The Risk by Elle Kennedy – Review

The captain of the Harvard hockey team. The daughter of the Briar hockey coach. Jake and Brenna aren’t supposed to like each other. The two teams are bitter rivals. Jake is NHL bound, and will stop at nothing to win the hockey national championship for Harvard. Brenna is sassy and independent, ready to make her mark in the world of sports reporting. She knows she’ll have to pay her dues and she’s prepared. But when her internship interview goes awry Brenna needs Jake’s help, and he’s willing to oblige….for a price. As the two navigate through their fake date and real date, they realize that their chemistry is off the charts.  What starts off as a date of convenience turns into a journey that neither were prepared for. Can Jake make room for a love besides hockey in his life? And can Brenna move forward from her past and open up to Jake?

The small amount of interaction that these two had in the 1st book in the Briar U series, The Chase, made the reader want more, and Elle came through….big time! The banter between these two (as well as the secondary characters in the book) leave you laughing and eagerly turning the page to see what happens next. The Risk does touch on some darker themes, but all in all this was an upbeat book that kept me turning the page! Elle continually gives you a glimpse into old and new characters that leave you pleased with the outcome of the main characters but begging for more from the others. Hopefully Elle will give us more with another book in the series.

I absolutely adore every book that Elle writes. Every time I get a newsletter or see a new post in her Facebook group I can’t wait to see what she’s writing next. Keep ‘em coming Elle!
