    Sweet Story

    Worth the Risk is a sweet story about Lexi and her sister, Amber. The girls were young their parents died and they were sent to live with their Aunt Callie. When Aunt Callie died, Lexi became Amber's legal guardian. Together, they continued running City Seeds, a backyard veggy garden that provides fresh produce to local restaurants. Lexi stops by to volunteer in Amber's cooking class on the same day a guest chef, Brad, comes to talk to the students and prepare a dish. The chemistry between Lexi and Brad is electric.

    Now, this is not your typical trashy Harlequin romance. It is a sweet story of discovery.

    Not bad for free!

    It was a nice short story, but there was alot of wasted words and drama that was unneccesary. I would read it again though, if I had nothing else!

    Sweet

    A sweet story although a bit predictable. No vulgar language or questionable scenes. I just wish Lexi had ben a little more like her sister and not so down on herself.

    BLAND!

    This storyline has so much unused potential. As is, the tale is rather flat and bland. Researching details such as Amber's diabetes would have improved it. Type 1 diabetes is NOT weight-related and thus individuals with Type 1 do not need to watch their diet any more than the rest of the population. Pathetic.

    Cooking, Big sister and healthy eating with a twist.

    Loved the story, great potential, has a great story line which can take off into several directions. Please continue story because I want to see how everybody does, especially with two competeing restaurants with owners who want the same woman and the sister who works for the beau's competition. What more can happen?

    good pace

    This is a good read. It's not romance in the sense that Harlequin normally is. It is safe for teenagers. A woman owns a vegetable business and her younger sister enters a cooking competition. The woman starts falling for the Chief doing the competition. It's a good quick read.

    Ugh

    For a short short story, this offering is incredibly boring and tedious. It should not be in the romance section because it doesnt focus on the romance. It is 77 pages, the first 12 which are filler.

    I have not read this author before, and based on this one, will not be reading any more. If this had not been free, it would not have been worth the risk.
