I’m in love with a man who tried to kill me. At least that’s what they tell me . . .

Six weeks ago, paramedics found me unconscious in my own home. Beaten. Bruised. Hardly breathing. When I woke up, I couldn’t remember the last three years or anything about my life in Jackson Harbor. They tell me my fiancé, Colton McKinley, is on the run for what he did to me. They tell me I’m safer if I stay away.

I don’t care if my memories ever come back. I want nothing to do with those missing years . . . until a sexy stranger with angry eyes shows up on my doorstep and demands I stop ignoring him.

Levi Jackson is my fiancé’s best friend, but seeing him sparks something inside me. As the truth unravels in my mind, I know they’re wrong about Colton. My own secrets are far more dangerous than the man I was engaged to.

I return to Jackson Harbor to search for answers and find myself running from a faceless boogeyman and seeking refuge in Levi’s arms. And in his bed.

I can’t deny my feelings for Levi. But as the pile of lies between us grows, I realize that sometimes the truth can’t set us free. It may be the very thing that could destroy us.

OFFICIAL REVIEW!

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

I have been madly in love with the Jackson brothers since the moment they were all introduced. What’s not to love? They all have a bit of mystery surrounding them and they are the sexiest beer brewing brothers around. I couldn’t wait to step back into this fictional world in Dirty Reckless love and get to know Levi Jackson on a more personal level. I went in knowing that there would be lots of heat and angst between Levi and Ellie, what I didn’t expect was for Lexi Ryan to give us a jaw dropping, drooling, sexy suspense that was a complete page turner! The mystery and forbidden aspect of Levi and Ellie’s relationship kept my heart and mind in over drive.

Ellie Courdrey has been through a traumatic experience and now has to decide whether to stay in her hometown or go back to Jackson Harbor and try to recover her memories. I love that Lexi Ryan starts her readers out with a blank slate right alongside Ellie and we get to live through all of Ellie’s memories and fall in love with both her fiance and Levi all over again and gradually see the danger that is just steps behind her.

Levi Jackson is a man who has been suffering from loving his best friend’s girl from afar. That is until she is beaten almost to death and he will do anything to protect her. I fell hard for this Jackson brother who stands back with his heart in his hand and is just a friend until passions explode. You can’t help but want Levi to have it all with Ellie because he is the man that she needs and wants deep in her heart.

Lexi Ryan delivers a love story full of secrets, lies, and intrigue that will have you overheated and brimming with emotions and curiosity from beginning to end. I highly recommend Dirty Reckless Love for a romance that is unpredictable, hot, and keeps you on your toes! There hasn’t been a book of Lexi Ryan’s that I have read that I haven’t loved but I do have to say that Dirty Reckless Love and Spinning Out from her Blackhawk Boys series are my favorite because all the sexy suspense. I cannot wait to see what Lexi has planned for her fans next.

Excerpt:

The man searches my face. “That’s why you won’t come home. You’re afraid of Colton.”

“I don’t want anything to do with that life.”

He exhales heavily and rolls his shoulders back, as if he’s trying to shake off a ghost. “That’s not fair to the rest of us. To everyone who loves you, everyone who was sick with worry when they put you into that coma. Not. Fucking. Fair.”

I shrug. “Maybe losing a child and almost dying has made me a little selfish.”

His gaze drifts down to my stomach, and I cover it with my hand without thinking. “I’m sorry about the baby.”

I nod, tears springing to my eyes. “Me too.” So sorry.

“I understand if you want to live here now, but don’t cut us out. We all lost something that night.”

“Did you?”

He narrows his eyes. “You think I didn’t care? That this was all some game to me, and losing you was nothing?”

I wrap my arms around my chest, as if the pressure might weaken this force pulling me toward him by the solar plexus, this inexplicable need to be closer and let him wrap me in his arms. “Losing me? When was I ever yours to lose?”

He jerks his gaze away from me, slides off his stool, and downs the rest of his beer. “Thanks. I guess that clears up where we stand after everything.”

I open my mouth to apologize but swallow the words and meet his steady gaze.

Then he backs away and grabs his bags off the bar. He pulls an envelope from his pocket and hands it to me. “I was going to leave this for you with the barista next door, but I guess I can save myself the trouble.”

“What is it?” I ask, staring at the crisp black calligraphy that reads Ellie Courdrey.

“An invitation to Ava and Jake’s wedding. Despite what you seem to think of me, I’m not fucking my future sister-in-law.”

“Their wedding?”

He nods. “They thought about canceling after everything, but . . .” He stares at me for a long beat. “They decided to put love first.”

That feels like a jab. At me? At them? I don’t know. “I don’t want to go back there.”

“Maybe it’s not always about what you want.” He shrugs as if it’s no different to him either way, but I can tell by the tension in his shoulders that it matters a lot.

He steps forward—too close—and I let him, closing my eyes at his scent. Then a flash.

He’s over me. The weight of him presses into my hips, his calloused hands holding my face, his fingers in my hair. “You’re sure?”

I nod. Slide my hands down his back and lift my hips. “Yes. Please.”

He searches my eyes. “No regrets.”

I hold on to the memory of this man, wanting to examine it, to figure out what it means, but I’m too distracted by his closeness in this moment. He’s big. Strong. Warm.

He lowers his mouth to my ear. “I never stopped loving you. Even when you told me to. Even when you chose him.” And then he walks away.
