This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.

It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.

But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?

Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen.

But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles.

But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life.

And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?


Review

4.5 ‘Choosing risks’ Stars!

ARC provided by the author via Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.

K. Bromberg just delivers success after success! I fell in love with the Malone brothers in Cuffed and since I adore single parent themed romances, I was eagerly awaiting to read Grayson’s story. Of course, you can imagine that Kristy did not disappoint her readers (since she never does!). The woman is one of my favorite authors and she one of the best when it comes to a emotional slow burn romance. Worth the Risk surely is that and so much more!

So, Worth the Risk is K. Bromberg’s newest release and it can be read as a standalone novel but I do highly recommend reading the other Malone’s stories (Cuffed and Combust) because these hot heroes will blow your mind! Now, Grayson Malone is one hell of a hero. He is a rescue helicopter pilot and single dad of an adorable kid called Luke. Enter Sidney Thorton, a woman coming from wealth but who just wants her father to see she is capable of being the best editor in chief of their fashion magazine. First, she has to save another of their magazines and what better way than a Hot Dad contest? Well, someone is not very happy his brothers sign him in on said contest and now Sidney has a lot of work on her hands. Let’s say the rest is history!

I can’t get enough.
I’m mad at her.
I want her.
I don’t want to want her.
Christ, do I want her.
 

Do I adore emotional love stories! Kristy is an amazing writer, I love how she develops her stories and the building of her characters and the relationships between them. In this case, Sidney is someone who reminds Grayson of his past and the selfish woman that left him and his little one for money. What is the consequence of that? Grayson is not happy with Sidney’s presence in his life at the start. He wants to focus on getting back on track, he wants to focus on his life with Luke and he definitely does not want to feel what he feels for Sidney. Man, I loved the slow burn. These two have sparks from the very first moment and let me tell you, the outcome was explosive!

She tastes like heaven and hell. Like want and need. Like deception and desire. 

The chemistry between this couple is simply unstoppable. Grayson and Sidney will make you melt all over the place with all those sexy and emotional scenes. You’ll love seeing more of the Malone brothers togehter too. And you will fall in a puddle of goo with all those absolutely sweet moments with Luke. He is the best kid and I totally get why Grayson wants to protect him with everything that he has. It’s beautiful to see how he starts trusting Sidney, how they develop their love relationship together with Luke and how that ends in a very much deserved happy ending. You all know how much I love them!

“You are the risk I chose to take. You are the one I choose.” 

Therefore, I am rating Worth the Risk with 4.5 STARS because it was the love story that I envisioned for Grayson Malone and I am so happy he found his soulmate in Sidney and how lovely they are as a family together with Luke. Also, it was great to keep seeing the other Malone’s and their loved ones. I will surely miss these characters because now they have a place in my heart. But I am excited because we will get to read another story on this world about the sassy Desi Whitman! If you haven’t read this series and you are a fan of K. Bromberg’s work, be sure to check it out because it’s so worth it! 😉

Excerpt

But by the time I reach her, my blood boils with irrationality spurred on by too much alcohol.“Can I have a moment?” I ask as I walk up to her and grab her elbow, pushing her down the darkened hallway.“What is your problem?” She hisses as she fights me every step of the way.

We get looks. I get looks. I don’t care because all I keep seeing is Vince’s hands on her arm. His eyes on her tits. His bullshit game I can spot a mile away.

I find the closest door down the hallway leading to the bathrooms, and it opens. I push her through it, barely noticing that it’s an office of sorts before the door is shut, her back is up against it, and my mouth is covering hers.

Take.

Goddammit. That’s my only thought as I fit my lips to hers and take out my anger on her mouth with tongue and teeth and every fucking lick and nip in between.

“What—”

“I’m so pissed at you.”

It’s all I say. It’s the only chance I give her to come up for air before my lips are back on hers. Before my tongue wars with hers. Before my body admits it would beg, borrow, and steal in order to taste every other part of her.

Groan.

I swallow the tiny sound she makes in our kiss as my hands hold her neck still and my lips wage an all-out assault. She hesitates—just a split second—before she reacts. Before her body bows into me, and her mouth argues back.

Fist.

Her hand in my shirt. Her other hand at the back of my neck as our bodies meet—pressed knee to chest. Her perfume in my nose. Her hair tickling my cheeks. The feel of her tits against my chest.

Give.

I can’t get enough.

I’m mad at her.

I want her.

I don’t want to want her.

Christ, do I want her.

“Gray.” A murmured protest.

I tear my lips from hers, shove off the door I have her pressed against, and stride to the other side of the room.

“You are . . . you just . . .” It’s as if I can barely breathe. Christ, I’m mad at you.”

She stands there, lips parted, chest heaving, and golden brown curls messed from my hands, but her eyes look hurt. A hurt I don’t want to see but can’t deny.

“Why?”

“You did this,” I accuse as I try to manage the anger that’s waging a war against my desire.

“Did what?” Her eyes narrow. Her hand goes to press against her chest.

“Made me want you.”

Grayson: I’ve been thinking about you all day.

I look down at the text and smile before turning my attention back to Rissa and our plans for how we’re going to end this round of voting and move on to the top five.

“So, I think we close it out and then maybe take the next week and announce one of the finalists each day. Give little tidbits about each of them, make readers like them more, just have fun with it.”

My phone beeps again with another text, and I bite back the new grin trying to form on my lips. Rissa only huffs, eyeing my phone with annoyance. “Sorry, let me turn my ringer off.”

And then I have to feign nonchalance when I look down at my phone and find another text.

Grayson: My dick is rock hard, and it’s you I’m imagining. It’s in my hand when I’d rather it be in your mouth with my fingers in your pussy, working you into a frenzy.

“Is everything okay?” Rissa asks, making me realize I must have made a noise when I read the text. “You look startled.”

I glance back at the text again and shake my head while every part of my body comes to life. “Yeah, it’s, uh, fine.”

“Your ringer.” Her brows are lifted as she glances to my phone and then back to me.

My finger?” I squeak, thinking she saw the phone screen.

“Ringer. Sound on your phone.”

“Oh, yes . . . sorry.” Flustered, I fumble with my cell, and before I can even switch it off, another text alert pings.

Grayson: I want to bend you over and watch as my cock slides in and out of you.

“So back to next week . . .”

“Yes,” I swallow over the desire lodged in every place it should be and try not to glance at my phone as it vibrates again.

“Are you good with that plan?” Rissa asks as I shift in my seat to abate the sudden ache burning brighter than bright.

“Yes. Sure. I think that sounds like a great plan.”

Grayson: I want my cock buried so deep that you feel every damn inch of me.

“Are you sure you’re okay?”

“Yeah, why?” My voice breaks like a prepubescent teenager.

Grayson: I want you to come so hard you have to bite the pillow.

“You look a little flushed. Are you coming down with something?”

Grayson: You always have a choice. Isn’t that what you said to me once? Make a choice, Sidney. Isn’t it time to head to lunch?

“I mean, yeah, maybe.” I pull at my collar some. “Maybe that’s why I feel so flushed all of a sudden.”

Grayson: Meet me on the backside of The Cottages. Room Six. Fifteen minutes.

“Either that,” she says as she stands and heads to the door, only turning back to give me a wink, “or you’re guilty as hell. Maybe you should go take care of that itch texting you . . . or take some Tylenol. Whichever one it is, I think you should take the afternoon off.”

Grayson: Choose me.

“Oh.” It’s the only thing I can think to say because my brain is otherwise occupied imagining Grayson following through on his promises.

“And, Sid?”

“Yeah?”

“I sure hope he’s every bit worth breaking the rules.” She winks. “It’s about damn time. Your secret is safe with me.”
