    “The idea for this series breathes fresh air into an otherwise saturated contemporary romance market where everything seems to blend together and you can get authors and series mixed up.” ~Under the Covers

    I love, love, love this author. Then I saw the cover and HAD to have it. Of course, you may know this about me already. Other than judging a book by the cover I usually don’t read blurbs of books from authors that are auto-buy for me. This was the case with HIGH RISK.

    Problem number one, I thought this was romantic suspense. Once I quickly realized it wasn’t I was very intrigued with the idea of the series being centered on the rescue teams in the mountains. The idea for this series breathes fresh air into an otherwise saturated contemporary romance market where everything seems to blend together and you can get authors and series mixed up.

    That being said, I think this book suffered a bit of first book syndrome for me. There was a lot of attention put to the actual physical activity (in long detail sometimes) and a bit less on the development of the characters.

    So in quick recap, Rebecca lost her fiance, but she can’t remember much from that accident. She takes on a job as part of the Lifeline where she tries to get her life back in order and get back up to speed working. She also runs into her old HOT flame Marcus. Marcus has had his own ups and downs and is also dealing with his issues. But they soon realize what they had back then can be just as good and even better now.

    Becki and Marcus were really hot together. For a contemporary romance I’d say this was scorching! But also as they reignite their passion, their relationship deepens and they help each other get through their mental blocks. I think I would’ve liked to see more of that. To me, they were such complex and interesting characters and I would’ve enjoyed to get to know them a little bit better.

    Nevertheless, I think this is a series to watch for! I know Vivian Arend will probably have another hit in store for us with the next one because I’m already anxious to read about them from the little bit we got to see in this book.
