Risk It All is the second of Scarlett Finn’s Risk series. I have to say that though the book contains some sex, it is much tamer than others of her books I’ve read. The romantic hero is tender and gentle to his lover, unlike other couples in previous novels by this author. The heroine was a victim of a human trafficking ring and as such has issues to overcome. The hero is accommodating and sensitive to her needs. The Warner family considers Bri bad for Blaser because she always brings trouble with her. After several years of separation Blaser is determined to win her back and keep her. All Bri has ever wanted is to settle down with Blaser and live a normal life. But, trouble follows her with an antagonist that expects payment of a debt that she had nothing to do with. The past comes back to haunt Bri and Blaser threatening to separate them forever. There is plenty of fast action in this thriller.
Bri and Blaser, the main characters in this novel, can be found as ancillary characters in other novels. There is much overlap of minor characters with small hints of their stories that are found in other novels. Once you’ve read any of her novels you will want to read all of her books just to get to know her characters more.
Like other novels I’ve read by Ms. Finn, “Risk It All” is well written with an intriguing plot that captured my interest and held it to the end. Like her other books, I couldn’t put it down for long and read it in a day’s time. Her character development is excellent. Knowing some of the minor characters from other novels she maintained the essentials of their personalities from other works. She has a consistency of personalities between novels that makes me want to know all her characters better.
The editing of this book was excellent and the writing flows right along. Sailing through the river of her words sometimes on a gentle stream and other times through the white water rapids was exhilarating. The story and characters are never boring and frequently unpredictable. This book is for adults 18 and over. If you like suspenseful crime novels where tarnished heroes are redeemed for the sake of love, then you will enjoy this novel. I give this a five star review.
