While Gedeon "Player" Lazaroff is one of Torpedo Ink motorcycle club's roughest members, he's also one of the calmest. Little rattles Player, except for the times his gift gets the better of him. When that happens, he has to just lie down in the dark and hope for the best. But on a night when he's on the verge of losing it, he meets a woman who manages to soothe his fractured mind.
Zyah is a striking, ethereal beauty who seduces him with every word and move. Their night together is one of pure, exquisite bliss. But when Player gets confused and thinks their intimate encounter was nothing more than a dream, his careless dismissal leaves her humiliated and angry.
Now, Player will have to devote his every breath to convincing Zyah to give him a second chance. Because she might be the only one who can save him from himself....
Reckless Road continues the story of the men of Torpedo Ink. I love this series and was excited for this entry. Player hasn’t been a huge focus before and I was interested in his story. His psychic talent is fascinating and Reckless Road blends every element about the club I have come to love!
There are parallel plots to Reckless road: old people are being beaten and robbed and the club has stepped in to protect a few; Player’s illusions are creating a dangerous alternate reality that could kill everyone. The love story follows both plots and is woven in perfectly. I loved Player and Zyah. Zyah is very grounded and far too kind to everyone. She cares so deeply about people, and she has her own gifts. She thought Player was her soulmate, but then he crushed her. Player loved Zyah from the moment they met, but he pushed her away because he was in danger. God save us all from men who think they know what’s best.
Reckless Road is a long book at 480 pages, but it never felt long to me. Its scorching hot, danger filled, and touchingly romantic. Readers who enjoy a touch of the mystical in their romance will delight in this book and its unique love story.
