I don't normally read romance novels, or any of its subgenres, but for some reason, I couldn't resist reading Skye Jordan's Reckless. I downloaded it for free on iBooks, it was one of the top books. It is free with Kindle and Kobo too. I enjoyed the novel so much, I'm considering paying for the second and third books in the series. Reckless is a hot and sexy piece of fiction. I've dipped into this genre before and been disappointed. Previously, I have found that the writer has focused all their attention on the sexy parts of the novels, to the detriment of the story. I enjoyed the story of Reckless. A poor girl works hard and achieves success. A rich boy leaves the family business to find happiness and make it on his own. I liked Lexi's work ethic, her focus on her goals. She just needed to loosen up. I liked Jax's independence. He just needed to stop dating superficial girls. I found myself rooting for them as a couple. I liked their best friends, Rubi and Wes. It seems like they'll be the stars of Rebel, Jordan's second Renegades book. I might just get it when I need a quick read.
I would have liked a bit better ending though. It was just done. Suddenly. One of those times where there were other "sneak peaks" at the end of the book, so I thought there was more story. It keeps happening to me. I should have known better and checked. Even without that unfortunate surprise, I still would have liked something more at the end. An epilogue? Riding off into the sunset? I hope that even though Rubi and Wes are going to be the focus of Rebel we get to know what happens to Lexi and Jax. - I just noticed that the girls names are four letters and the boys are three; is that a thing? Am I going to start reading more novels in this genre because of Reckless? Probably not, but I might read the ones written by Skye Jordan.
