Publisher's Summary

The girl afraid of taking chances. The guy always looking for his next thrill. Staying on the ground or soaring through the air... Falling in love is the biggest risk of all.
Jake Chapman loses himself in extreme sports to fill the emptiness in his life. But when he meets CPA Claire Callahan at Cypress Corners, he wants to spend his visit proving to her that living in the moment is worth the risk.
Claire cares for her ailing father, a compulsive gambler who repeatedly risked all they had in the quest for a new high. When she falls for Jake, beloved uncle to her close friends' little boy, she throws her own caution to the wind for once in her life. But his risk-taking soon shows her he's as addicted to the rush as her father is, and she won't put her heart in danger.
Can Jake be the man Claire needs to keep her heart safe? Or will his thirst for adventure keep him from taking the biggest risk of all?

Hooked on this series

I loved the first book in this series, and HAD to go back for more. And, I'm definitely going back in for book 3. The characters are very likeable, down to earth, and real. And I love that they really think about their actions when getting into their relationship. Not everyone is so free and willing to have an intimate fling. And, while I can enjoy that story just as much, I do also relate to people who don't just feel comfortable jumping into a fling relationship that has no future, or doesn't appear to. These characters have more depth and are trying to make more rational and responsible decisions that many people try make. We are not all ruled by our hormones. Still, this story doesn't lack for steam or anticipation. It's just another fun and interesting visit to Cypress Corners. I'll be visiting again soon.
As usual, Wendy Rich Stetson did a FANTASTIC job. She just has a way of making the characters come to life and is so easy to listen to. They are full of feeling, and dare I say, character. It's an enjoyable ride I'm looking forward to taking again soon!

Nice second story in the series

Book two in the series picks up a few years after the first book. It is all about middle child Jake and his free flying lifestyle. Pair him up with meticulous Claire, who seems a touch OCD, and it is a dynamic opposites attract!

I loved Claire, she has a terrific back story and some fun surprises. I loved the dynamic with Jake, such fun banter. He does a great job of bringing her playful side to the forefront.

This is a mixed narrative, so you get both leads POV. This really helps you understand where they are coming from and the romance is fuller.

There is a bit of smexy here, a nice touch of detail but not nearly as hawt as an erotic read. Still, open bedroom door that heats things up considerably.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Wendy Rich Stetson, who is delightful. I enjoyed her pace and the energy she infuses into the read. She has a wonderful feel for the romance and characters. It is a great match and I hope to see her in the next book as well.

I loved the supporting cast here, another appearance from brash Lettie is a laugh riot. I was also surprised to find I want to get a romance for man eater Tracy, I hope that is her name gonna have to check it.

Disclosure – I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts opinions and ratings are my own. I was under no obligation to post a review or give positive feedback.

*** I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed; all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!
