 Release Date: February 20, 2018




For the record, I’m
not going to hook up with my boss.

I’m a lot of
things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be
near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow,
which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.

I don’t want to be
tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or
the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won’t get the key to my
heart, no matter how much I want him.


Between us, she’s
the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce.

What sane man trying
to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles,
and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn’t notice.

My focus is on my
kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to
mine. It doesn’t matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my
life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can’t have and shouldn’t
want, no matter how much I crave her.

Reckless by Lex Martin–Review

75e61-reckless2bebook2bcoverFour words for you: One click this NOW!! Lex Martin is a new to me author, but I’m extremely happy that I found her. I was unaware of her previous book, Shameless, that was about Tori’s sister. Being that this book is in a series, my not reading the first one, didn’t matter as this could be read as a standalone.

Tori is a twenty-three year old UT college student. She is spunky, young, fun, lovable and considered the outcast/black sheep/loner of the family. She is not the picture-perfect student and more concerned with partying and having fun. She thought she had a wonderful boyfriend, Jamie. However, she has experienced an extremely horrible experience with love and Jamie not being who he says he is. This affected her life greatly with the biggest being that she is now a college dropout after failing her classes her senior year. She has decided to go on a ‘man free’ diet for a year and try to get her head on straight. Kat, Tori’s sister, is extremely pregnant and lives about 40 minutes outside of Austin. She tells Tori the news that she is considered a ‘high risk pregnancy’ and approaches her with a job as a live-in nanny to their neighbor.

Ethan is a phenomenally caring and loving man who truly does have the world on his shoulders (luckily, he’s got some great shoulders😉). He is going through an extremely god-awful divorce to a shrew of a woman. He is trying to co-parent with her, but she, unfortunately, doesn’t want anything to do with them and ignores them, unless it benefits her. So, Ethan, is busy raising his kids by being mom & dad, keeping the family farm afloat, take care of his mom and younger brother, Logan. He feels pulled extremely thin and when Logan approached him with Tori as a live-in nanny, he is reluctant, but slowly acknowledges he needs help. Let’s just say, these two created sparks and friction from their first meeting and not necessarily good ones. Luckily, the children love Tori and even Ethan notices that they need some normalcy in their life and if Tori can give it to them, he will take the sacrifice of not necessarily getting along.

Considering their backgrounds with love and the opposite sex, both are guarded and reluctant to expose themselves to the other not to mention even entertaining the idea of a relationship. There is also the little matter that technically Ethan is her boss and she doesn’t want to get involved in a boss-employee relationship. Despite all this, sparks are developed over time and they realize they are attracted to each other. Ethan and Tori have many obstacles they need to encounter before they can think about a HEA.


I flipping loved these two together. I loved Tori’s spunk and sassiness. I loved seeing her grow from beginning to end. She turned out to be an extremely strong character. Ethan, oh Ethan, who in their right mind would leave him. Hello, with his shaggy dirty blond hair, sun-kissed skin, muscles for miles, extreme love for each of his children and in my mind an extremely sexy southern drawl. Seriously, who would leave him? His children were FREAKING adorable. Yes, they are five and two, but they had some serious personality and character. Lex Martin wrote these two children perfectly (especially the daughter) in regard to how young children are affected and how observant they are during divorce. Beautiful and sad at the same time.

“Pretty sure the people next to us hear my ovaries explode and splat on the floor.”


I, wholeheartedly, approve of this book. I love every aspect of this book. Seriously, click don’t sample, this book.

Secretly, I am crossing my fingers and toes for a book about Logan and possibly Joey🤞!!! Here is a little taste of Logan’s humor and personality.

“‘You know, some girls don’t consider anal to be sex.’ This is why every father in a twenty-mile radius locks up his daughter when Logan Carter’s around.”

Thirty Day Boyfriend by Whitney G

Thirty day boyfriend by Whitney G is a cute, fun and a quick little read revolving around an office romance.

Nicholas A. Wolf is considered the literal Wolf of Wall Street. He is an infuriating workaholic who appears to be very cold and callous.

Emily is his lovable Executive Assistant who is celebrating her two-year anniversary at the opening of the book. She is also a workaholic, but can’t seem to stand working for Mr. Wolf anymore.

When she was hired she had a four-year employment contract, but doesn’t feel like she can handle staying one more day. Without giving away too much, she tries to find another job, but is unsuccessful due to our beloved Mr. Wolf. He comes across a situation revolving around one of his contracts and seeks the lovely Emily for help.

Emily and Nicholas were a riot together. I loved the sexual tension between them which ultimately led to loads of laughs! Whitney G has done it again with another great read!

Holy read, Batman! Nudes by Sarah Robinson

33858470Sarah Robinson is a masterful genius! Done, enough said. Just kidding, the book was flipping phenomenal! There is a strong under current that no matter what life throws at you, we as human beings should be building each other up NOT shaming them. Wonderfully written and don’t let the cover persuade you to not read this book. It’s part of the whole concept and ties in great!

Ms. Robinson wrote 2 characters that have so much depth that it’s hard not to get sucked into the book to find out the other layers. Aria is an upcoming actress with her first leading roll. She wants to be taken seriously in this business and won’t allow anything to happen to her and her success. She wants to earn it on her own and not look like she was given preferential treatment.

Ben is the new CEO of Shepherd Film Studios. He is trying to make a comeback after having a nasty and bitter divorce. One thing he told himself after the divorce was, ‘No more actresses’. However, this all changes when he meets Aria Rose. Their chemistry is off the charts and the insta-love that we experience was so well written and believable. (I’m not saying I don’t believe is insta-love, its hard to read sometimes if it’s not written well).

If I could I would give Ms. Robinson and Nudes a 5+, but alas I can’t. I can tell you though that this a book you don’t want to miss. It’s is amazing!!

5 stars
