Jade has always been the reckless type. But after her relationship implodes and her business goes under, she realizes it might be time to change her ways. She decides on a fresh start in a new place: Montana.

But shortly after her arrival in Big Sky Country, she meets headstrong wilderness retreat owner Maverick, whose name, fittingly, means “dissenter.” Jade tries to convince herself he’s not the type of man she needs in her life. The problem is, she wants him in her life. She wants him more than anything.

For Maverick, his attraction to this out-of-towner is undeniable. But he’s sworn off relationships—until he gets to know the fiery-haired, fiery-tempered Jade. He can’t help but wonder if it’s worth opening himself up to her. It’s a gamble, sure. But is it reckless?

Or is love a high-stakes game of risk and reward that just might pay off in the end?


Yes! Yes! Yes! I’m over the moon and head over heels in love with this series Aurora Rose Reynolds has created! I can’t get enough of these wild boys and their leading ladies! If you’re looking for the famous ARR BOOM, don’t hesitate to pick up this book, and overall, this series! I’ve been waiting for Maverick! Now it’s his turn to fall head over boots in love with his leading lady, and let me tell you all… this may just be the swooniest novel of the series. 

Reckless is the third book in Aurora Rose Reynolds’ Adventures in Love series. This swoony romance is told from both Maverick and Jade’s point of view.

Having just had her book shop dreams implode around her, Jade decides to pack up her things and move closer to her best friend, Cybil. Being closer to her best friend, who is like a sister, and her niece is what she needs now more than anything. Her goals are to get a job. She doesn’t bargain for Cybil making her an offer she can’t refuse. A partnership between the two of them and opening a bookshop right in the sleepy little town. Jade’s dreams are about to come true for a second time…. Hopefully this time isn’t like the last. I loved everything about Jade. From her independence to her vulnerability this woman was everything. Along the way, she dated her fair share of douche canoes so I couldn’t blame her when she wanted to keep her and Maverick’s relationship quiet and just feel things out. The fear of the unknown can be a real bitch sometimes.

Maverick hasn’t had the easiest life growing up. He’s okay living the bachelor lifestyle, but as he looks around at his best friends settling down, he can’t help but wonder if there is more to life. When Jade steps into the picture, he knows there is definitely more to life. And when he can’t erase her from his mind, he decides to do something drastic. He decides to date her. Oh Maverick, this sweet man. I legit swooned throughout this whole damn novel. 

The friendship level in this novel was my favorite aspect. I loved how close this group was. They had the kind of friendship where if someone was in trouble, the whole damn group would show up to rescue them. Honestly, I couldn’t wipe the smile from my face! So it should be known, half of Reckless I read while the last half I listened to the audio book while painting my barn. And believe me when I say, the folks who drove by on the road must have thought I was really happy to be painting. I’m telling you, the smiles this book took from me were huge! I loved every word, and I loved every moment! 

Now onto the audiobook portion of my review. This is the first time I actually synced an audio book up with my kindle. I honestly loved the interpretation these narrators gave. I’ll definitely be considering audio books when doing outdoors projects. 

Overall, I loved the Adventures In Love Series by Aurora Rose Reynolds. But I especially loved Maverick and Jade’s story. My heart still feels as light as it did yesterday. And that epic happily ever after. For a minute it was touch and go, and I was scared ARR was going to let me down. But then BOOOOOM! The magic happened. So yes, I recommend this one to everyone looking for a swoony small town romance with fresh start vibes and a lot of heart and heat. Definitely pick this one up if that sounds like it’s your type of read. You won’t regret it
