Gracie is independent and never wants to get close to anyone, ever. Gracie's decisions to push Hunter away stem from her past. A few times I wanted to shake some sense into her. However, in her defense, I knew what was going on in Hunter's mind and how he felt about her. She didn't have that comfort so her hesitant behavior is justified. She is a vibrant character who is strong.
Hunter doesn't understand how his brother, Alex, can settle down with one woman for the rest of his life, which makes it even better as he falls hard for Gracie. He's the take charge type who has everything in control, but he can control nothing with Gracie.
The chemistry between these two heats up the pages. Hunter is downright yummy. They kept me enthralled. I couldn't put the book down.
I love that more of Rhett, the younger brother, is shown. He's grown in maturity from book one, Worth the Scandal. I can't wait for his book, Worth the Challenge. The glimpse of Rhett is just enough to make you eager for his book.
I recommend this book to any reader look for a sexy, contemporary romance. Definitely worth reading.
To celebrate the release tomorrow I'm giving away one eBook of Worth the Risk from either Kindle or Nook (winner's choice). Enter below for your chance to win. Winner will be announced Wednesday.
Note: I requested an ARC of this book from the author.
