Reckless by Saskia Walker

Erotic romances are one of my favorite genres to read. When you add some really good suspense, well-written characters and some hot romance it just doesn’t get much better than that. In Reckless, Saskia Walker delivered everything I love in a good erotic romance and more. I literally sat down and read this book in one sitting. Ms. Walker knows how to please a reader with her strong, sexy heroes and her fast-paced storylines.

Katrina Hammond is recovering from a badly ended relationship. Not only does she have to work with her ex, she feels like she is being constantly reminded of his infidelity throughout the relationship. Feeling undesirable and frumpy, she is flattered when the rich, handsome Sergio Teodoro insists on her to oversee the appraisal and auctioning off of the rare artwork his invalid father and deceased mother have collected over the years. Not only is Sergio persuasively sexy, he has let her know in no uncertain terms how much he is attracted to her and wants her in his bed.

Wanting to prove to herself that she is not the same old boring Katrina, she accepts Sergio’s offer to go to Spain to appraise the artwork. But when she arrives, things are not what they seem and she is soon overwhelmed by meeting Sergio’s disinherited brother Nicolas. Sparks fly between them and they find themselves irresistibly taken with one another.

When Nicolas secretly meets with Katrina and tries to convince her that his father would never sell the artwork, Katrina becomes confused. She doesn’t know who to believe – the sexy Sergio or the mysteriously handsome Nicolas. But the more she spends time at the Teodoro villa, she finds herself drawn to Nicolas and starts seeing Sergio as not the nice man she once thought he was.

Now Katrina wonders if Nicolas really wants her for herself or just as a means of getting revenge against his brother. As the fragile relationship between Katrina and Nicolas develops, danger and mystery surround them. Will it bring them together or pull them apart? Katrina and Nicolas are characters that are both interesting and fun to read about. I found myself lost in their storyline and was anxious to see how things were going to turn out.

Reckless by Saskia Walker was a romantic read from start to finish. It was interesting to see how Katrina evolved into a more self-assured woman. She wasn’t as beaten down by her past and was able to overcome her insecurities to be the best partner for Nicolas. Watching the trust and romance develop between them made Reckless a real page turner!

A word of warning to some readers. If you are offended by strong language and explicit sexual situations then this book is not for you. For more information on author Saskia Walker and her other works, please visit her web site at www.saskiawalker.co.uk.
