Reckless, an all-new swoon-worthy standalone romance in the Mason Family series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke is available now!
My Take: (ARC Review)
We’ve gotten to know Boone a bit over the course of the series as the classic baby of the family. Seemingly allergic to hard work and responsibility, he’s having fun sowing his wild oats and floating through life until he catches a woman sneaking into his house through the window who changes everything for him.
Jaxi has the wrong address, but the two are drawn to each other regardless of their awkward first meeting. When an earth-shattering surprise upends Jaxi’s whole world, she has to rely on the charming playboy to help her make sense of everything and navigate her new reality.
This may be the slowest burning Adriana Locke book to date, but I enjoyed watching the relationship grow between Jaxi and Boone. They were cautious not to jump anything too quickly with everything else going on in their lives but they both wanted more, which made it sort of both insta love (feelings wise) and slow burn (physically).
Jaxi has not had the greatest family or romantic life so far, so it was hard for her to accept Boone’s help and trust that his feelings were real. Boone had a nice journey of growing up a little and learning to accept responsibility. He proves to his family he’s ready to be an adult, and I loved how the Mason family all came together to support Boone.
Overall it was a sweet and sexy story and I plowed through the whole thing in one night!
“How did you get in here?”
That’s not what you want to hear when you’re staring into the sea-green eyes of the hottest man you’ve ever seen. Yet I suppose it’s a fair question, considering I’m an uninvited stranger standing in Boone Mason’s kitchen.
If you think that’s bad—just wait. It gets worse.
This charming and wealthy playboy, who can’t pay his bills on time or find his way to the grocery store (but we all have flaws, right?), is sweet. Confident. Playful. He’s almost perfect. And, to make matters worse …
He’s smitten with me.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re rolling your eyes. You’re assuming this is some opposites attract situation—or that maybe we can be friends who turn into something more.
How can this be a bad thing?
Well, it’s simple. I’m not the kind of girl you fall in love with. Just to be sure, the universe reminds me of that in an unforgettable, in-your-face kind of way.
I might have broken into Boone’s house, but I won’t let him break my heart. I won’t break his either. There’s too much on the line to be that reckless.
