Narrator: Eva Kaminsky
Sebastian Montgomery rose from nothing to become one of the most powerful media moguls in the world. Yet beneath the seemingly perfect façade of his life, the past still haunts him. Because when he lost his parents in his teens, he also lost his faith in love. When he discovers Charlie Ballard and her incredible metal sculptures, he is awed, inspired—and he can’t help feeling things he swore never to let himself feel again. Soon, Sebastian wants not only Charlie’s art, he wants her as a woman, too. More than he’s ever wanted anything in his life. And what a Maverick wants, he always gets…
For Charlie, Sebastian offers the commission of a lifetime. Creating a magnificent sculpture for his new headquarters is a dream come true, but falling for the spellbinding billionaire isn’t part of the plan...until his luscious kisses entice her into total recklessness. He fascinates and captivates her, and as Charlie learns more about the dark depths of Sebastian’s past, all she wants is to heal him with her love. But can a man who has grown up thinking love is toxic ever believe that true love is real?
I really enjoyed getting to know the guys in The Maverick Group from the first book in this series, Breathless in Love, and I couldn’t wait to read more. Reckless in Love by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully is the second book in the Maverick Billionaire series and I liked it even more than the first.
Reckless in Love follows Sebastian Montgomery, who is a media mogul, and gives motivational talks and such. And he’s building a new headquarters for The Maverick Group. When he sees Charlie’s sculpture, he knows she’s just the person to build a sculpture for the new HQ.
Sebastian is a perfectionist. He’s a major perfectionist, particularly when it comes to himself. This was so easy for me to relate to, because I am that way too. I could understand how he feels, and relate to issues he has because of it. But Sebastian is also just the nicest guy, and I loved him wholeheartedly.
Charlie is one unique lady, but I loved her straight away. She’s really comfortable with who she is. She loves to wear comfortable clothes, and work on her art (which is making these sculptures out of found metal objects), and teach at the community college. Charlie is just so loveable. But she does have some worries, particularly making sure her mother (who is quite ill) is taken care of. I love how much Charlie loves her mother, and how close she is to her mom.
There is some serious chemistry between Charlie and Sebastian, and they both admit it right away. But Charlie is a little apprehensive since Sebastian has just hired her, and Sebastian doesn’t want to push Charlie at all. Seriously, I loved that about Sebastian. He totally respects Charlie, and waits until she is completely sure of his motives.
Sebastian’s need for perfection definitely causes issues in Charlie and Sebastian’s relationship, but not because he was expecting Charlie to be perfect, but because he was expecting himself to be perfect. Luckily they are able to work through it.
Reckless in Love left me wanting the next book in this series so much, and I absolutely HATE having to wait for it. Like seriously, why isn’t it out yet? Because I need it! Reckless in Love is perfect for contemporary romance fans.
