Title: Pretty Reckless
Author: Jane Anthony
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Addiction: the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.
Love: feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone)
Amazing how two words with vastly different definitions can have the same adverse effect on the spirit. I may be an addict, but I’m no longer foolhardy enough to be addicted to one man. No, this girl finds her comfort in thirst quenching liquid -- it dulls the pain caused by tainted love.
True love may exist, but not for me.
Reckless: without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action
The guy I used to be is a distant memory. I left him in the past, vowing never to be that man again. But never say never, right? This time, I became him out of need. Need for her. She only let me in assuming I enjoyed being on the outside, at arm’s length. But the more I fight the desire brewing in my veins, the harder she is to resist.
Wrong for each other, but carved from the same stone.
He is my rock.
She is my air.
But rocks shatter, and if you get high enough, air becomes unbreathable.
No matter how good it might seem, getting wrapped up in each other is pretty reckless...

So this brought mainly smiles to my face when reading the restraint that he has to not even touch her. And how easy it was for them to kinda keep things on the down low and just give snide bits of information to each other to get them to fall in love and not even realize it.
how they can lift and carry each other through all of that, and still not even realize how much they need each other. I love the saying that even when you are fu@k buddies, don't fall for each other. But when they do, how do you react? Do you jump with joy knowing they share the same feelings, or do you keep freezing than pushing them away so you don't have to deal with it. how much can one person take with a roller coaster of emotions that would drive me to a nice mimosa. umm. sounds good. gotta make one soon.
I love the chemistry between these two characters. Take the hard core party girl, you know the one who doesn't have a black book but a black binder, and mesh it with the bad guy turned good. both who need sometimes just a little relief and maybe a little stability won't hurt. they seem to mesh even with how different their lives turn out to be. sometimes you just can't pass that once and a life time love. well i guess you can. and i guess you will if you have to. i just don't see why you would.
Can your past demons pass you up and you learn to embrace the future? Or better yet,stay in the present and ignore it all to enjoy what you fell now. It us all a drug, just which one will win?
OK. Can I say that I want some of that Chase. Tattoos, piercings all over, and in places that if you haven't been with a guy that has had those piercings, well let me tell you, they are amazing. well the one guy i had experience with that did. yummy. here is a bad boy, that has already hit rock bottom and is trying and seems to be succeeding in turning his life around. and can I say, sexy bedroom content here. umm. so our girl, who is about to hit rock bottom, is helped by a stranger to learn about life again and she realizes what life can and will be about. I love how the family life is somewhat involved and can be very intense at a few times, wondering what remark what might be said, or action may happen. I love Grams BTW. OMG. this sweet lovely lady has taken my heart in this book. I know her role in the book, but damnit, reminds me of what my mom might be like when i get older. so sweet and innocent. she made Kat even see what she needed in life. sometimes, you have to step into the unknown realm to realize that the change is a good one, and everything will be alright in the end. well, most the time. So i give this book 4.7/5 only because I wanna know what all his tattoos look like. so go get the book, check it out. nice spicy read. hot at times. but good amount of drama to keep you going til the end.
