From the Back Cover
Independent, stunning, and smart, Kell Jameson has the life she's always dreamed about. A partner at a tony Atlanta law firm that represents famous—if guilty—clients, she's far from her days as a lonely orphan in rural Georgia. But one frantic phone call will bring her back to the place she's spent years trying to escape. The head of her childhood orphanage has been accused of murder, and Kell is her only hope for freedom.
From the first moment Kell meets Sheriff Luke Calder, tempers and attraction flare. Ruggedly handsome and a stickler for law and order, Luke finds Kell compelling. Unfortunately, she represents his prime suspect. Forced to work together, they dig deep into the town's scandals . . . but Kell has a secret of her own. She trusts Luke enough to fall in love—but does she trust him enough to reveal the reckless past she's worked so hard to keep hidden?--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

The story is set in middle Georgia, in a small town about 3 hours south of Atlanta. Since I spent nearly forty years living in Atlanta, I was also impressed with the author's "sense of place and time". Indeed, another discovery as I began reading the aforementioned "Minority Leader" was that Stacey Abrams had actually attended Avondale High School in DeKalb County, Georgia - which was my place of employment during most of my time in Atlanta. Thus I can vouch for the authenticity with which "Reckless" is composed.
The story line is intricate and the characters vivid and believable. The story contains a powerful eroticism which is significant in the plot but does not overpower it. Although the book is obviously the first of at least a diptych (a factor which I sometimes resent, not wanting to be "hooked" into a series unaware) I will admit that this is well-done. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and look forward to many more encounters with this author.
Reckless was a good read, with well-developed characters and a nice amount of heat. The author and I seem to have similar taste in male characters. :) I'm looking forward to more from both Selena Montgomery and Stacey Abrams!
One of the best features of my Kindle is that I can, with a quick glance, determine how many pages remain, and usually I keep checking, eager to get to the end so I can proceed to my next pre-selected book. In the case of Reckless, I kept checking in the hopes that I wouldn't reach the last page. Endings are for funerals. Your characters live on in the hearts and psyches of your readers. I can't wait for my husband to start reading Reckless. I write, but he's the best literary critic I know.
You can't pigeonhole your books as Romance or Suspense. How about Life? Reckless is a tale about multidimensional characters caught up in multidimensional situations. Love does conquer, thank heavens. I use that as an explanation for my own, still going strong 56-year marriage that I can only describe with one word and it's not work...it's sex.
I'm on a Selena Montgomery/Stacey Abrams journey. Join me for some fun and experience some good writing.
There are some things I really liked about RECKLESS. First, it's one of those stories where a woman with a tough childhood comes back to her town as an adult to confront the past and solve a mystery, which is one of my favorite tropes. Second, Kell, the heroine, is a tough-as-nails woman who is a powerful attorney but still filled with some insecurities about her past that she attempts to compensate for by being cold and difficult, which is one of my favorite types of heroines. Third, the mystery is really good. It involves shady organizations, orphans, corruption, murder, and all sorts of other good stuff.
Sadly, the weakest part of this romance for me was, ironically, the romance. I really didn't care for Luke all that much. He wasn't great, he wasn't offensive, he was just there. I wasn't feeling the chemistry between him and the lead at all, and unlike some of the romantic suspense I read, where I find myself wishing there was more romance, I found myself wishing that there was more focus here on the crime.
I read the whole book and was interested in the outcome of the story and it was so refreshing to read a romantic suspense that feels so grounded in reality. But I would read this more for the mystery than the romance as there isn't a whole lot of romance and what there is isn't all that great.
Still excited to read the sequel, though! I understand it's about Fin! :D
