He talks dirty to me, but I don’t know his name.
He wants to tie me up, but I don’t know his face.
He turns me on, but I couldn’t point him out in a crowd.
I’ve fallen for an anonymous stranger, and now the anonymity ends. I want more than typed secrets and texted promises. I want something reckless. Heat. Passion. The thrill of being entirely possessed.
Because I suspect this anonymous stranger isn’t a stranger at all.
Lizzy Thompson met Riverrat69 online through Something Real, a service promising to deliver meaningful relationships by forbidding its users to share names or photos until they’ve reached a certain benchmark. She was looking for love. He was researching an investment. They hit it off. Talked and flirted, hid behind screen names and cartoon avatars.
Now they’re breaking the rules and meeting in person. But Liz is prepared. She’s picked up hints and followed clues. She’s ninety-percent convinced she’s discovered the identity of her dirty-talking online friend.
She wonders if her ex-lover Sam Bradshaw knows her identity too.
When she rolls the dice on one reckless night, her chance at something real could crumble.
When I found out Lexi Ryan was writing a series on Liz and Sam I was soooooooooooo excited. Sam comes off like that HOTTIE playboy and Liz just seems like loads of fun. So why not!! Those two seemed to have lots of pent-up sexual tension in Lexi Ryan’s last series, soI was curious to see how it all plays out.
Now we have their story…and what a story it is!! We actually start off with Something Wild, which is the prequel to Something Reckless. BEST 9 chapters I’ve ever read!! Sam and Lizzy’s history is CRAY CRAY!! They are too hot for words. I couldn’t believe my eye balls as I was reading. Sam was on fire hot, and Liz is equally sexy as hell. They have RIDIC sexual chemistry.
It other words…..Sam bangs the snot out of Liz. HOLLA!!! And just when I thought this was gonna be one hell of a prequel….its ends….and BOOM!! Lexi Ryan throws you a curve ball…Okay okay Lexi, I can handle curve balls….Let’s dig into Something Reckless. I GOT THIS!!!
As you may have read in the synopsis, Liz joins a dating site and starts up an online relationship with this Riverrat69. If I was to ever start a sexy sexting online relationship with a man, it would be Riverrat69. HOLY TEXT messages batman! I can see why Liz is hot for him, and he’s a local. And she thinks its her Sam. The very Sam who banged the snot out of her a while back.
They are now estranged, but I won’t say why…But things are different between them. And they now find themselves in the same circle spending time together.
Sam and Liz are one big batch of mixed signals and misunderstandings. They want sex with no strings, then they don’t. They are both CRAZY in lust and love for eachother…but they don’t communicate.
“What game are we playing here, Rowdy?” he murmurs against my ear. “Is this the one where we pretend we don’t want each other and sleep alone…”
His fingers skim down my shoulder and my eyes float closed.
“Or is it the one where I make you come so hard you scream my name and tomorrow you act like you want nothing to do with me?”
“Are those my choices?”
You see my point. Two stubborn asses, two HOT stubborn asses.
There wasn’t one time while I read this book that I was bored, or skimmed or anything. This story kept me wanting to know things…lots of things, details…Lexi Ryan really blew me away with this one. The push and pull between Sam and Liz was just cray cray!! You know they love each other, there are just so many things that keep them a part. This dual POV totally works and I really enjoyed Sam’s POV. It’s not just the beautiful things he says to Liz, or the way in which he pines for her affections and kisses. It’s the way he talks dirty to her….Just like Riverrat69…..
“Don’t move,” he whispers. “Let me fuck you like this. I want to watch myself slide into you. I want to squeeze that ass as you let me take you.”
Ladies, not gonna lie. I was seriously turned on reading these exchanges between Sam and Liz. But aside from the HOTNESS, this book is ALL story. When you get to that WFT moment, your jaw drops!!
I almost couldn’t come up with a normal sentence for this review. All that came to mind was, “OMG!! OMG!! Or WTF WTF!!”
Lexi Ryan leaves you speechless. Something Reckless is smoking hot, twisted, and kept me on the edge of my seat until the bitter end. I’ve read all of Lexi’s books. Each one better than the next. Shall I say this is the BEST of the lot? I shall!
This book is Trish Mint Approved and gets 5 HOLLAS!!!
