Reckless & Real, Book 0.5
Synopsis: “You need a good guy. A long-term guy. One who does dates and romance and emotional strings…I’m just an asshole who wants to tie you up, make you come, and walk away.”
Samuel Bradshaw is a man with a reputation—the kind of reputation that should have me running the other way. Instead, it has me searching for the shortest distance to his bed. I won’t be the starry-eyed girl who thinks she can change a man like Sam, and despite what he thinks, forever is not what I need. I need the things he makes me feel, the way he turns me on, and the promise of pleasure in his eyes. I need SOMETHING WILD.
Review: There are different kinds of prequels but here we find something that defines this word well. I haven’t read a lot written in this way, presenting an introduction to the characters, part of their past which will lead to the first volume that eventually will continue what we discovered about them. I think it’s really what I call a prequel and it is nice to be able to discover this short story. I warn you right away by cons, if you do not have the first volume handy you are going to be very sad!
So we discover Sam and Liz, their feelings and missed stories although we understand that they really have something together. I do not really want to say more about it as it’s quite fast to read the novel but it was nice to learn to discover the characters and it is true that I was very glad to be able to immerse myself in Something Dangerous to discover what happens to them thereafter. We are taken in their games even if we suspect that nothing will be very simple.
A good start!
