Recklessly by A.J. Sand with 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.

My Review: 

I enjoyed this book. Not a rip roaring read, but it was entertainment enough. It was a typical jock falls in love with “stalker” female and they have a fling. However, there was more to the story than that and that is what kept me interested in the book.

The story about Wes’ family added enough variety to not get bored with just a romance story. I felt sorry for Wes’ mom, but admired Wes for his willingness to try. Wes has a twin, Abel, who didn’t seem to get as involved with his parents as much. I also enjoyed the younger cousin hooking up with Wes and thought that also brought some freshness to the story.

I also liked how Wes so badly wanted to play naked Scrabble and have it not lead to other things. Made me kind of chuckle. I also liked Lana and think Wes fell in love with from day one. Their relationship grows throughout the story, which I really enjoyed as well. I just think the character of Wes is one good guy. A little rowdy and likes his freedom, but definitely has a good heart.

This romance is steamy hot and there is profanity throughout for those who do not like those things in a book. Overall, it was a good romance and good story.

If you’re looking for a young love romance book, with steamy scenes and okay with profanity, then this book is for you.
