USA Today Bestselling author Brooke O’Brien delivers a stand-alone romance about the NBA’s bad boy and the girl he never saw coming.

Jaxsen Wild has landed himself in hot water with the NBA.

After letting his temper get the best of him during a game, he’s slapped on the wrist with a warning – get your act together, or your career and the championship with the Miami Blaze is on the line.

He wasn’t looking for love, and he certainly never saw Emmy coming when she crashed into him at the airport. Jaxsen is used to women using him for his money and the media dragging his name through the mud.

The last thing he needs is another scandal with his name plastered in the headlines. Still, something about how she has no idea who he is, draws him in.

Learning her ex cheated on her has Emmy swear off men and relationships forever. All she wants is one night of passion to forget everything – no strings attached. Who better than Mr. Tall, Dark and Dreamy staying at her hotel after their canceled flight leaves them stranded in the city?

Except Jaxsen wants more than one night with Emmy, and he isn’t ready to let her go so easily.

When word gets out about their relationship and Jaxsen finds out the secret she’s been keeping, Emmy fears he’ll believe she’s using him like all the women before her.

Or worse, he’ll live up to his bad boy reputation and turn out to be as much of a player off the court as he is on it.

Reckless Rebound is a standalone Sports Romance book part of the Cocky Hero Club world and tells the story of Emmy and Jaxsen.

It’s been a while since I read a book by Brooke O’Brien and since I read a Sports Romance book so when I saw the sign up for an ARC of Reckless Rebound, I had to sign up. And I’m so glad that I did. Reckless Rebound was such an amazing, well-written and fast-paced read! I kept on reading and reading, and I finished this book in one sitting. Brooke O’Brien did such a good job with this book and I truly enjoyed reading Emmy and Jaxsen’s story!

Reckless Rebound is about Emmy, a flight attendant who loves fashion, and Jaxsen, a basketball player. Both characters were so interesting, and I liked reading in both perspectives. I think that Emmy and Jaxsen were so cute together, and I loved reading their happy ending. One thing that I also really liked was that we got to read about Sydney and Colson, characters from Personal Foul, the first book in the Men of Blaze series. It was so fun reading about them again!

Reckless Rebound was an amazing Sports Romance book and it made me want to read more Sports Romance books again. I’ve read so many good books in this genre and I don’t really know why I stopped. Brooke O’Brien is a talented author and I really enjoyed reading her other books, and I’m so excited to check out some new books of her that I haven’t read yet. If you’re looking for a good Sports Romane book that will put a smile on your face, then I highly recommend Reckless Rebound by Brooke O’Brien!
