A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy. THE RISK takes you back to the world of hot hockey players, feisty heroines, bro banter, and steamy scenes...
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.

is the second full length romance novel in Elle Kennedy’s ‘Briar U' which are a series of interconnected stand-alones. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives'

Brenna Jensen is the daughter of Chad who is Briar Hockey Team's coach and Summer's best friend who we met in THE CHASE. She doesn't let many people in, she's tough as nails, sassy, sexy and smart with a take no shit attitude. So to see her connection developing with Jake the captain and the star hockey player at Harvard University, which we met briefly in THE CHASE I couldn't wait to see how this would play out. Harvard and Briar are rivals with that being said, these two together should've been a no go area. Her father would skin her alive if she ever dated the enemy, and Jake is definitely the enemy!!

Straight off the bat these two are at loggerheads, the banter is steamy, it's funny, and you know it's going to lead to them straight to the bedroom. 

"Want to make out some more before we go?" 
Jake's tone is boyishly hopeful.
His gaze turns devilish
"How about a blowjob?"
Aw, I appreciate the offer, but I don't have a penis.

Jake Connelly doesn't do girlfriends, though he does have a revolving door into his bedroom, other than getting off his main priority is Hockey, he lives and breathes it, he's the IT man on the ice. He's arrogant, knows what he wants in life and nothing is going to get in his way of getting there. 

He doesn't do distractions and he think girls and partying are a huge distraction so puts the team on lock down and to make some sacrifices until they make it to the finals. But things don't always go to plan. 

Brianna has always wanted to become a sports journalist but with it being dominated by the male gender it's going to be hard getting her foot in the door. She's majoring in Broadcasting and Journalism at Briar. 

This was one of my most highly anticipated books for 2019, the slight forbidden aspect of it had me gasping to get my hands on it. Forbidden to date a hockey player from an opposing team, add to the equation Brenna hiding her new relationship from her father this all made for an angsty read of goodness. For me it was a slow burn, it only really started to pick up at the half way mark, which made it slow to ignite, but once these two gave into their attraction it ignited off the pages and I found myself rooting for these two.
