A Shot Of Reckless

Author: Maddie Paige

Release Date: October 14th, 2015
Publisher: Elephantine Publishing


Art major, Roxy Thompson, is a ball of fun—but she's also careful to keep her walls intact when it comes to men. She likes relationships just like her coffee: light and sweet. After having her heart shattered once before, she’s determined not to ever feel that broken again. 

College senior, Lake Foster, is just tempting enough to make Roxy rethink her rules of engagement. Suddenly, high-dollar shots and a no-strings night out aren't enough anymore. But Lake isn't looking for long-term. His future is set, and in four months, he intends to graduate and leave Georgia—and everything in it—behind. Luckily, short-term fun is Roxy’s specialty, and Lake can’t resist what he promises will be a fleeting taste. 

Will Roxy and Lake really walk away when their time is up? They only have one shot to find out. 


My Review

A Shot of Reckless...if it could only be that easy.

Roxy is a love and leave them kind of gal. And by "love", that means a few weeks of fun and ditch them fast, before any kind of feelings come to play.  She has walls up, taller and stronger than Fort Knox, protecting her feelings, never letting anyone other than her best friend Taylor in.  Well, Abigail is starting to grow on her.

Roxy has rules. Strict rules on the dating scene.

THEN, as she is auctioning items for shots in her favorite bar, she meets Lake.  Lake has a sense of humor that matches Roxy's. Flirtatious and Fun.  Turns out, they are on the same page with the dating game, all fun and no commitments.

Both Roxy and Lake have issues in their past that keep them from opening up. However, the more time Roxy spends with Lake, that wall starts to come down brick by brick and it starts to make her panic.

A Shot of Reckless is a debut book written by two friends.  And how fun is it to discover new authors and dive deep into their imaginations.

This story is flirtatious and HOT as the sun.  I love Roxy's sense of humor, and her boldness.  As the story progresses, you learn about her past, and what caused her to build this wall of protection.  You learn that Lake isn't the player that he portrays himself as, and discover the heartache in his life.  Of course, there is drama along the way, with misunderstandings and the hardship of letting go.

College life can sure be fun, but life lessons are in abundance.  This story shows how you can learn by your mistakes, and how long time friendships should never be put on the side burner.

This is a fast read with blood boiling hot scenes,  that will give you that warm fuzzy feeling deep in your soul.
