Never underestimate the con!
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Length (Est.): 217 Pages
Jennifer Chance’s Rule Breakers series turns up the heat as a wealthy playboy and a beautiful con artist engage in a high-stakes game of seduction.
As dominating in business as he is in bed, Rand Sterling Winston, IV, always gets what he wants. And even before he realizes that she’s scammed him into paying triple the cost for her friend’s painting, he wants Dani Michaels. To catch her alone, Rand demands she personally deliver his purchase. The attraction between them is immediate and electric, and he knows she feels it, too. So when the part-time petty thief rebuffs his advances, he gives her a choice: a night in jail or an evening with him.
Despite her checkered past, Dani has never met someone like Rand: brooding, intense, and oh-so tempting. Only a man with a broken soul could make losing control feel this dangerous. Still, when Rand proposes a no-strings, no-holds-barred affair, Dani’s more than a little intrigued. It’ll be the trickiest con she’s ever run and a chance to indulge her steamiest fantasies—nothing more. But as their encounters grow increasingly intimate, Dani uncovers a vulnerable side to Rand’s steely exterior . . . and opens her heart to the ultimate risk.
*I received this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*
Dani learned the skills necessary to get through life and she’s good at what she does, whether it’s tending bar, a little B&E, or pulling a con over an unexpecting victim. When her mark turns out to be the one pulling the strings she will do what she needs to get what she wants.
Rand likes to get his way and does not like to be played the fool. He knew what Dani was way before he knew who she was. He could see the fire in her eyes and the determination and strength she used in all things. She was something new and he couldn’t let her escape without getting what he wanted…only thing is…what did he truly want?
Risk It is a giant con where the playing field is so evenly matched that the power sways back and forth between two alpha characters. Rand and Dani both fight for that power, until they realize that all that power struggle was more than it should have been and lines were pushed further than imaginable.
It has a good storyline. There are some parts where it kind of droned on and I lost interest, but overall it was a good read. There is however a lot of sex, some detailed, some not so much, but nevertheless there’s a lot.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: It’s amazing how a little trinket can set off alarms and summon the police.
My Favorite Moment: I loved it when Dani stood up to Catherine and mentioned how she could still borrow Rand whenever she needed an escort.
