The Risk

Xtreme Heroes, #1

I love how Hunt defended Julia from Phillip and his addiction to pop tarts is cute. They got off to a very rocky start that involved, food in the trash, a very well placed fit, Julia driving off in his awesome car and curses. They eventually came to an understanding and Julia helped him make the biggest comeback in history despite their bumps in the road.

I loved this book and was completely taken away. Hunt is funny, charming, and arrogant and needed a well-placed kick in the butt. Julia is assertive, cautious and needed some stirring up as well as fun in her life. The sexual tension and sex with them was off the charts and boy do they know how to have some steamy fun.

The sentences flowed well and there was a clear story line. Some twists and turns were thrown in to keep me on edge but it in no way took away from this great story. Julia and Hunt were perfect for each other and understood each other in ways others couldn’t and never would. Julia came in and whipped Hunt into shape even when he snarled at her. This was a great book and addition to a new series. I hope it continues and there will be more books to follow. I would love to read more about Finn.

Book Blurb for The Risk

Former Olympian turned physical therapist to the elite Julia Bailey knows all about pushing the limits. But when a sexual harassment suit costs her a dream job—not to mention her reputation—she takes on the biggest risk of her life. Rehabilitating the X Games’ most notorious bad boy might be just what she needs to secure the funds for her own treatment center. Problem is, the only kind of recovery her new client is interested in is under-the-covers freestyle—gear optional.

Daredevil snowboarder Noah Hunt is a rock star—on and off the slopes. A recent accident might have him down, but he’s far from out. He doesn’t care what the sexy therapist with the sweet curves says. He’s got sponsors to impress and trophies to collect, and taking things slow and steady just ain’t his style. A little dirty talk and a sizzling night later, Julia learns just how fast and hard he likes to play. Too bad for him, his heart goes all in, and one wrong move could cost him more than just his career.
