Recklessly by A J Sand--a Rabt VBTour--review/giveaway


Mature New Adult - Contemporary Romance
Date Published: 8/28/2013

Surfing and sex. This is Wes Elliott's life. And it's just the way he likes it.   `After seeing his parents stay in a loveless marriage his entire life, and burying away a heartbreak from his past, he knows where romance is best left: crappy chick movies. He'd rather lust and eventually leave, and that's exactly what the plan was when he met Lana Langston.
Except…turns out she’s only in it for the thrills, too. She's always only in it for the thrills: life in the literal fast lane on her motorcycle, and the hot nights in forbidden places without the awkward talks in the mornings after. She's Wes Elliott in way tighter jeans. 
So, this should be perfect, right? 
But the more time Wes spends with her, the more he wants the nights to turn into mornings. 
And maybe even longer. Suddenly, it isn't so perfect for him anymore.And the things he thought were buried are digging themselves up.   
Now Wes is in a lot of trouble. 
He’s falling in love with the one girl who might be a bigger risk than even a guy who gets barreled by the most dangerous waves in the world is willing to take on.
Can Wes and Lana figure out a way to make it work? Or is he headed for something far more reckless?
Due to the sexual content, language and violence, this work is not recommended for readers under 18.

From My Perspective: 

 First of all, let me emphatically state, this is definitely a book geared toward a mature audience.   There is a lot of sexually explicit content and a lot of language.

The storyline was interesting.   Young man is famous in his surfing career.   He is a womanizer, with his own moral code.   He makes sure all his women know that this is recreational sex when they involve themselves with him,    So, he meets our free spirit girl, the female version of himself.   They have a grand time coming together for sexual gratification.....until, someone or both of them start to fall in love and wants to take their relationship to the next level.    But that is a scary thing...a much too scary thing!

It was definitely a Hot romantic read and very emotional with a lot of wavering back and forth between the characters.   Wes and Lana were wildly passionate in their mutual attraction, but it seemed like there was a major lack of trust and therefore, a huge communications breakdown.  I ached for the characters to get their acts together and it took a great long while for them to do just that.

I found the ending a bit out of character for both Wes and Lana, and at the same time, exactly what you wanted for an ending.

Due to the fact, I am not a big fan of sexually explicit stories I am rating this read a 3.5 winks.
