is an erotic romp in the Spanish countryside that will weave
a sensual veil over you from the get-go.
Saskia Walker is an undisputed master in erotic
romance and this book should please her fans.
However, I found that the main focus in the book was
Katrina’s sudden “sexual awakening” and her daring behavior
in pursuing pleasure.
From having masturbatory sex in her office with a
client while her ex-fiancé watches, to being a voyeur to a
gay sexual encounter between some secondary and minor
characters, Katrina’s character felt like a caricature of
the woman she says she wants to become.
Most of the plot revolves around Katrina’s sexual
encounters with the Teodoro brothers and how it affects her
judgment as a “modern” and “independent” woman.
The brothers’ macho, and sometimes caveman-like,
behavior is unexpectedly irritating, as I usually enjoy
Alpha male characters.
Also, I found the prose awkward at times, which
emphasized the shallowness of the plot and the characters’
behavior, making it hard to care about the outcome of the
intrigue surrounding the family and which brother becomes
Katrina’s partner in her HEA.
Reckless is a
lava hot read that you shouldn’t pass up when you are
looking for a light read, jam-packed with sensuality which
will leave you sweating and reaching for something to cool
off with or reaching for someone to keep the heat going!
