For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.
I'm a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.
I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.
Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce.
What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice.
My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her.

Nothing Reckless about these Two
What a nice, well-rounded read Reckless was! Lex Martin gives her readers two flawed characters that seem to fit together just right.
Tori and Ethan are each struggling in thier own ways, him becoming a single dad with a messy divorce on the horizon and her, trying to move on from her last relationship and her past altogether. She's done being that girl and takes a job with Ethan to prove it to herself as well as her sister.
Ethan works a horse/cattle ranch with his equally handsome brother, Logan. The soon to be ex-wife has moved out, his mom needs to go out of town, which leaves Ethan in need of a nanny. Not many people are looking to live out in the boonies, let alone on a farm, so finding a nanny has been slim pickings. Enter Tori, the sister of his friend's wife. Got all of that?
You can see what is going to happen with Ethan and Tori from a mile away, however the road to get there was an interesting one with all these two have going on in thier respective backgrounds. Lex Martin did a nice job with Ethan's ex, not letting her come on too strong or be too nice, she was the perfect amount of angst needed for the story.
The book is well written and has an epilogue with the perfect amount of details. I also appreciate that the supporting characters are just as interesting as the main ones. Tori's sister, Kat and her husband Brady are in the first book of the series and I'm going to go ahead and see what they're all about. Nice sexy read!
