Title: Reckless
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: February 20, 2018


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.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

Tori has been in a downward spiral ever since she discovered the truth about her last relationship. She needs to reset her life and becoming a nanny for Ethan’s kids is the way to go. Or at least that’s what Tori’s sister thinks. (Side note: Yay for all the Kat and Brady time we get in this book!) Unfortunately Ethan makes a terrible first impression and he’s positive that Tori doesn’t even want the job. But it doesn’t take long for her to fall for his adorable children, who she had previously met, and she takes the job. 

I actually loved how terribly their first meeting went. I have a soft spot for people who immediately have to apologize after meeting someone because they were idiots, and that is exactly what Ethan was. They manage to clear the air so Tori starts her new job on a good note. It doesn't take long for the two of them to realize they have feelings for each other, but thanks to Tori's past, she is hesitant to start anything with Ethan. She will only be there for a short amount of time and knows that getting involved with him is a bad idea. He is in a middle of a divorce with an awful woman and a relationship is the last thing she needs right now, but of course they can't help themselves. 

Ethan and Tori's relationship progressed pretty quickly, but the two of them together just felt right. Ethan understood Tori on a level she never experienced before. He made her feel special and she knew that he was as genuine as they come. And he often found himself in awe of her. She took care of his kids, cooked, cleaned and still found time to spend time with her sister and her family. 

I loved this book so much! I love the single Dad trope (I’m pretty sure that was what made me pick up Lex’s first book Shameless!), but then throw in the fact that the Dad is a handsome, rugged farmer and HELLO HEART EYES EMOJI! Seriously y’all. Heart eye emojis for DAYS. Ethan turned out to be the sweetest guy and the fact that he was an amazing father made him even hotter. There is plenty of drama throughout the book that will keep you interested and if you're like me, you won't want to put the book down. I laughed. I got angry. I even got a little teary a few times. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. 

Now I just need Lex to write Logan's story. Logan is Ethan's brother and he has a best friend that he's in love with. He just doesn't realize it yet!  ;-)
