Review: Reckless by Evelyn Montgomery




Published June 2019

Blurb: He’s rough, arrogant, sexy and irresistible as hell. The stereotypical ladies man that I swore I’d never fall for. He stole my heart once before when we were kids, and I promised myself I would never give it to him again.

One night, a few drinks and memories neither one of us could escape lands me right back to where it all started, or should I say ended. But when push comes to shove, will he be ready to hear the truth about our past and face the secret I’ve been holding in for over 10 years? Or will he run like I always knew he would? The reason why I never let myself get too close to him again. As they say, tigers can’t change their strips, and I won’t let him make a fool out of me trying.

She’s stubborn, hot-headed and has a temper worse than any woman I have ever met before – but damn it if that doesn’t just make me want her more. Like an idiot I let her walk away from me before, but hell if I will let myself make that mistake again. She’s mine, and I won’t stop until she knows it.

But moving forward means facing the demons in my past, the secrets I’ve never told her about that one night 10 years ago I planned to promise her forever and never showed up. A secret that has eaten me alive and kept me away from her all these years when all I have ever wanted was to hold her again. This time though, I won’t let go, and she has another thing coming if she thinks she is getting away from me that easy. As reckless as our love has been, I will never stop fighting for her. After all, her, me – that is all I know that is right in this world.

May be spoilers:

I received an ARC for an honest review. This is the 1st that I’ve read by this author.

Reckless has 26 chapters and an epilogue and is about Rex and Gwen.

They were each other’s firsts in high school. There was a lot of push/pull then too with Rex’s parents like they were.

I didn’t like that he used another girl to keep the spotlight off him and Gwen cause he knew her parents wouldn’t like them together.

Lots of push/pull, a lot more than I like. Slight om drama. Slight ow drama as that’s one of the reasons she was upset when she was younger.

I’m not really a fan of this one as it’s just a lot of pushing away on both ends. Too much angst for me, but that’s just my personal preference. I will say that it still kept me interested.

I do like we get to see flashes of their past. I really love the steamy parts.

Epilogue is a year out. They are married with a daughter. I gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars.  Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
