After Dark Review of Reckless by Skye Jordan

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Read for: Mount TBR & I needed a good steamy novel
Synopsis: "A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix’s image means everything. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker makes Lexi realize how much living she’s sacrificed for her success and one touch is all it takes to threaten her carefully choreographed life. When that touch fills far more than just Lexi’s physical needs, she finds herself torn between the career she needs and the bad-boy she craves.

Jax Chamberlin gave up the superficial life of acting for the thrill of running his own stunt company years ago. But a recent betrayal proves he’s still too close to the limelight to find a woman who doesn’t plan to use him as a stepping-stone to success. When the charming and mysterious Lexi offers him a totally anonymous hook-up during an out of town trip, Jax accepts. Only Lexi is more sextacular than charming, and Jax wants more.

But Lexi’s got a major hang-up over his renegade lifestyle, and Jax isn’t willing to change his ways. Especially not when he discovers who she really is. Because if she finds out his connections could catapult her to the top of her career, he’s afraid the fantasy woman he’s falling for might just end up like all the other gold-diggers. And this time, it’s not just his bad-boy reputation at risk, but his heart, too."

My Review: This book has been sitting on my nook TBR shelf for quite a while now, it was a free or really inexpensive book so it got pushed off. I wasn't expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised. It took me a while to wrap my head around the setting (mainly the details of the character's professions). After a couple of chapters though the story took a fun twist. I loved the idea of anonymous chatting and the steam ramped up quickly (I also figured out very quickly that this was definitely a book that was nsfw). I enjoyed the back and forth banter and the way the characters developed, especially Lexi, who the story definitely revolved around. The ending was fantastic and I am honestly a little curious what her decision was since it was left so open at the end.
My Rating: There was definitely plenty of steam factor in this book and it had some wonderful characters and storyline to go along with it. I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag!
