BLURB: When his best friend, Lee, offered him his sub as part of a bet, Colton Prier never expected more than a clean condo from the boy. But Tate Nicholson is well-trained, eager , and he likes rope play as much as Colton enjoys tying him up. It should have ended after one night, but they begin meeting in secret, and Colton can’t stop thinking about Tate. It’s a betrayal of his friendship with Lee to fall in love with Tate, but Colton can’t help wanting the sub for himself.

He’s not alone in his feelings, either. Tate thought he was happy with Lee. Not completely fulfilled, but happy enough. But as he spends more time with Colton, he realizes Lee isn’t capable of giving him what he wants anyway. Lee demands his full submission, but Tate doesn’t want to be a lifestyle sub. Colton expects his obedience at times but gives him his freedom more often than not, which is more in line with what Tate wants.

When Tate really needs his Dom and Lee isn’t around to help him, he reaches the tipping point and needs to choose who he wants to give his submission to, and to accept the consequences of his choice when he does.

 

12833361_10205887579250242_1339245014_nReckless is a fun, entertaining story of two guys who find themselves in a situation neither of them expected. Falling for your best friend’s sub, and falling for your Dom’s best friend is not an everyday scenario in Tate and Colton’s life. However, fate has its unexpected ways of putting two people in each other’s way to change their lives for good. For those who dislike cheating, it’s not what’s happening here, so you guys are good to read on and enjoy a love story full of heart and some kinky hotness.

Tate and Colton have palpable chemistry and it’s clear from the beginning that these two are just meant to be together. Although they don’t expect emotions coming their way, their feelings just slowly sneak up on them and they find themselves confused and so much in love they don’t know how to go on. I enjoyed the plot, the unexpected feelings and some very well written emotional scenes.  Colton’s strong attraction was a little bit too quick for me and I would have liked to read some more build-up, but after the shower scene, I was totally convinced that his emotions are very real and raw.

The BDSM aspect of the story left me with mixed feelings. I enjoyed all the scenes and Colton is the kind of Dom I like in my stories. However, Lee was just someone I can’t really imagine in the lifestyle. It was a bit unrealistic for me not to communicate with your sub before signing a contract and being that much on different opinion and wavelength about the wants and needs that should be met in a contract like that. I can’t see how Tate had agreed to being Lee’s sub under those circumstances. The lack of communication is my biggest problem here, between Lee and Tate as Dom and sub, and also between Colton and Lee, being best friends. All this is nicely settled though and the reader is left with a content, warm and fuzzy feeling that everyone can find their right partner eventually.

This is a sweet and heartwarming love story with an extra layer of kink to spice it up. Enjoy!
