"Sweet, funny, romantic and oh so very sexy! Prepare to swoon mightily."—SAWYER BENNETT, New York Times bestselling author, for Reckless Hearts
Gavin St. James
After the hell I've been through in the Marines—in life—there's nothing I crave more than routine, stability, peace. Until McKenna Brewer walks into my life.
She's impulsive, fiery, tempting as hell, and everything I don't need. But when she offers me a night of no-strings-attached passion, I can't resist.
When our night together has unexpected consequences, I can't help but think this might be the perfect opportunity to show McKenna just how much I want her.
The only problem? She doesn't do forevers. But forever is exactly what I need with her.

I really enjoyed the fact that both lead characters have personality flaws. So neither was saving the other. They were saving each other. By taking a chance on that this was the one person who got them. Who would always have their best interest at heart. The fact that she got pregnant allowed us to see how hard it sometimes is for a woman to do the best thing possible. There were so many relevant social issues that his will appeal to everyone. This is one book you should read if you want a love story with real issues and hard choices to make.
Recklessly ever after surprised me. I like my males dominant and alpha. Gavin didn’t fit this type but he totally won me over. Gavin is an ex-marine and wants life to be easy. His past means he likes stability and routine. He chooses the sensible option. McKenna is a loose cannon and a commitment-phobic. She is everything Gavin should stay away from. She likes her guys easy and short-term. Stuck in a lift, Gavin needs to take his mind off the situation. He finds himself lip-locked with the girl he wants most, but she gives him the brush off as soon as it’s over. Gavins determined to get what he wants even if he has to play it safe. McKenna has been let down by too many people to consider dating. She doesn’t get close to people. Only a few have broken down her walls. She works as a nurse and has a busy life. She wants the easy one night stand kind of guys. She knows she should stay away from Gavin but one night with him will change her forever. I liked that the girl is the one doing the running. She doesn’t want commitment and this works really well in this book. Both characters have a troubled past and are perfect for each other. Gavin is a sweet patient guy who turned out very likeable. As I said, I like a strong alpha and Gavin has too many demons to fit this type, but the author creates a perfect guy. I really enjoyed this book. The twists made the story work well. It had some funny moments and some sexy scenes. 4.5 stars out of 5. *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. The first two books are on offer at the moment and I had to have them. Recklessly ever after is the third book in the series and the characters do feature in this one but I don’t think reading them in the wrong order will affect my enjoyment. It just shows something different from the usual can be good!
4.5* Oh Gavin how you break my heart! I absolutely loved Gavin - he definitely fits the saying strong and silent. He doesn't say much but when he does everyone listens. He has scars from his past that follow him to this day. When he met McKenna through mutual friends he started falling for her but she's not what he needs. He needs someone that's going to be around for the long haul, not just for a night. McKenna has her own scars that make her the way she is. When Gavin and her get stuck in an elevator she helps him through the experience. It makes Gavin feel even more for her. I loved how Gavin was with McKenna, he may be scared but he talks to her about everything. He gives her pieces of himself that others don't get. When McKenna needs him the most, he's there for her. When she's confused and lost, he tries to show her the way. Will Gavin be able to make her see that they're perfect for each other or will she be too scared to reach for what she wants?
Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) This is the third book in this series, Gavin's book and we have been waiting for it. Gavin broke your heart with what he was dealing with and his memories. I wish they would have found some better for him than McKenna I was not a fan of hers and even though she finally reciprocated his love still wasn't crazy about her. But it was good to read of the past couples.
5 Stars Review by Elizabeth Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Recklessly Ever After is installment three in the Reckless Hearts series, but can be read as a standalone. And let me tell you, Heather Van Fleet really knows how to grab your attention. I was instantly hooked to this book from page one. McKenna and Gavin are both so much alike yet so different. McKenna has so many issues and does not do relationships. Gavin too, has his issues yet he wants a future, a future with McKenna. Is it possible when you have two characters that need to overcome their past? Let go of their issues? I was drawn in by both McKenna and Gavin. McKenna did grate my nerves a bit, but you learn to love her. Gavin is hard not to love from the beginning. The roles really reversed when their one night of no string passion turns into an unexpected pregnancy. Usually it is the woman who feels and reacts in certain ways, yet in Recklessly Ever After it is not. I was so enthralled by the emotions from both McKenna and Gavin. If you want to read a great book with a plethora of emotions, read this one. I will definitely be one clicking and re-reading after release day.
Gavin and McKenna are perfectly, imperfect. He sets carefully placed boundaries to keep him on course. She lives in the moment. Apart they are two halves of a whole. Together they become a combustible force that is destined to have lasting consequences. Recklessly Ever After is a walk on the wild side. In our minds, we think we have life all figured out until fate surprises us by changing all of our plans. Fleet turns temptation into forever and shakes up the heart along the way.
