Reckless: Priscilla West

**ARC copy provided by author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

Holy. Shit. 

I recently read Wrecked by Priscilla West, and although it was a good read, it pales in comparison to this one. This book was so many things all in one.

I loved the witty banter, the chemistry, the humor, the romance, all of it. It is hard to give this one any less than five stars, but I just have to give it 4.5 stars. The author has done a fabulous job crafting a book that was both relatable and still a (somewhat) fairy-tale romance. I loved reading and watching the realtionship between Jax and Riley grow and develop, it wasn't an instantaneous thing, it took a while for them to like each other, and to finally act on it, instead of just hopping into bed with each other after one day and then subsequently falling in love. But that ending! How could you leave me hanging like this!?

I liked that for Riley at least, we got a good background. Her ex is an ass, but I'm glad that she was portrayed as a strong woman, who, even though scarred, is still keeping on. Jax was an ass at times as well, but once we got a glimpse of his background, I'm sure you all felt as I did, and as Riley did, like a class-A bitch.

Jax was such a dimensional character. He had so much going on. He was hot, sexy, smart, and caring, even though he acted like he didn't give a shit. I liked that he was protective of Riley, but realized that she was strong as a person without him. Jax cracked me up with the shit he did to get Riley to try to leave him alone. And no, of course it didn't work. She just fired it right back at him.

The author did a great job at keeping things pretty light, even with some heavy subject matter. This book had me laughing out loud at some of the antics that Jax, Riley, and the band got up to. All in all, a fabulous read, and one I would recommend to romantics out there.
