Reckless is a delightful story about two people who aren’t looking for love but find it in a really unique way. It is the most original meeting of a couple that I have read in a long time! Lexi LaCroix spies Jax Chamberlin at the airport, where they are both catching a flight to NY. She is immediately intrigued by him and wants to get to know him. Lexi starts chatting him up by texting him…and she goes about it in a very cool way!!
Jax is the owner of Renegades, which supplies movies with stuntmen. Jax is done with women, he is tired of getting screwed over by them (which WOW, happens often). He doesn’t want anything to do with them. But he can’t help notice a beautiful woman at the airport when he gets dropped off. While he is waiting for his flight, he begins to get text messages from Lexi. Jax is intrigued that someone starts texting him at the airport. Texting between them become hot and pretty quickly. They agree to meet at the hotel…in the dark…so they can satisfy their need for each other. Once they leave NYC they both realize that they can’t stop thinking of each other.
Lexi is a wedding dress designer for the rich and famous in LA. She has dreams of taking her couture wedding line to the masses. She is overworked and stressed out. While trying to make a success of her business she has not put much effort into her personal life. She wants Jax desperately but doesn’t see how a stuntman in leathers and dirty boots can fit in to the couture business.
I was so glad that Lexi finally got her stuff together and went after Jax. I can totally understand her need to be successful…but I felt she was would have thrown away something beautiful.
Jax is a great character. He is strong, determined and a really great guy. He is also super HOT! I loved that he was willing to give Lexi what she needed to be successful in her business even if it hurt him in the process. Lexi realizes that she needs Jax more than she needs her dress line sold at high end boutiques. Together Jax and Lexi are beyond hot…I want to say combustible.
The ending was one of the best that I have read! I truly feel that Reckless is one of the best books I have read this year. It’s got an amazing story-line with two great characters. It is a must read for anyone that wants a good hot romance. I can’t wait for the next Renegades story…I hope it’s Wes’ story or maybe Rubi.
