Overview

How to make a strong man fall hard? Refuse him.

Hunter Worth lives life to the absolute fullest. As vice president and head of brand marketing for Worth Luxury Goods, he's brought his family's business firmly into the twenty-first century. Ruthless yet charming, he's now set his sights on the sexiest member of the marketing team. First thing on his agenda? Seduction.

Gracie Hayes needs her job at Worth-and she's not about to let the gorgeous owner and her direct boss distract her-again. Orphaned, and with a rough childhood behind her, she's worked too hard to compromise everything for a fling, no matter how tempting. Independent, strong and resourceful, she will fight off Hunter. She has to.

Flirting, stolen kisses, a few nights of scorching-hot sex...Hunter has all that in mind and more with the delicious Gracie. He never figured he'd fall in love or that she'd deny him. How will Hunter convince Gracie he's the one for her?

Warning: Contains yet another one of those sexy, bossy Worth brothers, though this one is too full of charm for his own good. Watch as he falls hard-and watch as she tries her hardest to dodge his every attempt at seduction.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Erickson (Melt with You) sets the perfect stage for love in the world’s most romantic cities, making Alex and Tessa’s quick romance plausible, plus steamy lovemaking and a looming subplot help carry the story along to a surprising yet gratifying conclusion.”
—Library Journal on Worth the Scandal

Worth the Scandal is a compelling, dramatic story of love, betrayal, secrets, lies, and a seemingly doomed affair where societal status could be their downfall. The romantic development is tension filled and keeps pace with the story beautifully.”
—Long and Short Reviews

“Ms. Erickson sets the mood for this couple and they drew me in until the very end… I look forward to more stories in the Worth series and see what’s in store for Hunter and Rhett.”
—Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews on Worth the Scandal

    This is the second book in Ms. Erickson's Worth It series and I

    This is the second book in Ms. Erickson's Worth It series and I have to say this one is as good as the first one! I loved Alex's story in the first book Worth the Scandal. This one focuses on Hunter, the middle Worth brother. I fell for him at the very beginning, I had already made up my mind if Gracie didn't come to her senses before the end of the book I would take him off her hands!
    Given the horrid childhood Gracie had I can't blame her for being so careful with her feelings, and I found myself really wanting to tell off her grandmother, that woman was driving me nuts!
    Ms. Erickson is a wonderful storyteller and I can't wait for Rhett's story coming in Worth the Challenge, he seems absolutely yummy!~ Ebook provided by author for review.

    Great book!

    It was a great read that doesn't disappoint. However there were a few slow parts and it definitely isn't as good as the first book, "worth the scandal". But I did like the way the author continued the story from were she left it at the end of the first book.

    Good Book! I am a huge Karen Erickson fan and I always look for

    Good Book!

    I am a huge Karen Erickson fan and I always look forward to reading her wonderful romance novels. This time I read Worth the Risk (Worth It), book two in the "Worth It" series. Although it is the second book in the series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone. These books are about the hardworking, yet wealthy lifestyle of the Worth brothers; Alex, Hunter and Rhett. This story is about Hunter, the gorgeous middle brother and successful businessman.

    Hunter runs the marketing division of Worth Industries. His staff includes Gracie Hayes, a sophisticated, knowledgeable and smart marketing manager. Gracie's instincts and natural abilities to read the market trends prove invaluable time after time. Defying the odds of her upbringing, Gracie is a huge success. She was abandoned by her Mom when she was five and is a product of the foster care system. For the majority of her lie, she has relied solely upon herself for everything and anything.

    Gracie has been an employee of Worth for about a year and loves her job. Hunter is her boss and she has been attracted to him from the moment they met. About a month ago, they shared a short, passionate make-out session in the back of a local pub. And from that day on, their lives have never been the same. Both think about each other constantly and relive their passionate encounter.

    Working along-side each other platonically, along with some occasional mind-blowing sex, is creating havoc. Both Gracie and Hunter have trouble expressing themselves and communicating their true feelings. Gracie believes she is not good enough for Hunter and pushes him away. Hunter has never experienced being in love and is having difficulty adjusting to needing, as well as wanting someone. Luckily, they are able to work through some relationship barriers and map out a future together.

    This is another well-written, spicy romance from Karen Erickson. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

    Hunter Worth the middle Worth brother and Marketing manager for

    Hunter Worth the middle Worth brother and Marketing manager for the company is used to getting what he wants and what he wants is Gracie Hayes. Gracie wants, needs her job and it doesn't matter how sexy her boss Hunter Worth is she can’t go there. Hunter lives up to his name and pursues Gracie with every skill he has. Will it take almost losing everything for Gracie to give in?

    Hunter can be charming. But I found him to be a bit too arrogant for me. Maybe Gracie will bring him down to earth.

    Good story

    This is the second book in the Worth It series. For the most part i really enjoyed it except for the ending. It felt like it ended very abruptly to me. Otherwise a good story. Gracie has a very hard time trusting people and that causes some issues with her relationship with Hunter.

    Worth the Read!

    Worth the Risk is the second book in the Worth It series. I love Hunter and Gracie together. You can feel the magnetism. But, as good as it may be between them, Gracie can't let her guard down. She was abandoned as a child. Went from foster home to foster home. She's had to take care and look out for herself because no one else did. She's never really been loved or cared for. She built this wall around her heart to protect it. She would like to have a loving relationship, but I don't think she feels she's worth it. She continuously pushes Hunter away. I give him so much credit for not giving up.

    While Hunter wasn't ready to make promises, he was ready to build a relationship. Something he has had no interest in. Hunter Worth was a ladies man. He could get just about any woman he wanted. He wasn't looking for anything serious, but something about Gracie got to him.

    I really liked this story. Sometimes I just wanted to reach in and give Gracie a push. The obvious was right in front of her face, but she just couldn't see it. Same with Hunter. I don't think he realized what he felt for her or how strong his emotions were. It will take a life altering experience to get both Hunter and Gracie where they need to be. Once they get there though, it's absolutely beautiful. You can't help but smile and feel their joy.

    Really Enjoyed

    As posted on The Smutty Kitty:

    4 out of 5 Licks

    This is the second book in the Worth It series. We get to know the middle Worth child, Hunter, a little better in this one. Hunter and Gracie hit it off hot and steamy right off the bat in this book but then they both try hard to stay away from each other. But a work trip unites them and allows up to see a softer side to Rhett, the youngest Worth brother-I can't wait for his book!! I seem to really enjoy books where the hero and heroine fight the obvious insane attraction they have with each other. The harder they fight the more I love. lol I especially seem to like it when the woman is the one fighting the attraction. I won't tell you the events that lead up to it but of course they finally give in and wind up happy. I love my time with books. It's such a wonderful escape from the craziness of everyday life. Thank you Karen for writing another enjoyable book and for the future ones I know you are working on now! ;) So um Karen when do I get Rhett's book again? lol

    Fine Print: This book was offered to me in exchange for my honest opinion.
