For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.
I'm a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.
I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.
Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce.
What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice.
My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her.
4 Star Review by Ashley
This is the book I've been needing. Equal parts sexy and swoony. Lex Martin has a way about her writing that makes you root for her characters even when they're at their worst and that is the case here.
Holy smokes was Tori a mess. A wonderfully passionate and fiery mess. My heart went out to her for what she witnessed and lived through. Was struggling to overcome and get her life back on track. When her sister plops an opportunity in her lap she knows she needs to take a chance. Too bad her first meeting with the broody single father is less than friendly.
Geez Ethan was rough around the edges. Rightfully so. Life hadn't dealt him the kindest hand either. Simply put, he was struggling with all the hats he wore. He needs another seven hours in the day. I loved how despite how strapped thin he was that he made time for his kids. Seeing them together just melted my heart. Add Tori and her unique brand of awesome into the mix and it was a match made in unexpected heaven.
That is until a blast from both of their pasts comes back. And not in a good way. To say it threw them for a loop would be an understatement. However, Tori is a fighter and so is Ethan. They went to battle. It was ugly and heart wrenching and had me riveted. I absolutely devoured Reckless. Ethan and Tori's story is a second chance, not just at love but at the living the life they want. There was attitude and humor and steam (holy hotness) and drama and family and so much love.
