From author M.E. Montgomery comes a single dad, small town romance novel set in her Sterling Mill Series.
Bristol Allen has always lived her life one way—full throttle. When two separate accidents end her career, she returns to her childhood home, Sterling Mill, TN to start over. Determined to forge a new life, she takes her skills from the racetrack and opens an auto garage—with a twist. The only thing to cause her to throw on the brakes in her life is the handsome deputy who seems to always catch her doing something he deems reckless. It turns out, the most reckless thing she could do is lose her heart to him and his adorable daughter.
Reid Braxton knows exactly what might happen if you don’t play it safe—you find yourself raising a little girl on your own. He doesn’t know much about how to bring up a daughter, but he’s determined to raise Lexi to be kind, sweet, and gentle—a lady like her mother. When Lexi comes home with a school assignment to interview the newest local business owner of Head to Tow Garage and Salon, Lexi’s immediately enamored with the beautiful, spirited, and stubborn woman he’s gone head to head with more than once.
Despite their differences, there’s no denying their chemistry. But will their attraction hold them together or are they headed for a collision?
Bristol Allen has returned to Sterling Mill after the tragic death of her grandparents and then her father. She never wanted to be back in this tiny town and the constant uninvited intrusion of one Deputy Reid Braxton does not make her think any different.
Reid Braxton lost his wife and has been raising his daughter on his own. He is trying to raise her to be a lady because that’s what her mom was but Reid doesn’t know the first thing about skirts and nail polish and tea parties.
Maybe things really do happen for a reason? Maybe Bristol was supposed to be back in Sterling Mill after all.
Call It Reckless is book 2 in the series, and I did not read book 1. I had no trouble following along, but I have to say that the story was a little slow to get going. There was a lot of fluff in the middle before anything really “happened”.
M.E. Montgomery can’t remember a time she hasn’t had at least one book on the go to read. After years of falling headfirst into the lives and loves of other author’s characters, M.E. decided to write her own. She enjoys creating the kind of realistic storybook friends you wish you could actually meet, and sometimes she finds herself wondering what those characters are up to once she’s delivered their happily ever after.
She’s married to her best friend and has four children and two Boxer dogs. They live wherever the Navy sends her husband, usually the East coast of the U.S., but also once in Japan.
Whenever she’s not writing or substitute teaching, she often ponders the riddle of how the kitchen sink appears to automatically refill with dirty dishes as soon as her back is turned. On the occasions it stays empty, you can find her with a glass of wine or Scotch outside at their fireplace or curled up inside with a book, binge watching TV, or chatting with readers.
