Victor ‘Drake’ Drakovitch used to run a criminal empire, but he gave it all up for the woman he loves. Grace, an accomplished artist, abandoned the life she knew in order to be with the one man she could never live without.
Exiled to an island far from their former lives, the stay safe from the watchful eye of Drake’s many enemies. This Christmas, Drake wants to show Grace how much her sacrifice means. But what can he give a woman who shuns gold jewelry and diamonds, furs and expensive cars? Grace doesn’t want fancy things; she wants what Drake can give her—unquestioning devotion, fierce protection… and the best sex a woman has ever had.
First off, I want to apologise for the shortness of this review. Once I read the book and realised how short it was, well, there wasn’t much to write about.
I didn’t realise that Reckless Night is not a story into itself. It’s an epilogue of a HEA from the hero and heroine after their full length story. None of this is explained in the blurb, so I was quite annoyed because if I knew I would have never requested it. I also did not realise that this is a 40 page read. Despite the shortness of this story, I really didn’t like it. The dialogue was so stilted between Grace and Drake, and it seemed so old fashioned between them with ending their sentences with an endearment of, ‘my love’ in every other sentence.
In a sex scene, when Grace describes Drake’s penis as a hot club, I just about lost it laughing. And when Grace also tells us how aroused Drake is as he’s lost his syntax, I just about lost it there again. I don’t believe this is worth buying even if you followed the main story. So PLEASE be aware if you buy this it’s not a new short story. It’s a poor epilogue that if you’ll blink, you’ve already finished reading it.
I give Reckless Night a D.
