One band, five musicians, and enough seduction to fill a stadium. Blind Attraction
Reckless Beat #1
He can seduce with a single glance. She’s been sheltered from the world. Attraction will bring them crashing together, but their vastly different lifestyles will try to tear them apart. In a glamorous world of rock-and-roll, only time will tell if they’re up for the challenge.
This is the story of a very sheltered woman, Alana, who grew up believing all men are bad, something her mother instilled in her. So when she attends a rock concert with her best friend Kate and Mitch, the lead guitarist wants to meet her after the show, she's quite hesitant. Mitch sees her in the front row during the concert and finds her extremely attractive. He is confused about why he feels so strongly about her. After all, he is a rock star who can have any woman he wants whenever he wants them. Alana decides to take him up on his offer to meet for a drink afterwards, something happens with a disgruntled security guard, leaving her physically injured and vulnerable. Mitch's need to take care of her is overwhelming and they spend the next several days together.
I really liked Alana and I liked the fact that she didn't hide who she was and why she was that way from Mitch. I loved Mitch too, but when he justified his actions half way through the book, I wanted to strangle him.
And I LOVED Blake. He was funny and sweet and caring.
"Don't let him go Alana." He implored her. "He wants you just as much as you want him. Don't let the hurdles surrounding his career stand in your way."
Will the world wide upcoming tour jeopardize the feelings and blossoming relationship between Mitch and Allie? I love that this series continues with what I assume are more in-depth stories of the other characters and can't wait to jump into the next book.
Passionate Addiction Reckless Beat #2
He’s been her ultimate untouchable desire. She’s his savior and he’s never laid eyes on her. An internet friendship turns into an unstoppable physical chemistry. But little white lies can create black holes in any relationship. Will an Aussie with a heart of gold forgive her bad-boy boyfriend or will deceit end this passionate addiction?
Loved this book!! I came away from book one having fallen in love with Blake even though he wasn't the main character in that book. I thought he was kind, compassionate and caring beneath his bad boy persona. This book delves further into his story.
He and Gabi are great friends and have been for 4 years, ever since they met online in a chat room, yet they have never met in person. They've only talked via Skype and phone calls. Blake travels half way around the world to meet up with her for her birthday. She obviously know who he is, yet he's never even see a photo of her. When Gabi sees him at the bar, she's in shock!
Her body went into meltdown, overwhelmed and unsure whether to heat up in arousal or panic under his scrutiny. Bloody hell. Nobody should be that sinful. A rich, talented, bad boy all rolled up into a package of I-don't-give-a-shit, I-know-how-good-I-look.
Blake and Gabi fall into an easy relationship, even though he is hesitant at first because he doesn't want to lose her friendship. I thought these two were great for each other! They both seemed to have past issues, Blake more so, but I think they both helped each other move forward from the demons of their past.
It's only when Blake's past resurfaces, and he means well by wanting to handle the issue without Gabi, this causes a ton of trouble between them. And I truly felt sorry for him.
You saved my soul. Gave me new meaning. Fought against my demons, while I lay sleeping. "Those are Reckless lyrics." He shook his head. "Those are your lyrics. The song is about you."
I enjoyed this book even more than the first book. We get to know the entire band even better and you can see how involved they are in each others' lives.
I can't wait to move on to Reckless Weekend!
Reckless Weekend Reckless Beat #2.5
What do you get when you mix a rock band as hot as Reckless Beat, women strong enough to capture several of the bad boys’ hearts, and a bet that sparks a competitive streak? Boundaries will be pushed, alcohol will be abused, and loads of sarcasm will be shared. The past is trying to catch up with the present, and the pressure may be too hard to handle. One reckless weekend will test each member of the band and the women who’ve claimed their love.
OMG, this book was great! This book was pitched to me as a stand-alone, but I read and reviewed books one and two in this great series and I highly recommend you do that. You will get to know the characters much better and that will make this book all that much more enjoyable!
The Reckless Beat gang heads to Vegas for a crazy weekend before Mitch and Alana's wedding. In an attempt to get Alana to have a good time, a competition is created. The women give the men a list of things they must do before 10:00 pm and the men give the women a list. I admit I was laughing out loud at these characters! The men were especially funny. They consider each other family, however, they are often antagonizing each other to the point of a fist fight.
"Shit!" Mason broke the silence. "It's five to ten." Without warning, the Reckless Beat front man threw his jacket to the ground and began working the buttons of his shirt. "What the hell are you doing?" Sean asked. "Someone has to do the fucking nude run. We have less than 5 minutes."
While there was a lot of fun and games, there was also some serious heartbreak.
I love all of these characters and can't wait to see how Mason, Sean, Ryan and Leah's stories play out. I'm looking forward Undesired Lust next!
Undesired Lust Reckless Beat #3
They used to be the perfect team…until their sex tape went viral. Now, bitterness has destroyed him, driving away his muse while financial ruin is breathing down her neck, threatening to destroy her dream career. There's only one option left to save them both, but it would mean a collaboration with the one person they love to hate… Or do they merely hate to love?
The books in this series just keep getting better and better! I loved this story too! This is the story of Mason and Sidney. We met Sidney briefly in one of the earlier books and we see that she and Mason can't be civil to one another. This book delves into the background of what happened.
Mason and Sidney along with Sean share a steamy night following a Grammy win. And let me tell you, how cow, I thought I would spontaneously combust reading that scene!
"Who knew it took two bottles of champagne, a tequila sunrise, and a shot of Baileys for your inhibitions to vanish?"
A scandalous video ends up in the wrong hands. As Mason seems to profit from it, Sid loses everything. Anger, despair, pain and humiliation rack her life. And while his band mates are like his family, everyone makes an assumption about Mason which sends him into isolation.
When their paths cross again, Sid's resentment and anger is something that still shocks Mason. Will they be able to get past that and be able to work together again? And it's apparent their feelings for each other are still very strong.
"Because I knew this truly magnificent person, who had talent, and heart, and yeah, maybe a little too much arrogance, but he was a great guy. I looked up to him. I would've given my soul to create more music with him. He made me feel better about my insecurities, and working with him was the highlight of my career. He gave me freedom. he gave me passion. And most of all, that man made me believe in myself."
Then suddenly, someone starts to threaten them. Can they deal with all of the emotions from the past and can Mason protect Sidney from whoever is threatening them? I got to a point in the last 25% of this book and couldn't put it down!
And I loved Sean and just wanted to hug him!!
This series has been great from book 1! Here is the reading order: (you won't be disappointed)!
