Life has not been easy for Penelope Summers. Specifically, the last month, when her high-profile boyfriend dumped her, her indecent exposure record surfaced, and her favorite thing in the world, tequila, failed her.

Good thing for Penelope, she has her best friend to pick her up, and take her on the vacation of a lifetime. A seven-day cruise that will change the direction of her downward spiral. But will that spiral shift in the direction Penelope needs? Or will it throw her into a bigger whirlwind of trouble?

With Reckless Abandon as her motto, tequila as her wingman, and a hot one-night stand as her much needed reward, will the tables finally turn for Penelope, or will life as she knows it continue to fail her?

Sometimes you just have to ride the wave of crazy to find out.


I have to admit, Penelope and I had a rocky start. She was a little brash and almost immediately hit me with one of my real life pet-peeves – being late to work. I only tell you this part because while it bugged the SHIT out of me, it probably isn’t as big a deal to a lot of people. But holy shit did it get my panties in a bunch.

I love JD Hollyfield books generally, so I took a breath and plowed forward. I wasn’t disappointed. Penelope and I may not be cut from the same cloth, but we could definitely be buds. She’s a true individual, for sure.

I really loved Sam. He was solid, romantic, and sexy … everything I look for in a BBF 🙂 He knew what he wanted and did what he needed to do to get it.

It took me a little while to get into the groove of the book; the h is sort of taking directly to the reader and I’m not used to that style. But once I got to the meat and taters of LAWKI I had a lot of fun with it.

Overall, I enjoyed the story, and look forward to the next book from Ms. Hollyfield.
