[Book Review + Giveaway] A Shot of Reckless by Maddie Paige

A Shot of Reckless
by Maddie Paige
Release Date: October 14th, 2015
Publisher: Elephantine Publishing

Art major, Roxy Thompson, is a ball of fun—but she's also careful to keep her walls intact when it comes to men. She likes relationships just like her coffee: light and sweet. After having her heart shattered once before, she’s determined not to ever feel that broken again.

College senior, Lake Foster, is just tempting enough to make Roxy rethink her rules of engagement. Suddenly, high-dollar shots and a no-strings night out aren't enough anymore. But Lake isn't looking for long-term. His future is set, and in four months, he intends to graduate and leave Georgia—and everything in it—behind. Luckily, short-term fun is Roxy’s specialty, and Lake can’t resist what he promises will be a fleeting taste.

Will Roxy and Lake really walk away when their time is up? They only have one shot to find out.

Being a debut novel, I never really have a lot of expectations going into them. However, the ravings online have been astonishing and I had to check it out. A Shot of Reckless really was an enjoyable read. Both of the main characters being fun and flirty throughout the book, it was easy to get lost in their charm and grin at the jokes that they threw around. Novel is written in the alternating perspective of Roxy and Lake, two people who didn't need any strings attached in their life. 

When Roxy meets Lake at a bar, he is exactly what she's looking for. Someone to not have to tell her life story and who can just be without feelings and emotions and simply have fun. But after the circumstances, they both started to feel like it was a lot more than night a couple of fun nights and wanted something more. The relationship that the author created is a very indication of what it means to fall in love when you least expect it and it is amazing! Incredibly flirty and fun, this book is a must read!

Writing duo Maddie Paige bonded over books, shirtless boys and Step Up movies. One lives for her coffee while the other prefers hot chocolate. Both lovers of romance, they tag teamed a manuscript over late nights at Steak 'n Shake. They live in Atlanta, GA and A Shot of Reckless is their debut.
