One Reckless Summer is a good book for summer reading, either as an afternoon sitting under a tree or right on the beach, but anticipate bringing lots of sun-screen – you won’t be able to put it down. Toni Blake’s new series, Welcome to Destiny will keep you turning the pages and unwilling to put this book aside, not even for a swim to cool off.

Jenny Tolliver has been the perfect daughter and a very good girl all her life. Her marriage is over and now it’s time to recuperate and start taking control of her own existence. Her cheating ex has taught her a thing or two about what she doesn’t want in a man for herself. For the summer she is going home to Destiny, Ohio. The lakeside cottage where she grew up is a good starting place to rebuild her life.

Mike Brody is one of the bad boys of Destiny and from the wrong side of the lake. He has been in trouble more times that he would want to count or even admit to. He left town many years ago, but the land that his father and brothers lived on still belongs to the Brody family.

One evening Jenny decides to go across the lake to get a better view of the stars. Unknown to her, she has company and when she is told to leave and never ever step foot on the “Brody” land again, she happens to leave her prized telescope in her haste, after she promises Mike to tell no one she has seen him. Mike does return her telescope but cannot explain his reason for hiding out.

These two are caught up in passionate yearning for each other and their desire is unstoppable. They’re out of control and Mike is really just what Jenny needs to learn how sexy and desirable she really is. The one thing is they do not want to admit is that it might be just more than a summer fling and not just SEX.

You will find yourself asking many questions as you read, but Toni Blake will answer every one of them before this books ends. Will Mike and Jenny find true happiness or will Mike’s secret hurt their relationship? Will Jenny's dad try to break this up? Will One Reckless Summer turn into a lifetime of love?
