Review: Risk Me (Silver Strands #2) by Lexi Scott

Risk Me

Synopsis


For Cohen Rodriguez, getting dumped by his girlfriend was bad enough. Being told he's “not impulsive enough” was just the cheap parting gift. Still, he takes a break from his ├╝ber responsible ways and dates his way through Silver Strand. Except it's not exactly turning out the way he thought...

On top of that, there's Maren Walshe, whose combination of sexy and down-to-earth is everything Cohen wants in a girl. But while they've recently been talking on the phone and texting every day, they've never actually met. Now Maren wants to meet. In person.

Faced with turning his oh-so-safe fantasy girl into an uncertain reality, Cohen and Maren are both about to dive head first, ready or not.

4-Stars Review

This is a story about taking chances, letting go of the past and moving forward. First half of the book is light-hearted, full of humour and a lot of texting. Maren and Cohen talk on phone almost everyday. They are co-workers, both love their daily phone call but never tell that to each other. Cohen is in a committed relationship and Maren's life is a mess. Then circumstances led them to actually meet and its infatuation at first sight. Cohen wants to date her but Maren is not ready as her life is too complicated to involve another person. What she doesn't know is that Cohen will not rest until he get what he wants, in this case its her.

The second half of the book has more serious tone as we get to know Maren's past and what's holding her back. But together they both can overcome every single hurdle in their way. They can solve every problem only if they believe in each other and accept help.
The story is well-written and I liked all characters. It was a fun and entertaining read.
