Review: Reckless Secrets by Gina Robinson

Check out my review of Reckless Secrets (Reckless #1) Reckless Secrets has even more secrets (Hence, the title!) Reckless Secrets was a lot more predictable than Reckless Longing, which made it less interesting and engaging for me. I wasn’t actively engaged in this one because I knew what would happen. It was really easy to see trends in this novel. In addition to that, it was a lot more repetitive. It even had a ton of phrases that were word for word. The plot was still enjoyable but the writing wasn’t as effective as it was in the previous novel, nor was the plot sequencing. Ellie was much the same in this installment. She is feeling guilt in this novel over keeping a secret from Logan but is too scared that that secret will ruin what they have. I didn’t agree with her on that front and found myself thinking badly of her because of it. You would have thought that she would have learned a lesson about keeping secrets from the events in the first novel but she hadn’t. I’m still waiting on that particular area of character growth from her. Logan was suffering in this novel with his secret being out. He was pretty hot and cold in this novel to me as he dealt with the things he had to deal with. Add in the fact that […]

Review: Reckless Longing by Gina Robinson

“What had just happened out there? For the first time in nearly three months I felt something besides anger and hurt.I felt something almost magical and romantic for a guy with a black eye, and I was scared.” I’ve been on a contemporary New Adult kick lately and this one fit the bill! Reckless Longing is a book full of secrets. Ellie’s mother had been keeping the secret of her father’s identity for years and Ellie has just now figured it out. So she enrolls at the college that he works at and applies for a student job working under him before she decides whether to tell him or not. But she never expected to meet Logan Walker, who is hiding secrets of his own. Between the two of them the secrets are enough to destroy everything they were both working towards. I liked the fact that this novel was based on so many secrets. It made figuring them out interesting because it kept you looking for clues. It also gave the novel that sense of urgency when a secret was almost revealed. And of course, it gave the novel drama when the secrets started getting out into the world. It was a pretty realistic plot–there wasn’t anything too out there but it was interesting enough to keep me reading. Ellie was trying to find a place where she belonged […]

Review: Reckless by Priscilla West

Rock-star romance…I couldn’t resist! Reckless tells the story of Riley and Jax as they start on the Hitchcock’s band tour. Riley is the tour’s finance manager and Jax is the lead singer. The problem is, this isn’t the first time that they have met. They met at a bar concert and almost had sex. So things are definitely a bit awkward on the tour bus with Jax trying to get with Riley and her trying to keep things professional. The attraction is almost irresistible, but Jax has dark secrets that could rip them apart for good. I enjoyed Reckless, most definitely. It was one of the better rock-star romances that I’ve read. It was mostly centered around Jax trying to get with Riley and Riley trying to refuse. But there were also some deep, dark secrets of Jax’s that spiced up the plot line. It had good pacing until the end. Then things just got crazy. Things moved a bit fast and the ending was a bit abrupt so it definitely kept me wondering how book two will go. Riley was the complete opposite of what you’d think an accountant would be like and I loved that about her. She was fun and not afraid to party. yet she took her job and task very seriously. She displayed a variety of emotions over the course of the novel and it […]
