First and foremost, I’ll say this: please read the series. Don’t be a weirdo like me and jump on this train at the tail end of the party. You’ll know so much more about what’s going on. And there is a lot going on.
With that being said, I’m definitely going to go back and read the rest of this series because I loved this book. It was fantastic! My first Beth White book and I’m hooked on these incredible sisters and their lovely men. I can’t wait to read their stories because their interactions are so fun.
A Reckless Love tells Aurora and Zane’s story and I couldn’t help but smile or swoon each time they shared a page. I loved their dynamic! Aurora is a bubbly, optimistic talker and Zane is the exact opposite, but they’re both brilliant in their own ways. They need each other and it’s beautiful.
I said before that there is a lot going on and I meant it. There are many names and situations to keep up with. The writing is smart enough to explain it and maintain the flow of all of the justice shenanigans. I struggled to keep up with all of the information, but I was missing the foundation of the first two books. However, even with that gap in my understanding, I knew enough to still be able to appreciate the way it played out.
I highly recommend this novel for fans of historical fiction, especially post-Civil War. Read the entire series, but definitely read them! This book is available now.
A grateful shout out to Revell for the complimentary copy of this book. All expressed opinions are mine.

Zane Sager. I mean, y’all. I would use all of the heart-eyed emojis here. And the interesting, beautiful thing about his character is that he is so obviously flawed. He wears an eye patch and he approaches situations with a gruffness that isn’t rude, but isn’t overly polite either. He thinks that he’s a “what you see is what you get” kind of guy, and I loved that Aurora shed light on a depth of character that was hidden even to him. By the end of the novel, it feels as if he’s a completely different character, but he’s not. He’s just finally open to himself and that was a very moving realization.
