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 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 nearly 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.

Something Reckless is part one of the Reckless & Real series. Part two, Something Real will be released in 2015.

I was so happy when I found out about Lexi Ryan’s newest book. If you haven’t read any of her books, you don’t know what you are missing! Ever since Lost In Me, I have been a fan.  Now it is Lizzy and Sam’s turn to have a little romance and hopefully a happy ending.  I will try not to be too spoilery for this review. 

Lizzy has always had a thing for Sam. But he has a bad boy reputation. Despite that reputation, Lizzy still want to go for it.  But Sam doesn’t do relationships, and only wants a sexual relationship with Liz. She claims she is okay with that. But when a bad situation ends up causing problems between Lizzy, Sam’s sister and her fiance., it also ends up putting a strain on her friendship with Sam.

In an attempt to find something real like her sisters and friends, she signs up for an online dating site where she meets a man who she is hoping is really Sam.

Lizzy is a strong woman who knows what she wants. She has goals and ambitions, but she doesn’t always make the best decisions. She has good intentions, but those intentions sometimes lead to bad choices.
Sam  is a dominate, sexy man who wants no complications in his life. Especially when it comes to Lizzy. He feels things for her that he hasn’t with any other woman he’s been with. But his past issues are keeping him from having something more with her.

Both Liz and Sam have emotional barriers that are stopping them from being together.  Not to mention secrets. Their chemistry is scorching hot for sure, and the more I read, the more I was hoping they would move past everything and take a chance on each other. But if I was hoping everything was going to be resolved neatly and happily by the end of this book, it was just wishful thinking on my part. Beware there is a cliffhanger with this one!

In the end, Something Reckless was a thoroughly satisfying read. It met my expectations and then some. I am just super disappointed that I have to wait until March 3, 2015 to find out what happens next!! Before you read this, I would definitely recommend reading the free novela, Something Wild first.

RATING: 4 out of 5.
