Reckless Love by Kendall Ryan Review


One reckless fighter.

One night of passion she can't forget.

The battle for sex and love is fierce and unrelenting.

And love is about to knock him on his ass.

Reckless Love can be read as a standalone novel, but is a follow up to the New York Times and USA Today bestseller Hard to Love.



The worst part about training mode was the no-pussy rule.

My intense training schedule, brutal workouts, and strict diet were nothing compared to the hell of not being able to satisfy my needy cock. I had a fight in less than a week, which meant I wasn’t going to see any action anytime soon, and the beautiful girl bouncing before me pushed every button I had. Pornographic thoughts ripped through my brain, making it difficult to concentrate on anything but the pulse throbbing in my erection.

A one-way mirror in the office faced the gym’s solitary treadmill. I’d come in to grab a drink from the mini fridge and was in the office when MacKenzie arrived, so when she jumped on the treadmill for her morning run, I figured I might as well sit for a minute and take in the view. But it was such a fucking cocktease, I wanted to punch someone.

Her body was a twelve out of ten. My dick was telling me to pull her hot ass off the treadmill, take her in the shower, spread her legs, and give her the best fuck she’d ever had.

MacKenzie was a treat for all the senses. From the breathy gasps of exertion pushing past her parted lips, to the rhythmic way her tits bounced, and the delectable feminine scent of deodorant and sweat I could smell whenever I was stupid enough to wander near her.

Though it wasn’t just about her fantastic tits and perfect ass. She had those in spades, but there was more to her. I could see it in her now. When most people went for a run, their faces relaxed and their eyes became unfocused as they zoned out. Their body might be running, but their mind was somewhere else as they bobbed along to their music.

When Kenzie ran, it wasn’t just her body in motion. Behind her gentle expression was a sense of determination. Initially I thought she was running away from something, but there was no fear in her eyes, only clarity of purpose. No, she wasn’t running from anything, she was running toward something.

Strength and determination in a woman were sexy as hell. I added those attributes to the list of things I liked about this girl, as if there weren’t enough already. I loved watching her push forward. Her confidence and her zing, combined with her…

Well, combined with her amazing tits. Perky and palm-sized, they were perfect. I couldn’t stop watching them bounce as she ran, the same way they would bounce if she rode me. Who invented one-way mirrors? I could fucking kiss them.

But I’d had my chance with her, and I screwed it up. Now she wouldn’t give me the time of day.

So this was all I could do—sit and watch from afar. Or nearby, now that she worked at the gym I trained in every single day. I should have switched gyms when she started working here, but all my fights were set up through the owner, Chris. Besides, Chris had worked hard to get me where I was today. Leaving him now that I was finally on the verge of breaking through would be a dick move.

So I was stuck. Who could dream up a more frustrating hell?


If you have read Hard to Love by Kendall Ryan, you will remember Ian and McKenzie being best friends to Cade and Alexa.  It was nice to see them make appearance in this book and it brought how much I loved that book!  
Ian is a professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter and trains at the gym where Kenzie works as a nurse to the athletes who train there, kind of like a physical therapist.  Ian and Kenzie were out with their friends and they hit it off in a matter of seconds.  Ian has rules when he is training for a fight; he trains hard, eats clean with no alcohol and he doesn't have sex! When things were about to get hot and heavy with the two, Ian stops what he is doing and takes her home.  Since then Kenize has felt humiliated and has a feeling she is unwanted.  Ian's and Kenzie's sexual tension builds and builds and gets to the point where the reader is ready to COMBUST, along with Kenize! It's very obvious that they want each other and Ian keeps denying his feelings for her. Kenzie tries to keep her mind off Ian by seeing someone else. The two can only hide their feelings for so long. When they do finally come together it was everything and more that I hoped it would be.

Kenzie is one of the best heroines in a book I've read lately! Everything she experienced or thought, felt or saw I experienced it along with her.  I really liked her and never got annoyed with her and completely loved every moment reading about her.  Her feelings for Ian were the same feelings that I felt.  I fell in love with Ian in the exact same way she did. She's the real girl we as women want to be:  independent.  When Ian and Kenzie are together they define sexual anticipation.  They are a walking, talking ball of sexiness! I don't think it's even possible to find the words to express just how much I really loved Ian.  He oozes sex with his physical appearance but inside he's flawed and is vulnerable and complex. He will do anything for anyone that cares about. 
I thoroughly enjoyed this sexy, endearing, fun, and heartfelt story about Ian and Kenzie! This is another FIVE LEAVES review for Kendall Ryan! I totally recommend this book and Hard to Love, so that you can witness the hotness of the two before they even got together!! Thanks, Kendall for another great read!!
