Book Description

“Hotter than hell and a lot more fun. Skye Jordan’s writing sizzles!”
–Elisabeth Naughton, New York Times bestselling author

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 to threaten her carefully choreographed life.

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. Lots 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 novel contains uber-hot sexual encounters. For safety's sake, read along with pitcher of ice-water. Or...wine...

1.0 out of 5 stars oh myy October 8, 2013

I could get past the spyware app written by a former model. I could get past the texting and insta romance. I could get over the bizarre backstory of Jax getting messed over (out of a stunt contract) by a woman he was dating. I could try and overlook the "I can't be seen with you" text from Lexi which should have ended the story (who would want to be with such a mean and flawed woman). What I couldn't get over was the oddly fabricated and ineffective point of tension that was suppose to keep the hero and heroine apart.

Romance books are far from believable, and are often meant to offer a total escape. That said, the storyline should make sense and the point of contention that causes drama should have an element of believability. It this case, it made absolutely no sense whatsoever that Lexi couldn't be with Jax, and that any fashion house would shun her dating him (or have a say). Most publicity is good publicity, so it would have actually been a huge plus for the added media attention.

I can't recommend Reckless, and it was a book I had to give up on while reading.

Lexi needs a man to mix it up a little. She's all about being in control and having her life and career in order. That is until Miss Perfect meets hot Biker Boy. This is one man who can shake her life up, and rock it hard, too. I loved him from the cover, and I loved him from chapter one. Super fine and sexy, rugged and tatted, Jax is more than that rough-looking bad boy image. He's also one very sweet hero. The kind of man who needs care and wants love really badly, and I love those heroes. I do love me a needy hero.

Who can resist a man who's open and ready to love? Jax very much wants a girl who will love and respect him, treat him right, and not walk all over him. Now, don't think he's a wuss. He's not. He's just used to being used, and I felt for him. He's had his share of action, lots of beautiful women, always attracted to their flashy exterior, but now he's going to turn it around and find himself a woman who can be sweet and kind and not use him for gain and ulterior motive.

How he meets the heroine is interesting and fun and playful, kind of secret, with some flirty and naughty texts exchanged with a stranger. It also allows him to feel that he's getting to know this woman first and not be distracted by the exterior. For her part, this is exactly what Lexi also wants. She wants to be anonymous, to have a little fun with a hot stranger, all without risking involvement. But you know how that's going to work out! These two are damaged, or jaded, in their own ways, and you know they are perfect for each other. There is a bit of going back and forth, letting doubt creep in and sabotage a good thing. Is Jax's image bad for Lexi's career? Does Lexi want something from Jax, to use him? That sort of thing.

What happens when Hollywood's bad boy in hiding meets little miss prim and proper? Hotness. Hotness happens. Lots-and-lots of hotness.

Reckless is the first book in Skye Jordan's Renegades series and was unputdownable. Be warned, you will not want to put aside Jax and Lexie's story for anything. I had things to do yesterday, most of which did not get done simply because "one more chapter" turned into another, which turned into another, and so on.

Not only was Reckless a smokin' hot read, but both Lexie and Jax were very engaging characters with issues they needed to overcome to make their relationship work. Jax (who happened to give me a major case of the swoons) is an actor turned stunt man who has been screwed over one too many times. He has trust issues out the yin yang and certainly isn't looking for more than a roll in the hay. Did I mention Jax is beyond smexy and quite the dirty talker?

"We've got all night to explore the many different kinds of orgasms that exist. And no, baby, they're not all the same."

Lexie is a haute couture dress designer who hasn't had a vacation day in years. On her flight to the biggest business meeting of her life, she sees Jax. He's everything she wants but nothing she needs. She can't stop thinking about him so using a bad ass app her friend, Rubie, designed, she contacts him anonymously. Sparks fly between them and I fell in lust. Lexie knows Jax is no good for her and could do damage to her career but what would one night with him really do?

Reckless was off the charts hot and I fell hard for Jax. *fans self* A lot of time in contemporary romance I'll find myself liking but not loving both of the main characters; that wasn't the case here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful! September 12, 2013
By csw
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was awful! It was like the author just sat down one day and said, "Hey! You know what would be fun? Writing a book!". It was terrible. The plot, the character development, the pacing....everything. Cheesy and definitely unrealistic. I know that this a romance novel and no it's not reality but still, the story needs to be somewhat realistic. Rushed, poorly written, and just over all terrible. I am definitely angry I paid $2.99 for this book and would definitely like a refund.

More About the Author

Sometimes fun. Sometimes naughty. Always romantic.

I am a New York Times Bestselling Author writing under the pseudonym Skye Jordan for my more ... sexually heated ... works.

My Skye Jordan novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don't let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don't get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They're about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.

And, yes, even love. Because even as Skye Jordan I'm just a happily ever after kinda gal.

Thanks for reading!
