Overview


Their love was ancient history...until their paths crossed again.

Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he's back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career--if he doesn't steal her heart first. Samantha's vowed to hate him, but it's more than anger heating the competition between them.

With sparks flying across the conference table and sizzling in every touch, Dean proposes a weekend liaison. Anything to have Sam again; anything to get her out of his system. But the unresolved feelings between them complicate both their personal and professional lives, and one wild weekend could turn into a disaster that would destroy the one job that means more to Samantha than anything. For a shot at love...is it worth the risk?

    Robin Bielman has written such a compelling, fun and sexy novell

    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!!

    Great weekend read! This was a great weekend read! Dean and Sam

    Great weekend read!

    This was a great weekend read! Dean and Samantha find themselves competing for the same contract for their companies. Five years has gone by since the two of them shared the best summer of their lives. The feelings they had for one another have come to the surface once again and only increase after spending the weekend together. I thought Robin did a wonderful job on this story. The characters had the right amount of chemistry and guarded emotions that you would expect and it was fun to see how they were going to handle this. She did a great job with the intimate scenes making them very romantic. I also wasn’t sure who was going to get the contract at the end and that was one of the reasons I kept reading! This was a very sweet book that reads very quickly with believable characters and a happy ever after.

    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.

    Cute and Quirky!

    Loved this short story... Excellent characters and very good story line... Quick read (only 100+ pages)... Held my interest and I enjoy Ms. Bielman's writing style... She writes with a flair and a sense of humor... Her characters could be my friends and while sexy her love scenes are always in good taste...

    I am new to the romance novels, but, I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Robin Bielman is a wonderful writer who has crafted intriguing characters and wrapped them up in a compelling story. I had a hard time putting her book down and am ready to read more of her works! I would heartily recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

    Review: "Worth The Risk" by Robin Bielman was a won



    Review:

    "Worth The Risk" by Robin Bielman was a wonderful romantic read. The author did a wonderful job presenting these two people. Wow, is all I can say for a well written romance. Certainly, Ms. Bielman knows how to bring out the plot, good dialogue, sex, and the adding other good characters.. to only present a good contemporary romance and we get a wonderful sweet read. This is definitely a page turner that was well written dialogue. These two people... Samantha and Dean had been apart for five years, but after a rush for a historic preservation job they are now back together again. Will the sexual tension and chemistry be the same as it had been before? What will come of this? ... Will they get back together? Now, this is where I say you must pick up "Worth The Risk" to find out will the guy get the girl?

    All I can say is get ready for 'steamy scenes and the dramatic tension that comes from these two hard working, passionate people who are competing for the same job.' Just who would get this job...again you will have to get this read to find out!

    If you are a romance lover you will simply enjoy this quick short read. I like this novel because it was fun and sexy and I would recommend "Worth The Risk" to you as a good adorable read.

    My Review:
    I really enjoyed this book. Sam and Dean were an item for a summer filled with adventure and love five years ago. Both were devastated when it ended and never expected to see each other again. Since then, things have changed a lot for both of them. Sam left her law practice. Dean started his own company. Now they are both competing for a contract to work on revitalizing Route 66 and they both want this contract really badly. For Sam, it's a chance at financial security with a full-time job. For Dean, it's a chance to reconnect with his father.

    What neither one of them ever expected was to run into each other in the lobby. Now they have to wait the entire weekend to find out who got the contract, which gives them a chance for some time together. For both of them, this weekend is a time to reconnect for old times' sake, but soon they find that leaving their relationship at only a weekend may be harder than they thought.

    I enjoyed this book a lot. Sam and Dean are both passionate about revitalizing and environmental issues. For Sam, that is entirely from Dean's influence for that incredible summer, which I thought was an interesting twist. Everything she does now is because of the influence he had that one summer. He's left an indelible mark on her heart and her entire life.

    I liked the part that Dean's family played in the story and the contrast between them and Sam's family.

    These are both fun characters who enjoy adventure and each other. It makes the book really fun to read and highly entertaining.

    When Samantha Bennett and Dean Malloy both show up at the same job interview, they discover that they're competing for the same coveted partnership. Before the jobs interview and, later, while they spend the weekend waiting to find out which one of them earns the position, they also rekindle a hot romance that ended in heartache several years before. But when the winner of the job position is announced, will it end their growing love?

    I loved this novella! It was fun and funny and sexy. I loved the chemistry between Sam and Dean. The question of who would win the job - and what it would do to their newly rekindled relationship - made the book nearly impossible to put down. Robin Bielman is definitely an author to watch!

    Great romance, could not put it down,

    Long lost lovers meet accidently. Will their weekend they are waiting to here who got the job, turn into a lifetime? It was steamy and romantic. I had to continue reading it to see not only what happened on the workfront but where it took them personnally. Loved it and would recommend it.
