    3 StarsI am definitely in the minority on this one based on the ratings I am seeing. Everyone seemed to love this one and I am just in the "it was average" corner. It definitely picked up at the end...which is why I gave it a solid three stars instead of something lower, but it just wasn't enough to salvage the total for me. This wasn't a bad read by any means, I just felt like it was a little weak for me in certain areas. The vast majority of th...

    I have read every novel by Lex Martin and I loved them all. I know I’ll reread some of them one day. I couldn’t start Reckless fast enough and I devoured it. I loved every second I spent reading it. Reckless is so good! It’s an emotional, hot, beautiful and funny book that ends with a beautiful epilogue.I absolutely loved Tori and Ethan! Tori is feisty, genuine, passionate, kind, funny and loving. She’s a little lost at college and in rel...

    This book was so adorable. SO. ADORABLE. Ethan and Tori were a delight to meet and fall in love with and boy, did I ever fall in love. From the ovary explosion of the hands-on single dad, to the shock waves through my heart from the palpable chemistry sparking between Ethan and Tori, this book hit all my sweet spots and I sailed through it with a goobery smile plastered on my face.I mean, it wasn't all fun and games. There were some dramatic emot...

    4.75 ‘Worth it all’ StarsWOW.... Reckless was Magnificent! Seriously, Tori is up there with my all time fav Romance heroines! She was so genuine, so funny, so heartfully emotional and overall kickass. I adored her! And Ethan... Yes, the saying ‘Save a horse, ride a cowboy’ applies to a T here. This man was not only absolutely drool worthy, but so caring and loyal, he just stole my heart. And the kids... Arghhh, so freakin adorable! I love...

    "Whatever it is, I think I'm addicted."Well, this quote sums it up pretty well. I just couldn't put down this page-turner.Reckless is my first book by Lex Martin and she totally flashed me with this one. "I don't care that this thing between us could go wrong in a hundred different ways. I don't care that I could fall way too hard for him."OMG, I fell hard, harder, hardest. For Tori, for Ethan, for Mila, for Cody, for Logan. All of them are so ad...

    What I liked:?I liked the relationship she had with her sister.I also liked the relationship she had with the hero's kids. These kids needed someone that could be there for them since their father worked all the time and their mother was a harpy. I also like that the heroine never talk bad about his ex wife to the kids in fact she went out of her way to reassured the kids that the harpy loved them even though the harpy never showed them. I respec...

    Reckless de Lex Martin narra la historia de Tori ( hermana de Kat, protagonista de Shameless ) y Ethan, un nuevo personaje.Me da un poco de verguenza admitirlo pero desde que hace un par de años descubri a Lex Martin, cada par de semanas la stalkeo para saber si ha publicado algun libro nuevo, en la actualidad es una de las autoras que mas me gusta y nunca me decepciona. Simplemente las historias que crean son mi paraiso personal, siempre tienen...

    3 StarsOverall Opinion: Meh. I didn't find this all that exciting tbh. I know that I had a lot of other stuff going on this weekend to distract me from reading this quickly like I usually do, but I still feel like I wasn't dying to get back to it either. The h grated on my nerves at times, but the H and the kids were fun! Overall, I just didn't love it (but I also didn't hate it either) 🤷🏻♀Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Tori and...

    With Shameless being on the shelf of my “Top Reads Ever” I was highly anticipating this book and it definitely met all my expectations. I have come to know that anything Lex publishes will be amongst my favorite reads and top recommendations. This story is so full of emotions. Ethan is a single dad, overwhelmed by the demands of his ranch, raising kids, finances, and lack of time to stop and catch his breath. Tori is in need of a fresh start,...

    ***Actual rating: 3.5/5 Heart-Protecting Stars*** I start to wonder, if he’s that gentle with his daughter, maybe he’s the type of man who could be gentle with my heart too. Reckless is a rather light-hearted read for me because the story flows wonderfully with the author’s superb writing style and the characters are pretty lovable as well. The story follows a 23-year-old college dropout, Tori, who parties hard and has been dating an old...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UK I was really iffy about reading this since the blurb mentioned the Hero was going through a divorce and that's just not my favorite type of drama. In the end, though, I'm super happy I gave it a chance because I ended up loving these characters. They started out with this bickering type sexual chemistry but it quickly turned into something sweet and as adorable as a hunky cowboy can be. I really liked that we got to...

    I’d forgotten just how easy it is to be swept into the pages of a Lex Martin book.Ethan and Tori gave me feels of every degree. A heartwarming tale of second chances and new beginnings that I couldn’t inhale fast enough.

    Absolutely LOVED this story!!! 2am and my eyes are burning but I have a big dopey smile on my face 😊😊😊Ethan is the very best kind of BBF - HAF single dad, kind & honourable with just the right dash of alpha. I loved Tori and all her supposed faults. She was genuine, loving and just what Ethan needed. Her sass and humour made me LOL many times and her vulnerability made me want to hug her. So many funny one liners in this story, coupled w...

    ***ARC Provided by the Author and Give Me Books***4.5 StarsWhew. This was an emotional read. There was so much for Ethan and Tori. You wanted things to be better for each of them, you like them, you sympathize with them, and you want all of the good things to happen to them. You are angry at the things that happen to them, frustrated with them, there is some angst, and there are moments when Ethan shows just how much Tori means to him that just l...

    I am going to start by saying, incase you're like me and missed it, this is a true standalone spin off from Shameless. This is the story of Kat's sister Tori and I freaking loved it. Not only did we get a whole new story but we also saw a fair bit of Kat and Brady and caught up on their lives together.I absolutely love Lex Martin's writing and this story was so flawlessly written with so much emotion I couldn't put it down. I spent the whole book...

    4.5 Stars!!“Tori has a wildness about her, a level of honesty I’m not used to.”“For some reason, I want to remember every detail of this moment. How she glows in the moonlight. How the chirp of crickets swells in the meadow around us. How the scent of cedar and wet earth permeates the air. And, for the first time in years, how I feel alive.”“You make me come undone. From the moment you strutted into my house, you have occupied most of...

    I fell in love with Lex Martin's writing when I first read Shameless and experienced the emotional roller coaster of Kat and Brady's story. I couldn't wait to read another book in that small town, farm life world! Tori is used to screwing up and disappointing everyone in her life. And when she finds out that the man she actually saw a future with was a complete lie, she accepts that she will never amount to anything and is destined to be alone. W...

    RecklessBy: Lex Martin4.5 StarsAfter falling in love with the lavender fields in Shameless, when I heard that Lex Martin was writing a standalone companion, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! Tori has been on a sabbatical from men. Her past record with heart breaks has done her in. This last relationship was the one that hurt so bad. So, when her sister comes to her with an offer to get out of town and live by her, while being the nanny to ...
