Ruined By The Reckless Viscount - Sophia James

Kidnapping and cross-dressing and secret artist and complicated lives, oh my. 

 

Plus bonus characters with illnesses who discover people who care for them.

Reckless Heart
Reckless Heart - Amanda Young 3.5 stars

Milo Santiago is eighteen year old trying to make enough money to go to college and build a life for himself after he is thrown out by his parents for being gay. He's staying with his brother, Dante (see book 1 in series). When a gorgeous guy (Campbell Brooks) walks into the restaurant he works in, Milo can't help but to approach the guy only to be quickly shot down. Campbell isn't really the emotional or committment type. The two eventually come to a understanding and start up a relationship that benefits them both. But when one of them comes to the realization they've fallen for the other things may not end well.

I enjoyed the story but I wished it was more fleshed out. The epilogue skipping seven years into the future left me wanting more. I was interested finding out what happened between those years. It's not exactly the only part I wanted to know more about but it was what it was. Milo and Cam seemed to evenly balance each other and I liked that they had to work to make their relationship work.

An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

Reckless - Julie Kenner

I got through part of it before realizing I'd read book one a few weeks ago. As I recall, it was *this* character that had me irritated in that book, so reading her story wasn't exactly something I gave much thought.

 

Once upon a time, there was a shy, impoverished nerd in a small Texas town. Three jocks were a bit mean to her for her senior prom...ok, one was. The other two just gave into peer pressure. She ran off, became a lawyer, and is the previous heroine's literary agent.

 

For reasons I do not know, possibly because I have yet to go to a class reunion and have no real reason to avoid it; just don't care, the heroine decides to trek back to bumblefart Texas, get the three jocks hot and bothered, and tell them they aren't worth her time. No; can't say that I do understand. Then again, I didn't go to my senior prom either. :shrug:

 

Of course, it comes a monsoon, she hits a dog, and gets picked up by what she thinks is one of the jerks, only it's his older half brother. So the rest of the book is her attempting to get revenge on three men, two of which have grown up, while getting assistance after a fashion from the H. Eventually she comes to her senses - about the time the one who hasn't grown up remembers her and decides to teach her a lesson about being a tease.

 

As an aside, the house/farm/ranch/whatever, Dalton or Duncan? And how is it still standing having been abandoned for 20 years? It's treated as if all it needs is a coat of paint. Right.

Reckless Passion
Reckless Passion - Amanda Young This was a steamy novel about Beau, gentlemen’s club owner, and his personal assistant, Adam. Beau isn’t described as the most likable of characters and comes off as a arrogant wealthy man who cares about staying fit and not tolerating an ounce of fat on his body. He decides to confront Adan about being sexually appealing, giving flirtatious glances, and makes his move on Adam. Adam caves and accepts Beau’s advances and good steamy times ensue.

After their steamy, mind-blowing encounter, Adam admits that Beau was his first. Beau feels the same but plays the scene off as a mistake so they go their own separate ways as if it never happened. At a dinner party at Beau’s mansion, Beau makes his moves on Adam again and Adam, being so in love with Beau, drops to his knees in lusty bliss. The scene is interrupted by an emergency phone call about Adam’s son Johnny.

The entry of Johnny gives this story personality and actually saves this novel. Prior to this, it was an overly cliché novel of a wealthy arrogant man taking advantage of a spineless young man who melts at his owner’s feet and a hot sex scene – respect not necessary. After getting Johnny back from the hospital, Beau offers for Adam to bring his son to work with him to avoid having to quit his job as Beau’s personal assistant. They make mutual confessions to each other and seem to actually start their real loving relationship. Beau’s arrogance and selfish needs cause a fight and they separate for the evening in a cloud of anger and regret.

Adam’s apartment building burns down and Adam goes to Beau as his first line of support. Beau is supporting, warmly takes them in and redeems himself as he sets their relationship back on track from their fight. Beau has now realized that he would do whatever needed to convince Adam they were meant to be together. Honest conversation results and steamy happy ending is established! The character development is evident from silence with unpalatable cliché characters to open characters with relatable feelings, open communication and a sense of mutual respect.
