NEW RELEASE REVIEW by Kayla: The Risk by Elle Kennedy

A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy.

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.

Kayla’s Review

The risk was a really good read!

Elle Kennedy nailed it with her new hockey romance. The book had everything I wanted in a sports romance a storyline that is both unique and compelling, and one that not only grabs your attention but holds it as well. I wasn’t able to put this book down while reading between both Brenna and Jake’s POV’S.

Jake’s POV might very well might be my favorite, even though most of the story is written from Brennan’s, reading what Jake thought of Brenna’s words and actions was like I was watching foreplay between the characters. I love a good steamy sports romance as much as the next girl. If you’re a fan of sports romance this is a must read. Elle Kennedy certainly knows how to write a good steamy novel.
