The Risk (Briar U #2) by Elle Kennedy
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.
Elle Kennedy has totally done it again. I’m completely smitten with this charming story in the Briar U series.
Real talk. Brenna is my favorite character in the whole Briar universe. She was funny, confident and a complete ball buster. Her dynamic and chemistry was fantastic with not only the hero in the story but every single character she was in a scene with. I love love love it when authors write heroines that can hold their own with an alpha, and Brenna is definitely that.
This series has a string of some of my favorite book boyfriends of all time. Jake is right there with them. He was equally confident, sexy, and the perfect amount of alpha for me. I loved how he pursued Brenna. He admired her fire and attitude but didn’t let that side of her push him away.
The chemistry between the two was soooo good. I could have read about these two forever.
I can think of one thing I didn’t like about this story. It put a smile on my face long after i finished reading and I’m dying for the next book in the series. Kudos Elle.
