Toni del Rio specialized in turning real-life crime into bestselling fiction, and she was aware that danger came with the territory. This time, however, she was in over her head. While researching the New York underworld for her latest book, she'd witnessed a mob hit. Now a thug was pointing a gun at her in a shadowy alley, and she knew she was a goner....

Undercover FBI agent Nick Manelli wasn't about to kill anyone, but if he didn't hide the woman immediately, they would both be dead. So he brought her to the only haven he knew — his place.

Alone with Nick in close quarters, Toni couldn't help fantasizing about her rugged captor — and the desire, she soon discovered, was mutual...

Thoughts: Last week got an email for books on sale by Booksbub and Reckless was one of them. Liked the synopsis went to go buy on Amazon and guess what I already owned it. LOL. I knew I had a few books by Maggie Shayne but did not realize I already had this. Might be next read when in the mood for an Romantic Suspense. Really should bump this up to read since I clearly am trying to get it again. Maybe it is a sign to read me now.
Book was free when first got it in 2016. Still FREE at time of post.



  1. This sounds like a good romantic suspense! I like the whole undercover agent. protecting her from the mob plot! Thanks for sharing Jolee!

  2. Oh, that just cracks me up. If it wasn't for Amazon reminders, I'd have doubled up so many times especially b/c I wait so long that it has a new cover and everything half the time. :)

  3. This happens to me all the time! I just check and I picked up this book as a freebie back in 2016. I can't wait to see what you think of it!

  4. Hahaha lately this has happened to me LOL.

  5. Haha! I love it when this happens to me. I typically try to move the book up in the queue since, like you said, obviously I'm really interested in the story. ;)

    1. I have bumped this hope so hopefully I will get to it soon.

  6. This sounds like one I would like! I have done that before too--got another copy of a book I already had without realizing. It's a sign we really want to read a book! I hope you have a great week!

  7. Its always good to find a good romantic suspense!!

  8. I have had that happen to me to and sometimes it's print copies. Yikes! Oh well, its on me. I hope you enjoy this one.
