Reckless Love is book two in the Hard to Love Series, however can be read as a standalone. If you want to get your first glimpse of Ian and Kenzie then pick up Hard to Love #1 but totally not needed. Cade and Alexa’s best friends sure do have a story to tell!
I seriously loved this book. Anything that has one sexy as sin MMA fighter is right down my Ally! Ian is our fighter in this book and is training for his upcoming big fight in Vegas. His chance to bust out into the circuit and his first real large crowd fight. He so very sweet and extremely caring, did I mention HOT?
MacKenzie, or Kenzie as we know her through most of the story worked as a nurse at a local hospital and was laid off. Ian was able to get her a job at the gym he trains at (however Kenzie doesn’t know that). She is beautiful, smart and sweet and very self-sufficient. Never grew up having a stable home or much of anything, or anyone to really love as a child in the foster system. The closest person she has ever had is her best friend Alexa.
Kenzie and Ian have met in the past. When Ian blew Kenzie’s advances off for training reasons, but she just assumes he blew her off to be an ass, things with them have been strained. They both want each other and don’t act upon it. She gives him the cold shoulder, he assumes she doesn’t want him, but boy how they are both oh so wrong.
I absolutely loved this story line. The sexual tension was so freakin hot. Plus the way everything transpired, Kenzie’s selfless acts to help others including Ian’s sister and even Ian himself unknowingly made me love her to pieces.
I loved both characters; nothing was over the top and a very believable story between two insanely sexy characters. There was love, hope, heartache, yearning and angst. The story has some twists and turns which makes it a great read. A very easy read! I can’t wait for the next book! 4.5 Stars!
The worst part about training mode was the no-pussy rule.
My intense training schedule, brutal workouts, and strict diet were nothing compared to the hell of not being able to satisfy my needy cock. I had a fight in less than a week, which meant I wasn’t going to see any action anytime soon, and the beautiful girl bouncing before me pushed every button I had. Pornographic thoughts ripped through my brain, making it difficult to concentrate on anything but the pulse throbbing in my erection.
A one-way mirror in the office faced the gym’s solitary treadmill. I’d come in to grab a drink from the mini fridge and was in the office when MacKenzie arrived, so when she jumped on the treadmill for her morning run, I figured I might as well sit for a minute and take in the view. But it was such a fucking cocktease, I wanted to punch someone.
Her body was a twelve out of ten. My dick was telling me to pull her hot ass off the treadmill, take her in the shower, spread her legs, and give her the best fuck she’d ever had.
MacKenzie was a treat for all the senses. From the breathy gasps of exertion pushing past her parted lips, to the rhythmic way her tits bounced, and the delectable feminine scent of deodorant and sweat I could smell whenever I was stupid enough to wander near her.
Though it wasn’t just about her fantastic tits and perfect ass. She had those in spades, but there was more to her. I could see it in her now. When most people went for a run, their faces relaxed and their eyes became unfocused as they zoned out. Their body might be running, but their mind was somewhere else as they bobbed along to their music.
When Kenzie ran, it wasn’t just her body in motion. Behind her gentle expression was a sense of determination. Initially I thought she was running away from something, but there was no fear in her eyes, only clarity of purpose. No, she wasn’t running from anything, she was running toward something.
Strength and determination in a woman were sexy as hell. I added those attributes to the list of things I liked about this girl, as if there weren’t enough already. I loved watching her push forward. Her confidence and her zing, combined with her…
Well, combined with her amazing tits. Perky and palm-sized, they were perfect. I couldn’t stop watching them bounce as she ran, the same way they would bounce if she rode me. Who invented one-way mirrors? I could fucking kiss them.
But I’d had my chance with her, and I screwed it up. Now she wouldn’t give me the time of day.
So this was all I could do—sit and watch from afar. Or nearby, now that she worked at the gym I trained in every single day. I should have switched gyms when she started working here, but all my fights were set up through the owner, Chris. Besides, Chris had worked hard to get me where I was today. Leaving him now that I was finally on the verge of breaking through would be a dick move.
So I was stuck. Who could dream up a more frustrating hell?
