Overview

Risking It: A Romantic Comedy by Angela Quarles

"...one of the best titles I've read this year!" -Diane with Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty

500-mile road trip! Mission? Get over the guy you kinda-sorta hooked up with. Problem? He's your new road-trip companion.

Bribed by her bestie to go on a stupid soul-searching road trip to get over The Turd, Jane is sooo not into spending four days visiting tacky Florida stops and, ugh, journaling it. A librarian hiding behind the stereotype, she'd rather veg and read, thank you very much.

What could make it worse? Oh yeah. A hunky, charming playboy, begging for a ride. You might wonder why that would be worse, because, c'mon--hot guy? Except this hot guy is The Turd, the player this whole trip is meant to help her forget.

RISKING IT is a steamy, standalone romantic comedy from RITA Winning and USA Today bestselling author Angela Quarles with a happy-ever-after and no cheating or cliffhangers, with some bonus stops at wacky Florida tourist traps. Warning: there's a scene where guys get all hot and sweaty playing the ancient Irish sport of hurling, just sayin'

This is an excellent romance story and this series just keeps getting better. I love the humor and the "player" being paired with a "bookworm". They both have issues making them more realistic characters. Their road trip help them to really get to know one another but their hearts are so well guarded that they struggle to open up completely for their fear of not being enough. He is really a good guy and he is willing to put in the extra effort which makes him a winner in my book. Such a great, endearing love story and I enjoyed their emotional ride to find true love...together.

This story was delightfully sexy, quirky, and so much fun! It’s the second book in the Stolen Moments series but it can totally be read as a standalone. In short, Aiden and Jane had a fun night together, but strange and great thing, they only netflix’ed and chill, literally, and to them it was enough to know there could be more between them. However and apparently because no one taught them how to communicate, and because you know, pride and prejudice before getting to know people, they parted ways and ended up not talking after that one night. I thought the way those two went from strangers to friends to lovers was managed in a super fun and brilliant way. They obviously liked each other physically but they knew that jumping into the “sex” wagon at the first chance was going to lead nowhere but heartache. Jane had serious self-doubt issues and Aiden had a history of relationships ending badly. Their friendship was handled in an incredibly gratifying way and at the perfect pace and their playfulness made them more relatable. I had some problems with the way Jane’s generalized bookworms solely based on her own lack of confidence however I was ruined for life with the way Aiden opened up to her and the way he behaved during the road trip and afterwards. I think he became one of my favorite BBF ever! Overall this was a great love story and I’m looking forward for more books by this author. ** I was gifted a copy of this book and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.**

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book This is my first time reading a book by Angela Quartes and OMG it was wonderful, I LOVED Aiden and Jane's story. What starts out with a night of wonderful chemistry and connection turns into a huge misunderstanding. Both Jane and Aiden are confused, Aiden cannot forget her, He cant sleep he cant hookup with another woman, He cannot get this girl out of his head for weeks now. And all they did was sleep together, Literately. Jane is an introvert, she works at a library and would rather spend time with books then people, she finally gives in and goes out with her BFF and goes home with a HUNK of a man. Aiden, hoping for a wild night of sex (something she does not do) all they do is watch movies together then fall asleep on the sofa. Why didnt this man want her. It really messes with her self esteem, although she does not have much left because of her ex. I have to say that the sex scenes in this book were some of the best I have read in a while Yes they were HOT HOT HOT but the emotions and banter between Aiden and Jane truly made it feel "real" This book was just wonderful and I would HIGHLY recommend it

4.5 Stars! I enjoyed this story SO MUCH! After reading the first book in this series, I wasn't so sure about taking a leap into this next one. I'm so happy that I didn't let my initial hesitation stop me from continuing on. This book immediately snagged my attention and kept me riveted for nearly the entire time. Quarles managed to endear me to both the H/h, which can be a difficult feat. I'm very picky when it comes to heroines and Jane was a joy to follow. She was a bit quirky and had some of the funniest scenes/lines. Overall, Risking it was a smart, funny, and sexy story with some light dramatic conflict. I could easily find myself reading this quick story again; it was that much fun. (This is my voluntary and honest review of an advanced copy of Risking It.)

Risking It by Angela Quarles is book Two in the "Stolen Moments" series. This is the story of Jane and Aiden. I have read the previous book but this is easily a standalone book if you choose to do so. Jane is the bookish nerd type while Aiden is the jock type who doesn't commit. When Jane set to head to Atlanta to clear her mind of Aiden fate interrupts it seems to have Aiden in need of a ride. So Jane has to accept him as a passenger where they start to learn more about the other person and have some funny times along the way. This was a quick read that was so enjoyable...loved seeing these two come together.

I enjoyed Risking it. Jane and Aiden’s story is an exciting road trip in feelings. Jane is an interesting character in that she is comfortable being a bookworm and in her own world. She doesn’t need a social setting to be happy. That she finds herself and opens up to new experiences is wonderful. Aiden is a macho man that is a love ‘um and leave ‘um kind of guy that is happy staying that way. When he finds that he can’t get Jane out of his system, it is a contrast he is having to come to terms with. Their story is original and interesting. Angela Quarles has once again brought a touching and exciting tale that explores feelings and a happy ever after story.

3.5 STARS! Risking It was a good read. I enjoyed the main and side characters; Claire was definitely a trip. Jane is trying to get over the "turd" better known as Aiden and as much as she wants to forget him, she can't deny the sexual attraction. Aiden is in need of something and Jane is the perfect person to help him. Spending together and miles of roads ahead of them, what can go wrong? There were some funny parts in the story and there were parts I found to be slow at times but overall, it was a good read with a sweet ending.

WOW! I love a great romantic comedy, and this fabulous book certainly fit that category! Jane has a “thing” for Aiden, and has for a while. Then that night happened, the night they were going to finally…. they fell asleep watching TV. Jane realizes, Aiden is never going to feel for her, the way she feels for him. Her friend forces her to take a road trip, visiting places that will make her get over Aiden. Starting at his bar, where she will burn……. Stop, no spoilers. But, how is she supposed to get over Aiden, when he sweet talks her into giving him a ride. I LOVED watching Jane and Aiden fall for each other. Stop, by stop during their journey, they both realize that what they thought about what happened that night, may not be what actually happened. Risking It, is the second book in Ms. Quarles Stolen Moments series. Each book can be read as a stand-a-lone. I really enjoyed reading this book. It kept me hooked until the very last word. Thank heavens for vacations, because I could not put it down. I was gifted with a copy of this wonderful book by the publisher, via NetGalley for my honest review. In my opinion, if you like a good rom/com, this book is definitely for you. Thank you for reading my review.
