‘He talks dirty to me, but I don’t know his name.
He wants to tie me up, but I don’t know his face.
He turns me on, but I couldn’t point him out in a crowd.’
Well, weren’t we excited to jump into this book after having our appetites whetted and our interest piqued in Something Wild. And yes….our pulses were still racing from the thought of more Sam. Something Reckless did not disappoint; the twists, passion, mystery and intense emotions, well it had a bit of everything and we really enjoyed it.
We completely took to Liz in the prequel and we fell in love with her spirit; her humour and her obvious romantic heart in Something Reckless. She knows what she wants and she’s determined to find it despite her heart belonging to Sam, as it has done since her teenage years. She tries to deny and ignore but really; she knows it.
“I have to protect my heart.”
Liz wants love; she needs to feel wanted and to create a home – a family of her own. And wow does she try, but scarily gets herself into a real pickle on her mission. Although she’s quite a strong woman, intelligent and level headed she does harbour some feelings of inadequacies; like she’s not good enough yet wanting and trying to create her own mark on the world.
That elusive connection is hard to find when the heart wants what it can’t have. Or can it? We followed her online dating escapades and whilst funny, hot and exciting the mystery of who you’re actually talking too mirrors life. You just never know!
‘I smile, and for a second, I’m just a girl looking at a boy she’s kind of always loved. For a second, it’s not complicated by secretly broken hearts and online affairs.’
Sam….Sam…..Sam….so good we’re kind of lost for words. This man is still quite messed up emotionally and comes across as desperate to find what he truly needs – what he knows is missing. Sam’s shagging himself through life but you just know he wants Liz. Even Sam knows he wants Liz, but there’s always something…She’s always that elusive need and want but ‘something’ always gets in the way be it mistakes, misunderstandings or outside influences.
“What do you say, Rowdy? You, me, some alone time?”
Sam has a filthy dirty mind and his presence is sexy, controlling and cocky. However, this poor guy doesn’t seem to have control over much at the moment so he definitely makes damn sure he’s still got it in the bedroom!
‘I don’t know how to tell her, how to explain that I don’t really like the man I’ve become but I’m not sure I can be anyone else.’
Their road’s not easy and we haven’t reached the end and with a surprising twisty turn we’re gagging to continue our journey! Bring it on!
