“… Jake Connelly will make you swoon HARD.”
~ Under the Covers

Is it really any surprise that when Elle Kennedy has a new book out and it hits my kindle, I drop everything and read it?  That’s exactly what happened when I got the ARC of THE RISK.  And not only because I jump at the chance to read an Elle Kennedy book because she’s one of my favorite authors.  But also because I was dying for Jake and Brenna’s story.  Elle Kennedy did this couple justice.

Let’s get the swooning out of the way first because I’m here to tell you that Jake Connelly will make you swoon HARD.  That boy is perfection!  I loved how into Brenna he was, how he wanted to push her but was also trying to be respectful of giving her space.  Be that for her personal walls or the fact that she’s the daughter of their biggest rival coach.  He’s just a ball of awesome and I fell for Jake just as much as Brenna did.

But Brenna was the understated star of the show for me.  I say understated but she has a big personality.  There really isn’t much understated about her until you peel back some of those outside layers and you get to the years of guilt and self doubt that she’s covered up.  I admired her tenacity to keep going, to prove she’s a better person even when she had all these ideas in her mind about what others thought of her.  She had to go through so much at a very young age and she never really got the help she needed to heal.  I appreciate how the author handled the subjects she tackled in this book and in Brenna’s past.  I was rooting for her all the way!

This book really has it all.  The perfect balance between hockey and explosive chemistry.  Strong yet lovable characters.  A great cast of supporting characters (that always leaves me wanting more).  THE RISK left me on such a high and begging for the next one.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
