This book wasn't terrible. I am not a huge fan of romance anymore but it was ok. I didn't realize it was part of a series though and only read this one and Wrecked so it was completely out of order.

Oh my goodness, why has this book been sitting on my kindle for so long?  I am seriously kicking myself right now, the book was so captivating and gripping that i could hardly put it down.

Jax is the front singer in a band called The Hitchcocks and we first see him mentioned as the band called The Cocks.  

Riley is an accountant that likes to live on the edge a little, especially as she was so hurt by a former boyfriend who almost destroyed her.  Seeing Jax has her so captivated by hum and the chemistry between them, but after leaving him with blue balls never expects to see him again.

When her firm sends her to work with a band for two weeks on the road and to make them cut costs, she does not realise the the HC stands for the Hitchcocks, until Jax carries her onboard the extravagant bus after an altercation outside.

Both characters tease each other and on up each other until there is nothing else for it but get even closer together.

The bandmates are mostly on the outskirts of the story, with Sky being the closest to Jax otherwise as a kind of sister like figure.

The book ends on a cliff hanger so i was glad that i could immediately get the second book to their story.

This book was too over the top for me and I didn't care for the characters that much, which made it hard to get into the story and finish this book.

I received a copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you Priscilla West for the opportunity to read your book. This was an enjoyable read. I am trying to cut down my NetGalley tbr list. I thought the story was well-written and cute. I liked both Jax and Riley. Jax is the rocker that has some secrets that he wants to hide, and Riley is the accountant that tries to resist her attraction to Jax, while trying to figure out if she is enough. I thought the romance was sweet, and I thought that their chemistry was great. It was a nice way to see how they fell in love. I want to read more books by Priscilla West. Overall, a great read.

I'm not quite sure how to review this one or bring added value to the already existing reviews... So I'll just say: it was okay. I was sooooo excited when I saw it was a rockstar romance, because it's a new found love of mine. But after reading the book, I feel this mild disappointment. Can't quite pinpoint it, except I expected more. Maybe part two will meet those expectations? But honestly, I'm not sure I'll even read part two. I just didn't feel a connection to the characters. Didn't like Jax, not when he was an asshole and not when he went out of his way to be nice to Riley. However, I did kind of like Riley. I loved her fierceness, even though she broke down after moment X (no spoilers, right?), she still stood up for herself during it. And afterwards with Jax too. So I respected and liked that about her. Anyway, to cut this short: I'm putting this one in either the 'not for me' or 'not the right moment' pile.

Bad boys covered in tattoos *insert drool here*

I have never read a rock romance before but there is a first for everything.

What incredible pacing with some incredible suprises along the way.

Riley is out with a friend listening to a band when she becomes infatuated with the main singer.
Their eyes lock and of course that sets the motion to all that follows.

An invite to backstage (a fantasy we all dream that would happen am I right?)
Except a cocky attitude is enough to put anyone off.

Fast forward to days later and she is the new accountant for said band and will go on tour with them.

On tour and being courted by a sexy tattooed rockstar that Riley constantly pushes away, phew I have never been more frustrated....until of course she gives up and falls...hard.

Oh my this rollercoaster has left me on an edge and I want more!!!!

This book took a bit to get into but once I got into it, it was fun. I enjoyed it but was left wanting more. The characters were super hot.

I did not finish this book. While I appreciate the offer to have the novel., I have stopped reading any romance novels that stray more into erotica.

I sent this review in error. I will be sure to read it next and send a proper review as soon as possible, Unfortunately, I mixed up my titles and meant to send a review for Wrecked.
I'm so sorry for the inconvenience.

I received this book for an honest review from Netgalley. 

This book has all the makings of every love story. Girl spots boy. Boy spots girl. Boy swoons girl with his singing skill. Girl losing her head over singing boy. Boy acts like a jerk and ruins the first meeting. Throw in the plot twist where boy and girl are thrown together for work, add in a mixture of drama due to both having trouble pasts. Add in a few supporting character roles and a lot more drama from an ex and BAM! There you have it insta love story right? Pretty much how this one goes. Only there are a ton of sweet, funny, serious, sad, and outright ridiculous moments as well. I enjoyed reading the book once I got past chapter 1. Because come on ladies, while we ALL love a sexy singer how many of us are actually going to pick a lock to get to him? How many of us are actually got to blank out time because he stopped in front of you and said “meet me back stage in 20 minutes.”

So yes I had a hard time wanting to continue reading once I started, but skip chapter 1 and the book is awesome. I enjoyed the light heartedness and all the characters. I loved the way Jax had his amazingly sweet moments.

He lifted my chin until our eyes were inches apart. “So I couldn’t – I couldn’t tell you before and still look in your eyes. But I had to make a choice. It was either my past or you. And I chose you”
I also like how Riley was full of spunk and never gave into his mess. Everything he dished, she was right there to dish back to him. It was defiently a great read. And I hate to say this is the first book of the authors that I have read! I will most defiantly grab up the rest of the series.

Reckless is book 6 in the Forever series. BUT it is the first book of Riley and Jax. Books 1-3 are Vincent and Kristen’s story and books 4-5 are Hunter and Lorrie’s. Fearless is book 2 to Jax and Riley’s story.

Make sure you grab these up! They are worth it!

Happy Reading!

Unputdownable... a very racy and fast-paced read. If you're into heady romances then this one is for you.

Absolutely loved this!  Who doesn’t love a rocker with a silky voice. Just the right amount of steamy

Received an ARC from Net Galley for an honest review.

Who doesn't love a rock star that can wet your panties by his voice? Jax, the leader of "The Hitchcocks", has looks, talent, and demons of his own. 

Riley Hewitt an accountant by day, reckless by night, one who is always looking for a bad boy finds one when she goes to a local bar with her friend Jen. She finds herself under a Jax spell. 

Hans-Peterson needed Riley to travel for an urgent last-minute assignment. Palmer, her manager, gives her the details regarding this assignment. She is going on the road as a tour accountant with the HC band. She knows the rules of the firm, no mixing business with pleasure. We all know that we want what we cannot have, that being said we have to wait until Reckless #2 comes out to find out what happens in the end. Excellent read.

As I continue to read Priscilla West’s books, I was surprised that Reckless somehow is connected to The Surrender Series. The protagonist of both series are friends and it’s interesting that the author was able to insert that in this newer set of stories. Though that is also a heed of warning that the plot will revolve around the characters’ issues.

At first, I thought I will not like it since I’m not really a fan of the guy’s persona—long hair, tattooes, rockstar, get the picture? The danger of a really bad boy is not my type especially if you’ve met Wrecked’s Hunter, they’re totally in a different spectrum. Coming from Wrecked with a slow-paced build up, Reckless is leaning towards “insta-love” and I guess, I just proved to myself that I like the courtship efforts more than just immediate chemistry. But somehow, Reckless was able to gain my interest when Jax and Riley were starting to warm-up. I also like the motorcycle gang touch which added more drama and danger to the couple. I know, it can be too good to be true—because in reality, they sure won’t be able to survive that—but sometimes a little damsel-in-distress situation can really be a gamechanger especially if it excites and raises the interest of the reader.

Overall, the first book is a good start and I’m looking forward to what’s going to happen in the second book.

I guess sometimes no matter what you do, or how much you try, it's just not working. That's how i felt about this book. I tried so hard to like the plot and the characters but i just couldn't connect with neither.

It's been awhile since I read this book but I loved it. The writing was easy to follow and the story had me hooked from the beginning.

This was a fun and wild ride!  I came into this book with absolutely no expectations and was pleasantly surprised!  The book centers on a rock band, and not only did I devour this book but also devoured the series.  I loved it so much that I purchased the remainder of the books on my own!
