Worth The Risk by Robin Bielman

Worth The Risk by Robin Bielman.
Audience/Genre : Adult/Romance.
Publication : April 25th 2012 by Ever After (Entangled Publishing).

Their love was ancient history...until their paths crossed again.

Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he's back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career--if he doesn't steal her heart first. Samantha's vowed to hate him, but it's more than anger heating the competition between them.

With sparks flying across the conference table and sizzling in every touch, Dean proposes a weekend liaison. Anything to have Sam again; anything to get her out of his system. But the unresolved feelings between them complicate both their personal and professional lives, and one wild weekend could turn into a disaster that would destroy the one job that means more to Samantha than anything. For a shot at love...is it worth the risk?

Yup, that pretty much sums it up.

I've officially changed my mind about novellas/short stories. They can be pretty amazing and this book proved that because it had me smiling and swooning in such a short time. I started reading Worth The Risk late last night and I picked it up because I knew I didn't want to stay up all night reading again. I wanted a quick, happy read and Worth The Risk was perfect for that.

Dean and Samantha share a past together, they're each other's first and only love but as it's expected from most men in their early twenties, Dean's priorities rested somewhere else and he left Sam heartbroken. Years later, they meet again as competitors trying to land the same account but their professional rivalry just ends up bringing memories/emotions from the past but will Sam's not sure if she trusts Dean enough not to break her heart again.

It's really hard for me to believe that this is Robin Bielman's debut because it's one of the most well written romances I've come across, especially for a book that's less than 200 pages! The chapters transitioned smoothly and the story had a good, solid pace through out. The chemistry between Dean and Sam is awesome and Robin Bielman may have just written one of the hottest kisses to exist in the romance genre - really, it's one hell of a kiss!

Romance lovers will thoroughly enjoy this story, it doesn't fall short in anyway. I loved every moment of this book, right from start to finish. The story was clearly written after a lot of research as Sam and Dean's character background isn't one that can be pulled out of thin air,. Robin Bielman is definitely a romance author to watch out for and I can't wait to read more books by her! Robin's writing style and story has the feel of a Julie James novel and if you like her books, you'll love Worth The Risk!
