One Reckless Summer by Toni Blake

One Reckless Summer by Toni Blake (Destiny series book 1)

ISBN #0061429899

Publisher: Avon

The perfect daughter. The perfect prom queen. The perfect wife. Jenny Tolliver’s been the good girl all her life, and it’s gotten her nowhere. Now that her marriage has been busted up by her cheating ex, she’s decided it’s time to regroup and rediscover herself. This summer she’s headed back to her hometown of Destiny, Ohio, to the very lakeshore cottage where she grew up, to figure out what life holds in store for her next.
She never dreamed the answer would be Mick Brody, Destiny’s #1 hellraiser. He comes from the wrong side of the tracks (or in his case, the lake), and he’s landed in hot water more times than he can count. He’s exactly the kind of guy Jenny’s always kept her distance from … but soon the good girl and the bad boy are caught in a raw heat that’s out of control. Too bad Mick’s got a secret that threatens to tear them apart and ruin Jenny’s perfectly, passionately reckless summer …

My Review --

Good girl Jenny Tolliver has decided maybe it's time to be a little bad in One Reckless Summer.  After all, what did being good get her but a cheating ex-husband.  Returning to her home town for the summer to relax, she crosses the lake and runs right in to bad boy Mick Brody.  He wants her back on her side of the lake before she finds out his secret.  To distract her, he kisses her and before they know it, they're getting down and dirty.  At first, Jenny can't believe what she's done but as the summer wears on, she can't keep her hands off Mick and vice versa.  Even finding out what he's hiding doesn't keep her away from him.  But what will Jenny do when the end of summer rolls around?  Will she be able to let Mick go?  I totally loved this book!  What a great beginning to a new series?  Toni Blake has created a believable fictional town with a memorable cast of characters.  So looking forward to the next in the series.
