Reckless River – Lindsay Cross

They say you can’t go home again. Jared Crowe never wanted to.
Home meant facing memories of abuse and neglect. Of dark closets and evil nightmares. Of his own relatives intent on killing him. But now his brother’s kidnapping forces him to face those demons. Only this time, Jared isn’t a scared little boy. He’s a full-grown Special Forces operative bent on revenge.
As a little girl, Sparrow Pickney risked her life to free two abused boys. As a grown woman Sparrow needs to earn a place in her adopted family’s business or be forced into a life of degradation. The chance to prove her family loyalty comes when she catches Jared spying on the compound and captures him.
When Jared sees his captor, he realizes she’s the girl of his dreams and vows to rescue her from a life of poverty. What Jared doesn’t know is Sparrow may not be the savior he remembers…but the one responsible for abducting and torturing his brother.
Jared is determined to find the truth. But that truth may be more than his heart can take.

So I went down a deep deep hole of reading Lindsay Cross’ books and I love it so much! So I’ve read Redemption RiverResurrection River, and Rebellious River and I loved them so much and I have high expectations for this!

Also, I love the fact we get a dossier of who is who at the start of the book, it always helps and I’ll never stop loving that!

I think it’s important to say that almost immediately this book was darker than the others and I liked the change and Lindsay Cross wrote it perfectly she manages to find a balance between the light and the dark and she did it so well! I think there is one thing I can say for definite and that is all of Lindsay’s books that I’ve read send me in a spin emotionally and she can apparently get me crying within a few chapters which not many authors can do that to me!

Jared I loved his character I felt bad for him so many times his conflicting feelings over Sparrow about Hoyt. He was such a great character and seeing him going all badass was so hot. I also loved how he had a caring side especially when Sparrow got hurt after trying to escape.

Sparrow oh I felt so bad for Sparrow after finally deciding to leave the mountains with Jared shit happens and he thinks she hurt Hoyt. She had such a shit time and was trying to survive in a world she didn’t even want to be in.

I loved the moments that Jared and Sparrow were together it was so cute and I loved that they built their relationship and they had some cute moments and he was so conflicted about liking her at one point. I loved that they essentially got their happy ending. It was interesting watching how they were being that not only was Jared a strong Alpha Male like the other females in this serious Sparrow was badass and strong and she had much more to prove.

I loved the plot I did not see where this story was going at all and my heart broke for Hoyt. One thing I didn’t see coming was Hoyt and Hayden but I think I totally ship it. So I am very excited for the next one!
