Release Blitz with Giveaway and Christie's review: Reckless Hearts by Melody Grace

Title: Reckless Hearts
Series: Oak Harbor #2
Author: Melody Grace
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2016


“When you’re ready for a real man to show you what it feels like, you just let me know.”

It should be the offer of a lifetime: sexy craftsman Will Montgomery wants to rock my world, and boy, does he know what to do with his hands – and that filthy, delicious mouth of his…

Only problem is, I don’t believe in relationships. And Will has ‘boyfriend material’ written all over his chiseled, hunky abs. He was supposed to be an impulse fling, but now he’s shown up in Oak Harbor, NC, to put down roots, and he’s determined to make me com…mit.

I’ve been hurt before. Love always ends in tears and tequila, but Will seems different. He’s charming and funny, and did I mention that miraculous mouth of his? Despite all my better judgment, I’m falling. Hard. But can something this good turn out to be true? Or will old scars keep us from building a future together? For the first time ever, maybe I want to be proven wrong...

A sexy, heart-felt stand-alone with a guaranteed happy ending from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!

Title: Reckless Hearts
Series: Oak Harbor #2
Author: Melody Grace
Release date: June 27, 2016
Cliffhanger: No
Rating: 4 stars

After reading and enjoying Heartbreaker, I knew I had to continue the series with the new full length novel set in Oak Harbor. This book is about Eva's best friend Delilah from the realty company where she worked. The heroine took me some time to warm up to. She's a woman who holds her father's betrayal against her trust close to her heart. After many years, she is permanently changed when his lies and dishonesty cut her so deeply. If the man who raised her and was supposed to cherish her and take care of her couldn't be trusted to keep her heart safe, how was she ever going to put her faith in any other man? So she made herself the good-time girl. The one who you can call for some no strings attached fun. But try to get close to her emotionally and she's running scared.

The one thing I've learned about guys is the good times never last. Commitment, relationships-they all fall apart in the end, ruined by cheating or lies, or just the ordinary grind of everyday existence. I've seen it happen too often to keep believing in that happily-ever-after.

I'm not saying that her actions were unrealistic or that they weren't plausible for her life experiences. They were. I just had a hard time connecting to her personality and her unwillingness to see past her prejudices about men. He was just the most delectable, patient, and sexy man and she was fortunate to have him in her life. From their first meeting he was respectful and appreciative of her and her needs. I was #TeamWill from the start.

Will had moved to town looking for a major life change. He was at a crossroads in his life and he met Delilah at the junction. He was unhappy with his job, and his lack of passion for his success on Wall Street finally took its toll after a bitter breakup. After one chance meeting and an impulsive kiss in the rain, she hadn't seen the last of him. She just didn't know it yet.

Their brief meeting spurred him to take action and shed the life that was weighing him down. He was determined to break through her tough outer shell and make her see that taking a chance on him would have rewards that were worth the risk.

Call it chemistry, call it fate, I don't need to know the name. It's the one damn thing I've been sure of after a world of confusion and doubt. I need more.

Will pursued her with a gentle, single-minded determination. He valued her as well as her goals in life, and that broke through to her like nothing else could. He treated her like she was the most important thing in the world to him, like she mattered. And she could no longer deny how much she wanted him to be different. To have someone to comfort her, someone she could depend on when she's lived her life expecting to be disappointed. If anyone could make her let go and lay her heart on the line, he could.

There was an intensity to his stare that makes something twist, an ache deep in my chest. Nobody's ever looked at me like this. Nobody's ever made me lose control, taken over my body with such command-and tenderness too.

One thing I have to applaud this author for is that she knows how to write some damn fine passionate scenes. She never disappoints in creating some incredible sexual heat and chemistry and these two were no exception. Will may have been a sweet hero, but when it came down to it, he could keep anyone's temperature rising with his confidence and wicked words.

This book was pretty drama free which I liked. It was a straightforward and realistic look at a woman who had to learn how to forgive in order to heal and let love into her life. This was a solid four star read for me and I will happily be continuing the series. I'm really interested to see who Eva's sister Lottie ends up with.
