review The Risk

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 da. ARC provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review 1 The Chase I m not sure what the world has done to deserve Elle Kennedy and all the amazing stories she keeps giving us set around this hockey team but we are so damn blessed friends I hope she continues to write them forever And The Risk was so sexy so funny and so phenomenal Reading this was pure joy and my biggest complaint is that I wish we had an extra epilogue because I want and I need The Risk perfectly plays with the enemies to lovers trope but also adds the fake dating element and I was truly living my best life while reading this story Brenna Jensen Daughter of Briar s head hockey coach and a bit of a bad girl Even though she has had some awful things happen in her past she is strong confident and isn t going to let anyone boss her around Plus she is focusing on getting a jumpstart with a hockey news internship Jake Connelly Captain of the Harvard s hockey team and already all star He has signed with the Oilers for the next season but is trying to win it all his last year in college and cannot risk any distractions for him or his team I know you re Chad Jensen s daughter I know you would take any opportunity to mess with my players heads I know we re probably going to be facing off with Briar in the conference finals in a few weeks And Brenna and Jake s paths cross when Jake meets up with Brenna to tell her that she is being a distraction to one of his players Which Brenna obviously doesn t listen to even if she isn t really romantically interested in the other Harvard player But it is the perfect set up for Brenna and Jake s paths keep crossing as enemies even if they can t stop thinking what it would be like if they were lovers Plus we have seen the chemistry between these two characters brewing for so dang long and even when they are disagreeing on something their banter is perfection And they are both the perfect amount of hard and soft I m not even going to hint at it I m just going to say this this book has the best sixty nine sex scene I ve ever read Like there were so many elements that made it so sexy but it was amazing In this story we really see a lot of people in the sports industry be very nasty and hold some very misogynistic views Sadly Brenna experiences this first hand when trying to enter the field she eventually wants to work in But even sadly this is something that so many women deal with in our world too I m sure most of who have been to a sports bar you have heard people say some gross stuff about women interviewers for any pro sport But I really loved and appreciated Brenna and a few other women trying to break those toxic cyclesI also loved how this book constantly discusses how bad things that have happened to you in your past are not your fault even if you can t help but feel an immense amount of guilt over them People make bad choices all the time and just because you love someone and were a part of their life when they were making bad choices does not mean that those bad choices are your fault whatsoever This is constantly brought up throughout the book and I think survivor s guilt is something that we should talk about in society and I really appreciate how it was handled in this book I ll be honest with you I thought this installment was going to be my favorite out of everything that Elle Kennedy has written and I truly kept thinking that until around the 85% mark I just didn t love the ending of this one and I felt like the coach being a jerk was just a uick and kind of dumb bump in the road to give us one like little unnecessary angst plot Which I would have been able to overlook if we would have seen a really romantic or sexy scene after But it just got wrapped up and the Epilogue was about personal success than relationship success so it left me wanting so much I don t know I feel bad saying this but because the book was so freaking amazing and unputdownable for 85% that last 15% just felt like such a letdown and left me a bit sad upon closing the book But I still loved this story as a whole Overall Brenna is without uestion my favorite protagonist from the entire Off Campus world And I honestly might even go as far as to say that Jake is my favorite love interest of them all too They are both the characters that I would want to date the most but they are truly so damn perfect for one another I won t lie though I am dying to get Hunter s book so I am ready to pray every night that The Play will end up being his book Also side note I do not want Hazel to come back into the story or be a love interest So I m extra crossing my fingers and limbs for that not to happen But yeah this was a wonderful installment I read it in twenty four hours because I couldn t put it down The sex was mind blowing The set up was glorious enemies to lovers perfection And I truly can t wait to see what comes next Blog Instagram Twitter Tumblr Youtube Twitch The uote above was taken from an ARC

The Risk

Ughter of Briar’s head hockey coach I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival teamAnd 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 reuire his help to secure a much coveted internship and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for meI need Connelly to be my fake boyfriendFor every f. I am bummed to only be giving this book 3 stars While I was reading the first book in Elle Kennedy s spinoff series I was just dying to read Brenna and Jake s book So I eagerly awaited the release of The Risk While I enjoyed the book overall it wasn t exactly the hit that I was hoping forIt s hard for me to describe why this one didn t work as well as I thought it would for me because there wasn t anything inherently wrong with the book In fact Kennedy s writing remains top notch and she writes characters who are engaging enough that I was able to finish the book I hyped this book up a lot for myself and I kept craving intensity from these characters I liked both Brenna and Jake individually Brenna especially was a great girl with a good head on her shoulders Her storyline was interesting enough especially with her trying to get an internship at a company with a sexist prick of a boss She was very passionate about hockey and was willing to suffer through almost anything to achieve her dreams Brenna s storyline with her father was also one I really liked I almost shed a tear or two when it came to them Jake was a bit harder to warm up to because I couldn t uite get a strong feel for his character I don t think I enjoyed him as much as I thought I would but he was decent enough The guy was eually passionate about his game of hockey and he was a good teammateFrom the vibes that these two gave in The Chase I was sure that this book would have some strong and epic hate to loveforbidden love vibes Then the actual summary of the book promised fake dating Those are all tropes that I am especially obsessed with However I didn t think The Risk did a good job with these tropes In fact all those vibes actually went away fairly uickly This brings me to why this book wasn t exactly what I expected I wanted so much from this romance I felt like it was very muted if that makes any sense Brenna and Jake had so much potential but their relationship didn t live up to it for me I wanted intensity chemistry sexiness I just wanted I also found myself being very frustrated with some of the side characters stories especially Hollis and Rupi s one It was so over the top and irritating I just felt out of place in this bookAnyways I m sad that The Risk didn t live up to my expectations but I m certainly in the minority I hope those of you who read it end up loving it
