Junk artist Charlie is happy with her life. Sure, it would be nice to make it big with her art but she’s perfectly happy teaching art at the community college and creating in her free time. She knows her art isn’t anything special. That’s why she can’t believe it when Sebastian shows up in her garage with a huge check.
As Sebastian and Charlie get to know each other, their differences in lifestyle start to overpower their connection. Can Sebastian and Charlie let go of their differences and get a chance at true love?

Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully are back with The Maverick Billionaires series! If you have followed my blog from the beginning, the first book in this series was one of my first reviews! You can read my review for Breathless in Love here. The second book, Reckless in Love, picks up where Breathless in Love left off but with a new Maverick brother. It can be read after the first book or as a standalone novel.
To be completely honest, Reckless in Love started off a little rocky for me. While I loved Charlie and Sebastian’s first meeting, there was something that bugged me a little bit. It was Sebastian’s thoughts. His insta-love for Charlie kind of weirded me out for a minute. Actually, insta-love isn’t the best way to describe it. He knew he wasn’t in love with her yet. It was more like an insta-I-think-this-is-the-woman-I-could-fall-in-love-with-just-from-seeing-her-once thing. I just wanted to shout, “You don’t even know her! She could be crazy!” at him. But I know it’s a romance novel and things usually move quickly for characters, so it didn’t bother me enough to ruin the story.
From there on, I truly enjoyed reading Reckless in Love. It was a sweet love story filled with real life relationship issues. Both Sebastian and Charlie doubted themselves a lot.
Despite being a billionaire, Sebastian had a lot of past hurt he was dealing with. It affected all of his decisions — especially ones he made about or for Charlie. Poor Charlie knew she was falling for Sebastian but she wasn’t sure if she was enough or if she could be the person he wanted.
I found these parts of the storyline very refreshing and real. I think most people have moments in relationships where they doubt themselves or wonder if they’re enough for the person they love. It was fulfilling to watch them really get to know each other and grow from what they learned about themselves and each other.
Reckless in Love was also filled with gorgeous descriptions. The authors described Charlie and Sebastian’s artwork so thoroughly that I could imagine exactly what it looked like.
If you’re looking for a sweet billionaire love story, this Reckless in Love is for you.
