From the NYT Bestselling Author of Breathless With Her comes a fake relationship romance that’s all too real.

Professing her love to her best friend while wearing only her favorite panty set and coat probably wasn’t the best decision Amelia Carr has ever made. In fact, it’s perhaps the worst. But when her family becomes their overprotective selves while encroaching on her life, she makes a rash decision: her brother’s best friend will just have to be her beard. Too bad, he has no idea what he’s in for.

Tucker Reinhard loves women, and they tend to love him even more. Despite the love, he never would have expected Amelia to come up with the plan she poses to him. He’ll go along with it, but only because he doesn’t want to see her hurt—even if that means fighting his best friend.

In the midst of her scheme, Amelia realizes she doesn’t know Tucker as well as she thought. And neither of them are prepared for what happens when they let the façade go and see what truly lies beneath.

Ms. Ryan pulls a sneaky surprise with the emotional and heart touching Reckless With You Amelia is a woman who’s got it together yet a hot mess all in one. A hardworking, independent and caring woman. A woman who thinks she make bad decisions, but I think she is just living and learning. A woman who loves her best friend. A woman who found the courage to tell just what she was feeling and found rejection. A woman who feels and found something right under her nose. Amelia was an amazing character. Her confidence and self doubt found a way to balance each other out making her this wonderful person all around. Amelia feels, learns and lives. Tucker is the guy you know you can count on. Not having the best childhood but much better than it could’ve been he knows what it’s like to not have a family and those he calls her family are those of his choosing. Tucker has this deep sense of caring that goes beyond a job or a friend. While being a very tough man he has this emotional side that we don’t see in a lot of male characters. For someone not having a family his sense of family is truly amazing. Deeply decided, passionate and compassionate. I truly thought we were going to get a best friends to lovers story with Reckless With You but Ms. Ryan tips the scale and gives readers a brother’s best friend story. Amelia and Tucker have an emotional story. I’ll be honest I cried quite a few times. There are some ups and downs, yet their chemistry and passion came naturally. Ms. Ryan hits the heartstrings one again.

This book was a complete surprise for me as Amelia does not end up with who I was originally thinking was going to be her love. It was a great surprise and a love story. Amelia and Tucker are great together and I look forward to the final book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed this book after receiving an ARC.

What happens when you tell your best friend you love him and he tells you he's found "the one" and it's not you? Well you use your brothers best friend as your beard so your family won't hover. However you should tell said beard first before family! This is the start of a funny, happy, crazy love between Amelia and Tucker. Could not put the book down!

Book 2 in Less Than series, Reckless with You by Carrie Ann Ryan. Amelia is the younger sibling in the Carr family and even though her childhood was tragic she still had her amazing brothers and sisters but also her best friend from high school Toby. One night Amelia gives herself a pep talk and turns up to Toby’s house in lingerie and long coat. After Toby tells her he doesn’t love her that way and that he’s in a serious relationship with another women. Afterwards a lot happens but the siblings get involved and think dating is the answer but Amelia just wants to process. She asks Tucker to be her beard. I absolutely loved this book and especially the development of both Amelia and Tucker’s growth in this story. Absolutely loving this genre by Carrie Ann Ryan I thought I’d miss shapeshifter or witches but I have not been disappointed

When Amelia confesses her love for her best friend, things go horribly wrong. Brokenhearted, she finds comfort with her brothers’ best friend, Tucker. Being the good guy he is, he agrees to become her fake boyfriend. As they navigate their “fake relationship” an unexpected traumatic event causes Tucker to push away the only family he’s ever known. Tucker and Amelia compliment each other perfectly. Both have their issues with love which makes this friends to lovers story that much more enjoyable.

I love when 2 people come up with a scheme and end up falling for each other. It was an incredible story and I loved every minute of it. I can't wait for more from this series!!!

Okay, well that wasn’t at all what I expected, and it was all the better because of it! But what it did deliver, as expected, was a sexy romance. And two very confused people who find their truth once they recognize what they have in the other. Did I mention it was sexy? Well it is, but it is also touching, emotionally, and, again, in a very unexpected way. They were tearing up, not crying, moments, and they had impacts on the characters, and I felt their confusion, and pain, and anger. I loved their stalworthiness, and the family they made, and kept, and that allowed them to flourish, and supported them, and they supported in turn. I loved them both, and while they were not what I expected, I loved them more because of that!

I absolutely loved Amelia and Tucker’s story. You have Amelia who believe she has found the one and unfortunately it doesn’t work out the way she planned. Tucker is her brothers best friend and when her family feels she isn’t happy and they want to help she enlists him to be her new boyfriend. He isn’t sure about the idea but can’t stand to see Amelia sad and wants to help her. Slowly the relationship becomes real, but other matters have a chance to split the new relationship apart. Great read and the characters have great chemistry. Loved it

I absolutely adored this story!! I loved Amelia! She has made some mistakes and is trying to figure out how to deal with them. I loved the trope for this story, falling for brother's best friend. It is done really well and the characters just made me fall in love with them. I loved how Tucker treated Amelia. Through all of the story, he never pitied her, he just wanted to make her feel better and be there for her. It really worked. Amelia was losing her best friend Tobey and was trying to make sense of things that kept coming at her. She made a "mistake" but then things kept showing through that changed things. I felt like I could really relate to Amelia with the way that she felt about the mistakes. I might not have professed my love for a best friend but I have absolutely felt like she has regarding mistakes that have been made. In this way the story really resonated and connected to the characters. I loved Amelia and Tucker's relationship and the way that it was built. This story was a fantastic read and I thoroughly enjoyed it and would love more of them. They are my favorite couple with this series and in the Carr family, though I love them all. This is the second book in the series and this is a spin off series as well but this book stands alone. You do not need to have read any of the previous books to be able to pick this one up and fully enjoy it. The previous book in this series does give you a closer look at Tobey and Amelia, but that isn't needed. It's all a bonus if you have read them as you know the characters better and get to see old favorites/loves. I can't wait for the next book. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Reckless With You did not go the way I thought it would, this is book 2 in the Less Than series and Carrie pulled a fast one! I thought that this was going to be a love story about two best friends but it was really about falling for your brothers best friend. Surprise! Amelia Carr is the baby sister in the Carr family, growing up with three protective older brothers there was never a shortage of love even though it didn't really come from their parents. Amelia owns her own landscape design business and she loves it. Amelia is kind of awkward and in her head a lot. She has had one best friend, Tobey, for as long as she can remember. Its been the two of them against the world or so it seemed. Things take a shocking turn for their friendship and threatens to tear them apart. The one that is there for Amelia the most is quite shocking, Tucker is her older brother Devin's best friend and understands what Amelia is going through and knows what she needs, so he helps her and not in the way he expected either. Tuckers parents died when he was young and he spent a great deal of time in and out of foster homes. Tucker grew up with asthma and had night terrors so he wasn't easy to place. Tucker is a Diagnostic Radiologist and loves his job. When he met Devin he knew he found his family with the Carr's. Tucker has some hang ups about relationships being a foster kid he has learned that developing feelings for someone could leave you devastated so he sticks to short affairs with woman never getting too attached. The philosophy has been going good until Amelia has a proposition for him that he can't turn down. Reckless With You is on the emotional side and will pull at your heart on more than one occasion.

Tucker and Amelia were so great together! I really enjoyed watching their relationship grow from friendship to true love. Readers will love the way that both points of view are shared and you see the push and pull of whether they should give in to their true feelings or remain friends. The love and respect that they have for each other, and her family, is truly beautiful. Amelia is so confused about what she thinks she wants that she makes a big mistake. Tucker is such a great guy that he will lie to his best friend to help Amelia out. This whole family is just wonderful. I am really looking forward to seeing what comes next.

Reckless With You is Book 2 of Carrie Ann Ryan's Less Than series. While it's not necessary to read them in order, I do feel a reader would benefit from the back story between Amelia and her best friend in order to feel the full experience as to why what happens between them totally blindsides everyone. This was an amazing story that was jam-packed with lots of twists, turns, confusion, anger, a few laughs and an intense amount of steam! Tucker and Amelia are my new favorite couple.

Wow! Amelia had to go through the wringer to get to Tucker. I was left with questions about how she could have been so wrong about her friendship with Tobey, but she definitely had to go through that heartbreak to be ready for Tucker. Tucker was amazing and I love how Amelia's family was about the two of them together. Now I'm dying for Zoey and Caleb's story. Definitely enjoy this series.

So wonderful to watch Amelia work through her "mistake" (b/c is it?) Loved seeing Tucker get his HEA! After learning about his childhood - he totally deserved his family! Wonderful twist showed the characters really stepping up - what a delight! This book was a bit spicier than some other books in the series but not as spicy as others. Wonderful read & can't wait for Caleb & Zoey's book.

Amelia thought she was in love with her best friend. All of her famil thought they had something going on. When she decided to make it clear she had feelings for him, it backfired big time. I did not like the guy after that. She was way too good for her. She had known Tucker for quite a while, but they were just friends, and then they weren't. The story was sooo good and their chemistry was off the charts. I loved how Tucker just wanted to care for her. Getting around her brothers was a little tricky, but the whole story had me intregued from the get go. Keep em coming

This is book 2 in the Less Than series and it can be read as a stand alone but I recommend reading book 1 before this one because then you can see the interaction between Amelia and her best friend and understand what her friend's and family talk about when they discuss his behavior. That being said-this is the story of Amelia and Tucker. Amelia is Devin's (book 1) little sister and Tucker is his best friend. Amelia made the biggest mistake of her life when she showed up at her best friend's to profess her love. Not realizing that he didn't see her that way at all. Now her friend's and family are being overprotective and trying to help her move on. So she decides she needs a beard on the spur of the moment, and out slips Tucker's name. Tucker loves his life now and the people he considers his family. And when Amelia asks him to help her, he doesn't want to see her hurt again so he steps up. Even knowing that it may cause problems with his best friend. But they don't expect that in spending time with each other that they will come to care about each other. But when something unexpected happens, can they overcome it or will they step away from each other? I really liked this one! Amelia goes through something that most women truly never want to happen. And you can only imagine how hurt she truly is. Tucker went through literal hell as a child and has managed to find his happiness as an adult but he holds pieces of himself apart in order to keep himself safe. And while you understand why, it makes your heart ache for the things he is missing out on. I loved them together, they made me laugh and their interactions are not only sweet but hot at times. The only thing I didn't like-I felt I was left hanging on why her best friend just suddenly changed. I didn't feel like there was any true closure I guess. I feel like I need to know why he did the things he did and how he could just cut someone out of his life like that. Or tell tales the way he apparently was. Other than that-I loved the book!

I absolutely love Amelia's story! Amelia is doing what she loves and has her best friend there along with her for everything, until one night when she tells him he more than just her best friend. She is devastated when he tells her he has a girlfriend, one he has kept from her. Her bothers know something is up with her, but when they become overbearing its Tucker who decides to do something about it. Tucker is the brother's best friend and a total player. Amelia decides that he should be her fake boyfriend so everyone will leave her alone. That sounds good in theory, until she really gets to know him and feelings start to cross their "friends" line. This is pulls at your heart, is funny, sweet, steamy...all the things you love about Carrie's books!
