Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aurora Rose Reynolds comes a bittersweet romance about the risks and rewards of falling in love.

Everly never expected to move back in with her parents, and she definitely didn’t expect to do so as a single mother. But with the father of her son suddenly out of the picture, she’s had to make some adjustments to her plans.

Now Everly has one priority: to make a life for herself and her boy. And Blake, her sometimes infuriating but admittedly handsome employer at Live Life Adventures, doesn’t factor into her future as anything more than her boss.

But it seems the guy who’s about as friendly as a grizzly bear has a soft spot for her and her son...and the more time she spends with him, the more difficult it is to remember why giving in to the chemistry between them is a bad idea.

Now, with their future on the line, they’ll have to decide if love is a risk worth taking.

Critic reviews

“Reynolds’s first-rate characters—Blake especially will melt readers’ hearts with his sweet interactions with baby Sampson—and perfect pacing, paired with lively prose, will keep readers hooked to the very end. This is a winner.”Publishers Weekly

Blake & Everly

Listening to this on audio just made it even better! So startlingly realistic but at the same time all the best outcomes for the happiest of happily ever afters. I felt so much emotion for Everly as a single mom, for Blake with his family issues, for Blake’s sister, for Maverick. I could feel it all. I’ll be going through withdrawal for days. And I loved every minute of it and can’t wait for more!

Female narrator was unbearable

I had a really difficult time finishing this. The female narrator sounded like she wears Invisalign or has cotton in her mouth. The pronunciation reminded me of Britney Spears. It really took away from the story which wasn’t great to begin with. Basic run of the mill, definitely not sitting on the edge of your seat.

Great Series! Great Characters! Wonderfully done!

I enjoy this series! Blake..Oh Blake you are a special guy! Granted you come off grumpy but eventually you see the light and become the great man we all are proud of. Everly is a sweetie! And her son? Adorable! I loved their scenes together!

Secondary characters are just fun! I mean Maverick, Tanner and Cybil..they all have that wonderful friend camaraderie going on that is a joy to read/listen. Blake’s family was fun and yet sad at the same time. I was pleased they were all so open to Everly and Sampson.

Overall the story is heartbreaking, fun and filled with so many cute moments. The characters are very life-like and adorable that is what makes they stories rise up to the next level. I did listen to this on audio. Avie Page and Oliver Clarke are both new to me narrators. They each did a wonderful job making me believe they are the characters. Nicely done and I can’t wait for Mavericks story!

Risking it all

I love Aurora’s books and this series had me addicted from the start. Risky is book 2 but can be read as a standalone. I loved every second of Everly and Blake’s story. It’s a cute AF workplace romance with a grumpy grizzly bear of a hero and a sweet independent single mom.

The chemistry between these pages and characters had me enthralled from start to finish. Blake is hot and grumpy but sure knows how to be charismatic and loving. And he was a goner as much for Everly ad well as her little boy. I loved the sweet and simple moments, the laugh out loud and swoony moments, as well as the emotion filled moments and there was plenty of all of the above. Everly doesn’t have it easy in her predicament and neither does Blake but once they’re able to work together and open up it’s just beautiful

I’m obsessed with this world and can’t wait for the next book! The Audio was perfect and sensational in my ears
