Book Review - Reckless Heat by Lynn Raye Harris

ABOUT THE BOOK


He’s my best friend.
He’s everything I ever wanted.
And he doesn’t know how I feel.
I have three weeks left to tell him before he leaves this place forever…

There’s only one way I know how to do that.
I have to give him what I’ve never given anyone.
I’m going to ask him to be my first…
 

Matt Girard is the guy every girl wants. Rich, handsome, and popular, his future is brighter than the sun. Evie Baker comes from the wrong side of town. She loves Matt desperately, but he only sees her as his tomboy best friend instead of the young woman she’s blossomed into. 

Until one fateful night when a reckless dare changes everything…

REVIEW

This story is a prequel to the first book in the Hostile Operations Team series, Hot Pursuit.  I was ecstatic when I found out that this story was going to feature Evie and Matt, my favorite couple from the series so far.  Something about the first book has really stuck with me and revisiting the characters was a real treat for me, although I think the story would be easy to follow having not read any of the other books.

The writing in this story is very different than the others, which I assume is a writing technique applied by Harris to show the difference between how adult brains and teenage brains think.  That point certainly comes across, but at times it is a little bit distracting from the story as a hole.  That said, the story is still excellent and engaging.  I still love Evie and Matt and if I didn't know what was going to come next for these two, the ending would have been heartbreaking.

Evie and Matt


OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
