Meet the Maverick Billionaires—sexy, self-made men from the wrong side of town who survived hell together and now have everything they ever wanted. But when each Maverick falls head-over-heels for an incredible woman he never saw coming, he will soon find that true love is the only thing he ever really needed... 

An exciting and emotional contemporary romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully! 

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Sebastian Montgomery rose from nothing to become one of the most powerful media moguls in the world. Yet beneath the seemingly perfect façade of his life, the past still haunts him. Because when he lost his parents in his teens, he also lost his faith in love. When he discovers Charlie Ballard and her incredible metal sculptures, he is awed, inspired—and he can’t help feeling things he swore never to let himself feel again. Soon, Sebastian wants not only Charlie’s art, he wants her as a woman, too. More than he’s ever wanted anything in his life. And what a Maverick wants, he always gets… 

For Charlie, Sebastian offers the commission of a lifetime. Creating a magnificent sculpture for his new headquarters is a dream come true, but falling for the spellbinding billionaire isn’t part of the plan...until his luscious kisses entice her into total recklessness. He fascinates and captivates her, and as Charlie learns more about the dark depths of Sebastian’s past, all she wants is to heal him with her love. But can a man who has grown up thinking love is toxic ever believe that true love is real?

I fell in love with each of the Mavericks in Breathless in Love, and more in love with Bella Andre's and Jennifer Skully's writing with each page. I couldn't wait to get to the next Maverick's story and have to say Bella and Jennifer totally delivered with Sebastian and Charlie's story.

I adored Reckless in Love. I have to say on more than one occasion, I just wanted to give Sebastian a hug. His biological parents cared more about their next fix than they did their own child. Susan, Bob and the other Mavericks became his family, yet Sebastian really still didn't completely understand love or the fact that one didn't have to be perfect to be loved. I loved that he was instantly attracted to Charlie and the attraction was completely mutual. Sebastian was so sweet to try and do anything to make Charlie's life easier, even when he messed up in his attempts.

Charlie is a super strong and independent character. I love that she turns junk from garage sales and junkyards into works of art. She is a bit of a free spirit when it comes to her art, and I think that is part of what makes her art so amazing. She has an amazing work ethic, partly because she is taking care of her mother along with her own bills. Charlie is just as attracted to Sebastian when they first meet, though she seems to want to take things much slower than Sebastian.

I really loved the romantic build up between Sebastian and Charlie. They had amazing chemistry and I loved that they waited for the right time to make love for the first time. There are lots of steamy make out scenes leading up to their first time together. It totally worked for me that Charlie wouldn't just jump into bed with Sebastian no matter how attracted she was to him. I also loved that Sebastian totally respected Charlie and was willing to wait until the time was right, and them being together was totally worth the wait. Seriously some smoking hot love scenes between Sebastian and Charlie. I loved them as a couple.

The only thing I didn't love about Sebastian was him trying to turn Charlie from a free-spirited artist to a high dollar commission obsessed artist. The stress of taking the commissions and being at parties all the time to promote her work, made Charlie question if Sebastian truly wanted Charlie for herself or if she had to change to fit into his world. I knew Sebastian loved Charlie just as much as she loved him, but sadly his childhood abandonment issues almost came between them. I could tell Sebastian totally thought he had Charlie’s best interest at heart and only wanted to help Charlie become the rock start artist she was in his eyes.

Reckless in Love was a pretty emotional read for me. I connected with both Charlie and Sebastian and loved them as a couple, even before they actually were a couple. I loved their chemistry and felt it only grew stronger the more they communicated their feelings and needs to one another. Reckless in Love pulled me in from the very beginning and had work not gotten in the way; I know I would have read it in one sitting. I will now wait on pins and needles for the next book in the Billionaire Mavericks series.
