It’s what keeps you from being reckless. It’s what keeps you breathing.
Money, power and respect… they were my god given right, not the reason I joined the Satan’s Knights. I tied myself to my club and nothing else. Give me my bike, the open road and a different woman every night and I was happy. 
My life was great.
Until the chaos exploded.
One night.
One reckless temptation and I finally found my reason for breathing. 
I never saw her coming. The girl that would turn my world upside down and give me my heart.
Only it was too late.
One mistake can take it all away.
I’m about to lose my heart.
The thing that keeps me breathing.
The thing that keeps me from being reckless.
Lauren Bianci

I was always the good girl, the prodigal child, the girl who said and did all the right things.
Things like this didn’t happen to me.
Until him.
Until he smiled.
Until he tempted me to find out what made me happy.
Too bad it’s him.
We’ll never work, but, I can pretend can’t I?
Just for a little while.
Just until it’s over.

REVIEW:         5 OUT OF 5 STARS
With Reckless Temptations, Janine Infante Bosco delivers yet another fantastic book in the Tempted series. This story had me laughing, crying, and wanting more. This is the story of Lauren, the feisty and sexy girl next door, and Riggs, the smoking hot biker with the hilarious sense of humor and unfiltered mouth. When the two of them meet, there is an instant attraction, but they try their best to resist temptation and stay away from each other. They eventually give in, which leads to a big predicament that neither of them saw coming. The author delivers a great story that is full of angst, action, sexiness, and tons of laugh-out-loud humor.

The banter between Riggs and Lauren, or Tiger and Kitten, had me laughing out loud so many times, I lost count. There was never a dull moment between them, and that made for an incredibly entertaining story. Lauren could definitely hold her own with Riggs, giving as good as he gave her. The stuff that came out of Riggs' mouth was beyond hilarious, and there was nothing off limits to him.

"I hate your brother right now, and while we are getting to know each one another and all that warm fuzzy sh**, you should know I detest your mother too. The jury's still out on you."

Lauren was someone who was trying to figure herself out and what she wanted out of life. She met Riggs at a time where her life was uncertain at best, and decided to take a chance on being reckless with him, not knowing that it would lead to a serious detour in the form of an unplanned pregnancy. I loved her character and how feisty she was. She was a strong woman who dealt with life's blows as they came, and that was one of the things that Riggs loved about her the most.

"Throwing caution into the wind with Riggs was probably a bad idea...a really bad idea but oh, so tempting."

Riggs appeared on the surface like nothing but a laid-back, carefree guy, but as with all of this author's characters, he is far from one-dimensional. There were layers to Riggs that he hid underneath his easygoing demeanor. He was someone who sought out the MC life as a way to find brotherhood and a place of belonging, something that he never had in his past. It was a long journey for him to find himself and find true meaning in his life, but he eventually did.

"She gave me purpose, and my purpose was to love her. She brought me back to a place where I believed in dreams. She was my Kitten. My Kitten that was giving me a little Pea."

While there were some incredibly hilarious moments in this book, there were some sad and heartbreaking ones as well. This story was about dealing with the curveballs that life threw at Riggs and Lauren, and figuring out who they were and what they meant to each other. These were two individuals who were somewhat lost in life without really realizing it, and had a lot to figure out. In addition to dealing with an unplanned pregnancy and an uncertain relationship, Riggs and Lauren had to deal with a dangerous enemy who was out for the blood of the Satan's Nights MC. Riggs struggles immensely with his need for Lauren and his need to keep her and the baby safe. He made some decisions that made me want to slap him upside his head a couple times, but I understood that he was dealing with things the only way he knew how.

Janine delivered another great book in the Tempted series, one that was thoroughly entertaining and evenly balanced with elements of humor, suspense, incredibly hot sex, and emotion. Each book in this series is so unique in its own way, and so well-written and engaging. I am so excited to read Blackie and Lacey's story, which is sure to be an epic conclusion to this fantastic series.
