Reckless part 1 by Alice Ward

**This ARC was given to me by the author for my review**
4/5 stars
Part 1 of the steamy new adult erotic romance serial. 18+ only.
Even the best laid plans can be derailed.
Andrea Mercer had her entire life mapped out—everything from her career as a top journalist to her future CEO husband, white picket fence, and two-point five children. All she had to do was make it to graduation—three more months—and that perfect life would begin.
But Andrea isn’t immune to the life-altering forces that can derail even the best-laid plans . . . In Andrea’s case, that force is Jace Richardson, the tattooed sexy rocker god on campus.
Cocky, suave, and chauvinistic, Jace is everything that she can’t stand in a man. But it’s either cover the story on Jace’s band, Reckless, or lose the one thing that matters to her the most: her position at the campus paper. Only, as she begins to work on the column, Andrea learns that there’s more to the campus god than meets the eye.
Will Andrea be able to hold onto her dreams for the future as the sexy vocal guitarist flips her entire life upside down? Or will Jace light a fire in her that she never knew existed?

My Thoughts:
First- I have to compliment the cover.  I love the colors, how they flow together, the gold, silver, black, matching the clothes and the title and the background.  I liked it a lot, it was appealing to me, before I even really opened it up to start reading.

I enjoyed this short novella, or book, or whatever you want to call it.  It appealed to me because of the rock star angle, which is one of my favorite types of books.  The book drew me in right at the first scene, a phone sex scene that was hilarious.  The roommate/bff was awesome.  I like that the main character was headstrong, and career driven, and goal orientated, she knew what she wanted, for her job, and her future.  She was loyal, having how many years of college with the same boyfriend from back home? 

The book was so short, I wish there were more, I'm anxious to find out what is going to happen next, ready to read more.  It's pretty much the only thing I wasn't fond of, was the parts.  I wanna read em all at once all together.  The short "Parts" usually tend to take away from character buildup and stuff, but even with the shortness, I enjoyed what I read, the characters and the plot so far.  Can't wait to read the 2nd one.

This author is brand spanking new, which I appreciate this book even further because it showed promise that usually brand new authors don't show.  This book will be coming out in the coming weeks in September.  For now I don't see anything on goodreads or amazon just yet, but keep an eye out!
