Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery
He talks dirty to me, but I don't know his name.
He wants to tie me up, but I don't know his face.
He turns me on, but I couldn't point him out in a crowd.
I've fallen for an anonymous stranger, and now the anonymity ends. I want more than typed secrets and texted promises. I want something reckless. Heat. Passion. The thrill of being entirely possessed.
Because I suspect this anonymous stranger isn't a stranger at all.
Lizzy Thompson met riverrat69 online through a service promising to deliver meaningful relationships by forbidding its users to share names or photos until they've reached a certain benchmark. She was looking for love. He was researching an investment. They hit it off. Talked and flirted, hid behind screen names and cartoon avatars.
Now they're breaking the rules and meeting in person. But Liz is prepared. She's picked up hints and followed clues. She's nearly convinced she's discovered the identity of her dirty-talking online friend.
She wonders if her ex-lover Sam Bradshaw knows her identity too.
When she rolls the dice on one reckless night, her chance at something real could crumble.
Something Reckless is part one of the Reckless & Real series. Part two, Something Real will be released in 2015.

5 "Oh What Tangled Webs We Weave When We Practice To Deceive" Stars! I loved both the mystery and passion angle of this new adult romance gem!
Please note that Book 1 of Reckless & Real includes the 75-page, prequel novella, Something Wild, which is also presently available for free on Amazon. In order to understand the history of the hero and heroine it is vital to read Something Wild before SOMETHING RECKLESS. Additionally, this book ends in a cliffhanger. So if you want know the conclusion to Sam and Liz's story, you will have to plan on reading the conclusion, Something Real, which is scheduled to be released in March 2015.
If you had been lusting and pining after one man, your best friend's older brother, for most of your life, and the opportunity to finally sate that dream presented itself, would you, especially knowing that it would only be one night? Could your heart stand walking away once you knew exactly what you were leaving behind? That's the precise conundrum that Liz is presented with, and then everything takes an unexpectedly, devastatingly horrible turn for the worst.
After life's cruel twist, Sam and Liz spend several years apart, trying their best to forget one another. Try though they might, their thoughts inevitably wander back to what could have been.
After two years, Liz finally decides it's time to move on and decides to try an online dating website named, Something Real. Something Real is a little unique, in that it doesn't allow its users to share pictures, or even real names, until they have attained certain hurdles in their online relationship.
By yet another strange twist of fate, that's where Liz meets Riverat69, a man who sounds promisingly familiar. The way he talks dirty to her and the things he wants to do seem like déjà vu and have Liz believing that it may finally be their time to be together.
But there are more interrelationships than meet the eye, and their own hearts are not the only things that have been deceived. As the facts begin unraveling, Liz will be faced with some of the hardest choices she's ever had to make, never mind that her heart is yet again painstakingly on the line.
Wow, I never would have expected the twisted nature of this book just from the prequel. I loved that there was a lot more depth and that Lexi Ryan keeps you guessing throughout most of this book, and she ends this book on one earthshattering, table-turning revelation. Now I can't wait to see how the tangled webs get unraveled. I need the final part, Something Real, now!
