A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy. THE RISK takes you back to the world of hot hockey players, feisty heroines, bro banter, and steamy scenes…
Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.
And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.
I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.
For every fake date…he wants a real one.
Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.
That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.
*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
This is Brenna and Jakes story if you have read the first Brier U story (The Chase) then you may remember Brenna as she made her first appearance here and OMG guys this book is flipping amazing! Elle really has outdone herself.
Brenna is everything that I love in a female lead, fierce, independent and sassy asf! and I love Jake, he is cocky but sweet in equal measure. The banter between these two characters is so on point it made for some really fantastic reading.
The story was engaging and it sucked me in so much it was hard to put it down. I read this in just over a day because I just couldn’t get enough.
So yes, if you enjoyed the chase then this is a must read!
My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
