From New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new standalone romance about a woman torn between two men from her past, searching for missing memories that could hold the key to her future.

I’m in love with a man who tried to kill me. At least that’s what they tell me . . .

Six weeks ago, paramedics found me unconscious in my own home. Beaten. Bruised. Hardly breathing. When I woke up, I couldn’t remember the last three years or anything about my life in Jackson Harbor. They tell me my fiancé, Colton McKinley, is on the run for what he did to me. They tell me I’m safer if I stay away. 

I don’t care if my memories ever come back. I want nothing to do with those missing years . . . until a sexy stranger with angry eyes shows up on my doorstep and demands I stop ignoring him. 

Levi Jackson is my fiancé’s best friend, but seeing him sparks something inside me. As the truth unravels in my mind, I know they’re wrong about Colton. My own secrets are far more dangerous than the man I was engaged to.

I return to Jackson Harbor to search for answers and find myself running from a faceless boogeyman and seeking refuge in Levi’s arms. And in his bed. 

I can’t deny my feelings for Levi. But as the pile of lies between us grows, I realize that sometimes the truth can’t set us free. Sometimes, it’s the very thing that can destroy us.

Dirty, Reckless Love is book 3 in The Boys of Jackson Harbor series. All books in this series can be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy them as a series!

    Not my favorite. To me, Levi’s obsession with Ellie is ridiculous and the expectation that a Jackson brother always gets what he wants. I wish the author had him move on when he realizes that Ellie really does love Colton. This book does have a good mystery though.

  • Good, but not great

    Another enjoyable story, but I don’t feel like I connected with this one as much as I did the first 2. Between the bouncing back and forth between past and present, and never really feeling like Ellie truly loved either man, it was a little hard to get into. But with all the characters flowing through each book, I can’t wait to read the next
  • SO GOOD!

    A few constructive criticisms: 1. The format of before/After 2. Ellie’s neediness and weakness, even though that was the moral of the story.....she had to find herself, but she was pathetic I loved Levi, even though it’s unrealistic to keep pining for someone like Ellie 3. Wash, repeat. Every book in this series is the same story, different characters.
