Reckless Girl by Emma Tallon - Blog Tour Review

Fans of Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers and Jessie Keane will be hooked by Reckless Girl.

She’s back and this time she has a score to settle.

Anna Davis and Freddie Tyler are finally getting their lives back on track when an unexpected face turns up on Freddie’s doorstep. Someone from the past. And she delivers a blow that will tear their lives apart.

Reeling from the news, Anna throws herself into her work. Her clubs are doing well and she’s opening a new business venture with best friend, Tanya. But she’s worried that her relationship with Freddie could be about to fall apart.

Freddie’s got big problems with the business. A new gang is in town, and they’re muscling in on Tyler turf and need to be dealt with. Plus, he’s still being closely watched by a Met detective determined to bring him down.

As Freddie plots to take out his rivals, tensions between him and Anna grow. Could this spell the end of their relationship? And will the rogue detective finally get the chance to arrest Freddie – burning the empire he’s built from scratch to the ground?

My Review

This series just gets better and better with each book and Reckless is no exception. It is always a pleasure to sit down and read one of Emma Tallon's books. She has a real gift for writing this type of book.

The story revolves around Anna, Freddie and their best friend Tanya. Following the events in the previous book, Anna is struggling to deal with her feelings. When a bombshell is dropped on her, she doesn't take it very well (understandably). Anna and Tanya are embarking on a new business venture, which is helping to keep Anna occupied. I love the relationship the trio have, they are so close, even though life throws difficulties at them, they have each others backs and look out for each other.

Tanya is fiercely loyal to her friends. Even though she once had a relationship of sorts with Freddie, she looks at them both as family. They have helped her through difficult times and she trusts them with her life. 
She knows she has to step up and help Anna through her current situation, whether that's with a shoulder to cry on or a few glasses of champagne!

Freddie is having problems, both in his personal and professional life. Freddie has a tough exterior, but scratch beneath the surface and he has a massive heart. He loves Anna completely and will do anything in his power to make her happy. He won't let anyone get away with hurting her. Can he hold it all together when people let him down?

Reckless Girl is a superb read, and a wonderful addition to this series. Emma Tallon has written brilliant characters, an excellent plot and a book that I couldn't stop reading. I am eagerly waiting to see what she has to offer next. 

Author Bio

Emma Tallon is a British, gritty crime writer, adventurer, Londoner and mother to a young son. Starting her career a few years ago as a ghostwriter, Emma crafted some of the most adventurous, edgy and heart-wrenching stories you can find on the shelves today.

In March 2017 Emma stepped out of the literary shadows and self-published her first book, Life Game. The book was an instant success, the results far exceeding anything she had expected. As news of Life Games popularity spread, she joined forces with W.F.Howes and the audiobook was launched in October 2017.

In December 2017, Emma signed a three book deal with publishers Bookouture. This included Life Game which was changed, re-edited and re-released as Runaway Girl.

Drawing inspiration for her books from a mixture of her own observations and an active imagination, the characters Emma paints are colourful and larger than life. Her story lines are an interesting recipe of deep emotion and violent grit, that keep her readers engrossed.

With more books in the works for this series already, Emma has many more stories planned out for the future.
