Worth the Risk (Everyday Heroes #3) by K. Bromberg

This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.

It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time.To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dadcontest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.

But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult.And did I mention sexy as hell?

Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before.Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen. 

But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles. 

But he got to me. They got to me.Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life. 

And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

For three brothers that come from an incredibly loving family, life has seriously messed with these guys. And I think Gray may have gotten the short end…

I was looking forward to Gray, but that man has some serious baggage and I’m not sure he was ready to take on Sidney’s baggage on top of his own. What I can say is he was a great dad. I loved how he made him the priority, but you could tell his son was starved for some female/motherly attention. What I cannot figure out is how Gray and his rich bitch ex-girlfriend ever made it to the living together stage. 

At first, I thought Sidney was a horrible match for Gray. She seemed like a carbon copy of his ex. She came across as a spoiled brat, even though were hints that she had some hidden qualities that showed she wasn’t what she appeared. The loyalty she had for her friend Zoey went a long way towards helping me like her. And I loved that her dad made her work for what she wanted.

Their relationship was destined to be rough. But, if you like a good dose of drama, with a sweet single dad, pick this book up. In fact, pick up the whole Everyday Heroes series. The brothers are definitely worth getting to know.
