    Reckless is book 2 of Brazen Series, by Maya Banks one of my favorite authors.Yep, this was an improved book from the first in the series. Sheriff J.T. Summers and Nikki Durant’s romp in Barley was chaotic from the start, like being in a Waring blender. J.T. promised Nikki’s brother Lucas, to look after Nikki while he was away in the service.Nikki had lusted after J.T. since a young teen, and returning from college to Barley, she got herself arrested to get the attention of the sheriff. A quick STEAMY flammable erotic fun story emerged. Yet another great Maya Banks read!

    HA HA sucks to be J.T.! I found this e-book yesterday morning while I was checking out the "shop" on my Nook. The synopsis alone was enough to make me break my book buying ban.Reckless is about a small town sheriff (the towns name is Barley...yes like Oats and Barley.) named J.T. who is trying really hard to fight his lust and feelings for his best friends little sister Nikki. Now Nikki on the other hand is absolutely determined to make him hers, even though he's 12 years older than her...Failure is NOT an option.She's been in love with him for many years and now that she's back in town and both of them are responsible adults she's not letting him get away without out a fight...Even if it means that she has to get herself arrested to achieve her goal.Then when they finally get together there are shocking realities (in J.T.'s case), sizzling sex and a huge case of misunderstandings on both of their parts. But there is a happy ending for all parties.This is the stand-alone sequel to Brazen (yes I broke my ban again to buy Brazen). The main characters from Brazen make an appearance in Reckless as well.

    The Perfect Sultry Fix for an Afternoon Romp! With a CAPITAL~~~H.O.T.!J.T. Summers has been fantasizing about Nikki Durant, his best friend Lucas's kid sister, for years. However like every honorable, self-righteous man, J.T. refuses to act upon those lurid desires.Nikki's been infatuated with J.T. since the night he brought the devastating news that her mother will not be returning home. That she has skipped town with her latest, "boy toy." Leaving Lucas and Nikki to fend for themselves.Now Nikki's back from college and determined more than ever to crack J.T.'s exterior, and brake through the layers surrounding his WICKED INSATIABLE THIRST for her. By backing him into a corner, and UNLEASHING her SULTRY, SEDUCTIVE FURY upon him.Yet will that be enough for J.T. to have a change of heart? Could they truly make a go at it and live, "Happily-Ever-After?" You're going to have to read and find out!It has been awhile since I've read a Maya Banks novel, and she DEFINITELY has NOT disappointed me.Has this type of storyline been written before? Of course it has! Nevertheless, it always has us "HOPELESS ROMANTIC'S," CRAVING for MORE!!ONCE AGAIN, WELL DONE MS. BANKS! WELL BEYOND A 10 STAR RATING!

    Nikki knows that to J.T she´s just his best friend´s kid sister, but how can she convince him that she´s more than that?J.T promised to take care and look out for Nikki when her brother deployed but she´s just so tempting. Hiding out at work seems to be the only way to stay away from her. Until she manages to get arrested. Showing up in cuffs should do the trick, right?Quick read, contemporary romance and smutty fluff in a great combo. Listened to the audioversion and the narrator was great.

    Short Novella Missing Emotional WeightTHE STORY: J.T. Summers is the sheriff in a small town and has a problem. His best friend's sister is back in town and she is after him. J.T. promised her brother that he would keep an eye on her. Now all he wants to do is avoid her because she is hunting him and he is lusting after her. Nikki Durant knows that J.T. is the one for her. She just needs to convince him.OPINION: This was a mildly pleasant story but it just doesn't have compelling enough characters or emotional weight to be memorable. I think it is one of those stories that I'm not sorry that I read but am unlikely to read again. Nikki seems immature to me and I didn't feel any connection between her and J.T. It seemed more like a childish obsession than serious love. WORTH MENTIONING: There is an appearance by the heroine and heroes from BRAZEN for fans of that book.FINAL DECISION: This novella is a perfectly adequate one time read. CONNECTED BOOKS: This is the sequel to BRAZEN.STAR RATING: I give this novella 3 stars.

    Fantastic readVery witty and fun to read. I was rooting for Nikkie all the way, even knowing she would get JT in the end. it was a good giggle learning what she would try next, and how far he would go. I loved it

    Nikki has balls of brass, she has more confidence in herself than I've ever read. J.T. didn't have a chance. J.T. is an ass and he doesn't deserve her. Not my favorite Maya book, listened to it on audio, not sure if that made a difference or not.

    Nikki has been in love with her older brother Lucas' best friend JT for most of her life. JT, as a small town sheriff, has sworn to protect Nikki. Except that Nikki doesn't need protection, JT does. From Nikki's obsession with him. Her not so subtle seduction tricks at getting JT into bed include getting arrested, getting a friend to get JT over to their pool where she is currently lying naked in wait, and showing up to the police station wearing very little.Once Nikki finally gets her man, he makes her feel like her mother, who was the town whore. When JT realizes that he actually has feelings for Nikki, she is no longer interested. This was the second book in the Brazen series, and it was just okay. It wasn't up to Maya Banks' usual erotic fare. It seemed like Ms. Banks had an idea in mind, but never quite fleshed it out fully. Nikki hated the town she grew up in, kept making illusions as to how horrible it was, but never delved into the why. When it was finally revealed that her mother had a new "boyfriend" on an almost weekly basis, and then ran off with one of them, the reader might be able to guess that Nikki was made fun of because of her mom, but it's an assumption, and the assumption includes her being made fun of. It could have been worse. We'll never know.The only reason that the reader is given as to why JT doesn't want to be with Nikki is because of the 12 year age difference. But yet, he loves her. Huh? Again, not one of Ms. Banks' best.

    Nikki and J.T. Pretty short story but a fun read. Spent a lot of the book wanting to slap JT upside the head, but he makes up for it in the end with some spectacular grovelling. I listened to the audio book and found the reader a bit annoying with her pseudo wannabe sultry voice. But it was OK. The story is better and maybe I would have liked the side characters better if I had read it instead of listened to it. Nikki has had a crush on her older brother's friend JT since she was little. She has just graduated college and is 22 and comes back to her small town with the sole purpose of finally catching JT. He's 12 years her senior so it is a pretty big gap and I can understand why JT would be hesitant. But he is so stubborn that I was kinda scratching my head after a while. I suppose Nikki's way of attracting his attention could be misconstrued as being only a sexual interest. It would have been nice if there had been more dialogue between them than the usual sexually suggestive comments. But it is a short story and the ending really was fun! Now her brother Lucas... that guy needs his own book!

    Maya Banks is one of the best writers of Erotic Romances her strength in creating characters that the reader likes and cares about is consistent. You know when you spend your money that you will get great characters, fun story and some steam that will make you squirm in your chair. This novella checked all the boxes, I love JT and thought Nikki was a great heroine. I loved how she was going for what she wanted no holds barred, it was a refreshing change in a romance novel. I liked JT in Brazen and was looking forward to his story. I think this couple needed a full length novel. The story would have been better if there was time to create more depth and get into the characters head more..and create a bit more friction. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the book as I do all MB's novels but when I finished I was left with the "thats it?" feeling. I liked the characters and I wanted more. 3 stars for me but it had the potential to be a 5 star novel. t'irla t'irla's talk Book Blog tirlastalk.blogspot.ca

    Well, it's kind of weird. Nikki's all over J. T.'s face. She's been following him everywhere. It's obvious that she likes him but the problem is, J. T. didn't see that. He just see Nikki as his best friend little sister who just stop by in his town when she got holiday from college. He likes Nikki, but he didn't think of her "that" way, not until Nikki flashing him her body. He's burning now. But will J. T. realize that Nikki's not playing games? That she's genuinely like him? It's a major turn off to me when I read Nikki's throwing herself towards J. T. I mean, I know she likes him but seriously? What he doesn't like you back, girl? Poor Nikki. I liked her guts so much. And J. T., dude, get over it. ;)

    JT does a favor for a friend that could get him into some real HOT water. This favor requires more will power than he could have ever imagined would be required.Nikki is home from college and she is causing more trouble all in the name of getting a little attention. Not just from anyone but from the man she has loved since she was fifteen. JT is her big brother's best friend and he has been tasked with keeping an eye on her. She is nothing like her mother but the men of the town seems to think otherwise.Nikki has a big job ahead of her working to get JT in more than just a compromising position.Nice quick read with a chase that makes you laugh.

    This is the sort-of sequel to Brazen. J.T. is the sheriff who makes a couple of appearances in Brazen. In this book, he is chased (practially stalked) by Nikki.Nikki is J.T.'s best friend's little sister. The best friend asks J.T. to watch out for her. Nikki tries everything she can think of to seduce J.T. but he is stuck thinking about how the older brother would react if something happened to her.I found the story line somewhat tired. The love scenes weren't all that original either. It was a quick fluff read.

    I was procrastinating reading this book since months, today just seemed to be 'the day'. It was a short story, not the best romance but okay. Honestly, I like plots and suspense even in short stories and if its a romance, then I need a good and loving story where I actually like one of the main characters if not both. I didn't find any story in this novel. It was too short and fast for my liking. It can be read as a standalone (though I am not recommending it)2.5 stars.

    This book was okay. It was a quick read. I felt sorry for JT. What was he supposed to think with his best friends younger sister coming on to him so strong. Who in their right mind wouldn't think she was just wanting a good time? Who would think she was a virgin? If she loved him and wanted a real relationship she went about it the wrong way. Then for everyone to treat JT like some huge jerk really annoyed me.

    This one was everything that Brazen should have been! Men can be so stubborn so you gotta hand it to Nikki for going after what she wants! Both she and J.T. were very likable characters. Reckless is what I would call a fluff piece. Its a fun, quick, easy read that doesn't require you to think too much. It is one of those books that are purely for entertainment only. That's great because sometimes you just need to relax and have a little fun.

    It's a good story but I found it a little disappointing at the same time. I think Nikki's actions are too extreme and uncaring towards J.T. He is a serious sheriff in a very small Texas town and to take her antics into his station was disrespectful. With that said, I'm guessing her lack of maturity and inexperience makes her behave in such a manner. But, that is why J.T. thinks she's playing games with him.

    Final Score - 5 StarsKinda a sequel to Brazen, but totally a stand alone on its own. Would you mess around with your best friends little sister, even knowing that she's blatantly throwing herself at you?Can't exactly fault J.T. with the dilemma he was faced with. Nikki after all learned from the best (thanks to Jasmine making an appearance).Quickly salacious read. Loved every second of it!
