. It’s respect. Thanks Adriana Locke for writing books that make us feel!

The narration was so well done!! Loved Wes and Stella!

Adriana Locke slays it again

Jaxi and Boone's story starts off where Reputation ended. We discover why Boone got the phone call. It is a true to Adriana Locke's small town family books. Jaxi is staying at her cousin's house and falls for the neighbor. Of course there are other things that happen along the way, but I don't want to spoil it. It has it laugh out loud moments and will melt you heart in others!

The narrators did a fantastic job (audible) I absolutely fell in love with both of them.

I swooned for Boone, Jaxi and Rosie

Reckless is book three in the Mason family series, though okay as a stand alone, I recommend reading books Restraint, Reputation and the Relationship Pact as you have met most of these characters in those books first. This books starts with an adorable meet cute of Jaxi accidently breaking into Boone Mason's house. Their chemistry and banter are amazing immediately. Boone actually swoons over Jaxi. From there the story grows through some unusual twists and turns until we meet the amazing Rosie, Jaxi's 4 year old niece. Rosie almost steals the show from Boone and Jaxi. Listening to the three of them fall in like and love was amazing. Throw in adorable cameos from Momma Siggy and brother Wade and a bit of mystery from Hollis Hudson and this book delivered a delightful and unexpected continuation of the Mason saga. I can not wait for Relentless, book 4 and was sad that while i have pre-ordered it, there was no blurb so I could see if I get to listen to Oliver or Wade next. The only slight hesitation for me was Wen Ross's uneven southern accent. In his moments of trying to speak as Boone it was almost too much and a bit distracting.

Adriana Locke is fantastic and you will love the Mason's even more after listening to or reading this book.

This was amazing

Get ready for the Boone Swoon! This was amazing! A series of unfortunate events brings this couple together, but they were meant to be.

Both of the narrators did a wonderful job bringing Boone, Jaxi, Rosie, and the Mason family to life. If you are a fan of the series or romance in general I highly recommend this audiobook. I thought they both did a wonderful job with the narration and the characters.

If you loved Boone as a supporting character in the other Mason books, you will love him as the leading character in Reckless. He is everything you would expect from him, funny, charming, caring, a little immature at times, but overall a good guy. He knows when to be responsible and how to get things done, he just doesn't always want to. Jaxi on the other hand has not been dealt a great hand in life, but she hasn't let that get her down. I really loved watching their relationship develop. This reads as a standalone, but it is the 3rd book in the Mason family series. Each book focuses on one of the 5 Mason brother's (you should read them all IMO). I love the Mason's and love spending time with this family and getting to know each of the brothers. Their mom Siggy is a gem and fully of wisdom and good advice. She also doesn't take any of their crap. I love her!

This is told from alternating points of view from the two main characters. They are opposites, but that is what draws them together. Jaxi has had a hard go at life, people have not been kind to her unless they want something in exchange for it. When things finally seem to be looking up for her with a nannying job in Hawaii on the horizon, tragedy strikes and her entire world is turned upside down. Fortunately, Boone Mason is there to swoop in and save the day. He doesn't want anything from Jaxi, he just wants to help her in her time of need. They kind of jump into their situation with reckless abandon without really knowing each other, but life throws Jaxi a pretty big curveball and Boone has the means and ability to help her. They don't rush into a romantic relationship right away, which I appreciated, despite their attraction to one another. Jaxi has some baggage to work through and Boone, who is known to be a playboy, is willing to give her the time and space to build trust in him and their relationship.

This took me through all of the emotions. I had tears in my eyes at times, was laughing out loud from the banter between Boone and his brothers, then my heart was breaking again, I was angry for Jaxi and the crap she had to endure, and then I was smiling again. But Adriana did not let me down, she knows how to write a story and this wraps up in the best way. I truly loved this story and I hope you do as well.

Loved this small town romance!

Boone Mason is one playboy that I couldn't wait to see who brought him to his knees. When Jaxi comes to town and accidentally breaks into his house, he never expected for her to knock him on his butt! Their meeting the night Jaxi broke into his house had me laughing out loud. These two had great chemistry and Boone was such a stand up guy with how his stepped up for Jaxi and Rosie. This story was sweet and heartfelt and swoony. Exactly what Ms. Locke does best. Great story!

The narrators did a great job bringing this story to life. I really enjoyed listening.

Throwing stars at this book like confetti

This book was, sweet, funny, scorchingly hot and just everything that I didn’t even know I was looking for in a romance novel. These characters were so well created and the push and pull before they worked things out was fantastic I loved it. This is a book that I know I will be listening to time and time again

Boone is the best!!

Reckless is the 3rd book in the Mason Family series and what an amazing read!! I love a book boyfriend who melts my heart and goes above and beyond to make his woman feel loved, cherished and just everything to him. Boone was exactly as I hoped he would be. The meet cute between him and Jaxi is so unique and their own, and the relationship they build from friendship and instant attraction to something more, had me hooked. Jaxi's past really impacts on her present and Boone has to work hard to both show her, and make her believe, she can be loved and deserves a HEA. Boone and Jaxi's story is sweet, fun and heartwarming. A definite must read/listen and my favourite book of the series so far.

I read the book first and loved it, listening to Wen Ross and Stella Hunter bringing Boone and Jaxi to life, made me love their story even more. This is definitely an audiobook I'll be returning to again and again. I'm going to need a regular Boone fix!!

Heart and heat in spades

4.5 stars I forgot how easy it is to get lost in an AL book. But this quickly reminded me. Is there a more fun meet cute than an accidental B+E? This really does have a tonne of heart and a sprinkle of spice. The close family dynamics just never miss when this author does it and I really enjoyed this. If you want swoon, feels and fun? Pick this up. Plus the narration is perfect. I volunteered to listen to a complimentary copy of this. All opinions are my own.

Sweet story

Cute, sassy and simply a sweet addition to the Mason family and crew. I loved that there really wasn’t any drama and the H/h only had the usual misunderstanding with the happy ending. It’s your basic insta love story with the cutest 4 year old too!
