I love Matt and Evie story. As your reading the story you can see and feel them falling in love. Even though Matt was not ready to submit to those feeling yet. The read was also emotion to see what Matt had to deal with, with his father and the need to get away. It was really sad for me. I love the fact that Evie was a strong young lady, that was there for him, that constant shoulder to cry on if needed. But he was afraid to go past the friend zone he didn't want to risk losing her friendship. Teen love is a hard place to be. To do it or not is grown up decisions. This book touch on many subjects that young adults deal with. I felt so bad for the both of them. It just made me want to read Hot Pursuit again.

This is such a bittersweet story of young love and bestfriends on the cusp between high school and adulthood with all the passion and angst and unsure thoughts about the one who means the most to you. It will remind many readers of that time in their life where there are so many possibilities but little guaranteed for what the future will hold. A perfect prequel to the first story in the Hostile Operations Team story of Matt and Evie's reunion years later. I loved this novella.

Reckless Heat by Lynn Raye Harris is a well written book. Ms Harris has delivered a story of teenage angst and heartache that will capture your attention and hold it to the end. The characters in Reckless Heat are phenomenal. There's plenty of drama and a bit of sizzle to keep the pages turning. This book is a bit of a cliff-hanger as it's a prequel to Hot Pursuit. I enjoyed this book, and that's saying a lot because I avoid books about teens. I look forward to reading more from Lynn Raye Harris in the future. I purchased a copy of this book at a book signing event.

4.5 Star This is the beginning of Evangeline and Matt’s story. They were best friends until one day they grew apart. When Evangeline finds out he is leaving in three weeks she knows she has to tell him she loves him. She spends the three weeks trying to tell him. What happens when it leads to one night together and the words spoken after rip them both apart. Can they even be friends again or is this the end of everything? Matt is fighting his hatred of his father and his feelings for Evangeline but in the end will he ruin it all with a few misspoken words to the girl he loves? This is the prequel to Hot Pursuit (Hostile Operations Team, #1) so make sure after reading this you move on to that book for more of Evangeline and Matt.

I am a huge fan of the Hostile Operations Team series and adored Matt and Evie's story in book 1. I absolutely love that we got a chance to see them as teenagers in Reckless Heat. Reckless Heat is a novella length story and a super fast read. I guess since Matt and Evie were the first couple in the Hostile Operations Team series, they have an extra special place in my heart. I love a friends to lovers story and when you add in a reunion story, you have me from page one. Reckless Heat is Matt and Evie's story from the last few weeks they spend together before he heads off to West Point. I love that Evie and Matt where best friends from the time they were pretty young. I also absolutely loved that Evie had a crush on Matt and although he did know it, he really didn't want to do anything to possibly mess up their friendship. However, what teenage boy is going to turn down a teenage girl, even when it's his very best friend in the world? Honestly I though Matt was super sweet with Evie and I knew he didn't want to hurt her, but being a teenage guy, he just messed up once the deed was actually done. Of course Evie totally looked like she had been in the backseat with Matt and he was a total tool to brag to all his friends. Reckless Heat made me think of a high school keg party on the weekend and watching your best friend's drama play out before everyone. My heart broke for both Evie and Matt since neither really knew how to fix the situation. Reckless Heat was a super fast read for me. I loved the story came from alternating points of view and it is in first person point of view for those readers who aren't huge fans of first person point of view. I have no trouble with it and though it especially worked well with this story. I felt like I got new insight into Matt and Evie's relationship by seeing them together when they were teenagers.
