Book Review -- Reckless by Priscilla West

Reckless (Forever, #1)Reckless by Priscilla West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A digital copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

Riley is a young and ambitious accountant in fashionable New York. One night when out with her friend and colleague Jen, she stumbles upon rockstar Jax. Jax is the heartthrob of many and after an encounter that leaves them both rattled, Riley and Jax go their ways - only to be brought together again. Riley joins Jax's rock band as their accountant. While striving to do an impressive job that would entitle her for a 20% performance bonus, she also finds herself falling for Jax's overtures. She is unsure what to make of Jax's chivalry and friendly compassion. Jax on the other hand, although charmed by Riley, is struggling with his own demons from his past. Do Jax and Riley see common ground and acknowledge their feelings for each other, is what the book takes us through.

This is a breezy and enjoyable romance read. The pace never slackens and there are some surprisingly thought-trains captured that makes one ponder - such as Jax's definition for nightmares for instance. Despite the gore in the climax, the author uses the scenes well to show the depth of character in the two protagonists. Riley is a quirky and witty girl and steals the scenes many a time. Jax's character is well-etched, with various glimpses into the fact that he isn't as shallow as he is purpoted to be.

Overall, this is a good one and I would certainly recommend this book to lovers of romance and drama.

My rating for this book: 4 stars
