Review by Suze
Addison has just lost her job and she needs to find something soon, otherwise she will be homeless. She has an interview for a position as a nanny for a baby girl, but when she arrives she discovers the person who's looking for someone to take care of his daughter Chloe is Collin, a man she met briefly on a night out. He tried to hit on her and help her out, but she left before he could do anything. Instead of a friendly approach Collin is rude to Addison. He is scared because she makes him feel again, but he isn't ready to move on. His girlfriend passed away and that's why he's now a single dad, living together with his two best friends to help him out. Will asking Addison to be Chloe's nanny be a dangerous decision?
Reckless Hearts is an emotional story about a man who's trying to raise his daughter the best he can. Collin can be rude. He's a big man with an attitude and he's used to getting his way, but he can also be sweet and sensitive. He feels deeply and isn't afraid to speak the truth. I liked his passionate character and determination. Addison missed a lot of love in her childhood and this has made her careful. When she meets Collin she keeps reacting instinctively, but her heart is ahead of her mind every time, so later she takes a step back. She can stand her ground and doesn't just accept Collin's demands and he needs someone who can stand up to him. Addison can be a bit tense and Collin can make her relax. They complement each other and they're a great match. I really enjoyed watching their relationship grow.
Heather Van Fleet writes about sensitive topics like losing your partner, raising a baby by yourself, childhood traumas and depression in an empathic way. Reckless Hearts is a story that's filled with emotion. Both the actions of the main characters and their dialogues are all meaningful. True love is wonderful, but it isn't easy and Heather Van Fleet writes about this topic in a terrific truthful way. She makes her characters and their thoughts and feelings seem very real. I love the honesty of her writing. Reckless Hearts is an amazing romantic story with a lovely fitting ending.
If you like to read romantic stories about gorgeous protective men in uniform, deep emotional relationships and plenty of sexy scenes Reckless Hearts is a great choice.
