In Vegas, a lot can happen in twenty-four hours.
What do you get when you mix a rock band as hot as Reckless Beat, women strong enough to capture several of the bad boys’ hearts, and a bet that sparks a competitive streak?
Boundaries will be pushed, alcohol will be abused, and loads of sarcasm will be shared.
Once the games are over, it’s time to make a commitment. But love in the limelight is never easy. The past is trying to catch up with the present, and the pressure may be too hard to handle.
Seduction, torment, laughter, and heartbreak—one reckless weekend will test each member of the band and the women who’ve claimed their love.
Leave it to the guys of rock band Reckless Beat to simultaneously make a reader laugh, cry and want to strangle them, hot or not!
In Reckless Weekend, author Eden Summers gives fans something to chew on while we wait for the next full length Reckless Beat novel. Eden manages to give each guy some page time while still moving the story along. Band members Sean, Ryan, Mason, Blake and Mitch love each other like brothers, definitely fight like brothers and those who are familiar with the series know that these guys just can't be in the same room together without getting into some kind of trouble!
More like a "What happened after Passionate Addiction," Reckless Weekend turns the sometimes juvenile but always loyal friends lose in Las Vegas for one last "Huzzah!" before Mitch and Alana get married.What starts off as a good intention meant to give the once sheltered Alana a night of harmless fun soon turns into chaos and revelations that force characters to confront issues that they've previously brushed under the rug.
Most novellas leave me feeling cheated because they're so rushed and have a heat level of one or worse. I love how Eden Summers can make a novella feel like a full length novel. I never feel like I'm being cheated out of my time or money and that's very important to me.
I always love being able to come back and see previous couples and with Reckless Weekend I feel I really got to spend quite a bit of time with not only Mitch and Alana but Blake and Gabi as well. As much fun as this story was, it's not just a filler story with no real use aside from a good time. Eden reminds readers of previous conflicts in a subtle way, hinting that the next Reckless Beat book won't be an easy one.
The characters, their connection and of course, their hijinks makes Reckless Weekend a rare treat that I'm happy to go back to over and over again.
Final Verdict: I have loved this series from the very start and Reckless Weekend is a welcome addition to that series. There's plenty of laughs to be had as well as some very sexy scenes with Mitch and Alana. If you haven't read this series before, this is a perfect way to sample this very entertaining group of people.
