My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love, love, LOVED this anthology; all four novellas were fantastic reads. I already adore one of the authors featured in this collection so I was super excited to read something new form her but the other three were new to me so I was looking forward to reading their work too. I think it’s safe to say I have found another three new authors to love and I definitely want to read more of their stories.
Layla’s Chance by Mika Jolie was such a wonderful read and a great story to kick of this anthology. I loved Layla and Chance – oh my gosh he was so hot!!! As always this author completely captivated me by her amazing writing and characters. I forgot that I was reading a novella at times because of how full the story was, I actually didn’t want it to end I was so wrapped up in Layla and Chance’s story!
Dirty Martinis by P.M. Carson was another great read. I loved reading Rachel and Drew’s story and with a lot of people meeting via online dating now I thought that this was a story that felt real to life and I could imagine the story unfolding the way it did in real life.
Into the Deep by Kylie Stewart was a fun read and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. There were some really good and unexpected twists and turns that constantly had me guessing what was going to happen. I loved Grayson and Gemma and together I really did think that they made the perfect couple!
The Spy Who Kissed Me by Sharla Lovelace was a really great read. I loved that although similar in character to the main in Layla’s Chance it was completely different. I loved the humour in this story and it certainly made me laugh a few times.
Overall a fantastic 5 star anthology that I would highly recommend!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4 stand-alone stories.
4 authors I’d never previously read.
Taking a risk? Yes.
A risk worth taking? Yes
Reckless is an anthology of 4 novellas all about taking a risk and acting a bit reckless in life. All 4 are very different stories and I loved them all. A brilliant introduction to 4 brand new authors.
Layla’s Chance by Mika Jolie tells us the story of Layla who is disillusioned with life and heads to Martha’s Vineyard to spend her 40th birthday alone. There she meets the much younger Chance, famous rock star and they instantly hit it off. In this story we go through Layla’s journey as she fights with herself over to do what’s sensible and what her heart wants.
Dirty Martinis by P. M. Carson tells us the story of Drew and Rachel who had been carrying out a torrid online love affair and finally meet in person. Will sparks fly in real life as they had online?
Into The Deep by Kylie Stewart tells us the story of Gemma and Grayson. When Gemma moves back home after a failed marriage she meets Grayson (who she had a crush on back in school) when she views his house. This story has the added bonus of some light BDSM.
The Spy Who Kissed Me by Sharla Lovelace is a romantic suspense story. Ava is a lawyer working for a crooked boss, Dominic is an ex spy who is trying to bring him down. This brings them together with explosive results.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love anthologies where I’m introduced to knew authors. Some I do know and love and some are new to me and have been added to my must read list.

Each one of these stories were captivating! Each story had a different troupe which I LOVED. There were no two the same. These authors gave you a little bit of a taste of everything. I loved the strong female character’s and the men that couldn’t resist them.

Each author has their own unique writing style and I love discovering them in this anthology. Each story will suck you in until the very end. They are the perfect fast reads and I completely devoured it in one sitting!

Reckless: Anthology four- amazing five-star reads. I have read two of the authors before and adored reading them again, it made me want to pick them back up and go back though their novels again, the other two I enjoyed but not quite as much. I know that in these story’s you will find at least one that will be worth the price of the anthology for you, probably more if I’m honest. For me the stand out story was Mika Jolie Layla’s Chance, it could be as I’m a sucker for a music story line, or it could just be the writing.

Reckless was a great 5 star read
We get four great novella’s from four authors. Some I was familiar with and others were new to me. All of these stories pulled me right in.

Layla’s Chance (Mika Jolie)
This was a great rocker read. Layla decides to go on an impromptu trip to Martha’s Vineyard where she meets Chance. She has no idea who he is until after they have a hot and steamy evening. When she learns the truth will she stick around? These two had such a connection, I loved it. I really liked Layla and Chance and I would love to see more from them.

Dirty Martinis (P.M. Carson)
Rachel and Drew met on a dating website. They both have the same type of job that takes them all over the place. They do a lot of sexting and skyping. When they finally meet in person things take quite the emotional turn. Will meeting in person ruin what they had or can they get a HEA?

Into The Deep (Kylie Stewart)
This was my favorite in the anthology. Older man younger woman. Gemma meets Grayson and they agree to one night only, but something between them causes them to want more. We also get some drama that could cause some issues for them. I loved Grayson, what a dirty talking hot as heck man. I want to see more from these two.

The Spy Who Kissed Me (Sharla Lovelace)
Ava is a lawyer who has worked her butt off to be a partner. When she is asked to deliver a package in person she agrees, while at the airport she discovers some news that makes her change her destination. Dominic is an ex CIA agent who is following Ava, she has something he wants. He quickly discovers there is a big attraction between them. They do eventually have some steamy moments. Will Dominic get what he’s looking for? Can they have a HEA? This is a thrilling read with some danger as well.

All of these stories had great characters that you connect with instantly. They all had their own characteristics and I had some LOL moments. We get some steamy moments as well. This is a great mix of stories. Thank you to Mika Jolie, Kylie Stewart, P.M. Carson, Sharla Lovelace for giving me four great stories to read. Loved them and look forward to reading more from all of you.

Reckless is group of four sexy and steamy stories by four different authors. This group of stories is hot. Each author puts their own spin of hotness into their story. The stories themselves are on the shorter side so they are easier to read. However, they are steamy, so I advise you to read in the privacy of your own home, not at work, or on the bus, or in the line at the grocery store. In your own home.

I really recommend this anthology. I will be looking for more by these authors since these stories have me wanting to read more.

5-Stars

Four romances by four different authors all in one! Each was unique and addictive in it’s own way. Reckless decisions that led to a whirlwind of events. I loved all the stories but my favorite was definitely Dirty Martinis. The main characters in each story were developed well. I felt like the story line in Dirty Martinis hit me more emotionally than the others with Rachel’s mom battling cancer. I highly recommend this anthology. You won’t be disappointed!

Fed up with the everything she takes off to Martha’s Vineyard for the weekend and meets a guy named Chance. They have automatic chemistry and she lets loose for the weekend.

Five Stars

I enjoyed reading these books. Each was unique and a little dirty lol. I really enjoyed Dirty Martini. That one was made for me lol. The authors did a really good job putting these stories together. They hit you with every point in a short read. The characters experience life changing moments. They grow and learn. You get a good feel of who the characters are and what brought them to that point in the story. I will definitely have to check some of these authors other works.
