I loved this contemporary romance.
It's been 10 years since Holly Carrington lived in Red River.  She left at the age of 18 to go to school and pursue a career in interior design, which she has become very successful at.  She has finally achieved her goal and worked her way up into the position of senior designer.  The only family that Holly has left is her sister, brother-in-law, and baby niece Ella, who she adores.  When she receives word that there has been a tragic car accident that has taken the life of her sister and brother-in-law, she is completely devastated.  Thankfully, baby Ella is fine, but now Holly finds herself as Ella's sole guardian, a task that she fears she can't handle or live up to.  Having already planned to take 2 months off to renovate her grandparents home in Red River for her sister, she and baby Ella pack up and head home.  Home has lots of memories, good and bad....memories that Holly doesn't know if she can handle.  She has called Quinn Manning to head up the renovation project for her and is really nervous about seeing him again.  She has had a crush on him since she was big enough to have a crush.  At 18, she confessed her feelings to Quinn, who was 25 at the time, and was crushed when he didn't reciprocate, telling her she was too young.  When she sees him again, all those feelings come back to the surface, the crush and the hurt caused by Quinn's rejection.  Quinn is also faced with his feelings, the past, and has his own wounds and guilt to deal with.  Will these two be able to overcome the obstacles set before them and find love once again, or will Holly's fears for the future and Quinn's guilt from the past be more than they can overcome?




I really loved A Risk Worth Taking.  Holly's character was great and I enjoyed getting to know her as she transitioned into her role as Ella's mom.  Her Coach bag, which was once a symbol of her success has now become a diaper bag, and her fancy clean car is now filled with baby stuff.  Holly is very strong and very stubborn, but she also has a lot of hurt that she has buried deep inside.  She totally adores Ella, and Ella is an absolute doll that will melt your heart, a fact that Quinn Manning finds out shortly after meeting her.  Quinn is a total hottie.  I mean the man just has it going on.  He steps in to help Holly in any way he can, but  soon realizes that the feelings he once had for her are still there, and the feelings that he has for Ella really throw him for a loop.  Quinn and Holly are both stubborn, and dealing with the renovation of the house proves to be both entertaining and challenging, with some really humorous situations that I totally enjoyed.  The chemistry between Quinn and Holly is undeniable, and I loved watching their relationship develop as they dealt with their desires, their hurts, and their fears, butting heads along the way.  I found A Risk Worth Taking to be a wonderful contemporary romance that is funny, sexy, fast paced, with some sad moments,and some really heartwarming ones.  If you are a contemporary romance fan, then A Risk Worth Taking is something you should definitely check out.

    This was a cute story about Holly Carrington. She left home at 18 to pursue college and then a career but she left behind the man she always wanted. When she had to step up and raise her niece, she went home to renovate the family home in order to sell it. Holly thought that Quinn never cared for her but he was seven years older and wanted her to pursue her dream. However now that she was back, he didn't want to let her go. Holly was afraid to love again because every time she did she lost that person. She was hurt when Quinn rejected her all those years ago and had waited 10 years to be with Quinn and now that she had, will she be able to walk away? It was nice to see the relationship develop between Quinn and Holly. He was very patient with Holly and he also fell in love with Ella. Holly was unsure of her ability to be Ella's mom and it was inspiring when she realized that she could do it.

    Review:

    "A Risk Worth Taking" was a contemporary romance of a story of a "woman becoming a mother and a man finding himself a family." This is a love story that started during their teenage years that for a while was put on the back burner but as life would have it a second chance will come for Holly and Quinn.

    Who knew after Quinn's rejection many years ago would bring them together again. The author did a wonderful job giving very lovable characters with a intriguing romance scenes that at time were very hot and less not forget the 'witty humor.' This is one of those novels that will remember long after the read.


    "A Risk Worth Taking" was a good story that did offer a beautiful lesson and I would recommend this novel as a good read.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    I had the privilege of reading this author’s first book so I am glad that I got to read the second one.




    Holly is finally getting the job that she has worked hard for, for six years. It just seems everything in her life is finally going the way she wants it. That is until she gets a phone call that will change her life forever. Now she has to become a different person so that she can take care of her niece Ella.




    Quinn is the guy that has been through some things in his past and he never wants to get married again. He is the oldest in his family and he has taken care of his two brothers. He has a great business. He just does the same old thing everyday until he gets that call from Holly that she’s coming back to town.




    This is a very warm story. It touches that place in your heart that you forget that you have. In this story you find out that it doesn’t matter what plans you make for your life, they can change in a blink of the eye. It is up to you how you how you plan for it to go after that.




    I loved how the characters finally tell each other about the feelings that they had in the past. It is up to them to figure out what they want for their future. I love how they take nothing for granted. This story makes you sit back and think and to make you feel thankful for the people that you have in your life. Even if we have lost love ones we need to be thankful for the time that we had with them.




    So I recommend that you get this book and find you a quiet place and sit back and relax. This story will really touch you.
