New Release Book Review (& Author Giveaway): Reckless by Lex Martin

Title: Reckless
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: February 20, 2018


For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.

I'm a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.

I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him. 

Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce. 

What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice.

My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her. 

My Thoughts

Talk about opposites attracting!

Ethan was such a down to earth hero. He was a man trying to do his best to juggle being a single dad, working hard on his ranch and trying to keep his head above water financially.

Tori’s self belief has taken a beating. She has made poor choices with the men in her life and is struggling with other aspects in her life. She is stuck and doesn’t know how, or which direction, to move.

Ethan and Tori’s definitely rub each other the wrong way when they first meet. Necessity makes them agree to an employer/employee relationship. As time goes, attraction overrides their initial animosity, and both Ethan and Tori discover it’s not just about the physical but they actually like each other as people and learn they can depend on each other.

There are plenty of secondary characters with their own stories but they never overshadow Ethan and Tori. Ethan’s kids are delightful and you know the writing is good when an author can covey a child’s confusion and feelings in the context of divorcing and absent parents.

This book is well paced with a nice balance of romantic times, sexy times and dramatic times.
