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?

Nice second story in the series
- K. April Holgate
Absolutely Fun Series Keep Them Coming!
The second in the series which I hope becomes a huge hit.
We were introduced to Jake in the previous book Finding Harmony." Jake is the overambitious brother (of Rick) working toward his dad's approval.
Jake is shipped down to Cyprus Florida to work on a project and make sure it is completed on or before the projected deadline.
Claire is the buttoned up, straight laced, OCD heroine. She is very standoffish about starting a relationship with Jake. However, she decides that she can have a no strings attach fling with the man that will be leaving the area in a couple of months. He feels the same of her.
They soon discovered that emotions, both good and bad, are playing into their mental, love & physical relationship as neither expected.
It is there is a believable plot amongst some racy scenes. I enjoyed it very much.
Wendy Rich Stetson is personable and professional. There are many characters and if I needed to stop listening, I was able to pick it up again and know exactly who was speaking and which character. She brought life to the story and I am glad that she was chosen to read these two books as she is a perfect fit.
As in my review for the first book by JoMarie DeGioia this series reminds me very much of Shannon Stacy and her Kowalski family series. The plot can be somewhat dark or totally superficial and they are spot on.
Notes: As with previous book there are mature scenes in it but they are somewhat tastefully done. There were also a few cuss sports, if that bothers you.
Credit worthy/$: Absolutely on both counts. I will be looking out to see if there are additional titles available from Audible. I do want to hear more of her work. *I was given a copy to listen to, in exchange for m,y thoughts, opinion and this review.*
