Book Three of the Reckless Series A Contemporary New Adult College Romance
The stunning conclusion of Ellie and Logan's love story that began on a hot August night in Reckless Longing and continued through the depths of winter in Reckless Secrets...
My mother is a liar, a seductress, a keeper of family secrets, and a master manipulator. She took Austin from me. Now she claims she wants forgiveness. But she's after Logan. I know she is. He thinks he can protect me from her. I love him for trying, for playing hero, but he doesn't know her like I do. She'll charm him until he lets his guard down and then she'll strike so quickly he'll never see the attack coming. I may already be too late to stop it.
Logan's love is essential to me, like sunshine and deep nurturing breaths. He's my all. I can't live without him. But there's so much standing in the way of our happiness. As dangerous as she is, Mom is the least of my worries. I'm fighting the darkness Logan is struggling with, the upcoming trial, his family, and sometimes I even think I'm fighting a phantom of myself. But I won't give up. Ever.
I wish I could make El understand how much I love her, but I'm losing control. She makes me lose control. Since the abuse, that scares me shitless and brings back the guilt and the memories I want to erase. Things that have nothing to do with El, and everything because they affect the man I want to be for her.
I can't face losing her. I don't want her to hear the ugly truth about me, but I have to testify. I have to, even though I'm risking everything and fighting my dad and myself to do it. After it's over, will El still love me? I have to help her reconcile with her mom. Then maybe she'll understand.
This is a contemporary romance with mature themes, language, and situations. Readers should be over 17!My Review 4 STARS
This is the third book in the series and cannot be read as a stand alone book.
This book also follows directly on from the previous book and the final questions get answered and we get a happy ending alone with a sense of peace.
In this book we get more secrets along with Logans trial and we finally meet Ellie's mother Melissa and find out more about why she is like she is. I actually grew to like her mother, especially the way she looked after Ellie and Logan and helped out where she needed too.
I liked that we had Logan's point of view in this book too, i just felt that it was written wrong. Where Ellie's point of view is in the first person, Logan's point of view was in the third person, and it just did not work that way.
I would have loved the book to have anded with an epilogue to find out how the dynamic of everything would have panned out 6 months later when everything had settled down, but otherwise this book was better than the other books.
