She'll complicate his plans in the naughtiest ways...
I guess I'm not in Paris anymore. Emily Gardner has returned to her hometown in Kansas to collect her things after her mother's death. But the moment she steps back into the town, it's like the past has swallowed her up. Memories of her wild and reckless teenaged years. Of her father's disappointment. But it's her childhood crush who wakens something even deeper in Emily...
Mitch Taylor believes in having a Plan. His life, his business―all neat and orderly. But with Emily's return comes a whirlwind of feelings and temptations. Risk. Longing. And ultimately, a desire so strong that Mitch can't help but succumb to it. But Emily won't be tied down. Not to anything or anyone. And with one night of forbidden, sensual delight, all of Mitch's careful control will come completely undone...
Tori St. Claire is a new-to-me author and, since I love discovering new authors, I was excited to receive a copy of Her Forbidden Risk for review. Her Forbidden Risk was a great opposites attract story with a bit of second chance love. That’s a good combination for me. I’m a sucker for both of these tropes, so to have them together just made a lot of sense.
Emily returns home to deal with family matters. She’s outgrown Kansas. She never truly felt like she fit in as it was. She was reckless and wild and caused a lot of trouble. Her relationship with her father and brother was strained. The people in town talked about her. The only people on her side were her friend Andre and her childhood crush, Mitch. When she and Mitch reunite they realize there’s chemistry and an attraction there that can’t be denied. But, things could get messy because she’s not staying and Mitch isn’t the type of guy who is looking for a short-term, no strings attached fling.
Being completely honest, this book started off slow for me. I had a difficult time connecting with Emily and Mitch. But, as the story picked up steam, I found it difficult to put down. It had some great sweet and sexy moments. The chemistry between Emily and Mitch was apparent. The only think lacking was my connection with them. Even considering that, it was a quick and enjoyable read. I’ll be on the lookout for more from this author.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
