Reckless - [A Dangerous Game]

Blackbird Publishing

Everything about him warned me to stay away. I'd seen bad boys before, but he had it all and more. The rippling muscles covered in tatts, the piercing eyes hiding dark secrets, the silky voice that could make a girl come with just a whisper . . . 

He was exactly the type of guy that would get me in trouble, but when he jumped off the stage, inked skin glistening with sweat and breathed his seductive words into my ear, I couldn't resist the temptation. 

It was supposed to be the best one-night stand of my life, but fate didn't let it play out that way. Things happened. I got upset. I got hasty. And worst of all, I got reckless. 

After that disaster, I thought it was the last I'd see of him. But what I didn't know was that I'd started something. 

Something that could shatter the very thing I had worked so hard to protect. 

I should have known back then that the most seductive things in life are also the most dangerous. 

Note: This is not a standalone book, it is an extended teaser for the full length novel: Reckless (The Forever Series).

Note: This is the beginning of Hunter & Lorrie's story. You DO NOT need to read any other books in The Forever Series before enjoying this one. 

“There would be no happy ending for us. He was too damaged. I was too broken.” 

Two years ago, Lorrie’s mother was murdered. But that wasn’t the end of it. Reeling from the tragedy, Lorrie’s father spiraled into alcohol, depression, and finally suicide. 

The two most important people in Lorrie’s life are both gone but she’s still alive. 

Trying to recover from the tragedy, Lorrie returns to campus, ready to pick up the pieces of her life. All Lorrie wants is to get back to “normal.” 

Then she meets Hunter. The man, the legend, “The Hammer.” 

Hunter is a cage fighter who takes on every fight like he’s got nothing to lose. His life is a tangled mess of girls, booze, and fist fights. And while it may seem like he’s got a devil-may-care attitude, he’s fighting a private cage-match with a monster he can’t defeat. 

Lorrie knows that Hunter is exactly the type of guy she should stay away from, especially in her fragile state, but Hunter has other ideas. 

As Hunter and Lorrie grow closer together, will they be able to overcome their pain and heal each other? Or will they both end up wrecked?
