‘Risk’ is another great story by Deborah Bladon. I read all her books more than once (some of them more than twice 🙂 ) and enjoyed them all. I really like her style. I love how she combined all her stories together. It was nice to see characters from her other books were connected to the new one either by a friend, family or etc. This is the first book I read from her that didn’t have any of the other book characters showed up. Still there are glimpses of the company names like Axel NY 🙂 If you read any of her books you will understand, if you still didn’t read any of them, I recommend you to start right away. She has a lot of books and if you want to avoid spoilers within the books/series check her website for the reading order (You can click here for the reading order). She also has a character map that shows how each character is related to one another.
‘Risk’ is a standalone and it is one of my favorite books from Deborah Bladon. Ellie Madden is a beautiful, smart and strong woman, who was hurt by the men in her life before. Nolan Black is a sexy, smart, bold and determined businessman, who is the CEO of Matiz Cosmetics. Everything starts when Ellie falls into Nolan’s lap in Las Vegas. The chemistry between them is undeniable and instant. When Ellie thinks that she won’t see Nolan Black ever again, fate has other plans for her. After some events Crew, who is Nolan’s best friend and COO of Matiz Cosmetics, offers Ellie a job as a head of security. And once she accepts the job offer and moves back to New York, it is impossible for Nolan and Ellie to resist the attraction between them. They both have trust issues and a lot of secrets they keep to themselves. Once the secrets are out of the box, will their relationship survive? That is for you to find out 🙂
Deborah Bladon states that ‘Risk’ is a story about fate, choice, circumstance, sacrifice and ultimately love and I totally agree with this statement. It is a sweet, sad, and exciting story that will keep you guessing till the end. It is a fast read and I finished it in one sitting. I fell in love with the characters and when I was done, I wished there was more to read 😦 I cannot wait to read Deborah Bladon’s next book. I also hope that there will be a book for Adley and Crew.
