A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy. THE RISK takes you back to the world of hot hockey players, feisty heroines, bro banter, and steamy scenes...

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.

I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.

For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.

That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

Megan’s Review

In my opinion, no one writes a sports romance as impeccable as Elle Kennedy. The Risk is Briar U’s second instalment and was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Elle’s writing is always right on point and written with such precision, passion, thought and creativity. I absolutely loved The Risk from start to finish… it was positively perfect.

Brenna is the coach of Briar U’s Hockey team’s daughter and she is such a fierce and sassy character and I knew I was going to be drawn to her almost instantly. Jake is the captain and star of Harvard University Hockey team and also happens to be one of Briar U’s most feared rivals.

When Brenna and Jake started the dating game it was all meant to be some harmless fun, but things start becoming complicated when intense feelings develop. To say that Brenna’s dad would be less than impressed if he found out about her dates with Jake would be a massive understatement.

I loved both Brenna and Jake together; their intense sexual attraction and chemistry was purely electrifying and I thrived on the anticipation of these two forbidden lovers overcoming the many hurdles that they would face. This sexy and steamy story was so hot I literally thought my kindle was going to spontaneously combust.

If you love your enemies to lovers and sports romances than definitely check out Kennedy’s newest release The Risk because it is sure to impress.
