Reckless Lust by Chris Lange is a magnificent adventure. The third book in The Blast series, it continues to amaze me and pull me deeper into the story with every turn of the page. I can’t help myself. It’s how amazingly written this book and series is that I can’t help but become sucked into them as if I’m being pulled into one of Holly’s portals to another world. This book focused on Sage and her lover. A whole new twist comes with this book, too, that I did NOT see coming. Sage gets sent to a different dimension and meets a man who she has such a strong sexual connection with that she can’t be near him for long without both of them on their knees – controlled by their lust but unable to touch each other.
The plot continues to thicken and their pack grows in number with the journey that Sage has to take – not necessarily of her own volition. However, that makes the story that much more believable and fun to read. Similar to the previous book, it’s in the middle of the series but does an absolutely fantastic job of continuing the plot while giving the reader a unique insight to the characters introduced and focused on in this novel. We get to meet the last member of the group, Slate, and how he fits into the plan that Kat’s father has made for them. Even though everything within the book – Holly’s visions, Sage’s telekinesis, Bracken’s ability to uncloud Holly’s visions, and more – they are out of this world. Yet, Lange has found a way to wrap them into a story that feels so believable, that I wonder if it could happen in the near future!
This book is a fantastic addition to this series, and I absolutely love it. I NEED the next book. NEED it! I am so angry over how he ended this book. Not because it’s bad, but because it was a twist that there was no way I could see coming. Which is difficult to do – I can see most plot lines, but I didn’t see it here. Lange shocked me and made me need to read the next book. Not want or crave. I NEED to read it. I have never NEEDED to read a book before this one. As a fan of many series, this is the only one that has made me absolutely need to read the next book. I cannot wait to read it.
Thank you, Chris Lange for writing this amazing series, but I hate you for making me wait to read the next book! I’m looking forward to not only the next (IT BETTER NOT BE THE LAST ONE) book in the series, as well as everything else that Lange has written.
Bask in the fabulous world that is The Blast with me! Feel my frustration so I have people to discuss this with!
