Overview

In this sexy, short contemporary Katie Flanagan is desperate to save her deceased grandfather's photography studio, but Josh Morgan holds both the mortgage and a mean grudge. Josh once proposed to Katie's older sister, offering to give the woman's unborn baby a father, but when her sister ran off with Josh's brother, it left a bad taste in his mouth.

Josh is working his way up the business ladder and he doesn't need more disruption in his personal life. He just wants a sane life and he's determined to wash his hands of the entire Flanagan fiasco. Katie has always been flighty and as unreliable as her sister. Still, when Katie crashes his dinner with the big boss, claiming to be his date, Josh reluctantly agrees to give her one last chance.

He'll hold off on foreclosing on the studio if she continues playing his girlfriend long enough for him to get the promotion he's worked hard for. Katie knows she can make this career work, even though she's never really put herself into anything. She's sure she wants this, but she's not prepared to find herself wanting Josh, too....

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Highly recommended

According to Josh's boss, playing the field is fine for men, but what they really need is a woman who can help build their career. Any contact with Katie threatens Josh's focus. But her persistence is irresistible. She won't let Josh take her grandfather's photography studio. When he'd been engaged to her older sister Erin three years ago, Katie found him irritating but not mean spirited. When Erin defaulted on Josh's loan for the studio, Katie believed she found her nitch. But first she has to convince Josh that her sassy exuberance will lead to success.

Even if Katie kisses like a fantasy, Josh intends to keep the perfidy of the Flanagans at the forefront of his mind. Josh recognizes that Katie can be a major distraction, but it takes a lot more to perceive her as an asset. While her stunning good looks benefit Josh's good in the male hierarchy of power, he doesn't want Katie's social missteps to mess up his promotion. He doesn't believe she can make a go of the studio, nor can she provide him what he needs in the way of window dressing. But when Katie cancels Josh's escort for a business evening, and shows in the woman's place, Flanagan spontaneity results in unexpected long-term success.

Josh vows that he will never again become involved with a member of the Flanagan family. Even though he claims Katie as a fianc‚e, they both knew the falsity of it. And they also knew that she represented the polar opposite of the stability Josh craves. Katie has never seen Josh without that conscious carefulness in his eyes. Josh doesn't trust, and he doesn't ever feel safe, no matter how he surrounds himself with people who rely on him and benefit from the good work that he does. Josh believes that if he plays it right, the business world promises a certain financial stability?it's worth a few missed ballgames or lonely nights.

Risky Business humorously presents the falsity of corporate life in the guise of success, revealing that love is worth a little instability. Carol Rose's perky yet complex characterizations create endearing characters that prove quite appealing. Indeed, I couldn't help being hooked by Katie's zany spontaneity from the moment Josh took a dunking in the water fountain. I can only hope Rose will decide to share Katie's elder sister's story with an equally spirited encounter! Highly recommended.
