Wes Elliott just met his match…and she might actually burn his entire world down.
Surfing and sex. This is Wes Elliott’s life. And it’s just the way he likes it. `
After seeing his parents stay in a loveless marriage his entire life, and burying away a heartbreak from his past, he knows where romance is best left: crappy chick movies. He’d rather lust and eventually leave, and that’s exactly what the plan was when he met Lana Langston.
Except…turns out she’s only in it for the thrills, too. She’s always only in it for the thrills: life in the literal fast lane on her motorcycle, and the hot nights in forbidden places without the awkward talks in the mornings after. She’s Wes Elliott in way tighter jeans.
So, this should be perfect, right?
But the more time Wes spends with her, the more he wants the nights to turn into mornings. And maybe even longer. Suddenly, it isn’t so perfect for him anymore.
And the things he thought were buried are digging themselves up.
Now Wes is in a lot of trouble.
He’s falling in love with the one girl who might be a bigger risk than even a guy who gets barreled by the most dangerous waves in the world is willing to take on.
Can Wes and Lana figure out a way to make it work? Or is he headed for something far more reckless?
Due to the sexual content, language and violence, this work is not recommended for readers under 18.
She kept a tiny smile on her face as her gaze wandered over the length of his frame, but she paused in specific areas: his eyes, his chest and his mid-section. Wes loved that she was checking him out, and doing it so openly. No doubt, it excited him and he gladly let her indulge; he had nothing to be insecure about. The cordial sibling rivalry between him and Abel kept him in the gym at least four days a week, women seemed to dig his tattoo sleeve, and his looking like the stereotypical tall, blond surfer didn’t hurt, either. He let Abel have the longer hair though, opting to keep his short but enough to still let women run their fingers through.
“What are you doing tonight?” she asked.
Wes grinned. He really liked how forward she was. “My brother and I are going up to Malibu. Waves are better than usual.”
“You surf?” Lana reached down to fiddle with something on her bike, and Wes tilted his head to stare at her butt again. She had her phone in her hands once she was upright again, so he pulled his out. She recited her phone number, and he called it so that she could have his, too.
“Yeah, we both surf. Professionally.”
Lana dropped her hand to her hip. “Of course, sexy, tattooed blondie surfs.”
“You think I’m sexy?” Wes cocked a half-grin. He was but he liked hearing her say it. He leaned against the back of his SUV and crossed his arms over his chest.
“I think you think you’re sexy!”
“You’re thinking it, too, though,” he declared.

Guest Post ~ What inspired you to write Recklessly?
I started chatting with the manager and the good friend of a pro surfer a few years ago thanks to Twitter, and as a result, I became a fan of the surfer. I had the opportunity to attend his movie premiere sometime after that, and I was introduced to a world that isn’t followed by the mainstream but has a pretty dedicated fan base. It was almost like stepping into a secret society. And it didn’t hurt that there were all these gorgeous male surfers walking around, either.
And as I watched the movie, I was awestruck by all the amazing locales where this guy “works”—Fiji, Tahiti, Hawaii, Indonesia. He gets paid to go to beautiful places to seek out the best waves in the world. It was really cool to me that there were people out there who got to do this for a living. It’s sort of a lifestyle, really. So Wes, the main character in Recklessly, was born out of that.
