Worth the Risk (The McKinney Brothers, Book 2)
This week’s Friday Fun Read is Worth the Risk by Claudia Connor, and this one is definitely worth the read. The novel will be released on February 3, 2015, and the Kindle edition is currently going for $2.99 in Amazon.
After reading Ms. Connor’s Worth the Fall, I could hardly wait for the next book in this series. I wasn’t disappointed. This story has heart warmth to spare. In Worth the Risk, Ms. Connor spins a romance of two scarred people who slowly find healing in each other. I liked that Hannah and Stephen first meet in a grocery store, a nice change from the bar introduction that you find in many other stories in this genre.
Although this is the second book in the McKinney Brothers series, it can be read as a standalone novel. However, if you’ve not already read it, I would encourage you grab a copy of Worth the Fall since it’s a really good story.
Hannah Walker is a physical therapist using horseback riding as a therapy tool for handicapped children, having developed a love for horses while healing from her own injuries some years earlier. Stephen McKinney is a high powered businessman who lost interest in love five years earlier due to a tragedy. They each carry some emotionally crippling secrets, afraid to open up to anyone other than their families. Each must take a huge risk if they want to find their way into the other’s heart.
Cautions: Kidnapping and violence recounted, some bad language
Cushions: Large caring families, a budding steamy romance, a little bit of faith thrown in, well-developed characters, well-paced.
Another winner for Claudia Connor. Can’t wait for the next one!
I received my advanced reading copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
