Review: Reckless Games by M.J. Lowell

reckless gamesReviewed by Lynn Reynolds

This story is told in the first person.

Lucy Flannigan is mourning the loss of someone very special to her.  And then she overhears something she shouldn’t have.  Rhys Carlyle is a man who has quite the appetite for the ladies.  These two have a very interesting first meeting.  Rhys is one cocky man who is very sure of himself.  He’s a man of mystery and is hard to figure out but he certainly knows how to take care of a woman.

The situation surrounding them is very serious but there are times that you just can’t help chuckling.  As you read the scene where they are having tea, you’ll understand how smooth and cocky Rhys can be.  He’s also a man who knows what he wants sexually so this isn’t for the shy or who like things missionary or vanilla.

Tarot cards become a part of self-discovery for Lucy.  She’s given some choices that she needs to decide if she’s going to take.  My question to you – “Would you take the chance and listen to what the cards are telling you?”  Would you even go to a fortuneteller?  Are you willing to push you comfort zone boundaries?  You may even get some pleasurable ideas.

There are scenes that are going to be graphic and push sexual boundaries, but that just expresses the need between our two main characters.  This is not just a book where two people get together and have sex.  There’s also mystery and suspense that pulls this book together and then there’s the war that goes on between the head and the heart.  Music plays a small part and an excellent way to set the mood so if you like classical get your favorites playing in the background.  I found that this is a book that you can put down but the problem was trying to find just the right place to stop.  But when you get to the end, be prepared…  I look forward to see how our author does with the sequel.
