#ARC #Review: Reckless Romance by Maggie Riley

recklessromancecover-1 About Reckless Romance:

Josh Lawson--he's got the body of an athlete, muscles galore, and thick, tousled bed head hair. He's always Mr. Serious, but when he smiles it transforms his entire face. I'd quietly lose my cool if that smirk were ever directed at me.

But playboys like him don't go for theatre nerds like me. Especially when the playboy in question is a strong silent type who is my opposite in every way.

I definitely am NOT in love with my best friend's brother. So why do I find myself dreaming/lusting over his broad shoulders and incredible arms? And why did we practically hook up on the dance floor at his sister's wedding? I can't get him out of my mind.


Reagan Bennett is not my type. She's happy, artistic, and deserves the real deal. I'm moody and only good for a one night stand. But after our impromptu sleepover, I can't get her out of my head.

She's got legs for miles. She's creative in all the right ways: she knows all the best spots in New York City and she's passionate about everything she does. Plus, her chocolate chip pancakes are killer.

She's everything good. I'm not gonna be the one to bring her down.

But the more time we spend together, the harder it is to keep my hands off her. I want her. Hell, I need her. It might be reckless, but it also might be love.


After having read Roommate Romance, I could not wait to get my hands on Reckless Romance!! Reagan and Josh are everything that I love in a romance. I love that they appear to be completely opposing forces, but in reality, they are two individuals that mesh so well together. I love that they work to enjoy what the other one enjoys.

When Josh went prop shopping with Reagan and anytime he recited some Shakespeare...I was in full on *SWOON* mode. And when he brought Reagan to the baseball game, which is something he loves to do, I almost died over the perfection of it all. She was happy to be doing something he loved, and he was happy just making her happy. Where can I find my own Josh?!

And Reagan? She is so special! I know she's a fictional character, but her enthusiasm for life was contagious. I loved that she was endearingly awkward, and any girl who loves the theatre as much as Reagan does is a girl after my own heart. Seriously, I loved her.

The secondary characters are also great, and I'm happy to see Allie and Shane are doing so great! Next up...Joanna????? PLEASE. I need to know what happened between her and Lincoln, and I need to know like...yesterday. And I think Liz may be in the running for her own story as well...at least one can hope!

Reckless Romance by Maggie Riley is a charming read that will leave you with a mile-wide smile on your face and a desire to visit New York City ASAP. I very much enjoyed this contemporary romance!
