Reckless Abandon by Jeannine Colette
Genres: Contemporary Romance
A heart-wrenching breakup, an accident… a loss.
Stretching out my right hand, I am reminded of the worst year of my life and all the dreams that faded in one awful weekend.
For six months I was numb.
And then I met a man.
An intense, complex, emotion extracting, sinful man.
If there's one thing I notice it’s the piercing gaze he is giving me.
So piercing because of Golden Eyes.
But what my heart doesn’t know…is he here to save me or is he the one who needs saving?
Reckless Abandon is a stand-alone novel.
Although you can read Reckless Abandon alone if you have read Pure Abandon you will meet Asher and learn everything he went through that led to him having has trouble trusting people and letting them close. It is not necessary though!, but is not at all necessary. This was an emotional read for me! I loved every second of it!! Emma is the best character but I wasn’t sure if she was going to be able to come back after reading the prologue. She is strong and not afraid to tell Asher what she thinks.
Of course there is plenty of twists and turns! Misunderstandings, lack of trust and misdirected blame pushed them apart. Emma tries to keep her distance because she is heartbroken and then is the sweet things that happen. I am telling you now you will cry, scream at both Emma and Asher yet in the end you will come full circle emotionally.
KATHRYN GRAYSON has it all—a beautiful husband, new baby, and a life most women would dream of. But after putting her career on hold for her family, Kathryn sets out to reclaim the woman she once was.
When Kathryn meets her new boss, ALEXANDER ASHER, Manhattan playboy and heir to his family’s fortune, their relationship is heated… and not in a good way. The two are at odds, playing a cat-and-mouse game that has Kathryn pouncing.
Kathryn seeks the comfort of her husband, GABRIEL MONROE, an up-and-coming attorney who seems to have less and less time for his wife as his career takes flight, leaving her dreaming about the days when their love story was a fairy tale.
After a heated argument, a box of Twinkies and a very elaborate display of white roses, Kathryn and Asher call a truce. She unravels a deeper side of him, and they develop a fierce connection that leaves Kathryn wondering what is appropriate… and what is not.
When Kathryn becomes suspicious of Gabriel’s activities, she finds herself alone and far away from home with the charismatic Asher. After a night of drama, honesty, and pure eroticism, Kathryn’s will to stay away from Asher is tempted like never before.
In a battle of self-discovery, Kathryn must choose between them. Both men are devastatingly broken by her actions—and she can only fix one of them. But when she makes her choice, will he even want her after all that’s happened?
