Robin Bielman has written such a compelling, fun and sexy novella with WORTH THE RISK! I truly enjoyed every moment of this contemporary romance, from the earliest pages where Samantha Bennett and Dean Malloy cross paths again for the first time in five years...to the final chapter where we get to see the resolution of their love story.

The pages in between are packed with both steamy scenes and the dramatic tension that comes from two hardworking, passionate people who are competing for the same job. I really had no idea which of the two would earn the contract until it was revealed, so that mystery kept me turning pages until late into the night. Plus, the "hot sauce kissing scene" was fantastic! A highly recommended romantic read!!

This series introduced me to the whole heritage architecture theme - the fixing up of old historic buildings, landmarks, and in the case roads, to bring the back to life again. Samantha has a passion for the industry that seems to be unmatched. But the reason she found that passion may just cause her to lose out on the biggest job of her career (more about that later). Sam is a very fun woman with a lot of personality and I really liked her, but she was just a tad one dimensional - I didn't see a lot of development in her and I crave that in a story. 




Now Dean on the other hand was quite a character. While he was a bit too confident for my tastes, he was definitely that way for a reason. I don't think the man had ever lost in his life! Of course, Sam may just be the first thing he really wants and can't have. This leads to a very interesting weekend stand agreement - this seems to be a new trend in writing and I'm starting to like it. It's a great starting point that is more believable than a one-night stand love story. 




I also like that these two books have at least mentioned the state of some of our historic landmarks. I don't know if that was Robin Bielman's intent, but she mentions things just enough to make you think about it a little - but she steers far from banging you in the head with it. I enjoyed book two a little more, but I just bonded with those characters better. Worth the Risk is a very good place to start.

    Connected with the second chance Sam &Dean have. Always wish the good books were longer or had a sequal.

    This is a good book and a quick read. I enjoyed Sam and Dean having a past that drew them together again and made it worth fighting for.

    An excellent debut, this story of reunited lovers kept my interest and kept me turning the pages. While I appreciated the glimpses of the history of Sam and Dean's first encounters five years ago, I sometimes felt a little too much attention was paid to the details of the past, if that's possible. But Robin did give us our happy-ever-after and did so in style. I really did enjoy this book.

    This book was a quick hot read.  Sam and Dean had a great connection.  I always love the second chance at love premise.  Theirs was one of pure gold.  The way the met five years before was young and fun.  Their reunion was grown up and mature.  The way they never lost their true feelings was sweet.  I look forward to reading the next book in this series. Ms. Bielman never disappoints in her books.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    Samantha Bennett is a woman determined to make her father proud. The thing is that lot’s of things have happened since she set out to win this big account. Main thing and probably the biggest of her life is seeing the man that broke heart again. Dean Mallory was everything for her and the only guy to really understand her. I loved that even though they have been separated for years their love is stronger than ever. This is the first I have read from Robin Bielman and have to say it was really good. There is romance, sexual chemistry leaping off the first chapter and a man determined to make all the past regrets well a past. The storyline was smooth and easily kept my attention wanting to find out what will Sam do with a man like Dean Mallory getting to heart all over again. Great book.
