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?
Worth the risk was a interesting and fresh take on what happens when we have to decide between letting go of the man we love or go flat out after the career we so desperately want. It was a quick, fun and easy read.
Dean and Samantha were each in their own right brilliant and entertaining characters but together they were pure romance and fun! I loved how the author let the the wheels turn and instead of Dean being the one to leave the relationship as in the past this time around it was Sam that had to make the hard decisions.
I was expecting as most short stories are a they meet again, get back together and she makes a few picks here and there and voila the end. But instead I discovered a story all though short had just enough emotion and depth to pack the same punch as a full lenght novel would.
As I said the book was short read but it made quite the delightful lasting impression on me.
Well done Robin on a wonderful debut!
