5* Book Review of Reckless by Priscilla West

Summary: Everything about him warned me to stay away.

I’d seen bad boys before, but he had it all and more. The rippling muscles covered in tatts, the piercing eyes hiding dark secrets, the silky voice that could make a girl come with just a whisper . . .

He was exactly the type of guy that would get me in trouble, but when he jumped off the stage, inked skin glistening with sweat and breathed his seductive words into my ear, I couldn’t resist the temptation.

It was supposed to be the best one-night stand of my life, but fate didn’t let it play out that way. Things happened. I got upset. I got hasty. And worst of all, I got reckless.

After that disaster, I thought it was the last I’d see of him. But what I didn’t know was that I’d started something.

Something that could shatter the very thing I had worked so hard to protect.

I should have known back then that the most seductive things in life are also the most dangerous.

Priscilla West has done it again!! I absolutely loved Wrecked and when given the opportunity to read Reckless, there was no way I was going to miss out. I loved loved loved Reckless and am hanging to get my hands on number 2. Addictive, fun and intriguing, Reckless had everything. With moody Jax the lead singer and a crazy accountant in Riley, the duo cause a lot of ruckus and fun on tour.

Twenty-five year old Riley Hewitt has been certified as a travelling accountant. Waiting on her new assignment, Riley heads to a pub with her co-worker, Jen. In a dive of a bar, they are instantly curious when “The Cocks” are announced doing an impromptu performance on stage. All the women swamp to the stage and the girls fight their way to the front.

Riley and Jen get separated and when a siren starts singing, Riley carries on, drawn to his voice. She has lost her shoes, her dress is torn, but still she makes her way forward. The Siren’s voice has everyone in a trance. Staring at the vision, Riley locks eyes with him, caught in his gaze like a tractor-beam.

When the performance is over, the Siren jumps off stage and heads towards Riley. The women around her go crazy, but still he heads to Riley. He whispers in her ear and walks away. Riley is suddenly the target of all of the other furious women around her.

With the invitation to meet the Siren backstage, Riley goes to see the rock star. Only when she gets to his door, two blonde bimbos are blocking her way. The Siren lines up the three women to compare, Riley is humiliated and embarrassed. When the two bimbos are gone, she leaves HIM hanging with need.

Monday rolls around and with her new assignment, Riley is ready to face her new work schedule. She gets the surprise of her life and her life will be changed forever. Touring for two weeks with this band is going to be a challenge and not just because of the budget cuts she needs to make. Fighting every step of the way, the band have their own rules and no concept of a budget.

As time goes on Riley starts to enjoy herself and gets accustomed to the rock lifestyle. The bandmates accept her as one of their own and slowly things are looking up. Will Riley get to her target in time? Will her secrets come out that she’s kept hidden deep inside? What will happen at the end of her two weeks?

With the dark, tattooed and mysterious rocker added in with a feisty accountant that is determined to get what she wants, Reckless is fabulous. The fun, excitement, luxury and secrets hidden around every corner, Riley and Jax are one duo that can’t be missed. I was definitely left wanting more and the ending, OMG, I need book two now.
