Reckless is a delicious contemporary romance that combines the excitement of the dangerous world of firefighting with a sympathy-evoking insight into the challenges of helping people who are struggling to survive. The conflict between the irrepressible Alex with the deliberate and quietly stubborn Zoe is well portrayed. The heat that builds between them is irresistible. The challenges that each faces allows them to show their true strengths and the way they force growth by daring each other to act out of their comfort zones is heartwarming. I think that the end is wrapped up a little abruptly. I hope they will have roles in future stories since there are plenty of other sexy guys who undoubtedly will get a chance in the spotlight. This was a fun, sensual, and exciting story, and I look forward to reading other works in the Rescue Squad series.
Reckless by Kimberly Kincaid is part of the Rescue Squad series and follows adrenaline junkie Alex Donovan as he is forced to atone for his reckless behavior by reluctantly performing community service. Zoe Westin has eschewed a career-boosting position at a posh restaurant to pursue her dreams and is struggling to keep her soup kitchen afloat. The last thing she needs is a cocky firefighter from her father’s station to complicate things, until she figures out that they each can benefit from working together.
Someone’s Bound To Get Burned…
Zoe Westin may be a fire captain’s daughter, but feeding the people in her hometown of Fairview is her number one priority. Running a soup kitchen is also the perfect way to prove to her dad that helping people doesn’t always mean risking life and limb. But when she's saddled with a gorgeous firefighter doing community service after yet another daredevil stunt, the kitchen has never been so hot.
Alex Donovan thrives on adrenaline, and stirring a pot of soup doesn’t exactly qualify. He’s not an expert at following the rules either, not even when they come from the stubborn, sexy daughter of the man who's not only his boss, but his mentor. Determined to show Zoe that not every risk ends in catastrophe, Alex challenges her both in the kitchen and out. One reckless step leads to another, but will falling for each other be a risk worth taking, or will it just get them burned?
